KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Union City

  • You might want a Union City car rental during your visit. The freedom to thoroughly explore the city and its surroundings is provided by renting a car. One of the sights you must see while in Union City is the Discovery Park of America, near the city center. The Douglas County Museum of History & Art will keep you busy if you still have time left on your schedule. If you wish to go on an adventure for the day, pack your bags and go to Redwood city. There is enough to keep you occupied from 10miles away. San Francisco ought to be on your list of locations as well. The separation is 25 miles.
  • If you're flying to Union City, you'll land at the San Francisco international airport. It is around 25 miles from Union City and is the closest airport that serves Union City. To go about the area, renting a car from the airport makes sense. Advantage, Dollar, Avis, Enterprise, Alamo, Budget, Fox, Payless, National, Hertz, and Thrifty are among the automobile rental companies at the airport. Passengers are picked up and dropped off by company shuttles at the baggage claim area. We advise travelers to book online because there may be discounts available.
  • If you opt for cheap car rentals in Union City, you should proceed with caution because severe weather regularly causes auto accidents. Aim to obey the posted speed limits and pay attention to any traffic signs. Another frequent issue among rent-a-car drivers, particularly those unfamiliar with Union City's topography, is automobile damage.
  • Avoid traveling during rush hour for your Union City car rental, as it may be time-consuming, especially if you're in a hurry. At 7:15 and 8:30 in the morning, rush hour begins. Between 5:00 and 7:30 in the evening is when rush hour occurs. In particular, if you're going to the airport, make sure to leave before these hours to prevent missing your flight. Flat Shoals Road and Jonesboro Road are the busiest roads in the city.
  • Book your car hire in Union City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Union City are around 17% more expensive than other car types, on average

My favorite car rental company in Fremont. They are SO nice. Service still matters.

Pros:

Seemed pretty simple to book

Cons:

The vehicle - a Nissan Frontier, i booked wasn’t available because they said the online stock of vehicles isn’t always accurate. They left me no choice to but to spend about $15 more on a big Dodge 2500 pickup truck to go biking. The truck is way too big for the purpose I needed and cost of fuel to power the monster is way higher then necessary. My whole point of renting vehicles is because I have other ways to commute to work so I don’t need a car on the day to day. I’m trying to be eco-conscious, so having behemoth of a vehicle for a single person to go ride a mountain bike is ridiculous.

Rented a car in one state and returning it in another state. The car given to us was so stinky of smoke - I was told that they had a no smoking policy. As we were non-smoker, we were happy to hear of the policy but little did we know, the car smelled so bad. We drove with window down even it was cold, and we had drive 71/2 hours in one day, second day was another 6 hours. Not the most pleasant experience. The staff was nice, but the car was not.

Pros:

The car handled well, was fairly new, and overall mostly enjoyable.

Cons:

The car had police evidence stickers still on it from god knows what. In addition, one morning the car would not start. I have experience as a mechanic and found that the positive battery terminal was loose and not making a good electrical connection. I fixed this and the car was fine for the rest of my trip. Needless to say, this should not happen and I should not need to diagnose and repair my own rental car. Perhaps a better pre-rental vehicle check would help?

Pros:

Staff was amazing and pick-up and drop-off instructions were very helpful and easy. I was very pleased with my interactions with staff members and felt they did a great job!

Cons:

I was disappointed in the selection of vehicles I was able to rent. I had paid for an intermediate SUV and was given an option between a small one and an intermediate one. I went with the intermediate Nissan Rogue because I was told that it both radar cruise control and apple car play, both of which I asked for when renting the vehicle. Unfortunately, neither of those features were available on the vehicle I rented and I ended up driving almost 2000 miles without them. I was disappointed in the comfort of the ride and the lack of features of the vehicle and won't be renting from Hertz in the future.

The car vi rented had some severe issues with the breaks. Every time we would break, the whole car would shutter. Probably warped break rotors. It was quite scary at times as our road trip was going through some mountain areas. We could not swap the car either, as we had packed it with several stuff as our road trip was for moving purposes. The stuff we had in the car took forever to pack since it had to be strapped down and secured etc.
