Top tips for hiring a car at Redding airport

  • When looking out for the designated area for car hire at Redding Airport you need to be aware of three different areas in the airport. The first area is the customer service counter area which is well marked in the arrivals terminal. The next area is the pickup and drop-off areas, which are one and the same. You can find this area by exiting the building terminal, turning right and then walking down the walkway all the way to the north side of the airport. The last area is applicable to after-hours drop-offs, which happen in a parking lot on the outside of the arrivals terminal. Each different agency has a demarcated row of parking bays. Find your bay, lock the car and drop the keys and your contract in the box provided!
  • If you are planning on adventuring in the mountain ranges in Redding, you will need to consider a suitable type of vehicle for car hire at Redding Airport. We would suggest you specifically look for off-road SUVs or 4x4 cars and opt for a manual transmission to make downshifting on those inclines a breeze.
  • Be sure to check the cancellation charge on the KAYAK website under the 'whats included' section as most car hire at Redding Airport does not offer a payment refund if you do need to cancel your booking. Some companies do offer a waiver of the fee if you cancel at least 48h before your collection date.
  • The most popular fuel plan for Redding Airport car hire services is the ‘like for like’ plan. You will be asked to pay a deposit via your credit card for the fuel already in the car which will be a blocked payment on your card and are expected to return the car with the same amount of fuel to get that deposit back.
  • Book your car hire at Redding airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Redding airport

  • How does the fastbreak service differ from the normal Redding Airport car hire procedures?

    Fastbreak is a great service that will allow you to avoid standing in the normal line at the service desk. If you have booked your car hire at Redding Airport online previously, you can use the speedy fastbreak line, where you will receive a contract, the keys and directions to the car lot. No waiting around, paying for anything, or signing any contracts will need to be done. This service is mostly beneficial for dropping off your car as all you need to do is fill in your mileage and fuel level on your previously supplied contract and place it in a drop box at the drop-off car lot. You can expect a closed rental agreement to be sent to you via email within at least 48h.

  • How do I pay the security deposit?

    You will need to pay the security deposit online if you intend to make use of the fastbreak service. If not, then a credit card is required at the customer service desk to collect the car. No virtual cards, cheques or debit cards are excepted. Only cards that display the relevant information in raised embossed characters on the card are allowed.

  • What are the operating hours of car hire agencies at Redding Airport?

    All the agencies operate seven days a week. On weekdays they are available from 09:00 till 16:00 and have reduced hours on Saturdays and Sundays. On these weekend days, they are operational from 09:00 till 13:00, however, an after-hours drop-off service is available for all, and if you have made your booking beforehand on the KAYAK site and are using the fastbreak feature, you will only need to pick up your keys and contract for collection.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Redding airport?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Redding airport to off-airport locations include Avis, Budget, and Hertz.

Amazing things: when I discovered I could not get to my destination without 4wd (freak snow storm), I called and was told that I could switch out my current rental for a suitable vehicle at no charge. The attendants at all 3 locations I visited throughout my trip were extremely kind and helpful. Somewhat less amazing- I could not get anyone in a local office on the phone. Luckily the CS team at the call center we’re right in their information about switching out but at the time my only option was to backtrack 2 hours to the closest open location and I was worried that I would get all the way there and no inventory would be available. Not being able to contact the individual Budget locations and actually being disconnected several times trying to get through their automated system was frustrating in a stressful situation. My first car was also a bit dirty but I wasn’t super worried about that, but it did prevent me from giving 5 stars for cleanliness

We weren’t able to rent the car. The guy at the counter was rude and pushy. He said they didn’t take our form of payment(which was a credit card). Also called and said that we couldn’t use the pickup time we asked for cause they closed at the time was asked for. Had to go to another rental and pay almost twice the price

Pros:

Very friendly-went above and beyond. My phone must have fallen out of my purse into the rental. I had no idea, returned the car, got in my sister’s car and we left. The woman working there found it so quickly, somehow knew which car I’d gotten into and she found us to get my phone to me. I didn’t get her name, but her action saved me so much stress and worry. I would not have expected she could find us out there and save the day! Brilliant!

Cons:

The car wasn't immediately ready when I arrived, and I was displeased with the lack of assurance that the vehicle provided would accomodate five passengers as stated online...it's the only reason I opted for the intermediate at the time I placed the order. Also, no CD Player.

Sneaky added charges of $10-15 not reflected in the initial quote from Kayak. I don't know if this is a Kayak problem or an Avis problem, bit I don't like being given a quote for total charges that then goes up when I drop off the car. Kayak/Avis need to get their sh!t together.

Pros:

The car was clean and lived up to my expectations. I was happy to see I could plug my phone into the car for navigation etc.

Cons:

I reserved the car thinking I would pick it up at the airport. The rental at the airport had no record. When I showed them my receipt they looked on line and found that the car was at the downtown location. I have never been in this area before and didn't realize there were two places. I chose the first one that came up on the website. The woman Avis rep changed it for me but the price was more that originally. When we arrived at the airport we found our flight cancelled and no room for us on the later flight. Another storm was due in the next day so I didn't think things would improve. We were able to get a flight out of Sacramento so I asked the Avis rep about taking the car to Sacramento. Their computers were down so I was told to just go ahead and drive to Sacramento and turn in the car there and everything would be fine. When I turned the car in I had to pay an additional fee that I was not told about before hand.

Pros:

I needed a car for a little more than a month. I got a Hundai Elantra that averaged 38 mpg (compared to my personal Jeep, that's a sipper!). It was comfortable to sit in for many hours a day, had plenty of pep and a steady cruise control. After 4600 miles, I'm very pleased with my rental.

Cons:

The first car the agent brought out was a dingy looking car with a noticeably stained interior. I couldn't bear the thought of living with someone else's orange soda and coffee stains for a month, so I asked for a cleaner car. The agent complied.

Pros:

Personable and fast. Our reserved car was not available so we got a free upgrade! After a 12 hour road trip, we were surprised by how comfortable we still were. No hidden fees. No BS. Just great service! Very affordable! Will rent from again!

Cons:

If your credit card is a debit card linked to your checking, you have to provide additional information and documentation that we weren't made aware of beforehand. However, the quick and courteous staff got everything handled over our cell phone.
