You have to check different Car rental agencies in California and choose the best one. Focus on what is included in the deal, and find out whether any extra payments may arise when the car is returned. These add-ons can raise the original rental costs. They can include optional fuel purchase, extended insurance cover, collision damage waiver, delivery or drop-off charges, and vehicle rental tax. It is very important to check what exactly is included in the insurance policy offered by the rental company.
Everybody who is over over 25 and have a US or internationally valid driver’s license can rent a car in California. A major credit card is also important, as a guarantee.
Also be careful when traveling abroad because taking a rented car across the border into Mexico is not permitted without making an arrangement with the rent agency before that. The gas tank should be full when you return the vehicle.
Car rental is usually least expensive at the airports , but please call the free 800 numbers of the rental agencies before renting a car.
Rental cars in California generally have automatic transmission so it might be a new experience for you, especially if you are coming from Europe.
Some companies offer cars with manual transmission (stick-shift) on request.
You can also rent a motorbike like Harley-Davidson and for the family a RVs (motor homes).
