Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in San Diego?

Before picking up your cheap car hire in San Diego, there are a couple of requirements you'll have to meet and a few documents you'll need to bring with you. To start with, the minimum driving age is 21 years old, though you may be required to be at least 25 to hire a car at some places in San Diego. Regardless, if you're between the ages of 21 and 24, expect to incur an additional young driver surcharge on top of the standard car hire fee. Please provide a valid driving licence that you've held for at least one year. If your licence isn't in English, your car hire company will require an international driving permit coupled with your original licence. If you booked online, you'll need to produce the same credit card used, and the cardholder must be present. You'll also need to provide the confirmation details you received when booking. Please also ensure you bring some form of identification when picking up your hire car in San Diego.

What are the rules for driving in San Diego?

To be sure you're safe while driving your car hire in San Diego, make sure you're aware of the road rules and stay up to date with the local motor vehicle departments to stay apprised of any new changes to local laws. Traffic in San Diego flows on the right-hand side of the road and passes on the left-hand side. The driver and all passengers must wear their seatbelts at all times while inside the hired car. The use of mobile phones is only permitted in conjunction with a hands-free device. The legal blood alcohol limit while driving in San Diego is 0.08%, and breaking this law could result in hefty fines and possible jail time.

What type of car is recommended for driving in San Diego?

There are no right or wrong choices when it comes to picking your car hire in San Diego. Keep in mind that traffic congestion can be heavy during peak hours, so consider choosing a lighter vehicle for fuel-consumption purposes. If you're driving with your family, a Toyota Camry with a fair fuel policy is often a popular choice for many drivers hiring a car in San Diego. If you plan on doing long-distance trips, opting for car hire with cruise control will save you money in the long run.

Where are the best places to park in San Diego?

Car hire in San Diego is a lovely way to explore the city, but it often comes with some restraints in terms of parking.

Avoid parking on the street where there are no parking meters, and double-check signboards to make sure you're allowed to park where you are.
