Excellent experienceWe picked up our rental in Fullerton CA. The person Went above and beyond and picked us up From the Train station and gave us a better vehicle that better suited our needs. Also Buget Opened up a hour earlier than the other car rental Companies. Since our train came in around 7:00 AM that made a huge decison in choosing Budget. Drop off went smooth as well overall a pleasant Car rental and the smoothest of the last 4 that I have had.

Will never rent from them againNothingI placed a rental got there and the representative was rude and said my car wasn't there and to go to the airport and pick up my car there. He then gave me 2 options on cars that would cost more than what I wanted to pay and said sorry but I can't help you. I called the rental place by the airport and they said I had to pay $350 for 2 day rental and I'm like no it's not my fault my vehicle wasn't there where it was suppose to be. I will never try to rent from them again

Newer car would have been better
8.0 ExcellentDec 8 2020
Overall was good. But it wasn’t explained to me about the flex fuel option on the dodge that I rented (e85/gasoline). Also, I wasn’t told that the vehicle was a 6 cylinder van. I would have requested a 4 cylinder to save on gas, although the van did not waste as much gas as I thought it would I know I spent a little more than I would have in a 4 cylinder vehicle. I didn’t know how to use the car remote to open the van doors and trunk doors. I had to figure that out on my own. I just think a better explaination about a vehicle being rented would help the customer ease into a vehicle that’s being rented given that some might not drive a vehicle that have certain options like remote doors and flex fuel. But overall we had a great experience. Thank you

The staff was amazing when I dropped off the vehicle rather than when I picked it up.Be more bubbly and courteous when helping customers out the whole process of picking up for me was awkward.
2.4 MediocreMay 28 2019
The staff was friendly, and courteous. But was extremely under staffed. The van I rented ran well For the long wait time (1 hr 15 min), and all the other foul ups, the Rep gave me a gas bonus.I already reserved online. So confirmation with the ID and credit card should all be that is needed, but it seems useless. As I had to register as if the online process is worthless. The minivan I rented, was dirty inside, & outside. It had stain marks on the seats, and carpet. The gas was not full
2.0 MediocreOct 18 2018
Totally UnsatisfactoryWhat good is it having a secured credit card that I can use all over the world but can't rent a car here in the United States? Doesn't make a lot of sense.
10.0 ExcellentApr 10 2018
Enterprise Rocks!It has always been my experience that Enterprise offers the best "value priced" service. It has been many years since I have had a need to rent a vehicle but my car developed a mechanical issue just prior to a planned road trip. I am so glad that I went with Enterprise. The entire staff was friendly, courteous, and highly responsive. Enterprise has been and always will be my first stop for vehicle rentals.
7.6 GoodSep 30 2017
Car was clean and comfortableReturning the car took nearly 35 minutes just to wait and hand over keys
7.2 GoodDec 31 2016
I like the free upgrade. I didn't have any problems with the vehicle at all.Seems like they were under staffed. Long line and wait for the counter as well getting the vehicle.
8.4 ExcellentDec 1 2015
Great Service!I only rent from this location due to close proximity to where I work and live, or the Balboa Ave location. Both rock!I had a leaky tire due to a nail and was disappointed there was not a full size replacement. Not having one added a five hour travel delay. I coordinated services with Enterprise through my auto insurance carrier, Geico. They allowed a full service tow back to Las Vegas Airport where I received a replacement quickly! Drove back to state line, for my friends. Despite the delay we made it home safely. I also received an additional 10% off a great 5 day rental rate!

Absolutely great experience.We got a brend new Caravan for 10 days trip. Originally it was SUV for $511.00 but we had an offer to change it for a better car without any hesitation or extra pay. Exelent service. Rep by name Carlo even drove me home after I drop off the car at the office. 12 out of 10. Highly recommended.None
5.2 OkayApr 3 2017
Renting a car?I like the location and access.I didn't like the choice of cars made available. Even though I called for a 10:00 pick up, I didn't leave site until 11:00!!. The upsale was a kill joy. You wanted me to upgrade but couldn't handle regular rental. Check out was a nitemare. Salespeople late and not helpful.
7.6 GoodMar 11 2016
Overall value for moneyConvenient place to pick up the car which was small in US terms but perfectly acceptable for me. Cleanliness of the car was OK and the fuel consumption was excellent. So no complaintsThe pick up process is always longer and more complex than I would like - even though it was a quiet Saturday morning it still took over half an hour before I finally drove the car away. All car hire places are like this but it was better than the delays I have endured in airports.

Car rental insurance in Chula Vista

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Chula Vista car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Chula Vista.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Chula Vista car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Chula Vista

  • Car rentals in Chula Vista are a convenient way to explore the city and visit all of the major attractions, like Borderfield State Park. Having your own vehicle will give you the flexibility to visit popular nearby cities, whether it be San Diego, Oceanside, or Newport Beach. If you enjoy hiking, you can easily visit Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, an area spanning over 100 miles that is filled with trails and picnic spots and is a 45min drive from Chula Vista.
  • To rent a vehicle from San Diego International Airport, head to the Consolidated Rental Car Center. Outside of each arrival terminal, you will find a shuttle bus stop that will bring you to the center for free. While the center itself is open 24h a day, seven days a week, hours may vary for each individual rental car company. There are several different rental car companies that you can choose from, including Advantage, Enterprise, and Payless.
  • Chula Vista is a large city and can be confusing to navigate if you are not familiar with the area. To help prevent yourself from getting lost, consider adding a GPS system to your rental car reservation. The region is also known for having many pedestrians and cyclists, particularly in neighborhoods along the coast, so make sure to keep your eyes open and drive carefully in order to prevent a collision.
  • San Diego County has heavy amounts of traffic during rush hour due to locals commuting to and from work, particularly on freeways 5, 15, and 805. If you want to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam, try not to drive on these roads between the hours of 8am and 9am and 5pm and 6pm. If you can’t avoid taking these freeways during rush hour, expect delays and try to give yourself extra time to arrive at your destination.
