KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in El Monte

  • Renting a car from a car rental in El Monte is prudent if you want to actively tour this city. This is because, with a rental, you’ll be able to move from one attraction to another directly without having to experience the time-consuming stopovers and transfers that characterize bus travel in this city. Some of the top sights in and on the outskirts of El Monte that are worth driving to include the San Gabriel Valley, Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, El Monte Historical Museum, Peck Road Water Conservation Park, and Zamora Park.
  • Long Beach Airport (LGB) is the nearest major airport to El Monte. If you’d like to rent a car at this airport, you’ll be able to do so without hassle, as it features counters for El Monte car rentals such as Enterprise and Hertz. The counters for these rentals are located at the Airport Ground Transportation Center. You will simply walk to this facility, given that it is situated directly across the airport’s terminal.
  • If you rent a car from one of the car rentals in El Monte, you need not worry about having a difficult driving experience. This is because El Monte boasts wide roads with proper road signs and paths for cyclists and pedestrians. However, when driving in this city, you should drive at a low speed, constantly check your surroundings, cut distractions, maintain a safe speed between you and the car ahead, and avoid changing lanes abruptly. Adopting the noted driving techniques is essential, as not all El Monte cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists adhere to the city’s traffic rules.
  • Many of the residents in El Monte rely on their cars to move around. Hence, El Monte tends to experience slight traffic congestion. In the morning, the congestion is usually prevalent from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, while in the evening, it usually occurs from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. When renting a car, you should request a GPS navigation system to be installed in your rental.

Pros:

The staff, both when I picked up and when I returned the car, were professional and courteous. Especially important during these pandemic times, the crew at the Enterprise made me feel comfortable. I will definitely come here again when I need to rent a car.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The branch was closed due to covid. I had booked weeks ago and still to this day, kayak, enterprise and pricelines websites all say this branch is open. I ubered to this branch, it was closed and proceline said all they could do for me was cancel my reservatuon which meant i was still left without a rental car. I had to quickly uber to a further enterprise to get a car costing me a couple of hours and $30 in u planned ubers.

Cons:

The car was filthy. I wiped everything down and was told they santize it before we took the car. The car also had cigarette burns on the seat and stains on the seat. I was extremely concerned about the dirtiness of the car. I hope I don’t get covid 19

Pros:

It was an ok car

Cons:

I returned the car less than an hour late, but it's 5 minutes before closing. Did I really deny them a full day's worth of renting out the car? No, but they took a day's worth of money. Real fuckin' nice

We liked the service and the car chosen. We liked the price and that we were able to use our AAA member discount. The downside was that the car was not available at the time we requested and this meant the car was not properly service nor washed and not sure if sanitized. We left a mat that had food stains on there. Right after we picked it up, we took it to get cleaned. This was an added expense, yet we could not drive it in dirty.

False advertising. Not only is it NOT unlimited mileage, you can’t take the car out of CALIFORNIA! None of which is stated in the info to book. They’ve know. The discrepancy for over a YEAR. They should not be listed at ALL.

I had to cancel it because they told me that they DO NOT offer unlimited miles, even though they DO advertise it, and it was stated on my contract. Very poor service
