KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Fontana

  • If the details of your trip to Fontana, California, are uncertain, it might be best to book with Fontana car rentals which offer a free cancellation policy. Hertz offers this benefit and has branches in multiple locations throughout the city for your convenience, such as on Foothill Boulevard and Sierra Avenue. The free cancellation policy typically means that if you do not show up to pick up your car rental, then you will not pay for it. These policies often cost a little extra at the time of making the reservation, though, so be sure to weigh your options properly.
  • If you are looking to pick up your cheap car rental in Fontana, close to the city center, you should consider renting a car from Enterprise. This rental car company has a branch less than 0.5 miles from the downtown area, conveniently located on Sierra Avenue. If you take the Metrolink into the city center, the Enterprise car rental company branch is a short 7-minute walk from the Metrolink station. Once you pick up your rental, you will be able to drive around the city center and surrounding areas with ease.
  • Many people traveling to Fontana, California, do so in order to explore the nearby natural attractions. Among the closest options are the San Bernardino National Forest, Angeles National Forest, and Mount San Jacinto State Park. All of these are popular tourist destinations, are especially attractive for nature lovers and avid hikers, and renting a car in Fontana makes accessing these places that much easier. San Bernardino is about 30 miles away, Angeles National Forest is about a 20-mile drive, and Mount San Jacinto is about 60 miles from Fontana, California, by car.
  • Renting a car in Fontana is better than traveling using public transport. With a bus shuttle or train, you have to wait for the scheduled departure/interchange time, and the services are delayed or unreliable. Moreover, the lack of flexibly public transportation won’t allow you to explore attractions, such as Etiwanda Falls Trailhead, that are a few miles away from the city. With car rentals in Fontana, you can experience comfort and save money, especially when traveling in a bigger group.
  • Travelers can find rental cars at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), located about 56.6 miles away. It is the largest airport serving Fontana city. There are over ten Fontana car rentals at the flight hub. They include Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sunrise, Hertz, Alamo, State Van Rental, National, Europcar, Thrifty, Dollar, Silvercar, and Budget.
  • Fontana is a big city with busy roads, which have many intersections, and maneuvering across the city can be challenging, especially if it’s your first time in the city. To overcome this challenge, make sure you study the routes you will use before leaving, especially if your rental car doesn’t have a navigation system. When entering densely populated residential areas, drive slowly and pay keen attention to pedestrians who might cross the road unexpectedly.
  • Before renting a car in Fontana, it is important to understand that it is a regional hub for the trucking sector. Like other cities, traffic gets congested during the rush hours, with many heavy commercial vehicles plying through the I-10 and I-15 Freeways during mornings and evenings. It’s recommended to maintain alert on the road and a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead during these times. The city streets and paths may also have heavy traffic, which calls for patience and extra care.

Loved the helpful staff. They got me what I needed with the least pain possible and were professional and kind through it all. One of the better business experiences I've had in a long time.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and helpful. Pick up time took awhile and they did not have the vehicle I booked, but was able to work with me and gave me a good deal with something similar or yet better. Drop off was easy and quick.

Cons:

The vehicle wasn’t thoroughly cleaned (saw few stains on leather seats, dirty foot prints on back seats, and the drivers seat belt had a strong perfume smell. So I had to clean and sanitize myself esp during this pandemic I wanted to make sure everything was wiped down good before my road trip. It seemed like the car was just used before pickup so it looked like they did a quick wipe down of the car before I took it. In the end, I’d say the cleaning part could have been better.

Pros:

I wasn’t charged, luckily, when they did not provide the service. This was helpful because I was actually worried they would still try to charge me but the customer service person was nice and helpful.

Cons:

I was not informed that at ONT you do not go to the “Rental Car” area for ACE. You have to call a number to get picked up. It took me 30 min to get to the rental car area, wasted time. And after finding out I could not get through to customer service at all—was only re-routed through automated voice prompts. Finally I had to give up and rent a different car. Seems like an email after booking would have cleared up 100% of this. Again, I am thankful they were very pleasant on the phone the next day and did not charge me.

Quite a bit. My brother experienced multiple mechanical problems including a transmission going out and broken headlights. They told us to drop it off at another location because our pickup location was closing soon. The man at that location tried charging an extra $84 for a "refuling" charge even though we returned the car on full. He was unable to explain why it was on there and stated "I don't know return it in Colton tomorrow." He refused to call anyone to see why the charge was on there and was very rude. I am just amazed at all of the problems we experienced.
