Pros:

Great value.

Cons:

Was surprised to find out that the car did not have cruise control, as every other car that I have ever rented has had that feature. Would have been nice for our long trip.

Apr 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Car was filthy, battery in both keyfobs were low, only had 1/4 tank gas which only gets you to a gas station in Orange County California. Wait time was an hour and I was the only customer in office. Don’t do it! However, staff at return were friendly.

Had to travel to multiple location for pickup. Delayed my trip 45 minutes. What purpose did making a reservation serve?

Cons:

The place is a little difficult to find, and very limited parking for people who are picking you up. The person who helped us was friendly but very much in a hurry.

Cons:

This guy is a rip off - Douglas Lauer - He charged me $500 deductible - He charged me for something I didn't do. The damage was already there when I rented the car and Jason told me we don't need to put that in the contract. When I returned the car, Douglas told me that he has to file a claim and Jason ignored his comments at the time of rental. Stay away from these guys. They just want to repair their cars with your money!

Misleading information about the unlimited milage. There was hidden fees for that

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing good to report

Cons:

Customer service was almost the bright spot, but the gentleman who picked me up was griping about how his coworker was late, which I totally understand, but it's not really my business. When she arrived, he reprimanded her within earshot of me, which was a bit uncomfortable. I am out of space

When I booked on the carrental.com it said unlimited mileage but when I received my final bill they changed me $68 for extra miles.

Nov 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

When we dropped off our car, there was a paper sign on the door saying they had 'stepped out' and to leave the keys at the front hotel lobby desk. We relied on them for a shuttle to the airport. and they were no where to be found so we had to quickly uber, pushing our flight. They then later charged us for the entire tank at $5/gallon plus a $15 fee, even after we requested to have the option where they filled it for us, so we returned it empty. Customer service was terrible on the phone, saying the 'agent didnt remember you saying you needed that option' and that was their grounds for the charge. Total scam.

Top tips for renting a car in Irvine

  • From the Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park in the northeast to the coast line in the south, Irvine has a lot to discover -- and why not pick the most convenient and flexible way to do so by choosing a car? Be at Laguna Beach in less than twenty minutes, or pack up the kids and drive to Disney World in Anaheim -- it is only a 20-minute car ride via the I-5 N. Also remember that California is a car-obsessed state and almost everybody owns one, so embrace the West Coast culture and drive along.
  • The closest airport to Irvine is John Wayne Airport in Orange County, which is about 4 miles away and only an 8-minute drive from Irvine’s center. The airport boasts its own rental car center with on-site agencies like Hertz, Alamo, and Enterprise. The center is located between terminal A and B on the arrivals level, close to the statue of the eponymous John Wayne.
  • Driving in Irvine is not much different than driving in many other US cities, but bear in mind that Californian drivers have a reputation to not adhere to passing in the left lane and simply choose a lane of their taste. Also, when changing lanes the blinkers are often not used, so always stay alert and don’t be surprised when someone cuts into your lane without indicating beforehand.
  • With most Californians owning a car, rush hours in Irvine can mean a fair amount of congestion and waiting times. Try to avoid the morning peak times between approximately 7:30 and 9am and 5 and 7pm. On weekends, there can also be heavy traffic, especially from Anaheim, mostly between 4-7pm when people return from family trips.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Irvine for $44 or less
  • Book your rental car in Irvine at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Irvine are around 46% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Irvine are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average
