KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Oakland

  • With cheap car rentals in Oakland, you can easily visit Oakland’s major attractions, such as Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park, Morcom Rose Garden, and Garden Zoo. These sites are located a few miles from Oakland. For instance, Oakland Zoo is situated in the Oakland hills, approximately 23.9 miles from the city center, while Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park is located about 10 miles from the city center. Renting a compact will be an excellent solution for getting to such places. The car is affordably priced and offers exceptional mileage. It will also make navigating the busy Oakland streets easier and sliding into the notoriously squeezed parking spaces. However, you can still opt for a smaller car with an economy ride and head to Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge, approximately 30 miles from Oakland.
  • Oakland streets are always full of bikers who love using their bikes to navigate the city. There are also bicycle couriers who maneuver through the city like speeding bullets. Although there are adequate bike lanes on the city streets, it is crucial to utilize your mirrors optimally to ensure the road is free of cyclists. Also, most of these cyclists do not adhere to traffic rules. Therefore, it is imperative to yield a way for them to avoid causing an accident.
  • When visiting Oakland, carry your driver’s license and a credit card. No car rental company will give you their car without these documents. However, taking out the firm’s insurance plan is not compulsory. You may be expected to produce evidence of alternative coverage. If you are below 25 years and planning to book a rental in Oakland, it is essential to confirm with the car rental company. Some have policies that restrict drivers under 25 years to rent their vehicles.
  • Oakland is an eclectic city full of alternative arts and diverse food culture, with hidden gems sprawled across the city. Whether you are planning on attending an Oakland Athletics ballgame or checking out the long list of art museums in town, renting a car will give you the opportunity to make the most of your time here. Your rental car will also let you explore the Californian wilderness in the Anthony Chabot Regional Park or venture across the bay to the bright lights and bustling metropolis of San Francisco.
  • The Oakland International Airport is located only 10 miles south of downtown and has major car rental companies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise. Once you have viewed the best deals with KAYAK and have chosen your preferred company, pick-up at the airport is simple. Shuttle buses leave every 10 minutes from outside Terminal 2 and will take you directly to the airport’s Rental Car Center.
  • Be mindful that the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is a tollway when driving westbound to San Francisco, so, if you are planning on including this in your driving route, be sure to check the conditions of your rental agreement. There is a large number of one-way streets throughout Oakland, so it is best to use a navigational GPS to preplan your drive before taking off.
  • Rush hour traffic can be troublesome during the peak commuter periods as workers travel between the nearby cities of Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose. The morning rush is most evident between 6:30 am and 9 am, while in the evening it is best to avoid driving between 5 pm and 8 pm if possible. The I-80 encompasses the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and continues further north past Berkeley, so it is recommended to redirect away from this major thoroughfare during rush hour.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Oakland for $42 or less
  • Book your rental car in Oakland at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Oakland are around 7% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Luxury rental cars in Oakland are around -6% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Oakland

You need some patience waiting for the shuttle from and to airport
Verified travelerDec 2023
No issues, very easy to get to car rental center
Verified travelerDec 2023
Arrive with ample time and don’t expect to have a car right away.
Verified travelerDec 2023
Be very careful in Oakland with a rental. If you have a rental car, you are a visible target for “bippers”. Do not stop near the airport. Do not leave your luggage in the car at any time. Plan your stops when you have already removed your luggsge. Lock your doors and don’t leave purses, computers, etc. visible even while in the car.
CourtenayJun 2023
No parking of personal vehicles at the car rental site. Oakland can be wild to drive in and there is almost always traffic on the freeways in the Bay Area so even though something is just a handful of miles away, you’re likely to sit in traffic at some point! :) the trade off for coming to a popular location. :)
MajidAug 2023
Make sure to pick a rental company who is professional to have things managed smoothly.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Make sure to prepay for tolls if you are driving to San Francisco.

No problems with renting, just don't stop there.

Car was clean & in good condition. Excellent communication from everyone especially the manager Tess & the lady who checked us out at the gate, they could not have been friendlier or more helpful. One exception of when picking up the young lady did not seem to know we were covered for insurance & presented us with a bill for $99 she said which was for an extra day, we were not taking an extra day which was clearly stated on our rental voucher (which she did not want to see) I questioned the amount to be charged & this was amended immediately. Overall would definitely use this service again.

Rental in Oakland: Choice of cars was rather poor, seems to be related to the Corona Crisis though. No information about upgrades. No GPS available. Staff was very friendly but was apparently not trained to understand international travellers‘ needs and questiones who havn‘t had a lot of experience on the US car rental market. I tried out a competitor before, which worked much better.

Scheduled a pick up for 9 am. We called at 8 am to ensure our car was ready; they said it was. We arrived only to have them let us know that they were sold out and had been sold out since 6 am and we were lied to. We were told that we had to wait two and a half hours if not more. It wasn’t until we waited in a line of 20+ people to speak to the clerk that told us we could leave earlier if we took an E.V. The customer service at hertz was horrible and thrifty was better.

Pros:

Cons:

I reserved the car and was scheduled to pick it up at 8PM. I showed up a little bit late, and I assume this would be no problem, because the Oakland Airport Rental Car Center is open 24 hours a day. When I got to the car rental center, no one was at the Payless desk, and another lady told me that Payless closes at 8PM. So why would I be allowed to reserve a car for pickup at the time that the desk closes? So anyway, I had to change my trip plans because I had no rental car.

Cons:

I called Alamo twice to confirm that my SUV rental would be AWD as this was the sole reason for my rental to drive into snowy weather and both times was told I would have AWD with any SUV rental. However, at OAK airport I was told I am not guaranteed AWD and in additional OAK airport is the only Alamo location in the Bay Area that charges an additional fee for AWD. Eventually the agent did make an effort to help me get what we needed but the experience was unnecessarily disconcerting.

Cons:

When we picked up our car, fortunately before we left the lot, we noticed that we had been given a car with an almost flat tire. Alamo quickly put us in another car, but it wasn't until after we left the lot that we realized we were given a car without a full tank of gas. This location doesn't seem to pay attention to details.

Pros:

Nice car.

Cons:

We were upgraded automatically. We wanted a car that got good mileage and car got 30 miles to a gallon but it used premium. We were in California so it got expensive.

I reserved my car months ago with Avis and I even called that morning to confirm it. By the time I went to pick up my car at 3pm my scheduled pick up time, the front desk told me that there’s no car for me to pick up. They offered us 2 SUVs instead of one 12 seat passenger van. We asked if they can help check if other nearby Avis has the 12 passenger van. She just throw me the customer service line and said they don’t have access to other Avis. Not helpful at all and they don’t even care if they ruin your plan. We understand things happen but at least you call us ahead of time so we have time to find alternative.

The drop-off representative was very helpful and understanding of the issues we faced with our car rental.

Cons:

The car had no windshield wiper fluid and no UBS ports so we couldn't charge our phones and have the benefit of a nav system.

Easy interface on line to find, reserve vehicle. Received confirmation promptly. When picking up vehicle at National, rep was pleasant, helpful and reservation was in the system with no hassles. Dropping off I got 2 thank yous from staff as I was walking inside.

Cons:

When picking up the insurance offered was much higher than when it was offered online. I should have got it then??

I returned the car 5 minutes after 10 rather than just prior to 10 and was charged a full additional day. Will never use National again for that reason.
