Due to holiday weekend, office said the car hadn't been cleaned or gassed. Was given the choice to take as is or wait. Took it as is. Was told since given to me empty, I didn't need to fill the tank and was told a note was made. When checked in, the note didn't transfer, had to talk to Cust Svc.

Cons:

The customer services were very poor. Having a reservation in hand I was ready to go. I showed up and no vehicles were available. Apparently no ono could get a thing done. Kayak sent me to Avis and Avis sent me to Kayak. After some time they wanted me to drive over hour away to pick up a vehicle. Ended up having to use a different company. Never again

KAYAK

Pros:

Even though I was out of their pick up range, they literally went the extra mile and picked me up so I didn't have to leave my car the whole weekend or gather my car up before my trip. Very helpful and professional.

Cons:

I requested an Ford Transit and got a Chevy passenger van which was sandy, had loose seats that I had to secure myself, food and stains on the benches, and lacked safety technology I would have expected in the Ford Transit with back up cameras, etc. Not happy with the vehicle switch.

Top tips for renting a car in Oceanside

  • Come to the beach city of Oceanside in California and visit the expansive 1,954 ft Oceanside Fishing Pier, which spans a large part of the Pacific Ocean. You can park your car here and indulge in fishing or enjoy a good dinner at Ruby's Diner. If that doesn't sound like fun, then a tour of the Oceanside Museum of Art or California Surf Museum would do it. The Oceanside Fishing Pier is about 86 miles from the Los Angeles International Airport. The Oceanside Museum of Art and the California Surf Museum are around 87 miles from the airport. For convenience and flexibility, drive around to these sites in a rental car instead of the overpriced taxis. You can rent a car through KAYAK with various car rentals in Oceanside and run your schedules comfortably.
  • At the Los Angeles International Airport, there are about 10 on-site car rentals where you can rent a car. Ace, Budget, Hertz, Airport Van, NU Car, U-Save, Fox, Thrifty, and Sixt are among the car rentals in Oceanside with offices at the airport. They also provide shuttle or pick-up services mostly at the exit terminal at the airport. Most of these car rental companies have offices near the arrivals terminal at the airport. You can pick up a shuttle to your respective hotel in the city or rent a car with Oceanside car rentals and drive yourself conveniently to your specific destination.
  • As a beach city, Oceanside is popular with local and visiting tourists and surfers.
