KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Paso Robles

  • Car rentals in Paso Robles, California make perfect sense as the ideal mode of transportation. Paso Robles could get you to your destinations within the city more than six times as fast as public transportation could. When you choose car rentals in Paso Robles, you could also explore central California by taking Route 101 north for about 90 minutes to Salinas, 2 hours to Monterey, or 3 hours to San Jose. You could drive south 30 minutes to San Luis Obispo, 2 hours to Santa Barbara, and even 4 hours to Los Angeles. Within the area itself, Paso Robles car rentals will allow you to explore the vineyards and wineries that the region is known for or to head to the beach, about 35 minutes away.
  • When you are flying into central California to visit Paso Robles, consider landing at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport. This airport is about 40 minutes southwest of Paso Robles. This airport is small and easy to navigate, and Avis, Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz are among the car rental agencies that you will find. Once you have secured your rental vehicle, simply exit the airport and follow signs to Route 101 west/north, which will take you directly into Paso Robles.
  • Paso Robles is essentially a small town that is growing very quickly, largely due to the wine industry. As a result, some of the infrastructure, including roads, haven't quite caught up to the population growth. Some of the roads show wear and tear, such as potholes, and parts of the town could use more street signs and street lights. Overall, Paso Robles is a small town with a quaint, but very busy, downtown area. As you drive at night further from the town center, be advised that country roads become extremely dark at night, much darker than you might be used to if you are accustomed to driving in more urban areas.
  • When you are driving through Paso Robles, beware of congested traffic on Niblick Road in the morning and the afternoon at the times when the high school is both starting and stopping for the day. The downtown area tends to be crowded, especially in the summer and during holidays, when there is an abundance of shoppers or people attending festivals. Also, drivers in car rentals in Paso Robles should exercise caution on Spring Street when driving by the vast public park. Beware, especially, of children or animals running into the road.

United Dropped me in DC and I had to Rent a Car to Drive myself home to VA Beach. I requested a FULL SIZE Car and got a Little KIA. It didn't even have Electric Seats or a Rear Window Wiper. The Driver who took us from Airport to Avis was Very Rude and insisted on playing his Radio Loud even when I explained I needed to Make an Important Phone Call.
