KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in San Leandro

  • If you’re planning a trip to San Leandro, you need to get a rental car to help you move around the city with ease. Cheap San Leandro car rentals provide you with a different level of flexibility and convenience. You can choose to go anywhere at any time without worrying about bus or train schedules. In addition, you can carry as much luggage as you want, allowing you to visit as many places as you want in one trip. You can even visit neighboring cities such as San Francisco and Oakland and check out some of the attractions there.
  • A good place to get your car rentals in San Leandro would be at Oakland International Airport. This airport hosts almost all big-name rental companies, including Hertz, Enterprise, Budget, Alamo, Avis, and Thrifty, among others. They are all situated in one area at the airport called the car rental center, which is in the North Fields, about 10min from the terminal. To get to this rental center, you can either walk or wait for the shuttle, which comes around in intervals of about ten minutes. If you can, make the reservation online before arriving at the airport so that when you land at the airport, it takes less time to process your request.
  • When driving your car rentals in San Leandro, be wary of pedestrians and cyclists sharing the road. With such narrow streets, congestion can often be a problem, and that leads to incidents on the road. Always ensure you give cyclists enough room and as you approach intersections, always check your surroundings before making a turn or driving straight through, even if the lights say that it is safe to do so.
  • Traffic in San Leandro can sometimes be a nightmare, as is the case with most cities in the Bay Area. Rush hours typically run from 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm. If you can, avoid going into the business district during these hours. Other roads in San Leandro that are notorious for horrible traffic include the I-880 and I-580, with the intersection of the two roads being one of the worst spots. Navigating the streets of San Leandro can also be quite tricky so if you need help, consider getting a GPS installed on your car rentals in San Leandro.

KAYAK

Pros:

Not much

Cons:

Car not ready on my prepaid reservation. Long wait for prep of replacement. Windows very dirty inside, lots of sun glare. They gave my car away to a walk-in saying I was "Late". Ridiculous, I pre-paid, my car should have been waiting for me regardless of when I showed up that day. At minimum they should have called if they thought I was not showing. Drop off, long wait time if you want to be checked in on the spot. understaffed.
