Good Peeps in Valencia, CAThe guys who checked me in and out were very nice. I got a two-grade car upgrade, AFTER making my initial reservation. So I canceled the first reservation. Got a 2018 Toyota Camry LE for $219 a week. Total with insurance, etc was only $359. Fun car to drive with great gas mileage. Drove to San Diego and Borrego Springs and spent a total of only $70 in gas. Maybe I’ll buy one.What’s not to like?

California VacationCustomer service was very impressive. My husband and I found the staff to be very friendly, professional and helpful. We had a price discrepancy when dropping off the car, which was easily remedied with minor stress. The car was great, pick up and drop off were quick and easy. Would highly recommend.

Clint at Hertz Bouquet Canyon was super helpful with me changing my return dates after I had extended ded them. Priceless
2.0 MediocreNov 13 2021
The stated pick up time for the car was 5:00 p.m. I arrived at 5:02 p.m. and the place was dark. On the website it says it's open until 6:00 p.m. but they had a paper sign on the door saying the hours were to 5:00 p.m. Why would they allow me to set a pick up time after hours? Ridiculous! So I ended up having to go around the corner and rent a car from Enterprise. Should have done that in the first place.

I loved that the staff was quick, and didn’t try to sell me additional add-ons or insurance. Easiest prepay experience ever. Thankyou!

Only one person was working at the desk, so I had to wait about 10 minutes to be helped. The car was not very clean inside.
9.6 ExcellentNov 22 2017
Nice car, nicer staff at HertzThe car was clean and in good condition. Staff assisted us in checking out the car for overall condition. Explained everything we needed to know.Took our lives in our over hands trying to get in and out of the Hertz parking lot, which they share with multiple businesses. The lot is located on a very busy street and not much around to slow down traffic so one can easily get in and out.
2.0 MediocreOct 1 2017
Not so goodWas not told there would be a $200 hold on my account. To rent the car. If I pre pay the car that should be it. Not happy at all and will not recommend Hertz.

We loved the vehicle that we had!!They told us that there were no vans available likely reserved. When we told them an SUV would not work for us as we had a lot of stuff we needed to bring on our trip then all of the sudden we had an option of two vans. That was confusing to me. I am really thankful we got the van.

Poor!I had to wait more than four hours to receive a smaller car than what I booked. The agent was nice to offer an upgrade (after 3 hours of waiting) but the car was in a bad condition (tires were bad). So I had to accept a lower grade vehicle. Pick up and drop off process is very slow.

Poor customer serviceThe agent was preoccupied with tv. He didnt acknowledge me either. Drop off was easy. I asked for a ride and was told I couldnt get one. Instead I had to grab a ride share service. I never had that issue with other rental car places.

Two Thumbs UpThe process was fast and efficient, process took less than 10 minutes. Car was clean and topped off. The Avis representative was professional and respectful.I would like to have done my vehicle inspection with the representative. There was an existing scuff mark and the windshield had a tiny tiny crack. Both the scuff and the crack were annotated I just feel the Avis Rep should have told me prior to walking outside and inspecting my vehicle.

TERRIBLE!!!!WE could not find the drop off location in Valencia. We called for 45 minutes trying to get a hold of someone in THAT location to better help us. They did not answer the phone so it went to the National number. They could not assist either. We desperately needed to drop off the car to get to my mother in law in the hospital who had just had a stroke. We finally found the office and saw the lone employee on his personal cell phone while the office phone kept ringing. Completely unacceptable. I will be a filing a complaint with Avis directly as well.

  • If you have been on vacation before, then you may understand the frustration that comes with waiting for public transport or standing in line waiting for a taxi. You could be late for your business meeting or miss out on a few items on your itinerary because you have to keep up with a certain schedule. But what if you can move at your own pace, time, and flexibility? This is achievable by renting a car from one of the top car rentals in Santa Clarita. You’ll have the ability to get to places quicker, have the chance to tick all the boxes on your Santa Clarita bucket list, experience areas you might not be able to through public transportation, and save money in the process. With a rental car, you can drive as far as 57 miles away to Disneyland Park in about an hour or drop in at the Sunken City Trail about 55 miles away.
  • Once you book your rental car through KAYAK, you'll find it waiting for you at the Los Angeles International Airport if you prefer to drive yourself to the city. If not, you can have the Santa Clarita car rental agency of your choice deliver it to your preferred convenient location. To find the rental car counter at the airport, follow the signs that’ll take you to baggage claim, then proceed outside to find rental car shuttles waiting to take you to the car lot. You'll ride the shuttle from the rental company of your choice, which could be Enterprise, Budget, Avis, or Hertz. When you're done with your trip, you find the Rental Car Return facility on Airport Blvd, and there'll be shuttles available to take you to the terminal to catch your flight.
  • When driving on Santa Clarita roads, it's a good idea to be wary of pedestrians and cycling of the road. Wait for pedestrians to cross on crosswalks and avoid using cellphones while driving at all times.
  • Santa Clarita has busy intersections as it's a commuting community. The Newhall Ranch and Bouquet Canyon Road intersection stands to be one of the busiest in the city. This intersection receives heavy foot traffic as well due to the shopping centers around, so be watchful of pedestrians. The Soledad Canyon Road and Bouquet Canyon Road intersection is in second place, and the Soledad Canyon Road and Whites Canyon Road intersection in third. The morning commute rush hour spans from 5am to 10am, after which it gets back to normal and peaks again in the evening from 5pm to 8pm. Winter roads in Santa Clarita can also be quite dangerous, and if the city gets snow, you may encounter backed-up traffic or full closure, especially on Interstate 5.
