10.0 ExcellentMar 4 2021
Pros: At the Stockton location i went to pick up NO car sent me away REAL BAD and I had a reservation auto mall. Down town location at least they make some calls to help customer I finely got my car at the Lodi location I LOVE THERE SERVICE
9.6 ExcellentFeb 17 2017
Pros: Good fast serviceCons: Price per day a little higher than I'd like
3.2 MediocreDec 26 2016
avoid this place very poor customer serviceCons: everything was not explained clearly, contract says one thing and we were informed differently very confusing but we ended up paying for their mistake. Very unprofessional, and also we made a reservation for a full size car they gave us a mid-size sedan Chevy cruze. I did rent cars from them in the past but this is the last time. I will not recommend this place to anyone else. Bad experience
7.6 GoodDec 17 2016
Cons: $42 1 day
2.0 MediocreDec 8 2016
Unable to rent carPros: NothingCons: I was told by Enterprise that I was unable to rent a car, because I am not a resident of Stockton and was attempting to pay with a debit card.
6.0 GoodAug 22 2016
Pros: Nice car -Cons: Service folks at the airport & office were not as pleasant as they could have been. Drop off direction were not as described/ therefore key were locked in car to protect it from being stilen
9.2 ExcellentAug 19 2016
Pros: Nice to pick up in Stockton and drop off in sf.Cons: What's up with receiving the car with half a tank?
4.0 OkayAug 5 2016
Interesting experienceCons: Car was dirty, the ceiling disgusting. Food or something rubbed all over it. Car parts left in the truck. Car wasn't cleaned well before being given to us. Found a cell phone under the seat. Car only had a forth of a tank has. We scheduled to pick up at noon, got there at 1330 hours and had to wait 25 minutes for the dirty car. I even asked the representative of the car had been cleaned. Later we found the car parts in the truck. The car had a toe that kept reading low, had to stop in Santa Maria store, they sent us to shop to get the tire replaced. Took 45 minutes to compete. Not sure if I'll be renting from Enterprises again. I've rented in the past and didn't have these issues. And is not like anything is going to happen from this review.

4.0 OkayDec 30 2020
Cons: THE CAR THAT I WANTED AND PAID FOR ON LINE, WAS NOT AVAILABLE AT HERTZ, EVEN THOUGH THE WEB SITE CONFIRMED THAT IT WAS. GOT A FLAT TIRE ON THE WAS BACK HOME FROM ARKANSAS. THE TOOL THAT YOU USE TO REMOVE THE LUG NUTS WAS STRIPPED OUT, AND ONLY SPUN AROUND THE LUG NUT. HAD TO USE A TOW SERVICE, AND BUY A NEW TIRE. THAT COST ME OVER TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. ONE OTHER THING...THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS WERE WORN TO THE POINT THAT MADE SEEING WORSE THAN IF I HAD NOT USED THEM. IN CLOSING, HERTZ IS VERY LACKING WITH THEIR BASIC MAINTENANCE INSPECTIONS. SHOULD I EVER HAVE ANOTHER NEED FOR A CAR RENTAL, I WILL USE ENTERPRISE.
2.0 MediocreOct 15 2020
Pros: Had a bad experience.Cons: I prepaid for a full size vehicle for a week. When I got there they said they were out of full sized vehicle and only had a smaller compact size available. I had no choice but to take it since my family was leaving out of town. I was charged for a full sized vehicle and they said they could not refund the difference since I paid in advance. Never going there again!
6.8 GoodAug 10 2019
Cons: Would have been nice to know I had to put down a $200 security deposit! I had no idea it would be that much...the car itself was only $92 for two days!
10.0 ExcellentNov 30 2018

Top tips for renting a car in Stockton

  • Public transportation in a new city can be confusing. Car rentals in Stockton will leave you with less time to figure things out and more time to explore what the city has to offer. Being in the heart of California, Stockton places you in a great location to reach popular destinations within short drives. Once you get a car from Stockton car rentals, you can explore places like San Francisco, which is 82 miles away, Sacramento, 49 miles away, or Yosemite, which is 94 miles away. You’ll eliminate the need to transfer buses to get there and cut travel time by a long shot. 
  • The Stockton Metropolitan Airport is the closest domestic airport, though it doesn’t provide car rental services. Still, you can rent a car of your choice through KAYAK and have the company pick you up at the airport. If you opt for Sacramento International Airport, you’ll find a free shuttle at the ground level ready to take you to the rental car facility within the airport. From there, you can get an on-airport rental car from companies such as Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz. If you opt for off-site car rentals in Stockton, your car rental company of choice can pick you up at the airport car rental facility. 
  • Speeding in local neighborhood streets is a common road offense, so you will want to avoid getting a ticket for it. In California, cyclists are allowed on all highways except specified freeways, so drive carefully to avoid getting into an accident with a cyclist.
  • Traffic congestion in Stockton is not normally something you should be worried about, but the morning commute can be a bit congested. The morning rush hour spans from 6am to 8:30am, so you might want to avoid driving at this time unless it’s necessary. California blizzards can be quite unforgiving, so if you plan to rent a car in Stockton during the winter months, which run from October through March, you should be ready for slick roads, flooding, ice, and high winds. Flash floods can especially be quite hazardous as they strike within minutes.

  • Stockton roads are ideal for most types of vehicles, but consider the season and your capacity needs. During the summer months, you could rent a compact car that will allow you to maneuver into traffic or enjoy the open road while traveling to outer regions. If you’re traveling during the winter months, it’s prudent to get a 4-wheel drive with good traction to avoid getting into an accident. 

  • The maximum speed limit in Stockton is 55mph on highways with two lanes and 65mph on highways with more than two lanes. When you venture into business and residential areas in your rental car, remember that the speed limit is 25mph. The same goes for school zones, and the limit goes down to 15mph on intersections, alleys, and railway crossings. 

  • Gas prices in Stockton average at about $3.29 per gallon. If you want to save on your gas expenses, Alpha Fast Gas, located at E Waterloo Rd, offers relatively lower prices that average at $3.09. ARCO gas stations also have significantly lower prices at around $3.15. You’ll find a majority of gas stations within and around the city, so you don’t have to worry about being caught off guard unless you plan to venture further from the city to remote areas.

  • Finding parking spots in Stockton is not difficult, as there are parking meters throughout the city that charge from 30min to 10h, depending on location. When parking on a public road, be sure to pull as far away as you can and ensure it’s on the right side of the road unless it’s a one-way street.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
