KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Stockton

  • If you are traveling in Stockton car rentals with children under the age of 2yrs, you are required to have them secured in a rear-facing car seat in the back seat at all times, except for children who are over 40lbs or over 40inches tall. Children below 8yrs must ride in the back seat of the vehicle in a booster seat unless they are over 4’9” in which case they are allowed to be secured with a safety belt. Ask your car rental company whether they provide car seat rentals or simply obtain one from any of the car rental services in Stockton.
  • When using your cheap car rentals in Stockton, you are likely to use Thornton Road in north Stockton, which is notoriously dangerous for its lack of sidewalks, especially on the stretch between Wagner Heights and Davis Road. The road is heavily used by cyclists and pedestrians, which necessitates careful driving to ensure you do not cause harm to others or yourself. Make sure to adjust your speed while driving to prevent any accidents from happening, as well as being constantly mindful and aware of your surroundings.
  • It is in your best interest to get cheap car rentals in Stockton if you would want to visit as many attractions as possible. With a cheap car rental in Stockton, you will easily get from one location to another avoiding the time constraints imposed by public transportation. The Stockton 99 Speedway is one of the most popular tourist locations in Stockton. Getting from downtown Stockton to the Stockton 99 Speed Way using a rental car will take you approximately 11mins while taking a public bus will add over 20mins to your journey considering the heavy traffic on this route during race weekends.
  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Stockton for $34 or less
  • Book your rental car in Stockton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Stockton are around 68% cheaper than other car types, on average

We booked full size car and given midsize car instead. We went there twice to get changed. But they wouldn’t and won’t give SUV saying, we pay the difference. Whereas, midsize was being offered at $350 for the same period we paid almost 560+ to book full size car and still got midsize.

we had a midsize reservation but the branch didn't have it. I had a foot sugary and have to carry knee scooter and couldn't use the small car. The representative(s) at the Hertz office were so rude. they called 911 but since we didn't do anything wrong; the police officer didn't say anything to us.

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.

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!
