KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tulare

  • Tulare has limited public transportation options. Having car rentals in Tulare gives you the convenience of reaching specific destinations, like the Tulare County Museum, the International Agri-Center, or the Tulare Outlet Center. Renting a car saves you time by eliminating the need to wait for public transportation or search for taxis or rideshare services. If you have a significant amount of luggage or need to transport equipment or supplies during your trip, having a rental car offers the convenience of ample storage space. You won't have to worry about carrying your belongings around or dealing with luggage restrictions on other modes of transportation.
  • For those looking to pick up Tulare car rentals at an airport location in Tulare, CA, the Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) is the most convenient option in the area. The airport features an in-terminal Car Rental Center located directly across from the baggage claim area, offering services from around nine car rental companies. When it comes to returning the rental car, customers can easily drop off their vehicles at the adjacent car rental lot.
  • Tulare has pedestrians and cyclists sharing the roads. Stay vigilant, yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and leave ample space when passing cyclists in car rentals in Tulare. Tulare experiences hot summers, so ensure your rental car's air conditioning is functioning properly. Additionally, be cautious during rainy conditions and adjust your driving accordingly. In the winter, dense fog can also be present throughout the entire central valley, so take extra care driving in these conditions.
  • Weekdays between approximately 7 am and 9 am can be busy on the roads as people commute to work or school. This will also be true on weekdays between approximately 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm.

Hertz (in Hanford) canceled my auto reservation an hour before I was supposed to pick up my car. Scrambling, I called around to other local agencies. Nobody had a vehicle. I reserved one on Kayak, hoping that when I arrived in Visalia, there would be a car. There was! I was to pick it up, drive to Los Angeles, and drop the car at Burbank Airport. Avis (and Kayak) saved the day!

I would definitely never use Budget again and especially this location. The workers seemed like they legitimately hated their jobs and I was an inconvenience for being there. They failed to mentioned the extra charges that would be hitting my account, and when I got to my destination I looked at my account and saw nearly $300 more than what I anticipated. Making me go back to the location because there is no chance that the workers would answer the phone. The only thing that give this company any light is that the car that I had was actually clean and decent. It did have an odd smell to it though. Overall experience, 2 stars.
