What should I consider with the rental car in San Francisco?

⌃
  • If you are on the road with a rental car in the USA, you should always adhere to the specified speed limits. These are 35 miles/h in built-up areas, 25 miles/h near schools and 55-70 miles/h on highways.
  • Be sure to observe the appropriate signs, because speeding and other traffic violations are punished very severely.
  • On highways, overtaking is usually allowed from both sides.
  • Driving over the Golden Gate Bridge is free of charge when going out of town. If you are driving inbound, there is a toll of 8 USD per vehicle.
  • Furthermore, no open alcoholic beverage may be carried inside the vehicle.
  • You may not pass a stopped school bus with flashing lights.
  • We also recommend that you carry an international driver's license. This can be obtained from the Transportation Office of your home town.

What is the minimum age to rent a car at San Francisco Airport?

⌃

With many rental car providers, you can already book a rental car at the age of 21. Simply enter the age in the search mask and look forward to an exciting trip with your friends through San Francisco. For drivers under 25 years, there is usually a so-called "young driver fee", which is already included in the displayed rental price. You do not have to pay any additional fees for this on site. You will find more information in the rental conditions.

Can I pick up the rental car at San Francisco Airport and return it at another location?

⌃
San Diego

Return your rental car in San Diego

You can also return the rental car to a car rental agency at another location or in another state of the USA, such as Arizona or Oregon. To do this, simply change the return location in the search mask. Additional fees apply for the so-called one-way rental.

Thanks to the one-way rental, you can go on an exciting road trip with friends or family in the USA without having to return to the place of departure. In any case, clarify your wishes with the car rental company on site.

Additional driver

If you want to take turns driving the rental car on a longer trip, you can also specify an additional driver. In some offers, an additional driver is already included in the rental price.

What should be considered when returning the rental car?

⌃

Plan enough buffer time for the return of the rental car. Depending on the selected tank regulation, you must fill up the rental car accordingly. In principle, we always recommend the fair tank regulation full / full. With this you return the rented car with the same fuel level as you picked it up. To do this, simply go to the nearest gas station at the San Francisco airport. A Shell gas station is located only 4 minutes drive from the San Francisco airport. When you return the rental car, the car rental company will check the condition and fuel level. If everything is in accordance with the time of the rental, the retained deposit will be released to you.

Can I cancel a rental car free of charge? 

⌃

You can cancel any booking free of charge up to 24 hours before the start of the rental period. So if your travel plans change at short notice, you are on the safe side. Please note the opening hours of our service team.
