Top tips for renting a car from Dollar in San Diego

  • When booking a car for Dollar car rentals in San Diego, like with any city, the conditions of the area must be taken into account. As a major metropolitan city in southern California, the weather is warmer year round with some colder days during the winter. You’re highly unlikely to encounter any issues like snow, or even rain. While traffic can be hectic on the freeway at times, especially during rush hour, local street traffic is much less congested than in many other major metropolitan areas.
  • Dollar car rentals in San Diego offers a selection of vehicles to choose from. Unlike many car rental companies, you have the ability to choose the make and model of your own selection. If you’re traveling with a large group, an SUV or minivan can make a lot of sense. A sedan fits the terrain just as well, though, and can be a huge money saver in terms of gas. Minivans include the Dodge Grand Caravan, full-sized 4-doors include the Chevrolet Malibu, and Intermediate 4-doors include the Mazda.
  • Dollar car rentals in San Diego are a thrifty choice for financially conscientious consumers. A subsidiary of Hertz, Dollar Car Rentals typically caters to those traveling for leisure on a budget. Renting from Dollar Rent A Car isn’t going to break the bank. Booking through KAYAK can help sweeten the deal even more.
  • Dollar car rentals in San Diego understand that travel plans can change suddenly and unexpectedly. For this reason, they offer several reservation options that feature a free cancellation policy. When you book your San Diego Dollar car through KAYAK, you can choose a deal where you will not be charged unless you arrive to collect your rental car.
