  •   We just completed a very positive experience with Emil and this company. We rented a vehicle, which provided reasonable travel throughout our one month stay in San Diego. Unfortunately, I did not pay enough attention to the 28 day requirement and returned the car late. That was my error and Diane just charged me an additional fee. These cars are older, but seem to be very reliable. I plan to rent another vehicle when I come to visit this area again next year. The cost of renting from Emil is amazingly cheaper than renting from a larger commercial car rental agency for a long period of time.

      I recently rented a Hyundai Tiburon for a period of 3 months, as I just moved back to San Diego for the summer, and decided to rent rather than buy a car.  My experience has been exceptional.  Emil provided concierge-type service that was friendly, professional, and personal.  The car ran well, and in fact, when I had an issue with the windshield wiper, he had it immediately replaced and had the car washed for me as well, free of charge. I really appreciated how quick he was to respond and the attention he gave it. I'm used to renting from bigger car companies and paying a whole lot more.  This is my first time working with a long-term provider, and I will definitely use this company again for my car rental needs.

  •   Emil and Diana are great! Emil has kept touch and gives great advice. They have the best deals in the state. Their deals are better than any service out there. Even better than those places that has cheap in their name. Their cars are pretty good and they ensure to keep steady communication with their customers. I'm glad that I ran across this company because they are a great business and actually care about their customers and the community. They truly have great prices and great cars. The offer regular vehicles and premium which are around 2018 Base models.

    They get a great amount of business because of their fair deals. I highly recommend that you book a reservation if you are in need of a vehicle because you can also rent monthly. They will be sure to help you. Check them out!

      I have had the opportunity to rent a couple of times from San Diego Car Rentals. The best place for long term rentals. The cars are older but well maintained, the pricing is competitive. Emil  and staff are great, professional and very customer service orientated. Rentals are fast, easy and flexible, something the National companies do not offer. I highly recommend them!

      Simply outstanding product and service. We were able to rent a great vehicle on short notice for 8 weeks for an intern who came in from New York. Price was outstanding, owner made pick up and drop off super simple. I would recommend this car rental service to everyone in San Diego that needs a reliable vehicle for an extended period of time....wow!!!!

      Fantastic experience renting from Emil and Diane at San Diego Car Rentals. I've recommended this place to all of my friends visiting the area.

    Over the summer, I needed a 1.5 month car rental. Emil's rates are extremely reasonable, and the cars he provides are in great shape.

    Emil was available to help us with any questions or concerns-- he would respond so quickly and always made sure everything with the rental was great. Besides that, Emil and Diane were always kind and friendly, making every step simple and easy. I will definitely be renting from them next time.

  •   Wow, best car rental experience I've ever had! Everything was so fast, no lines at checkin or checkout, no upselling. Emil runs this business so well and everything goes very smoothly.
    I always like the cars I rent from San Diego Car Rentals better than my own cars.

    I am a return customer, one can save a small fortune renting a used car. I consider Emil a friend after the professional, courteous way he runs his business. This business is the only way I am able to come to San Diego for extended periods.
    Highly reccomend them.
