  •   I chose this company for its unbeatable prices on longterm car rentals. The personal service  was, unexpectedly, as good as I've gotten in any commercial transaction. Emil is a saint -- patient in explaining everything, and devoted to being helpful, flexible and dependable. He's the kind you root for in life, not just in business.

  •   This family owned business can solve all of your rental car problems. They will even go out of their way to help you with any of your car needs.

    Emil went out of his way to help me navigate through my car problems and I am genuinely grateful.

    They are extremely professional, kind & helpful. It is super rare to find business' like this these days. You know, the ones that only care about helping you get what you need.  Thank you Emil for helping me get what I needed!

      You won't find a better place to do a long-term car rental! Emil is very professional and treats you like a life-long friend. Whenever I have a question or need assistance, he is quick to respond with helpful solutions. My experience with this company has been nothing shy of a five-star service.

    I once locked my keys in the rental, in the rain, with a dying phone -- Emil handled the situation so quickly and had help sent my way immediately to save the day!

    On top of great customer service, the pricing is so competitive. I feel lucky to have fallen into the hands of a company that actually cares for the customer. Thank you San Diego Car Rentals and to Emil for being so helpful!

  •   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.

      Sooooo glad I found this place!

    They specialize in long term rentals (minimum 7 days) and their prices are great!

    I called and was quoted a price by Diana for their red 2008 Chevy Impala.
    She sent pictures of the car and payment authorization via email. No deposit or credit card is required. My debit card was not charged until I picked up the car.

    When I picked up the car it was after hours, so the key was in a lockbox and the contract was in the car.
    The car's interior and exterior were both clean.
    The windshield fluid light was on as it was low, but thankfully I did not need to use it.
    Even though the car is 10 years old, it is clean and fully loaded with leather seats and a sunroof.
    There is no bluetooth or USB port.
    I had to purchase an iPhone charger for the cigarette lighter.

    The office is located around back of the strip mall.
    Just return your rental as you picked it up- gas, clean & washed.

    They do not provide transportation to/from the airport. Taxi is approximately $35 one way.

    I definitely recommend this place!
    This is your best bet if you require a rental for minimum 7 days.

    I'll be back...

  •   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 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.

  •   The best car rental experience I have ever had. Best price. Nicest guy. I expect car people to just be out for the buck & uncaring about the people. Hurried, pressure to be on schedule.  I guess that has been my past experience. This was an entirely different experience. Great price, caring people. I was late & stressed out. They went the extra mile for me. Stayed late even gave me an extra day when another agency cancelled the truck i needed at the last minute. I'm kind of a small person. Most cars are too big requiring a bunch of uncomfortable cushions. I was given choices as to which car was most comfortable for me to drive.  Invited to sit in, try out & choose the one I wanted  I was given instruction on my chosen car. Time was taken to  to make sure everything was just right.  I actually felt cared about.  I was treated like a family friend. I will certainly return & recommend this business to my friends. The cars aren't fancy, but that is the least of my priorities. This is best way to save money & reduce stress. This is my go- to car rental from now on. Puppy love from Inventing Joy & Furry Folk

      This is an amazing little company and you really get personal service.  We had a minor issue with a car (check engine light came on, probably for no real reason) but she came and drove a new car out to our house and exchanged it on the spot with no hassle for us at all!  Amazing!  We kept the car a few extra days at a reasonable rate and had a very flexible and easy return.  If I need a car like this again I will definitely be back.

  •   These guys are awsome. This is my second time getting a rental from them. Monthly rental rates are affordable, and the office works with you if you need a little time with money for the next month. They are also quick to get you back on the road if you have any problems at all. I rented a car for over 3 months. In that time i needed the battery swapped out once. And then there was a leak another time, and I needed brakes changed another time. They got a tow out to me and gave me a loaner car until they fixed the car. Its great not having to worry about maintenance. All I had to do was call and say what was wrong and they handled it or sent me to the shop for maintenance. Im almost sad that my car is done being repaired because I will miss the customer service. I know i will use them again tho. Thaks guys for being so awsome.!!

      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!!!!

  •   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!
