  •   I've been a renting from San Diego Car Rentals for just over two years. My experience has been nothing but positive. The cars are always dependable, safe and extremely well maintained. It has been a pleasure doing business with Emil, who is very friendly, knowledgeable and always helpful.

      Enterprise is great for business rental cars. I use Enterprise for all business trips. I would like to them open earlier than 04:30 AM. When I have a 06:00 AM departure from an airport that requires a shuttle, I cut my flights really close. Friendly staff, recommend to other folks traveling to San Diego or anyone requiring a rental!

  •   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.

      Had an awesome experience. Hassel free both pick up and return. Emil works with you on your situations. His office was close and i had to drop off the vehicle and he showed up within 5 mins. Great guy, great service, and great price. Will definitely refer friends and family here for long term rentals in the San Diego area. What he advertises is exactly what it is. No hidden agenda or fees.

      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.

  •   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.!!
