Many San Diego drivers choose to go down the rent to own route as it is often more affordable for them. Since you will be leasing/renting the car for a period of time, you will find that your car has to follow certain conditions. Leasing vs. buying is explained in detail below.
However, there are some major differences between renting a car and/or leasing a car or leasing vs. buying a car. These include:
Lease v. Buy and while leasing might sound like the better option in many ways, renting to own has many benefits. Some of those benefits are immediately recognizable, including:
However, there are some things to consider about renting to own a car in San Diego that you would do well to keep in mind. Some of the most important considerations include:
If you worry that you might be picking up a vehicle that might not be entirely suited to you, though, you can get plenty of support. Given the concerns above and the things to consider, you should find it a bit easier to make intelligent choices and to weigh up the positives and negatives of the situation. If you believe that you can sustain the financial cost as your credit rating does not allow other options, then considering a rent to own option is highly recommended.
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!
Pricing: (Low and Affordable)
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!
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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!
These are the kinds of small businesses that I love to support! I was in San Diego for business. I needed a car for the week. I spoke with Diane at San Diego Car Rentals. She said our cars are about three to five years old and are in excellent condition. I really don’t need a brand new rental car. I saved easily a few hundred dollars compared to the usual car rentals at the airport. My four year old car was in great running condition. It had 55K miles on it and ran beautifully. It was clean inside and out and the body was damage free. I recommend San Diego Car rentals if you want to save some bucks.
PS…remember to bring your lock box code (she will email you the code) to get your rental car keys when you arrive.
No one does it better than Emil, top notch service and reliable cars at an outstanding price…what more could I want…thank you so much Emil!!!
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!!!!
