Rental Car Boundary Limits

2009 or Older Vehicles

Our goal is to ensure your safety while driving our rental vehicles, so in order to provide you with a properly cared for and well maintained vehicle, we must limit the traveling distance in our older model vehicles. If your rental vehicle is a 2009 model or older your vehicle is only allowed to travel within the boundary lines shown in the map to the right.
Your vehicle does include free roadside assistance but only within the set parameter. If you experience mechanical issues and the vehicle is outside the boundary lines it will be your responsibility to have the vehicle towed to our office.


 

2010 or Newer Vehicles

Vehicles dated 2010 or newer are permitted to travel anywhere within San Diego and Los Angeles County only. Please see the map to the left as it displays the boundary lines for Los Angeles County. If at any time the vehicle exceeds the boundary lines we will be notified and a $175 travel fee will be imposed.


 

Cheap Rental Cars in San Diego

  •   I had a reservation with a major rental company at the San Diego airport. Unfortunately I did not read fine print in the reservation, the major rental company had indicated would not accept debit cards to rent a vehicle. Was informed all major rental companies required major credit cards to rent a vehicle.
    I was totally stuck, lucky an employee of the major company provided the phone number of this "smaller" rental company. The manager was more than willing to use my debit card, staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Will utilize this business next time I am in San Diego area.

      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.

  •   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!

  •   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.

      We made a 1 month commitment to rent a car for our son through Emil.  My son drove the car for 2 days when he had an unfortunate surfing accident and broke several bones in his right leg that required surgery and no driving for up to 12 weeks. Emil was so kind to allow us out of our contract due to the severity of our circumstance.  He kept a nominal fee for the 4 days we had the car and refunded the rest.  He is a man of integrity and I WILL do business again with him as our needs require and highly recommend his company to all in need.  

    ANOTHER great thing is that he will rent to young adults under 21years of age as long as you show proof of insurance where most other car rental facilities do not as I did my research.

  •   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.

      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.

  •   My new favorite place to rent a car long term. Emil was very personable and all their fees are upfront, no games no gimmicks. I will definitely be a repeat customer and will refer others.

      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.

  •   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!
