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

  •   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...

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'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.

  •   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 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.

      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.

  •   I went with Emil and San Diego Car Rentals solely based on one of the earlier reviews. . .and I wound holding onto the car much much longer than I had originally planned on.  Admittedly, it wasn't a Lamborghini. . but you can not beat the price and customer service and at the end of the day, isn't that what you're looking for a rental?? . . .something that's very well priced and gets you from A to B..  Thanks you guys.  Great Job

      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.

  •   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 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!

      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!
