KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Anaheim

  • As a visitor to Anaheim, you should rent a car to experience this extensive city. The best way to get around Anaheim is in your own vehicle, rather than depending on time-consuming public transportation. With a hire car, you will have the following local attractions at your disposal: Disneyland, Anaheim Garden Walk, California Adventure, and the rest of Orange County.
  • Excited to rent a car on your trip to Anaheim? If you are landing at John Wayne Airport, you will find the on-site hire car desks located in the Arrivals Hall, on the lower level, between Terminals A and B and opposite the statue of John Wayne. If you are using an off-site car hire company then you will be picked up by a shuttle from the Terminal.
  • Driving in Anaheim is an enjoyable experience as it’s blessed with good quality highways and freeways that link to other Californian cities. You will find many HOV and carpool lanes, also known as “diamond lanes,” which mean you must have at least two people in the car when driving in these lanes. Another thing to remember in urban areas of Anaheim is to always slow down when you see school zones or crosswalk signs.
  • On weekdays, Anaheim’s morning rush hour is usually between 7:30 am and 9:00 am, with freeways being the most congested at these times. During the afternoon, rush hour begins at 3:00 pm and lasts until 6:00 pm. You can expect the gridlock to start early on Fridays, and again on Sunday afternoons, when drivers rush to leave the city for the weekend.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Anaheim for $116 or less
  • Book your rental car in Anaheim at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Anaheim are around 67% cheaper than other car types, on average

Driving is a challenge but with the type of car, it becomes easy
Verified travelerNov 2023
Anaheim is very easy to drive in. The rental agency was very close and had a car the next day when we needed it. I'd use Alamo again.
Verified travelerNov 2023
Road was fantastic. Drive after 7pm onwards so it will be less traffic.

Pros:

That the inside of the car was clean and there was a full tank.

Cons:

When you book a car online they have the car you booked not make you take a $2 a day upgrade when it was there fault for not having the car in the first place. Also they need to train there employees to take better care of the customers and not let them stand in the lobby waiting to be checked out while they wait check everyone else out. And they could have washed the car saying it rained the day before is no excuse to give me a dirty on the outside car.

The rudest manager I’ve ever witnessed. Liar employees that called to confirm my reservation the day before and when I got there my car was not there. The manager said I have no control over this when I asked who has control he said I’m the manager but I can’t control anything here and sent me away. He didn’t care and was making fun of another customer who wanted to pay cash with another employee right in front me. That store either needs to close down or the whole team needs to change because it’s ruining enterprise reputation. I would never rent from enterprise again because time is gold and I waisted 2 hours of my time that day driving to OC from LA. Bad business very bad!!!!!

Pros:

The vehicle was ok, not the cleanest but, the drop off and complimentary shuttle at LAX was excellent.

Cons:

Make sure you have a paper copy of your insurance or you will get a very hard time. We had no issues when we rented at the LAX location and no issues dropping off there but, the very rude man the Anaheim Avis/Budget rental office almost didn’t let us rent as he was angry we went through kayak and had no wifi for me to show him my insurance document. He was argumentative and down right rude. I will let people know not to rent from this location again. He racked the bill up as high as he could to make a buck!

The location we went to had terrible customer service. Their website said they close at 4pm. We booked for a car pick up around 12 pm and I got to the location around 12:15pm. Come to find out they stuck a printed piece of paper on their door saying they close at 12pm. We did not receive a curtesy call saying they are closing early. No email from them either. When I got to the location, there were still employees inside that can clearly see me and another couple there who had a 12 pm pick up as well. No associate came to talk to us. No associate even acknowledged us. Later on we see them run out the back door really fast and lock up. I went up to someone to ask what was going on and all one of them said was “we are closed already.” Customer service was just absolutely terrible. Had there been better communication or at least a heads up that they planned on closing early, no one would have been upset but the way they handled everything was terrible and upsetting.

I didn't like anything about renting from Hertz. They didn't have a car when they said they would. Their local agents did what they could, however their reservation service is a joke. I wasted an entire day of my vacation trying to get the car I had ordered and then had to take a smaller vehicle or not have a car. Hertz gave no compensation. What an absolute joke.

Cons:

Hertz should change their name to Hurts! What a joke of a company to rent from! I have no idea how they have the reputation they have as a quality rental company!

Pros:

I showed up to the designated location to pick up my reserved rental car and found the branch closed. I had confirmed my reservation the day before. Other customers were showing up as well to drop off their vehicles but the building was locked. When calling Alamo's main customer support line, I was placed on hold for more than 30 minutes. The representative that helped us could not provide us with an answer as to why the location was closed. They did not offer any solutions other than to drive to a different location which would take us an additional 45 minutes to arrive.

Cons:

Customer service on all levels. There are no guarantees with this company even when you have a confirmation number. I highly recommend using an alternative car rental company.

The staff at this location was excellent and went out of there way to try to find the perfect vehicle for me ... and the vehicle (Lincoln Navigator) was very nice.

Cons:

I had wanted a 4wd for our family ski trip to Colorado, but they could not promise that the vehicle provided on my pick-up day would be a 4wd (and it wasn't). That just doesn't seem right. They were able to find a very nice large luxury vehicle (Navigator) for me that they brought in from another location that morning ... so I had to wait a bit for it (but no big deal). Fortunately, the lack of 4wd did not become an issue on our trip.
