Cons: I purchased third party insurance through kayak, however upon arriving at the Alamo rental desk in Ontario , I was soon informed by the Alamo employee that the insurance I purchased is likely inferior to Alamo's company (ie 1st party) insurance, which I also purchased. I would like a refund on the third party insurance I purchased, as clearly I was duped online that this was the only option.

They recommended not buying insurance from kayak.
Pros: They suggested buying the $ 9USD insurance from them. I told them I already had insurance. They then told me that "the insurance from Kayak is really hard to make effective", they recommended asking for my money back. I ended up buying also their insurance.

Beware airport car rental locations if you are not
Pros: The staff was okay.
Cons: While I was able to book a car with only a debit card, I was unable to rent it with one. I needed a credit card and/or flight itinerary when I arrived at this specific location. This was not clearly mentioned when I booked it. When ordering the rental online I had the option to buy separate insurance. I did so and upon being rejected from renting a car I had to make sure to call the insurance company and cancel the policy for the car I never saw. To their credit the insurance company quickly resolved the issue and I had money back in my account in a couple days. Don't rent a vehicle from an airport car rental because they will make you jump through extra hurdles for no reason. The staff there was okay, I had no problem with them, just the companies policies. Fix this problem so it is made clear what will be needed when you get there.

Inspect your car before driving; NOT unlimited mil
Pros: Overall price was $60 less than competitors, but this was due to limited mileage. Got 450 "free" miles only, then $0.25 per mile over. Still ended up being less than the cheapest competitor (Alamo as part of their GoAlamo club price).
Cons: First car had a nail in the tire. We happened to notice that the tire pressure was low. Cars do not seem to be maintained well by the company in general. Cars are clean enough, but do not seem new like others. Lot attendants are NOT helpful at all. NO attendant on duty when returning car, and Budget agents apparently do not work after hours, so you have to check in with Avis, their lot & counter partner.

Cons: Well, first, I blundered and signed-up for an off-airport location...$15 Cab fare, one way. And then, of course, they did not have any of the "Economy" Class cars that I reserved. The refused to offer me an upgraded car (said I was 2 hrs late (there is a difference between a reservation and an appointment in my definition)..I would have happily paid for a couple of extra hours. So after arguing with them for a half-hour, I told them just type in the Free upgrade code and get me in a car for the price I agreed upon..they still refused. I ended up paying about $200 more than I signed up for online.THAT PISSES ME OFF! . HOW CAN i NOT FALL FOR THAT SCAM EVER AGAIN?

Simple
Pros: Pick up and drop off was easy. Car was cleaned. I was late by 2 hours and fortunately they still had a car available for me. No fuss of hassle overall.
Cons: The person working kept subtly mentioning that I would be responsible for anything that happens to the car if I did not buy the insurance. Tires, windshield, anything larger than dime size damage, etc. He must have repeated this 4-5 times. Also talked about how if the car is dirty when returned that I would be charged a cleaning fee. I get that they need to remind us about possible costs and stuff, but felt more like pressure tactics.

Cheated
Pros: Ease of pick up and drop off at two different locations
Cons: The woman who attended tricked me into buying a full tank of gas by saying due to the distance and small gas tank I would use it all. I ended up using only half. She never made an effort to disclose that none of the gas will be credited and it is not stated anywhere on their counter. It is stated in the long paper work she gave me after transaction was complete. I noticed at their drop off location, airport Santa Maria, they do have a small sign that states so, but not in their Ontario location. What a gimmick.

Dissatisfied with service
Pros: Redlands drop off was fast and they returned me to my relative's home which was great.
Cons: I thought I was picking up the car from the airport but when I got to the airport office they said I had to pick the car up somewhere else. I had to take the shuttle back to the airport and then get a cab to the car location. When I finally got there, the agent that I was working with was taking calls while completing my rental which delayed my getting out of there. Additionally, the restroom at this location was dirty and the car was dirty too.

Pros: We arrived at John Wayne Airport shuttle stop at 1030 pm and waited for the shuttle to the car rental office until 11:15pm. None came. There was no number to call to speak to a live person. We finally took a cab to our hotel. Fox was a complete disappointment.

lousy inventory, poor service
Pros: Nothing except the advertised price
Cons: The advertised standard-size car was a Camry. They didn't have one. Offfered us a Kia, which my wife, who has a back condition, found uncomfortable. THE ONLY OTHER FULL-SIZE CAR, beside 2 Mustang convertibles, WAS A DODGE CHARGER, 10.6 inches longer than a Camry and thus harder to park. Having no other choice we took it, and were charged an additional $117 for a larger car. Check-in and check-out was chaotic; they did not have enough staff at San Diego, as well as too few cars. I will not do business with Fox again.

First time using them...
Pros: Drop off was very easy.
Cons: The Jeep Patriot we got was VERY under powered, and we were hoping for 4x4 which this Jeep wasn't. But by far, the MOST annoying piece of this experience was the very pushy rep that was trying to push Insurance, gas, and road-side assistance down my throat! With lines like "I guess you don't like saving money" and "I hope you don't regret this", it was not a good first step to my vacation. If there were other car rental places around, I would have walked out (They aren't at the airport).

Quoted Price didn't match
Pros: Using the rented car for pickup and dropoff
Cons: The price quoted was less than what I was asked to pay. It was explained that the price quoted didn't include all the taxes they had to pay. That sounded bogus to me but the price was still very reasonable. They didn't have the car I reserved. I reserved an economy car and got a minivan instead. The car was also not very clean. The cup holders were full of chewed sunflower seed shells. Disgusting.

Cons: We rented from LAX and dropped off at Ontario airport. At both locations it was impossible to find the rental office. There are no instructions online about the locations at all. For the LAX location you have to take an airport shuttle to an off-airport location and then the rental company will come pick you up. For the Ontario airport location, they are located inside a hotel, but there is no mention of this anywhere. Also, the first car they gave us had a warning light on for low tire pressure and when we said that we wanted another car, one that didn't need maintenance, they tried to tell us the that warning light was on because they service their own vehicles. This doesn't make any sense. Service at the LAX location was also very slow. All told with finding the office, getting a replacement car, etc. it took us about 2.5 hours to actually rent the car. This was a total waste of a morning on a very short trip to LA.

This was the absolute worst experience I have EVER
Pros: I liked nothing about this.
Cons: I never leave reviews but this has warranted one. Our flight was delayed in Portland, OR, which meant that we would miss our connection from Sacramento to Ontario, CA. We were told our only option would be to be re-routed to LAX then shuttled over to Ontario. The airline was great. We couldn't get ahold of anyone at the car rental place (Allied) prior to taking off from Portland. In Sacramento, I called up the # Kayak provided and reached Allied. The woman was not at all helpful. I asked if I would be charged a fee if we didn't pick up our car on time, if we would be able to pick up a car the next day, what their number was over there, if she could help us at all since we had to pick up family members who had also flown into Ontario. She said she had no idea what they did at that location and wouldn't call over to get any information. We were SOL and had no idea if we'd be charged. Next morning, we saw a charge for a full day's rental plus taxes and fees for not picking up our car. We called that morning and that is where it got super "fun". My philosophy is to treat all customer service reps with respect since dealing with people on the phone can sometimes be terrible and it is often not their fault if they can't do anything. That is how I operate unless I am in turn not respected, treated with good customer service, or spoken down to. I explained that our travel was out of our hands and that we got extremely poor customer service from the woman the previous night who, if she had given us better direction, we could have called Kayak to cancel the reservation, but she NEVER mentioned that! Because of misinformation from their employee who was also not willing at all to help us, we were charged a fee and we felt that was unfair. They said they would not be able to reverse the charge but were being super vague about it, saying that it's just an automatic charge and they can't do anything about it. We asked to speak to a supervisor. We were told to call back the next day to talk to Lan at the Ontario, CA location. We did that. We spoke to her and she was also being super vague about not being able to reverse anything. She was also being super cryptic in that she wouldn't give us her last name so we could document this. We asked to speak to her supervisor. She said we could call the corporate office but wouldn't give us any names of any one person we should talk with. We called the corporate office and spoke with Shereen (sp?) and she was being completely unhelpful and cryptic. She would also not provide us with any last names. So on Christmas Eve, she was unwilling to reverse a charge that we incurred because our flight was delayed and we got some of the worst customer service we have ever experienced from their representatives. She said no one could help us and said her supervisor was Matt (turns out is the CEO). Then she hung up on us. Deplorable. Pathetic. We told all of our family members about it. No one is renting from them.

Best rental experience ever.
Pros: Quick shuttle service to the rental site (folk inn). Quick (out in less than 5 min from the time we arrived), zero attempt to upsale. Upon returning the car, they had one of their guys simply drive us to the airport in the car, which was so nice because we had 2 kids in car seats and to not have to move them was simply fantastic. The young man that drove us was super personable. This rental experience will probably never be topped.

Room for Improvement
Pros: Car ran well Shuttle to/from airport was easy Checkout was easy
Cons: Very slow check in. Needed more employees at the counter No coordination with insurance purchased online - they could not find my policy number which added to the check out time. Car was obviously a smoker's car that they tried to cover up with deodorizer. Wasn't effective, car was unpleasant. After 5 days, they still have not refunded my deposit. Likely will not use this rental company again.

Thrifty is not Thrifty
Pros: The deal seemed to be great.
Cons: Thrifty wanted $350 as a deposit/hold on top of the rental amount. Most people don't have $350 laying around to use like this. It has to be from a credit card and the people are less than friendly and give no additional options. Before you think it's a killer deal, find out what you will really be charged before renting from them. I will now never use Thrifty, Hertz, or Avis as they are all less than up front about cost.

Van review
Cons: For pickup a vehicle was not ready at the time we arrived. It took approximately 30 minutes to receive the van. With today's technology, it seems reasonable to know that a reservation exists for a specific time and vehicle and to have a vehicle ready to be picked up. When dropping off the vehicle, the attendant didn't take the time to get off of his cell phone to check us out.

Poor service
Cons: Long time to check out In the car sting out. The last check out guy says. I’m sorry but you have a car that is over by 17K Miles for its service. so he had me hours out and return. Then he tells me that they have no cars. So I’m doing the waiting game. Not even an upgrade for the most obvious inconvenience. Finally get in a car and leave. Only miles later a notice shows up in the dash board saying “this car is overdue for service”.... I went straight to Palm Sprinfs airport (from Ontario 1 hr 10 min). No manager on duty that day. A younger person in her twenties 20’s gave me a $25 coupon for another day... seriously.. very cad.

Very accommodating but very limited selection, more costly than expect
Pros: I liked how nice and accommodating the Ontario Dollar staff was. They were really helpful in talking to me and my sister about the compatibility of 2018 Kia Sorrento to the carseat for my niece. The car itself was spacious, had plenty of room for 3 adults and a toddler's supplies, and we were also able to take advantage of the third row. The car drove fairly well, especially after I discovered the Eco mode! I also liked that it came with satellite radio and Bluetooth for handsfree calling.
Cons: There was only one car available in the class I reserved, so I didn't like the lack of choices at the ONT location. They were also sold out in the class above. I wish someone had also told me there was an Eco mode, as I think it could've stretched out the trips to the gas station (had to fill up twice). The final cost was also $135 above what I was originally quoted. That price was the reason I chose this rental.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: The countrer Agent Brian at Ontario Airport overcharged me $130 on a total rental of $45. I found that he charged me for a full tank of gas for $9 per gallon. I filled the car before getting there. Really corrupt and dishonest person. He had the audacity to say that the system automatically charged it. This was my first and last transaction with this crappy company. Your employees are a face to your business. Brian at Ontario airport is putting a corrupt face to your business.

Won't rent from them again!!!
Cons: They had only two reps working and over 50 people waiting in line. It took two hours to get my rental car after getting their and Payless is closed after 10pm so they have it handled by Fox. The reps were rude and there were no cars available. The amount I was charge was not the same as the amount shown on my rental through Kayak and their argument was that it was the taxes. They finally got a manager and although he was able to fix the overcharge but the car they gave me was horrible and not what I had requested. Incredibly disappointed!!!

Cons: They did not tell us that we had to go off site away from all the other rental companies, didn’t have a local number for pick up on the reservation, paperwork was cumbersome, had to drop off outside office hours so had to use the local hotel concierge, they did not seem happy to help me, and no place to park at drop off, so had to leave it in the red, probably why concierge wasn’t happy, drop off shuttle only ran every 30 min, so had to twist their arm to come and pick me up, even though there was nobody else, made me late for my flight.

Top tips for renting a car in Ontario

  • Like most cities in Canada, Ontario is designed for private vehicles. This means visitors to the city will be much better off renting a car than relying on public transportation to get around. This is especially the case if you plan to visit one of the state or national parks neighboring the city, like San Bernardino National Forest, which is just 56 miles away and would be nearly unreachable without a car at your disposal.
  • If you are like most travelers renting a car, the first step of your journey post-flight is to pick up your hire car. For those landing at Ontario International Airport, you can reach the airport’s hire car center by taking one of the 24/7 shuttle buses departing from outside of the main terminal.
  • The hills and mountains around Ontario are some of the natural highlights of any trip to the city, but what happens when you are on a narrow mountain road, you meet another car, and neither of you can pass by each other? In cases like this, as uncommon as they may be, the vehicle that is facing downhill must yield to the uphill facing driver and back up to make room for the other car. The reason for this is that the downhill-facing car has (at least theoretically) greater control and maneuverability.
  • Ontario, similar to much of California, faces a bit of a daily rush hour during the work week. The morning rush hour can be expected to pick up around 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 8:30 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour lasts from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, the rush hour traffic is actually quite mild, so visitors and commuters alike won’t have much to worry about.
  • Book your rental car in Ontario at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

How can I find car rentals near me in Ontario?

Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Ontario?

Truly any size of vehicle is perfectly appropriate for driving in Ontario. The roads are large and wide and the parking is well-sized, so even large trucks and SUVs will have no issues parking. One thing to consider, though, is whether or not you plan on visiting other areas of California after your time in Ontario. If so, a car that is fuel efficient may be worth considering, as petrol is not the cheapest in California.

What's the speed limit in Ontario?

Drivers can expect residential speed limits in Ontario to range from 25 to 35 mph, while outside of the city the speed limit jumps up to 50 mph and even up to 65 mph on rural motorways. On highways and interstates, the speed limit is between 65 and 70 mph.

How are gas prices in Ontario?

Petrol prices in Ontario at $3 per gallon are a bit higher than the national average. However, for California and for much of the West Coast, they are actually fairly standard examples, seeing as San Diego’s average price per gallon is $3.10 and Seattle’s average is $3.

Where are the best places to park in Ontario?

Drivers should have no issues finding immediate streetside parking near the sights in Ontario. Parking is very available and all sizes of vehicles will have no problems finding space to park. There are also a number of parking garages in the more densely packed sections of town.
