Top tips for hiring a car at Fresno Yosemite Airport

  • Are you looking for comfort and flexibility when exploring Fresno’s attractions? Consider getting a car rental at Fresno Airterminal Airport (FAT). The airport features various car rental agencies, with counters located conveniently within the terminal building. The car rental offers you quick access to your destination, saving you the delays of public transportation. Moreover, a Fresno International Airport car rental is relatively affordable considering the value you will derive. Getting a car rental also offers you the freedom to choose your preferred ride and schedule.
  • When returning a car rental at Fresno Airterminal Airport, keep an eye on the blue signage leading you to the car rental returns area. Consider filling up your gas tank as a fuel station some miles from the airport to save up a few coins since refueling at the car rental agency will cost you more. Also, plan your drop-off trip to avoid incurring additional charges for late returns. However, if you anticipate a late return, inform your rental provider in advance. You may also consider dropping off your rental car in a different location, but you will incur extra charges. Check for any further damage with the help of the car rental staff to avoid unexpected additional costs.
  • Various payment methods are accepted for rental cars at Fresno Airterminal Airport. However, for guaranteed security, most car rental agencies on-site prefer credit card reservations. Typically, the major credit cards can be used to make payments, including American Express, Visa, and MasterCard. Other payment options are allowed, such as debit cards, but you will undergo additional screening, and additional requirements will apply. Usually, most rental providers at the airport allow debit cards with Visa and MasterCard logos.
  • CA-180 is the main freeway linking Fresno Airterminal Airport to the city center, and it experiences the heaviest traffic during rush hours. The highway is busiest from 7 am to 8.30 am and from 4 pm reaching its peak at 5.30 pm. Therefore, when scheduling your airport rental car pick-up and drop-off trips, consider avoiding the rush hour times to avoid getting stuck in heavy traffic.
  • Book your car hire at Fresno Yosemite Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Therefore, you don’t have to cancel your long road trips since you can share driving at no additional cost. All you have to do is let the rental company know about any extra drivers when picking up the rental car or booking online so that the agency includes them in the rental agreement. However, the additional drivers must meet all the same insurance and license requirements as the renter.

The people working for Alamo were super nice. Checking in was a little long since there was only one person running the counter. But it was late at night so that’s to be expected. Actually getting the car and returning the car was fast and easy. Would definitely rent from them again!

Truck was in good condition and drove well. Moderately clean, although obvious drink spills only partially cleaned up. The hour wait for pick-up was obnoxious since I was 5th in line and there were two people working the counter. Clearly their system sucks and they don’t care. Definitely going with enterprise next time.

Pros:

The vehicle worked perfectly for my family. We paid for a mid-size SUV and got a slight upgrade. The upgrade was comfortable and easy to use. First time using Alamo and it was a pretty seamless experience. Drop-off was fast.

Cons:

There was a line and a wait when we first got to the rental car counter. It seemed like all the counters were understaffed and I waited a good 30 minutes before I got the keys and left.

Everything was great from start to finish on our one-way rental from the Central Valley to Palm Springs. Staff at our pickup and our dropoff locations were friendly and easy to interact with. The car itself (Toyota Corolla Cross) was great, especially when we encountered some light snow on the drive over the mountains.

Visalia ENTERPRISE location. The 12 passenger van reserved over the phone was NOT available upon arrival. Offered a 15 passenger farm-labor like van with no head-rests for a 26h trip to Texas. Finally settled for a 15 seater with no room for luggage and a 20% discount (took me 1.5h). How could a reservation be made with no vehicle in stock? Three other 12 seaters were booked for someone else in 3 days, but I would be left hanging today. Must have been more important or corporate customer...

Then I take a car and half way to my very short destination the car says to change the oil!! It started shaking. I was worried so I rented another while at my vacation spot. Was sad but whatever I guess. Just won’t be using the avis/Payless/budget rentals again..

The vehicle had shakes when the brakes were applied. I was to far away from where I rented the car to return it so I had to put up with it the whole trip.

When we arrived, they had our reservation but no car! The person at the counter was of no help and said that he could neither give us another car nor cancel the reservation. I was told that perhaps they would have a car in 40-50 minutes. He finally called me 2 hours later. In the meantime, I called Kayak, cancelled the reservation, and walked two counters down where Enterprise rented a car for LESS than what the original reservation would have been at Thrift. Thrifty has lost a customer for life. How do you reserve a car and then not have a car? Unbelievable!

I did have to walk back inside the airport to the desk to return it, but other than that, the return process was smooth, quick, and friendly.

Cons:

The reservation and service was great, though the price was a bit steep. It was a last-minute reservation; however, so that is just how it is. I didn't like some of the features of the SUV. The high beams flickered on and off at will while we were navigating curvy mountain roads in the dark. I did NOT enjoy this. The suspension wasn't as smooth, nor the handling as tight as the Jeep Cherokee we rented the following weekend from a different company.

Pros:

Cons:

Pick up was not good. I was told that I couldn't use my company credit card that I used to book the reservation online because my first name on the card was different than my driver's license (it is my nickname on the credit card). This was the first time in 20 years it has ever been a problem and the rep asked me if it was the first time I rented from Thrifty because this is how the system works. I didn't really appreciate that as an answer. She then says when I come back she can switch the credit cards. I asked her why she didn't lead with that at the beginning of the conversation versus quoting me company policy. Another concern was insurance coverage (company versus personal based on the credit card on file). The drop off was a little better. The line was really long and nowhere does it say you have to stay in line to drop off. Luckily I asked because I was in a hurry (and didn't have to wait in line). The issue here was switching the credit cards which would require me to wait in line. The rep said to write my email down and they would send the final receipt later in the day. I did not receive the email as promised. I called two days later and finally received the second part of the bill (first part on my company credit card, second part on my personal credit card). The experience with Thrifty was OK at best. I'll likely choose a different rental car company in the future. Thank you.
