Top Tips for Hiring an SUV in San Francisco

  • Booking SUV hire in San Francisco is the best way to explore the city and its attractive neighbouring areas with total freedom. Go where you want to, when you want to and stay for as long as you want. There are wonderful day trips when you head just out of the city, which allow you to get the best out of your SUV and soak up the culture. Just 1h 20min from the city centre is Point Reyes, considered one of the most beautiful Bay Area road trips.
  • San Francisco International Airport is the major airport that services the city and is 13 miles from the city centre. Collecting your vehicle from the airport is a convenient choice if you want to pick up and drop off SUV in the same location. Take the AirTrain Blue Line to the car hire centre directly from the airport terminal to reach the car hire companies. The train generally runs 24 hours a day.
  • Travelling around San Francisco by SUV or any car can be challenging for inexperienced drivers, especially if it's your first time visiting. Traffic moves fast and people switching lanes and zig-zagging through traffic is not uncommon. There are lots of one-way streets which are also tricky to navigate if you are not used to them. Buses and bicyclists are common on San Francisco streets and pedestrians share the roads. Heading up and down the enormous hills can be quite daunting, but easier to manoeuvre with the horse power and control offered by SUV hire cars in San Francisco.
  • One of the most important things to consider when driving your San Francisco SUV hire is to pay attention to the road signs. They control the flow of traffic and are different to those in other parts of the world in some cases. Watch out for signs displaying one-way streets, buses only lanes and whether you can or cannot make a left-hand turn at that time of the day. You'll also need to pay attention to the fact that the yellow light in San Francisco means you need to come to a stop, which is different to other parts of the world where it means you need to yield or slow down.
  • 25% of our users found an SUV hire in San Francisco for $71 or less
  • Book your SUV hire in San Francisco at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • January is typically the cheapest month to hire an SUV in San Francisco, with prices around $52 per day. The most expensive month is July, with average prices of $78 per day.

FAQs About Hiring an SUV in San Francisco

  • Where are the best locations in San Francisco to rent an SUV?

Alamo presented a can do attitude from beginning to end. The car was spectacular and we had a ball driving the cobalt blue Mustang Convertible around Palo Alto, up and down Highway 1, 3 days in Carmel and spin down to Big Sur. I had wanted to rent a convertible for years, and finally did it! Thanks Alamo, check in specialist Jenny, and the whole Alamo team.

Cons:

Pros:

the dropoff was quick and easy. Pickup was a 2 hour wait in a line only to find a clerk who didn't know how to handle long-term rentals, and another wait for the manager.

Cons:

more help at the pickup line, or better staffing for expected surges.

Pros:

Yes, staff were very helpful.

Cons:

At first they offered us a smelly old Toyota RAV from Utah, with the windows open. That was a clue - really smelly. And we wanted a SUV for the all-wheel drive; that one was only 2-wheel drive.

I was not given a damage slip or told to look at the damage ahead of time on my rental car. I was told (through an email) that a scratch was there that had not been there before my rental. I drove the car the entire time with the exception of valets at my hotel and did not cause damage. Because I did not get to inspect it and was not given a form to do so, I do not have evidence that something happened under my watch and just have to take their word. I also would have liked them to tell me when I turned the car in, as I did not have a chance to see what they are saying I did. It all feels pretty unfair. This could have been resolved if they had given me a damage form ahead of time.

It was a fairly seamless process. The representative was very helpful. My only criticism is that I never received either via email or print the contract. This is not the fault of the representative. He attempted to print it and that failed. He also attempted to email it twice and never came through. I think Budget needs to make sure they are investing in their equipment. The printer at the airport was fairly old and outdated. But other than that, great experience!

The company we used was Budget which is an affiliate of Avis. I guess the name Budget is exactly what you get. I ordered a Ford Transit van for a two week road trip. Instead, we got an old 15 passenger bench seat van. In this van we found d beer, wine, antifreeze, kids books, food wrappers and crumbs, and several interior tips and broken pieces. I called to request an exchange for safety and while accommodating I had to take time out of my vacation to drive an hour away to exchange the van because they would not do it at the location one mile from me. So, we exchanged the van only to be put into a van that we actually did request but with a broken windshield with broken glass on the dashboard and a gas leak. I called, AGAIN, and asked for an exchange and demanded they bring me the new van and take the broken one. They initially asked me to drive, the broken van, two hours away in order to return it. That was out of the question. In the end, they brought me the third van which lasted the rest of the trip and was exactly what we needed. It should not have taken me three vans to get it right - countless phone calls and time on hold, not to mention awful and rude customer service to rent a van. I’d also like to me til , the rate that I locked in on my original rental would not longer be offered or accepted because I needed an exchange, TWICE, due to unsafe and dangerous vehicles they initially put me in; with each exchange came additional fees and a high price. I will NEVER use budget, Avis, or any of their affiliates again.

Waited for two hours to get the car! Their system is slow, their service is not optimal nor friendly! Just bad experience for a lot of money! Will not use them again.

Pros:

Nothing.

Cons:

The location was closed when I got there. How was I able to make a reservation at 5pm when the place closes at 5pm? On top of that, I got there at 4:50 p.m and the location was closed. I attempted to go to the airport Avis location and swap my reservation there but the rate was 3x more expensive and the reservation non transferable. Ended up not getting a car and had to cancel all my plans for the weeeknd. On top of all of this, Avis is now charging me a no show fee.

The customer service agent was rude and rushed so much, calling the next person to the counter when I was paying and signing in the POS system. He also provided the wrong car information, taking me an extra half to find the car and get back into the line to fix it.

Friendly and polite staff for the car pick-up and drop-off. The experience at the counter could have gone better. There was a mismatch between my priceline voucher (obtained through a kayak search) and what the person at the desk had in the computer. This resulted in several iterations of being proposed higher rental prices and being told I had to pay tax (although the voucher had tax payed on it). No car was available in the category I chose, so I was offered an "upgrade" at an additional cost. This is the first time this happens, as most o the time companies offer it for free, as it's not the client's fault for the company running out of reserved cars in a category. I ended up choosing a lower class car, luckily for free (the only thing that was for free in the negotiations at the cash desk). This is an unacceptable experience at the counter, as clearly something went wrong (or did not work at all) with the data transfer between the online platform and the rental company.

I actually did not rent this car. I canceled the reservation with Hertz a few weeks ago. Kayak was never updated apparently. I actually contacted both kayak and hertz in the cancellation process, because despite canceling weeks in advance, I was charged $50 by hertz for the reservation. Their policy was confusing, and I was surprised and disappointed to be charged. I have no complaints with kayak, but was dissatisfied with this hertz experience.

Land in SFO at 10PM -- flight was 30 minutes early at 9:30 - go to Thrifty Rental counter. There are 18 people in front of me in line and ONE person working the counter - taking 15 minutes minimum with each person. Everyone in line is worried - seems to "know" the counter closes at 11PM - what will happen then? A second counter person comes out and everyone breathes a little easier, then the first counter person goes away - leave ONE counter person!!!! I waited 45 minutes and now there were 15 people in front of me (I have photos!) I called the number I was given to call for questions and imagine! They closed at 10PM - please call back tomorrow. At a few minutes before 11PM with still 13 or 14 people in line ahead of me - I went to the Alamo counter and rented a car and was driving out of the parking lot at 11:05. Worst experience ever. Never again and I caution everyone trying to get a Thrifty car late at night in SFO...

Car seats were really bad value for $13/day per piece (we needed 2). They were the cheapest possible seats, it would have been cheaper to just buy them. There was no good solution for a 42lb kid - too young for a booster seat, too big for the car seat. We had to shoehorn her into the available seat. Pickup of the car was good, but the person in charge of car seats was rude and seemed annoyed by my request to see available seats.
