KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Cathedral City

  • Car rentals in Cathedral City, California, are the perfect way to explore everything this small city has to offer. While you can find some public buses, these are few and far between and are not always the quickest way to get to your destination. This is why car rentals in Cathedral City will come in handy: you will not have to rely on the schedules and routes determined by public transport and you can instead explore the area on your own time. For example, you may want to take a road trip to nearby Joshua Tree National Park or visit Ocotillo Park in your Cathedral City car rentals.
  • If you are flying to Cathedral City, you will most likely be arriving at Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) in the nearby town of Palm Springs. You will be happy to know that you can pick up car rentals in Cathedral City directly from PSP. The rental car counters here are located directly within the arrivals terminal building, near baggage claims. PSP is also served by a few car rental companies that are located off airport grounds, so these companies offer a free shuttle service to their locations.
  • Driving car rentals in Cathedral City is pretty easy. As this is a resort town, the roads are in good condition and drivers generally follow the rules of the road. You will not encounter many winding roads or roundabouts, but you will need to watch out for pedestrians or bikers who may be sharing the road with you.
  • Driving Cathedral City car rentals can sometimes be challenging during morning and evening rush hours, usually from 7 am to 9 am and again from 5 pm to 7 pm. Try to avoid the main highways, such as I-10 and Highway 111 during these times. In addition, this area of California is prone to intense heat, drought, and possible wildfires, so always make sure to check the road conditions before setting out for a long drive.

The address is misleading as the office located on Airport Drive but the office is about half a mile or so from the actual airport, and there is no shuttle. It wasn’t a big deal for me, but might be for some. Once I arrived the staff was friendly, efficient, and courteous. The prices were good.

Outstanding customer service! Maria was super nice, personable and professional. I was visiting from out of town. At drop off I asked about an Uber cost and she gracefully offered to arrange a ride back to my rental 5 miles away. Brook drove me back. She was too was very sweet and a pleasure to talk with on the ride. Best experience with a rental Company.

The time to pick up defaults to noon which is when they close. I would have gone I. Earlier had I know but that was the time it said I was supposed to pick up my car. Luckily I got there at 1157 but I saw multiple people get turned down for cars they already reserved at 1202 because they were “closed” at noon. The employee and manager who were there could have easily waited the ten minutes it takes to get a car but decided to leave their customers agendas without renting the car they had already reserved

Mar. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The employees were terrific, especially Keith and Jason. However, the first vehicle we received was so smoke tainted that my wife could not handle it. After a few fits and starts we did receive an upgraded vehicle to replace it, a Kia Optima. However, the Optima apparently has a quirk as the passenger front seat is so low to the ground and not adjustable the passengers are not comfortable.

Cons:

See above. Also, given the increased rates as compared to the last couple years it seems like the vehicle should be newer than a 2015.

7.2 Good

Pros:

KAYAK

Pros:

We rented the car for 6 weeks! Never did that before but it worked. We struck it lucky and happened to get a brand-new car (7 miles on the odometer when we got it!) and that was a treat. No surprises on the price.

Cons:

It took a long long time to sign up and to return the car, because we rented it for so long, 6 weeks. Both times the agent had to turn us over to a specialist agent, and I don't find that surprising, but both times the first agent struggled with the problem for a very long time before turning us over. Also had to move our 6 weeks' worth of luggage from first to second agent, far away in one case. The reason we had to deal with an agent on our return was that we switched credit cards -- that ought to be quick and easy, surely?

We were unable to pick up the car that we reserved because it was not available when we got there. There were no cars in our class available and their only option was to rent us a larger car for a larger price. We canceled our rental and will likely not be using Avis or kayak again. It was a very unfortunate experience.

Ordered a Focus or similiar. Got a 4 wheel drive truck. Shortly after leaving the lot, the needs maintenance light came on.

I really didn't want to drive a car from Palm Springs to LA with the needs maintanence light on the whole time.
