Top tips for renting a car in Oakland

  • Oakland is an eclectic city full of alternative arts and diverse food culture, with hidden gems sprawled across the city. Whether you are planning on attending an Oakland Athletics ballgame or checking out the long list of art museums in town, renting a car will give you the opportunity to make the most of your time here. Your rental car will also let you explore the Californian wilderness in the Anthony Chabot Regional Park or venture across the bay to the bright lights and bustling metropolis of San Francisco.
  • The Oakland International Airport is located only 10 miles south of downtown and has major car rental companies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise. Once you have viewed the best deals with KAYAK and have chosen your preferred company, pick-up at the airport is simple. Shuttle buses leave every 10 minutes from outside Terminal 2 and will take you directly to the airport’s Rental Car Center.
  • Be mindful that the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is a tollway when driving westbound to San Francisco, so, if you are planning on including this in your driving route, be sure to check the conditions of your rental agreement. There is a large number of one-way streets throughout Oakland, so it is best to use a navigational GPS to preplan your drive before taking off.
  • Rush hour traffic can be troublesome during the peak commuter periods as workers travel between the nearby cities of Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose. The morning rush is most evident between 6:30 am and 9 am, while in the evening it is best to avoid driving between 5 pm and 8 pm if possible. The I-80 encompasses the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and continues further north past Berkeley, so it is recommended to redirect away from this major thoroughfare during rush hour.
