Top tips for renting a car in Sacramento

  • While many of Sacramento's best features, including the State Capitol, are located in the downtown area and walking or public transportation are the best ways to go around, renting a car is a great option for travelers looking to explore other destinations outside the city. Driving is the best way to get to nearby places that are a must-see on every itinerary, such as California's Gold Country region, which lies on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Range. Tahoe City, located by the Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains, is a two-hour drive from Sacramento. For an unforgettable wine tasting experience, drive to Napa Valley, which is only about an hour west of Sacramento.
  • All the big car rental agencies can be found at Sacramento International Airport (SMF), at the rental car terminal. There is a free shuttle bus service that stops at the rental car terminal, and it runs every 10 minutes or so from both Terminals A and B.
  • Because it was built on a grid, Sacramento is usually easy to navigate when driving. However, some areas may have unmarked one-way streets, so make sure you check in which direction the cars are parked if you end up in a confusing intersection. This city also has pretty chilly winters, so make sure you are extra careful when driving if the weather conditions aren't ideal.
  • Sacramento has experienced an increase in congestion during rush hour in recent years, so avoid driving between 7 - 9 a.m., and then again between 3:30 - 6 p.m, as it can easily add one or more hours to your travel time. Both Highway 50 and the I5 experience high traffic levels during rush hour. If you have somewhere to be, plan ahead and leave yourself plenty of time to avoid being late.

  • In the downtown area, there are several options for parking on the street or in garages, so finding a spot shouldn't be too difficult. Street parking in Sacramento usually costs about $1.75 per hour, and is free after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays as well as all day on weekends and holidays. Some hotels also offer free parking.
