KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was very friendly and thorough in inspecting the car, telling us where the emergency equipment was, fluids in the car, etc.

Cons:

The security deposit was really high at $1600, likely because it was in a different country and a bigger vehicle. I was also not allowed to decline the insurance. There was a mandatory insurance of $13.99/day. The other option that coverage everything was $32/day.

Pros:

Terrible customer service to say the least!

Cons:

Did not have available the type of vehicle I had reserved through Kayak. They offered me a lower class vehicle for the same price. They wanted force me to buy a local insurance policy, advising me that Allianz insurance was not valid in El Salvador. I was very angry and disappointed and did not take the car.

Pros:

Everyone was amazing at the store, service was great and they even picked-up my car without any additional fee since I was feeling sick and couldn't drive the car there.

Cons:

Car was in really poor shape, locks didn't work correctly. Could hardly get out of the passengers side, it took about 4-5 tries every time to open the door. Dangerous if we had ever gotten into an accident.

Cons:

Alamo did not honor the vehicle level i had reserved. I reserved a Kia Rio or equivalent and when i got there i was offered a Kia Picanto an told me that they were the same level. Defínete Kia Picanto is a smaller vehicle. They told me that if i wanted a Kia Rio i had to pay an upgrade. My reservation clearly said Kia Rio and i show my reservation. I didn’t pick up my vehicle and had to rent a vehicle with another agency. It was a very bad experience and had to spend more than what i had planned. I saw other custommers having the same issues, not a good practice.

Pros:

I just liked the staff was available and ready on time both during pick up and drop off.

Cons:

The car they gave me was a Hyundai smal car with mechanic transmission. Very uncomfortable and small. I understand economic cars are economic but this was extremely below the economic average.

Pros:

Nothing! Worst experience ever

Cons:

Rep tried forcing me to buy insurance after telling her that my credit card cover insurance. After going back and forth and I finally agreed to buy insurance cause I just wanted to get it over with. The rep refused to rent me the car afterwards. On top of that, they did not have the car I had reserve wich was a minivan. Whats the point of making a reservation if you’re not going to have the car you specifically reserved? Will never ever bother with national. And will not recommended to anyone.

Top tips for renting a car in San Salvador

  • San Salvador is a large city and contains a dense population and crowded streets. If you choose to travel via public transportation, you will miss out on some of the area's most popular activities and scenery. With a rental car in San Salvador, you can reach places outside of the city like the beautiful Lake Llopango or the impressive rock formation La Puerta del Diablo (the Devil's Door). Other stunning vistas, volcanoes, and national parks are within a short driving distance of the city's outskirts. Be sure to keep your options open by renting a car when you visit San Salvador.
  • Travelers should head to the terminal's eastern side inside the El Salvador International Airport for their car rentals in San Salvador. The car rental counters are located near the Delta and American Airlines counters. Many of the common car rental companies are represented at the El Salvador International Airport, including Budget, Alamo, Avis, and Enterprise. It is a good idea to get your San Salvador car rental at the airport because the airport is a 40min drive from San Salvador itself.
  • Driving in San Salvador is very similar to driving in North America. Drivers drive on the right side of the road, seatbelts are required, and phone use while driving is prohibited. The city often has lots of traffic, not just during rush hour. However, during the hours of around 6am to 9:30am, traffic can slow to a crawl. The same can be said in the late afternoon and evening. The most congested areas are near the city center, which generally has lots of traffic—visitors should expect delays when traveling here.
  • One element of driving in San Salvador that should be noted is that the city does not always warn of speed bumps. Drivers should be cautious that they do not hit a speed bump in the road that can damage the rental car. At times, San Salvador can have wet conditions, and drivers should make sure to drive safely during storms. However, San Salvador's streets are well-maintained, and traffic laws are simple to adhere to and follow.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in San Salvador for C$ 44 or less
  • Book your rental car in San Salvador at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in San Salvador are around 63% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in San Salvador are around 24% cheaper than other car types, on average
