I reserved a "Full Size" pick up truck for a road trip with my family a month in advance, when I went to pick it up they offered me two options, both mid size pick ups, neither of which would fit my family. I showed them the reservation and they said they had supply issues and only had what was on the lot. Fortunately I was able to find a full size pick up at Enterprise Rent a Car.

Cons:

Kayak let me book a Hertz rental at Santa Rosa airport which does not have a hertz location. It’s been closed for a few months. I had to go to the Santa Rosa Avenue location instead. This caused a hiccup in my entire travel plans.

Pros:

The staff was great. They arranged our after hours pickup at the Elmira NY airport at 10pm last night, 5 hours after the Hertz counter closed.

Cons:

We were horrified to discover fa partly full McDonalds drink cup and some paper napkins in the back seat. Normally, we wouldn't much mind. But these are covid times. We were horrified that the car had not been cleaned carefully, and obviously could not claim to have been disinfected. We drove home last night worried all the way about being in that car. Unclean car is really unacceptable in these times.

Pros:

Pickup and drop off were great; however, I for got to fuel up and it cost me $131.00 for a 1/2 a tank of gas. Can you help me with this loss?

Cons:

What ever you do don't forget to fill the fuel tank, it will cost you ten times the amount to fill if the agency has to do it.

I made a reservation for 5 pm for a location but even though i got the confirmation # they closed before i got there. On phone I've been told to go to airport location cuz the car is ready for me. Over there the guy didn't want to give me any car saying he doesn't have. After 1h fighting he gave me a smaller car for a bigger price. Just beautiful

When we arrived from our flight the Avis agent was not there. Agents from other rental car companies told us, and other travelers, that the Avis agent decided to go home early. We were there before the counter closed at 9:30 pm. I will never rent from Avis again!

Quick, easy and as simple as it should be.

Cons:

I spoke with the representative at STS and confirmed that there wasn’t a fee to drop the car in San Fran at a different location. I picked the car up and noon and told him we were escaping the fires and dropping the car off today. We go to San Fran a couple of hours later. The office had closed at 1pm and the valet at the hotel told me there was a $25-$35 charge?

Pros:

I liked that it was easy to find, night drop was available.

Cons:

Being late night drop off, would’ve made more sense to me a little better instructions about what papers are being dropped off. Also, a sensor had gone off about a brake light bulb that went out en route to my destination. No one was available to inform about this, so a space on the paper that gets turned in would be a good idea. I improvised and wrote it on the side

Pros:

Car was clean and in good condition

Cons:

No sign about where to drop off keys and the number left at the desk went to voicemail from which we never heard back. Fortunately someone finally informed us the drop box was outside. The attendant from pickup may have told us but it would be helpful to have a sign at the desk.

Oct. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The guy I picked the car up from was friendly and helpful. I declined insurance and I appreciate that he did not push it.

Cons:

However, the car reeked of cigarettes after about 3 miles down the road, so I assume they cleaned the interior to eliminate the smell but not the air filter. That was kinda gross but not that big of a deal. The big deal was after I returned the car. I returned it an hour earlier than the deadline stated on the contract, but then got an email with an invoice stating I owed $20 for a late fee and I'm still trying to figure that one out. On top of that I was quoted $75 online, but then that jumped up to $99 inexplicably when I picked it up. I will update this to a better score if they fix the inaccurate bill but so far I am pretty disappointed.

The staff was friendly and understanding through all of our problems with the cars.

Cons:

first car we got smelled so bad we had to return it after a couple hours. The second car they tried to give us smelled the same. It was like they dumped a bottle of perfume in the carpet to cover up smoke smell. The only car they had that didn't smell bad was a mini van. Not what I reserved. Two weeks after returning the van the $200 hold on my credit card is still there. Not happy about the whole experience.

May 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was fuel efficient and compact which helped a TON in the greater Bay Area for travels.

Cons:

The older model rented to me (based on the pricepoint but not entirely clear from the internet description) is an automatic that drives like a manual shift. Very specific feature of the Smart Car and was a little annoying when trying to pull a hill-side along the 101. Also, with high winds on the Richmond Bridge, the car felt VERY UNSAFE. The wind gusts were about 40-50mph and the car was swaying and wobbling in the lane. Yes, I knew to drive at a reduced speed but the bridge is 9miles long and it was a scary wind shaking 9mile drive. Something I didn't factor in.

Pros:

The pickup and drop-off went very smoothly. The company was easy to work with and the car was very clean. This was my first time driving a smart car. It is more roomy and comfortable than I would have guessed. It doesn't have a lot of power, but it makes up for that in gas mileage. There were no issues with the car itself - it was in great shape. No complaints at all. I would definitely rent with Sixt again.

Top tips for renting a car in Santa Rosa

  • Car rentals in Santa Rosa will allow you greater access to the world-famous wine country of Napa Valley. With some of the most famous wineries in the world nearby, a rental car ensures you have reliable transportation to and from the rural areas where they are located. If you are hoping to visit nearby San Francisco, a Santa Rosa rental car gives you greater flexibility and allows you to explore more parts of the city from iconic perspectives, such as a drive down Lombard Street.
  • The local airport for Santa Rosa is the Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport (STS), named after the creator of Peanuts who grew up in the area. On-site rental counters offer car rentals in Santa Rosa within the main terminal. The nearest major airport is Oakland International Airport (OAK), located about 65 miles away, which has a Rental Car Center shuttle to bring travelers between the terminals and their vehicles in the lots to the northwest of the airport.
  • The city of Santa Rosa is spread out along Highway 101, which means that many of your travel directions will involve driving this iconic route. The highway is often crowded with commuters that make the daily pilgrimage to San Francisco, which makes for some challenging merges when the highway drops to only two lanes in each direction. If you are not comfortable with driving on a highway in unfamiliar territory, consider adjusting your directions to utilize major streets like Mendocino Avenue instead, and give yourself some extra time.
  • The rush hour traffic of San Francisco and Oakland can impact Highway 101 and side streets in the event of delays from car accidents or construction. The San Francisco rush hour is typically from 7am to 9am and 4pm to 7pm. Within Santa Rosa, commuters can sometimes clog up Mendocino Avenue in an effort to avoid Highway 101, which can lead to even greater delays at the freeway on-ramps.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Santa Rosa for C$ 103 or less
  • Book your rental car in Santa Rosa at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
