Pros: Prompt free pickup. Easy paperwork and quick to get into the vehicle. The car was nice and clean. Ease of return. Got exactly the same car that was requested online.
Cons: Some discrepancies with their billing system. On the computer it was $7-8 on top of final price. On their tablet, it was the exact price. When driving, can feel issues with gear change, acceleration/pickup etc with the car. This may be due to the wear and tear and different driving styles of previous renters. But never had any major problems or breakdown.

Great Experience, Very Little Setbacks
Pros: Extremely comfortable, great gas mileage, lots of nice features in the vehicle, drove very smooth.
Cons: We received the vehicle with one of the tires having much less tire pressure and we had to go and fix the tire pressure ourselves. There was also old used bottles of water and mouthwash under the seats.

In the end they compensated us
Pros: Once everything went horribly wrong they upgraded us and gave us money off next visit. The location tried to do right by us and typically we have wonderful experiences there. This was an isolated case but the review asks us about our last visit which was pretty bad.
Cons: Car smelled heavily of marijuana. No other location had a swap out to help us when we called. Then we got a flat tire. Spare tire was also flat. They told us to go to the nearest airport and they would swap it out. Nearest airport said they had nothing. Then 2 hours away the next airport that originally said they had nothing offered us an upgraded car as compensation. Wish they had offered it originally.

Car rental was at 12 but place was CLOSED!!!
Pros: Facility was closed when I arrived
Cons: I don’t understand why rental was at noon when facility was closed. I had to pay 200 extra to change locations. It was a huge disappointment and hassle. I’m extremely dissatisfied.

Top tips for renting a car in Sunnyvale

  • Sunnyvale, though it has much in the way of commuter public transportation, lacks public transportation within the city itself. Because of this, it is highly recommended that visitors rent a vehicle during their time in the city. This is especially the case if you plan on visiting some of the natural scenery outside of town, like Baylands Park, during your time in Sunnyvale.
  • The Bay Area has many airports to choose from. If you are arriving at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport, the rental car counters are located in the Rental Car Center across from Terminal B. At San Francisco International Airport, the rental car desks are found at the Rental Car Center located on the airport’s AirTrain Blue Line. As for Oakland International Airport, shuttle buses are available at all terminals to take passengers to the designated Rental Center.
  • Due to its largely suburban nature, it is very normal to see plenty of pedestrians and bicyclists wantonly crossing roads and jaywalking in Sunnyvale. This is especially the case during the warmer parts of the year and during afternoon hours. Drivers should be cautious and on the lookout for potential jaywalkers and keep them in mind when navigating Sunnyvale.
  • Rush hour in Sunnyvale, while not as bad as neighboring San Francisco, is worth avoiding at its peak hours. The morning rush hour starts around 6:00 a.m. and goes until 9:00 a.m, while the afternoon rush hour goes from around 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. As for roads to avoid during rush hour in Sunnyvale, US-101 and I-280 are the two main culprits for rush hour traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Sunnyvale at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Sunnyvale are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average
