Why rent a car in San Diego?
Playful San Diego is blessed by nearly perfect weather – it’s sunny and 68˚F here almost year-round. Bordered by a coastal strip of almost unbelievably beautiful beach towns, San Diego is surprisingly spread out. To get the most fun out of your trip, you’ll want the convenience of a rental car.
Where to go in San Diego
Downtown by the waterfront Embarcadero and after dark in the boisterous Gaslamp Quarter, exploring on foot is the way to go. The next morning, hop in a car and sail over the two-mile-long bridge to postcard-perfect Coronado, with its Silver Strand beaches. Heading north, you can ride the roller coaster at Mission Beach, crunch on fish tacos at Ocean Beach and revel in jewel-like La Jolla’s pretty coves, all just a short drive away. More North County beaches await farther up the coast, or take a day trip inland to the world-famous San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Getting around San Diego
Weekday rush hours tie up freeway traffic, as do weekend drivers along the coast, especially on the I-5. Metered or free street parking is pretty easy to find inland, but tougher by the beaches, where pay lots are an option. Overnight hotel parking can be pricey. For quick trips to Tijuana, don’t drive – most car-rental agencies prohibit their cars from being taken out of the country. Instead, park on the US side of the border and walk across.
San Diego car rental locations
All the major rental agencies can be found at San Diego International Airport (SAN), as well as at locations around town. Wherever you pick up your car, you’ll get a great deal on your San Diego car rental from Hotwire.
