FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Fresno Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Fresno

Car Rental in Fresno

Fresno may not be incredibly scenic, but its location right in the middle of California affords visitors easy access to some of America’s most beautiful national parks with a Fresno car rental. Fresno is also renowned for its organic food produce and booming independent restaurants which offer a wide variety of multi-cultural dishes. There are also plenty of museums, galleries and sports stadiums in the city for when you're not soaking up the great outdoors with a Fresno car hire.

Main attractions in Fresno 

Fresno makes for a lively and colorful getaway with plenty of day-tripping possibilities. Within the city itself, you'll find a number of fantastic activities and attractions, including the quirky Forestiere Underground Gardens. Unlike any other city park, this garden is hand-dug to keep cool, and it's attractively designed as a maze of grottos and well-tended gardens. You'll find a number of conventional parks here too, including Woodward Park and Roeding Park. The latter contains the quaint kids-favorite, Chaffee Zoo, as well as an amusement park, Storyland.

For a taste of Fresno’s history and culture, a visit to the iconic art deco-inspired Tower Theatre is a must. The Tower Theater is a center for Fresno’s performing arts and a culture hub surrounded by many local boutiques, shops, and cafes. Fresno Art Museum is also a worthy attraction, featuring a rotating selection of contemporary artworks. Other museums worth visiting with a rent a car from Fresno include the Victorian-era Meux Home Museum and the Kearney Mansion Museum, both of which offer an engaging glimpse into Fresno's nineteenth-century past. 

***

Tip:

Fresno offers ultra-fresh local produce thanks to all of the farms, vineyards, and orchards spread across the valley. Two particular highlights that are well worth a visit with a car hire from Fresno are Riverdance Farm, a delectable fresh fruit, nut and seed farm, and Organic Pastures, a first-rate dairy farm with tours.

***

Days out with a car hire in Fresno

Fresno is a perfect base for day trips. With rental cars from Fresno, you can visit some of the most breathtaking national parks and reserves on this planet, including Yosemite, Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Los Padres, and Mono Hot Springs. There are also a number of incredible lakes like Huntington Lake and Hume Lake, along with coastal adventures toward Big Sur and Monterey. Simply put, a low cost car hire in Fresno is one of the best ways to experience California.

Fun activities for children in Fresno

If you’re visiting Fresno with children, you’ll find a great variety of amusement parks, museums, outdoor excursions and activities. Within the city's Roeding Park, you'll find Rotary Storyland Playland, a small amusement park geared toward young children with fairy-tale inspired rides and experiences. At Blackbeard's Family Entertainment Center, you'll find a host of indoor and outdoor activities, including rollercoasters, carousels, go-karting and paintballing. The city also has its fair share of educational attractions, including Downing Planetarium for budding cosmologists.

How do you book a rental car in Fresno?

To find the cheapest car hire in Fresno, simply type your intended travel dates into the HAPPYCAR search tool for a comprehensive list of available rentals. HAPPYCAR finds and filters the best car hire in Fresno, including cheap car rentals in Fresno Airport FAT for travel throughout the valley. If you’re looking to take a one-way trip in California, you can also find cheap car rentals from the Burbank Airport BUR and cheap car rentals in San Diego, among other sites. You can even find cheap car rentals in Honolulu for a Hawaiian adventure from California (or any other state). 

What transport options are available?

Although Fresno is fairly compact with plenty of local buses (known as Fresno Area Express), a cheap car hire in Fresno is the best way to explore the surrounding national parks and famous Fresno farms. The airport is a convenient 13 minutes’ drive by car, and you can connect to other towns in the valley easily with car rentals in Fresno.

What is the cancellation policy?

Once you’ve found and booked the best car rental in Fresno you are free to cancel up to 48 hours before pickup. Any later and you’ll incur a charge.

When should you book your Fresno car rental?

When it comes to finding the perfect vehicle, it pays to book in advance. The sooner you book, the better deals you’ll be able to find. You can still find great offers last-minute but booking in advance offers greater security and flexibility.
