FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly 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 the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
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 delay. As a general 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 must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

Norman Y. Mineta San José International Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Norman Y. Mineta San José International

Car Rental in San Jose Airport

Too often overlooked for San Francisco, San Jose benefits from a wide variety of exciting museums and galleries, and a location close to a number of natural parks. With easy access to the airport, you can arrive downtown with a rental car from San Jose Airport in a matter of minutes, as the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport – or SJC – is not far out. From there, you can explore the city's rich colonial history or take your cheap rental car from San Jose Airport on a road trip to Alum Rock Park, Mission Peak and beyond.

Main attractions in San Jose

San Jose’s most notorious attraction is Winchester Mystery House, an over-the-top Victorian mansion with labyrinthine hallways. Once the home to Sarah Winchester, heiress to William Winchester (of rifle fame), the home is wrapped in ghostly mystique. Several attractive museums and galleries can also be found around the city, including the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, San Jose Museum of Art and the MACLA (one of the premier spaces for young artists). No visit to San Jose would be complete without recognizing the area's boom in cutting-edge tech and start-up companies; you can visit the excellent Tech Museum of Innovation to get a glimpse into modern robotics and virtual reality.

San Jose also has a host of outdoor attractions, both in and outside of the city. For green spaces, the Plaza de Cesar Chavez is the city's oldest public area, named after the founder of United Farm Workers. Aside from the museums, the plaza also houses the must-see nineteenth-century Cathedral Basilica of St Joseph. There's also the very charming Japanese Friendship Garden in Kelley Park. The city is close to county and state parks in almost every direction, all of which can easily be reached with rental cars from San Jose Airport.

Tip:

If you’re into antiques, you can rent a car from San Jose Airport and head to Alameda near Oakland. Home to the large Alameda Antiques Faire, the area is awash with retro kitsch and inspiring antique furniture.

Where to eat in San Jose

San Jose has a healthy variety of dining options, including first-rate Japanese and Mexican restaurants. The former can be found in the historical Japantown area (on Jackson Street), offering everything from quick bento picnics and filling ramen to fresh sushi and lively izakaya grills. San Jose also has a Michelin-starred eatery, Adega, a fine Portuguese restaurant, which you should book in advance. What’s more, being so close to San Francisco Bay, San Jose Airport car rentals can easily take you to fine seafood and fish restaurants with the freshest catch on the coast.

San Jose has its fair share of child-friendly activities. The engaging History Park, an open-air museum recreating the city’s historical buildings, is perfect for little ones to explore. There’s also a zoo nearby, Happy Hollow, making for an excellent combined day out. The Children's Discovery Museum is one of the largest of its kind in the United States, offering a wealth of playgrounds and interactive activities to keep under-tens busy.
