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.

Sacramento Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Sacramento

Car Rental in Sacramento

The capital of California is often overlooked in favor of other cities – but if you never visit Sacramento, you're missing out. This quaint city had its heyday during the Gold Rush, and today there are plenty of historical monuments that commemorate that time. You can see them easily with cheap car rental in Sacramento, which is also a great way of exploring the natural areas around the city. Rent a car in Sacramento and discover California's hidden gem.

What can I see in Sacramento?

After you've found cheap car rentals at the Sacramento airport SMF, it'll be easy to get around town and see what the capital has to offer. The California State Railroad Museum, home of the Polar Express, is interesting for kids and adults alike. This museum tells the story of the Transcontinental Railroad, built to connect California with the East Coast, a chapter of American engineering history that is often overlooked. You can get there easily in your Sacramento car rental, and it's worth spending a couple of hours there.

More unique Californian history can be uncovered when you drive your car hire in Sacramento to Sutter's Fort State Historic Park. This old trading colony is where gold was first found in 1848. Restored to its 19th-century appearance, Sutter's Fort is open for self-guided tours. Here you can see fascinating artifacts, including items from the infamous Donner party, who resorted to cannibalism when stranded in the Sierra Nevada over the winter.

Tip

If you want to visit the Governor's Mansion, check in advance to see if it's open for tours. This elaborate, thirty-room building served as nothing more than a museum for 50 years after then-Governor Ronald Reagan moved out in 1967. Successive state governors found other accommodations, with Arnold Schwarzenegger even commuting each day by private plane from Los Angeles. However, in 2015 Governor Jerry Brown began to use it as his official residence again, and the building is now only open for tours sometimes. You'll still be able to explore the surrounding park with your Sacramento car hire.

***

Sacramento for kids

As well as the interesting museums, Sacramento has plenty of family-focused attractions to keep little ones happy. Drive your rental car in Sacramento to the Cal Expo grounds to visit Raging Waters, a hugely popular water park with more than 25 attractions. There are different levels of intensity, making this popular for both thrill-seeking teens and nervous little ones.

Kids will also enjoy a ride on the Sacramento RiverTrain, a historic journey on an old-style car through stunning landscapes. As well as kid-friendly excursions – which vary depending on the time of year, often including Easter or Halloween specials – there are adult-oriented journeys, such as beer or wine tasting railroad trips. Even murder mystery events take place, inviting you to find the killer before the train reaches the next station. Park your low cost car hire in Sacramento and enjoy the scenery.

Can I see giant redwoods in Sacramento?

It's very easy to drive to Calaveras Big Trees State Park, 100 miles from the city, where you can see the enormous trees that only grow on the slopes of California's Sierra Nevada. Pick up a cheap car hire in Sacramento and hit the road. The experience of driving in – and even driving through – the giant sequoia is one that no visitor should miss.

Getting around Sacramento

Use rental cars in Sacramento to explore the city and the surrounding areas. It's always possible to find cheap car rentals in the United States, and with so much to see in this part of California, they're the best option.

Which road trips can I take from Sacramento?

Use car rentals in Sacramento as a starting point to explore California. San Francisco is the closest major city, only about 90 miles away. For a longer, truly epic road trip, you could follow the Pacific coast south, passing through San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles. This journey of a little under 440 miles would finish in Riverside, where you can find cheap car rentals from Riverside airport RAL. Make this a multi-day trip if you like, as you'll have plenty of places to stop along the way.
