  •   Had an awesome experience. Hassel free both pick up and return. Emil works with you on your situations. His office was close and i had to drop off the vehicle and he showed up within 5 mins. Great guy, great service, and great price. Will definitely refer friends and family here for long term rentals in the San Diego area. What he advertises is exactly what it is. No hidden agenda or fees.

      They make the car rental process go as easy and smooth as possible.  I rented a car from them for 6 months and was very satisfied with the car and with the customer service.   I will definitely be calling them next time I need to rent a car!  The best customer service!!

  •   I have been renting a vehicle from San Diego Car Rentals for over 6+ months and have been extremely pleased with the vehicles and overall service I have received.
    Emil is a pleasure to do business with, he does everything to make sure your needs are met.
    If your rental is long term, he checks in on a regular basis to make sure the car is running properly, and if it does need service, fixing any problems are his priority. The garage that services the cars is run by a friendly, helpful staff who look at the car immediately when it is dropped off, I have yet to wait longer than 30 minutes when I have taken a vehicle there.
    If you are looking for the Easiest, Hassle Free Car Rental Experience, look no further, San Diego Car Rentals is it!

      I chose this company for its unbeatable prices on longterm car rentals. The personal service  was, unexpectedly, as good as I've gotten in any commercial transaction. Emil is a saint -- patient in explaining everything, and devoted to being helpful, flexible and dependable. He's the kind you root for in life, not just in business.

      i live in florida and travel quite a bit for my work (i am on planes and in car rentals about 25 wks/yr). ... this year, san diego was my last stop on my calendar. and so i opted to stay after my week work was complete to spend a few additional weeks visiting a friend and for personal, quiet R&R. ... the friend i was staying with (and who lives in san diego) was the one who found san diego car rentals website for me... both the website AND the reviews were so outstanding and totally fitted what i needed that i had to call just to check if "they" were for real. lol. AND by golly, they were & they are (for real)! ... from aleigha who took care of the paperwork all the way to sending me a beautiful text message after having dropped the car off "after hours" to emil (the fab owner of san diego car rentals). i rented from him, a very well-maintained, older car model for 21 days, from 12/20/16 thru 1/9/2017... it was a breeze, a pleasure and oh, so reasonable... AND my personal holiday gift was encountering the kind of human being emil is... his extraordinary attentiveness, time availability, relatedness and service is simply priceless.... i had the most fabulous experience. AND i highly recommend you try on his company. you are in for a serendipitous treat!

  •   This is an amazing little company and you really get personal service.  We had a minor issue with a car (check engine light came on, probably for no real reason) but she came and drove a new car out to our house and exchanged it on the spot with no hassle for us at all!  Amazing!  We kept the car a few extra days at a reasonable rate and had a very flexible and easy return.  If I need a car like this again I will definitely be back.

      I recently rented a Hyundai Tiburon for a period of 3 months, as I just moved back to San Diego for the summer, and decided to rent rather than buy a car.  My experience has been exceptional.  Emil provided concierge-type service that was friendly, professional, and personal.  The car ran well, and in fact, when I had an issue with the windshield wiper, he had it immediately replaced and had the car washed for me as well, free of charge. I really appreciated how quick he was to respond and the attention he gave it. I'm used to renting from bigger car companies and paying a whole lot more.  This is my first time working with a long-term provider, and I will definitely use this company again for my car rental needs.

  •   You won't find a better place to do a long-term car rental! Emil is very professional and treats you like a life-long friend. Whenever I have a question or need assistance, he is quick to respond with helpful solutions. My experience with this company has been nothing shy of a five-star service.

    I once locked my keys in the rental, in the rain, with a dying phone -- Emil handled the situation so quickly and had help sent my way immediately to save the day!

    On top of great customer service, the pricing is so competitive. I feel lucky to have fallen into the hands of a company that actually cares for the customer. Thank you San Diego Car Rentals and to Emil for being so helpful!

      Wow, best car rental experience I've ever had! Everything was so fast, no lines at checkin or checkout, no upselling. Emil runs this business so well and everything goes very smoothly.
    I always like the cars I rent from San Diego Car Rentals better than my own cars.

    I am a return customer, one can save a small fortune renting a used car. I consider Emil a friend after the professional, courteous way he runs his business. This business is the only way I am able to come to San Diego for extended periods.
    Highly reccomend them.

  •   Fantastic experience renting from Emil and Diane at San Diego Car Rentals. I've recommended this place to all of my friends visiting the area.

    Over the summer, I needed a 1.5 month car rental. Emil's rates are extremely reasonable, and the cars he provides are in great shape.

    Emil was available to help us with any questions or concerns-- he would respond so quickly and always made sure everything with the rental was great. Besides that, Emil and Diane were always kind and friendly, making every step simple and easy. I will definitely be renting from them next time.

      Sooooo glad I found this place!

    They specialize in long term rentals (minimum 7 days) and their prices are great!

    I called and was quoted a price by Diana for their red 2008 Chevy Impala.
    She sent pictures of the car and payment authorization via email. No deposit or credit card is required. My debit card was not charged until I picked up the car.

    When I picked up the car it was after hours, so the key was in a lockbox and the contract was in the car.
    The car's interior and exterior were both clean.
    The windshield fluid light was on as it was low, but thankfully I did not need to use it.
    Even though the car is 10 years old, it is clean and fully loaded with leather seats and a sunroof.
    There is no bluetooth or USB port.
    I had to purchase an iPhone charger for the cigarette lighter.

    The office is located around back of the strip mall.
    Just return your rental as you picked it up- gas, clean & washed.

    They do not provide transportation to/from the airport. Taxi is approximately $35 one way.

    I definitely recommend this place!
    This is your best bet if you require a rental for minimum 7 days.

    I'll be back...

      I've been a renting from San Diego Car Rentals for just over two years. My experience has been nothing but positive. The cars are always dependable, safe and extremely well maintained. It has been a pleasure doing business with Emil, who is very friendly, knowledgeable and always helpful.
