Rental Car Boundary Limits

2009 or Older Vehicles

Our goal is to ensure your safety while driving our rental vehicles. In order to provide you with a properly cared for and well maintained vehicle, we must limit the travel distance for our older model vehicles. If your rental car is a 2009 model or older, your vehicle is only allowed to travel within the boundary lines shown in the map to the right.
Your vehicle does include free roadside assistance but only within the set parameter. If you experience mechanical issues and the vehicle is outside the boundary lines it will be your responsibility to have the vehicle towed to our office.


 

2010 or Newer Vehicles

Vehicles manufactured year 2010 or later are permitted to travel anywhere within San Diego and Los Angeles county. Please see the map to the left as it displays the boundary lines for Los Angeles county. If at any time the vehicle exceeds the boundary lines we will be notified and a $175 travel fee will be imposed.


 

Cheap Rental Cars in San Diego

  •   The best car rental experience I have ever had. Best price. Nicest guy. I expect car people to just be out for the buck & uncaring about the people. Hurried, pressure to be on schedule.  I guess that has been my past experience. This was an entirely different experience. Great price, caring people. I was late & stressed out. They went the extra mile for me. Stayed late even gave me an extra day when another agency cancelled the truck i needed at the last minute. I'm kind of a small person. Most cars are too big requiring a bunch of uncomfortable cushions. I was given choices as to which car was most comfortable for me to drive.  Invited to sit in, try out & choose the one I wanted  I was given instruction on my chosen car. Time was taken to  to make sure everything was just right.  I actually felt cared about.  I was treated like a family friend. I will certainly return & recommend this business to my friends. The cars aren't fancy, but that is the least of my priorities. This is best way to save money & reduce stress. This is my go- to car rental from now on. Puppy love from Inventing Joy & Furry Folk

      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!

  •   Customer service is the best.     Cars are in good condition.  Whole process was simple and the rates are the best in San Diego.    All the positive reviews are for real.

      I have had the opportunity to rent a couple of times from San Diego Car Rentals. The best place for long term rentals. The cars are older but well maintained, the pricing is competitive. Emil  and staff are great, professional and very customer service orientated. Rentals are fast, easy and flexible, something the National companies do not offer. I highly recommend them!

      I recently rented a SUV in line because they were out of a van, but when I got there to pick up the car and tell them that I actually need a van! They just switched me to a van with the same price! (It suppose to be a little higher!) They care for customer even a short rental (only one day) like me. I really appreciated their friendly and helpful service.

  •   HANDS-DOWN the best car rental service in San Diego. I've rented from here twice now and there has never been any issues. Emil is a fantastic person and he responds quickly. I have never experienced any hidden fees, which every other car rental place tries to screw me over with. Emil is flexible and tries to work with his customers so that he can provide them with whatever needs they have. What you see is what you get!

    10/10 would recommend to anyone.

      These are the kinds of small businesses that I love to support! I was in San Diego for business.  I needed a car for the week. I spoke with Diane at San Diego Car Rentals. She said our cars are about three to five years old and are in excellent condition. I really don't need a brand new rental car. I saved easily a few hundred dollars compared to the usual car rentals at the airport.  My four year old car was in great running condition. It had 55K miles on it and ran beautifully. It was clean inside and out and the body was damage free. I recommend San Diego Car rentals if you want to save some bucks.                                  

    PS...remember to bring your lock box code (she will email you the code) to get your rental car keys when you arrive.

  •   Emil and Diana are great! Emil has kept touch and gives great advice. They have the best deals in the state. Their deals are better than any service out there. Even better than those places that has cheap in their name. Their cars are pretty good and they ensure to keep steady communication with their customers. I'm glad that I ran across this company because they are a great business and actually care about their customers and the community. They truly have great prices and great cars. The offer regular vehicles and premium which are around 2018 Base models.

    They get a great amount of business because of their fair deals. I highly recommend that you book a reservation if you are in need of a vehicle because you can also rent monthly. They will be sure to help you. Check them out!

      Awesome car rental business! I have been renting a car from this business since March and I am very happy with the car and their customer service. Plus their rates are a huge plus. There are no hidden or added fees and the car I rented was in really good condition.

    Most importantly I have been kindly helped by both Emil and Diane. They both are courteous and professional. I strongly recommend San Diego Car Rentals and I plan on using them again and again.
