If you are planning to travel around San Ramon to San Francisco, the Wine Country or the Silicon Valley, your best mode of transportation is a car. Although public transportation to San Francisco is efficient via the BART train system, the areas north of San Francisco and south of the Peninsula are not as well connected. You’ll save a lot of time and get to see more of the great sights in the area.
There are four car rental companies in the city of San Ramon and one hauling service. Be sure to check each car rental for deals and special requests such as child seats, drop-off and pick-up instructions. All the car rentals have online reservations and operators can help you also with your reservation.
Hertz Rent-A-Car at 2005 Crow Canyon Place has a choice of cars to rent. Child seats are available on request. Rental cars are available with a one-hour advance notice and within 15 minutes from the Hertz Local Edition location.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers car rental and leasing services. The location on San Ramon Valley Boulevard is open Tuesday-Saturday.
Budget Car Rental is located on San Ramon Valley Boulevard. Budget Car Rental offers a free pick-up service. You’ll need to call the Budget rental office on the phone number listed on the reservation confirmation. Please check the Budget Car website for details.
The Avis office is on San Ramon Boulevard in a shopping center located at the corner of Norris Canyon Road. The rental vehicle must be returned during office hours.
U-Haul Neighborhood Dealer has rental trucks, trailers, pickups, and cargo vans for rent. This is a convenient and moderately inexpensive way to move.
Cars can also be reserved and booked at the airport in San Francisco International, Oakland International Airport and Mineta San Jose International Airport. Some car rentals have restrictions on where you can drop off the car depending on where you picked it up. Be sure to check your service agreement. Other details to be aware of when signing the contract are to check if you need to return your car with a full tank and if you need to purchase additional insurance at the car rental.
