KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Anaheim

  • As a visitor to Anaheim, you should rent a car to experience this extensive city. The best way to get around Anaheim is in your own vehicle, rather than depending on time-consuming public transportation. With a hire car, you will have the following local attractions at your disposal: Disneyland, Anaheim Garden Walk, California Adventure, and the rest of Orange County.
  • Excited to rent a car on your trip to Anaheim? If you are landing at John Wayne Airport, you will find the on-site hire car desks located in the Arrivals Hall, on the lower level, between Terminals A and B and opposite the statue of John Wayne. If you are using an off-site car hire company then you will be picked up by a shuttle from the Terminal.
  • Driving in Anaheim is an enjoyable experience as it’s blessed with good quality highways and freeways that link to other Californian cities. You will find many HOV and carpool lanes, also known as “diamond lanes,” which mean you must have at least two people in the car when driving in these lanes. Another thing to remember in urban areas of Anaheim is to always slow down when you see school zones or crosswalk signs.
  • On weekdays, Anaheim’s morning rush hour is usually between 7:30 am and 9:00 am, with freeways being the most congested at these times. During the afternoon, rush hour begins at 3:00 pm and lasts until 6:00 pm. You can expect the gridlock to start early on Fridays, and again on Sunday afternoons, when drivers rush to leave the city for the weekend.
  • Book your rental car in Anaheim at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Anaheim are around 33% more expensive than other car types, on average

Driving is a challenge but with the type of car, it becomes easy
Verified travelerNov 2023
Anaheim is very easy to drive in. The rental agency was very close and had a car the next day when we needed it. I'd use Alamo again.
Verified travelerNov 2023
Road was fantastic. Drive after 7pm onwards so it will be less traffic.

The rudest manager I’ve ever witnessed. Liar employees that called to confirm my reservation the day before and when I got there my car was not there. The manager said I have no control over this when I asked who has control he said I’m the manager but I can’t control anything here and sent me away. He didn’t care and was making fun of another customer who wanted to pay cash with another employee right in front me. That store either needs to close down or the whole team needs to change because it’s ruining enterprise reputation. I would never rent from enterprise again because time is gold and I waisted 2 hours of my time that day driving to OC from LA. Bad business very bad!!!!!

Pros:

Pick up took very long as they were quite unorganized. Drop off was a nightmare- they were supposed to be open by 9:30am and I waited until 12 noon (which was my drop off time) and they did not open their business. There was no one there yet they had a line of customers waiting out in the cold.

Cons:

Organization, communication with customers, and promptness- no one took responsibility for today.

That the inside of the car was clean and there was a full tank.

Cons:

When you book a car online they have the car you booked not make you take a $2 a day upgrade when it was there fault for not having the car in the first place. Also they need to train there employees to take better care of the customers and not let them stand in the lobby waiting to be checked out while they wait check everyone else out. And they could have washed the car saying it rained the day before is no excuse to give me a dirty on the outside car.

The location we went to had terrible customer service. Their website said they close at 4pm. We booked for a car pick up around 12 pm and I got to the location around 12:15pm. Come to find out they stuck a printed piece of paper on their door saying they close at 12pm. We did not receive a curtesy call saying they are closing early. No email from them either. When I got to the location, there were still employees inside that can clearly see me and another couple there who had a 12 pm pick up as well. No associate came to talk to us. No associate even acknowledged us. Later on we see them run out the back door really fast and lock up. I went up to someone to ask what was going on and all one of them said was “we are closed already.” Customer service was just absolutely terrible. Had there been better communication or at least a heads up that they planned on closing early, no one would have been upset but the way they handled everything was terrible and upsetting.

I didn't like anything about renting from Hertz. They didn't have a car when they said they would. Their local agents did what they could, however their reservation service is a joke. I wasted an entire day of my vacation trying to get the car I had ordered and then had to take a smaller vehicle or not have a car. Hertz gave no compensation. What an absolute joke.

Cons:

Hertz should change their name to Hurts! What a joke of a company to rent from! I have no idea how they have the reputation they have as a quality rental company!
