Important information about Bakersfield car rentals

At the heart of California lies the city of Bakersfield, founded in a rich history of oil mining and agriculture. When you visit the city, exploring its historical attractions, outdoor activities, and the art scenes in Buck Owen's Crystal Palace will make your visit worthwhile. Driving in this town using a Bakersfield car rental means you will encounter California State Route 58, which connects east and west California. A major road you will drive through is State Route 99 that connects with Buck Owens Boulevard and other attractions in downtown Bakersfield. Whether you are looking for economy car rentals or going for a luxurious option, you will find them in over 20 car rental locations in Bakersfield. The multiple free and paid parking spaces around the city ensure you can confidently leave your car for some hours, including a luxury car rental in Bakersfield, to enjoy a relaxing walk with companions.

Car rentals in Bakersfield are a good option if you want to move around with freedom and avoid traffic on major roads. The city is not walkable, and neither is public transportation readily available. Driving yourself will allow you to explore many historical sites and attractions in the city at your convenience. Most of the major attractions like Hart Memorial Park and Fox Theater are located within the city limits, taking no longer than an hour's drive in your Bakersfield car rental. Rush hour is mostly in the morning and evening, and on major holidays, so avoiding these times will give you an easy time. Parking spaces are also available throughout the town, both public and private areas. A cheap car rental in Bakersfield is a good choice for exploring the city. When it comes to Bakersfield, driving is more convenient for freedom to access different sites, including those spread apart. For example, Lake Isabella and Brush Creek are a few miles from the city center. You can make a return trip in a passenger van rental for a picnic lunch at the lake's shore and finish with the California Living Museum in downtown Bakersfield. A drive to Lake Ming offers you a chance to spend a night camping, and you can safely drive back to your accommodations at your convenience.

When you plan to use rental cars in Bakersfield, keep in mind the driving laws of the city to avoid getting into trouble with law enforcement. Like other US states and cities, all drivers need to put on a seat belt while driving. Also, any child in a vehicle under five years of age should ride in a secured child car seat. The speed limit changes when you drive on suburban roads or highways. Keep an eye out for road signage that dictates different speed limits for different roads. It is best to verify with Bakersfield's department of motor vehicles for any recent law updates.

You will need a valid driver's license to access services from car rentals in Bakersfield. Most companies will require a passport to accompany the driver's license; make sure you have both documents valid and updated. A credit card with insurance is also required to rent a car. Check your credit card over before you head to any car rental location in Bakersfield. The age limit for obtaining a car rental in Bakersfield is 21 years. Some Bakersfield car rentals may charge an additional fee for travelers under 25.
