Important information about Sacramento car rentals

Car rentals in Sacramento are a great way to see the city. Also called the River City, Sacramento features breathtaking scenic ocean views and river adventures. Check out Old Sacramento Historic Park to go back in time to Sacramento’s history. Spanning many acres, the Sacramento Zoo features a variety of animals. Enjoy dining at the Old Sacramento Waterfront, with dozens of different restaurants to choose from. There is also an abundance of metered parking throughout the city. Interstate 80 Business (I-80 BL), also called the Capital City Freeway, is a business loop of Interstate 80 (I-80) through Sacramento. The Sacramento Regional Transit District operates many different bus routes and miles of light rail. The best way to get around Sacramento is by car. And luckily, car rentals in Sacramento are available all over the city. Also, the transit system can get a bit crowded, especially on weekends.

The most logical way to see Sacramento and the surrounding suburbs is by luxury car rental. Car rentals in Sacramento are easily accessible and so much fun to drive. There is plenty of parking as the city manages many parking lots and garages within walking distance of Capitol Park. Like many cities, traffic can be heavy, and some highway sections ranked poorly for traffic congestion. Your best bet is to use GPS for alternative routes, but don’t miss the ride in a cheap rental car in Sacramento on Route 160, the River Road Scenic Byway. While the downtown area has walkable areas, to get to midtown or surrounding parks you will need a rental car. The rural road winds through California's Delta and has beautiful views. The Delta is a historic and agriculturally abundant area filled with amazing scenery and eclectic towns.

There are many car rental locations in Sacramento at the Sacramento International Airport, as well as throughout the city. Before you drive your cheap car rental in Sacramento, here are some rules you want to follow. Drivers must pull into another lane when approaching or passing a waste collection vehicle with amber lights flashing. When taking a right turn on a highway with marked lanes, the driver takes a right turn into any lane legally available to traffic moving in that direction. HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes are available on most interstates, but keep in mind it’s for several passengers. Texting while driving your economy car rental is not permitted and is highly enforced with fines. Seatbelts are mandatory. If you’re planning on going out and having a drink, we suggest leaving your car rental behind and not drinking and driving. In the state of California, it’s illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or more. You can check with the Sacramento Department of Motor Vehicles for any possible law updates.

Most of the well-known car rental agencies allow crossing the Canadian border in Sacramento car rentals. As for the Mexican border, it’ll be more difficult to find an agency that allows it, though some locations do. The borders to both countries are quite far so make sure to also find car rentals in Sacramento without a mileage limit if you’re going to either of these countries during your visit. However, if you wish to take your rental car to Mexico, contact the rental agency beforehand to confirm it’s possible. You’re required to have valid entry and exit permits and visas as well as a Mexican Automotive Liability Insurance that you can’t get in Mexico, and would have to previously obtain at the car rental locations in Sacramento. Crossing state lines is also permitted, although remember to abide by the neighboring state’s laws while you’re visiting.

If you wish to rent a car without a credit card, there are a couple of options for getting car rentals in Sacramento with a debit card instead. Some of the agencies available in Sacramento, like DOLLAR, allow debit cards from major banks without making any credit checks. Confirm beforehand with the car rental agency if they make credit checks for debit card users. Furthermore, if you wish to pay with a debit card you may be asked to present proof of travel plans like a return flight or train ticket as well as an extra form of identification, like a passport. It’s also common that the name on the card used to make the payment must coincide with the renter’s name. Some of the car rental companies’ restrictions vary depending on the office you’re renting the car from. We suggest confirming previously if you will be able to pay with a debit card upon retrieval of your car rentals in Sacramento.

For car rentals in Sacramento, you must be at least 20 years of age. Rental cars in Sacramento are available throughout the city. The vehicle can only be driven by an authorized driver that rented the car. The individual must present a valid driver’s license and a current major credit card or debit card. A foreign driver’s license must be current and issued by the country of residence of the renter and any additional drivers. While insurance coverage is not necessary to purchase through the rental car agency, renters are liable for any damages to the vehicle while driving it. If you’re visiting Sacramento from a foreign country you won’t need a special permit, like an International Driving Permit, to drive in California unless you’re staying for over 90 days. However, if you’re planning on crossing state lines you must abide by the neighboring state’s laws and the police force may require an International Driving Permit in case of an accident.
