Car Hire / Rental

(San Francisco, California - CA, USA)

The numerous car rental companies at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) are located in a large modern purpose-built car rental center, which is situated close to the terminal buildings. An AirTrain service connects the airport to the car rental center and there are also 24-hour Blue Line shuttle trains that run daily.

Highway 101 is situated close to San Francisco Airport and this provides easy access by road to the car rental center, which is clearly signposted.

Car Rental, Driving and Parking in San Francisco

Downtown San Francisco is a complex system of narrow one-way streets and steep hills. Many areas are bottlenecks and traffic can be heavy at times, with parking spaces often hard to locate. Also keep an eye out for local drivers, who often cross traffic and pull out without warning.

Traffic jams can be particularly bad during the morning rush hours when crossing the famous Golden Gate Bridge, or in the afternoon when heading north to the Sausalito area. A parking area is available on the northern side of the bridge.
