May 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

The rental cars office closes at 12pm. We booked a rental at 12pm, but no one told us we have to be there exactly on time or earlier. We got to the rental station a bit after 12. Everything was closed, we had to get a rental somewhere else for a ridiculous expensive last minute price. You should tell püeople that the rental car station in Los Altos closes at 12pm

Cons:

I needed to clean the windshield but there was no washing fluid in the tank. Next time I will check. I wasn’t told the office is closed on Saturday and since there were two notes in the window, one saying Open 9 -12 the other one Closed Saturday and Sunday I wasted half hour waiting

Pros:

The price

Cons:

I spoke to Hertz at 8am and 1pm to confirm my reservation and let them know I would be picking the car up close to 5pm, and a guy called me at 3pm to tell me they do not have a car for me. I was irate. He was very easy going and basically said 'sorry, my hands are tied and there is nothing we can do.' I made this reservation a week in advance, and paid in advance to be sure I would have a car. This was unacceptable. I eventually was put in touch with the manager at this location and he found me a vehicle (mid size SUV, not full size) that I was able to pick-up at 5pm. Mani was helpful and he did find a vehicle, but this should not have happened. Mani said that he asked the 3rd party rep to shut-off reservations a week in advance because they were not going to have enough cars. They had 70 reservations and only 40 cars available. That's 30 people who had their days ruined due to the overbooking

Pros:

Daniel was awesome. I didn’t realize this location closed early. When he going out I was going to be late he waited for me. The entire team at this location is 5 stars. They also found a larger and better car for. Will definitely rent again. Thanks again for an exceptional service.

Pros:

I booked a car on Kayak for my trip to San Jose, not knowing that Mountain View is far from the airport.

Cons:

There is no shuttle, or ride offered, from the San Jose Airport to the Budget Office in MV. When I called them they were unfriendly and unhelpful.

Very happy they were able to accommodate a 1-way rental. Staff at both ends were very friendly and helpful. Overall, the car did very well, though there was some vibration at higher speeds - likely due to mismatch of tires or need for realignment.

Pros:

Pick-up & drop-off were perfect! The site manager easily adjusted my pick-up time to match emerging changes in my travel plans.....and when one of our group developed a medical emergency which cancelled our trip outright, management re-did our One Way drop-off Weekly rate to become a 2 Day Local contract with no issues. The car was perfect and our travel would have been perfect as a result!

Pros:

From check-in, pick-up, and a personal drop off at our departure gate, the customer service was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this company.

Cons:

The rental car was a Jeep SUV and it was a horribly uncomfortable gas guzzler. I would definitely not recommend this car.

Cons:

I wasn't even able to get the car since they were closed on the day of booking. I called 3 times and was told someone would call me back to help get another car rental at the same price but no one called me back. Totally messed up my plans for the holidays. Never renting from enterprise again.

Car rental insurance in Mountain View

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Mountain View car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Mountain View.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Mountain View car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Mountain View

  • Mountain View may be in the heart of Silicon Valley, but there is more to the city than just the tech industry. About 30 miles to the southwest of the city lie the Santa Cruz Mountains, where visitors can spend the day kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking. At the northern border of the city is the San Francisco Bay where beachgoers can enjoy the Shoreline Lake Park or a walk along the Stevens Creek Pathway, which extends from the bay into the Cuernavaca neighborhood. Other city attractions include the Computer History Museum and the downtown shopping and dining area.
  • To get from the arrival terminals at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to the rental car center, simply follow the signs to the nearest AirTrain Blue Line stop and board the free shuttle train for the 5 to 7min ride to the car rental offices located at 780 N McDonnell Road. The AirTrain operates 24/7 and departs from each stop as frequently as once every 4min. There is an AirTrain Blue Line stop at every terminal.
  • Because of the city’s robust pedestrian and bicycle safety plan, drivers, walkers, and bikers can safely use the transportation network together. However, there are some particularly busy intersections that can be confusing for drivers, so use caution in these areas. Some intersections that are especially troublesome include Grant Rd & El Camino Real, West Middlefield Rd & Highway 237, and Central Expressway & Rengstorff Ave.
  • The morning rush hour throughout the San Francisco Bay area, including Mountain View, can last from around 6am to 10am. In the evening, you’ll find congested roadways from around 3pm to 7pm. Highway 101 is particularly notorious for having heavy traffic during rush hour, as it is a main route connecting the major cities in the Bay area. If you plan to visit San Francisco, San Jose or another nearby city during your stay, you would be well-served to try to schedule around the traffic no matter what route you plan to travel.
  • Book your car hire in Mountain View at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Mountain View are around 21% cheaper than other car types, on average
