6.8 Good8 Oct 2020
Cons: The car smelled, as if a previous driver had been smoking in the vehicle, and it wasn’t throughly cleaned.
4.0 Okay2 Oct 2020
Pros: Dropoff was easy.Cons: The reservation was at a Hertz location OFF AIRPORT PROPERTY. I had to get a ride there at my expense. This may have been an oversight when I was booking, but I am pretty sure I reserved at the ONT airport location. I reserved a full size SUV but there were none available so I was stuck in a minivan instead. What is the point of a reservation if that vehicle type is not going to be available.?
7.2 Good8 Sep 2020
Pros: Vehicle was what I reserved.Cons: I had to add air to all 4 tires as they were below recommended tire pressure and the maintenance shop was closed.
6.4 Good3 Aug 2020
Pros: The value was great.Cons: The service was poor: I had to wait for awhile, then when I went to get the truck it was not the size truck is reserved. They had a size I could use but it took some time to get approval to change it. Then when trying to leave the wait at the gate took a very long time due to computer issues.

6.4 Good10 Dec 2019
Pros: Staff at both Hertz locations were very helpful. Dave at the airport location was fabulous, and helped me out with my car rental issuesCons: Please make it clearer that the pickup spot is not at the airport. This caused a lot of trouble, time, extra costs, and hassle for me. The car was not ready for me. It was still being worked on by the mechanics (ok that in itself is not reassuring). It was to be done by 1000. I showed up @ 1330, and the car was not on the premises because it was not ready.

2.0 Mediocre3 Dec 2020
Pros: Nothing. I rented the car to pick up at Irvine, not at Ontario.Cons: I tried to make contact about the error with no success. I had to rent another car with another rental to pick up the car at Irvine.
3.2 Mediocre25 Nov 2020
Pros: The car was a good price and kinda okCons: The customer service from fox was bad and the extension fees are outrageous
6.8 Good17 Nov 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and professionalCons: The car smelled like cigarettes and had ash in the center console. I reserved an economy sub-compact but was given a mid-size sedan that got far worse MPG than what I had requested. I needed a small fuel efficient car to a lot of driving in for work. I got a much larger than necessary car and paid more for fuel by at least 30%.
6.0 Good15 Nov 2020
Pros: Friendly staffCons: Had to pay more for different car due to shortage
6.0 Good3 Nov 2020
Pros: Drop-off and bus to airport was great.Cons: Calling this "an airport" location was misleading as we had to take two shuttles to get to rental counter. Got a minivan instead of the SUV I contracted for.
5.2 Okay25 Oct 2020
Pros: drop off was easyCons: Picking up the car was a poor experience. Lack of staffing, a card reader that rejected every customer's credit cards and overall system that was much longer to get through than other rental agencies. Line was out the door and it seemed that it averaged about 15 min per customer to get the keys.
8.8 Excellent21 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff was awesome, car was great good gas mileage staff was informativeCons: Better info to find shuttle and best if one did not have to take two shuttles and shuttle drivers seemed to be under staffed
6.0 Good15 Oct 2020
Pros: Dropping off was easyCons: It takes 2 bus rides from the airport to get to Fox. I found the buses to be the most concerning part of traveling in terms of being able to socially distance. Checking in took a long time because there are only two employees checking in at a time, and they get a bus load of people checking in all at once. There was nothing wrong with the car, but it did smell like cigarettes.
7.2 Good6 Oct 2020
Pros: The pick up was a bit of a hassle but it was our own fault. We got delay for the drop off, I called customer service and they extended my drop off time for a small fee, which was awesome.Cons: When we pick up the car there was a funny smells inside, we wanted to return the car but we were so behind into the trip, we decided just to bare the smell.
3.6 Mediocre28 Sep 2020
Pros: Not much to say, other than the really overworked gentleman who checked us out. He definitely hustled to check everyone out and then drive the bus to the airport drop off.Cons: First, the business is marketed as being onsite of the Ontario airport. It is not. You take the shuttle to the rental car area and then have to hop on another shuttle that takes you down the street to their facility. When we get there, they’re telling the customer in front of us that they don’t have her reserved car and are “upgrading” her to a different car. Same thing then happens to us when the guy says “as you can clearly see, we do not have any hybrids”. Can we clearly see what’s in the lot?? And when we mention that we specifically chose a hybrid for the fuel efficiency, the response is “well this car is about the same on the highway”. We’re not just driving the highway so great thanks for costing our trip more money since now gas is going to cost us more. Oh and they charge $7.99/gal if you don’t fill it up yourself. The car we got smelled badly of cigarettes as well. Overall really inconvenient and bad service.

2.0 Mediocre2 Jun 2020
Pros: I wasn’t even able to rent the car. I reserved it online with an Apple credit card. When I was dropped off at the airport to pick up the car with the SAME CC I used to reserve it I was told I couldn’t rent it because they don’t take that CC. I had no ride home, no other CC’s. I was forced to use a different rental company that was more than twice the price. And the guy was a jerk about it to boot.Cons: Update your systems to take CC that online allows. It was a terrible inconvenience and put me in a financial bind considering I have to pay almost $400 more for a rental. I’m beyond disappointed.
10.0 Excellent14 Feb 2020
Pros: New car, fast and easy check inCons: nothing comes to mind
10.0 Excellent10 Feb 2020
Cons: The . Mini van was comfortable, had alot of space. Driver well. Cost was good too. I would buy this car.
4.4 Okay3 Jan 2020
Pros: The person Sarah who I encountered at Alamo was rude and refused my reservation!! The reason given was that the reservation was made within 24 hrs and it was not! There was no options given to us by her not until we contacted the 800 number and asked for a supervisor we got our reservation! Also we had booked for 3 days and set the return of the vehicle to 12 midnight and Sarah change it 948am! Extremely dissatisfied with AlamoCons: Better friendly customer service by Sarah as she definitely wasn’t a happy camper

Cons: There was not enough vehicles when I went to rent my vehicle. I had too settle due to a vehicle recall so a lot of the vehicles were taken out of rotation.
10.0 Excellent22 Oct 2019
Pros: The guy who helped me was very friendly and wished me happy birthday!Cons: I guess the only thing would have been more details on setting the car up (e.g. bluetooth, seats and mirrors)

Pros: Everything went great!
8.0 Excellent11 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Pick up time took awhile and they did not have the vehicle I booked, but was able to work with me and gave me a good deal with something similar or yet better. Drop off was easy and quick.Cons: The vehicle wasn’t thoroughly cleaned (saw few stains on leather seats, dirty foot prints on back seats, and the drivers seat belt had a strong perfume smell. So I had to clean and sanitize myself esp during this pandemic I wanted to make sure everything was wiped down good before my road trip. It seemed like the car was just used before pickup so it looked like they did a quick wipe down of the car before I took it. In the end, I’d say the cleaning part could have been better.
4.4 Okay2 Aug 2020
Pros: drop was good, shuttle service to airport was good butCons: pick up from airport was poor, long wait to check-in on a Saturday as more staffing was needed.

Pros: The airport ran out of cars and my reservation was shifted to a nearby Avis 2 miles away. I went to get my car but they were closing. The employees refused to help me get my car.Cons: Actually give me a car. I asked the airport if they could accommodate and they send they would if I gave them $300 more for an upgraded car. This entire situation was not my fault and I decided to not do business with Avis. I will not rent with Avis in the future.

7.2 Good16 Oct 2019

3.6 Mediocre17 Aug 2019
Pros: Noting the sales associates was very rude and unhelpful when I called to explain to them what was going on a guy was screaming at me ask me what doses he want me to do the air condition was not that cold and the last person who had the car had a dog so my asthma was acting up thay told meCons: Thay told me to drop off the car at 6:00pm when I got there thay was close
2.8 Mediocre15 Jul 2019
Cons: The agent checking out my car charged me for gas without even checking the gauge. When I asked him he started getting abusive. I had to go talk to the office clerk to get the matter resolved. I have reported the field agent's bad behavior to Avis.
3.2 Mediocre26 Mar 2019
Pros: Easy drop offCons: Everything else. Dirty car, inside and out. Including dents & scratches. When I have rented with Enterprise, they won’t rent out cars with damage larger than a golf ball size. This looked like someone hit a pole. Not to mention they I wasn’t provided with the type of car I reserved online.
4.8 Okay14 Mar 2019
Cons: Took over an hour to get my car. No one at check in counter for 20 mins. No cars available. Had to wait for hem to be cleaned.
10.0 Excellent1 Feb 2019
Pros: Roy H. administrated the contract and gave me directions to the slot where the car was located and directed me to the roads I needed to take. The check in was great because I didn't have to go to the airport and could easily park next to the building.Cons: The signs on the facility at Eugene St. in Palm Springs could be a lot larger. Had to call, and the associate had to come out to the street so I could see the entrance.

2.0 Mediocre5 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly when they told me I could not pick up the rental because according to them the bank I have used for the last 5 years is not a "real bank" to them. Then I tried to add my second driver which I was told was free on the website and they wouldn't let me do that. So I never received my rental car.Cons: Communicate that Chime bank cards are Not accepted so then I know to have a second driver registered who has another bank card.
9.2 Excellent6 Aug 2019
Pros: Loved the suburbanCons: The pickup could’ve been a little more smooth.

Pros: Pick up was hassle free, drop off as well! Car was super clean. Cost of rental and operation stayed with our budget.
9.6 Excellent3 Aug 2020
Pros: Yes thank you for thatCons: To have the car double check as when we picked up the car, it was low tire pressure and we had to put air in it before we reached home from the rental place.
6.4 Good2 Jun 2020
Pros: The vehicle was great.Cons: Grace period to make a change cause sometimes we make mistakes at making the reservation and miss to enter the correct time. I tried calling as soon as I got my email confirmation that I made a mistake on the pick up time, I was screwed.
2.0 Mediocre16 Mar 2020
Pros: Attempted to cancel for full refund due to coronavirus and you/expedia/thrifty wouldn't let me. Shame on you.
2.0 Mediocre18 Feb 2020
Cons: communication. My flight was delayed one hour meaning it landed at 11:20pm. I was concerned that thrifty would be closed by then so I called to confirm that same day. The person who answered said that the counter would be open 30 minutes after the flight lands no matter how late. I arrived at the counter 20 minutes after landing (20 minutes after the arriving at the gate) and sure enough they were closed meaning I had to rent elsewhere. Very poor experience.
10.0 Excellent28 Dec 2019
Pros: The lady who helped me at front desk was friendly and helpful.
10.0 Excellent16 Dec 2019
Pros: The staff at the Hertz counter were very friendly and helpful.Cons: With an 11:00 PM pick up time scheduled It would have been nice to know that the Thrifty office closes at 11:30 PM, but that the Hertz office could help us. Our flight was delayed and we didn’t get to the rental car pick up location until after midnight. The person answering the toll free number didn’t refer us to the Hertz counter but gave us a number to call which was a dead end. Thankfully we went to the Hertz counter for help and they took great care of us.
3.2 Mediocre4 Nov 2019
Pros: Horrible first experience with thrifty. The staff was in a rush and they weren’t being professional.Cons: They didn’t tell me the exact drop off time so I ended up paying a lot more than I had to.

Cons: I had asked for a midsize sedan and they said none were available and gave me an SUV. When I got to the lot there were several sedans out there and people coming out after me were getting in them. Also the gentleman took note of my car number and said he would bring the car up. Which he did not do. After standing in the sun for some time I had to ask another attendant and then walk to the corner of the lot to get the car. They did not have a record of me renting through Kayak and had to call over the supervisor to change the pricing which took up time. Joanna

Won't rent from them again!!!Cons: They had only two reps working and over 50 people waiting in line. It took two hours to get my rental car after getting their and Payless is closed after 10pm so they have it handled by Fox. The reps were rude and there were no cars available. The amount I was charge was not the same as the amount shown on my rental through Kayak and their argument was that it was the taxes. They finally got a manager and although he was able to fix the overcharge but the car they gave me was horrible and not what I had requested. Incredibly disappointed!!!

Car was great, but DO NOT BOOK THE INSURANCE THROUPros: Car was fine (although we had to wait 20 minutes for it to be ready at pickup).Cons: The insurance that was pushed through the Kayak site was a scam. Turns out this is insurance (from Allianz) is completely separate from the insurance that the rental company (Payless) accepts.
2.0 Mediocre6 Feb 2017
Waited hours and gave upCons: We arrived in Ontario right on time, but when we made it to the rental car desk we were told to wait. And hour later (with a crying baby) we were told to expect anywhere from an hour to two hours later, or even more. Thankfully, I had made a second reservation at Alamo. They got us into a car. While all of the rental agencies were backed up, Payless was the longest wait with the least amount of information.

Pros: They dropped me off at another rental car companyCons: Provide the vehicle I requested.

4.4 Okay4 Apr 2019
Cons: The car was dirty inside when I picked it up. On the first day of my rental the oil change light came on. It was also advertised as unlimited miles in 3 different places including my confirmation email. However, I was told I only had 150 miles a day when I picked it up. I had to pay for More miles.

Terrible bad experienceCons: When i did my reservation it said unlimited miles and when i went to pick up the car they told me it was only 185 miles per day so they charged me 20 dls more per day to be unlimited. Didn't like it at all

4.8 Okay28 Apr 2018
Would not want to deal with them again.Pros: The car was in good condition and the shuttle bus arrived pretty fast.Cons: After I made the reservation, I logged in the website to double check all the information was correct but found out the booked dates shown on their website was totally off. Called the customer services and they insisted the reservation would have no problem. Not feeling comfortable with the booking, I requested cancellation but they refused to because I booked it through the third party website, Kayak. I was left with no choice but keeping my fingers crossed. The pick up place was not in the regular car rental area by the airport which they did not specify in the email. I was already at the car rental area then realized they are actually inside a small inn so had to call them whereas the local office number was not in the confirmation email so I had to call the main office of the company then got transferred. There was a tiny working station inside Folk Inn for pickup and drop-off. The staffs were ok but did not greet customers warmly. I had to wait for 20 minutes to talk to them even I already had reservation while the prior customer were having some insurance issue, all due to that they had only one computer working. The company also requires the customer to clean the car themsleves as there is a $100 fine even if you left a piece of paper in the car when returning. I am really amazed that the company is still running with this kind of service.

Needed more employees at the counter No coordination with insurance purchased online - they could not find my policy number which added to the check out time. Car was obviously a smoker's car that they tried to cover up with deodorizer. Wasn't effective, car was unpleasant. After 5 days, they still have not refunded my deposit. Likely will not use this rental company again.

Pros: The rental price was very reasonable.Cons: Through KAYAK I was quoted "Unlimited Miles," however when I arrived to pick up the van, I was told that there was a 375 mi/day limit and that I would be charged $.45 for every additional mile. Apparently, there is a discrepancy between what KAYAK quotes and what AVR quotes - and the customer is responsible for uncovering that discrepancy. The address that I was given by KAYAK to pick-up the vehicle was incorrect... closed due to COVID-19. Luckily, there was someone at that closed location who was able to direct me to the proper address (which was only 2 miles away). The van was clean... sort of. There was a noticeable amount of sand in the carpets from the previous users who, most likely, went to the beach. In light of COVID-19, I was told that all the surfaces were sprayed with Lysol.
2.8 Mediocre30 Jun 2020
Cons: The first van I picked up failed to start after I brought home and packed the van with my luggage. It took me about 30 minutes to reach someone to report the issue. I had to drive back to the location and exchanged out for another van. The overall experience was a bit frustrating.
2.0 Mediocre23 Jun 2020
Pros: Horrible experience will never use AVR.Cons: For starters, I made a reservation and the office was never open. I waited 2 hours and called the number and no one ever answered or anything. Not even an apology or anything. I had to go to another agency and had to pay more because it was a same day reservation. So upset. Never using Kayak again either.
2.0 Mediocre22 Jun 2020
Pros: When we went to pick up our van, no one was on property. My husband called the number provided. When a lady answered she stated they had no vans available and all reservations had been cancelled. She stated everyone was contacted the day before. I can assure you NOONE from any company contacted us to cancel our reservation. This was for our daughters ‘drive thru’ graduation so we could take our family to see her graduate. This company ruined that experience for her and our family. We spent the entire morning scrambling to find another van, ending up spending 400x the money. Our attorney is contacting this company. What a horrible experience. I would NEVER recommend such an unscrupulous business!Cons: The business should have honored their reservations. The corporate office should answer their phones and emails. I’ve yet to receive a response from their corporate office as to an explanation. Do Not Trust this rental company. We were not the only customer standing there.
2.0 Mediocre19 Jun 2020
Pros: Absolutely nothing.Cons: This place was shuttered and in the ghetto and did not answer our many calls previous to and during our pick-up time. It is literally a shell of a rental company and a scam. We were left high and dry on a van rental for a family vacation and had to scramble to figure something else out for ourselves after we spent much time driving out to them and trying to get them to respond. Disappointed and angry!

Pros: Staff was very helpful. I had a dilemma and I needed to pick up the vehicle earlier than scheduled, Erika was able to make this happen. Upon return, Alicia was very personable and professional. I left my gate card in the rental vehicle and when I returned to pick it up she came curbside to give me the card. I was impressed with her all around customer service. In fact I was very impressed with the two ladies courtesy and professionalism in making this an excellent car rental experience. I will certainly use them again.

Top tips for hiring a car in Ontario

  • Like most cities in Canada, Ontario is designed for private vehicles. This means visitors to the city will be much better off renting a car than relying on public transportation to get around. This is especially the case if you plan to visit one of the state or national parks neighboring the city, like San Bernardino National Forest, which is just 56 miles away and would be nearly unreachable without a car at your disposal.
  • If you are like most travelers renting a car, the first step of your journey post-flight is to pick up your hire car. For those landing at Ontario International Airport, you can reach the airport’s hire car center by taking one of the 24/7 shuttle buses departing from outside of the main terminal.
  • The hills and mountains around Ontario are some of the natural highlights of any trip to the city, but what happens when you are on a narrow mountain road, you meet another car, and neither of you can pass by each other? In cases like this, as uncommon as they may be, the vehicle that is facing downhill must yield to the uphill facing driver and back up to make room for the other car. The reason for this is that the downhill-facing car has (at least theoretically) greater control and maneuverability.
  • Ontario, similar to much of California, faces a bit of a daily rush hour during the work week. The morning rush hour can be expected to pick up around 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 8:30 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour lasts from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, the rush hour traffic is actually quite mild, so visitors and commuters alike won’t have much to worry about.

FAQs about hiring a car in Ontario

  • Some car hire companies in Ontario which have updated their car rental health and safety policies due to COVID-19 to make sure vehicles are clean and disinfected include Alamo, Budget and Hertz

  • On average a car hire in Ontario costs £31 per day.

  • Economy (Ford Fiesta or similar) is the most frequently booked car hire type in Ontario.

  • Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car hire companies in Ontario are Alamo (8.6, 224 reviews), Enterprise (7.9, 204 reviews), and Thrifty (7.7, 68 reviews).

  • A Economy car hire in Ontario costs £26 per day, on average.

  • A Full-size car hire in Ontario costs £71 per day, on average.

  • In Ontario, cars are most frequently hired at Budget 3450 East Airport Drive #200 (4 miles from city centre).

  • On average hiring a car in Ontario costs £214 per week (£31 per day).

  • On average a car hire in Ontario costs £919 per month (£31 per day).

  • Truly any size of vehicle is perfectly appropriate for driving in Ontario. The roads are large and wide and the parking is well-sized, so even large trucks and SUVs will have no issues parking. One thing to consider, though, is whether or not you plan on visiting other areas of California after your time in Ontario. If so, a car that is fuel efficient may be worth considering, as petrol is not the cheapest in California.

  • Drivers can expect residential speed limits in Ontario to range from 25 to 35 mph, while outside of the city the speed limit jumps up to 50 mph and even up to 65 mph on rural motorways. On highways and interstates, the speed limit is between 65 and 70 mph.

  • Petrol prices in Ontario at $3 per gallon are a bit higher than the national average. However, for California and for much of the West Coast, they are actually fairly standard examples, seeing as San Diego’s average price per gallon is $3.10 and Seattle’s average is $3.

  • Drivers should have no issues finding immediate streetside parking near the sights in Ontario. Parking is very available and all sizes of vehicles will have no problems finding space to park. There are also a number of parking garages in the more densely packed sections of town.
