KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Redding

  • Car rentals in Redding make it easy to avoid public transportation and explore the city’s attractions on your own time, whether you’re heading to the Sundial Bridge or the Turtle Bay Exploration Park. A rental car will allow you to conveniently visit some of the neighboring cities, including towns like Red Bluff and Chico. You can even head to sites that are removed from the city center, like the scenic Bully Choop Mountain, which is about a 1h 30min drive from Redding.
  • If you are interested in booking Redding car rentals, you can pick up your vehicle directly from Redding Municipal Airport. Simply head to the rental car center, which can be found in the airport’s main building near the baggage claim in the arrivals terminal. As the center is on-site, you won’t have to worry about taking a shuttle or taxi to get there. You will find several different companies to choose from, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz.
  • Some neighborhoods in Redding have many small, winding streets that can be confusing to navigate if you are not familiar with the area. To help prevent yourself from getting lost, consider adding a GPS system to car rentals in Redding. Downtown Redding has many pedestrians and cyclists, so always keep your eyes open for them when you are driving in this area.
  • Many of the highways in the area, such as 44 and 299, become busy during rush hour due to residents commuting into and out of the city for work. If you don’t want to find yourself stuck in this congestion, try to avoid driving on these roads between the hours of around 8am to 9:30am and around 5pm to 6pm. It also frequently rains in the city, which can cause slippery roads. If you are driving during a storm, always try to decrease your speed and pay close attention to your surroundings.

FAQs about car hire in Redding

Amazing things: when I discovered I could not get to my destination without 4wd (freak snow storm), I called and was told that I could switch out my current rental for a suitable vehicle at no charge. The attendants at all 3 locations I visited throughout my trip were extremely kind and helpful. Somewhat less amazing- I could not get anyone in a local office on the phone. Luckily the CS team at the call center we’re right in their information about switching out but at the time my only option was to backtrack 2 hours to the closest open location and I was worried that I would get all the way there and no inventory would be available. Not being able to contact the individual Budget locations and actually being disconnected several times trying to get through their automated system was frustrating in a stressful situation. My first car was also a bit dirty but I wasn’t super worried about that, but it did prevent me from giving 5 stars for cleanliness

We weren’t able to rent the car. The guy at the counter was rude and pushy. He said they didn’t take our form of payment(which was a credit card). Also called and said that we couldn’t use the pickup time we asked for cause they closed at the time was asked for. Had to go to another rental and pay almost twice the price

Pros:

Very friendly-went above and beyond. My phone must have fallen out of my purse into the rental. I had no idea, returned the car, got in my sister’s car and we left. The woman working there found it so quickly, somehow knew which car I’d gotten into and she found us to get my phone to me. I didn’t get her name, but her action saved me so much stress and worry. I would not have expected she could find us out there and save the day! Brilliant!

The car wasn't immediately ready when I arrived, and I was displeased with the lack of assurance that the vehicle provided would accomodate five passengers as stated online...it's the only reason I opted for the intermediate at the time I placed the order. Also, no CD Player.

Sneaky added charges of $10-15 not reflected in the initial quote from Kayak. I don't know if this is a Kayak problem or an Avis problem, bit I don't like being given a quote for total charges that then goes up when I drop off the car. Kayak/Avis need to get their sh!t together.

Pros:

The car was clean and lived up to my expectations. I was happy to see I could plug my phone into the car for navigation etc.

Cons:

I reserved the car thinking I would pick it up at the airport. The rental at the airport had no record. When I showed them my receipt they looked on line and found that the car was at the downtown location. I have never been in this area before and didn't realize there were two places. I chose the first one that came up on the website. The woman Avis rep changed it for me but the price was more that originally. When we arrived at the airport we found our flight cancelled and no room for us on the later flight. Another storm was due in the next day so I didn't think things would improve. We were able to get a flight out of Sacramento so I asked the Avis rep about taking the car to Sacramento. Their computers were down so I was told to just go ahead and drive to Sacramento and turn in the car there and everything would be fine. When I turned the car in I had to pay an additional fee that I was not told about before hand.

Pros:

I needed a car for a little more than a month. I got a Hundai Elantra that averaged 38 mpg (compared to my personal Jeep, that's a sipper!). It was comfortable to sit in for many hours a day, had plenty of pep and a steady cruise control. After 4600 miles, I'm very pleased with my rental.

Cons:

The first car the agent brought out was a dingy looking car with a noticeably stained interior. I couldn't bear the thought of living with someone else's orange soda and coffee stains for a month, so I asked for a cleaner car. The agent complied.

Pros:

Personable and fast. Our reserved car was not available so we got a free upgrade! After a 12 hour road trip, we were surprised by how comfortable we still were. No hidden fees. No BS. Just great service! Very affordable! Will rent from again!

Cons:

If your credit card is a debit card linked to your checking, you have to provide additional information and documentation that we weren't made aware of beforehand. However, the quick and courteous staff got everything handled over our cell phone.

Car hire insurance in Redding

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

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

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Redding car hire.
