Location information for California

The southern USA state of California is one of the most popular tourist destinations in this part of the world, and rightly so. The state has a lot to offer, from fantastic weather to vibrant cities and a rich cultural heritage. California's towns and cities are well connected by road, and cheap California car hire is by far the best way to explore.

Many visitors to California are town between exploring the area's natural beauty and interesting attractions. City slickers are drawn to Los Angeles and California, while beach bunnies hop straight to the coastal sands of Venice and Malibu beaches.

Even in the evening, California is still the place to be, with the state's large cities offering plenty of fine dining and opportunities to shake a tale feather in the nightclubs. Lovers of the theatres will also have their pick of plays, and listening to live music is popular here, especially in San Francisco.

Although California is a great place to explore with a car hire, many people like to base themselves in one city. Los Angeles is a good option as there are numerous attractions here such as Sunset strip, Rodeo drive and Hollywood, while San Francisco is also popular.

The town of Fresno is the gateway to Yosemite National Park, and this is the perfect place to explore on a car rental daytrip. There are also a number of other pretty parks to explore by California car hire such as Joshua Tree National Park and Redwood National Park.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is ERentals the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
