San Diego Fun Facts

In San Diego, car rental is easy and smart!


Most travelers to San Diego will touch down at San Diego International Airport, located about three miles northwest of the downtown business district and about 15 miles from the Mexican border at Tijuana. San Diego International is a very busy single-runway airport, with around 550 daily arrivals and departures. In addition to domestic flights, the airport serves passengers headed to Canada, Mexico, Japan and the United Kingdom. It's also notable that the nearby Tijuana International Airport offers nonstop flights to Shanghai, China.

At San Diego International, you will find rental car reservation boards near baggage claim in both terminals. Customers can use courtesy phones to call for a free shuttle to the off-airport location of a car rental company. This isn't necessary during peak arrival times, as major rental car providers – including Advantage, Avis, Enterprise and Hertz – keep shuttles waiting outside the terminals. So you may want to check the center traffic aisle at Terminal 1, or the traffic island at the west end of Terminal 2, before calling for your shuttle.

Another great reason to book a cheap rental car is the somewhat unique Southern California terrain. In San Diego, there are around 200 deep canyons separating its mesas, and this creates small opens spaces throughout the hilly city. Residents traditionally built businesses and residential developments atop the mesas, leaving the canyons to nature. As a result, San Diego's canyons create gaps between segments of the town, meaning your car rental – and probably a good mapping service – will be an important decision since it can be a challenge to navigate the beautiful streets and highways.
