  • There is a likelihood that your visit to Elk Grove, California, might coincide with a major event or festival. As such, it won’t be a surprise to find some roads and streets closed as you move around in cheap car rentals in Elk Grove. Due to these events, the authorities and organizers might close specific roads and results, slowing down traffic flow. If you are here in the last week of April, you will find Elk Grove Festival of the Arts underway at the Old Town Plaza along Railroad Street. The city celebrates the Sacramento Water Festival at Discovery Park in November, while Flannels and Flapjacks is held at the Elk Grove Park Pavillion.
  • When arriving at Sacramento International Airport, you can visit the car rental desks in the car rental terminal. A free shuttle is available on the ground floor.

The busiest roads during rush hour are Florin Road, Mack Road, Bradshaw Road and Tribute Road.  If you need to get somewhere quickly, leave before rush hour to avoid highway delays. If rush hour finds you on the road, consider using Highway 99, which operates at the maximum speed limit during rush hours.

The windshield wipers were so bad that it was a significant safety hazard. I was caught in a rainstorm on 12/23/21 going over the grapevine in CA and it was so dangerous I had to pull over several times. The windshield was like looking through two or three layers of wet plastic wrap. I couldn't find a store open, otherwise I would have purchased replacement blades myself. I was scared to death to drive this van. When I called on 12/26 to complain, the manager of the store told me (verbatim)! "This was the first big rainstorm of the year and we have no way of testing or knowing if the windshield wipers work or not." I swear, that is exactly what she said. When I told her how frightening it was, she even disclosed that SHE rented a car from her location and had to purchase wiper blades for the vehicle.They offered me a discount on my next rental. No thank you! I'm not dumb enough to ever want to rent from these jokers again. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Pros:

Picking up the car went as usual, and was pretty quick. Benjamin made it pretty easy.

Cons:

There was only one agent, so there was a bit of a wait in returning the car. This process could be improved, especially since I was heading to the airport next to catch my flight.

Had to pick up at airport, my driver had to pay for parking and took us a while to locate Avis. Very high price of added insurance .. All vehicles should come with standard navigation, should not be an upgrade. Difficult using phone navigation as it was hard trying to drive and read small guide thru phone as it had no sound when plugged in thru the USB port and no where to place phone without it falling, had to place on lap which is a dangerous option.

Booked for SMF airport and your system relocated my pick up elsewhere in Sacramento and had the return back to Sac rather than Oakland. Disaster won’t be using your service again. Took me 3 hrs to get another car and on the road AND paid $122 per day instead of 70. 💩 phew

Cons:

Kayak quoted me around $400 to rent a car for the specified period of time. When I arrived at the Enterprise location, they told me that the cheapest option they had available was going to cost around $900 (including insurance). I had no choice because of the situation I was in, but I was incredibly disappointed that Kayak's quote was so far off. If I had known it would have cost that much, I absolutely would not have rented from this location. I will probably not be using Kayak anymore.

The fact that online I ordered a compact car, but when I got to the store location they said I ordered a sub compact car. They then proceeded to tell me I ordered the car from a 3rd party site and they don't support that. So they refused to accommodate me or support what I ordered, upgrade or anything.... very disappointing. I'd like my money back!!

Cons:

Pick up was kind of a joke. The car wasn't ready for a few minutes, and then the lady led us through a back room that was so disgustingly dirty, I would have been ashamed, and out the back of the store. The guy was still vacuuming it and there was still a carseat in the back. Then he had to re-vacuum it. They should have cleaned it and then drove it to the front where we inspect it and drive off. But, they did the same thing to the customer before us. We also dropped the car off about 8 hours early. We only had the car for about 10 hours, but the price wasn't any different. That wasn't surprising, but disappointing.
