Bad customer service
Pros: Good price
Cons: Called in advance if I could have 30 minutes grace period for returning, they said ok. When I arrived, the guy behind the counter gave me the silent treatment for about 5 minutes, then said " you're late " I explained that I called, but didn't matter to him. He says they could charge me for additional day- he was really indignant. Most rental companies will give an hour or so grace, but this guy would have none of it, even after I called ahead.

Pros: Seemed pretty simple to book
Cons: The vehicle - a Nissan Frontier, i booked wasn’t available because they said the online stock of vehicles isn’t always accurate. They left me no choice to but to spend about $15 more on a big Dodge 2500 pickup truck to go biking. The truck is way too big for the purpose I needed and cost of fuel to power the monster is way higher then necessary. My whole point of renting vehicles is because I have other ways to commute to work so I don’t need a car on the day to day. I’m trying to be eco-conscious, so having behemoth of a vehicle for a single person to go ride a mountain bike is ridiculous.

Avoid this location
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Location (Fremont, CA - Solar Way) is not staffed, waited 20-30 minutes on pickup and drop off for an employee to show up. Employees are rude and disrespectful. Got a car full of scratches and dents and a 3/4 full tank. Spare tire was left loose in the trunk. Agent tried charging me an additional fee on drop off, check your bill carefully before you leave.

Was worried
Pros: The facility was beautiful.
Cons: There was not a representative present at drop off. We left the keys and car with the adjoining car repair center. They assured me that everything was ok. and that this happened frequently because the reps had to deliver rental cars to people who had no way of picking them up.

Top tips for renting a car in Fremont

  • As a safe and quiet suburb, Fremont is a great place to be based not only when visiting San Francisco but also the whole of the Bay Area, especially when you have a rental car. But the city is a gem on its own right, so make sure to drive to popular attractions such as the Great Mall of the Bay Area, around 12 miles from the city center. For a natural escapade, head to Muir Woods, only 40 miles away.
  • The two closest airports to Fremont are San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Oakland International Airport (OAK). The Rental Car Center at SJC is located just across from the Terminal B exit. Passengers at Terminal A can take the blue shuttle all the way there. The Rental Car Center at OAK is at the airport’s North Field, and there is a shuttle bus operating between the facility and all the terminals.
  • Fremont’s geography is mainly defined by the hills on the east side and the bay on the west, but most of the city is concentrated on the bay side, which is easier to drive and navigate. Mission Boulevard is one of the main streets, and is one to avoid driving through if you don’t want to face crowds. Fremont is also a good introduction to driving in San Francisco’s famous hills.
  • While San Francisco may really struggle when it comes to traffic congestion, Fremont is more manageable. Still, it’s best to avoid both the morning rush hour (7:30-9 a.m.) and the evening rush hour (3:30-7 p.m.) in order to skip the worst traffic. The I-880 route to both Oakland Airport and San Jose Airport gets pretty crowded during peak hour, with travel times often doubling.
  • Book your rental car in Fremont at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Fremont?

If you’re just driving through Fremont or intend on driving in San Francisco, the best option is renting a small, compact car such as a Smart because it’s easier to manage and park on the city’s narrow streets and steep hills. If you’re going on a road trip along the Californian coast during the summer, try a convertible to take in the scenic views.

What's the speed limit in Fremont?

The speed limit in the city is typically 25 miles per hour, but it is lower around schools and in specific residential areas. The limit on urban highways is set at 55 mph, and on rural highways it ranges between 65 and 70 mph.

How are gas prices in Fremont?

The average gas prices in the city are approximately $3.46 per gallon. You can find lower prices ranging between $2.93 and $3.19 per gallon. Gas is usually cheaper in Fremont than in San Francisco, so if you’re thinking of heading into the city or even going for a longer road trip, opt for filling up the tank in Fremont.

Where are the best places to park in Fremont?

Street parking in San Francisco is scarce and often expensive, so it’s best to leave the car in Fremont and then commute using the BART or Caltrain railway systems. The Fremont Station parking lot offers a daily parking option for a fee of $3. There are also parking garages and lots scattered around Fremont’s center, including the Fremont Hub Shopping Center and Fremont Library Parking.
