KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Thousand Oaks

  • Thousand Oaks car hire offers numerous advantages over alternative transport options. With a car, you can easily explore the beautiful surrounding areas, such as the stunning Santa Monica Mountains or the picturesque beaches along the Pacific Coast Highway. Additionally, having a car grants you the flexibility to visit attractions like the Gardens of the World or the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza on your own schedule. Opt for car hire in Thousand Oaks to have the freedom to explore without relying on public transport schedules.
  • In Thousand Oaks, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the closest major airport. The car hire offices are just a short distance from the terminals. Upon landing at LAX, you can access the car hire desks by following the signs to the Ground Transportation area. From there, take the airport shuttle or walk to the car hire offices nearby. LAX is the primary airport serving this city, so it's recommended for those looking for car hire in Thousand Oaks.
  • When driving in Thousand Oaks, be aware of the city's scenic but winding roads. The city is known for its lush landscapes and hilly terrain, so it's crucial to exercise caution, especially while navigating curves and inclines. Look out for wildlife, such as deer, as they can occasionally cross the roads unexpectedly. Additionally, be mindful of bikers and pedestrians, as Thousand Oaks promotes a pedestrian-friendly environment. Stay alert and follow the road signs.
  • Thousand Oaks experiences peak traffic during typical rush hour times, mainly between 07:00 and 09:00 and between 16:00 and 18:00 on weekdays. During these periods, certain roads, such as the Ventura Freeway (US-101) and Thousand Oaks Boulevard, can become congested. During the rainy season, roads in hilly areas may become slippery, so extra caution is advised. While Thousand Oaks generally enjoys pleasant driving conditions, be mindful of rush hour timings and potential weather hazards.

Pros:

Staff was super friendly. Just was kind of irritated that it jumped 300 something dollars to 730 dollars because of all the fees/"upgrades" that I wasnt sure about because they seem small but they nickel and dime you to death the 200 dollar deposit was ridiculous compared to enterprises 60

Cons:

Fees. enough. I liked the gas and liability fee. But honestly was extremely overpriced.

Cons:

Everything. The customer service was terrible, the car was awful and the whole experience was horrible. So bad in fact, I went to enterprise the same day to rent a car because hertz was a joke. I'll never rent through either hertz or kayak again. Absolutely terrible experience all around.

Friendly staff. - super easy pick up and drop off

Cons:

Tank was just 1/2 full - would have been nice to have full tank to start off our journey.... But that's just a small inconvenience. Car was clean and comfortable. Part of the front right panel was loose upon picking up vehicle - it was noted by staff, but I think it should have been fixed before renting to me. It made a whistle sound driving down the highway....

Pros:

The man that helped me when I checked in was very nice and worked fast.

Cons:

When I came to return my vehicle there were only two employees working and there were about 15 people waiting. I left and came back and still had to wait about 30 minutes and I was given mis information on the gas. Also the car was not a good value I’ve rented cars for a quarter of the price at other rental car companies.

My pickup time was 1pm, I arrived 4 minutes late, they said it was too late because they had already locked up all the keys to the cars. No where on any of my paperwork did it say that they closed at 1pm or that I needed to arrive early. This was on a Saturday and they are closed Sunday, the salesperson told me to come back on Monday. Now I'm charged more than $300 for a car I could not pick up.

Pros:

The price.

Cons:

I paid $13 to take an Uber down to Avis. I had a printed a "premium" vehicle, which is basically a Chevrolet Impala, Chrysler 300 or similar. The representative pulled an Impala up to me. As soon as he opened the door, the strong smell of cigarettes wafted out. It was obvious they had not wet-cleaned the interior since the smoker(s) used the car. I told him the car reeks of smoke, that I would be driving a number of clients around all day, and there was no way I could take this car. He said they had no others of this type. He also tried to convince me that the car didn't smell like smoke. He then kept trying to get me to take a compact SUV. No matter how many times I said I needed and reserved a large vehicle, he kept trying to put me in a small vehicle instead. Ultimately, I agreed to take a mini van. However, he showed me the minivan (I wanted to ensure it was free of smoke). The van was covered with a mud and dirt, and the seats were covered with salt and French fries, like the last people to use it took a trip to the mountains with unruly kids. It also smelled of fast food. He said it would take about 45 minutes to clean out. At this point, I simply left and walked a few blocks over to Enterprise, which had several vehicles available. Unfortunately it also cost me about $140 on top of what I had expected to pay Avis. In addition, Enterprise would have picked me up, so my $13 Uber ride was also a waste. I plan to submit the bill for the difference to Avis for putting me in this position with their incompetence and negligence.
