Airport Car Rental
Get your rental car at San Diego Airport! Then head to the city to explore neighborhoods like Hillcrest, Balboa Park, and hilly seaside La Jolla. And drive to the Mission Valley—this is where the Spanish established their first settlement in California.
In Ocean Beach, enjoy excellent food and music and the laidback atmosphere. It’s the place for water sports too—scuba diving, surfing, kayaking. And make sure you drive to the San Diego Zoo where animals are free to roam large areas similar to their natural habitats. Up for something more active? Check out one of the rock climbing or hiking routes just outside the city.
San Diego’s a great destination, but the surrounding region has even more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can drive up the coast to L.A. and San Francisco, head to Arizona, or cross the Mexican border to go to Tijuana and even farther south. Picking up your car at San Diego Airport and drop it off in a different city is easy. Start planning your adventure now!
San Diego Airport is also known as Lindbergh Field.
