This past April, my husband and I decided to venture to San Francisco and Napa for a little getaway and to attend a huge food conference for our blogs. We went on our trip at the beginning of April which was the most awesome weather you could ask for. Being a Southern California resident, the drive to Northern California is 8 hours, but my husband and I decided that we did not want to make the trek, so we decided to fly. There are always some great flight specials offered from Southern California to Northern California for those of you that want to travel to and from those destinations.
Since we flew, we decided it would be best to rent a car because Napa and San Francisco are a good hour to hour and half apart from one another when driving and a bus would not take us to every destination we wanted to visit.
When I travel, I always use the website Kayak to look for travel deals and this time was no different. I simply went to kayak.com, put in my travel dates and all of the different prices from a variety of different companies popped up on my screen. Among the companies that popped up, one company stood out to me, not only because it was the cheapest, but because several of the companies I pulled up seemed to be charging more for cars than for mini vans…very odd…
The rental car company that stood out was Super Cheap Car Rentals. I had never heard of them before and I quickly learned that they were only based out of Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, and Orange County. This sounded great to me! I discovered that the prices offered by Super Cheap Car Rental were about 30% lower than the other companies…so I thought…There must be a catch!
In reading the fine print closely on the site, even though I saw they were 2 miles from the airport, getting a taxi would be cheaper than going with another rental car company…and I did not want a minivan. 🙂
After making my reservation through Super Cheap Car Rental, I received a confirmation email which told me that I could call them for a free ride from the airport upon landing to be taken to the rental car company!! What a great service…
So…we spent 30% less, had a friendly person named Amanda pick us up from the airport that kindly drove us to the rental car place and then proceeded to have us sign a form and she gave us the keys to the car she had just come to pick us up in. Talk about service…no line of families with screaming babies…Just one simple office building with two super friendly attendants, a signature, a set of keys and there was a bonus!! We had forgotten out car chargers and they gave us those for our car as well!! They had a whole drawer of them!! Amanda & Jessica were so hospitable in the San Francisco Super Cheap Car Rental place, so I just want to give a shot out to them!
Upon finishing with the car and having to return it, the process was so chill…there was no specific time we had to have it back on the last day…it was simply any time by midnight and there was a drop box for the keys if the office was closed! How cool!! I will definitely be using Super Cheap Car Rentals again in the future. Our little white Hyundai Excel was definitely worth the fees we were charged and the service was so simple to use! Thank you so much Super Cheap Car Rentals!!! We will be back! Definitely check out Super Cheap Car Rentals if you are visiting San Jose, San Francisco, Orange County or Los Angeles and you need a rental car for a reasonable price that includes everything!

This sounds like an awesome car rental company. Maybe one day they will expand to other areas. I own a Hyundai and I love mine.
They certainly were:) I hope they do get to expand! They are fabulous:) The Hyundai drove great:)
Such a great tip! Thanks for the info! Great to know!!!
Thank you Loretta! You are welcome:)
That’s probably the best experience i had any say about a rental car company..
Yes!! That is why I had to do this post..This was truly a stellar experience:)
Thanks for the info – we don’t make it to California as much as we would like but we will keep them in mind when we do!!
Sounds good! They are a definite must when you do decide to travel here:)
Will have to keep them in mind
Most definitely:) Thanks!
When I travelled a lot, I used to use one of the Big Guys for my car rental. They kept a record of me (including the fact that I refuse to drive a red car). Since my travelling days are behind me now, it’s not a big deal (except the fact that I still refuse to drive a red car). But your information is invaluable to a traveler.
That is awesome that the car rental company treated you so well:) Travelling days behind you? I dont think I will ever be done travelling:) There is so much to see!!
This is good to know!
It’s great that you could bring the rental car back at your convenience. I usually use Hotwire when looking for hotels or cars. We’ve always had a great experience with them.
That is good to know. I used cheapcarrentals.com for Island and I had the worst experience with the company, Dooley/Payless that they set me up:)
This is great information. I plan to be visiting CA more often now that my daughter has moved there.
Awesome!!! It is a great place to go.;-) Tell em I sent u:-)
Hmmm, I’ve never tried Kayak before! I’ll have to try that out for my next trip for sure 🙂 I wonder if that super cheap car rental place has luxury cars? Do you know?
Kayak is the best! I think they did have luxury and all different types of cars. Check out the website for more details:)
Now I know who to call for car rental when I go to Cali. Thanks for sharing!
For sure:) Thanks for the comment!
Great article covering super cheap car rentals. I really liked their great customer service, including them picking us up from the terminal in a private car. This place was a great find.
Agreed!! we will definitely have to use them again:) Great service!!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful moments with us. And great post on the cheap car rental providing such great customer service. Will definitely give a try.
Awesome! So happy to hear you liked my post and that I could assist you with finding a rental car for the best price.:) Tell em Dani’s Decadent Deals sent ya:)
