Exploring San Diego by car is the most convenient way of getting around to all corners of the region. The freeway system is easy to navigate and the traffic is manageable other than typical work-day rush hour.
If you’re looking to rent a car while in San Diego, the centrally-located airport is served by all major car rental agencies, and reservation boards with courtesy phones are located near the baggage claim areas of Terminals 1 and 2. Shuttles regularly circle in and out of the airport to car rental outposts spotted near and around the airport, many of them on Harbor Drive and near the Commuter Terminal.
Many of the car rental companies also provide convenient pick-up services at many of the San Diego hotels. Just be sure to make reservations and arrangements ahead of time. Many hotel concierge services can also offer these services, so check with your hotel on what they can provide for you.
