Top tips for renting a car in Fresno

  • Fresno Yosemite International Airport is centrally located between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It is the most popular airport for tourists looking to visit Kings Canyon, Sequoia, or Yosemite Park. During your stay, you can rent a car from one of the agencies located at the airport. Choose from a variety of companies including Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz. Book in advance and walk just a short distance to pick up your car in the north terminal.
  • There are many driving routes and byways with breathtaking views of the lake and mountain ranges. You’ll want a hire car to help you can take advantage of all of its natural scenery. On your trip you’ll also want to drive to Paso Robles or the Sierra Foothills region for wine tastings and vineyard tours.
  • While driving in the mountains, be sure to keep your petrol tank full, as it might be miles in between petrol stations. Additionally, the roads in the mountains can be quite narrow, so be careful to stay in your lane. It’s also a good idea to secure an old-fashioned paper map, as your GPS system will not work as well in remote areas.
  • Commuting times can be delayed during rush hour in Fresno. This is especially true on interstate highways like Highway 168 and 99. This usually lasts from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays. Check for traffic updates on abc30.com before leaving your hotel.
  • Book your rental car in Fresno at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
