Looking forward to our 5 week road trip in September.
A few years ago we travelled across the country by train but rented a car for a week in SF.
It was a Ford Focus which was great for the two of us. Pick up and drop off at downtown SF was convenient to our hotel so all went well.
This time we want to have car for the duration of our trip and the plan was to pick up and drop off at SF Intl airport. When comparing rates I have noticed that there appears to be a significant (20%) premium to be paid for this as opposed to collecting and dropping off downtown.
Can the forum provide some advice on this?
Is there somewhere nearby off airport that I can rent from and not pay a premium or maybe a different renter?
What has been your experience?
Many thanks for taking the time.
