Pacific Car Rental began from two friends' idea to provide affordable car rental services in the Bay Area in 1972. Now a long-successful business, Pacific Car Rental has over 60 cars including mid-sized, compact, SUVs, minivans, and even two convertibles for rent. If you are in need of a GPS system, they are also available. Pacific Car Rental requires only a valid drivers license, a major credit card and valid proof of insurance, however, they do not permit driving out of state. All their cars are available for purchase in addition to renting, and they offer special discounts for foreign travelers.
