National Car Rental in San Diego was a great rental experience. We were in San Diego some time ago and used another rental company and this time we had a much better experience. I love the big car rental center and the service at National Car Rental was just marvelous. The representatives were all professional and made our experience enjoyable and easy. The pick up and drop off was very manageable and easy. The shuttle drivers were very nice and just entertaining.

Had a great experience! Needed to rent a car for a day, and was able to make a last minute car rental here. The process was extremely smooth from beginning to end. Everyone was very friendly and understanding and the overall process was so easy. Would highly recommend this place - they actually have the cars you reserve available. They also have hybrid cars, which is also extremely valuable considering the rising price of gas in California!

From the person on the phone at San Diego when I had a few questions prior to my arrival, to the gentleman who was so kind and helpful when we arrived, it was so unexpectedly wonderful! The vehicle was fantastic. So new and well equipped and the return process could not have been easier. The wonderful man came right up to the vehicle and asked how was. your rental? with a smile and this was at 4:30am! He was so friendly and efficient. I could not say more about how great National Car Rental at San Diego Airport was! I will now move to National for all of my rentals especially at San Diego. Thank you!

I really enjoy my corporate Emerald Club membership. I enjoy picking a car that matches what Im going to be doing at a location. I appreciate how fast Im able to leave the airport - find the car, hop in and go. Every step is as fast as advertised. Lastly, I get great rates and for this reason, I come here and only here. I actually look forward to renting. Once in a while there will be an Emerald Isle that only has somewhat generic cars, but not the end of the world. Theres almost always an interesting / fun option. For my needs, this is a great fit.

Rented a car from the National Team as San Diego Intl. Airport and was extremely impressed, as always! The vehicle was ready-to-go, and spotlessly clean, with the keys inside. I just loaded my luggage, made a quick stop at the checkout gate, and was on my way in less than five minutes. Returning the vehicle was a similar process, and just as fast and my receipt for the rental was in the app and a copy was sent to my email before I had even left the lot. Cant say enough good things about the National Team! If you dont rent from them, you are missing out!

Best rental car experience that we have ever had. We had a couple of minor challenges at pickup - both we immediately and easily handled.We could pick from dozens of cars - which was both convenient and fun.Drop-off couldnt have been faster or smoother.Nathan at pickup was tops, as was Miguel at drop-off.Thanks to the whole National team at SAN!

It’s a bit of a wait to board the bus to the off-site rental car location but once there the process couldn’t have been easier. I picked a car, loaded up and headed out through the check out lane. The attendant was courteous and helpful.The return experience was equally pleasant, dropping the car off at the same remote location. Travelers should allow an extra 20-30 minutes for any rental car at the San Diego location but the bus ride drops you off at the door.

I’ve been an Emerald Club Member at National for a couple years. The San Diego location seemed to be low on the number of cars to choose from but it may also have been simply the time of day I arrived. All in all the car was in good condition, no surprises and the check out / in process went smooth as it should.

Car choices available were suitable. East in/out and staff were courteous. It would help them and customers to have signage as to where the cars for Emerald members to select are parked so we can just go there instead of waiting for staff to finish helping other customers. That would also free up staff to help the customers faster.

Very seamless experience! Went straight to the stalls to pick out a vehicle. Great selection from cars to SUVs and even trucks! I chose a 2021 Nissan SUV which was practically brand new and very clean. Drop off at the SD airport was also a breeze. Will definitely rent again!
