Rent a car in San Francisco. No problem with Drivestory.

San Francisco is popularly called everyone’s favorite city. The statement originates from the many offers that are suitable for most people. Everything from business travelers who are visiting Silicon Valley, to tourists who want to experience the great cultural life, such as the Golden Gate Bridge. Just throw a stone from the island, and you will be located at the popular Alcatraz Island, which houses many years of gloomy history. If you want to visit other states in the United States, it is easy to move, thanks to the well-developed road network. For example, a drive to Los Angeles takes no more than a couple of hours.

Are you planning to visit San Francisco? Renting a car is the easiest way to get around. You will not only decide yourself which road to take and where to drive, but you will also avoid old cabs, taxi drivers in varying moods and constantly counting your costs. If you’ve not been to San Francisco before, driving around on your own can be overwhelming. There are not only different traffic rules to deal with: there is also a completely different road system and rules for transportations than in other countries. Renting a car can seem like a complicated process, but car rental companies know these challenges in detail, making the whole process simple.

Have you never been driving in San Francisco?

For those of you who never have driven a car in San Francisco, Drivestory has a couple of great tips for you when it comes to driving in major cities. It is usually quite easy to drive a car abroad if you follow the rules: stay on the right side, and drive past other cars on the opposite side. Some countries may drive on the opposite side of what you are used to. When renting a car, it is important to stay on the right side of the road. For example, if you want to make a turn, you generally have to signal five seconds before turning, so that you create predictability for other cars.

Sometimes you can choose, but it depends. Some car models are guaranteed, which means that you either will get the model you wanted, or a newer and better version of a similar car.

The car models listed are for guidance only. If you want an upgrade, order a car through our service and call the car company afterwards.
