Condition of the Tires

The condition of the tires determines the quality of your ride. Tire bursts are a common reason for accidents in the United States. In 2017, more than 700 accidents occurred because of blown-out tires. This is why we at Super Cheap Car Rental ensure that our vehicles' tires are thoroughly inspected before they're handed over to you, to ensure a safe and pleasant journey whether you're cruising down the Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles or touring the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

Make sure to inspect the tire ridges and see if they are too shallow or eroded. Just observing the tire closely too can tell you if it's in good condition or not. If it appears to be worn out, we are more than willing to get it replaced or issue you a different car, with no hidden charges—your safety is our top priority.

Inspect the Electronic Components

Before starting your trip, we also suggest that you inspect the electronic components of the vehicle. Check the headlights, indicators, and the windows—are they working properly? Driving in Los Angeles or San Francisco without fully functional headlights and indicators can end you up with a ticket, compromising your exciting itinerary.

More importantly, you need to ensure that the locks are working correctly. Safe travel is more than just avoiding traffic incidents; it's about protecting your possessions, especially when you’re enjoying sights like LA's Griffith Observatory or SF's Fisherman's Wharf.

Unique Advantages of Super Cheap Car Rental

Choosing Super Cheap Car Rental doesn't only mean you'll be getting an affordable car hire in Los Angeles or San Francisco. Our transparent pricing, with no extra fees for drivers under age 25, and all-inclusive rates with insurance, make us the most practical option for young and international travelers. Unlike some competitors like Enterprise, Hertz, or Avis, we disclose all costs upfront, so your vacation budget remains intact.

Travel Tips for Enjoying LA and SF

Exploring Los Angeles or San Francisco in a rental car offers unparalleled freedom to enjoy all that these cities have to offer. Hit the iconic spots, dive into the culinary scene, and discover hidden gems at your own pace. And while you're at it, ensure you know where to park—both cities can be tricky for newcomers. Always choose safe, well-lit areas and be aware of the parking regulations.

Car Rental vs. Ride-Sharing: The Clear Winner for Explorers

While ride-sharing services might seem convenient, they lack the personal touch and freedom that comes with a rental car from Super Cheap Car Rental. Navigate the cities at your leisure, visit off-the-beaten-path locations, and have a secure place for your belongings without surge pricing surprises.

Maximizing Your Stay with Long-Term Rentals

For those planning an extended visit or a long-term stay in Los Angeles or San Francisco, our long-term rental options provide a sense of stability and routine that ride-sharing can't offer. Keep the same car for the duration of your trip, allowing you to build familiarity with your vehicle, contributing to a safer and more comfortable driving experience.
