Car rental location Oakland Airport

Oakland Airport Guide

The Oakland Airport is currently undergoing and expansion and overhauling. The Terminal Improvement Program is currently expanding the Terminal 2 area of the airport. The improvements to the Terminal are expected to be completed in 2008. While this expansion is set to better the traveller experience, it is not the last expansion on the books for the Oakland Airport. Further expansions are set to make the airport of Oakland even bigger and better with a higher capacity for incoming and outgoing flights, as well as overall passenger numbers.

The roadways of the airport are also a huge part of the overhaul. More than $120 million is being spent to make these roadways more drivable and an easier connection into and out of the Oakland Airport. As of 2004, Airport Drive was expanded to a six lane roadway to deal with the increased traffic to the airport.


Oakland, California was founded in 1852. But, the history of the area travels farther back than the date of the city reveals. Spanish travellers found the city and visited in the 1770's. It was not until 50 years later that their return marks the official beginnings of Oakland. Recognized as one of the nation's most diverse places, Oakland is home to more than 100 languages and dialects. The city proper is now the home to more than 400,000 residents all of whom are happy and prideful to call Oakland home.

Oakland Airport and Oakland city proper are two top destinations in California. From shimmering lakes to the San Francisco Bay shoreline, there is nothing better than visiting this dream land.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
