Santa Barbara car rental companies offer everything from economy cars to exotic vehicles. Of course you can rent a car at Santa Barbara Airport. But you'll pay an additional "airport tax" when you do that.

So if you want to save money, pick up your car from a rental location outside the airport.

They'll Even Pick You Up!

Car rental pick-up service is especially helpful when you roll into town on the train. Recently, one of my readers wrote to ask about car rental pick-up from the Goleta Amtrak station.

Since its inception, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has provided a pick-up service. And I found that many other Santa Barbara car rental agencies are happy to provide pick-up service with a little advance notice.

I spoke with representatives from all major car rental agencies in Santa Barbara. While some companies at Santa Barbara Airport (Avis & Budget) were willing to pick you up, one manager of three other providers said that they "weren't supposed to" leave the airport.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz and Thrifty Rent-A-Car icon all have locations outside the airport. Those employees are definitely willing to provide pick-up service from the Goleta Amtrak station.

I bet they'd be just as willing to pick you up from anywhere in town; a car repair shop, your place of business or even at home.

Take advantage of this convenient pick-up service if you ever find yourself stranded. Reserve your Santa Barbara car rental to pick up from a location outside the airport. Then call the local number below to schedule your pick-up.
