San Jose Car Rentals & Travel Guide

As the oldest Spanish settlement in California, San Jose has a rich and exciting history. The city was founded in 1777 and has since grown into one of the hottest tech incubators in Silicon Valley. Business travelers flock to this area to visit the headquarters of household name brands like eBay, Adobe, and Cisco. However, there's also plenty for tourists to enjoy. With a car rental in San Jose, you can explore the eclectic mixture of historical sites, amusement parks, and beautiful local scenery.

Driving in and around San Jose

Flights to San Jose land at Mineta San Jose International Airport, which is just 2 miles from the city center. If you arrive at Terminal B, you can walk right across Airport Drive to pick up your San Jose car rental from the Rental Car Center. If your flight comes into terminal A, take a blue shuttle bus to reach the Rental Car Center, where you can pick up your car, van, or truck. You can take a trip to Alum Rock Park, a 20-minute drive from downtown San Jose, and admire the exotic natural scenery, small waterfalls, and sulfurous mineral springs. For a different scene, you could check out the Los Gatos neighborhood for some outstanding eateries and antique shops set amid Victorian architecture. If you feel the ocean calling, drive an hour north to San Francisco to visit Golden Gate Bridge and relax by the water.
