Top tips for hiring a car at Bakersfield Meadows Field airport

  • On your next flight to Kern County, California, consider booking a car rental at Meadows Field Airport (BFL), so you can explore the region on your own terms. With a rented automobile, you get in the driver's seat immediately after deboarding the aircraft. Unlike shuttles that are relatively far from BFL premises, rental cars are parked on site. Grab your keys at one of the three parking lots reserved for car rental companies.
  • From Highway 99, exit at the 7th Standard Road and turn east. Keep walking for about 1.5 miles, following the arrivals signs. On the right side are the baggage claim area and the pick-up counters where to grab the keys. The car lot is about 200 feet from the baggage claim area. Provide your driver's license and take the pre-printed documents with all the terms and conditions. The return location is at the same address for pick-up (3701 Wings Way, Bakersfield, CA 93308). Of course, you can’t always return the car during working hours. For after-hours return, park and lock the vehicle, then place the keys and the contract form in the drop box. When returning the car after midnight, you can count on security guards at the rental center to open the door for you. Plus, there is always a key person or manager to escort you to the car park.
  • Bakersfield has its charms and fun things to do. And you're probably wondering if your car rental at Meadows Field Airport offers unlimited mileage. It is possible to book a car with unlimited mileage through KAYAK. After all, you want to see all your desired attractions without restrictions regarding the distance you can cover. Check out the best deals for mileage and book as early as possible to start making plans for your Bakersfield getaway.
  • A rental company usually requires renters to present credit cards or debit cards with sufficient funds to cover a security deposit and any applicable charge not covered in the prepaid voucher. Ensure you have a valid international credit card but avoid third-party cards because not all rental agencies accept such. Whether your mode of payment is approved or not is entirely up to the rental supplier.
  • Book your car hire at Bakersfield Meadows Field airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Bakersfield Meadows Field airport

  • Can another person drive my car rental at Meadows Field Airport?

    Depending on the rental agreement, you may be allowed to have an additional driver. This means your loved one can drive the rented vehicle if they meet the required standards. First, confirm if there's an additional fee for this option at the counter. Each driver must have an original driver's license. An international driver's permit is recommended if the DL is not in the languages used by Meadows Field Airport car rental companies. The other important document for all drivers is an official identity card or passport.

  • What amenities are available in the car rental center at Bakersfield Meadows Field Airport?

    Since the rental counters are within the premises of BFL Airport, the on-site cafes and bars also cater to car renters. Order some take-away or sit down to grab something at the eateries. Before riding in a rental vehicle, you are free to attend to your pet's needs at the pet comfort station near the car park. Remember to buy yourself or a loved one some goodies at a gift shop next to the car rental center.

  • Do you need insurance before renting a car at Meadows Field Airport?

    Personal safety is crucial, and so is insurance coverage. However, car rental providers are not obligated to evaluate your existing coverage and its adequacy. So, before you rent a car at BFL Airport, inquire from your insurance provider whether you are covered while riding on a rental vehicle. If you are afraid your existing policy doesn't cover your travel through California, consider buying extra coverage through the car supplier. Beware of restrictions on large vehicles.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Bakersfield Meadows Field airport?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Bakersfield Meadows Field airport to off-airport locations include Avis, Budget, Hertz, National, and Rent-A-Wreck.

Pros:

Bad service most unreliable in honoring reservations. On the evening of 5/22/2021 at approximately 1 pm , I was informed, the vehicle would not be available for pick up on 5/22/2021 @ 8 pm , instead I could pick it up on the following day @ 7 am. My reservation was for a pick up truck, they were offering me a mid sized SUV which would not serve my purpose. It caused me delay and inconvenience and additional expenses renting from another company for a pick up truck at short notice.

Cons:

Compensation for dishonor of reservation and additional expenses

Pros:

My son lives in Ridgecrest, two hours away. Traveling by yourself is stressful enough, so I like the convenience that Enterprise is right in the terminal. As a women driving by myself, it gives me such peace of mind that I will arrive safely. The cars have always been clean, new and ran perfectly. I will continue to use them and Kayak for my travel needs.

Pros:

Cons:

They never told me to bring a credit card to pay for the rental. I have a debit/ master card and I couldn’t pay for the rental with this card. I had to drive 25 minutes back to may house to get my credit card. This was very inconvenient. All they need to state on the agreement or reservation would be “only credit cards accepted for rentals” “ no debit/ credit cards accepted”. No where did it state this.

Alberto was very friendly and punctual. I had left my car keys somewhere in the car and noticed it when I got back home. I got a call from Priceless they found my keys and will mail them the morning after. I have no words to express my gratitude. I have a gold medal that belonged to my Dad attached to the keys and it is the only thing I keep from him.

Sep 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car it self was comfortable (lowered score because the inside was dirty) for a smaller car and got great gas mileage.

Cons:

1. Fine print regarding company rules for National Car rental would not download for us to read before we went to pick up car, so we did not expect the $100 hold on a major credit card/not debit, customer service at the pick up location was to put it mildly unhelpful, sarcastic, smug, and didn't know when to stop repeating himself, even after I put my hand up and said "STOP". "I get what your saying, I would just like you to be empathic to my frustration." At which point he smiles and then finishes repeating his statement to me. 2. Husband gets into car and being the professional he is, found the car to be dirty. Takes it to a car wash so he can be comfortable in it, isn't this something that is suppose to be done before he even gets into the car? 3. While driving the car he discovers there is no windshield wiper fluid, so he can not remove any bugs that may be blocking his vision. Again isn't this supposed to be filled before he gets the car? I sure hope all the other fluids are ok. 4. Then a warning light flashed "Take to dealer immediately!" WAIT WHAT? My husband had been driving it for less than 20 minutes, on his way to a job interview, he can't call and talk with anyone the Bluetooth wont transfer any sound through the speakers, he's in the middle of now ware by now, he can't pull off or turn around, so he call's me to have me call and to find out if he needs to do anything. After being on hold for over 10 minutes I get through to the roadside customer claims office. I tell her I am not in the car, the closet town is about 100 miles away, the above info, and then she proceeds to ask me a few question, "where are you at now?" I'm at home, I'm not in the car, my husband is. "Ok mam, where is the car?" On the highway in the middle of nowhere (does nobody at this company listen when you are talking with them?) "Ok mam ,lets see if I can help you"...ask a few more questions I had already given her the answer to, finally she states she can't help me she needs to talk with my husband since he's the one driving the car....at this point I am dumbfounded, he can't pull off anywhere safe to call you no exits and the Bluetooth isn't working....By this time the light has flashed "maintenance required", so my husband is no longer worried about the engine exploding just irritated as this is poor vehicle maintenance, a pet peeve of his. 5. Returning the car, my husband is delighted to see the same customer service rep as before (I am so making that up), the rep has the same attitude, makes my husband walk back out to the car to write the miles down (unlimited miles, we don't have to do that with Enterprise they'll do it for you), smugly says "I will have my guys do a better job at looking over the car before they go out with customers next time." Uh ok guy you do that but we will not be repeat customers with this company.
