KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mammoth Lakes

  • Consider booking car rentals in Mammoth Lakes any time you are in this California’s year-round adventure land. Mammoth Lakes Red Line Bus is the other transport option popular for its cost-effectiveness. Reserving Mammoth Lakes car rentals comes with the advantage of enhanced flexibility and convenience when visiting various parts of town. With your rented car, you have the freedom or deciding your own departure time and the routes to follow. Mammoth Mountains Ski Area is one of the places you may consider visiting with your rented car, which allows you to move around with your personal belongings conveniently.
  • Renting a car upon landing at Mammoth Yosemite Airport (MMH) will allow you to enjoy self–drive from the airport to the city center and other destinations of your choice in Mammoth Lakes. Enterprise, National, and Hertz are the three major car rentals in Mammoth Lakes, with on-site car rental counters at MMH. The counters are inside the terminal building located specifically at 85 Airport Rd, Mammoth Lakes, 93546 9710, CA, California. From the baggage claim area, the clear signpost of each of these car rentals will lead you to their respective counters.
  • You need to remember a few things when driving your car in Mammoth Lakes. Most of the roads in downtown Mammoth Lakes are wide and in good condition, something that could tempt you to speed. You should resist this temptation because the number of cyclists on these roads is always high, especially in the mornings and evenings. Over-speeding puts you at risk of hitting them. If you are driving your car within the central business district, you should remember the high number of pedestrians, many of whom jump into roads without checking oncoming vehicles.
  • Driving your rented car in Mammoth Lakes is quite difficult during the morning and evening rush hours. Like other towns in California, the morning rush hour in Mammoth Lakes starts at around 7 am and ends at around 10 am, while the evening rush hour starts at around 4 pm and ends at around 7 pm. During these periods, most of the roads in the town experience heavy traffic, with the most affected road being Route 395.
  • Book your car hire in Mammoth Lakes at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

On the other hand, if you are traveling solo with less than two pieces of baggage, an economy car will be an ideal option for you.

Outside these zones, you should observe a speed limit of 35 mph unless otherwise indicated. On major highways such as Route 395, you should observe a speed limit of 55 mph, except in some sections with a posted speed limit of 70 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Mammoth Lakes?

    You have several short-term or long-term parking options for your rented car in Mammoth Lakes. The Village at Mammoth lot is popular among drivers in need of overnight parking. The parking lot is located across the street from the Minaret side of the Village at Mammoth. You make the payment for this parking lot through the self-serve kiosks. If you are looking for long-term overnight parking, Mammoth Yosemite Airport is the option. Here, you will pay around $8 per car per night. This price may change slightly, subject to demand.

Pros:

nothing

Cons:

Kayak needs to check to see if they are actually renting car's when you book a car rental. We got a call 1 day before our trip to find out that National was closed at Mammoth Lakes airport and we would have to go to Bishop for a car (44 miles away). We ended up not renting.

Cons:

When I arrived to pick up my "reservation" I was informed that "This was booked on a 3rd party site, and we don't have cars". I don't know if the issue is with Kayak, National, or the staff at that local location, but it ended up costing me $60 to get back from the airport to catch a ride home.

Pros:

The agent at the desk was very helpful. He handled difficult situations well--two parties had no transportation due to misunderstandings on their part.

Cons:

The gas policy--or lack of one. Because there were no papers exchanged, I didn't even think of the gas policy until I was on the road and noted the tank was below half full.

I received a call an hour before taking off to go to Bishop that my reserved car would not be available and they had no other cars to give me. The person who called to tell me said he would be at the airport when I arrived, however he was not there. I had to scramble and find another mode of transportation to get to my destination.

June 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

All locations staff were very helpful and friendly. Every person I dealt with at Hertz was awesome.

Cons:

Both cars were not clean inside... crud in cup holders, not vacuumed well. Exterior not clean... The car I originally rented was a 2015 Nissan Rouge with about 40,000 miles on it. It was fine at first, but as soon as I got on the passes going from California to Washington any speed over 45 the steering would shake... semis were passing me and the drive was very stressful. I tried to exchange the car in Oregon, but there were no rental places open. I made it to Bremerton, Washington by Monday and immediately called the Hertz there. For three days they tried to find me a replacement ca (or so they said) and they finally said they were unable to. I had to leave to head back to Ca and tried to find rental replacements along the way with no success. Finally in Medford the airport was able to replace the car. They were shocked that the hood did not close properly and the car was in such bad shape they thought it should not be in the fleet. The fun didn't end there though. When I got back to Oakhurst, Ca to return the car, their records showed that I had returned the first car but that I had never rented the second car! Still trying to figure out that paperwork debacle. :/
