Needing car hire for 8 days in San Francisco and California for 22 year old driver

    I am going to San Francisco for 2 weeks a week today and i am needing to hire a car for 8 days from the 30th to the 7th april. Going to be driving down the coast and to LA and SD but most places charge extra for younger drivers, $20 to $50 a day on top normal charge.

    The cheapest i have found is $265 for the rental from cheapcarrentals who specialize in younger drivers.

    Anyone else recommend other companies?

    Yeah i have got like $15 a day for some carhire companies but then they chuck on $20/30 a day extra so doesnt work out very cheap in the end.

    $265 is good mate - we tried to do this a few years ago hire a car in LA go to san francisco and vegas but they were charging daft amounts of money for anyone below 25.........we ended up just gettin the greyhound bus from place to place which worked out grand - although they do let absolutely crazy people onto them!!!!!
    Plus i really wasnt keen on driving in LA - its absolutely manic...........................Good luck anyway though!!!!!!!!!

    Try this link there are 3-4 worldwide car hire companies. I just done a quick check on "your car" website on there and a ford focus for the 8 days was £172 and there was loads more car types thats just a for instance.
    Good luck, have a great time…php

    Haven't looked into it in great detail but ]travelsupermarket comes up with results starting from £132 for those dates.
