car rentals near amtrak

We are planning a few days in San Diego and then AMTRAK to Anaheim. Can anyone suggest a car rental agency close to the AMTRAK station so we can drop off a car and get to the train with a short walk?

There is no short walk from a car rental lot to the Amtrak station. But most all rental agencies are within a 5 to 10 minute taxi ride (= $5 to $10) to the train station. Book with the car rental agency (near the airport) that offers you the best deal, then use some of those savings for a taxi to the station. With a little bit of planning you can arrange for a taxi to pick you up at the car rental drop-off location.

The AMTRAK station has a bank of phones direct to car rentals which sends a shuttle to pick you up and drop you off when you return the car. Should be easy to make the transportation transition as MANY travelers have the same need.

There is an AVIS on Cedar st. and Kettner Blv. it is only only 3 short blocks from the Amtrack station. You can ask for Bob he is the franchise owner. You can call him 9am to 5pm 7 days a week at 619-231-7137. This AVIS also has van shuttle service to nearby destinations.

Thanks everyone. The Avis on Kettner sounds like the best if they will pick us up at our hotel.
