Car Rental in El Centro, California

The city of El Centro, California is the business and cultural center of Imperial County in the southern tip of the state. As you might have guessed from the name, El Centro also borders Mexico and there are two nearby border crossings where you can head over to the metropolis of Mexicali. One of the things that has made El Centro known across the country is the Algodones Dunes, which spans for more than 45 miles and annually attracts millions of visitors for camping and off-roading. The area also offers some of the most unique landscapes on earth, and in fact has been a popular site for filming movies, and you might even recognize it from some of the scenes in Return of the Jedi from the original Star Wars trilogy. You can’t take your El Centro rental car out on the dunes, but you can find a great deal on California rental cars at RentACarNow.com.

Although you are generally not allowed to bring an El Centro rental car into Mexico, it’s very easy to park at the border crossing and walk across. The city of Mexicali in Mexico is known for being extraordinarily safe and it has always been a popular spot for international visitors. Or if you prefer to stay on the U.S. side of the border, you can head just a few miles south of El Centro to Calexico, which also has some great shopping and dining. You are going to need a car to get around this region of California, and you can get one for less when you make your El Centro car rental reservations at RentACarNow.com.

You basically have two choices if you are going to fly to El Centro, either Mexicali International Airport or the much larger San Diego International Airport. Of course the San Diego Airport has more flight options, but it’s about a two hour drive to El Centro, compared to about 10 minutes from Mexicali. So make sure that you check the San Diego Airport rental car rates and Mexicali Airport rental car prices and then compare those to the cost of renting a car in El Centro.
