It can be a lifelong dream -- wanting to drive a Bentley, maybe crusing PCH with your girlfriends in a red convertible Corvette...No matter what the request, the San Diego office of Midway Car Rental (www.midwaycarrental.com) can fulfill almost any need.
Opened just three years ago this month, the San Diego branch of this leading specialty rental agency is making its mark in the region as a unique boutique operation, offering vehicles not available for rent anywhere else. Beyond fantasy cars like Lamborghinis or Ferraris, Midway Car Rental is the only place in San Diego to rent the new Fiat 500 and Mini Coopers.
"Demand continues to increase each year for our fleet of one-of-a-kind vehicles," said Roger Brazil, regional manager for Midway Car Rental in San Diego. "Despite a recession, we have seen increased profits year over year and at any one time, 85 percent of our fleet is rented," he added.
In addition to exotic nameplates, the Midway Car Rental Fleet offers something many others can't offer. "No vehicle is older than 12 months old; we give our customers only the newest and most cutting-edge choices," added Brazil. The company also houses an assortment of mid-range and fuel-efficient cars such as the VW Jetta, the Toyota Prius and even a Porsche Panamera Hybrid. "About half of our fleet will thrill your wallet with excellent gas mileage and the other half is designed to thrill the pulse -- it's a win-win either way!" he said.
Located just minutes from San Diego International Airport, Midway Car Rental San Diego provides complimentary shuttle service between the rental office and the airport for any client, regardless of vehicle.
One of the most popular types of rental at Midway San Diego is the "Bucket List Vehicle," or a car that someone has always wanted to drive or take for a spin. "We often get someone renting a dream car for a milestone birthday or special occasion -- the grins are always ear to ear whenever they bring the cars back," Brazil said. According to Brazil, Midway clients often also rent "experience" vehicles, like convertible Corvettes for father-son road trips or girls' getaways.
The inventory at Midway Car Rental San Diego is always changing, but a sampling of some of the unique vehicles in stock include:
