Car rental options at Truckee Amtrak on Sat at 3pm

Hi,

We are considering the option of the Zephyr train ride to Lake Tahoe with a car rental for 3nights Vs driving from Mountain View,CA.

I looked at options with Enterprise and Hertz and they seem to be 10miles from the Amtrak station. Enterprise closes at 2pm on a Saturday so that is ruled out.

Are there any car rental companies with offices at the Amtrak station?

we rented from Hertz a few years ago after taking the train and they came and picked us up from the Amtrak stations

thank you belomiser. I read reviews that Hertz makes you go to the airport 10miles away. I will call and verify again.

I have always rented at Hertz at the Truckee Airport (which is about 5-7 minutes away), but I believe they offer some rentals down at the train depot. May be worth a call.

Wendy, while these forums are great ways to pass along your travel experiences, resurrecting threads that are months (years!) old to post the same thing over and over is creeping close to being spam.
