Renting a car for the day near Union Square

We are going to SF next weekend and want to rent a car for the day to drive out to Napa/Sonoma and some other sights. Is it best to rent it ahead of time or rent the day of. When looking at rates the best I could find was $65/day (that seems really high). Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It is convention time in SF and supply and demand can change car prices. If you have a corp account or are using coupon codes that would be the best bet. You could try hotwire to see what the lowest rate is and then go with priceline to get the best quote based on the lowest hotwire rate.

You can generally get a lower rate by renting from one of the facilities that are NOT at Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf. The area south of Market Street (SOMA) has many car rental agencies as well as some in the Civic Center area
