Upon the return of your car, carefully check that the total payment amount (invoice) is computed according to the original rental conditions.

In general, the most expensive parking is located in the central part of cities. The cost of one hour here will vary from US$5 to US$15. All payments are made at the parking lot exit by using a special machine. The cost of an hour of parking away from the central part of a city can be about US$1.
Some roads are also equipped with parking spaces. You can easily identify them by the presence of special slots. After parking a car, you should put the right amount of coins in the slot and start the timer, it will start the countdown backwards. Many cars leave parking spaces before their time runs out, leaving plenty of time for other drivers.
Parking should be done very carefully. Do not cross boundary lines. There are large fines in some cities even for a careless parking. Standing on a boundary line is also considered a violation of traffic rules.

The city of San Diego features warm and bright sunny weather almost all the year round. Beach recreation fans should visit the destination within a period from July to October which is considered to be the most favorable season for sun bathing and on water entertainments. It should be noted that in the heat of the tourist season the coastal water is warm enough even for the youngest tourists to enjoy endless bathing.

A system of public transport is represented with the San Diego Trolley speed trams which are the fastest and easiest way to get to any part of the city. Tourists are recommended to avoid city cruising during rush hours as the trams are overcrowded and chances are to get jammed.

To rent a car one will need a standard set of documents. Tourists having less than a year of driving experience may be denied in service rendering.

Tourists should be careful during San Diego vacation and should keep to the basic rules of safety. One should avoid alone exploration of remote areas of the city late at night and should not keep as well substantial sums of cash and valuables by oneself.
