  • We had a great experience with Nova Car Hire. It was by chance that we found the website and it had by far the most competitive prices for car rentals. I will absolutely use the website again to book rentals in the future.

About Santa Barbara, California

Santa Barbara is situated on the West Coast of the United States, between the towering Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. With a climate that is frequently referred to as Mediterranean, Santa Barbara is dubbed the American Riviera. With a population of close to 90,000, it is the second most populous city in Santa Barbara County after Santa Maria.

Santa Barbara is a popular tourist resort, but the city also bases much of its commercial activity on services, education, technology, health care, agriculture, manufacturing, and finance. With car rental in Santa Barbara, you can use U.S. Highway 101 to drive the 153km to Los Angeles in the southeast and the 523km to San Francisco in the northwest. If you want to escape the city, there are massive swathes of wilderness areas in the Los Padres National Forest, which lies behind the city, among the Santa Ynez Mountains.
