Room for Improvement
Pros: The options with respect to cost were great. I liked the availability and flexibility to get a vehicle right away with no hassle.
Cons: No instruction on how to use the car besides starting it. Had to figure out where the fuel cap button was how to idle it with out blinding everyone to take a nap. At drop off the receptionist made it very clear they wanted you off asap. Not even polite when asked about area direstions nor taxi. Dunno I want to use em again.

Nissan Rogue was a nice car
Pros: We drove this car from Sacramento down the coast of California through Death valley to San Diego. Total time in the car was about one month. It was a great car; handled well, easy to park, and held all our luggage for the trip. We did not drop the car off in Phoenix, but rather in San Diego.
Cons: Car was excellent.

Dropoff staff were excellent and fixed a problem
Pros: (First read the other box for the negative experience). When we returned the car at SLC airport, the agent "Ruben T." asked us about our experience with the car. I told him about the tire. He was immediately apologetic and asked "Is there anything I can do to make up for that?" My wife said "Yeah you can refund us the $6.25 we spent at all the air machines filling the tire." Ruben said "I think I can do better than that. How about I give you a $20 discount and an automatic upgrade next time you rent with us?" It didn't feel routine at all. He kept expressing his regret, which led me to believe he genuinely was sorry for the disruption to our vacation. I was impressed and will indeed be renting with Enterprise again. You should give Ruben a raise!
Cons: We rented at Salt Lake City airport, but were staying in Park City for a ski holiday. One of our tires had a slow flat. We had to keep filling it. We went to the Enterprise office in Park City to ask for help. The manager there declined. She said she had too many reservations to help. Instead she suggested that we drive to Burt Brothers - a local tire repair place. When we called the Burt's, they told us it would be an hour-long wait to get the tire fixed. Together with the drive to and from the shop we were looking at losing at least 2 hours on the slopes. Lift tickets are $140 a day, so for the two of us the funky tire was going to cost us at least $80, not to mention the lost ski time. So decided to keep filling the tire instead. It was a real pain. At that point I was resolved never to use Enterprise again.

Good car, but no airport pickup
Pros: The Enterprise staff at the downtown Salt Lake City were very helpful and courteous. The Chevy Suburban that they rented to me was clean, roomy, and well equipped. There was loads of room for a family of 4 with all of our luggage. A Tahoe sized vehicle wasn't available on our arrival, so they upgraded us to the Suburban.
Cons: Enterprise had an airport location at SLC, but this wasn't clearly notated on the description. It was a bit confusing to see the airport counter after getting our bags only to be told at the counter that I had to go downtown to pickup my rental vehicle. Thankfully it was only about a 10 minute ride via Uber.

Layover: rent a car and drive to Park city
Pros: Great use of 6 hours.
Cons: The rental guy told me after I payed for the reservation that they Will call Or text Within an hour for the rental and he did not . I have to be the one going to the rent desk again and asking for it. Not very friendly customer service either. But good enough to enjoy 6 hours in Park City in a ford fiesta.

Cons: When I arrived, the counter was closed. No times were indicated in the booking process. Luckily someone at a different agency had pity on me and helped me get into a car. Unfortunately, I had to pay more. This was a useless reservation and I will probably never book with Payless again.

Hidden Gas Charge
Cons: They automatically charge you for a full tank of gas, letting you know that if you fill up the tank they will take the charge off, but if you arrive at hours when no one is there, they don't take the charge off and one has to go through many gyrations to get the charge off.

Don't bother
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Don't rent from Payless in SLC. I reserved a car for pick up when they said they'd be open but when I got to the counter no one was working. Ended up having to get a rental at the neighbouring counter at four times what I was thought I'd get from Payless just so I could get out of the airport. Complete waste of time and rip off; will never rent from Payless again

Dirty, low maintained car
Pros: Easy going, they were nice.
Cons: Too many stains on the seats, dirt. There were dents and scratches on the frame. The wheel covers were bent. All this could have been caused by a bad customer, but they should have fixed it. It was scary thinking that I could have been charged for those things since I forgot to report them when I got the car.

Great experience, first time renting with Advantage
Pros: The entire experience was great. I was hesitant because the prices were so low and the reviews online were so bad. But we gave them a shot and they were every bit as professional & quality as the full-price Hertz, Avis, etc. The distance from the airport was just fine as well. The shuttle is quick and was waiting for us when we arrived. The driver carried our bags, etc. Top notch all around.

Car was fine - service was lacking
Pros: The price was reasonable which is why I chose this rental. The car was fine.
Cons: Despite 3 calls they never corrected my agreement when my flight was delayed a day. Pick-up instructions not clear, shuttle drivers not very helpful with luggage - on return to airport just dumped our stuff in the roadway in the rain - didn't even help us put it on the curb.. Off-site facility not prepared to deal with more than one person waiting to rent - took a LONG time to get situated with a car. Was asked to inspect for damage in the dark with a flashlight that didn't work. Agent tried to do a hard up-sell on all items (upgrade to SUV, pre-pay gas, insurance, GPS, etc.). Car had no user manual and no instructions given on basics. If I rent again from them at least I know what to expect.

Paid the price for cheaper price
Pros: The pricing was good but found out later why
Cons: Pickup, although I knew was going to be off airport, I figured there would be a shuttle or some type of transportation but there wasn't. Good thing a family member was at the airport to greet us otherwise it would have been an expensive taxi ride...the drop off was equally weird; due to our early departure we had to drop off at a downtown hotel & again arrange our own transport to the airport, which was expensive. In the future I'll probably opt for airport pickup & drop off only

Not up to Hertz standards
Pros: - Decent gas mileage
Cons: - No washer fluid - Front washer fluid pumped approximately 2-3 inches up the windshield and that's all. Ended up purchasing a gallon of fluid for vehicle, and then couldn't use it. - Found someone else's prescription glasses and holder, as well as a gardening shovel in the front passenger's door panel. Couldn't have been cleaned very well. VERY obvious. - At check-in for returning vehicle, no notes were taken on issues that I informed them of. When we went to do walk-thru, guy didn't even verify issue with wipers. Guessing that they just washed it, and sent it back out, as is, instead of fixing.

Unprepared staff, terrible customer service by phone
Pros: The vehicle ran well. While the staff did not have the vehicle I reserved when I arrived, the on-site employee who was visiting from another branch was a very clear and friendly communicator.
Cons: The staff at the airport location did not communicate that we could have gotten a ride to their downtown location for free. After we paid a $40 cab fee to get there, no vehicles were available until about three hours after our pick-up time -- this caused us to miss out on plans we made. Before returning the vehicle, in a phone conversation staff did not inform us we could drop the vehicle off after hours, causing us to miss out on even more plans. My girlfriend unfortunately left her digital camera in the vehicle -- which was completely our fault -- but in phone communications with external customer service staff they were EXTREMELY rude and not helpful. They kept telling us to call a number for the downtown location and it kept sending us right back to them, an infuriating circle, and they did not communicate we might be able to get through to downtown staff if we had waited and tried to call again later.

Cons: Make sure you pay attention to which Hertz you are picking up at, the one off airport site close earlier.

21 Oct 2016
Cons: Overall experience was good. But I feel I was charged more than I expected. I had booked for a compact car for a week from Hertz at South main st, SLC. At the time of online booking I was charged a total of $154.68 (as per receipt) including taxes for a compact car(Nissan versa or similar). But at the time of pick up I was told that I have been charged the base price($126) and car available for compact would be Ford fiesta. On contrary to what was mentioned in receipt, I had to pay more. Moreover I had NO choice of cars to pick from. There was no option left for me but to pay more and get my reservation upgraded and I ended up paying $205 instead. I felt it was not right to charge an amount while booking and come up something another while pick-up. Moreover the cars available weren't washed and we were expected to pick-up an unwashed car. So we had to wait again for it to be washed. My previous experiences with car rentals were always smoother than this and I have always had many options to pick car from. So I wasn't happy this time. Another point to be noted was, at the time of car rental lookout I saw pick-up available at Hertz SLC airport and while reserving/booking the car I wasn't given that option. Instead I had to travel from airport to downtown to pick the car. That added to our inconvenience as well.

Worst car rental experience I've had
Pros: I ended up with an upgraded car.
Cons: Extremely slow check-in. The price quoted online was significantly ($20 per day) cheaper then what the counter said I had to pay. Despite showing them the quoted rate, they would not agree to it. They did not have a car ready in the category I booked. Once they found one that was ready, it was unclean and extremely smoky. It took another hour for them to find a similar sized rental. When I wanted to extend the rental an extra two days, the counter would not let me. Eventually, after being on hold for another 30 mins, I was able to extend the rental. All-in-all I would not use Budget again.

Cons: I assume Budget is cheater. I booked a SUV at SLC by Budget one month age before travel. When I pick up on Step 22, they told me to wait 30 mins for the vehicle clean.

Cons: Having a reservation for a car means nothing. Imagine arriving in Salt Lake for a vacation and being told not only do they not have the SUV we reserved, they have NO CARS.

Cons: The car was dirty inside with dog hair. Didn't even look like they cleaned it. Building was pretty ghetto. Dirty inside and not a very nice environment. Customer service needs some training addressing me as "hey man" and not very professional. Car had damage. Took pictures just in case.

Terrible service
Cons: My flight was delayed arriving into SLC by 4 hours so we did not arrive at the FOX facility until @4pm at which time they told us they cancelled the reservation because we were 3 hours late. They did not offer any help just told me to go back to the airport and try to rent from another carrier.

Almamo not great in salt Lake
Pros: I had made a reservation to have a car ready by 30 minutes after arriving at airport. The car was not ready and we had to wait for over 30 minutes for a car. They upgraded us to a small SUV. While the thought was nice the car smelled horrible due to cigarette smoke.

Pros: Your staff was really great!
Cons: The only thing that made no sense was that our plan landed early by 15 mins and we could NOT get our car till 10am on the DOT. If we checked in any earlier the price went up. So you had several people just waiting on the clock. You really didn't have to make us all wait for 15 minutes and change the price on us. There should be a variance of time for this purpose. Your staff was just standing there looking at us waiting for the clock as well. Just didn't seem productive in any way.

Pros: The car was very nice.
Cons: The Alamo counter, in Salt Lake, was poorly staffed. It took an hour to obtain the rental car. There was no verification of damage to the vehicle prior to releasing the car and upon returning, I was questioned about peripheral damage to the car which was obviously there prior to my rental period. I have rented from Alamo many, many times, and have never received such poor customer service.

Am I the only one who got great service?
Pros: I was so worried about this location, based on the reviews, that I had a backup car rental and plane reservation. I needed a one way from SLC to Cody WY. Thrifty was 1/3 the price of anyone else. Our flight was to SLC was delayed 5 1/2 hours and they were out of full size sedans so they gave us a nearly new (3,000 miles) Toyota Sienna van, which was an excellent vehicle, for the same price. Yeah, it could have been a tad cleaner on the inside, every cup holder had some sugary drink goo on it but other than that it was very clean. The wait at the counter wasn't any longer than usual and the two clerks were working as quickly as they could and dealing with one unpleasant fellow, but I thought they did a good job of trying to appease this jerk and get to us. The van got outstanding mileage, it was a way better touring vehicle than a sedan, the drop off at Cody was at 5:45 a.m. before the counter opened. I just got the bill and the charges were exactly as quoted.

Didn't get to rent the car
Cons: I don't carry a credit card. We usually pay cash for everything or use the Visa association of our debit card. I booked a car rental with Dollar in Salt LakeCity for business but they would not rent me the car because I lacked a major credit card. The man behind the counter asked if I would agree to a $300 deposit and a credit check, which I did, and despite my excellent credit score and plenty of money in the bank account, I was declined- no reason was given- just declined!. I ended up having to rent with Budget the next counter over, but for much more money because of the short notice. Never again will I book with Dollar!

Dredful
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I had a deal written up for a standard car at a price of 330.00 for 11 days. I figured I got very lucky. When I got off my plane and went to pick up the car the company said since I do not have a credit card they had to double that price. I decided I needed the car and so I paid the 750.00 they required. After I paid that and when the lady went to the back to collect my keys she came back out and decided I needed to pay another 300 dollars for the car as insurance because my liability is not good enough. All in all I never even got the car and ended up having to stay at the airport for a night until I could have a friend come pick me up the next morning. It took two weeks for them to return my 750 dollars to me.

The only directions for drop off lead you to airport and they are about 2 miles away from airport. Very confusing and took us a lot of extra time and stress to actually find their facility. Turns out because they are called "advantage" and "Ez rent a car" our google maps can't handle such confusion

Insurance was a not helpful at all!
Cons: After only having the car for 3 hours, I returned it and the worker claimed a "significant" dent in the passenger door. It was in no realm significant, and I don't even believe they will actually get any work done. While I was not there for the incident, it was probably just a door hit. However, I purchased insurance off of Kayak and thought I was covered. The EZ Rent-A-Car worker then informed me that they do not work with 3rd party insurers and that they would be sending me the bill and I would have to file the claim. This is ridiculous! Also, they did an absolutely horrible job recording my correct billing address. Severely horrible experience. If Kayak does business with other car rentals they should only offer the businesses insurance so that the renter doesn't have to get the runaround when damage occurs.

Pros: We were not given a chance to use them.
Cons: Our flight arrived at 1:15AM and Firefly's hours were until 2:00 AM. They decided to close early and left many families stranded at the airport. We ended up using Budget and paying more because we did not have a reservation. When we called Firefly, the number did not lead to the SLC location and the person kept telling us on the phone that they should be there and that they were on a break. We waited more than 10 minutes. Budget told us they left for the day/eve. Bad service. Don't use them unless you're sure they will be open.

Top tips for renting a car in Salt Lake City

  • Planning on picking up a hire car after landing at Salt Lake City International Airport? Getting to the hire car center is simple; just exit the main terminal and head to the parking garage across from it -- you will find the hire car counters on the ground floor.
  • Visitors to Salt Lake City will rejoice to hear that Salt Lake City does not suffer from severe rush hour as is so typical in other cities. However, while congestion may not be on the same level as the likes of New York City or Dallas, traffic does still slow from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. In particular, I-15 can get backed up during the peak of rush hour.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in Salt Lake City is that the whole city becomes readily accessible. For example, perhaps you would like to catch a Utah Jazz game at Vivint Smart Home Arena. You could take public transportation to the arena, but you will find that a car is a much more convenient way of getting there, especially when you take getting back home after the game into consideration.
  • Utah is an absolute utopia for winter sports, thanks to its world-class snow. However, its snow is both a blessing and a curse for visitors to Utah, as many of them may not be used to driving on snowy or icy roads. Some tips for driving in the snow include: don’t power up hills, avoid stopping on hills, drive slowly, and keep a safe distance from the cars in front of you.
  • Book your rental car in Salt Lake City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
