10.0 Excellent4 Jan 2021
Pros: Drop off and pick up was super easy. The car was brand new, clean, and had every feature I wanted.Cons: Would love to be able to communicate with customer support over the phone but instead you can only speak with a robot. Good luck getting to speak with anyone if you have questions or issues.
3.6 Mediocre19 Nov 2020
Pros: The pickup/drop off location person (Marc) was very nice and did what he could to help but his hands were tied by the company limiting what he was able to do.Cons: The first car we got had mechanical issues and we had to return it 10 minutes after leaving the shop. The second vehicle we got had major mechanical issues. We had to drive 30 minutes back to the shop. The third vehicle we got was a sedan not an SUV which is what we requested when making the reservation. I have lodged a complaint with customer service and have asked for a full credit. We spent a total of 4.5 hours going back and forth trying to get into a safe, working vehicle. We lost an entire day of travel and did not end up with an SUV which was challenging for some of the places we visited. We were not able to go to certain places in the sedan because those locations required four wheel drive to access. Overall it was not a good experience. A car rental company of this caliber should have properly working and safe vehicles for their customers. The individual locations should be able to offer more customer service and better solutions for their clients. Sixt is over-priced for what they claim to offer and I hope that customer service will recognized the failures. The vehicles were unsafe which put us at risk and our vacation plans were significantly altered due to not having four whell drive. Very disappointing.
10.0 Excellent2 Aug 2020
Pros: Yes and Yes....Cons: Didn't know I needed to put a $200 deposit down until right before I was leaving. Other than that, all was GREAT!
7.6 Good23 Jul 2020
Pros: Staff was VERY goodCons: My confirmation and reservation clearly stated unlimited mileage but when I arrived the counter said it absolutely was not and informed me that i could not leave the State
2.0 Mediocre13 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff was so rude when we went to pick it up. I will never use the company again.Cons: Any and all restrictions need to be disclosed on the website at booking. Especially if there are geographical restrictions.
2.0 Mediocre7 Jul 2020
Pros: NothingCons: The staff was rude and not helpful at all. We booked the van to travel from Arizona to Idaho for a family reunion which we told them when we picked it up. After we got the van and were on our way, we read through the contract which noted that Idaho was out of the regional area that the vehicle was allowed to travel in. We tried and tried to get a hold of somebody at Sixt. No one answered the phone, and we waited on hold for over an hour. We emailed them and did not get any response for more than 24 hours. And the response did not at all address our concerns. We ended up leaving the van at a friends house and taking a different vehicle on up to Idaho for our reunion. It was a huge inconvenience! I will never, ever rent from Sixt again!

10.0 Excellent15 May 2020
Pros: Bay and Katherine at the Scottsdale Sixt location were extremely friendly and helpful plus had taken on many extra duties due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this their service was still excellent and the office and car were thoroughly clean and sanitised.Cons: The charge to return to a different location should be waived at this time as travel plans are heavily affected.

4.4 Okay14 Jun 2020
Cons: Vehicle originally rented was not available and the replacement option was not luxury....the replacement (van )took over 1.5 hours to get ready. The inside of the van was filthy dirty and I had to personally disinfect it before our trip. The salesman offered an 8 % discount which was not worth switching vehicle types. With covid going on, I assumed the cleaning process would be more through to prevent the spread.

2.0 Mediocre2 Oct 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Everything. I did have a good experience with Hertz at the Mesa airport. They took care of the problem. Very helpful and friendly.
2.0 Mediocre29 Sep 2020
Pros: Nothing. Overall terrible experienceCons: Hertz had apparently put me on a do-not-rent list but accepted my reservation. Once getting to pick up the car the manager had no power to do anything and told me that I need to call the do-not-rent team to figure out the issue - after spending over an hour on hold I gave up. Turns out I had rented from Hertz when my car was in the body shop years earlier from getting rear ended in an accident. The body shop didn't match the paint properly so offered to rent me a car while they re-did the work. The car was rented in my name, but they were supposed to pay for it - apparently they never did and that's what threw me on the do-not-rent list. Why they allowed me to make a reservation and waste my time is beyond me. It ended up ruining the first day of my vacation as this whole debacle end to end cost about 3 hours of time. And like many disgruntled reviewers say - I will never rent from Hertz again.
2.0 Mediocre16 Sep 2020
Pros: They said they don't have car for me. They were extremely unfriendly and not appreciating that I had to cancel my trip even that I had a confirmed reservations, I spent almost 3 hours calling various Hertz location and NO ONE cared a bit. It is the worst company I ever rented from. NO MORE.Cons: find a different more reliable company and gret rid of Hertz
2.0 Mediocre15 Sep 2020
Cons: They had no cars for me. Could not tell me when they would have one. I waited 45 minutes then finally gave up. They didn't even offer to find me a car at a different location. I was headed out of town and this nearly ruined the trip. Had to scramble at the last minute to find alternative transport. Also, I asked them to cancel my reservation but the charge was still on my credit card. I'm still trying to get that taken off.
2.0 Mediocre4 Sep 2020
Cons: I made a successful reservation but when we arrived, they were out of cars. Totally unacceptable. Will never use Kayak or Hertz again.

Top tips for renting a car in Scottsdale

  • Whether you’re bouncing between the many golf courses Scottsdale has to offer, venturing into Phoenix situated southwest of the city, or exploring Tonto National Forest, by renting a car you can do all of the above conveniently within your own timeframe. The area is best explored with a car, so enjoy the many great things Scottsdale has to offer by renting a car.
  • Travelers who arrive in Scottsdale at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport will be pleased to know that there are several hire car agencies on the grounds. Start your journey free of stress by renting a car directly at the airport and be in Scottsdale in about twenty minutes via the N Scottsdale Road. The hire car center is located in its own building and there is a shuttle operating between the terminals and the hire center. The bus stops are outside the terminals, past the baggage claim area.
  • Especially during summer, monsoons can occur regularly in Scottsdale and the whole of Arizona, and they bring heavy rain showers, strong winds, and dust storms – all of which can severely impair visibility. Should you drive into such a monsoon, try to find a safe place to park the car and wait until it has abated. Also do not drive into flooded areas, usually marked with a warning sign, or the car can lose traction and you will need to be towed out of the flooded area.
  • Rush hours in Scottsdale occur at 6-9 am and 5-7 pm, where traffic, specifically between Scottsdale and Phoenix, can increase dramatically. Try to avoid driving through the city during these times, and especially when heading to the airport, allow plenty of extra time (at least two hours), so you don’t miss your flight.
  • Book your rental car in Scottsdale at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car in Scottsdale

  • Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car rental companies in Scottsdale are Enterprise (8.3, 88 reviews), Hertz (7.5, 113 reviews), and Dollar (6.7, 55 reviews).

  • The average price of fuel in Scottsdale is $1.37 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between $16 and $22, depending on the car size.

  • Car hire companies onsite at Sky Harbor Intl airport include Alamo and National.

  • Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Sky Harbor Intl airport to off-airport locations include Alamo and National.

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • It is always easier to maneuver through an unknown city with a smaller car instead of a large and bulky one. If possible, rent a compact car to be able to navigate through traffic, find parking, and also pay a lower weekly rate in most cases. When planning to drive to the national forest or explore the natural surroundings, opt for a 4-wheel-drive car for the best traction.

  • It is important to always check posted speed limit signs and follow their listed speed limit. Generally, speed limits are 25 mph in residential areas, 65 mph on divided rural highways, and up to 75 mph on freeways and interstates. On the I-10 into Phoenix there is a Safety Corridor, which are lanes where accidents are more likely to occur and law enforcement is very strict (you could already get fined for going one or two miles over the speed limit).

  • The average price for a gallon of petrol in Scottsdale lies at approximately $2.70, but there are cheaper petrol stations like Costco or Mobil which can be up to $0.10 less per gallon. Travelers who are planning trips out of Scottsdale towards the many national and regional parks should refill the tank beforehand.

  • There are free parking opportunities available in Scottsdale, for example in the 1st Ave Lot or Pepperwood Lot, but keep in mind that parking is restricted to two hours. In the Old Town, there are also plenty of garages and on-street parking spots available, but during the day on-street parking may be hard to find, so opting for the 3rd Ave parking garage, for instance, may be a better option.
