KAYAK’s top tips for hiring 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 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Scottsdale are around 58% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Scottsdale

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Scottsdale?

    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.

  • What’s the speed limit in Scottsdale?

    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).

  • Where are the best places to park in Scottsdale?

    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.

  • How much is the price of fuel in Scottsdale?

    The average price of fuel in Scottsdale is $6.38 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of uel costs between $76 and $102, depending on the car size.

No SUV available as reserved on arrival except the one with a HUGE crack in the windshield. No apology, no alternative offered and when we requested another car we were told it was for Uber drivers not customers. Finally was given a LOWER tier vehicle and told it would actually cost MORE. So the branch manager "reduced" it down to the higher tier rate that I had agreed to for the SUV. AGain no apologies or explanation except that it was a busy time, regardless of your reseveration. The office is literally dirty, there is no lighted signs at night and the parking lot is dark and sketchy, next door to a strip club. Would NEVER use this place again.

Typical Hertz service, it's always lacking in comparison to the competition. Even with your eyes closed you can tell your're at Hertz in about 30 seconds. I reserved for five days and was on the weekly (five day) rate. Their hours would have required me to leave the car in the lot overnight on my return - obviously at my liability - not something I was willing to do. So I said I'd go with a four day rate and bring it back a day early. The guy at the counter couldn't make it work and told me I'd have to pay more for a four day rental than the five day rental 'since it was on a weekly rate to start with'. Ok, so I'm on a weekly rate, I get that, and was only renting it five days. Fine, I'll just keep it the full week and bring it back then. He wanted to charge me more to do that. So I couldn't shorten my rental because I was 'on the weekly rate' and I couldn't keep if the full week but was on the weekly rate. You have a flaw . I cancelled my reservation , went 300 yards down the road to the competition and got a car for the days I needed it at the same rate Hertz's system was charging me for the week . Why would a customer that experienced that ever go back to Hertz?

Even though there was only one person working at the time, he was really quick/efficient and very courteous! When he went outside with the customer before me he made sure to tell me he would be with me very shortly, and he was. The whole process of getting the car was smooth and way easier than I thought it would be (I had never rented a car before)! It was an all-around great experience!

Nov 2020

KAYAK

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.

I had a confirmed reservation priced at $435.20. When I arrived at AVIS, I was told my RESERVED CAR was not available and the only car that was was going to cost me 200 DOLLARS MORE. Given that I was alone, had no way to get another rental, and that time was of the essence because my sister was ADMITTED TO HOSPICE that day and I needed to get there ASAP, I had no choice but to take the car. I’m not sure why I should ever use KAYAK if your your system cannot lock in the price with a RESERVATION. I filled a complaint via your KAYAK customer service and NOTHING HAS BEEN RESOLVED. Feeling abused by both KAYAK and AVIS and will NEVER USE YOUR APP and will tell others not to use it as well and will never rent from AVIS again given their utter and complete dishonesty. A completely HORRIBLE experience.
