Pickup was awful. Staff seemed uninterested in helping me get my reserved vehicle. Took over an hour with only one customer ahead of me.

Matt was our agent for the rental and we were very pleased with his helpful attitude and service. Everything was perfect. We rent often and have had good and bad experiences this was a memorably good one. Thanks to Hertz and their staff you made the difference.

After reading the reviews, I was concerned that we were going to have a problem but I think the problem others have had is that they are expecting airport amenities and assortment. This is a small, local branch. The fact that we were able to pick up and return seamlessly after my last experience with the airport car rental facility (the worst I have ever known....not Hertz but the whole airport rental location and process) was a relief.The car we had smelled of stale smoke but we were warned and would have had to wait for another car. The note was made so that we were not charged and they indicated that it had been an ongoing challenge since recreational marijuana was legalized in AZ. Understandable.

Pick up was Great, Hertz closed at 530pm and return time was at 8pm after hours the next day. At checkin Hertz Rep said “No problem for after hours return if closed. Just lock the car and return keys In drop box”. I return car the next at 7pm before my 8pm return time and drop keys in rental box. I few hrs later I receive an alert from my CC advising me of a Fraudulent $100 charge made by Hertz rent-a-car that was just attempted on my card. Thankfully My Bank declined the charge. Be careful who you rent from.

Very good and easy. Concerned with short hour pickup and return. Also limited cars availableEasier hours for pickup and return. More than one employee when several people waiting.

We decided to rent at the airport, so I was happy that you had cars in stock.The employee at the office was fairly rude. We arrived and was told that even though we booked a van, we were not guaranteed anything that big. Basically said, just because you booked a van, you might end up with a car. The van was older and scratched up. The passenger door handle on the inside was broken. It was fairly clean inside, so I was happy about that, but the van was tired and should not be rented anymore. National would not have a car like that in their inventory.

Drop off and pick up was super easy. The car was brand new, clean, and had every feature I wanted.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.

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.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.

The staff was so rude when we went to pick it up. I will never use the company again.Any and all restrictions need to be disclosed on the website at booking. Especially if there are geographical restrictions.
2.0 Mediocre7 Jul 2020
NothingThe 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!

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.

My car had former damage that lead to a wheel rub when turning. It also smelled like smoke. Neither of which were the fault of the pick up attendant. She didn’t get the car until night before my pick up . When I turned in the car there wasn’t anyone there to talk to and I still haven’t received a final receipt.

Good car, great value for the amount of time that used the SUV.Chris Frieh the agency operator was finally able to get a SUV for me. But he could never commit when there would be an SUV available. In fact, I took an SUV that was returned with 3/4 tank of gas and not cleaned because I needed to leave right at noon.

Not quite was we ordered but a great dealStaff in Scottsdale were super nice and the price was great.Pick-up spot had a very limited selection of vehicles. Upgrade was ridiculously priced - meant to deter us from taking it because it was a one way rental.

Horrible experience! We were scheduled to pick up our car at 2 on the 8th. Our flight ran about 20 minutes late but when we arrived at the Avis location there was a note on the door that they closed at 2. We called Avis and they told us there was nothing they could do about it. We called the local office the next morning and they told us they did not have any vehicles for us so we just cancelled. Why didn't the office call us on the 8th to let us know they were closing and to make arrangements for us to pick up a vehicle at another location? Definitely will not be using Avis again!

Not much. Car was okay.Didn't get the car I requested. Received a big gas guzzling SUV instead. Gas tank was only about 3/4 full. Returned the car with a full tank and was expecting some type of credit. Attendant Mike T. laughed and said no, but thanks for filling up the car! Writing letter to AVIS. Not a happy customer.

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 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Scottsdale are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average
