Top tips for renting a car in Tucson

  • The spread out nature of Tucson means that it is ideal for car travel. When you’re visiting, rent a car to discover the Sonoran Desert and beyond rather than relying on the limited public transportation. With the comfort of a car, you can explore the city’s historic center or drive as far as the Santa Catalinas mountain range.
  • Planning to rent a car on your Tucson vacation? When you fly into Tucson International Airport you will have two options for renting your car. There are on-site car hire counters in the hire Car Center on the lower level of the main Terminal. You can also take a courtesy shuttle from outside the center to an off-site location.
  • Driving around Arizona, you need to be aware that many of the major highways have HOV or "high occupancy vehicle" lanes, which means you can drive in these lanes as long as there are more than two people in your car. During monsoon season, visibility on the roads does worsen, so do not attempt to drive during heavy rain and winds or dust storms.
  • Tucson’s morning rush hour is usually from 7:00 am to 10:00 am, while the evening rush hour can begin at 3:00 pm and finish at 7:00 pm. Roads will also be more congested as the weekend approaches, so expect extra traffic from Thursday. It’s best to avoid driving downton and throughout central Tucson, as traffic can be heavy during the morning and evening rush hours.
  • Book your rental car in Tucson at least 8 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
