Hertz forced me to take a beatup car that was not clean, not full of gas. I eventually had to bring it back and they tore a piece off that was hanging down underneath. They did not care that I was unhappy and were very uninterested. I would not return to that Hertz location again.

The service provided from the ladies at the front desk was fantastic. They were very welcoming and had a super positive attitude. The car I rented was great. It was the perfect size and very clean.

It wasn't the best car rental experience for sure. The car wasn't ready when I arrived, I had to wait 20 mins for the car clean up. In addition, the car I book wasn't available so they gave me few other choices but none of that in my favour. In my opinion, they should do free upgrade since they don't have I car I reserved.

Worked out OK; disappointed I could not add an additional day of rental after making the initial agreement. Not very flexible.

This was by far the worst experience ive ever had with a rental car and I will also be making a formal complaint on the Hertz website and with the BBB. They gave me a car that was unfit to be on the road and when I questioned it was told oh thats normal you dont need to worry about it as the bumper was falling off the car. If something like that is normal for that vehicle then it should not be in service. The only reason the drop off got 5 stars is because I dropped it off after hours and didnt have to deal with any of the employees at that branch.

This was probably the easiest rental pick up I've ever had. I went online and scheduled the pick up, answered all necessary questions and when I got to Hertz I had to wait my turn and hand over my ID and credit card for payment. Super easy, simple and fast. Will definitely be returning.

The automobile provided met our needs and the rental price was satisfactory.. Upon returning the vehicle after a month rental, the employee was not able to authorize a return ride to our place of residence. This was related to the absence of the manager to approve that expenditure . We view this as poor customer service and it was extremely inconvenient.

You must be at least 21 years old to get a rental car, and an additional fee may apply if you’re under 25.

3 sights that you cannot miss in Phoenix

Once you've got your Phoenix car rental, you're free to explore the city and its suburbs. Here are some of the top attractions in town:

  • Mystery Castle - If there was ever a father-daughter story to retell, this is it. Boyce Luther Gulley was dying and left his family to move to barren Arizona, which was thought to improve weak immune systems. He spent the rest of his life building his daughter a castle in the desert, which she moved into as an adult and lived in for the rest of her days. See the act of love for yourself during your vacation to Arizona.
  • Scottsdale - Drive your Phoenix car rental 15 miles north to Scottsdale, where you'll find upscale dining, thunderous nightclubs, and a wealth of boutique shops.
