Cons: I ordered an Audi Q7 and they didn't have it when i went to pick up my rental so they gave me a Infinity Q60 instead... If i wanted it a Infinity i would have rented one. So I say they should be better and work on offering what they'll really have or not rent forward the vehicles they already have rented for an specific day

8.0 Excellent30 Jun 2021
Pros: Super easy pick up and drop-off! We chose this location because it was WAY cheaper than airport. Uber or Green TRAX get you from airport to here quickly and your still WAY under airport price.Cons: Daily coverage explanations. I’d called my own insurance about coverage so declined theirs. We had a flat. It all worked out and it was repairable but you just never know what could go wrong.
2.0 Mediocre25 Jun 2021
Pros: The call ahead of my pick up to let me know it was the downtown location.Cons: Clarity on the rental location. Information about the key drop for the afterhours return.
2.0 Mediocre24 May 2021
Pros: Car was clean but damagedCons: Staff was awful, both at pick up and drop off. I will never use Enterprise again and am already advising my friends and family of the terrible experience I had. At pickup, I was charged $206 more than what my reservation was for. The agent could not figure out why, and then suggested that it was because my drop off location was different, which it was not, Pick up and drop off were at SLC airport. I called Enterprise and it was confirmed that there was nothing in my reservation that had ever indicated drop off at a different location, and I was advised to call on a Monday to get it resolved. When I dropped the car off, it was over a $200 difference again. This time, the agent was trying to tell me that taxes for 1 extra day was over $100. I showed her my original reservation which showed $86/day and a total of $48 for 3 days of taxes. 3 days of taxes at $48 is $16/day, and she could not tell my why the taxes would be $140 for 1 extra day. Complete incompetence. I asked for a manager and she finally took this phantom charge off my bill. So what is the deal Enterprise? You tried to screw me coming and going. Is this how your employees are trained? Do you think most people are just going to shrug it off because they are at an airport and really have no other choice? Never again with Enterprise.

Pros: The staff was helpfulCons: The car was supposed to be non smoking and had been smoked in. It was an ok car but for the money should have been better

2.0 Mediocre10 Jun 2021
Pros: Nothing -- will not use them ever again.Cons: They were misleading and wouldn't let me extend the contact. Charged me anyway and their customer service was horrible. Bounced me around between departments and never provided a solution.
4.0 Okay12 May 2021
Pros: PriceCons: Reservations give a company a pretty good idea of how busy they will be on any given day. We picked up our car on a Friday with a convention in town, why are they understaffed on a day like this? It took over an hour to get to my car. They might have made a profit that day, but I will think twice before going with Dollar/ Thrifty again.
10.0 Excellent16 Apr 2021
Pros: Very easy pick up and drop off. Very smooth operation.Cons: I have no complains.
2.0 Mediocre9 Apr 2021
Pros: No Dollar staff at counter at time of pick up which was 10.30 am on a weekday. Had to wait over an hour in a long line to get a rental from another company and got charged 89 more dollars in charges.
2.0 Mediocre3 Apr 2021
Pros: The car was great and the drop off was easy.Cons: We initially paid about $360 for our rental and were told that we would pay $167 more once we picked up the rental. Instead we ended up paying $478. Also, there was no option online to check how much more it would be for people under 25.
10.0 Excellent24 Mar 2021
Pros: Staff was AWESOME. Pickup and drop off were simple and quick.Cons: Both pickup and drop off were at different counters/spots than Dollar. Ended up picking up at the Thrifty counter and dropping off in the Hertz spots. Really just a minor inconvenience.
10.0 Excellent8 Mar 2021
Pros: Easy pick up/drop off
8.0 Excellent26 Dec 2020
Pros: Drop off in Vegas was super easy and the attendant was super friendly and quick.Cons: Pick-up in Salt Lake was way to slow. Partly because of the first time renter asking a million questions at the pick-up window, and because they were under staffed.

4.0 Okay1 Jul 2021
Pros: The suburban we rented was in good shape and we had no mechanical issues while rentingCons: It took an hour to pick up despite having a reservation because it was being cleaned. Once picked up it smelt heavily of smoke. We were also charged a hefty concession fee not noted in the original quote.
8.0 Excellent2 Jun 2021
Pros: It was a nice new clean car.Cons: Pickup is very slow. A long line, with only two desk agents. Why do they ask all the same questions I already entered in when I made the reservation? They should have my name, address, phone number, drivers' license, and credit card. Just give me the keys, please. It shouldn't take nearly as long as it takes.
10.0 Excellent26 May 2021
Cons: Great, simple, fast, service ion a very nice new car.
2.0 Mediocre5 May 2021
Pros: The pickup at Salt Lake City airport had 1 attendant for 30 people, then the manager on duty arrived and helped. The attendants did the best they could with the crowd they had to manage.Cons: We had potential safety issues with our car when 4 and a half hours away from a rental office. We repeatedly were disconnected from service agents on the phone, and NO FOLLOWUP when this happened. Had to spend several hours on hold with NO resolution and, I repeat, NO FOLLOWUP. The safety issue turned out to be OK, but Thrifty was not interested in the least to help us ensure our safety was assured and our vacation plans not totally upended.
4.0 Okay27 Apr 2021
Cons: I was in line for over 1 hour to pick up the car in SLC.....unsatisfactory! Everyone in line had reservations, so not sure how "manning the booth" during this period was not better predicted. If I hadn't prepaid, I would have moved over to another vendor. Agents did their best to keep things moving and were courteous. I appreciate the gesture of an upgrade, but didn't really need it.
4.0 Okay27 Apr 2021
Pros: The pick-up process was awful and very poorly managed, but the car was clean and the drop-off was convenient.Cons: I waited in line for over an hour and a half to pick up my car, causing me to miss an activity on the first day of my trip. There was one person servicing a line of 30+ people until a second person (the manager) finally showed up to help once the line looked like it was close to 50 people. She was unapologetic for the wait and cited the fact that they are the cheapest as the justification for being severely understaffed to manage the number of reservations for that day/time. The counter itself looked like it was meant to accommodate at least 6 agents. After the long wait, when I finally got to the counter, they didn't have the type of car (mid-class) I had reserved for myself. While their prices are competitive I'm not sure I would book with them again in this location.
2.0 Mediocre13 Apr 2021
Pros: Understaffed. Not helpful. Slow. This company undercut all the other competitors and had 30 people standing in the line for a car with only one person processing customers. the rest of the rental car lines had no people. We waited over 2 hours in line for our car and was late for our event. Will never go with Thrifty ever again.Cons: DO NOT USE THRIFTY.
4.0 Okay12 Apr 2021
Pros: Fast drop offCons: False marketing of premium SUV. Nicer SUVs were in a class below. $300+ Extra fees charged at the airport. Bait and switch.
2.0 Mediocre1 Apr 2021
Pros: NothingCons: The ability to cancel
6.0 Good26 Mar 2021
Pros: The pick up at the SLC airport was horrible as I had to wait in line for over an hour to pick up the car. There was only 1 staff member for Thrifty and on 1 staff member for Dollar which made the entire process VERY slow. On the other hand the drop off at LAX was VERY easy/excellent, and a service representative came right over and checked me and the car out.Cons: There could have been more service representatives at the rental counter to make it so that so many people did not have to wait over an hour to pick up their car. Everyone was complaining regarding the lack of service representatives at the rental counter.

Pros: Not friendly. Gave me a lifted Tacoma pick up truck instead of a Toyota Corona. (I have a 98 year old father who needed to get in and out of the vehicle, so that was not acceptable.). Then they charged me over $1,100 for a contract that was supposed to be $750Cons: Everything. When I finally did get a Car, it was filthy when I received it.

8.0 Excellent28 Jun 2021
Pros: Easy pickup. I wanted the car for a 3 hour round trip from Salt Lake Airport to Idaho Falls. Originally was expecting a Chrysler 300, but when I was through, it had turned into a Audi Q5 Quattro. A real plus on a long drive. And for the same price of my original car.Cons: Can't really think of anything here. The car used premium fuel, which is more expensive, but still think the extra cost was worth it.

Pros: The car was nice. And complimentary shuttle was great.Cons: Customer service could have been better, it did not feel that welcoming. When shuttling having my information to verify we aren’t getting into a strangers car would have felt safer. When going over the pre damages on the car before I leave I felt that it would be more beneficial for them to come out and inspect the car with me rather than me doing it alone. Security deposit amount needs to be listed because that was a surprise. But we enjoyed the car and returning it was easy. I just feel that those other things I mentioned need to be worked on.
9.2 Excellent9 Dec 2019
Pros: The rate was great and I like that they had Toyota Sequoias.Cons: The pick-up drop off is a little clunky. The exterior signs at the airport do not say Advantage, the driver for another company explained that one shuttle picked up for Advantage and the other. And I know that this is not necessarily Advantage's fault but when you google Advantage Airport another location in SLC shows up.
10.0 Excellent9 Dec 2019
Pros: Pickup is by shuttle that stops at the airport Rental Car office for other brands. Return to that office offsite is navigable by Google mapping.Cons: Satisfied with rental. Mid Size SUV reserved was Toyota Rav4 but substituted with Mitsubishi Outlander of equivalent size, also 4WD.
4.8 Okay19 Nov 2019

5.6 Okay23 Oct 2019
Pros: Drop off was easyCons: Upon pickup staff was rude and even though I reserved and paid for one thing was told that I could not have that unless I paid more because I wasn’t from out of town. There should be additional questions when booking so that you are aware of the price diu long upon pickup and so you’re not thinking the price you paid at reservation was it when it wasn’t. I will never rent from Advantage again.
4.8 Okay20 Oct 2019
Pros: Returning the car was fastCons: The car had mechanical issues upon pick up (I was only renting for a few hours) and it was very difficult to get it resolved. The advantage staff and roadside assistance were little help.

Pros: The manager did make corrections to fix the problems and was very kind.Cons: The car was very dirty at pickup outside. Full of scratches and a cigarette burn hole in the seat.

Pros: Staff was friendly and very forthcoming with all the extra chargesCons: Vehicle was advertised as unlimited miles on your app. When I went to pick up I was informed that the limit was 250 miles per day. I was driving to a city that was 275 miles away

No one would answer any of the phone numbers I called. Every number said to leave a message and someone would call back as soon as possible. I never received a call back. When we finally got to the Budget SLC rental center via Uber, it was closed. We were forced to call Uber a second time and have them return us to the airport. We went to the Budget counter in the airport and had to rent a car for $300 more than our original reservation. We will never use Budget again and I strongly recommend no else should either. It was not our fault the plane was delayed. The Budget counter at the airport should have honored our reservation.

4.0 Okay13 Jun 2021
Pros: Made reservations online. When arrived for pickup at SLC airport waited in line for 30 minutes. Was told my car wasn’t ready and I would have to wait for 30 minutes or more OR I could pay $40 more per day and get upgraded to a car that was ready right now. It looked to us like most people in line were being given the same sell. It felt to me like a big bait and switch. The upgrade was a nice small BMW SUV but I didn’t want to pay for it. I just wanted my original rental and the original price. But I didn’t want to wait another 1/2 hour plus.Cons: To have my reservation ready when I arrived.
8.0 Excellent12 Jun 2021
Pros: Friendly staff, easy drop off clean and efficient autoCons: Waited over an hour in the line at checkin…..only 1 agent and lots of renters
2.0 Mediocre7 Jun 2021
Pros: I got to budget at my reservation time at the airport. The main counter was closed. A sign said to go to the place you pick up/return cars. There was one person there checking in cars. I showed him my reservation and he said they sold out all ther cars the night before at 8:00. He said he could do nothing for me. I told him I had a reservation and wouldn’t leave til I got a car. He said that maybe a car would be cleaned at 8:00 AM. I told him I had an 8:00 meeting 1/2 hour away. He then told me I could rent “one of these BMW SUV’s now” I said at the Reservation rate? He said, “no, their rate is $190 /day..” unbelievable. I took an Uber to my meeting and did not have a car for three days. Never again with Budget. Most unbelievable travel experience I have had, really, and I’ve been to some somewhat sketchy places in the world.Cons: See above
10.0 Excellent3 Jun 2021
Cons: Waze confused location address with residential neighborhood and person picking me up put location address in their GPS and was taken to the airport. Fortunately, both wrong locations were within 2-3 miles of the Budget store so all was OK. Other than that, great experience and I will use them again!
6.0 Good20 May 2021
Cons: Took too long to get the car. Only one counter employee. Price for a 5 day rental was more than my round trip airline tickets for 2 people.

Pros: Quick and friendly service. The service center was off site so you were picked up from the airport from their shuttle service but there wasn’t a line and check in and out was super fast compared to those poor people waiting in the airport lines.Cons: It was a little confusing on where to find the shuttle to get to Fox but once I just asked someone we were pointed in the right direction.
6.0 Good7 Jul 2021
Pros: We got a brand new car, so that was nice and reliable.Cons: Not enough shuttles. And the one(s) we caught a ride in we’re run down. Along with the building. I also got charged more upon arrival, even though I booked through Kayak and paid what I thought was all of it through there. The shuttle pick up/ drop off location is a little difficult to locate at the new airport and Fox’s automated system is not updated where to locate it.

Pretty poor pickup/customer servicePros: The car was clean/in good condition. The price was reasonable.Cons: The woman at the front desk was exceptionally rude and unprofessional. On her cell phone throughout the conversation. She made me get out of line after waiting about 45 minutes to be helped, because the fraud detection fired on my card and it declined. I was on the phone with chase and had it remedied in less that 5 minutes, but had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes to get back in line and be helped. My boyfriend offered to put the hold on his card, but they refused and said I would have to ad him as an authorized driver and pay more if we did that. All and all I’d say find a different place. I wouldn’t use them again, even though the car was fine. I was seeing red leaving here.
5.6 Okay9 Sep 2018
Pros: The associate was very helpful in explaining everything.Cons: This was my first time renting a car and it was a mixed experience. The car wasn't very clean when I received it. When I made the reservation with a drop off of 4:30 AM, I wasn't told they would be closed and that I'd just have to leave it outside the gate. Also, I wasn't told about the $200 deposit they take at the counter.

2.0 Mediocre24 Jun 2020
Pros: I ended up canceling the reservation the day I was to pick up the car and ended up using another company. The number given in the confirmation email to call once you land for shuttle service to pick up the car was no longer in service so I googled for a different number. That brought you to an automatic messaging instructing you to call the same number to arrange airport pick up. After about an hour of waiting unsure of whether or not any shuttle was coming I received a text saying someone would be by in about another hour to pick us up. By that point i had already canceled the reservation and booked with Avis and picked the car up at the airport, no shuttle necessary.
5.6 Okay24 Jun 2020
Cons: The van was not a newer van it had 73k miles and the tires were scalloped so at highway speeds we were in a cement shaker. We called about 45 mins out for a trade and they declined to meet us. Anytime we called for pickup it required multiple attempts to reach someone and even though we gave an hour notice when we were returning the attendant was not at the office and we waited 10 mins for him because he did not receive the Multiple calls of our arrival It was useable van but a mediocre experience on all fronts but it was cheaper by $100 I would get a nicer van and pay the $100 more

They decided to close early and left many families stranded at the airport. We ended up using Budget and paying more because we did not have a reservation. When we called Firefly, the number did not lead to the SLC location and the person kept telling us on the phone that they should be there and that they were on a break. We waited more than 10 minutes. Budget told us they left for the day/eve. Bad service. Don't use them unless you're sure they will be open.

Top tips for renting a car in Salt Lake City

  • Planning on picking up a hire car after landing at Salt Lake City International Airport? Getting to the hire car center is simple; just exit the main terminal and head to the parking garage across from it -- you will find the hire car counters on the ground floor.
  • Visitors to Salt Lake City will rejoice to hear that Salt Lake City does not suffer from severe rush hour as is so typical in other cities. However, while congestion may not be on the same level as the likes of New York City or Dallas, traffic does still slow from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. In particular, I-15 can get backed up during the peak of rush hour.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in Salt Lake City is that the whole city becomes readily accessible. For example, perhaps you would like to catch a Utah Jazz game at Vivint Smart Home Arena. You could take public transportation to the arena, but you will find that a car is a much more convenient way of getting there, especially when you take getting back home after the game into consideration.
  • Utah is an absolute utopia for winter sports, thanks to its world-class snow. However, its snow is both a blessing and a curse for visitors to Utah, as many of them may not be used to driving on snowy or icy roads. Some tips for driving in the snow include: don’t power up hills, avoid stopping on hills, drive slowly, and keep a safe distance from the cars in front of you.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Salt Lake City for £25 or less

  • Like most cities in the U.S., Salt Lake City is defined by wide roads and large parking spaces. Fortunately for drivers who prefer large vehicles, this means they will have no problem renting even the largest of cars. However, one thing to keep in mind is that you may be driving long distances between Utah’s wonderful natural sites, so perhaps a more fuel-friendly vehicle might be more ideal.

  • Drivers will see an array of speed limits in Salt Lake City ranging from 25 to 50 mph on the city’s various residential and city roads. On the highway, the speed limit ranges from 65 to 70 mph when the highways are near cities and then on interstate highways the speed limit occasionally increases to 75 and 80 mph.
