I rented Saturday, beginning the Thanksgiving week. The Phoenix airport was overwhelmed and the line to just GET to the rental cars was daunting. Once at the rental hub, I walked straight into the Fox office, right up to the desk and went through the pre-rental process as efficiently as I’ve ever experienced … no hard sells, warnings; you know the drill. In the garage, I had a very limited selection of okay cars. The car was clean, gassed up and I was good to go in minutes. If you are looking for a basic, no frills car rental, Fox is a great choice.

My rental was set for Nov.1,2021. American Airlines cancelled my early morning flight, then they cancelled my early afternoon flight. I called Fox to inform them of the situation & asked for them to try & get me a car for Nov.2, since that was the next flight I was able to procure.They informed me that they would have to cancel my original rental & book a new one. Unfortunately Fox has only one location in Phoenix-Scottsdale area and they didn't have access to any SUV's to rent me on Nov.2,3,4th. They were uninterested in assisting me since I had rented their car through a second party(Kayak).LESSON LEARNED: If you need to rent a car, rent it from a larger rental source such as Avis-Budget, Hertz, Enterprise etc. & never book a reservation through a second party.-Ed Stahl

Too dishonesty pressure to buy features you don’t really need. For example; buy upgrade and later find out at the pickup lot that you can choose any car you want from a compact and economy category.
4.0 Okay15 Nov 2021
The car was fine, Hyundai Sonata, I have one myself. The price is quite high. My in-laws rented from from Enterprise and they paid about 60% of what I paid. Mostly I'm pissed off that when we got the car I added my wife as an add'l driver and they charged me $12 a day + all the damn taxes and fees at the airport. But after checking out FOX's website, I found out spouses are free as an extra driver. I did follow-up after I returned the car and got a refund for the add'l driver. Why did I have to dig into their own website to find this out. It should have been FREE upfront. I will be much more selective in the future.

1.9 Horrible19 Jul 2021
Our negative score has to do with an issue we had with our first vehicle. During the first days of our trip we wound up with a flat tire and had to call Alamo Customer Service for assistance. In fact, we had to call them three separate times to get the issue resolved, because they wanted us to switch our car for a replacement and kept driving us in slow circles all over town on a spare tire trying to find a location that 1) was actually OPEN and 2) actually HAD CARS for us to switch with. Each time the customer service representative told us we'd called the wrong number and gave us a different, also wrong, number. One even hung up on us instead of passing us through to the right person, who we NEVER got the proper number to reach directly. We spent the rest of our long trip terrified of another flat tire. Both cars themselves were fine, with excellent gas mileage and technologically advanced features we don't even have on our own cars at home. If the above incident had been handled even one iota better they probably would be getting an OK or positive score. So, overall, if you have no issues Alamo is probably going to be great for you. But the next time we're planning a road trip of any flavor we're going with someone else.

I loved the in person customer service. They are the absolute best in both my pick up and drop off locations! They treated me very well and I am grateful for their help through it all. Something that could improve was clarity. I was not made aware about the policies that I committed to when it came to renting a car. It would be nice to know the pricing breakdown and why I felt like I was being overcharged. Also the customer service on the phone was confusing, not helpful, and rude.

There was confusion regarding the class of vehicle. We had a luxury class vehicle reserved and I believe we only got a premium class vehicle. We dropped the car at Las Vegas Airport instead of a hotel which was 3 miles from the airport.

Turned out okAfter flying across the country (Syracuse to Phoenix) we arrived to pick up our car and was told they didn't have any and that it could take a few hours to get. The first gentleman was very nice and apologized. He even suggested we check with their competitors. We did, with no luck, so went back to Dollar and the second man was rude and showed no interest in helping us. With no other options, we went down to check in and wait. Luckily, it wasn't long before a car became available. My issue was that I made this reservation months in advance. Dollar should be ready to accommodate those reservations even if that means going to another one of their locations and picking cars up.

Everything was as it can be expected. Low mileage car, practically new.

Available car was the bare-bone basic model.

We liked that we were able to pick it up in PHX and leave it at LAS. The car was clean and very efficient on gas.Not just this one but ALL car rental places try to sell extra insurance for when the car would be out of service in case of an accident. Why not just charge more and stop this ridiculous practice? . Most people have insurance or credit cards that cover in case of accident.
6.8 Good9 May 2017
huge price increase from quoteThe Nissan car we ended up with was clean, comfortable, and a smooth ride.The quote I received from Kayak was $179 for a 2 week rental. The nominal rate was $29.98 per week. When I checked in, with tax & fees the quote was approximately $250. When I said I wanted my spouse as an extra driver, they added $13.50 per day plus tax & fees. I was expecting to get a rental for $179. It ended up costing me $467. Furthermore, when I arrived I was given 3 cars to choose from. I picked out a Ford Focus. I loaded all my luggage & began to drive toward the exit. The car hesitated & stalled when I accelerated, so I returned & selected a different car. I placed the keys of the Focus on the dashboard, where they were when I found them. I popped the trunk, stepped out of the car, and closed the drivers door. To my dismay, the doors were locked. I had not pushed the door lock button. I returned to the booth & explained the problem & waited a half hour while a staff person finally arrived and extracted the keys so I could get my backpack out of the back seat. Not a pleasant start to my trip.

When I made it through the 45 minute line with 2 suitcases and wearing a back brace and walking shoe I was told my reservations was not completed when I dropped my car off at San Antonio location! I was stuck in airport 5 hours until I could secure ride to sun city, then had to come in next day to get a car! That was a nightmare! The car and staff were great, other than the Phoenix counter staff upon my arrival, all was pleasant and I believe I will be a return customer.

The main issue with Budget is that they have not embraced new technologies as they should. They are still using dot matrix printers!!!!! Also the culture is a problem, they are still under the impression they are doing “me” a favor instead of the other way around. Their business model needs a 180 turn around, my flight was longer than the wait to get the rental!!!!!!! An owner or true manager needs to observe and see how lethargic these people are, there’s no sense of urgency, no desire to get business going, like I said they think they are doing us a favor. I am quite at wonder how are they still in business??? Anyway I will not be renting from budget again, rather pay more to get a fast service somewhere else. Thanks

1.9 Horrible13 Sep 2021
I will never rent a car with Payless again. I waited in line for almost 2 hours. There were only about 6 people ahead of me when I got in line. One of the other customers asked one of the Payless employees if there was something going on that caused such a long wait. It was a legitimate question, and she asked it kindly. The Payless employee was very short with her and responded with an attitude saying, "It's a holiday weekend." I think we all were aware it was a holiday weekend. He basically dismissed her comment, and his tone of voice indicated he thought she was dumb for even asking that question. When I finally got to the counter after almost 2 hours, I was told it would be another 30-60 minute wait MINIMUM for a car. I was also told the customer ahead of me had already been waiting for 25 minutes and still did not have a car. I asked why there was a wait if I had a reservation, and I've already been waiting for so long. He said they "didn't have any cars." I guess I don't understand how your business works, but it was my understanding that a 2:00 reservation means I would expect a car rental to be available at that time, not 3 hours later at 5pm. It would have been at least 3 hours if I chose to stay and wait. It was my birthday. My best friend had just flown in to town to visit me, who I haven't seen in 2 years due to COVID, and I decided in that moment I was not going to wait any longer. My friend spent her first 2 hours in town with me waiting in line for a car rental at the airport that we never got. This really affected the rest of our day. We had to push our dinner reservation that night to a later time, and the rest of our evening activities got cut short due to the time wasted waiting in line for a car rental with a RESERVATION that we never received. Not to mention, the Payless employee who informed us it was going to be another 25-30 minutes did not seem to care the least bit about the huge inconvenience, and he was not apologetic at all. This was a different employee than the one who was short with the other customer in line. I see a pattern here. The employees were not very kind, genuine, or caring, probably because they have been dealing with angry customers all day. No one should have to work at a job where they are being abused by customers. I personally would be miserable if I worked there; however, there is something called human decency, kindness, and compassion that all humans should give to others. I know I was kind to the Payless employee. I was annoyed and frustrated, but I wasn't rude or condescending like some other customers can be. I made the best decision for myself and my best friend by walking out because I chose not to wait any longer and ruin the rest of my birthday plans. When I told the employee I wanted to cancel my reservation that I had pre-paid for, he said I could not cancel it through Payless because I purchased the reservation through a 3rd party. I am currently reaching out to Kayak, the 3rd party, and navigating that situation, and I'm not sure I will be able to get a refund on my almost $200 car rental. Please do yourself a favor and do not rent a car through a 3rd party because there is no guarantee you will get your money back. Also, don't rent a car from the airport if you can avoid it. There are plenty of other local places in town that will not have a ridiculous wait. Finally, Payless, I strongly suggest you train your staff in having respect, compassion, and kindness for other humans. It doesn't take much to smile and be kind, even when you're having a bad day. I also suggest supporting your staff with incentives and perks so they actually enjoy their job and aren't miserable. Their happiness will be reflected in how they treat the customers they serve. In the meantime, I will definitely never be renting from Payless ever again.

Tire lights were on for both vehicles. May have been heat related. Second car requires maintenance but didn’t see the notice until we left the airport. Waited in line an hour to get the car. Agent “upgraded” me to a Camry because he said the one I selected was a Beetle. Roamed the entire garage and not a beetle in sight.

When I went to get the vehicle, all the lights were off and I was not able to rent. Stuck in a busy airport with no vehicle.

Everything else was good.The lighting was so bad in the underground pick-up "choose a car" area that I felt I was choosing a car by braille. As it happened, I chose a vehicle with damage to the bumper area--which was not stated in my copy of the rental agreement. When I turned the car back in they said that I would be charged for it unless their cameras recorded the pre-existing damage. What a relief to eventually be proven "not guilty"!

When renting a luxury SUV you would expect the vehicle to be clean, pristine and everything in working order. I did not get that from this rental. Disappointed.

Pick-up was difficult, with more than an hour's wait at the airport in Phoenix. But the drop-off in Glibert, AZ, was very easy. This is why I had trouble answering the question that combines both ends of our car rental--one was the worst part of the hire, the other was great!

Pick up was fine--don't typically use Avis so I had to wait in line and they put the hard sale on to accept all the add ons.The car they gave me had a smell of someone who smoked in it prior to me. Although fine, it was not super clean inside. The warning light for service of the rear park aid stayed on during the rental. The rental did the job as I had a hard time finding one but wouldn't use them again unless in a bind.

Drop off was very easy in chandler arizona.Pick up took 1 hour 25 minutes at PHX airport. You need more staff now that more people are flying. Gave me and another person the same car. Man at gate had me go back and get a different car in a different spot. He said that was my car. It was a mess and my wife stood outside at the airport with luggage for that 1 hr 25 minutes. Nuts

We got in very late at night and had to wander around a bit to find a hertz worker. Once we found them check in was easy. The overall price was great!the car (focus sedan) was not to our liking but not really hertz fault. acceleration was odd and front seats were not real comfortable. had we known we would have picked a different car.

HorribleOnce we actually received the car, it was fine.Everything. The Kayak reservation didn't pull up and they tried to charge us double the rate. Last time I book on Kayak or Hertz. From here on out I'm only using the rental car company's website to make reservations. Kayak and Hertz should reevaluate their system compatibility. Also, the wait time was an hour and a half to pick up the car. Just very unpleasant experience all the way around. - Mike

Poor serviceNot much oftuneatektCar was old scratched up and dinged. Heavy additional sales attempt at airport after a long flight on elderly (over 85). Ended up taking another car that was cheaper grade but in better shape but of course hertz charged more. People at hertz in Phoenix airport as bad as it gets. Rented hundreds of cars. They are in a class by themselves.

Didn't meet expectations.Ease of picking up and drop off. Friendly staff.Car's "power outlet" (aka, cigarette lighter) did not work, therefore, we were unable to charge our phones and could not use our own GPS unit. The steering wheel shook after 70 mph, usually signaling bad balance or misalignment. We drove over 1,200 miles this way. Finally, oil change light appeared three days before returning the car.

AAA membership was not honoredI have AAA memebership which entitles me to free spouse driver. However, since it was booked via 3rd party, Kayak, Hertz was adamant about not honoring it. I was not very happy since price through Hertz or AAA direct was also sane as through Kayak. This teaches me not to book through Kayak anymore.

Over the top service and excellent vehicle choice.We somehow got a special price on this rental, that being said, the service from staff, pick up, drop off and shuttle to and from the air were all first class. Very high tech coordination with the car unlocking when we got to the rental center. Included were satellite radio, navigation and surprisingly gas mileage over 40 mpg on the highway. This is a great rental opportunity for many.There was the fact that the car was an Audi Quattro, so smaller than I would normally rent, compared to my Ford Edge, but I cannot complain about anything.

Top tips for hiring a car at Phoenix Sky Harbor Intl Airport

  • When you reserve a car rental at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, you will have a reliable and comfortable way to explore the city. While Phoenix does have its own transportation system, it is limited and does not widely connect the city. One of the most convenient ways to explore the region is by driving, as you can stick to your own schedule and head to your own destination whenever you like, rather than depending on the local bus. It will also make it easier for you to travel with luggage or sports equipment.
  • There are a few rental car companies that are particularly easy to use, including popular national brands such as Alamo, Hertz, and SIXT. All three of these companies will allow you to make your reservation ahead of time, making the pick-up process quick and simple. They also offer no-contact returns even outside of their business hours, so you can drop your vehicle off whenever works best for you.
  • If you are ready to return your car rental at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, you can bring it back to the same place that you first picked up your vehicle. All companies keep their fleets directly on airport property, within walking distance of the main terminal. To find the exact location where you will need to drop off your Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport car rental, look for the airport’s signs that will guide you towards the drop-off area. Once you have left the car, you can finish up any outstanding paperwork with your rental company.
  • Phoenix is a bustling business hub and a popular destination for travelers, so it tends to have traffic. If you don’t want to get stuck in any congestion, try to avoid picking up or returning your car rental at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport during rush hour, which is typically when people are headed to and from work in the mornings and evenings. Certain roads near the airport can get particularly busy, such as Interstates 10 and 60.
