KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Flagstaff

  • Car rentals in Flagstaff provide you with independence and the flexibility to visit all of the local attractions on your to-do list, including sights like the Walnut Canyon National Monument and the Sunset Crater. You can also head to Humphrey’s Peak, an area that is known for its hiking, which is just 25 miles away. Flagstaff car rentals even make it easy to visit the famous Grand Canyon National Park, which can be reached by car in around 1h 30min.
  • While Flagstaff does have its own local airport, many visitors fly into the larger Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) that is nearby. This airport’s rental car center can be found within its own building, and there is a free shuttle that can bring you there. To grab the shuttle, simply head to the curb outside of baggage claim at each terminal, where you’ll find a Rental Car Shuttle sign. There are a few different companies to choose from for car rentals in Flagstaff, including Alamo, Sixt, and Thrifty.
  • Some of the streets in the city can be narrow and windy, so adding a GPS system to your car rental can be useful for navigation. Popular neighborhoods like downtown often have a heavy amount of pedestrian traffic, so you’ll want to be on the lookout for anyone around you when you’re behind the wheel.
  • Like many large cities, the streets of Flagstaff tend to become particularly congested during rush hour, as residents head to and from work. Highways 17 and 40 are known for their traffic, as they’re the major roads leading in and out of the city. If you wish to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam, try not to drive downtown or on major highways between the hours of 8-9am and 5-6pm. During the winter months, there may be snow, so make sure to drive extra cautiously if this is the case. If you’re on a schedule or catching a flight, keep these times in mind when planning your route.
  • Book your car hire in Flagstaff at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Luxury car hire in Flagstaff are around -4% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Nothing I couldn’t even pick up my rental and they had my reservation canceled

Cons:

Being up front with their fees, I went in with the misguided notion that my reservation would be honored at the amount agreed on. Instead I was charged my reservation amount with an additional “company policy fee” of $400 on top of what I was already paying for the actual rental. My $300 rental had now come out to over $700. I almost missed my own mother’s funeral. Thank you for your service Alamo!

The Hertz process for extending your vehicle is very difficult - anything after 6pm is very difficult to contact support and speak with an actual human - the automated call center is extremely frustrating as it continuously prompts you deal with it online, and when trying to do online bookings/ vehicle rental extensions, it routes you back to call the same call center number -UGH what a nightmare! Ended up charging me for 2 extra days - smacking me with huge overage fees and additional $200 deposits. All other parts of this rental experience were relatively nice.

The service at hertz could have been better. The women behind the desk didn’t explain a lot. I found out that I had paid a additional 250 dollars. I had to find out myself that I get this money back when returning the car. It was nice if they had told this to me.

I missed my connecting flight and couldn't pick up the car on time. Due to a full-day tour that I scheduled for the 2nd day, I couldn't go get the car till the 3rd day. Their policy is that they would hold the car for 24 hours but then nothing is guaranteed afterwards. The person at Hertz Flagstaff location who helped us managed to get us a car even though the kind we booked was not available anymore. The car we ended up having is really fun to drive and we had a great time for the remainder of the trip!

Feb 2017

Pros:

Customer service at the counter was great-- very friendly and helpful staff! I ended up getting a much nicer car than I had originally reserved due to low inventory at the same price as my original rental. The car was absolutely perfect and I had a blast enjoying the freedom it gave me while I was on my trip.

Cons:

The underage driver charge is rough, but that was to be expected. Additionally, there wasn't very much flexibility in drop off location for a cancelled flight-- driving the car from FLG to PHX would have doubled the cost of my rental just to turn the car in at a different location.
