HERTZ in APACHE JUNCTION Awesome Service BUT CHARGED FULL DAY FOR 1 HR, due to returning car CAUSED BY INSURANCE MISTAKE ON Assigned RENTAL CAR COMPANY! HERTZ UNABLE TO ACCEPT GEICO INSURANCE, REQUIRED OUT OF POCKET CHARGES FOR 2 WEEKS UPFRONT, EVEN THOUGH I AM A HERTZ PRESIDENTIAL MEMBER FOR 10 YEARS!!!

When booking online prior to travel I tried to enter my AAA number for a 20% discount and it was not accepted any of the 3 attempts, so I had to finish the reservation at full price. Since then I have only been given a complete and frustrating runaround from Hertz on trying to get any type of discount. I won't ever rent from them again and have told every family and friend the same.

Pickup in Mesa was very good. Only 1 seriously overworked employee on duty, but he was wonderful. I never received any confirmation of my rental. I drove the car for 8 weeks with no legal proof from Hertz of my rental. ALL my attempts to contact Hertz about this were met with telephone run-arounds. This is the worst customer service from Hertz I have ever had. The car itself was clean and safe for my family. I thank Hertz for the rental and Kayak for facilitating a great opportunity for me.

I didn't receive the car that I requested. I showed up to pick up the rental in Mesa AZ and then the front desk employee decides to tell me at the last second that they don't have the size of vehicle that I requested over a month in advance. I had no choice but to take the smaller vehicle for my long distance 1 way trip. It was extremely frustrating and inconsiderate. I will never rent a vehicle from kayak or hertz ever again! I will make sure to inform others of this blatant disregard of your customers requests so they don't have to experience the same inconsiderate service.
2.0 MediocreApr 26 2022
Hertz is understaffed and disorganized compared to competing rental agencies. My husband called me a Karen but so be it. I waited 45 min to drop off when no one came, no sign or # to call and impossible to get through the 800 #. Luckily another agency next to Hertz the location hasn’t been staffed in 2 years and to just leave the keys in the drop box. Another hertz comes to get the keys the next day. It would have been nice to know this upon booking! May not be worth the few $ to use them.

The car had several scratches/dents and was filthy. The inside had white pet hair all over.
2.0 MediocreApr 14 2022
Wrong car to begin with have to drive back hundreds of miles to get right one . Muddy car had to get the car wash immediately embarrassing. My flight got canceled had to drive back 100 miles from Prescott Arizona to Mesa because they wouldn't answer the phone for weeks to extend the rental. They said it was on hold because vehicle was not registered on customer service. I will never rent with this company again so unorganized

Our flight got delayed and we got into the airport after 11:30 p.m. The Hertz office was still open and we got our car. Easy drop-off process too. We did the "managers special" deal and they gave us a Mustang convertable - perfect for driving around Phoenix. The rental car was one of the best parts about our trip.

I thought I was renting a car from the Alamo at the Phoenix International airport, but it is unclear whether they changed it to Mesa (1/2 hour away) or I mistakenly reserved it there. Either way it was not at all clear at the website. So I arrived at the airport and there was no reservation and no cars available. Very disturbing to deal with.

1.9 HorribleOct 16 2021
Was given the wrong car, got there and they said it's first come first serve even though you reserve a specific vehicle. the car said it was sanitized and clean but I got into it and there were fingerprints all over the windshield, sticky candy-like substances all over the vehicle doors and seats.
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
The manager was niceThey put me in a car that had a recall and after waiting 45 minute to get through the line, I ended up having to back out to get another car, which was a small SUV. Very different from the luxury car that I reserved and paid for.

Counter people in Phoenix airport were the best! However dealing with people over seize in another country for reservations and or changing reservations we’re absolutely HORRIBLE!!!!! If I have to use people from another country I will not book with Enterprise again. They were rude. I asked to have my reservation changed because my flight changed. The guy was super rude. I didn’t get a confirmation of the change. Called a half hour later and talked to someone else and found out he did not change the reservation per the person I spoke with. The second person changed it but it was still messed up. I always use Enterprise and was extremely disappointed!!!

Car was great although there was no explanation of the car we were just handed the key and sent off on our way. A lot of digital stuff in the car to figure out. Otherwise great experience. Pickup and drop off very easy.

The only problem was , at the counter. They wouldn't accept my driver's license, due to it not scanning. I was put in a bad position. I understand it was in bad shape, but all other ID I had showed I was me. I was mad but was able to get a copy of it online. The agent was very helpful when she told me about it. All that put me over an hour late and was very stressful.. Thank you

I was given the keys and told to find the car outside. The car had multiple dings and dents, some of which were marked with small Xs. The car also had a bad lingering smell. Either someone smoked inside at some point or worse.
2.0 MediocreOct 22 2021
I liked I could drop the rental car off in another city. Things that could have gone better 1. They could offer a map, like they use to, to get to the freeway. I’m old and don’t have a navigation device. 2. Shuttle service to budget, no help from them. Being last off plane we missed all taxis, took 2 hrs to get to budget. 3. Unfriendly service once we arrived. Our rental was a dirty car. 4. Once on our way, The car had a light on that wouldn’t go off, pull inconveniently off the road to find they never latched down the front hood of the car. HELLO! 5. The last blow was the return! Pull in they check everything out and see the gas gauge IS on full I’d just filled up. They wanted a receipt for the gas, I was NEVER informed that I would need proof. He basically accused me of trying to return a car without filling up, said some cars the gauge doesn’t drop off the full mark?? WHAT I just drove 170 mi. and you’re telling me your gauge doesn’t work? Needless to say they charged me $49.00 for gas. Need I say more….

was close to where we were staying and was convenient. thought we got a fair rental amount except for the additional cost - see dislike. selection was not great - rented a mid-size car and got a hyndai elantra.went to pick up car and asked for discount for AAA or AARP. Was asked for our aarp card which we gave and received a discount for. Then after we went to pay, was told we needed insurance ($60+) for an additional driver, but if we had used aarp coverage would have been included at no additional charge. he didn't explain that before and he was the one who asked for our AAA card. Explained to use aarp he would have to redo everything and we had already waited about half an hour so we went ahead and paid the additional amount.
3.6 MediocreJan 17 2017
car smelled like pot. the rental agent said it was legas and nothing he could do. Our car was going to the shop and no other cars were available. after going to a casino there was a police checkpoint and they had my wife and I sit on the curb for one hour in the rail while they searched the car. It was one in the morning and we are in our 70's. Never another avis

  • With the huge Tonto National Forest on the northeast, the South Mountain Park 15 miles to the west, and the city of Phoenix only half an hour drive away, there is plenty to explore around Mesa, apart from the wonderful city itself, of course. Mesa is the perfect base for the many incredible hiking and walking opportunities in and around the city, and there is no more convenient way to get to all your remote and local destinations than by car. Rent a car for your time in Arizona and set up your own schedule and itinerary.
  • Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is just over 20 miles from Mesa’s heart, so make it easy and rent a car directly from the various rental car agencies located right at the terminal. A drive to Mesa will only take about half an hour from the airport, and you can head straight to your next destination or accommodation via the US-60 West.
  • Usually, Arizona is known as one of the sun-kissed states with splendid weather; however, there are monsoons happening regularly throughout the state, including heavy rain showers, strong winds, or dust storms. Always heed the warnings of signs and do not enter areas that tend to get flooded when there is a heavy rain storm. Also, as rain showers and dust storms can impair visibility, make sure to adjust your speed or even stop entirely where it is safe, and only drive on when the weather conditions improve.
  • The daily rush hour in Mesa is heaviest on the routes between Mesa and Phoenix, for example on the I-10, US-60, and AZ-202. Especially between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 7pm are peak times in Mesa where the roads can be severely congested. At least an extra hour should be planned ahead so there will be no major delays for travelers.
