Fox Car Rental seems to get low reviews, but I've had two experiences renting from them (one in Salt Lake City, one in Seattle) that have been quite pleasant. I rent a lot of cars and have had a wide range of experiences at different car rental companies. I found the sales reps at Fox to be very personable. The cars I got were in very good condition and were what I asked for (in Salt Lake, I got a free upgrade to a bigger SUV). The prices were much better than at competing rental car companies at the time that I booked (and as always I reserve but never pay in advance). I'll note that the SLC location is way offsite. The shuttle bus is at the far end of the on-airport car rental facility, and I only waited a few minutes for the shuttle. On the upside, because it is so far away from the airport you don't pay the on-site rental facility surcharges.

The Alamo car was less expensive than the other choices and worked out well. First in line to rent (no wait) and no problems with the return. The car was getting a bit long in the tooth for a rental, 36K miles, and showed some rental wear, but it got the job done. Surprisingly good experience all in all.

The car has defective washer fluid projectors and it was very stormy and I could not see in the freeway. When I called to tell them about it they were not concerned and asked ME to take it to a shop to have it looked at. I was in town for work and they wanted me to use work time to have THEIR car repaired. I was livid. I finally after 50 minutes on hold got a replacement car at another facility.

Thrifty was very efficient with drop off. Unfortunately, if they would let us review insurance options prior to pickup or with online reservation, the process would be faster. And really...$50-60 a day for insurance?? Insurance would have been more than the entire rental. I would have liked to verify with my own car insurance, prior to or at online reservation, since each state is different for coverage. Otherwise, the experience was easy and efficient.
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2022
Did not have a great experience via Priceline. Stood in line for over an a hour for a car for them to tell me my reservation wasn’t complete even though I prepaid for the car. Thrifty said I needed a voucher with an it number as well as another number. Had a Priceline travel specialist on the phone for 40 mins and they had no clue what thrifty was talking about. I had to rent a car via thrifty directly and pay them to get a car and request a refund through Priceline since at this point I have paid for 2 cars. No idea if I will actually receive the refund.
2.0 MediocreApr 2 2022
Car was not ready when I arrived, even though I was an hour and a half later than I said I would be because of flight delay. They said it would take at least a half an hour to get my car ready, said there would be no USB port in the car or any ability to charge a cell phone in it, and they would not upgrade me to another car at the same price. When I canceled my reservation, they refused to refund my money, because I had made the reservation through an online service - even though it was Thrifty that had charged me. A bad experience overall.

Pickup at SLC was a mess. Instructions said to take off-site shuttle. But after waiting (with 3 kids) for over half an hour I called and was told there was no off-site shuttle running that day an to go to another place. Went to that place was redirected somewhere else. Took forever!! So frustrating. Then had to wait in line for over 30 minutes. Not an easy process.

The insurance offered on the kayak site wasn't accepted by dollar. I learned this after flying and attempt to pick up the car. Kayak said my total, with insurance and another driver would be $444. When I picked up the car, and they would accept the $55 insurance that I had already paid for, the total was $950. This included an $200 deposit that they said I'll get back, but even still $750. I will never do business with dollar or kayak again. The $55 insurance was refunded. They told me it's a third party company that works with kayak, but the actual rental company can choose to not accept it. I'm so pissed. On the day I picked up the rental, no other company had any cars available, so I had no choice but to be screwed by these shady people. Take your business elsewhere or just don't go through kayak. I don't have a lot of money, this vacation was a well budgeted luxury. Enjoy my money, I guarantee I need it more than you.
2.0 MediocreFeb 5 2022
I lost my credit card that I originally booked rental with Priceline (Kayak), and neither Dollar, nor Priceline would allow me to use my Visa debit card, or switch to my travel companions name and credit card. I was forced to switch to Hertz with no reservation, which cost me $475 for a one day rental versus the $213 I originally paid through Priceline (Kayak). I spoke with several customer service agents from both Dollar and Priceline, and they were all powerless to connect me to my reserved and paid for car sitting 50 feet away from the counter agent.

Picking up at SLC takes way too long. Check in counter is slow and agents are unfamiliar with system and process and as a result take way too much time
2.0 MediocreJan 21 2022
We landed in Salt Lake City and had already paid for our rental car weeks in advance. We got to the dollar counter and they told us we did not have a car available even though we already paid for one. There was nothing they could do to help. So, we had to go to several other rental car companies and pay twice as much to get a vehicle.
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2022
I had a huge trip to go to out of state. Prepaid on Kayak but when I got to airport to pick up car major issues happened. Because my ID used Timothy and c.c used Tim they would not release. Kayak also would not change reservation to a person in my group who's name matched exactly. After a long fight I just rebooked with Dollar direct but cost me over one thousand more. Would never use again.

Convenient pick up walking off SLC airport terminal. Long line, about 30 minute wait. They were overcommitted with number of cars vs number of customers and did not have our truck ready. They promised to resolve the issue in 20 minutes of additional wait and did so in 15 minutes. They upgraded us to a larger truck as a gesture. They did well under the circumstances
2.0 MediocreMar 27 2022
Waited in line for an hour and 20 minutes for my pre reserved car apparently because Avis was understaffed and didn’t have enough cars. Will not be back. Every other car rental counter had no lines. All signs point to mismanagement and lack of care for the customers.

We were supposed to get a mid-sized SUV. We got a Jeep again. It did not have all-wheel or 4 wheel drive as they normally do and which we needed for snow in the mountains. I don't think a Jeep even can qualify as a mid-sized SUV. There is little leg room for the driver which could be dangerous if he has to react quickly. The guy at pick up was not particularly interested in our needs. Drop-off was another story. The man there was very polite and efficient. Fortunately there was no line ahead of us. That part I would rate excellent. I plan never to use Avis again however, because this is the second time we've asked for a mid-sized SUV and they've given us a Jeep which does not handle slippery mountain roads well .

The car was nice. And complimentary shuttle was great.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 ExcellentDec 9 2019
The rate was great and I like that they had Toyota Sequoias.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.

I will never rent from Advantage again.

The difference in size between a Tahoe ( which we requested) and a Durango (which we got) is about 20 square feet of space for our ski trip.

2.0 MediocreFeb 14 2022
They didn’t have the car we reserved. We needed a full sized SUV and they offered us a pick up truck or a Camry. The response at the desk was “we give our cars out first come first served” - which I am pretty sure is the opposite of a reservation. They were unwilling to compensate us in any way for the issue (literally said we could take or leave the cars, at the same price as the full sized SUV, but that the entire airport was sold out so “good luck”). They said we could call customer service and see about some sort of refund. Overall the one thing they need to do is give you the car you reserved and paid for. FAIL.

Very smooth. We were able to upgrade to a Yukon for $10 extra per day. It was a very quick and easy process. Shuttle to and from airport was quick.

The staff was good. The car was great but I do not think I will use them again.I am not sure why I was charge an extra $35 over the price $75 I prepaid for two days at $25/day. I did not notice it was a "shuttle" service to pick up the car and it took a while to find the pick up spot. No fun since they did not answer phone.

the first rental car I had shut off when I was driving down a hill. After feeling like the car was dangerous I went to exchange cars at the rental agency. I was treated with disrespect and without any apologies from this less than ideal situation.

Pretty poor pickup/customer serviceThe car was clean/in good condition. The price was reasonable.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.

The associate was very helpful in explaining everything.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.

The staff was amazing, I wish I got His name but he was super helpful, very efficient and super friendly.I think the cost could be more up front, I wasnt aware of the deposit. I know It was probably somewhere in the agreement, but other than that it was great.

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 OkayJun 24 2020
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

Car was okay, a little dirt on floors.We weren't notified that we needed to call to be picked up at the airport. Leaving, we had a 10:00 flight and they don't open until 8:00. No one showed up until somewhere around 8:15 as we were being picked up by the Uber driver we were force to call.

Rental counter is located inside a Ramada inn which is being renovated. Look past that and everything's just fine.
4.8 OkayMar 30 2019
No information provided re; you must in call for Airport pick up. Shuttle easy to miss being a red GMC van with NO signage on sides (like all the other companies) - only a curling paper sign in window on drivers side.Sketchy location. Seedy Ramada Inn room with badly stained carpet. Replace with nicer wood/tile flooring. Need signage out front for AVR, signage needed on Shuttle Van, instructions clearly stating need to call Airport for Shuttle pick-up on confitmation email.
2.0 MediocreMar 25 2019
NothingThey called as i was getting on the flight to go to the destination telling me they didn't have the type of car available. They also informed they were closing at 6 pm. My flight was going to land at 6:30. They could not accommodate. I had to scramble and rent from Budget. Terrible.

4wd unavailableEverything was quick and nice customer service but unhelpful that they only had 4vehicles to choose from.My husband called an hour before pickup to make sure they had 4wd or allwheel. Instead of just checking to verify, they said oh there is a 95% Chance there will be a one. Well I arrived with 4 vehicles to choose from. None 4wd or awd. Very frustrating since I had to drive to Denver in a snow storm. would have went with another company had i known. It’s Utah, please have 4wd vehicles.

Charged TwiceGreat CarI was charged twice for my rental car and was not offered any help. I showed the woman helping me when i was picking up the car that I had been charged twice, yet she assured me that one of the charges would disappear. The charge never dropped and it took away all of the money I had for my weekend. I called back the next day to ask if they can help, and they said it was up to me to fix it and I had to call my bank to figure it out.

FIREFLY CLOSED EARLYWe were not given a chance to use them.Our flight arrived at 1:15AM and Firefly's hours were until 2:00 AM. 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.

There is fine print to the fine print if you are picking up locally. There isn’t unlimited mileage on their cars. You can pay per mile or per day which effectively doubled my rental cost. I cancelled and went to another rental car company.

Top tips for renting a car in Salt Lake City

  • Planning on picking up a rental car after landing at Salt Lake City International Airport? Getting to the rental car center is simple; just exit the main terminal and head to the parking garage across from it -- you will find the rental 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.
