Location is good. Did not have specified car upon arrival and the one they assigned was not comfortable or large enough.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2022
My car was cancelled last minute and they did not put much effort into making something work for me. it put me in a tough spot.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2022
No cars, overbooked, bad attitude. Made me late for my trip, and after a long talk with the manager, they said it was a corporate problem with overbooking, said that if they were me, rather than wait for hours and hope a car is returned, they would go down the street and rent from Enterprise, which I did, paid $30 extra and Enterprise got a car delivered from another location to help me.

They were closed when I arrived but took my reservation . I had to get another Uber and go to the Phoenix airport to rent a car and waited in an hour long line. I would like hertz to pay god my Uber rides

When I showed up 5 minutes prior to my pick up time, they told they didn’t have a car available for me nor did they have any solution. They still haven’t refunded me my money. I will never book with Hertz again.

Scottsdale location was great. That is where I picked up the car. I dropped off the car in Las Vegas at the hertz location inside treasure island. That was terrible.

I wish the Hertz office was open earlier on Saturday and Sunday.
2.0 MediocreMar 21 2022
Hertz called me 12 hours before my pick up time and said they had no cars. But then they still charged my account for the rental I never had! They told me they didn’t charge me but my account said otherwise. I had to call my credit card company to dispute the charge the day I was supposed to rent the car. Absolute headache and they did not care. Very unsatisfied with Hertz and will never use them again!!!
4.0 OkayMar 13 2022
Upon arrival at Hertz, we were not greeted. There seemed to be a total of 3 staff working. I observed 2 male staff members working with other clients, while the 3rd employee (female) saw us, didn’t say anything (I.e “I’ll be right with you”) and went into the bathroom. Once she came out I made eye contact and said “hello” and she immediately said “someone else will be right with you” while she continued to stand at the front desk, doing nothing. This was very frustrating. Eventually one of the male staff members, Marquee I believe, came to help us and apologized for the female employees unprofessionalism. Marquee was great, once he got the process started we were out in 10 mins. Kuddos to him!
2.0 MediocreFeb 12 2022
returned the car 5 days early, and was denied any refund because it had been rented and paid for through a third party.. will never rent through hertz or kayak again.

Drop off and pick up was super easy. The car was brand new, clean, and had every feature I wanted.Would love to be able to communicate with customer support over the phone but instead you can only speak with a robot. Good luck getting to speak with anyone if you have questions or issues.
3.6 MediocreNov 19 2020
The pickup/drop off location person (Marc) was very nice and did what he could to help but his hands were tied by the company limiting what he was able to do.The first car we got had mechanical issues and we had to return it 10 minutes after leaving the shop. The second vehicle we got had major mechanical issues. We had to drive 30 minutes back to the shop. The third vehicle we got was a sedan not an SUV which is what we requested when making the reservation. I have lodged a complaint with customer service and have asked for a full credit. We spent a total of 4.5 hours going back and forth trying to get into a safe, working vehicle. We lost an entire day of travel and did not end up with an SUV which was challenging for some of the places we visited. We were not able to go to certain places in the sedan because those locations required four wheel drive to access. Overall it was not a good experience. A car rental company of this caliber should have properly working and safe vehicles for their customers. The individual locations should be able to offer more customer service and better solutions for their clients. Sixt is over-priced for what they claim to offer and I hope that customer service will recognized the failures. The vehicles were unsafe which put us at risk and our vacation plans were significantly altered due to not having four whell drive. Very disappointing.
10.0 ExcellentAug 2 2020
Yes and Yes....Didn't know I needed to put a $200 deposit down until right before I was leaving. Other than that, all was GREAT!
7.6 GoodJul 23 2020
Staff was VERY goodMy confirmation and reservation clearly stated unlimited mileage but when I arrived the counter said it absolutely was not and informed me that i could not leave the State
2.0 MediocreJul 13 2020
The staff was so rude when we went to pick it up. I will never use the company again.Any and all restrictions need to be disclosed on the website at booking. Especially if there are geographical restrictions.
2.0 MediocreJul 7 2020
NothingThe staff was rude and not helpful at all. We booked the van to travel from Arizona to Idaho for a family reunion which we told them when we picked it up. After we got the van and were on our way, we read through the contract which noted that Idaho was out of the regional area that the vehicle was allowed to travel in. We tried and tried to get a hold of somebody at Sixt. No one answered the phone, and we waited on hold for over an hour. We emailed them and did not get any response for more than 24 hours. And the response did not at all address our concerns. We ended up leaving the van at a friends house and taking a different vehicle on up to Idaho for our reunion. It was a huge inconvenience! I will never, ever rent from Sixt again!

Very disappointed with pickup. Car was not available and I, along with others, we’re waiting in a line waiting for cars to be returned and cleaned before getting our car and leaving the airport. After a seamless and on time flight, it was very frustrating to have to wait for a rental car to become available.

Had to use the car extra days and staff was super helpful.Letting the customer know that they could pick up and drop off at other locations. I needed a ride 7 miles away. I was told they could not take me over 4 miles. The facility was understaffed but polite.

4.4 OkayJun 14 2020
Vehicle originally rented was not available and the replacement option was not luxury....the replacement (van )took over 1.5 hours to get ready. The inside of the van was filthy dirty and I had to personally disinfect it before our trip. The salesman offered an 8 % discount which was not worth switching vehicle types. With covid going on, I assumed the cleaning process would be more through to prevent the spread.

10.0 ExcellentJul 25 2021
My car had former damage that lead to a wheel rub when turning. It also smelled like smoke. Neither of which were the fault of the pick up attendant. She didn’t get the car until night before my pick up . When I turned in the car there wasn’t anyone there to talk to and I still haven’t received a final receipt.

9.2 ExcellentMay 7 2018
Good car, great value for the amount of time that used the SUV.Chris Frieh the agency operator was finally able to get a SUV for me. But he could never commit when there would be an SUV available. In fact, I took an SUV that was returned with 3/4 tank of gas and not cleaned because I needed to leave right at noon.
9.2 ExcellentJun 21 2017
Not quite was we ordered but a great dealStaff in Scottsdale were super nice and the price was great.Pick-up spot had a very limited selection of vehicles. Upgrade was ridiculously priced - meant to deter us from taking it because it was a one way rental.

Horrible experience! We were scheduled to pick up our car at 2 on the 8th. Our flight ran about 20 minutes late but when we arrived at the Avis location there was a note on the door that they closed at 2. We called Avis and they told us there was nothing they could do about it. We called the local office the next morning and they told us they did not have any vehicles for us so we just cancelled. Why didn't the office call us on the 8th to let us know they were closing and to make arrangements for us to pick up a vehicle at another location? Definitely will not be using Avis again!
6.0 GoodFeb 18 2021
Not much. Car was okay.Didn't get the car I requested. Received a big gas guzzling SUV instead. Gas tank was only about 3/4 full. Returned the car with a full tank and was expecting some type of credit. Attendant Mike T. laughed and said no, but thanks for filling up the car! Writing letter to AVIS. Not a happy customer.

Top tips for renting a car in Scottsdale

  • Whether you’re bouncing between the many golf courses Scottsdale has to offer, venturing into Phoenix situated southwest of the city, or exploring Tonto National Forest, by renting a car you can do all of the above conveniently within your own timeframe. The area is best explored with a car, so enjoy the many great things Scottsdale has to offer by renting a car.
  • Travelers who arrive in Scottsdale at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport will be pleased to know that there are several rental car agencies on the grounds. Start your journey free of stress by renting a car directly at the airport and be in Scottsdale in about twenty minutes via the N Scottsdale Road. The rental car center is located in its own building and there is a shuttle operating between the terminals and the rental center. The bus stops are outside the terminals, past the baggage claim area.
  • Especially during summer, monsoons can occur regularly in Scottsdale and the whole of Arizona, and they bring heavy rain showers, strong winds, and dust storms – all of which can severely impair visibility. Should you drive into such a monsoon, try to find a safe place to park the car and wait until it has abated. Also do not drive into flooded areas, usually marked with a warning sign, or the car can lose traction and you will need to be towed out of the flooded area.
  • Rush hours in Scottsdale occur at 6-9 am and 5-7 pm, where traffic, specifically between Scottsdale and Phoenix, can increase dramatically. Try to avoid driving through the city during these times, and especially when heading to the airport, allow plenty of extra time (at least two hours), so you don’t miss your flight.
