There is also the Cathedral Rock Trail, which can be reached by car in around 25 minutes.

  • You must adhere to the strict Sedona’s child seat laws anytime you are driving your rental car accompanied by your kid(s). If your child is less than 1 year old or weighs below 20 pounds, ensure they are in a rear-facing seat. Those between 1 year and 5 years old must always travel in a child safety seat. When you are picking up your car from any of the cheap car rentals in Sedona, ensure you request to have the appropriate restraint device fitted. However, you should remember that getting a booster seat, child safety seat, infant seat, or any child restraint device attracts an additional daily charge.

Ensure you have a valid driver’s license and a major credit or debit card in your possession when you are coming to pick up your rental car. Both the cards and the license should be in your name.

KAYAK

Pros:

They were able to deliver the car to my hotel and slightly reduce the online rate due to an arrangement with the hotel.

Cons:

I was "upgraded" to a Ford SUV. I do not like SUVs and this one was particularly poorly designed in keeping with the majority of American-made cars. More expensive on gas, a detriment to the environment, and a shoddy car (bigger is rarely better).

Pros:

Clean Car. BUT NOTHING makes up for the 1 1/2 hour delay at the check out counter.

Cons:

One hour and 35 minutes in line !!!! When I joined the line there were approx 40 people in line. When I finally got the car, there were about still 50 in line Only three (sometimes four) counter personnel !!

Pros:

The car was in good shape, friendly service.

Cons:

Car wasn't ready and I had to wait to get it cleaned. Also, I expended another 90.00 for car insurance that was pushed on me last minute and they told me it would be a 500.00 deposit to not have the insurance. I was also asked to pick out a car " I liked" in person when I already chose a price package online before pickup. I waited about 45 minutes to get out with the car, and had to wait while the car inspector measured a small scratch on the bumper when I returned though I took extreme care of the car on my 48 mile 3-day rental. The car was not examined thoroughly or by the same person when I picked the car up.

Brian made the arrangements for pickup at the Sedona general aviation airport a breeze. Everything worked as advertised even with the confusion if a road construction project at the airport with which Enterprise had to deal. Stupendous customer service and great value for money.

Pros:

Nothing. They didn't have a car for me. I booked online, I payed the deposit, I showed up to pick up the car and they told me they didn't have anything for me, that they wouldn't honor my booking, wouldn't refund my deposit, and I was forced to spend $250 to buy a ticket for a 26 minute flight.

Cons:

Everything. Having the car that I booked, and if not, refunding the deposit.
