The cost could have been mower. Not sure it was worth more than $100 per day.

This was the first time in my 75 years to rent a vehicle that was on empty. I had to stop for gas as soon as I left Enterprise because it was on "E". Then I received no credit for the quarter tank on the return.

Nothing! Worst interaction I’ve ever had with ANY business! After 4 hours of waiting for a pickup, they brought me to a location that only had trucks and mini-vans available when my reservation was for a small economy car. Then they had the nerve to get upset with me for being mad! Nobody ever apologized!They could have been up front from the start and told me either that they didn’t have the type of car I reserved, or that they couldn’t provide pickup. Instead, they led me on a wild goose for 4 hours (!) and never delivered.

Our experience was exceptional. The price quote was spot on & the service provided was very customer experience oriented. Told them that Enterprise will certainly eon our radar for car rental(s) in the future.

Hour and a half wait at pick upCar was clean and comfortable.Hour and a half wait. No instructions on where to go after check in. Charged $20 more than booking price (after tax and fees).
5.2 OkayApr 5 2017
Vehicle was clean.Staff was not helpful in describing different types of insurance and felt pressured into buying insurance. Were charged extra to change the drop-off point to the Airport because our flight times were changed and we didn't have enough time to drop it off at our pick up location. Employee on the phone was also not very knowledgeable or helpful.
10.0 ExcellentApr 4 2017
Great priceGreat price and the manager called later in the day to see how the rental was and see if we had any issues with it. Told us to go to the nearest location which he gave us the address and told us to exchange it for another one and they did great customer service

Staff at the pick up was friendly, on the contrary at the drop off was tough and stiff and not customer oriented as a matter of fact he wasn’t to care about how customer feels. I think he never heard about customer satisfaction and wasn’t trained properlyNothing could be better except the staff at the drop off you can definitely have a better customer oriented who care about customer satisfaction and customer feelings
10.0 ExcellentMar 18 2017
Very pleased with the rental process, from pick upThe service was fine. The free upgrade to a Ford Explorer was unexpected, but much enjoyed. A great vehicle! The whole process worked out very well.

Great carEnded up getting the car one a short notice and ended up with a great new car. Picked it up in Tempe and returned it the next day at the airport. Received prompt service at both locations. the car was very clean and drove very wellThe one day rental rate was a bit expensive
10.0 ExcellentOct 25 2016
Awesome!Car was very clean when we picked it up. The employees were friendly and exceptionally helpful. Bonus points for letting us keep the rental for 3 extra hours at no charge. Would definitely recommend to others and use them personally again!

They didn’t actually have a car to rent. I’ll never use KAYAK again.

The people were friendly and accommodating. I had my 3-year-old with me, so service was super quick and efficient. Plus, she got cookies - so she was a happy camper. I'd definitely go again.

Great location to pick up a car that is not at the airport. Friendly staff. Had to wait to long in a line of only 3 people. The employee redeemed himself with me by offering to just take the keys and email the receipt before helping the next customer. That was helpful and attentive to my needs. It was definitely a good fit for someone who needs a car in Phoenix and does not need an airport rental.

Rental of SUVGood on gas Ran goodThe Hertz desk person was rude, not very friendly. The SUV was dirty inside and not washed. I had to clean the windshield to get all the dead bugs off. I was given a vehicle that was just returned. The desk person should of made sure it was clean and could of been a little more pleasant. He didn't even walk around the vehicle to check if it was ok, told me to take pictures. He was not friendly picking up or dropping off the vehicle.

The Agent for Hertz at Residence Inn by Marriott TempeThe agent at Residence Inn by Marriott Tempe was extremely rude and didn't give us the car on time. We were 30 mins late and the agent made me wait and didn't give me the approximate time the car will be given to me. I had to go to the doctor so I left the place.

Top tips for renting a car in Tempe

  • Car rentals are convenient when maneuvering in and around Tempe, helping get to where you need to go with flexibility and personal space. You can check out comedy shows, dances, and concerts at the Tempe Center for Arts in the town or drive to the Arizona Museum of Natural History, located around 7 miles from Tempe in the neighboring Mesa area. If you are traveling with family, obtaining a van from car rentals in Tempe allows you to visit Papago Park, around 3 miles from Downtown Tempe, where you can bike, hike, or have a picnic.
  • You can get to Tempe via the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), located around 4 miles from the city. The airport has a Car Rental Center containing different companies, such as Alamo, Avis, Fox Rent-A-Car, NU Car Rentals, and Thrifty. You can reach this center using the Car Rental Shuttle that stops every few minutes at the sidewalk on every terminal's baggage claim levels. Ensure to book your vehicle before your trip, because car rentals in Tempe and the Phoenix area have high demand, limiting walk-up clients' options.
  • Tempe has a well-constructed transportation system, mainly featuring freeways such as the US 60, facilitating efficient movement within and outside the city. You can opt to install a navigation system in your Tempe car rental to increase your confidence and avoid getting lost among the town's multiple streets. The city has seen a few cases of jaywalking accidents, so you want to keep an eye out for cyclists and pedestrians.
  • The afternoon rush hour generally starts around 3pm and worsens at 5:30pm. In the morning, the congestion lasts from approximately 6am to 9am, getting heaviest at around 8am. If you want convenient time management, it is best to wait until 6pm or leaving much earlier than scheduled. In particular, you want to stay away from the I-10 Highway that creates a lot of traffic at the exits.
