Car was fine, no problems. Rental agent in SLC was unfriendly and cold.. also slow and non-communicative. He was sullen and seemed angry. He didn’t talk, or explain anything regarding the agreement, car or directions. A very unpleasant experience!

Easy drop off and rental return is right across from Delta terminal.Only problem we had is that the published information on the Salt Lake City location did not indicate they were open 24 hours. I had trouble multiple times connecting to an associate and then ultimately call dropped. When I was able to speak to a person she told me they were open 24 hours so we didn't need to follow the off hours drop off process

My rental experience was terrible. We arrived at the Thrify desk to a sign that said proceed to the parking garage. When we got there there was no one there. We waited with a group of other customers to no avail so we returned upstairs. Then we realized that although there is a thrifty counter they were operating out of the Dollar rental desk. But nobody told us! So by the time we realized we had to wait in an awful long line at the Dollar counter. It took us an hour to wait. The car itself was terrible. It was clean but the rotars caused vibrations when breaking down Parleys Canyon and I was going a reasonable speed. Never again.
4.0 OkayOct 24 2021
The pickup situation was terrible, but dropoff was a smooth process. For pick up, I had to wait in line for an hour and a half to find out that Hertz could have helped me (and did end up helping me). I felt bad for other people in line who were going to miss funerals and Doctors appointments. They really should have a kiosk option of they are going to be that short staffed.

There was a very long ling at the pickup counter and a significant delay in receiving the vehicle. It was very nice that the attendant gave us a free upgrade to a slightly larger vehicle.
1.9 HorribleSep 2 2021
Regardless of when you reserve a pick up time, they ask you to wait 30-45 minutes and day it's because you reserved on the same day as pick up. I've never encountered this w any company and if that's their policy, they should make it clear and provide that info when you reserve. They also try to force insurance and act as though it's mandatory, it is not. Tricky, slow and inaccurate are the best descriptors for Thrifty's rental experience.
4.0 OkayJul 1 2021
The suburban we rented was in good shape and we had no mechanical issues while rentingIt took an hour to pick up despite having a reservation because it was being cleaned. Once picked up it smelt heavily of smoke. We were also charged a hefty concession fee not noted in the original quote.
8.0 ExcellentJun 2 2021
It was a nice new clean car.Pickup is very slow. A long line, with only two desk agents. Why do they ask all the same questions I already entered in when I made the reservation? They should have my name, address, phone number, drivers' license, and credit card. Just give me the keys, please. It shouldn't take nearly as long as it takes.

The car smelled very heavily of cigarette smoke. The agent really pressured us into buying the insurance. He lied to us about an attendant being there early in the morning when we were going to drop the car and stated that I would be responsible for any damages from the time of drop off until they opened in the morning. Price was definitely reasonable. Line was short. On a scale of one to ten I’d give them a five.

The change oil light was on when I picked up the car, as well as garbage from the previous renter.
4.0 OkayOct 20 2021
Within a day and a half (less than 200 miles), the car warning system said Change Oil Soon. Ok, not that big of a deal. However, by Saturday (day 4 1/2) the warning switched to Oil Change Required. The message came on every 15/30 minutes. Unfortunately we were in a remote area near Bryce Canyon. We called the Dollar Roadside Assistance number, and they offered poor options... come switch for another car, etc. Finally the nice woman asked if we could go get the oil changed. The problem was it was now Saturday afternoon with no service stations or bigger towns nearby. We did get to see Bryce Canyon, but had to cancel the rest of our Saturday plans because we did not want to continue on the scenic route in the middle of nowhere with the potential to burn up the engine. We took the shortest route we could to Richfield, UT (where our Saturday night hotel reservations were). The extremely nice hotel clerk helped us... she called Walmart and they agreed to stay open until we got there after 6 pm to change the oil. While the car ran fine and Dollar did reimburse us for the oil change, obviously there was poor maintenance when they would send out a car needing an oil change so quickly! Our Saturday plans got ruined and it added to a very stressful day!

We took pictures of scratches and damage to car prior to exiting Dollar lot and notified checkout clerk. She agreed to note it on the electronic contract but never did. Upon return of car in Las Vegas they wanted to charge me for repairs until I showed visible proof on my camera of prior damage done by others. A warning to others to insist on proof that the check out process of inspection is approved and certified by Dollar.
1.9 HorribleSep 20 2021
When we deplaned and got into the over 1 1/2 hour wait in line of over 50 people to get our car everyone was rumbling that there were no cars available for 2 more hours. After enduring that, Once we got sent down to the garage to get our car it was not in the spot assigned. Waited another 20 minutes for someone to bring something up, which was not what we were assigned. They said "Take it, it's all we got". ** The drop off location (in another city) was listed incorrectly. The address given for drop off was in the middle of the "HOOD" #GHETTO. We had to google the nearest Dollar and just take it there.
3.9 MediocreSep 15 2021
Pick up was a mess. There were dozens of people/groups with reservations and it was clear that Dollar had over booked and did not have nearly enough cars for those present. I happened to luck out that the one car they had left was a van (which I had reserved in advance) by the time I got to the front of the line, which took ~2 hours in the middle of the afternoon on a Thursday. In addition, the car itself had clearly not been totally cleaned (a wrapper and napkin were in the back seat).
1.9 HorribleSep 14 2021
When I arrived at the airport at 8:30 p.m. I was told they had overbooked and there was no car available for me. I was told that they would reimburse me the cost of an Uber each way from my hotel and could come back in the morning to pick up my car. I was told I would be reimbursed for the lost day. When I returned at 7 a.m. the next morning none of those promises were kept. I was told to ask kayak for repayment of the lost day and I was given a voucher toward my next rental for the Uber costs. Big deal! I don't see me renting from Dollar Car Rental again.

So the car I got had definitely not been cleaned - there was pop explosion debris from the tailgate to the front seat. Front tires were nearly bald, a back tire wouldn't stay inflated, and the driver's side window got stuck in the down position if it was cold outside. When I passed this along to the check-in clerk there was no apology, no offer to adjust rate, just a note to take the car out of service - IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN IN SERVICE! I will not use Payless/Avis again.

1.9 HorribleSep 30 2021
(1) No car was available despite having a confirmed reservation. No car, we were told, would be available within a day. We were left in the cold, along with other customers at Payless. (2) No one at Payless offered, let alone actually helped us locate another car. (3) Despite the fact that Payless/Kayak cancelled the reservation, I was charged the $77 for insurance. (4) I was lucky to get the last car available at the SLC airport BUT for $1100 additional ($1691 vs. $590), and a vehicle I would never have chosen otherwise. I hope your customer care people will reply to this message. I will be taking action to correct these errors; a company whose purpose is purportedly hospitality is not going to do well if it permits atrocious occurrences such as this. Yes, things go wrong sometime. But, in those cases, you are responsible for addressing them, and to anticipate how to serve your customers - or lose them.
1.9 HorribleSep 29 2021
Payless said that while I had a valid reservation, that they could not honor it as they had no cares. Worse yet, others had prepaid their car rentals, and they could not provide them with a car either. Honestly the man behind the counter tried to help by finding other cars at other agencies, but in the end, he suggested people either go on line to reserve with another agency or just wait in line and find out what they had. What makes my case even more impactful as my mom was in hospice and I was heading to see her for last visit. A did get there in time, so all good there, but the added stress of arriving after 7 hours of flying, only to be told, essentially, sucks to be you... not a brand I will trust again.
1.9 HorribleSep 20 2021
2 hour wait for the counter staff, 1 hour wait to get the wrong car. Extremely overpriced. Staff was the most robotic, uncaring group ever encountered.

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.

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.

Drop off was easyUpon pickup staff was rude and even though I reserved and paid for one thing was told that I could not have that unless I paid more because I wasn’t from out of town. There should be additional questions when booking so that you are aware of the price diu long upon pickup and so you’re not thinking the price you paid at reservation was it when it wasn’t. I will never rent from Advantage again.

1.9 HorribleOct 17 2021
Had to wait in an hour long line after already having a reservation. Once I got to the counter, I was asked basic or extra coverage, not “or you can waive this.” In my rush after waiting so long, I just said basic. When I saw the charges were different from my reservation after I was given a car, I went to the kiosk and asked why there was a difference. I was told it was the basic coverage. I then asked her to remove it because I have insurance and was told, “sorry, I can’t do anything about it.” On top of that, the car was not a midsize suv. It was so cramped and we could barely fit everything in there. They tire you out just to get you to sign everything and refuse to change it. Unfortunately, there were no other rentals, so I was forced to take the car. I will NEVER use Avis again. I’d rather pay twice as much somewhere else and actually get what I paid for.
3.9 MediocreOct 16 2021
You SLC staff was disappointing. From arrival the agent was the only agent at that time and he lacked friendliness. It was just pick up your documents and get out. Picking up the car I had a tire warning light showing so I walked to the garage office to get some assistance. The agent was sitting on a chair leaning against the wall with shades on at 6am looking like I was bothering him. He didn’t stand to address me only told me it’s cold and the sensor will go away or that “I need to drive to a gas station and fill air”. That was piss poor customer service, if you don’t want to work and just want to enjoy your high, quit and stop waiting customers hard earned money and time. SLC needs a huge training on customer service and how to meet or exceed customer expectations. We ain’t asking much, just for a clean vehicle and a smile. A bonus would be their local suggestion on must eat or see places. I know this little survey will go un-noticed but I wish you would look and actually address.

Waited another hour to get into another vehicle AND billed twice for the car. AND price not what I booked it at….it was 3x the price I booked at. Very disappointing experience would not recommend renting through Avis. Have called 2 managers to get help with on the reimbursement of being billed twice for the same car and NO return call from either. Was told they couldn’t do anything at the location when I told them I had been billed twice and for different amounts. Was going to dispute the credit card bill and was told if I did I would have to go back upstairs and start over. Poor service and upstairs is a double booking cars. Terrible and NOW trying to get my account refunded for over $1,600 charged for one for 4 days.

The car was comfortable and clean. I'm disappointed with the car maintenance. The car had over 36000 miles and needed new tires. I wasn't aware of this until I needed to add air to the tires. I told the mechanic it was a rental car prior to filling the tires. He told me to be sure to tell AVIS.

Terrible experience with Budget Car Rental. I will never consider using them again. Due to staffing issues, they had a 90 minute line at SLC. I waited for 30 minutes before leaving the line and finding a car with another company. I tried to call Budget’s customer service multiple times and even the day before on something else. Anytime you feel they are just about to connect, the line disconnects. Terrible company. Clearly have no interest in their customers.

It looked to us like most people in line were being given the same sell. It felt to me like a big bait and switch. The upgrade was a nice small BMW SUV but I didn’t want to pay for it. I just wanted my original rental and the original price. But I didn’t want to wait another 1/2 hour plus.To have my reservation ready when I arrived.

I got to budget at my reservation time at the airport. The main counter was closed. A sign said to go to the place you pick up/return cars. There was one person there checking in cars. I showed him my reservation and he said they sold out all ther cars the night before at 8:00. He said he could do nothing for me. I told him I had a reservation and wouldn’t leave til I got a car. He said that maybe a car would be cleaned at 8:00 AM. I told him I had an 8:00 meeting 1/2 hour away. He then told me I could rent “one of these BMW SUV’s now” I said at the Reservation rate? He said, “no, their rate is $190 /day..” unbelievable. I took an Uber to my meeting and did not have a car for three days. Never again with Budget. Most unbelievable travel experience I have had, really, and I’ve been to some somewhat sketchy places in the world.See above

Had a hard time finding the shuttle.
2.0 MediocreNov 20 2021
The shuttle to pick up was dirty/and the handle is broke to the door. You can't get out from the inside. Once there, the rental car was filthy and stained inside & out, as well as dented and scratched every where. I was told by the front desk to just take pictures for my protection (which I did). I asked an attendant to clean the inside of the driver side window from the last driver's arm gunk & he was rude and condescending. The drop off of the car was not any better. I couldn't get a physical receipt, when asked for. While waiting for the shuttle, another couple came to wait as well. One of the attendants almost ran over the wife while parking one of the cars. Her husband grabbed her out of the way just in time. When confronted by the couple, he started swearing and saying what are you going to do about it. When the wife went inside to complain, they just told the attendant to leave & they would handle her. He did leave and was swearing & threatening the husband while walking off property. Once the shuttle arrived, there is a sign saying due to injury he cannot help with bags, but of course there is a jar and another sign saying tips are greatly appreciated. This was the second time I have used this rental service. It is now the last time. Just the wait for the shuttles & the quality of cars alone is enough for me to pay extra next time not to ever use them again.

If I had known they weren’t at the airport and their shuttoe would come every 30 minutes, I wouldn’t have rented with them. I decided to go with Alamo

The experience at the pickup wasn’t the best, not very professional. The drop off at the park and jet was awful. The attendant was hateful, directions were unclear and as my daughter said the whole set up was sketchy. It turned out ok but won’t be using them again.

Friendly, helpful and accommodatingOur flight was delayed and we were unable to contact the rental office due to cell phone failure. They saved our car for us over night even though they had no other vehicles available for other customers. And they were so pleasant when we finally showed up, 15 hours later than we had planned.

The counter person refused to apply my gold membership to the rental, which meant a lower grade car, giving me some bs about "it must have been associated with the wrong credit card". Then pushed hard to sell me a prepaid tank of gas, claiming gas was more expensive at the drop off city than the pickup. Which was also bs.
3.9 MediocreSep 22 2021
The payment process at the counter was inadequate because they could only swipe my charge card and the the charge card I wanted to use would not take swiping. It was the card that provided collision coverage. I attempted to use this card at a later date with a contact that could charge to this card and reverse the charge to the original card used back at the counter at the airport. I was unable to do this according to Hertz. so I was left with no collision coverage. Secondly I want to change my drop off location in Las Vegas to a different hotel. I was told at the Treasure Island locale that this was not possible. It seemed to me there was no help to be had on any issue. I was rather disappointed in the lack of any help.
1.9 HorribleSep 19 2021
This was unfortunately my first and last time renting with Hertz. Check in was very unorganized and exceptionally long and everyone was communicating the same frustration in line before the line was relocated downstairs. In all of my travels and in much larger volume airports, I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
7.9 GoodAug 23 2021
Two week rental, pickup in one state and drop off in another state was extremely expensive!
1.9 HorribleAug 3 2021
Not a great experience. Not renting from Hertz ever again. The pick up worker was extremely nice which was the only positive of the entire experience. The wait at the airport pick up was 1.5 hours. The car wasn’t very clean, the oil change/maintenance light was on. The drop off person was rude and not helpful.
5.9 OkayJul 11 2021
Car was NOT clean. Was vacuumed but not wiped down - sticky spots. Customer service not the best at drop off location. 9.99 for gas/gallon? really? Car was spacious and comfortable.
4.0 OkayJun 6 2021
We reserved a compact car. We were told there would be a compact car waiting for us. When we got to the counter, the man we spoke with us suggested we should upgrade to a bigger car because we might be in the mountains and would. need more power. We declined. He then said he had no compact cars left. They had all been taken, even though we had reserved one, and had been told there would be one for us. He gave us a choice between a truck and a Dodge Grand Caravan. I knew my wife would have trouble with the truck, getting in and out, etc. She has back and hip problems. We reluctantly took the gas guzzling Grand Caravan. We had selected a compact car on this trip because we knew we'd be driving a lot of miles, and also because power and comfort were not an issue. My wife can get in and out of a compact car a lot better than the higher up Caravan. We were very disappointed in the vehicle because of that and the gas guzzling problem. We at least want a refund of the difference in mpg between the Caravan and a compact.

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.
5.6 OkaySep 9 2018
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.

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

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.

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.

Top tips for renting a car at Salt Lake City Airport

  • When visiting the area, a car rental at Salt Lake City Airport is a great way to explore and head to all the attractions on your to-do list. As the city is not known for being particularly walkable and does not have its own extensive public transportation system, driving is one of the best ways to move between neighborhoods and visit nearby towns, such as Ogden. Having your own Salt Lake City Airport car rental also makes it easy to transport any sports equipment or luggage.
  • Depending on your specific preferences and needs, there are quite a few models for you to choose from for your car rental at Salt Lake City Airport. If you will be doing quite a bit of driving or traveling with several other passengers, you may want to choose a spacious SUV. Those that primarily plan on staying in downtown Salt Lake can always opt for an economy or compact model instead, as these are a bit smaller and generally are easier to park and move through narrow roads.
  • Once you are ready to return your car rental at Salt Lake City Airport, you can do so by bringing it back to the exact area where you initially picked it up. All rental companies that have branches at Salt Lake City Airport keep their fleets on-site at airport property, so make sure to remember where you initially picked your vehicle up from, as this is where you will be dropping it off. Some companies at the airport may allow you to return your vehicle after hours, but this will depend on their individual policy.
  • Salt Lake City is a large city that is a major business hub, so the streets often have traffic. If you want to avoid getting caught in congestion, try to pick up and drop off your vehicle around rush hour, which is normally between the times of 7 and 9 am and 4.30 and 6.30 pm. You will find that there are a few roads that tend to be busier than others, and these include Interstates 15, 154, and 215.
