#best car rental
Which car rental company is best?
There are numerous posts here with info about car rentals in Phoenix. Likely you are reading some reviews of the off-brand rental companies. Stick with the majors, such as Hertz, Avis, National, Thrifty, Alamo, Budget, Dollar, and you re less likely to have problems. It also helps to join a frequent renter club with a car rental company: Hertz – #1 Club; National – Emerald Club; Avis – My Avis; etc.
There are really no hidden fees. Some companies will try to sell you insurance, which is likely covered by your own auto insurance and/or your credit card, and upgrades. I am pretty sure they all give estimates including all local taxes and fees. If you use a travel service such as Travelocity they do show all fees, however only for airport rentals.
Most of the rental companies have off-airport locations. Go to their web sites to search. Be aware that these off-airport locations are usually open hours such as 8-6 M-F and abbreviated hours Sat/Sun. That info will also be on the web site.
As far as who s best, that would be Hertz IMO, and worth a few extra dollars for the service and reliability.
