KAYAK’s 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.
  • Book your rental car in Tempe at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Tempe are around 38% cheaper than other car types, on average

KAYAK

Pros:

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!

Cons:

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.

Pros:

Vehicle was clean.

Cons:

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.

Pros:

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 properly

Cons:

Nothing 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

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.
