I made a reservation for a ca pickup at sky harbor airport in Phoenix. My car was at Mesa airport. I had to take and Uber for $70 to get to Mesa or pay $500 a day walk up fee. I returned the car to sky harbor airport and they wanted to charge me a $300 drop off fee. I told them it was their mistake. After 45 minutes at the counter they cancelled the drop off fee. My reservation was made through Priceline. Whole thing was a nightmare. Never again.

Was not accomodating in changing drop off location, and they had no cars available at the location I booked the rental.

I booked at Sky Harbor. Somehow the reservation ended up at Mesa Gateway. Sky Harbor Hertz did nothing to help me. Offered a car 4 times the price. I too Uber and will not use Hertz again in the future.

When I got to the rental counter, they informed me they had no cars in all of Phoenix and that third party sellers were booking cars that aren't there. I was unable to find a car in Phoenix and had to pay for extra nights hotel.

I booked a reservation on kayak and then took a $70 Uber to pick up the vehicle only for them to tell me it was unavailable due to under staffing. Only one person at the counter who happened to be injured. Five other families were told the same thing, offered no solution or alternative and would not let us speak to a manager. The individual working the counter just hid in the back room. STAY AWAY!!!!!

booked a car, traveled from sky harbor airport to mesa airport to pick it up and there was no car. Wasted 90 bucks on an uber and agent could do very little for us.

Was given the wrong car, got there and they said it's first come first serve even though you reserve a specific vehicle. the car said it was sanitized and clean but I got into it and there were fingerprints all over the windshield, sticky candy-like substances all over the vehicle doors and seats.

The manager was niceThey put me in a car that had a recall and after waiting 45 minute to get through the line, I ended up having to back out to get another car, which was a small SUV. Very different from the luxury car that I reserved and paid for.

Price at airport was considerably higher than places just a few miles away.

I like that we were upgraded after they rented out the vehicle we reserved.The price was still quite steep and the A/C didn’t work the best and the cruise control didn’t work in the car either.

I paid over 40 Just to arrive at the location just to be told they don’t have any of the vehicles I put in for a reserved

Car was great although there was no explanation of the car we were just handed the key and sent off on our way. A lot of digital stuff in the car to figure out. Otherwise great experience. Pickup and drop off very easy.

Had a hiccup due to reserving the car at the wrong airport (my error). The folks at Enterprise Phoenix Sky Harbor were amazing. Found me a car and honored my original quote. Got me on my way in no time and were very friendly and helpful.

I was given the keys and told to find the car outside. The car had multiple dings and dents, some of which were marked with small Xs. The car also had a bad lingering smell. Either someone smoked inside at some point or worse.

I liked I could drop the rental car off in another city. Things that could have gone better 1. They could offer a map, like they use to, to get to the freeway. I’m old and don’t have a navigation device. 2. Shuttle service to budget, no help from them. Being last off plane we missed all taxis, took 2 hrs to get to budget. 3. Unfriendly service once we arrived. Our rental was a dirty car. 4. Once on our way, The car had a light on that wouldn’t go off, pull inconveniently off the road to find they never latched down the front hood of the car. HELLO! 5. The last blow was the return! Pull in they check everything out and see the gas gauge IS on full I’d just filled up. They wanted a receipt for the gas, I was NEVER informed that I would need proof. He basically accused me of trying to return a car without filling up, said some cars the gauge doesn’t drop off the full mark?? WHAT I just drove 170 mi. and you’re telling me your gauge doesn’t work? Needless to say they charged me $49.00 for gas. Need I say more….

No drop-off fee for dropping at a different location.Exterior of car was dirty and I was told that was because it was the desert. The person at the desk handed me the keys and told me I would find the car out in the lot. The lot is a hotel lot and I had no idea where to look. It was 100 degrees and I had my 87 year old mother with me. I looked all over and had to go inside and find the worker who also had trouble finding the car. Started out of the lot to discover a low tire pressure warning. Back inside. This time the worker came out with me. Didn't realize until I was well on my way that the AC wasn't cooling right. I had it at 64 with full fan and it was never cool. I would never rent from this location again.

The only problem was , at the counter. They wouldn't accept my driver's license, due to it not scanning. I was put in a bad position. I understand it was in bad shape, but all other ID I had showed I was me. I was mad but was able to get a copy of it online. The agent was very helpful when she told me about it. All that put me over an hour late and was very stressful.. Thank you

was close to where we were staying and was convenient. thought we got a fair rental amount except for the additional cost - see dislike. selection was not great - rented a mid-size car and got a hyndai elantra.went to pick up car and asked for discount for AAA or AARP. Was asked for our aarp card which we gave and received a discount for. Then after we went to pay, was told we needed insurance ($60+) for an additional driver, but if we had used aarp coverage would have been included at no additional charge. he didn't explain that before and he was the one who asked for our AAA card. Explained to use aarp he would have to redo everything and we had already waited about half an hour so we went ahead and paid the additional amount.

car smelled like pot. the rental agent said it was legas and nothing he could do. Our car was going to the shop and no other cars were available. after going to a casino there was a police checkpoint and they had my wife and I sit on the curb for one hour in the rail while they searched the car. It was one in the morning and we are in our 70's. Never another avis

Top tips for renting a car in Mesa

  • With the huge Tonto National Forest on the northeast, the South Mountain Park 15 miles to the west, and the city of Phoenix only half an hour drive away, there is plenty to explore around Mesa, apart from the wonderful city itself, of course. Mesa is the perfect base for the many incredible hiking and walking opportunities in and around the city, and there is no more convenient way to get to all your remote and local destinations than by car. Rent a car for your time in Arizona and set up your own schedule and itinerary.
  • Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is just over 20 miles from Mesa’s heart, so make it easy and rent a car directly from the various hire car agencies located right at the terminal. A drive to Mesa will only take about half an hour from the airport, and you can head straight to your next destination or accommodation via the US-60 West.
  • Usually, Arizona is known as one of the sun-kissed states with splendid weather; however, there are monsoons happening regularly throughout the state, including heavy rain showers, strong winds, or dust storms. Always heed the warnings of signs and do not enter areas that tend to get flooded when there is a heavy rain storm. Also, as rain showers and dust storms can impair visibility, make sure to adjust your speed or even stop entirely where it is safe, and only drive on when the weather conditions improve.
  • The daily rush hour in Mesa is heaviest on the routes between Mesa and Phoenix, for example on the I-10, US-60, and AZ-202. Especially between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 7pm are peak times in Mesa where the roads can be severely congested. At least an extra hour should be planned ahead so there will be no major delays for travelers.
  • Book your rental car in Mesa at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
