Top tips for renting a car at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport

  • Getting your own car hire at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport will allow you to get a vehicle that suits your travel needs. Arizona is a city designed around driving and by booking ahead, you can have the vehicle of your choice waiting for you so you can get on the road as soon as possible. Your own vehicle gives you total freedom to travel, both within Phoenix and further out into the Arizona desert or even across the border into Mexico.
  • You can get through the service desk quicker when you book with Alamo and use their accelerated check-in service. This allows you to upload photos of your documents, such as your driving licence and passport ahead of time. Those documents can then be verified online so when you reach the desk, all that needs to be confirmed is your payment information. Alamo also offers a self-service check-in, a great option for experienced travellers who want to skip the queue. If you're looking for the most flexibility on timing, Easirent is open 24h a day.
  • If you are looking to avoid crowds when collecting your car hire at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, the terminal is quietest on the weekends and throughout the week it is usually busiest in the middle of the day and the afternoon. The best time to pick up and return your vehicle will likely be between 16:00 and 23:59 as this is the quietest time when most providers will be open.
  • If you wish to take your vehicle across the border into Mexico, you will most likely need to arrange this when you pick your vehicle up at the terminal. Most providers will allow you to take your vehicle into Mexico and it is a great way to make full use of the freedom your own vehicle provides. However, they may limit the types of vehicles you can use and you will likely be required to pay extra insurance calculated at a per-day rate.
  • Book your rental car at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport

  • Where are the service desks located?

    To get on the road with your Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport hired car, first head to the baggage claim area where you will find the service desks for all the different providers. Once you have had your documents verified and your payment method confirmed, you will be directed to your vehicle within one of the terminal's nearby parking lots. Take note of the area your provider's vehicles are located as this is likely where you will be asked to return your vehicle at the end of your trip.

  • What documentation is required?

    You will need to provide a few pieces of official identification before you can collect your car hire at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. You will need your driving licence and if your home country's licence is not in English, an international driving licence or other official translation is required. Your passport will also be required as well as a credit card for your deposit. You will also need a confirmation of your booking which you can print out ahead of time to keep with your other documents. We recommend having these ready to go when you approach the desk so you can get in and out as quickly as possible.

  • What vehicles are available?

    There are a wide range of vehicles available and you can browse KAYAK to find one that best suits your needs. If you travel light and prefer a vehicle that can drive down the narrow roads prevalent in some major cities then you can pick one of the available minis or compact cars. If you're expecting to head out onto open terrain or take a long road trip away from the better-maintained toll roads then one of the available SUVs or 4WDs will likely be most suitable. And for something right in between, there are a wide variety of standard vehicles available.

  • What is the best rental car company at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport?

    Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car rental company at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport is Alamo (8.1, 54 reviews).

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, and National.

KAYAK

Pros:

I didn’t like anything. We arrived at our original airport only to find out the rental was booked at a different airport. I had to pay $100 to Uber to the Mesa airport and when I got there, they didn’t have any cars. There was a line of about 30-40 people that were all waiting for cars.

Cons:

Kayak needs to do a better job of disclosing the location of the rental place. I put in the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. What I didn’t realize is they switched the airport to the Mesa airport. Then when we finally were able to get to the Mesa airport, there weren’t any cars.

Cons:

When i arrived, i was told they didn't have the specialty car i reserved. There were two identical ones in the parking lot and they said they were reserved for others. Not sure why my reservation wasn't valid and theirs was. They did offer another car, but it was our 30th anniversary and we had our heart set on the convertible. Fortunately, Hertz overheard us and they had one and gave us a great deal on it.

6.0 Okay

Pros:

They upgraded my car because there were no economy cars available

Cons:

There was only one person at the rental counter and 15 customers in line. I believe I left a pair of Samsung Galaxy AirBuds in the car that nobody alerted me to.
