Car rental alternatives in Phoenix, AZ

Desert vibes
in Phoenix

It’s hot in the desert and that’s absolutely the point. Come for the spas and pool club parties, and you’ll discover that Phoenix has even more to offer than complete relaxation or total party mode.

No matter the season, you’ll find great outdoor activities — from dining al fresco to getting up close and personal with saguaros. Get your Phoenix airport car rental alternative delivered to your terminal so you can just hop in and get out there.

Phoenix Favorites

When the heat is on, turn up the A/C so you can spin around town and see these unexpected Phoenix gems.

Musical Instrument Museum

Full of fascinating musical instruments from around the world, with in-depth exhibits on how they’re played, this museum also showcases famous instruments, like John Lennon’s piano.

Taliesin West

Frank Lloyd Wright’s beautiful winter home in the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale is the epitome of his modernist style, and also home to his architecture school. See the house glow warmly on night tours.

Camelback Mountain

Hit the Cholla or Echo Canyon trails early for a hike that takes you up nearly 3,000 feet in elevation in under three miles, but you’ll be rewarded with incredible views of Phoenix.

This was my first time renting from a licensed business (rather than an individual) and the difference/quality was noticeable. I think the experience as a whole felt more professional and therefore trustworthy. From start to end, it was a smooth experience and instructions were clear to follow. Ryan's company runs a whole fleet of cars here in Phoenix, and I will continue to rent from him in the future since I have no plans to get a car myself yet and the prices were either on par with or cheaper than any of the car rental companies.

From the start to the finish, using Patrick’s car was a breeze. The car was clean, in great condition, and a dream to drive. If there were any questions regarding the process or with the car, Patrick responded immediately. If I ever need to rent a car in Phoenix again, I will certainly use Patrick again. Easy peasy!!!

Turo is a great alternative to using the big name car rental agencies, so it's a great way to choose the car you'd like to drive and save some money.

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

Whether you’re escaping the blasting heat or just want to see something unusual, there are some fantastic reasons to book a Phoenix car rental alternative on Turo and take a road trip.


Take your Phoenix car rental alternative two hours north to Sedona, which is more than just a getaway town of high-end spas and resorts, but a spiritual mecca for artists and healers.


Desert life brings out the weird in people, and the small-town, artsy feel of Tucson celebrates all of it. Jump in your Phoenix car rental alternative for the two-hour drive south.

Grand Canyon National Park

A four-hour drive from Phoenix, it’s hard to resist the majesty of the Grand Canyon, and it’s the perfect place to guide your Phoenix car rental alternative along the rim for striking views.

First Turo trip and we couldn’t be happier. That’s it for rental cars at the airport for us. So convenient and such a time saver compared to a traditional rental. We’ll be renting from Tyler again next year :)

Great vehicle to explore the Phoenix area. It’s quick and responsive, unlike most other rental cars you’d typically find at a large chain rental company. Garage parking made the pickup and drop off easy.

This was my first time using Turo. Brittany was exceptionally patient with me and my many questions. I also needed to alter the trip a couple of times and she was kind enough to accommodate. The Pick-up process was also adjusted for me. Both that and return went much smoother than with traditional car rental companies. I will definitely use her services in the future.

MJ’s car was a blast and his communication was even better! From the pictures listed of the car I could already tell it was going to be a joy to drive(and it was) but what really made me fall in love with it was the exhaust note and acceleration from the turbocharged engine and the amazing fuel economy it had to offer, I feel like this car bridges the gap between the fuel economy you would desire in a car you’re renting from a traditional car service to the luxury and sport you’d expect from a high end performance vehicle, this beautiful blue convertible was a great choice for me as I was staying near the Sonoran desert with such scenic views and smooth long roads. 10/10 would rent this car from MJ any and every time I’m in the Phoenix area!

This was my first time using Turo. Thanks to Reign, I will be a return customer. Dealing with Reign was much nicer that dealing with rental car companies and the car had more “bells and whistles” than what you typically get with standard car rental companies. The car was great and everything went very smoothly. We definitely plan to rent from Reign again!

Strong communication is important for a good Turo experience and Austin is 5 star. His 911 is a beautiful car and a fine example of why Porsche's are desirable. If you're looking for a luxury sports car experience in Phoenix this is it.

Omg my best rental yet! I had so much fun with this feisty car, and it was immaculate when I first got into it! Had charging cables already provided and just well, felt like meeting an old friend from years ago, like the car rental was great to see you! Johnathon is an excellent and well rounded communicator and you know he’s your go to host when it comes to courtesy and trust.
Kimberley A. - March 5, 2020

Business trip. No rental cars so I decided to give Turo a try just hours before my flight. They responded immediately, helped me through the process and delivered a beautiful, cool car right to me. I asked to change my delivery time last minute and they were enough to accommodate. It was a great experience!
Steve G. - October 13, 2019

I enjoyed Eric’s Chrysler convertible! It was perfect for viewing the scenic red rocks of Sedona. The car was clean and Eric was very helpful and flexible for pickup and drop-off. This was my first experience with TURO, and I will likely use TURO for my next car rental. Thanks Eric!

This was our first time trying Turo. It was the best experience ever. Michael and his wife were extremely helpful and very punctual. Communication was very good as well. The car was in perfect shape. Very clean and fun to drive. If all Turo owners are like Michael, then the national big brand car rental companies are in big trouble. We will never wait at a car rental counter again. Thank you Michael - you made us loyal Turo believers. We will surely spread the word to our friends who also visit Scottsdale.

This was our first trip with Turo, and Jared made the whole process great! Delivery to the airport was really convenient, and way less hassle than normal rental cars. The Civic was in great shape and was lots of fun to drive for the week. If you prefer a manual transmission I'd highly recommend it.
Brenten S. - September 8, 2019

First time using Turo! Everything went extremely well. Moses picked us up curbside at the airport. Car was as advertised. No problems at all during the trip and return was very easy. I will definitely use Turo again and I'm glad I have a better option that traditional rental cars.
Russell Q. - June 9, 2019
Chevrolet Impala 2011
This is my first to ever using Turo and I can say that it was the easiest car rental I’ve ever dealt with! I was able to go pick my car up an hour early, and the pick up/ drop off location is literally 3 mins from the airport. I will definitely use this again for my next trip
Kimberly E. - January 21, 2020
Ford Focus 2016
This was my first try at using Turo. I was initially unsure about how well it would work out. The process of renting a car is a little different than when renting from a Car Rental agency so it takes getting used to the first time. I'm happy to report my first experience with using Turo was a great one. The car was clean and ran well the entire trip. I was a little confused about pick up and return but once I understood where to go, it was a breeze. Having to clean the car before returning is something not usually required by Rental Car agencies so this incurs some extra effort. Overall, I thought it was an experience I'll probably try again in the future.

The reviews were right, Ken makes renting his cars a breeze! Our Prius was great on gas and perfect for the longer trips we took. It was clean and convenient to pick up even though we came from the Phoenix-Mesa gateway airport instead (we were able to Uber to the garage). It was great and will be renting from him again if I’m in the area!

The best thing about my trip wasn't the car, despite being immaculate and well taken care of, but the owner. Austin is a true car guy who honestly wants you to enjoy his cars the way they were meant to be driven. He understands that at the end of the day a car is just a car, but what's really important is the human experience. This was the most comfortable and enjoyable car rental experience I've had and I will certainly rent from Austin again.

I am so happy that I learned about this APP rental service. I was using Enterprise Leasing for my rental cars for work. This is my second time using the service. Just when I thought the service could not get better from the first trip; I was wrong. Jim has really clean cars, the cars are in great condition. Jim follows up IMMEDIATELY if you have a question regarding your rental. The location is very convenient, and it was easy to check into and out of the rental car at the SKY HARBOR Airport Parking in Phoenix. He also offers very good mileage for the duration of the rental. Which is better service than the first rental company that I used. He is friendly and very helpful at walking you through the process. I'm looking forward to the next rental for him. Thank you Jim!

Porsche Cayman 2010
A fantastic car owned by a true enthusiast resulted in one of the most enjoyable and trouble free rentals to date. Nathan’s meticulous nature and excellent taste in performance enhancements means that this Cayman is likely one of the most enjoyable around. While the exhaust note is inspiring at the touch of a button, the car is civil enough to drive around like anything else and I’ll likely make this my go to rental when I travel to Phoenix. Thanks so much for your hospitality!
Stephen W. - March 2, 2020

Christopher is by far one of the best hosts that I have had the opportunity to work with! He is incredibly fast with his response times as well as kind and courteous. We picked up his car right at the Sky Harbor airport and his process for doing so was super easy. On our next trip to Phoenix I will absolutely use Christopher's service again!!!
Travis C. - March 3, 2020

Super awesome Mustang GT Ken has here. If you’re looking for a fun car to drive on your trip to Phoenix, this is it! A V8 and a manual transmission, what more could you want? Ken was very communicable and flexible with minor changes I needed. Will 100% rent from him again when I am in town.

Justin’s BMW was top notch! This car was only about a year old and was in great shape and a ton of fun to drive. Justin made pickup and drop off from the airport and back easy. I’ll continue to rent his cars in Phoenix and Chicago.

Marcus is an Excellent Host. He was very accommodating as I finished up my rental. Car was just what I expected at a great rate. I would Highly recommend renting from Marcus when in the Phoenix area.
Jeff L. - March 9, 2020
Chevrolet Bolt EV 2017
Zack is the best! It was our first but not our last trip on Turo. Zack made pickup and drop super easy, and he was really good at getting back on questions. The Bolt is a fun car, great around town. Be careful doing road trips because the 35-40kw max charge rate on DC fast chargers limits your range. And around Arizona, a lot of the Level 2 chargers are ICE'd, which is not a knock on Zach or the car for that matter. The owner and car are highly recommended, would do again for metro Phoenix trip in a heartbeat! Thanks Zack! P.S. We used the 120V EVSE in the trunk to charge at our destination VRBO, Gives about 4-6 miles per hour of charge which is nice if you are not doing long day trips! Tim
Tim E. - February 26, 2020

Ken, you are the best host . If anyone wants to have an amazing trip here on Turo, Ken is the best . He has many different types of cars that will accommodate, whatever it is you need. All you have to do is pick a car, “Relax”, and enjoy your trip. Thank you again Ken, for always making things happen, even if it’s last minute. The BMW was a blast !!!
Renee E. - March 21, 2020

Look no further! I highly recommend this amazing brand new Camry from Reign. This car has all the technology and the perfect color combo with shiny black exterior and the awesome red leather interior This looks and drives like an expensive luxury car. It was absolutely spotless on delivery and even had that new car fresh smell. Loved it. This may be the best deal on Turo, and Reign is one of the best I’ve dealt with. I needed some special accommodation on pickup and delivery and they handled it like pros with no problem at all. If I could give more than 5 stars I would, and the next time I’m in Phoenix I will definitely be reaching out to Reign.

Best Phoenix driving roads

The Devil’s Highway

This drive was named for its highway number, 666, and the tight hairpin turns that will keep your hands tightly gripped on the wheel of your Phoenix car rental alternative as you climb 3,000 feet.

Beeline Highway Route 87

Steer your Phoenix car rental alternative up 3,000 feet through the Tonto National Forest on this drive that mixes exhilarating straights with challenging curves.

Apache Trail Route 88

Though primitive, the highway near Apache Junction will throw you and your Phoenix car rental alternative on beautiful twists up the steep sides of mountains — but be forewarned it’s unpaved after Tortilla Flats.
