Phoenix Sky Harbor Int.Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Phoenix Airport is also known as Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It is the largest airport by far in the state of Arizona and one of the largest airports in the US. As such, there are plenty of rental cars available. PHX makes a great place to start a road trip through the western states which would undoubtedly include a trip to the Grand Canyon. 

Top international routes

  • Denver
  • Los Angeles
  • Chicago
  • Seattle/Tacoma
  • Minneapolis/St. Paul
  • Dallas/Fort Worth

Main airlines

American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, American Eagle, and Frontier Airlines

Terminals

The three terminals are Terminal 2, Terminal 3, also known as John S. McCain III Terminal, and Terminal 4, also known as Barry M. Goldwater Terminal. The PHX Sky Train provides a free shuttle service between them.

Location

Phoenix Airport is about 3 miles (4.8 km) from downtown Phoenix. Sky Harbor Boulevard, Papago Freeway, and Washington Street are the main roads connecting the airport to the city.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Convertibles - from $113 per day
  • Large cars - from $106 per day
  • Medium cars - from $107 per day
  • Vans - from $233 per day
  • Premium cars - from $157 per day
  • Small cars - from $116 per day
  • SUVs - from $195 per day

Car rental desks

Most are in the Rental Car Center (RCC), which can be reached from the airport by taking the free car rental shuttle. It is located across the interstate from the airport, so be sure to keep this in mind when returning your car. In addition to serving its main function, RCC also houses an art gallery.

Services and facilities

You’ll find restaurants, bars, cafés, and pizzerias, as well as many shops, including duty-free outlets in T4. There are also several ATMs, a currency exchange in T4, three nearby hotels, baby changing facilities, a children’s play area, mobile device charging tables, read and return bookstores, a first aid service, a spa, a museum, an art gallery, and an interfaith prayer room. Phoenix Airport is well equipped for travelers with reduced mobility. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

There is a Shell station on Buckeye Rd. a block away from the Rental Car Center, but its prices are around $1 more per gallon than other stations in the area. It may be useful if you fill up earlier and only top off at it. If approaching the airport along I-10 from either direction, you can exit onto N 24th street where you'll find two stations on the way to the Rental Car Center. If approaching on I-17 from the north, use exit 196 to reach a different Shell station.

A car was very necessary to visit the trails around Sedona. Sedona has a vast number of trails to give impressive views of red rock formations.

Please ask a correct rent car return address when receiving the car because when trying to find that address it is almost impossible to find or guess it yourself!
