Top tips for renting a car in Arizona

  • One of the most important considerations about renting a car in Arizona is the weather, especially in the summertime. With so many locations throughout Arizona that can reach the triple digits during the summer, you most certainly are going to want a car with a good air conditioner. Arizona is also a place with a lot of great outdoor adventures, so having a larger vehicle, such as a van or an SUV, may be a great choice to take all your gear to some of these amazing destinations.
  • When you are driving a rental car in Arizona with children in the car, it is important to remember some specific rules for the state of Arizona. Every child that is eight years old or younger must be in an approved child safety seat. Children that are thirteen years or younger should always ride in the backseat of a car. It is also important to remember to use a child restraint device that is appropriate for the size and weight of the child.
  • Because the state of Arizona borders Mexico, a lot of renters often wonder if they can take the car into Mexico. Most major rental car companies will allow you to take a rental car into Mexico but with a couple of important things to remember. Let the rental car companies know you plan on taking the car to Mexico because they will most likely require you to purchase additional insurance. It is also good to know that you most likely cannot do a one-way rental into Mexico.

FAQs about renting a car in Arizona

  • Should I rent a car in Arizona?

    The choice on whether or not to rent a car in Arizona really depends on how you plan on traveling while you are there. If you are going to stick to a major city, such as Phoenix or Tucson, there are generally plenty of public transportation options to get you around town, plus you can take advantage of taxis and rideshare vehicles. If you are going on longer adventures and especially if you're going out to places such as the Grand Canyon, the Colorado River, or Sedona, you are most certainly going to want a vehicle for the utmost ease and convenience.

  • What is driving like in Arizona?

    Although driving in Arizona is not much different than any other state in the United States, there are still some unique laws and features to know about when you drive here. Like every state in the United States, drivers in Arizona will drive on the right side of the road and all distances and speeds will be in miles. It is important to remember that Arizona has banned the use of cell phones while you drive, but you generally can use them in a hands-free manner. If you see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road, you must move over one lane as long as it is not dangerous to do so. If you can't move over, you must reduce your speed by at least 10 mph below the speed limit.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Arizona?

    For the most part, to rent a car in Arizona, you will need to be twenty one years or older. An exception to this is if you want to rent a nicer car, such as a luxury sedan or a premium SUV. Rental car companies will generally want you to be twenty five years or older to do so. This age restriction is also going to be true if you want to use a debit card instead of a credit card to rent your car. There are some rental car companies that will let anyone who is eighteen years or older rent a car, but prepare for the fact that this is going to be a very basic vehicle and you will have very limited options to choose from.
