Once with Prescott car rentals, you will be able to visit various attraction sites such as Watson Lake, where you will enjoy fishing and boating, Sharlot Hall Museum, a restored governor's home with folk art, and Lynx Lake for camping.
  • Rush hour in Prescott is nothing compared to rush hour in nearby Phoenix. If you’re making the drive from Phoenix to Prescott, it can be helpful to know when to avoid the highway so you don’t get stuck in traffic.

The Airport has various car rental agencies that would help them get their preferred car model and navigate through the city. Budget and Avis are the central car rental agencies located at the terminal, east of Hwy 89 on Mac Curdy Drive. These agencies have several types of cars that can accommodate more passengers depending on the number of people you want to move with while in the city.
  • If you want to take advantage of the many outdoor recreational opportunities in the Prescott area, you may be best off renting a car with 4WD.

Some (but not all) rental companies offer different types of 4WD cars, so it’s worth inquiring about beforehand if you plan on driving outside the city.
  • As a driver in the city, you should avoid tailgating any time you meet a slow vehicle while on the road in Prescott.

Your child will be covered under your car insurance policy. And, of course, wearing seat belts is required for all occupants, regardless of age.

Enterprise was fine. However, I am unhappy about the vehicle coverage feature I signed up for on Kayak. I did not realize that this was an outside supplemental coverage - I thought it was coverage directly through Enterprise. I wold like to be reimbursed for this expense, as I paid for it again through Enterprise.

Pros:

The car was in good shape, friendly service.

Cons:

Car wasn't ready and I had to wait to get it cleaned. Also, I expended another 90.00 for car insurance that was pushed on me last minute and they told me it would be a 500.00 deposit to not have the insurance. I was also asked to pick out a car " I liked" in person when I already chose a price package online before pickup. I waited about 45 minutes to get out with the car, and had to wait while the car inspector measured a small scratch on the bumper when I returned though I took extreme care of the car on my 48 mile 3-day rental. The car was not examined thoroughly or by the same person when I picked the car up.

We showed up at this location to pick up our rental car and no one was there. They had been closed for days with a note on the door. No one from the office even bothered to call to let us know. We showed up to locked doors and had to make a last-minute car rental reservation with another company instead which was extremely pricey since it was not booked in advance.
