Enterprise is the only rental car service at FLG that is open late (9pm). Everyone here is very nice and helpful. Maggie the manager is great !

We spent 9 days in Flagstaff and Sedona in our wonderful Mazda CX-5. Easy to pick up and drop off. Clean, comfortable, and a great car for a week. Would rent again!

Easy drop off. Great gas mileage.Car was filthy at pickup. “Maintenance required” indicator light every time car was started. Flat tire I had to resolve on my own. Paid for Premium (“Maxima or similar) and was assigned mid-sized Rav4.

At drop off point a mile from airport we were going to have to get a ride to the airport. The agent told us we could drop the car at the airport and save us from getting a ride. He was very friendly and helpful.A larger car

Pick up and drop off were as easy as it gets, and the staff was friendly and helpful.I thought the price per day was a bit on the high side, and the extra insurance was much higher than what I've experienced in the past.

We paid for a full size SUV and received an Infiniti SUV that has some transmission issues. After driving for a day we determined it wasn’t safe so requested AC exchange. Called the 800# to discuss options, we drove to the closest Enterprise location in Flagstaff, AZ. They were very helpful but didn’t have a large enough vehicle, they suggested we go to the Flagstaff Pulliam airport location. We drove the additional 15 minutes out there and were greeted by Tiffany who acted as if I was lying about the car issues, even rolled her eyes at me. We told them we would not be driving that Infiniti home that night. Again, they didn’t have any full size SUVs (although there were several in the lot) and we were offered a 2 door Charger. Our group was going to be 5 adults with luggage which is why we reserved a FULL SIZE SUV. We need a vehicle so we took it knowing that I would be speaking with customer service immediately based on Tiffany’s attitude and our dissatisfaction. After speaking with Ivan at customer service he located a minivan and reserved it at the Route 66 Enterprise location, or so we thought. We arrived at that location to find out the van has been moved to the airport location. So back we go to the airport to switch into the THIRD CAR IN THREE DAYS. The van was dirty, trash in the console and crumbs in the seats. I had also paid for SiriusXM radio which didn’t work for almost a day and a half. We communicated that issue to the manager Ben at the Flagstaff airport several times. Needless to say I have never been so disappointed in how this entire situation was handled. Knowing your customer is upset and inconvenienced I feel like the Alamo employees should do what it takes to make them happy. That didn’t happen. I would appreciate someone from Alamo reaching out to me to discuss how to make this right.

Nothing I couldn’t even pick up my rental and they had my reservation canceledBeing up front with their fees, I went in with the misguided notion that my reservation would be honored at the amount agreed on. Instead I was charged my reservation amount with an additional “company policy fee” of $400 on top of what I was already paying for the actual rental. My $300 rental had now come out to over $700. I almost missed my own mother’s funeral. Thank you for your service Alamo!

Easy to book Had to cancel as plane flights delayed and then canceled. Then could not get rental on next day

Budget would not accept reservation. If it wasn't for the Hertz rep at the next counter me and my family would have been stranded.
5.9 Okay14 Oct. 2021
They only had a Prius available and since we were traveling with a small dog for 8 days it wouldn’t work for us we had to pay an extra $15 a day to move to a Toyota Camry which was not really clean and needed the tires balanced because the steering wheel vibrated. Otherwise we would have to wait at the airport for a minimum of 3 hours for another vehicle.
3.9 Mediocre22 Sep. 2021
Long wait at Flagstaff for car. Windows dirty. Tank not quite full. Kia Optima was one of the best cars I have ever driven. So quite I had to look at tach to see if it was running. Excellent drop off at Albuquerque, about 3 minutes. Overall good deal, after I spent 2 days trying to clean car and windows so I could see out.
1.9 Horrible31 Aug. 2021
They made me sit in the aiport for over 1 hour while they "found" and prepared the car that I had reserved for 9am. What's worse, they were extremely rude, took no responsibility, and tried to blame it on me! I will never book with Budget again.
2.0 Mediocre3 Jul. 2021
Staff fixed the issue but had to be insistentBudget allows you to reserve cars for 1pm and later at the 1426 E Rte 66 Ste 101, Flagstaff, AZ 86001 location, and when you arrive at the airport they will tell you that this location closes at 1pm, therefore you will have to rent your car from the airport with a +25% airport fee. In my opinion that's downright fraudulent. You should not be allowed to reserve a car for a time that does not exist, essentially forcing you to rent from the airport
6.0 Good24 May 2021
Friendly staff. Easy drop off. Good gas mileage for an SUV. Clean vehicle.It was supposed to be filled up but was only at 1/4 tank. Had to go back so they could fill it. Still wasn't filled completely. Lots of scratches to outside of vehicle, including vandalism of the paint job. Was supposed to seat 7, with luggage. Not as much space as advertised.

We liked that the counter was right in the airport and close to the baggage carousel. We loved that it was easy to get our car from the lot.

The car was a mustang convertable which is fun of course but a 2 door and with a smallish trunk and inappropriate for dirt roads 😂 My only complaint really is we were charged an extra unexpected $30+ airport tax at check in

I missed my connecting flight and couldn't pick up the car on time. Due to a full-day tour that I scheduled for the 2nd day, I couldn't go get the car till the 3rd day. Their policy is that they would hold the car for 24 hours but then nothing is guaranteed afterwards. The person at Hertz Flagstaff location who helped us managed to get us a car even though the kind we booked was not available anymore. The car we ended up having is really fun to drive and we had a great time for the remainder of the trip!

I would definitely rent from Hertz again I arrived late in Flagstaff and they closed at 4 pm so I took a taxi to my hotel and the next morning they came and got me from my hotel. Hertz was awesome thank you for everything. Their employees were very kind and courteous people.

Once I got my car, it was a better make/model than what I had reserved.Unfortunately, even though I had a reservation, there were no cars available when I went to pick up and I had to wait for 2 hours! This has apparently been a problem in Flagstaff for weeks, no inventory. I feel bad for the staff since its outside of their control, but WTF.

NothingDidn’t even get a car from Hertz. When I arrived the attendant told me “they had no cars” so I guess my reservation was useless. Attendant wasn’t helpful or offered anything, so I was stranded with no car at the airport. Was able to scramble and get a car last minute with another agency at triple the price. Never using hertz again, serious headache.

Clean car, friendly staff.Too long of a line to pick up the rental. There were 5 people ahead of us in line at the Flagstaff airport, and with one person behind the counter it literally took 45 mins to wait for our car.

great rentalUpgraded to a SUV just in case we ran into snow problems. There were 18" of snow the day before. We were very happy with rental. Personnel at the airport were very helpful.nothing
10.0 Excellent8 Feb. 2017
Customer service at the counter was great-- very friendly and helpful staff! I ended up getting a much nicer car than I had originally reserved due to low inventory at the same price as my original rental. The car was absolutely perfect and I had a blast enjoying the freedom it gave me while I was on my trip.The underage driver charge is rough, but that was to be expected. Additionally, there wasn't very much flexibility in drop off location for a cancelled flight-- driving the car from FLG to PHX would have doubled the cost of my rental just to turn the car in at a different location.

Nothing. They didn't have a car for me. I booked online, I payed the deposit, I showed up to pick up the car and they told me they didn't have anything for me, that they wouldn't honor my booking, wouldn't refund my deposit, and I was forced to spend $250 to buy a ticket for a 26 minute flight.Everything. Having the car that I booked, and if not, refunding the deposit.

Top tips for hiring a car in Flagstaff

  • Having a car hire in Flagstaff will allow you to see the city and its surroundings on your own terms. There are many nearby attractions that are best visited with your own vehicle, such as Walnut Canyon National Monument, Lowell Observatory and Sunset Crater. Having a car will also allow you to make day trips to attractions a little further out, such as Grand Canyon National Park or taking a drive along Route 66.
  • You can pick up your car hire in Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG). The service counters are located inside the terminal, near the baggage claim area, where you will be directed just outside the terminal to pick up your vehicle. After-hours returns are also available at the airport. We recommend booking ahead through KAYAK to start your trip as smoothly as possible.
  • When driving your car hire in Flagstaff, you must drive on the right side of the road. You should be aware that no level of alcohol is allowed while driving. Major highways will have high occupancy vehicle lanes, sometimes labelled as HOV, where during certain hours they are restricted to vehicles with two or more total passengers. While usually you are not supposed to change lanes over a solid white line, this does not apply to HOV lanes. It is compulsory to use headlights between sunset and sunrise.
  • If you are travelling in the monsoon season, be prepared for heavy rains, winds and, most importantly, dust storms that may limit your ability to drive at all due to having little to no visibility. If there has been heavy rain, be on the lookout for signage indicating an area may be dangerous when flooded and should be avoided. Even if the water looks low enough to drive through, heavy water can rush through these areas without warning. Arizona can get snow, and while Flagstaff doesn't get heavy snowfall, some areas can be covered in ice and slippery if there has been a heavy snowstorm recently. You may wish to get snow chains that will help you drive during a snowstorm.
