Top tips for hiring a car at Salt Lake City Airport

  • When visiting the area, a car rental at Salt Lake City Airport is a great way to explore and head to all the attractions on your to-do list. As the city is not known for being particularly walkable and does not have its own extensive public transportation system, driving is one of the best ways to move between neighborhoods and visit nearby towns, such as Ogden. Having your own Salt Lake City Airport car rental also makes it easy to transport any sports equipment or luggage.
  • Depending on your specific preferences and needs, there are quite a few models for you to choose from for your car rental at Salt Lake City Airport. If you will be doing quite a bit of driving or traveling with several other passengers, you may want to choose a spacious SUV. Those that primarily plan on staying in downtown Salt Lake can always opt for an economy or compact model instead, as these are a bit smaller and generally are easier to park and move through narrow roads.
  • Once you are ready to return your car rental at Salt Lake City Airport, you can do so by bringing it back to the exact area where you initially picked it up. All rental companies that have branches at Salt Lake City Airport keep their fleets on-site at airport property, so make sure to remember where you initially picked your vehicle up from, as this is where you will be dropping it off. Some companies at the airport may allow you to return your vehicle after hours, but this will depend on their individual policy.
  • Salt Lake City is a large city that is a major business hub, so the streets often have traffic. If you want to avoid getting caught in congestion, try to pick up and drop off your vehicle around rush hour, which is normally between the times of 7 and 9 am and 4.30 and 6.30 pm. You will find that there are a few roads that tend to be busier than others, and these include Interstates 15, 154, and 215.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire at Salt Lake City Airport for $102 or less
  • Book your car hire at Salt Lake City Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

horrible I specifically booked a car for the 4th of feb , i am absolutely sure thats what i booked . I recieved a confirmation with wrong date . I called and texted asap to explain . no help whatsoever so i end up in salt lake with no rental car for the week i was there , and am bieng billed for a car for the wrong dates , I am positive I booked the correct date , as i booked on the 4th and needed the car that day ! Why would I book a rental for dates i wont even be there ? This whole situation makes me wonder if using KAYAK. who is also no help is worth it I can easily go to other travel websites and have a better experience .

Everyone was kind and helpful. Pickup and drop off were fast and easy. Airport shuttle was quick, clean, and courteous. They upgraded me for no charge because the car I rented wasn't available when I showed up early. The car was nearly new, but did have some scratches on the bumper. I marked those on the pickup sheet and it was no problem.

Easy drop off and rental return is right across from Delta terminal.

Only problem we had is that the published information on the Salt Lake City location did not indicate they were open 24 hours. I had trouble multiple times connecting to an associate and then ultimately call dropped. When I was able to speak to a person she told me they were open 24 hours so we didn't need to follow the off hours drop off process

Also dropping off was terrible! Had a flight at 5:30am came to the airport for drop off and the drop off for hertz was closed. Waited till 4:30 and eventually had to just park it at the only open rental parking which was budget. Barely made my flight. Had me and my family and kids running to not miss our flight.

I had a blowout on the freeway shortly after picking up the vehicle. Realized then they had rented me a car with no spare tire and I had to get towed at 10:30 at night. The next day they sent a tow truck to pick up the vehicle, but made me get my own ride to the airport to pick up a new rental. They did offer to pay for an Uber, but it was incredibly inconvenient. I had originally been told they would deliver me a new rental, but then they said they didn’t have the staff to do that. It literally took half a day to get all the arrangements in place and pick up the new car. After all that inconvenience, they only refunded me $120 from a two week rental. I will never, never, never, rent from Payless again.

Cons:

My flight was delayed until 2.5 hrs after the rental office closed. I called and tried to change the pick up time until the next morning. They told me that was fine but to price would have to go up by almost double. When I asked why using the same car for less time would cost twice as much, he stated he could only do what the computer allowed. I asked to talk to the supervisor and he said sure and then it hung up. I found a different car rental for less money and a nicer car.

Airport pickup took an HOUR. Every other rental company had minimal to no lines but the thrifty/dollar rental desk had a super long, slow line. We were late to our event because of it.

Pros:

The pickup at Salt Lake City airport had 1 attendant for 30 people, then the manager on duty arrived and helped. The attendants did the best they could with the crowd they had to manage.

Cons:

We had potential safety issues with our car when 4 and a half hours away from a rental office. We repeatedly were disconnected from service agents on the phone, and NO FOLLOWUP when this happened. Had to spend several hours on hold with NO resolution and, I repeat, NO FOLLOWUP. The safety issue turned out to be OK, but Thrifty was not interested in the least to help us ensure our safety was assured and our vacation plans not totally upended.

I was in line for over 1 hour to pick up the car in SLC.....unsatisfactory! Everyone in line had reservations, so not sure how "manning the booth" during this period was not better predicted. If I hadn't prepaid, I would have moved over to another vendor. Agents did their best to keep things moving and were courteous. I appreciate the gesture of an upgrade, but didn't really need it.

Pros:

The pick-up process was awful and very poorly managed, but the car was clean and the drop-off was convenient.

Cons:

I waited in line for over an hour and a half to pick up my car, causing me to miss an activity on the first day of my trip. There was one person servicing a line of 30+ people until a second person (the manager) finally showed up to help once the line looked like it was close to 50 people. She was unapologetic for the wait and cited the fact that they are the cheapest as the justification for being severely understaffed to manage the number of reservations for that day/time. The counter itself looked like it was meant to accommodate at least 6 agents. After the long wait, when I finally got to the counter, they didn't have the type of car (mid-class) I had reserved for myself. While their prices are competitive I'm not sure I would book with them again in this location.

Drop off was perfect. The franchise was out of the specific car I had stipulated but provided a larger one. Because I was headed to a mountain ski resort, I needed all wheel or four wheel drive. Apparently, I got the last one. In parts of the country where a lot of visitors will be headed into snow, I would think a rental car company would have plenty all or four wheel drive vehicles available.

I waited at least 25 minutes before the agent acknowledged I was waiting in line. At the time I was the only other customer in line. Another agent just walked past. The rate was different, I couldn't get a printed receipt, overall it took me 1 hour and 25 minutes to get a car. Cars should be backed in to parking spaces. this would help with getting out. Also, as soon as I got in the car the check engine light came on with a request for oil and filter maintenance. I shouldn't have to worry at 9pm if the car I just got is going to run or not.

I would never rent from Avis in Salt Lake City again. They did not have my car available and told me I had to wait. (This is after waiting in line for 30 minutes to reach the counter) After waiting 20 additional minutes I saw another person come through the line and be given the same model car I had ordered without having to wait. When I mentioned this they promptly told me oh yes now your car is ready. When I got to the car there was already a family sitting in it having been told it was their car. 2 of the counter agents I could see were doing their best on a chaotic night but the guy who ‘helped’ me seemed surly, untrained, and uninterested in even appearing to be trying to do his job. In addition, once my vehicle was finally sorted (not what I had ordered) it was an additional 30 minute wait with 20 plus angry Avis customers trying to exit out one gate with each ‘transaction’ with the exiting gate keeper appear to take 5 -10 minutes.

Pros:

The car was nice. And complimentary shuttle was great.

Cons:

Customer service could have been better, it did not feel that welcoming. When shuttling having my information to verify we aren’t getting into a strangers car would have felt safer. When going over the pre damages on the car before I leave I felt that it would be more beneficial for them to come out and inspect the car with me rather than me doing it alone. Security deposit amount needs to be listed because that was a surprise. But we enjoyed the car and returning it was easy. I just feel that those other things I mentioned need to be worked on.

And I know that this is not necessarily Advantage's fault but when you google Advantage Airport another location in SLC shows up.

There should be additional questions when booking so that you are aware of the price diu long upon pickup and so you’re not thinking the price you paid at reservation was it when it wasn’t. I will never rent from Advantage again.

Rental counter was closed when my flight arrived late (past midnight). I would expect a ‘major’ airport such as SLC would have coverage for later flights. With nobody available in-person and a typically frustrating phone call to a computer only, we had to stay the night nearby and rent my vehicle the next day. No change in rental costs, no acknowledgement of the hassle, simply “tough luck, you want the vehicle or not”.

Reservations give a company a pretty good idea of how busy they will be on any given day. We picked up our car on a Friday with a convention in town, why are they understaffed on a day like this? It took over an hour to get to my car. They might have made a profit that day, but I will think twice before going with Dollar/ Thrifty again.

The man who helped me at the counter in SLC who I believe is named Joshua Da Jemente, is very slow and incommunicative which makes for a very frustrating customer service experience.

Fortunately the man downstairs in the garage, Frank, was very helpful, and although overall I had to wait an hour for my car, which I had reserved for earlier than I arrived at the counter, he got me into the car relatively quickly once I went downstairs. I strongly urge Budget to look into this franchise. After 15 minutes of paperwork (!), the man at the counter finally tried to call downstairs to determine which car was ready for me to use. No one answered. He seemed helpless. The other person at the counter had left, so he was by himself. He finally went inside the office and a woman came out and communicated to me what was happening: a car was in fact being prepared, and once the car was ready, I'd be escorted downstairs with my paperwork, which seems totally unnecessary. Give it to the customer, they can take it to the car and drive off. They finally said I could go downstairs to the garage and wait there and my paperwork would follow, that the guy who was "helping" me would bring it. I was very doubtful and frustrated. When I got to the garage office, the man there, Frank, immediately responded, made sure the car was being cleaned and did the paperwork himself, printed it out, and once the car was ready - just 5-10 mins later, got me in it and helped me hoist my luggage up into the HUGE car. The final issue that I am frustrated by is that I reserved a Chevy Impala and was given a Ford Expedition which is massive and not comfortable to drive as it is far too big. I had no choice but to take what I was given and get on the road. Due to Budget, I had already lost an additional hour and 15 minutes of daylight. Why is the car not ready, set aside, with contract and keys for me when I arrive at the counter? This franchise at SLC airport seems poorly managed - or maybe they need to update the inventory that they tell Kayak is available, as clearly the car I booked was not available.

The car had a lot of bird poop on it. Also, what we reserved was unavailable, so we had to spend more money on gas for a larger car with no adjustment to our rental rate. Besides that, though, it was great. The truck was in perfect condition and very clean.

Pros:

I ended up canceling the reservation the day I was to pick up the car and ended up using another company. The number given in the confirmation email to call once you land for shuttle service to pick up the car was no longer in service so I googled for a different number. That brought you to an automatic messaging instructing you to call the same number to arrange airport pick up. After about an hour of waiting unsure of whether or not any shuttle was coming I received a text saying someone would be by in about another hour to pick us up. By that point i had already canceled the reservation and booked with Avis and picked the car up at the airport, no shuttle necessary.

The van was not a newer van it had 73k miles and the tires were scalloped so at highway speeds we were in a cement shaker. We called about 45 mins out for a trade and they declined to meet us. Anytime we called for pickup it required multiple attempts to reach someone and even though we gave an hour notice when we were returning the attendant was not at the office and we waited 10 mins for him because he did not receive the Multiple calls of our arrival It was useable van but a mediocre experience on all fronts but it was cheaper by $100 I would get a nicer van and pay the $100 more

This was my second time renting with NU. The pros: • Excellent value for money. • Fairly new and reliable vehicles. • Easy to find shuttle. The con (and it’s a biggie for me): • Not having my reserved car class available. The first time they coerced me into paying for an upgrade (complicated reasoning), the second time they told me I could wait until my car class (small SUV, I think) came back or take a free “upgrade” to a full-size 4x4. It turned out to be a giant Jeep Rubicon truck with knobby big tires. But by the time I got to the lot and saw the beast, the thought of going back in and waiting in line for the (only) agent to make a change—and likely be given a song and dance or upsell about lack of other car types available—was not appealing (travel days are hard and stressful; travel providers know this, and can take advantage of exhausted customers). There were a bunch of jeeps on the lot, so I knew they were effectively forcing them on customers. So I took the Jeep. It was awful to drive. Got horrible mileage. Was loud on the road and big for parking lots. It is what it is but I hated it. And I had it for a whole week. • Off-airport location means that once you’re there, if something goes wrong (like not wanting the vehicle offered) you can’t just walk to the next company’s counter and try for something different like you could at the airport.

This is now the second time with Nu car that I have had this same/ awful experience. Will not rent with them again. I arrived 2 hours after my rental was supposed to begin. They told me they no longer had my car (even though there were 6 of that same car in the lot) and made me pay an extra $160 for a different car. This is unethical and I will never rent from my car again.

They didn’t have my reservation. Very unfriendly and wouldn’t try to solve what happened. Even though they had a car available said they couldn’t do a direct reservation.

First of all, we flew in later in the evening, the office was closed, which we were not aware of. Then the next day, based on what was advertised on the website, we were expecting to pick up a car in Salt Lake City and return it in Las Vegas. When we got there, we were told that was not possible. We were then offered no help on how to fix a situation. Eventually, we just had to cancel and go with another much more helpful company.

SIXT has a brand new facility at SLC. The pick up information was lacking on where to pick up the car. They have their own shuttle to take you to their offsite location. shuttle. They do not have a phone number for the local office. The only number I could find was their 1-800 that never picked up. The SIXT shuttle location was on the side of the main car rental garage. WALK though the main rental car pick up area and head to the right side of that same level to locate “offsite shuttle”. The shuttle was waiting there for me. It took 5 minutes to get to the offsite facility. If you can’t find it, take an Uber to their offsite office. I saw one customer do this. We were greeted with a warm welcome and great efficiency. Car was clean and easy to drive. I would rent from them again.

I have rented dozens of cars over the past few years and have never ever had an experience this bad. Terrible. Do not book a car here especially if you're a local. I went to pick up the car I reserved and pre-paid, I had a valid driver's license and my credit card with me but they wouldn't give me the car. They said they required a secondary proof of address ONLY FOR LOCALS, but wouldn't take my bank statements or my car insurance bill or my renter's insurance bill. They said it had to be a utility bill. I didn't have any, my utilities are included in rent so obviously I don't have utility bills. They didn't listen to anything I said and were extremely rude and inflexible. The manager was so rude I couldn't believe it. Had to take another Uber back to my office and now I'm fighting for a refund.

We ended up using Budget and paying more because we did not have a reservation. When we called Firefly, the number did not lead to the SLC location and the person kept telling us on the phone that they should be there and that they were on a break. We waited more than 10 minutes. Budget told us they left for the day/eve. Bad service. Don't use them unless you're sure they will be open.
