If you are visiting Arizona and will be needing a car during your stay, you have several options. Most of the major, well-known chains have counters at the Sky Harbor Rental Car Center. If you are looking for a different or local company, or if big events or conventions in the Valley of the Sun have made it difficult for you to find an available vehicle, one of the following car rental companies in Phoenix and Scottsdale might be your answer. Please note that a listing here does not constitute a recommendation; I have no personal experience with any of these companies.
