Phoenix Airport Travel FAQs

You must be 18 years old to rent a car in Arizona (source). To rent a car with Payless, you must be at least 25 years old. Renters between the age of 21 and 24 can rent standard, intermediate, compact, economy, full-size cars, and minivans with an additional $25.00 per day surcharge. 

How to get to the car rental counter at Phoenix Airport

The Rental Car Center is in a separate building just outside the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. If you fly into the airport, you can reach our rental car counter by taking advantage of the free PHX Sky Train. The train runs every three to five minutes and operates 24/7. (Source)

If you need to drop off a rental car before a flight, you can follow signs for rental cars as you approach the airport. Pickups and drop-offs are handled in the same location, making it easy to return a rental before heading through airport security. 

What do you need to rent a car in Arizona?

You’ll need a valid driver’s license, a clean driving record, and a major credit or debit card in your name to rent a car from Payless. Renters traveling from another country must present a valid passport and a valid international driver’s license. Review all of our rental requirements for a smoother rental experience. 

Do you need a car in Phoenix?

Yes, you’ll need a car when visiting Phoenix. While Phoenix has a bus system you can use to get around, having a vehicle will save you time when traveling between your destinations and provide access to city areas that public transit doesn’t reach. 

Is Phoenix difficult to drive in?

No. Phoenix is relatively easy to drive in because its layout makes it easier to navigate than many other large cities. However, there is a lot of traffic, especially during rush hour. You may also encounter dust storms that force drivers to pull over because of sharply reduced visibility.
