Phoenix Car Rental FAQs

What is the most popular rental car in Phoenix?

  • When booking a Phoenix Car Rental, the best choice completely depends on what your needs are, including your budget, the size of your group, the amount of driving you plan on doing, and simply what type of vehicle you feel most comfortable in. The Intermediate/mid-size car is always a popular choice, due to the fact that it’s fuel efficient, and it’s not too big, and it’s not too small, especially for 2-4 people. Now if you’re going to explore the great outdoors, or you’re bringing along your golf clubs, it might be a good idea to look into a Midsize or Standard size SUV (seats 5), or a MiniVan that seats 7 if you’re travelling with a larger group.

How will I find the best price for my Phoenix rental car?

  • To find the best price for your cheap Phoenix car rental, begin by searching our website as soon as you have finalized your trip plans. You will need to input your arrival/departure dates and the times for both pick up and drop off. Once the search results appear, you can then choose the type and size of rental vehicle you would like and book the best option right away. That guarantees the rate for you as of that day. So if rates increase, you are locked into that rate. But because rates do fluctuate, it’s a good idea to check back periodically on our website to see if there are lower prices, simply by putting in the same dates and time and doing another search. If a lower rate is found, you can make another car rental reservation for Phoenix and cancel the existing one.

What happens if I need to cancel my reservation?

  • There is no fee to cancel your booking if you book with us. Discount USA Car Rental does not take any money up front, nor do we do a credit card number. All that’s needed to make a reservation is the primary driver's name and email address, so you can cancel your booking at any time with no charge, even at the last minute. If you need to change your booking, we can help you re-book or adjust your booking with the car company as needed. Contact us anytime to assist with changes.

What should I provide at the rental counter for my car rental in Phoenix?

  • When you arrive at the counter, you will need to provide your reservation confirmation number, a valid driver’s license, and a major credit card, or debit credit card (not all suppliers and locations will accept a Debit Credit Card). The name on the reservation, driver’s license and credit card must match. Please note that there are restrictions when using a Debit Credit Card, and they vary depending on which car rental company you’re booked with. Please be sure to consider the method of payment you’ll be using and read through the terms and conditions so you are fully prepared at the counter. You can call us too anytime and we will be happy to help as best we can.
