Last Minute-- No problem
But have you seen the price of auto rentals at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport? Completely outrageous! With Taxes and incomprehensible Fees, we are talking over $500.00 dollars for one week's rental.
Phoenix city car rentals are much more in line with average prices from around the country. However, the only drawback being, that you will be stuck with cab fare for the ten or fifteen mile jaunt to their non-airport location.
Your second option and by far the most practical is to wait-- until the last minute. Hold out until two days before your departure, then go to Hotwire.com and voilà, prices have dropped dramatically at major car rental companies like Thrifty Car Rental. hotwire.com
