Explore Tucson

At one time a Spanish outpost, Tucson retains this part of its history most powerfully in the El Presidio Historic District, in the heart of the city. La Casa Cordova is an old Spanish home, once owned by a wealthy Spanish businessman before Arizona was designated part of America. The mansion can be accessed through the Tucson Museum of Art, which has an inspiring collection of works from the ancient to the contemporary, and emphasises the connection of art to life.

While you’re exploring the central city area, you may be interested in two other historical former residences, the Stevens House and the Fish House, now functioning museums focusing on the lives of the local elite in the mid-19th century.

Be sure to visit the Pima Air and Space Museum. It is the biggest privately funded aerospace museum in the world, and traces the development of aviation over the last century. The museum features over 250 aircraft, including a replica of the Wright Flyer, the first aeroplane ever constructed.

The concept behind the design of Tohono Chul Park is the enrichment of people’s lives through art, nature and culture, and the provision of a fertile environment in which to experience peace and inspiration while becoming acquainted with the natural and cultural background of the region. Nature trails wind through the beautiful gardens, and informative exhibits are featured in a renovated historic home.

Old Tucson Studios, just minutes from the centre of town, offers traditional Old West entertainment in the form of shows, rides and shops, on the site of the world’s most famous film location, which has played a role in shaping worldwide perceptions of the Old West.

The major suburbs in Tucson are: Armory Par, Barrio Históatalina Foothills, Craycroft, El Presidio, Flowing Wells, Marana and Oro Valley.

Transport

By air
Tucson International Airport is situated approximately 16kms from town, and is served by 14 different airlines with non-stop service to 18 cities and connections to more than 121 destinations. Although most international flights are to Mexico, the airport has all the facilities of an international airport. Transportation options into town include: taxis, hotel shuttles, shared van rides and the city bus.

By car
Interstate 10 is the main east to west highway across the south of the USA, and passes through Tucson on its way to Phoenix. To reach central Tucson, take the Congress Street exit off I-10. I-10 continues west to Los Angeles and east through Houston and New Orleans before terminating in Jacksonville, Florida. I-79 heads northwards to Florence and eventually connects with US 60 into Phoenix. I-19 leads from Tucson to the Mexican border at Nogales. I-86 heads southwest into the Papago Indian Reservation.

By train
Rail is a reliable, comfortable and affordable way of travelling in the US. Amtrak trains serve Tucson via the Sunset Limited line, which runs between Orlando, Florida and Los Angeles. The Amtrak train station in Tucson is located in El Presidio Historic District.

By bus
Bus travel is the most affordable but least comfortable travel option. Greyhound buses connect Tucson, directly or indirectly, with almost all towns and cities in the United States.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
