Scottsdale Airport Guide

Car Hire

Scottsdale Airport is one of the busiest, single-runway airports in the US. Even though commercial flights aren’t handled at the airport, more than 10,000 passengers pass through the terminal annually on corporate and general aviation flights. The air strip is currently used as a reliever airport for Phoenix’s two main air hubs. Car rental at Scottsdale Airport provides patrons with expedient transfer to the downtown area, which is only nine miles to the south.

Who to Book With
Upon arrival at the airport, passengers will find two reliable car hire agencies inside the terminal building. Both National and Alamo have offices at the airport, but there are also several car hire agencies with depots just minutes from the terminal, including Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Online bookings can speed up the rental process, with using our online comparator site the best way to secure a vehicle before landing at Scottsdale Airport.

Need to Know Essentials
Travellers will need to produce several documents before picking up car rental at Scottsdale Airport:

- An International Driving Permit or a national driving licence
- A passport with photo identification
- Credit card
- Evidence of booking confirmation

If there was ever a city built for driving, Scottsdale is it. Of course, the downtown gets congested frequently and parking may not be difficult to find, but outside of Scottsdale’s heart is an easy-to-navigate grid of streets. The city has a tough stance on speeding and other traffic infringements, so much so that three different camera systems are used by local law enforcement, including immobile intersection cameras, freeway cameras and mobile van unit cameras. However, if car rental motorists stick to the speed limits, they shouldn’t run into any problems when driving in Scottsdale.

See our Guide on the USA for further details on driving here.


Because Scottsdale Airport doesn’t handle regular commercial flights, there are only a limited number of transportation options for arriving passengers. Car rental is the most economical and most convenient means to travel, but buses and taxis provide alternatives. Trains are not an option as Scottsdale doesn’t operate a rail network.

The City of Scottsdale is serviced by Valley Metro Buses. Tourists can travel from the airport to the downtown area, and vice versa, on Express Route 511. The journey takes passengers from Scottsdale Airpark to Tempe, with the journey taking about 45 minutes. It is possible to pay for a ticket onboard the bus, but exact change is needed. All-day passes are a cheaper option than single tickets and can be booked online or at convenience stores in Scottsdale.

The airport is served by local taxi companies, such as Valley Cab Co. However, to ensure a taxi is available, it is recommended that patrons call ahead or pre-book a cab online. Although taxis tend to be more expensive than buses or car rental, they are a reliable transportation service.


Scottsdale Airport is home to two small FBO terminals (Landmark Aviation and AirCenter), which primarily serves general aviation and corporate flights. The airport handles more than 133,000 aircraft movements annually, so these FBOs stay busy year round. The Scottsdale Industrial Park rests on the eastern side of the airport.

There are five small car parking lots located at the airport. Both long-term and short-term parking areas are available. Landmark Aviation and AirCenter are responsible for maintaining the parking sites.

Wireless internet is provided in both FBO terminals. In addition, corporate travellers will find excellent conference and meeting facilities inside the airport.

Information Services
The aviation centres at Scottsdale Airport have front desk facilities to assist passengers with enquiries, re-fueling procedures and check-in.

Useful Numbers

Passengers with reduced mobility need to contact the proper fixed-base operator before landing at Scottsdale Airport. The staff at either Landmark Aviation or AirCenter can assist in catering to passengers’ needs.

Restaurants and Bars
Within the FBO centres, patrons can opt for gourmet catering upon arrival. Travellers are provided with high-quality food and beverage services at Scottsdale Airport.

VIP Lounges
Since the airport does not handle any commercial flights, patrons won’t find any VIP lounges. Nevertheless, the facilities inside both FBO buildings are luxurious, offering comfortable lounge areas for passengers. There are also pilot rest rooms and quiet rooms.

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).
