Tips for renting a car in Prescott

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Prescott including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on March 1, 2024.
  • Driving a rental car is the ideal way to see Prescott, a city in central Arizona. A rental car can allow you to get to your appointments, visit family and friends, and see the sites according to your own agenda without having to be limited by public transportation. Within Prescott, you could drive to Whiskey Row in historic downtown, visit the Smoki Museum, or explore the shores of Watson Lake. Beyond the city limits, you could drive to Prescott National Forest, Goldwater Lake, or Ponderosa Park.
  • The Prescott Regional Airport (PRC) is conveniently located at the northern end of the city. Avis and Budget car rental counters are conveniently located in the arrivals area, near the baggage carousel, immediately to the left of the exit doors. The Avis counter is open daily from 6:30 am to 9:30 pm, and the Budget counter is open daily from 6:30 am to 9 pm. Rental cars are parked just outside the terminal in the airport parking lot and when you return your car, follow the signage as you approach the airport.
  • When you're driving a rental car in Prescott, it's important to know a few Arizona rules of the road. Arizona has a zero-tolerance policy for people driving under the influence. If you are stopped, you can be cited and fined for drunk driving, regardless of your blood alcohol content. Roundabouts are becoming increasingly popular in Arizona, including in Prescott. Reduce your speed to about 20 mph when entering and if you miss your exit, go around the traffic circle again. If you see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road, you must leave one lane between you and them if possible. If you cannot safely do this, you must slow down to at least 10 miles lower than the speed limit. If you are stopped for speeding, and you are caught eating, applying make-up, shaving, or doing anything that distracts your driving, you could receive an additional citation and fine.
