Car rental at Flagstaff airport

Any recommendations on which car rental company to use? I've searched around for reviews and most are negative. We need a car for 10 days to drive to Sedona, Grand Canyon, etc.

Why are you flying into Flagstaff? It makes a lot more sense to fly into Phoenix.

We are flying from Phoneix to Flagstaff and then driving to Sedona.

I figured that was faster and easier than driving from Phoneix to Sedona.

Most likely not. Sky Harbor (airport) to Sedona is an easy 2-hour drive. I think just the drive from Pullium airport in Flagstaff to Sedona will run you 45 minutes or so, plus the flight itself and whatever time you would need to spend at Sky Harbor, i.e. layover time or security, etc.

For car rentals, I would stick to one of the majors (Alamo, Hertz, etc.) If you have a particular company you generally rent from, that's what I'd choose.

You figure wrong. Drive from Phoenix.

Get off the plane at PHX and rent a car from any of the major providers there. You'll save time and money. Flying to Flag is silly if you're heading to Sedona.
