Car Hire in Williams or Flagstaff

Hi, Hope someone can give me some info re hiring a car from Williams.

We hope to rent a vehicle and travel to Monument Valley from Williams but it looks as if we would need to go into Flagstaff for this.

Is the best way, to get a taxi from Williams to Flagstaff and rent from one of the town depots (or airport) .

Any suggestions for best rental companies.

We are not travelling until beginning of October this year so have time to work things out.

How are you getting to Williams? Are you spending any time in Williams or is the stop just for Monument Valley?

Pretty sure there are no reliable car rentals at all in Williams. You can catch the AZ Shuttle from Williams to Flagstaff.

We are finishing an organised tour and have decided to extend our time in the USA by 4 days so that we can go to MV on our own. The tour does not go there.

We thought it would be better to end the tour at Williams rather than continue to the airport at Phoenix and drive all the way back up again.

We did think Williams would have a rental company but from investigation it appears we need to get to Flagstaff.

After MV we will drive south maybe stopping at Sedona and Scottsdale before our flight home to Scotland via London!

Is there any flexibility in where you end your tour? If so, Flagstaff would be a much better choice.

Flagstaff is the only option for renting a vehicle. No point in going to Williams.

Sedona (Enterprise) and Phoenix (all brands) are the other choices. If you rent at Flag, you might need to return the car to Flag. Be sure to be clear on that when you book.
