Drive from Denver to Phoenix with a One-Way Car Rental

Driving from Colorado to Arizona will take you through stunning landscapes and past one of the most iconic natural wonders in the US. The fastest route will take you through Colorado then south through Utah and Arizona. Because the first part of the drive will involve going through mountainous areas, if you are driving between October and April you should consider renting a vehicle like an SUV or another with four-wheel-drive.  Adding winter equipment to your rental, if available, as well as roadside protection is also advised. Our fleet also includes a variety of vehicle categories including economy cars, convertibles, sports cars, and luxury sedans. Be advised that not all vehicles are available for one-way rentals.   

Driving Directions from Denver to Phoenix

Traveling from Denver to Phoenix is straightforward. There are at least a couple of options of routes to take, but the fastest takes you through Utah and Arizona, while the other goes through New Mexico. After picking up your one-way car rental at Denver Airport, take I-25 S and then I-70 W. This interstate will take you into Utah where you will then take the highway south at Thompson Springs. At Flagstaff, AZ you will merge onto I-17 S to Phoenix. The drive takes you through the national forests of western Colorado, the beauty of Moab, Utah, and the desert landscape outside Phoenix. There should be gas stations and food options along the way but be sure to top up your gas tank before traveling through more remote stretches along the highway in Utah and Arizona.
