You'll need a car to get around Tucson and the surrounding area, and it makes sense to rent at the airport; all the major car-rental agencies are represented. To save a little on cost, Carefree Rent-a-Car, a local company, rents reliable used cars at good rates.
Driving time from the airport to the center of town varies, but it's usually less than a half hour; add 15 minutes to any destination during rush hours (7:30 am-9 am and 4:30 pm-6 pm). Parking isn't a problem in most parts of town, except near the university, where there are several pay lots.
