Getting Around Sedona - Shuttle, Car Rental, Ride Share, or Taxi?

The honest truth is that Sedona has become so popular that getting around town will test your patience. Car traffic during the day will almost certainly be part of your vacation experience here. There will be days and hours that are less congested - perhaps due to not perfect weather or seasonal lulls, but just expect traffic and be pleasantly surprised if you don't run into it.

Here Are the Best Ways to Get Around in Sedona

1. Have Access to Your Own Vehicle

Whether that means renting a car or driving your own into town, having access to your own vehicle will allow you to drive to trailheads, explore Uptown at your leisure, and procure food more easily. There will be times where you'll "move on" to the next place of interest at a different pace than you originally expected, or the restaurant that you wanted to dine in ended up requiring reservations weeks in advance. Having your own car will allow you to be more flexible, thus resulting in a more enjoyable experience.

We've partnered with RentalCars.com because they seem to consistently have the lowest rates on great car rentals in Arizona.

2. Take Hotel or Tour Provided Shuttles When Possible

If you are going on a tour, want to wander around town or are going out to dinner (with a reservation already made) and the tour company or hotel you are staying at provides transportation - take it! Sedona can be difficult to find parking in. Also, it allows for you to gape out the window and enjoy the views without having to worry about directions and other drivers who are gaping at the views as well.

3. Don't Rely on RideShares

If you are able to book an Uber or Lyft in Sedona, consider that a rare and lucky opportunity. They're not readily available in this town. Flagstaff is located just 30 miles north of Sedona and is a vibrant college town with a lively local nightlife scene. RideShare drivers tend to spend more time in Flagstaff as there is less traffic and more opportunity for work. In other words - taking a taxi will work out better for you if you don't have access to your own vehicle.
