KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Denver

  • Explore all the attractions of Denver in the city or further out, conveniently with a rental car. The Golden Gate Canyon State Park is located about 30 miles from Denver, as are many parks and reserves dotted around the surrounding areas, and discovering them becomes considerably easier with a car. Passionate hikers can even go as far as the Rocky Mountains, about a 2-hour drive from Denver. Denver airport is also quite remote from the city center, so choosing a rental car is beneficial to quickly get to your next destination.
  • Car rentals have pick-up and drop-off points at Denver International Airport, so you can conveniently drive into the city and to a hotel or other accommodation. Shuttles from Jeppesen Terminal located on level 5 go directly to the Car Rental Center, free of charge. There are plenty of car rental services on offer at the airport, including Avis, Hertz or E-Z Rent-A-Car, among less popular ones which may have cheaper deals.
  • As with many bigger cities, Denver tends to clog up during rush hours and navigating a car through the intersections and narrow streets may take some patience and extra concentration. Denver has a reputation of having rather aggressive drivers who don’t always follow the road regulations, however if you allow extra time for each trip and double-check before taking a turn then driving should not be a problem. Pay special attention at big intersections alongside Colorado Boulevard, as they can be confusing and drivers do not always adhere to the right of way.
  • Try to avoid driving during rush hour, usually peaking between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays. Especially the Interstate 70 east-west-bound and the I-25 north-south-bound are regularly congested during peak hours and traffic jam delays can be up to an hour, so especially when you need to catch a plane, leave a significant amount of time. Also remember that the winters in Denver can be cold and provide difficult road conditions. Make sure to drive at reduced speeds and ensure that your rental car has appropriate winter gear.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Denver for €49 or less
  • Book your car hire in Denver at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Denver are around 1% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hire in Denver are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

Check if you actually need to use the toll road. We took the non-toll road and it was just as fast but free.
Verified travelerJan 2024
The driver was friendly and helped with our bags!!
Verified travelerDec 2023
Denver is like any big city, under construction and very busy roads. Just be very careful and lock everything up.
DesireeOct 2023
It's like any other major city, with one way roads and a few odd intersections. When driving into the mountains, if you're not used to it, remember that it's way harder to speed up going up mountainsides, so be sure to leave extra room when passing slower vehicles. Also, some smaller highways are a mere step above gravel roads, so opening a can of Coke 0 is a treacherous prospect after driving one of the bumpier roads for an hour.
Verified travelerOct 2023
Be ready for lots of congestion even not at rush hour. Signage is good, and the merging lanes are long enough to be relatively safe. Drivers were more courteous than California.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Make sure you have the right vehicle for the mountain roads you plant to drive (e.g., horsepower for steep passes, AWD for snowy or rough roads, etc.).
Verified travelerOct 2023
Toll roads are not worth it unless you travel during the weekends/holidays. Most worth it when you are traveling throughout the state.
Verified travelerSep 2023
If you need a full sized van, rent from AVR. That is ALL they rent & the prices were great.
Verified travelerSep 2023
It is pretty easy to avoid tolls so I don’t recommend paying the extra fees.

The roads on Denver, or Colorado in general are very easy to get around.

Denver is fine. The rest of the state is much better and more beautiful.
BaileyOct 2023
Denver is easy to drive in if you follow the signs
KeithOct 2023
This is a great price for a nice car
Verified travelerSep 2023
"Toll roads" on the GPS often simply meant that the express lane was being charged, not any of the normal lanes. As someone who has driven in Chicago regularly, Denver wasn't much of a challenge beyond just learning a new city.
Verified travelerNov 2023
You might need toll pass if you drive in boulder, but not aurora or denver. Lots of one way streets in downtown denver
CraigSep 2023
If you’re going to use a discount service, expect to get yourself to the rental desk instead of waiting for a shuttle.
Verified travelerNov 2023
A though check over should be executed and delivery personnel should be available to field questions a driver may have.

Be mindful of your surroundings. Watch out for wildlife.

Go with a larger brand name company.
BrianSep 2023

Verified travelerOct 2023
I would recommend giving yourself enough time to get to the shuttle location if you are renting from this company. Keep an eye out for additional fees. It will always be more than you anticipate.
ErikJun 2023
I thought I would need the toll tag. it turns out that besides the tollway right by the airport, it really wasn't needed much at all. Even with I 25 busy during all daylight hours, there really weren't any alternate faster routes using tolls. I also opted for the full tank of gas just to save myself time and hassle. Glad they have that option. We drove all around the area and tried to leave the car as close to empty as possible.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Rental location is easy to find and close to airport near other rental parking. Did not stay in Denver but was easy to travel through to my destination. Expect heavy traffic and allow plenty of time to return if flying out of Denver
Verified travelerJul 2023
Easy to avoid tolls. Even if you're going north on E470... no need for toll... there are other options.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Plan your trips when traffic is lighter. Not during peek times, and you shouldn't have any troubles.

Use Budget! You can reserve without penalty and the man at the Denver airport was so kind!

Been insanely thorough about checking out the car if you go with SIXT. They are not that careful about scratches and dings when they lend the car to you, but they are when you return it.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Even if you select Denver airport check the actual address of the pickup location just in case it is actually NOT the airport rental pickup location.
Verified travelerJun 2023
The rental facilities are off-site from the airport and require a shuttle from the terminal so plan accordingly.

Have PATIENCE and go check out the car options before getting in line so you can argue intelligently.

Using the toll roads makes Denver easier to navigate, and make sure you get the toll pass at the rental agency.

Definitely get the bigger engine vehicle if you’re going through the mountains.
GregMay 2023
Be aware of tolls immediately from the airport. Either buy the toll package or set your Google Maps to avoid tolls if you can spare the extra 10 or 15 minutes each way and you don’t plan to use toll roads on your trip. Also, bake in an extra 30 to 45 minutes in your airport journey back home due to rental car shuttles and terminal trams.

We specifically rented a full sized passenger van to be picked up at the Denver airport sight. We called the day before to make sure they had the van (we have had previous bad experiences) & discovered the they did NOT have a full sized van for us. They had one at another location, but, since we had booked through you, they couldn’t give us the same price for it, it would be nearly double the cost. Also, since it was less than 24 hours before pick up, they wouldn’t drive it to the airport location for us. We canceled our reservation.

It was uncomfortable. It wasn't horrid, but it wasn't decent either. The shuttle that picked us up from the airport was so old that bits of it were being held together by packing tape. (Not even duct tape!) The driver seemed annoyed to even be there, and when I asked how long the drive was to the rental place, gave me an annoyed answer of "We go in two minutes!". The guy who originally helped us at the counter, Miguel, was fantastic, but despite me having made a reservation for a smaller SUV, all Fox had to offer was a massive Toyota 4runner. Miguel tried to find something closer to the reservation and in the end, no luck. The car was clean-ish, but had stains in several places and grease on the inside of the windshield I had to clean myself for a clear window. I was offered a "locked in" rate to pay for refilling the gas tank at $3.60 rather than have to refill it before bringing it back, and rather than save me money Fox charged me for a full tank, even though I brought it with half a tank, possible more. (Filling it from 3/4 tank had been $48 @ $3.90/gal, and Fox charged a full tank for $89 despite there being just slightly under half in the tank.) When dropping the car off, there was some major confusion between two of the shuttle drivers as to whether they COULD take us to the hotel, or strictly to the airport. (Our original plan was to take the shuttle to the airport, then the hotel shuttle to the hotel, since Fox wasn't open early enough for us to drop the car off early and then go to the airport.) Eventually the one who insisted we could be taken to the hotel switched vehicles and took us there (but needed me to look up directions for him) and the whole thing just felt awkward. There were a lot of little extra fees tacked on after the fact. I won't be using their service again.

Car was fine, pick-up and drop were fine. My issue would be with the signage on the buses (on EVERY window of the bus) letting passengers know you are limiting the number of people onboard and requiring all to wear masks to protect us. And then the driver just keeps on letting people board - every seat was taken, people were standing and maskless.

Pros:

The front desk gentleman was great and very helpful

Cons:

The vehicle was dirty inside and out, windshield has smudges all over the inside glass, car had not been vacuumed well, the outside was dirty as well. My first time using your service outta DIA and was kinda disappointed compared to my usual rental. Also the car was not in the best shape considering I paid for a premium vehicle, a Cadillac what was dirty, had a few dents and scratches, around the car the wheels were curb rashes pretty good. I get they are rental vehicles trust me I do, I used a rental often but when you pay for a upgrade you kind of expect and nice well kept vehicle for your money. The car also had a slight odor to it when we got, not sure exactly what it was but it went away about a day or two later so it wasn’t too bad. This review is not meant in a bashful way, it’s constructive feedback. Your customer service was wonderful as I said and customer service goes a lot farther in my book so for that I appreciate the service but the cars could use a litter more attention. Thank you

I cancelled and received some of my money back, so that is why I rated the experience "good." The partial refund was better than other companies and it was fast. Much easier to deal with than other companies. Evidently the pick-up and drop-off point is the train station, that was the address. I found this confusing since I was looking at a website that supposedly had airport pick-up and return. When I drove my rental car(from Budget) back to the airport, I saw the SIXT lot. So now I'm even more confused as to where SIXT actually operates. If I could figure this location out, I might try SIXT again.

Pick up shuttle and lines were horrendous. It look two hours from waiting for the shuttle then waiting in line to actually get in the car. The car had stains and my final receipt upon return was $150 more than I had already paid and was quoted upon booking.

Car available with a full tank of gas, for a vehicle with 13,000 miles I expected the backup camera to work. The source of the vehicle did not have the windshield washer fluid filled, hence on returning the vehicle I had extreme difficulty seeing signs and other vehicles on the road and had to finish my trip to drop off the car with the driver’s window rolled down to see. Circumstances were very unpleasant and dangerous !

Stood in line for 30 minutes inside to check in for rental. After the check in, we were given a sticky note with numbers and told to stand outside by the white tent. Once there, we stood outside for almost a hour to pick up a random car that was given to us despite what was requested for the class we chose. The girl “issuing cars” was far from helpful and seemed annoyed if you had questions. Once in the car, the last renters trash was still in the doors, but overall a clean car with only 1100 miles. Drop off was easy and quick.

Went to budget at the Denver international airport to get a car. Was quoted $182 on my reservation and now they are trying to charge me $332. Upon checking in the employee working at counter only asked me for my drivers license. He never asked me any questions besides my phone number, and what personal car insurance I had. I never signed anything. Was never walked through the rental agreement. Never asked if I wanted additional insurance or if I wanted to fill the tank myself. Nothing. Just asked to insert my card when I saw the amount was $532 on my card I asked and he said it was a $350 hold and I’d only be charged $182 when I returned the car. Now they are trying to charge me almost double—charging me $50 to fill a tank of gas that I filled prior to returning and even submitted gas receipts for it. They also are charging me for 3 additional days and refusing to refund me. REALLY UNHAPPY with the service.

The car was great. It was clean and a comfortable ride. No issues. Return was easy too

Cons:

They use the Avis shuttle but do not tell you that. I wanted 45 minutes for the shuttle until driver told me that they were also picking up Payless customers. Picking up the car was awful. They tried to charge me for an upgrade after saying they didn't have any cars in the class I reserved. Then the car they assigned me to was already occupied by another customer that was also assigned the same car. It took a long time to actually get the car I reserved. I felt like I was being scammed. A different employee helped me after I was assigned an occupied car. He was great. He gave me the car I had reserved and did it quickly. No problems after that. Also, I could not reach customer service by phone to ask about shuttle. Calls would not go through or were not answered

Pickup was easy and quick, that's where the positives ended.

The car was obviously not cleaned, there were crumbs in the steering wheel and change in the center console, the windshield was impossible to see though at night because it was so dirty (like it had been sprayed to be cleaned and never wiped off), the rearview mirror was broken and jiggled while the car was in motion. When it came time for drop-off, the address on the contract printout was incorrect so the GPS would have taken us the wrong way had we not realized it was obviously the wrong way.

I request a car rental in Denver Airport and the reservation was made by mistake in Denver Downtown.

After incorrectly being given an electric vehicle with no instructions other than “there’s an app somewhere that will help you find some chargers” as I prepared for a 14 hour trip, I got stranded on the side of the road heading to a family emergency where two family members were having life threatening procedures. Once stranded, Hertz informed me that this was “just like if I drove into the desert for a music festival and got stuck without gas.” Hertz was less than helpful in solving the issue of a 14 hour drive turning into over 36. After informing 2 agents where we had left the vehicle and asking for what we needed to do as far as next steps, Hertz failed to have the vehicle towed for at least 3 days and or close out our contract which we were told would be done indefinitely. By day 4 of unreturned phone calls from Downtown Denver and The Hertz Cooperation overall we are at a loss for next steps.

The location was not DENVER AIRPORT but Denver center. This was very misleading!! I rent cars for years and this website was very unclear in the pick up location. Also to change it I had to pay $ 500 extra, that was double the amount of the whole week I was supposed to pay. Also the insurance was not included and they said I needed to include roadside service, that was more then $ 70 (almost more than I pay yearly at CAA+) , I was insured through CAA+ I found out later that day, but the office was already closed and there was not a direct e-mailaddress to contact the Denver location. Worst experience so far.

I had a reservation for a car at 8am, but when I arrived, there was no car available for me. I had to wait for an hour and 51 minutes until I finally got my car. Only to be told that the electric vehicle I rented only had a 10% charge and it was my responsibility to drive 8 blocks to a charging station and sit for an hour and 45 minutes while it charged BEFORE I could even start my trip. By the time the car was ready, my 8am pickup was now noon when I could start my trip. I was told I could return it at 10%, but how do you do that? Try to guess how much range you have and how to balance it so I'm not paying for power I didn't use. As it turned out, I returned it at 25-30%, so that's power ($7) I paid for and couldn't use. To make it worse, I'm sure you charged the previous renter $25 recharging fee for dropping it off empty then made me pay $30 to charge the car and kept the profit. A total scam. I came off a midnight flight arriving at 7am. You inconvenienced me by not having a car available for my reservation by almost 2 hours. Made me, as your client, do your employees job and charge the vehicle to the tune of another almost 2 hours before my rental could even begin. Then after two phone calls to customer service, I'm told I have to waste more of my time writing this damn letter. You have no respect for your clients, no respect for your agents that are running frantic trying to deal with irate clients all day long because you don't have enough vehicles to honor your reservations.

Terrible customer representatives at counter. Two didn’t know how to use the reservation confirmation number from a third party booking service. When their manager showed them, he pulled another woman who had a similar issue in front of me. I obliged patiently. But, when the next counter agent was free, she wouldn’t serve me as I was next in line as she said “he was taking care of me.” He was busy with the woman who I let step in front of me while he figured out how to complete a transaction from a third party. This happened two times befween tbe same two counter agents and it was absolutely ridiculous. If it weren’t Christmas I would have lost my temper. As it played out, my SUV didn’t have four wheel drive - a necessity for traveling into the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains in December. Further, they charged me for fuel when it was returned full. And I was also overcharged by $16 for fees and taxes that differed from my Rental Agreement issued at the counter. I’ll never book with Thrifty again. The small savings I may have incurred at booking were more than consumed by the excessive time I wasted waiting for cobbler service and subsequent communications about being overcharged. And to cap it all off, the Jeep Patriot had an annoying rattle in the rear of the car which was not fixable for my entire four day rental.

Pros:

Staff was professional

Cons:

Waited 90 minutes in line to get to the counter. Was given a sub compact at compact price and told the car was a compact. The contract said Ford Focus or similar not Ford Fiesta or similar

Pros:

Staff was great, drop off was easy.

Cons:

Apparently Dollar and Thrifty are renting out of the same building, and I waited a full two hours to get to the counter. The line was horrendously long. The only reason I stayed on time was that I got there early to see if I could get a car early, otherwise my schedule would have been blown completely out of the water. PLEASE figure out how to separate the two companies for now!!
