KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Brighton

  • Brighton is a small city, and many of its attractions are spread across different areas. Renting cheap car rentals in Brighton will provide you with the freedom to explore these places without worrying about public transportation. For instance, Barr Lake State Park, which is a popular tourist destination in Brighton, is located 10 miles away from the city center. By getting a Brighton car rental, you can easily reach there and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Using a car rental in Brighton is also a more convenient option, especially if you are traveling with family or a large group.
  • Denver International Airport (DEN) is the closest airport to Brighton and is about 31 miles away. The car rental counters at DEN are located on level 5 of the Jeppesen Terminal. There is a free shuttle bus that runs between the terminal and the rental car lots. The shuttle pick-up area is located outside the terminal on level 5, and the shuttle drop-off area is at each of the rental car lots. Cheyenne Regional Airport (CYS) is about 76 miles from Brighton. Cheyenne Regional Airport has only one rental car company available, Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The rental car counter is located in the baggage claim area.
  • Driving cheap car rentals in Brighton is generally easy and straightforward, but there are certain things to keep in mind. Pedestrians are the top priority in crosswalks, and drivers are required to yield to them. It's important to be aware and watch out for pedestrians when driving car rentals in Brighton, especially in busy areas around the center. Bicycles are a common sight in the city, especially during the warmer months, so it's important to share the road with them and maintain a safe distance. Trucks are also a common sight on the highway, so it's important to be patient around them, as they may take longer to maneuver or slow down.
  • Rush hour in Brighton typically occurs between 7:00 am-9:00 am and 4:30 pm-6:30 pm during weekdays. The roads that are most affected during peak hours are Interstate 76 and US Route 85. Driving cheap car rentals in Brighton during the winter months can be challenging due to the presence of snow and ice on the roads. Drivers will need to be mindful of slippery road conditions and reduced visibility, and take extra precautions when driving a Brighton car rental. Additionally, the roads outside of town can get muddy in the spring and summer months due to the region's agricultural activities.

Staff was very helpful and accommodating, easy pick up. I even got a phone call a few days ahead of pickup to review some details so that the pick up would go smoothly and quickly.

Car was great. Staff was very rude, ignored us at first. There’s an extra charge for airport shuttle which was then found to be unavailable. Will not rent from AVR again.

The only positive experiences was front desk person Mary Anne and shuttle driver John. Other than the experience was unpleasant. Upon arrival to the airport we had to call the Van company for the shuttle which is not a problem but at no point did the email state that. The office must have multiple businesses in it because you walk in and a room full of people don’t acknowledge you because not their chair not their problem I guess. Once I figured out I needed to speak to Mary Anne she was quick and efficient specially giving she was the only person helping. The car I received seemed capable and the standard for traveling through the Colorado Rockies which I did mention. Later on after driving two hours I realize the SUV GMC Terrain is not capable of getting me up a portion of streets to get to my location. I had to get a tow. While dealing with Roadside Assistance and Customer support I was given the run around and wasted about 3 hours calling/talking and waiting for call backs while being transferred to people who couldn’t help. Eventually customer service told me they couldn’t help me due to there being “nothing mechanically wrong” with the car and “weather conditions” affecting a tow. After wasting my time with all this I decide to waste a day driving back to Denver to swap cars. Mary Anne was able to give us a more capable car with newer tires and got the job done for the rest of the trip. This company also doesn’t tell you that you need to use a third party parking shuttle service that is an additional expense for car drop off out side of their office hours. That clarity before hand would have been appreciated. Overall the experience was frustrating and wasted precious vacation time.

Pickup was extremely slow. Location is very far from airport. Shuttle driver was efficient and polite, but this place is so far away that it just takes awhile to get there.

It should be made VERY clear that this rental location is very far outside of the airport. Also, the pickup van does not just come for transportation, one must call them to be picked up, then wait another 20 minutes. Lastly, if you do not return your car by 3:45pm, you have to use another place to bring you back to the airport, which is an additional $35 fee. Everything about this place felt sketchy and low quality.

I was not aware that the rental office closed at 4 PM my flight was delayed and I did not get to the pickup spot until nearly 4 so I was not able to get my car. Quite surprised at the early closure and that the rental confirmation was no clear on that

After we finally found the place and got checked in - everything was done and then they told us we were not allowed to take the car to our destination- they should have been more up front about it

I didn’t like anything thing. 1st thing, I started booking for a SUV as shown in the details and pictures and when I went on location to pick up they told me that they either a mini van or nissan versa a sedan so I am totally disappointed with the lie. 2nd thing, on reaching the location I have to wait for almost 30 minutes to pick up a vehicle which I already did the work online which basically wasted my time. 3rd thing, staff was pretty rude, asked them if I can upgrade with some better vehicle instead of versa and he replied sorry you can’t. I mean are you guys running the business with limited vehicle if so you should mention that.

When I got there it turned out that the car had limited miles.(75). When in the add said unlimited and was not able to drive out of state. Which was not clear on the website.I was not able to cancel and just like that I lost 600. I had to go find a last minute car which ended up paying more. Will not book a car ever again

They don’t even appear to exist. They didn’t answer their phone, and there was no car there or people at the agency. The phone number went directly to voicemail, but the mailbox was full. We couldn’t even find the agency. We didn’t get the car.

I never received the product. When I called the Rental Phone line, nobody would answer or return messages. A miserable experience with York Car Rental. I ultimately went to Avis.
