KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Denver

  • Denver is a large city with several iconic landmarks and a wide selection of attraction areas, and there is no better way to explore these hidden gems than Denver car rentals. In contrast to public transportation, car rentals in Denver offer convenience and flexibility. With your car rentals in Denver, you can conveniently explore Roxborough State Park, Rocky Mountains National Park, Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, and Fort Collins. Renting a car is cheaper than the cumulative bus fares, especially if you plan for an extended stay.
  • Getting your Denver car rentals at the airport lets you leap into adventure as soon as you land. Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is the nearest airport to Denver, about 29 miles from the city center. You will land here if you fly into the city. Car rental desks are at the Car Rental Facility in the Level 2 Lobby of the Hourly Parking Deck. Car rental shuttles operate between the Center and airport terminals. You will find Budget, Hertz, Avis, Alamo, National, and Enterprise.
  • Although driving your car rentals in Denver can be fan, there are distracted drivers just like in other cities throughout. It is unsurprising to encounter jaywalkers in the city despite being outlawed, as pedestrians occasionally ignore crosswalk regulations. Again, bikers are generally impatient and often disregard traffic light regulations. Denver is a bicycle-friendly city, so it’s natural to encounter cyclists. Sadly, they usually disobey traffic regulations. Be sure to pay attention to avoid hitting them. Communicate your intentions clearly to other drivers.
  • Although Denver has well-developed and marked roads, it experiences significant road congestion during rush hours. The dense traffic in Denver during rush hours is due to several residents accessing the city with personal vehicles. It is typically occasioned by vehicles and motorbikes jockeying for positing, causing considerable traffic snarl-ups. Usually, rush hours in Denver start from 6:30 am to 9:30 and from 3 pm to 7 pm. Endeavor to avoid congested areas during these hours, as they are brimming with vehicles and human traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Denver at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Denver are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

But a standard or intermediate is a great option if you travel in a group of three or four with less luggage. Denver has many off-road locations. If you plan to explore, consider a well-raised vehicle. In that case, an SUV is a good choice.

  • What is the speed limit in Denver?

    Observing speed limits in Denver is a great way to avoid getting into trouble with traffic authorities. Unless otherwise posted, the speed limit in Denver is 35 mph on urban roads, 70 mph on motorways out of the city center, 55 mph on suburban roads, 30 mph around built-up areas, such as residential and business zones, and 25 mph around school zones. The city has several posted speed limits. Pay attention to them since they override other traffic regulations.

  • Where are the best places to park in Denver?

    With so many vehicles in the city, finding a parking spot when driving your car rentals in Denver can be challenging. Still, hotels provide some of the best parking lots in Denver, including The Holy & Ivy Inn, Lake Norman Motel, Davidson Village Inn, Aloft Mooresville, and Tru by Hilton Mooresville. Reside on their property to enjoy free parking. If you opt for metered parking, look for a parking spot in downtown Denver. Carillon Garage, Union Deck, and Center City Green Parking Deck are places worth considering. Charges vary with the location. On average, it costs around $3 per hour.

Nothing was liked! My booking was for 4/4/24-4/6/24 and was scheduled to pick up my vehicle at noon on 4/4 but when I arrived at hertz there was no one there and sign on their door said they would be back at 3:00. There was no one at the location and therefore I was unable to get my rental. I returned at 3:30 and the sign now says back at 4:30…my entire day was off schedule and I missed an important meeting!!! I will never book thru kayak or hertz again.

Reserved a Malibu or similar. Showed me an SUV. Told him I didn’t want an SUV, Was told it was a free upgrade and they had nothing else. Said I don’t like driving SUVs. He went inside, I followed. Finally he handed me keys, pointed and said take that silver car. Rude, never went over for damage.

Pros:

The car was clean and drove nicely

Cons:

My boyfriend booked the rental for me online for a wedding we were attending out of state. He had to leave before me and when I picked up the car they wouldn’t let me use the rsvp b/c I didn’t have his cc. They told me I had to cxl my online rsvp and rebook at a different rate. The new rate was twice as much! Plus there was a non refundable cxlation fee of $80! It was 3 times what we experienced to pay and it took forever to get the car b/c there was only one guy working at this location. Never again will I use this company.

Pros:

Nothing. The booking experience was smooth and easy, but the inventory wasn't there to back up what was booked. I Called the location to verify the address and was told they had no cars available. That left me having to scramble to figure out what to do.

Cons:

I was able to book and they didn't have any cars. We were transporting teens to help with hurricane clean up and had to inconvenience a family that had other plans to get them there since there were no cars.

This car needs to be pulled from rental use. It has nearly 63000 miles and has been driven hard. Many dings and scratches on exterior. Suspension is shot and I could hear and feel every bump in the road. Finally, I had to get a jump start at the hotel for my final drive which was to the airport.
