KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lakewood

  • Very few things come with the excitement of vacationing or even going on a business trip in a new city. If you're currently planning a trip to Lakewood, Colorado, one of your major concerns could be how to get around in and out of the city. Sometimes public transportation can be confusing and hard to keep up with, so renting a car makes a lot of sense. You'll have a GPS navigational system that’ll help you get to any corner of the city without getting lost, and you'll have the ability to explore and tick off everything on your bucket list at your own convenience. With a rental car in Lakewood, you could explore Red Rocks Park, which is just 12 miles away, or as far as the Garden of the Gods, which is about 71 miles away, all at your own pace and time. Convenient, right?
  • Once you arrive at the Denver International Airport, you'll find the rental car counter on the airport property. The car rental agencies provide courtesy shuttles that take customers from the Jeppesen Terminal directly to the rental car counter. To get to the shuttle, go from Terminal Level 5 on Island 4 through doors 505 and 513 on the east side or through doors 504 and 512 on the west side. You can pick up your car of choice from several car rentals in Lakewood, including Enterprise, Alamo, Avis, Dollar, Thrifty, and Payless.
  • There are several intersections in Lakewood you should watch out for pedestrians, starting with West 2nd place and Union Blvd. West Mississippi Ave and South Watson Blvd, and West Colfax Ave and Kendall Street are notorious for pedestrian accidents. Many intersections in Lakewood are, so be watchful when cruising around the city. Cyclists are legally allowed to ride in the street, so stay out of bike lanes and make sure you understand cyclist hand signals and open car doors cautiously.
  • An ideal time to stay away from Lakewood roads if you want to escape a total traffic gridlock is between 5pm and 6pm. The 1-70 and 1-25 can be especially backed up, even on weekends, with the morning commute between 7am to 8am. During winter, expect to find black ice, splashback, and snow ridges on Lakewood roads, which makes having the right type of car a significant aspect of your trip.
  • Book your car hire in Lakewood at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Lakewood are around 9% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Lakewood

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Lakewood?

    If you're in Lakewood for a business trip or intend to stay within town, an economy, compact, or immediate car will do just fine. However, if you intend to explore some of the rocky attractions in Colorado, having a four-wheel-drive SUV is more preferable. The same goes for travelers venturing in the city during the rainy or winter seasons when the roads can be quite slick and require traction.

  • What’s the speed limit in Lakewood?

    Once you get your car of choice from Lakewood car rentals, you need to understand that Lakewood is a home rule city with a maximum speed limit of 25mph unless otherwise posted. If you explore Colorado, keep in mind that open road highways have a limit of 40mph, rural highways, whether two-lane or four-lane divided have 55mph and 65mph where allowed. On rural interstates, keep the speed limit to 65mph, and 75mph posted, and when you venture into open mountain highways, the limit should stay at 40mph. Winding roads and narrow highways with blind curves have a 20mph limit.

Pros:

Fantastic staff and great service. Kind, responsive, professional, just a pleasure to work with.

Cons:

Location does not allow after-hours key drop due to roving car-theft gangs. Maybe a better/stronger drop box could work?

Cons:

The woman who serviced us upon arrival was very rude. Especially, with the drop off. We were supposed to do a key drop off box. The place suspended that activity and never let us know. There was nowhere to leave the car and we didn't know what to do. She must have seen us from a distance since the office was closed and came over to ask about us. Her response was well today is your lucky day. not, I'm sorry for the inconvenience we should have contacted you telling you our policy has changed nothing.

Our rental was cancelled as we stood in the parking lot after driving over an hour to get it. It would have been appreciated if Enterprise could have gotten ahold of us before we got there or planned better in order to have enough cars to cover their rentals.

We got to budget at DIA around 11:30pm on 2/9/24. There was a huge line. It was not moving. I asked people who had been in line for 90mins and they still had half way to go. Terrible! So slow. Miserable. We called uber and went to our hotel. Budget at DIA: horrible experience.

Pros:

The staff was nice, they were helpful

Cons:

The car was late to drop off and was not cleaned out but we were going on a family trip so we needed to leave. There was a nail in the drivers side tire and we used fix a flat and after hours drop off so I could not tell them. Not sure if the nail was in the tire when we picked it up but we were far from any towns and limited cell service so we did what we could do.

Only issue was Avis Lakewood overcharging me at return. They quickly fixed this after I called customer care, but I don't appreciate having to find extra unauthorized charges on my credit card and spending time on the phone to get it fixed.

Sure did appreciate the staff Avis Lakewood has. They were all so helpful. Fast and friendly. The gentleman that came to get mileage from the car went above and beyond. He took note I hurt my leg and could not walk well. When we got inside he brought out a stool so I could sit & made sure I was comfortable. 👍 Staff over all at that location great. Good job crew. 👏
