The gal at counter was not present. Would not let me charge to a new card, had to be the one one file. Gave me keys to a suv that had seat buckles all chewed up by a dog, totally broken. She knew I had 3 car seats or kids, too. No empathy, horrible service. I would do anything I can in future to avoid Budget rental car at this airport.

UnprofessionalThey gave me a car with a service light and told me it was fine and to keep going. Then they charged me a whole day because I had to go back through the airport to the car and fill out the mileage and gas level form myself and didn't note the original time I went to return the car.

4.0 OkayJan 27 2022
Overall experience was good. The problem is we rented a full size Fusion or similar. We had 4 adults and luggage. The counter rep said we were only entitled to a Prius midsize vehicle. I showed him our agreement and he stated that the vehicle type code was only for a midsize. He said he could upgrade us to the full size we rented for $35. In the need to continue our trip, I agreed and he printed out our new contract where our total cost went from $318 to well over $500. I said this was unacceptable and he finally agreed to give us the full size that was contracted. Not sure if this was just a typical up charge scam, but something you should not have to deal with during a hectic travel day.

The Dollar sales person lied to us. Her sales tactics were deplorable. I booked this car months ago. When we got there she told us that one of the ways along our drive may be closed from time to time snd that if that’s the case we couldn’t use a car but needed an SUV to get back. We are savvy travelers but also this was our first time To Vail. She told us she could give us a SUV but it would cost a bit more. But we would foe sure be ok. We said ok. It was TWICE the amount of money. The road was closed on the way back. But the other route the road was paved and fine and actually was so narrow that it would have been easier to navigate in our car vs the suburban. I also asked if we could change the car rental from 5 days to three as we didn’t need the car the whole time. She said no, it was one price and that was it. I’m certain that was a lie too. When we went to return the car I wanted to talk to someone but there was no one there. This is the most disgusting service I’ve ever received.

NothingWas there 45 minutes after rental pickup time due to baggage/plane. Tried to charge me double price. Didn’t have my car and upgraded me to minivan. Which was my friends minivan right behind me. Had to rent another car from Hertz since they screwed us and had to pay 3x amount. BS!

They existThey gave my car away to another customer despite having a reservation. Then threatened to charge me over $1,500 for my one-way rental that was less than $300, because they didn't have any cars that were designated for one way. The reason they gave for my car not being available was that there was an error in their computer system that gave away too many of the one-way rentals and could not care less about my situation.
8.4 ExcellentApr 11 2019
Staff was friendly and efficient. Drop off separate from airport terminal so best to drop off all luggages before returning car.If pick off can be at the same location as pick up, then it is just across the street from terminal.
5.2 OkayMar 26 2019
Significantly overcharges for liability insurance compared to all other companies.
7.2 GoodFeb 1 2019
Staff was very nice and courteous.Car was older and had several dents and damage when we picked it up. (42000 miles) I went back in to tell them of thedamage but im not sure all was noted prior to my taking the car.

1.9 HorribleSep 14 2021
I had to argue against an additional $230 in fees on top of my prepaid “total.” At pick up they tried to charge my card the entire prepaid fee (already paid) plus $200 as a deposit. Had to argue that as well. Just be aware that fees may be tacked on due to state or local taxes not accounted for in the prepaid total. Also, I was charged for insurance I opted out of. Super frustrating. Just feels like a scam when you have to scour your receipt to determine what the actual charges are and what the actual deposit is … and why. The concept of pre-paid is lost on Hertz.

The representative from the pickup location wasnt at his desk. We had to wait for 40 mins. Called every phone number available and no solution was provided.Had to go look for him in the parking lot. When the representative arrived, he didnt apologize or explained himself. He was rude and arrogant.Fire this guy!

NothingRate was fantastic. However, they required a $200 deposit on a credit card. While I understand this is standard procedure with debit cards, I've never had to pay a high deposit with a credit card. As a result, we could not pick up the car, leading to a missed flight in Denver great frustration.

I arrived at around 2:00 pm. My reservation was canceled because I was mor than 2 hours late. I didn’t know that they cancel all reservations more than 2 hours late. Had to pay $350 extra to rent the SUV or not renting at all. I’ve never heard of any rule like that, but the manager kept treating me like she was making me a huge favor. Definitely not renting with them again.

The service at the Thrifty location in Gypsum was horrible!!!
2.0 MediocreDec 27 2021
Horrible experience. Downgraded my vehicle to smaller than advertised car originally reservered. They also left me waiting for my reservation upon arrival. Thrifty has no sign in the Vail airport itself but only at remote building outside the airport location. They also make you sign off on paperwork that car is in perfect condition before even allowing renter to inspect the vehicle. Never again.
2.0 MediocreOct 22 2018
Would not honor Kayak pricing!!Beware! Watch out for deceptive pricing!! Made an online reservation with Kayak for a certain price - even had a confirmation- however, a confirmation email from Thrifty showed a higher price. When I contacted Thrifty in Gypsum, they would not honor the Kayak pricing. Good thing I carefully read the Thrifty email or I would have been stuck at the airport with the higher price. Cancelled reservation and rebooked with Hertz.

Good enoughThe car worked and get us where we were going throughout the trip. The price was great.After checking in, I went to the car and discovered the low tire pressure light was on. When I went back in to the counter, the young woman had already left to go home! An airline employee called her, she returned and today me not to worry... she had checked the tire pressure that morning. As it turned out, the tires were fine, but the light stayed on and there was no way to reset it (the button it showed in the owner's manual was non-existent, and the employee had no idea how to help...). I am glad the tire never went flat, but it was a worry to have that list on constantly (this is from past experience with my personal car, which means ^this is serious^ in my personal vehicle!!!!

Top tips for hiring a car at Vail Eagle County Airport

  • A great feature of this small airport that has all of seven gates for airline traffic is that finding everything in the airport is rather easy. Once you pick up your bags from the baggage claim area, you will find all of the companies that offer car rental at Vail Eagle County Airport (EGE) have counters adjacent to the baggage claim just to the east in the terminal building.
  • One of the benefits of car rental at Vail Eagle County Airport is that it acts as a convenient form of transportation to make the rather long trip to an amazing spot like Vail. There is bus service and taxi service available, but buses can be a hassle, especially if you are carrying a great deal of winter gear. While taxis let you carry more, the cost for the ride can be exorbitant. That is why a rental car is a great combination of convenience and cost-effectiveness.
  • When you are ready to return your car rental at Vail Eagle County Airport the process is quite easy. As you approach the small airport along either Interstate 70 or Highway 6, you'll see plenty of signage directing you to the airport parking lot where you will return your rental car. Once you are there, you can park in an appropriate location for your rental car company, take your keys and your contract, and then drop them in the provided dropbox. If you do need to speak to staff about your rental, they are available at the customer service counters for your convenience.
  • Because this is an airport that serves an area known for a lot of outdoor sports activities throughout the year, you will find that there can be long wait times for picking up a Vail Eagle County Airport car rental, especially during times when people will travel here like on weekends or during holidays. That is why it is such a good idea to reserve a car with one of the rental car companies here before you make your trip.
  • Book your car hire at Vail Eagle County Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
