Hit the mark
Pros: The agent introduced himself with a handshake and positive attitude. Offer us bottled water and went the extra mile. For weary travelers-it was welcoming. Our car was in excellent condition and ready when we arrived.

out of state trip
Pros: The price was decent as we only had 2 weeks for our trip to rent a car. The airport had no cars in our class and provided free upgrade.
Cons: The person handing us the keys knew little to nothing about the Nissan Rogue had we had to figure out lights and wipers since it was raining. The SUV seats were not comfortable.

Pros: Excellent customer service-- 100% all about customers. I'm deaf and they knew immediately what to do -- paper and pen! I love enterprise because of how they wanted to make me happy. I've used their services for years and they have not made my smile turn upside down at all. Thanks!!
Cons: The car strongly reeked of cigarette smoke. Used the car for 8 days and it still reeked. That is the only downside-- I had to buy air freshener and used it every single day. Is smoking allowed in rental cars??

Airport rental
Pros: The vehicle was great, a Chrysler Pacifica, although there was a bit of an issue with a tire that was thumping slightly which was really only noticeable at lower speeds. The price was good to, but I wish I'd have rented for 2 full weeks since the extra day nearly double the cost.
Cons: Picking up and dropping off at the airport was terrible. Had to go into the terminal both times and there was no tental car shuttle, only the airport shuttle. Had to circle the airport twice and then walk... Seemed like a quarter mile. Definitely will fact this aspect in next time

Mixed experience
Pros: Cute, economical and reliable vehicle. The guy who rented the car to me was friendly and efficient.
Cons: The seats were very uncomfortable for me. I had to get a pillow to put behind my back to be comfortable. When I rented the car, they did not tell me that when I returned it, I needed to park my car in the Hertz lot and take my paperwork and keys into the airport to turn it in. Noone told me and there are no signs. I had to ask at another rental return office when I arrived. Luckily I had enough time to figure it out and get the car turned in.

STUCK
Cons: I was in the mountains and b weed something reliable through the snow. Being a car rental in the mountains, you'd think they would rent me a car that was good for that. However, I got a car with bald tires giving me no shot to get through the snow. I couldn't drive my car the entire time I was there because I was stuck in the driveway. When it was finally time for me to leave, I had to be towed out of the snow TWICE. It was miserable and a waste of my money.

Kayak Reservation denied at rental counter
Pros: not much to like.
Cons: Hertz denied my reservation at the counter because they required that I present the same physical credit card used to book the reservation. Kayak only instructed that I must present any credit card in my own name. Hertz said that Kayak gave the wrong instructions and it was not Hertz's fault. I was forced to pay for the rental car a second time on a different credit card for a higher amount. Even though the Hertz agent said that I would not be charged for the original reservation, I was, and I have had to dispute the original charges to get a refund. I won't use Kayak or Hertz again.

Solid car...cracked windshield :(
Pros: The car was solid. Our flight was delayed and the person behind the counter waited for us even though it was close to closing.
Cons: We noticed a small crack in the windshield upon picking it up and didn't think anything of it. The crack got bigger due to temperature change. When we returned, the company made us fill out a form and said we'd be responsible for the crack...even though it was there when we picked it up. A flat tire, I understand but a crack in the windshield? I feel like they should comp us days since this is a serious hazard and they should inspect all of there windshields before renting out their cars.

Nice, Clean Car - too expensive
Pros: The courtesy counter experience was very quick, friendly and efficient. I was given the Chevrolet Cruze, which was a comfortable drive, but $88 per day was way too expensive.
Cons: The price. it should have been no more than $50/day, tax included! $88 is ridiculous! Three days was essentially a weekly rate.

Horrible and Expensive Rental Experience
Cons: COST and GAS RIPOFF!!! I rented a minivan for a family visit. Picked up the van and almost immediately the tire air pressure light came on. I put air in all the tires and the light went out. The next morning, this light came on again. I put air in the tires again and drove back to Avis to exchange the car. On the way the light came on again so I knew there was a serious problem. I filled the tires for the 3rd time and drove straight to the Avis place. Upon arrival they offered to change the tires or swap to a new vehicle. I elected to swap. They then proceeded to charge me $9.99 per gallon for half tank of gas. When I complained that the vehicle had a problem since I picked it up and I brought it straight back, they said they weren't sure where the tire problem occurred and I should've filled it first before returning. I said I was concerned about the tire going flat and being stranded, they shrugged. As result, my $220 3-day rental cost me $406!!! Never again.

Pros: They rented a car with an already flat tire.
Cons: They could have looked at the car before renting it. Then after I mentioned the problem, they could have fixed it. Instead someone came and filled it with air, that then leaked out again. Had to catch a ride back to the airport and abandon the car in a gas station parking lot.

Pros: The staff at Colorado Springs airport was friendly and efficient as well as the customer service representative I spoke with about my extra charges and despite the fact that he couldn't eradicate the excessive charges he was kind and sincere.
Cons: I am aware that Gunnison Airport has few travelers this time of year and was not surprised when there wasn't an agent at the desk when I returned my vehicle, however I was unknowingly charged a $100 cleaning fee and would like an explanation of why at the time I returned the car.

WENT BACK TO PAY AND THEY SAID HE NEEDED DEBIT CARD AND THEY WERE CLOSING SO I WOULD HAVE TO GO TO THE AIRPORT, 20 MINUTE DRIVE, TO ADD DRIVER. VERY POOR INFORMATION AND SERVICE.

Top tips for renting a car in Colorado Springs

  • Probably the most iconic natural attraction of Colorado are the Rocky Mountains. Colorado Springs is nestled on the eastern side and a hire car puts travelers within a 2.5 hours’ driving distance of the popular Rocky Mountain National Park. When coming to this city, visiting the park is a must and there is no easier and better way to do it than with your own car.
  • Colorado Springs Airport is about 12 miles from the city and offers various car hire agencies like Alamo, Budget, and Enterprise. Conveniently pick up a hire car from one of the many counters located in the baggage claim area and start your time in Colorado Springs with ease. Signs indicate the way out of the airport and via the Hancock Expressway and travelers will be in Colorado Springs within 20 minutes.
  • Colorado Springs is popular for its many scenic routes, yet there are some passes that are very narrow and may be a challenge for people who are scared of heights. Driving in the mountains also means adjusting your speed and navigating carefully when coming to such passes, such as the Wolf Creek Pass. Also always opt for a low gear when going up and down the mountain so the brakes don’t overheat. Switch off the air conditioning as well to prevent the vehicle from overheating, as otherwise some functions may not operate properly anymore.
  • Driving through Colorado Springs makes for an epic experience, but winter conditions can be severe and bring snow and ice. Make sure the hire car is properly equipped with snow tires and even snow chains. When conditions are very wintery, also carry an emergency kit in the car, including a flashlight, ice scraper, blanket, and some snacks, just in case you get stuck and it takes a while for someone to reach you. Driving in Colorado Springs should be no problem -- as long as you’re properly prepared for it.
  • Book your rental car in Colorado Springs at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Colorado Springs?

With mountainous regions and snow in the winter, a 4-wheel drive car is a very good option for Colorado Springs. Good road grip is not only essential for winter road conditions, but also for the gravel roads in the mountains year-round. A pickup truck will provide the required road grip and a truck bed for bulky luggage, but an SUV is probably a better choice when wanting to drive not only around but also inside the city.

Winding mountain roads only permit 20 mph -- it is crucial to adhere to this speed limit, as they often have blind curves and narrow lanes.
