Easy location to accessStuck driving a cargo van with "Hertz" plastered on the side through the Rocky Mountains. Not the easiest of drives in a vehicle I was not comfortable driving.
6.0 Good10 Mar 2021
Pick up and drop off was quick and easyCar was much smaller than expected. Said Nissan Pathfinder or similar (and I know it says not guaranteed) but we got a Kia Sorento which was a lot tighter than we were planning for. Had to have bags in laps/etc. Why not just tell us exactly the car we were reserving? Doesn't seem that hard

Bad experience overallQuick drop off in Denver.First of all we waited 30 min for someone to come to the desk at the airport. They took their sweet time. All 3 of them were outside taking a break. Then took forever to give us the wrong car. Booked a small SUV. Ended up with a old expedition. Asked them to change it, said they didn't have anything else. Eventhough we saw at least 10 suv that was parked in their lot. Didn't argue as we were already behind schedule. Had to return it to Denver after driving 1/4 of our trip. Couldn't continue our trip with this. They still ended up charging 90% of the total cost.

Everything was Great. Fast service, nice clean car.I got a free upgrade and was told when handed the keys. It would be better to ask if the customer wants an upgrade and what type of car rather than the brand. I had a gas guzzler SUV. I could have changed it but found out when I saw the car in the lot, and didn't want to spend more time... I would have preferred an economical one.

Nothing. Never got our car...Phone was off the hook and rang busy all day when trying to inform rental counter that our flight was severely delayed. Arrived to find nobody at rental counter. Called after hours person and they would not come in to give us our car. Only after 10 mins did the agent call back because she felt bad and said that she would come in to get us a car. However the airport would be close by the time she came in. Addressed these issues on the return trip at the rental counter and they denied saying their phone was busy and made nothing but excuses...

Not billing me $400 to keep the rental car for an additional 15 hours of use due to a flight cancellation would've been nice.

Speedy pickup/dropoffCar was available in the class I previously chose - no waiting. Big plus.Car had quite a few scrapes & alot of rock chips - as long as I'm not charged, I don't care, but there were alot. I had never driven a push-button start vehicle - it should have been obvious, but without instruction, the car pic of the parking brake and the start/stop button made me think I had to make sure the parking brake wasn't on and I was in Park and then press Start. I had to acknowledge my ignorance and ask someone, in order to learn you had to press and hold the brake while you press the start/stop button; otherwise nothing. It would be great if agents asked about familiarity with this option, to avoid delay/embarrassment.

OK Car, Cheaper than Grand JunctionConvenient location at the airport. Car pickup was within very short walking distance. Easy pickup and drop off. Although Thrifty website says that they are located off of the airport, their desk is in the airport and cars are right there. My GPS programmed for their office took me to a nonexistent place. But just go to the airport.The car had several small dings on the doors and the front passenger and back seats were rather stained in spots. But it was a good car and did the job.

Very convenient and easy process.Staff should not be talking on their cell phones while interacting with customers. Rather discourteous.

Reservation was made FINE months ago! When I arrived, they had NO automobiles available for rental at all!
5.6 Okay12 Feb 2017
Price issueThe final price was higher than promised. $419 versus $368 due extra taxes and fees charged by airport authority. Reason stated was rental was made at an offsite location. However, the offsite location does not rent cars. The day before rental Enterprise called to confirm pickup. Stated the pickup would be at the airport. The clerks would not honor the rental agreement. I was not told of the extra fees and taxes until drop off.

We were charged an extra $100 for being half an hour early to pick up the car. The car smelled like cigarette smoke and Febreeze. The maintenance light was on with a dashboard message that said "maintenance required". We told the lady at the counter and requested a different car and her response was, "That's just for the oil change, you'll be fine. That's the only car you can take."

Drop off was easy. A bit confusing at first though. Would have been nice to have been told the process for drop off when picking up
2.8 Mediocre16 Sep 2020
Staff was mildly friendly at best. we waited in line for over an hour to get our rental. The first rental we received had not been cleaned and smelled terribly of smoke. After returning to the counter we were offered another vehicle without question which was appreciated. Upon further driving of the Toyota we were provided, the breaks were absolute terrible and would cause major vibration when attempting to stop. With driving to Telluride through the mountains, the breaking situation is not ideal by any means.Vehicles need to be updated and be properly maintained. Also, in that size airport, there needs to be more staff, there is no reason to be forced to wait an hour for a rental at any airport.
2.0 Mediocre27 Jul 2019
Mechanical condition of the car was the only thing that was good.The car was extremely dirty but inside and outside, and the associate at the desk said that it was because my flight was late by 4 hours and they were not aware of it. Their reason was that their detailing staff went home (it was still 4pm) because they thought there were no more customers coming!

2 hour rentalNo one at desk. Not the economy car I asked for. Don't charge me for a full tank of gas for a 60 mile drive. Had two bookings for me though first was not confirmed, just an exploration via Kayak.
4.0 Okay21 Feb 2016
The check on agent and lot tech in Montrose were very nice and tried their best to help us.Car was rated for 5 passengers but only had 4 seat belts. The back middle seat attachment was nowhere to be found by us or the Budget staff. We also had to wait over 30 mins for our car. Both facts are tough to swallow when they are charging $180/day for their car.

Car hire excess insurance in Montrose

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Montrose car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Montrose.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Montrose car rental.
