Car smelled like it might have been smoked in… had some outside repairs obviously. Not the best shape but sufficient.

Definitely was a friendly staff member who helped with car. What I did not like and this is on the company was that my 23 year old son was not allowed (due to computer flagging him as underage) to be a registered driver. That is ridiculous. He has a clean license, and to be then told the minimum age to drive the rental is 25. Unfortunately if this is the rule I will not be able to rent from Hertz/Dollar again.

Rented a car two separate times for this trip. This location was the smoothest car rental experience I've ever had. I rented from them the second time because of how good the experience was the first time. Consistently good service. Courteous staff, and quick checkout/return.

6.0 Good26 May 2021
I prepaid everything well in advance, so as not to have surprises. Well too bad, the experience was not the best, they withdrew $ 200 from my credit card that was not planned, then they charged me more money for unexpected fees. They should be chlorine and say the total bill and other conditions that they never mentioned, really Dollar's offer was only a few dollars cheaper and it turned out to be hundreds of dollars more expensive than the others it was a total fraud, I felt robbed, no They tell the truth when renting, everything is a lie with every intention of stealing your money

Couldnt rent a carCouldn't rent a car because I didn't have a credit card,only had a debit card and was charged 18.00 for insurance. I just wanted to get home to my family but was told I couldn't rent a car without a major credit card after I was already in line to pick up the car after booking online. Worst customer service ever!!

10.0 Excellent19 Jan 2018
There was no big deal about using a debit card instead of a credit card; there was no $200 charge above the rental to use said card. The service was friendly and the return was unbelievably quick. (The employee was at the car before we even opened the car door.)

I called about changing my dropoff location from Colorado Springs to Denver International, and inquired about pricing. I was told and I quote "changing your dropoff location is not a problem. They can change it in the computer when you pick the car up." After an hour drive, I go to pick up the car and the lady at the desk tells me there will be a two thousand dollar charge to change the drop off location. I explain to her what Budget customer service told me and that there must be a mistake on her end, to which she replied "It's not a problem, it's two thousand dollars." Then I called the customer service number again and the guy on the phone told me the same thing... the EXACT same wording...It's not a problem. Then he told me he didn't have a supervisor that I could talk to. Unbelievably rude and unprofessional staff in person and on the phone. Do yourself a favor and walk before you use Budget.

I picked up the vehicle for a long trip and brought it home only to find out that there was no windshield wiper fluid, steering fluid was very low, tire pressure was not correct or balanced, and the oil needed to be topped off. The location (Colorado Springs Airport) for the pick is not convenient for those with disabilities. It is a very long walk from the terminal out to the rental cars. The vehicle was clean and did not smell of smoke, food, or chemicals.

Excellent rates, and a great car. A few minor issues, no big deal—the car was provided to me with a “maintenance required - see dealer” light already on, and a nail in a tire that I had to replace at the cost of half a day during my trip.

Car was dirty. Looks like it wasn’t cleaned from last rental. Bugs still on grill and lights, crumbs on seats, windows were smeared and had a film on them and car stunk like Chinese food. Also car had a bad shake when we got up to freeway speeds. Overall one of the worst rentals I’ve had.

The staff in Colorado Springs and in Wilmington were very friendly and efficient. The Toyota Sequoia was very, very comfortable which made the trip enjoyable.I requested Serius XM in the vehicle but were never had it. One thing to improve is the time frame spent on trying to contact a PERSON when calling the Hertz 1-800 customer service number. The automated system kept telling me to go to hertz.com but the website did not help me with possibly correcting the issue with the satellite radio. That was very frustrating. You need to pay more people to answer the customer service phone number especially during the summer when more people are traveling.

The vehicle I needed was not available. I needed a 15-passenger van. That’s what I reserved but the best they could give me was a 12-passenger van. My price was only slightly reduced and my plans were severely inconvenienced. I was offered a second car, but I didn’t have a second driver.

They gave us a Hyundai Ikona which could not accelerate. Brake pads seemed to be worse for wear. We are lucky we survived as the vehicle had a lot of issues driving on the freeway and we had to be extra careful. We paid 600 for 3 days for a crappy car.

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.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.

They rented a car with an already flat tire.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.

Horrible and Expensive Rental ExperienceCOST 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.

Top tips for renting a car at Colorado Springs Airport

  • Colorado Airport (COS) has many ground transfer options to the city center, but none provides an excellent travel experience as a Colorado Springs Airport rental car when it comes to comfort, convenience, freedom, luxury, and flexibility. Freedom of movement to any spot in the city at any given time is the primary advantage of renting a vehicle from a car rental at Colorado Airport (COS). Whether you'd like to access the Creekside Event Center for business or US Olympic and Paralympic Training Center, you can do so straight from the airport. Additionally, a rental car is always at its peak performance, thanks to its regular maintenance and safety checks.
  • When traveling with family members or business colleagues, there may be more than one driver in the car holding a driving license. However, that doesn’t mean you have to take turns behind the steering wheel. Unless unavoidable, drive the rental by yourself until the last day you return it to your preferred rental company. If you plan to use an additional driver, kindly check the terms and conditions of the rental contract or consult with your rental agency.
  • Is your flight departure in a few hours, and you have to return your rental vehicle? Your car rental at Colorado Springs Airport (COS) provides a straightforward car return procedure. Follow the overhead signs leading to the car rental stations and complete the return procedure with your agent. Perhaps you have a late flight departure and you have to return the car during the after-hours; simply park the vehicle in the designated parking lot and lock it. Complete the contract and toss the car keys in the drop box situated in the returns section.
  • You won't find driving in Colorado Springs that difficult, but you can expect some bottleneck sections as you advance toward the city center in the morning. The rush hour starts at around 6 am, although many people start commuting to work before then. Traffic gets heaviest from 6.30 am to around 8.30 am and from around 4 pm to 6 pm, and we recommend that you drive during the off-peak hours to enjoy fairly moving traffic.
  • Book your rental car at Colorado Springs Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
