Top tips for hiring a car at Denver Airport

  • If you’re looking at car hire at Denver Intl Airport, you’ll see that it’s a very simple process. Once your flight has landed and you’ve made it through passport control, you will find the car hire company desks located in the Jeppesen Terminal on Level 5. To make matters even easier and cheaper for you, we recommend booking your hire car online prior to your departure through KAYAK. That way you won’t have to wait in line at the car hire desks and can go directly to the shuttle bus terminal, located on island 4, outside doors 505-513 on the east side and doors 504-512 on the west side. Follow the signs at the car hire desks; each company has its own dedicated shuttle bus to the car collection points.
  • Denver Intl Airport car hire is a convenient and popular way to travel around Denver and explore the natural beauty of Colorado state and the Rocky Mountains in particular. Denver city has a good public transportation system, and you can catch a train from the airport to the city for only around $10.50 (£7.60) which takes about 35–40min. However, having to rely on trains and buses to see the city and its surrounding areas can take its toll, with waiting times and travel times likely to be longer; renting a car is much more advantageous. With so much to see in and around Denver, you’ll need a hire car to help you fit in all the sights.
  • Once you’ve collected your hire car, you can get started on your trip into Denver almost immediately. All the major car hire companies are based on the Pena Boulevard, a major road that connects Denver Airport with the city. It takes around 35min to drive the 26 miles to the city centre, connecting Pena Boulevard to the I70 East motorway. Going north toward the Rocky Mountain National Park or south towar Colorado Springs, you can easily access the E-470 motorway from Pena Boulevard. It’s important to note that E-470 is a toll road, so check with your rental company regarding their toll collection policy, as the fee will automatically be registered to the vehicle’s number plate.
  • When it comes to car hire at Denver Intl Airport, make sure to take note of the business hours of your car hire company, so that you’re aware what time the car will need to be returned. In some cases, like with Hertz, they require you to confirm your return time upon booking. However, policies always differ depending on which company you hire a vehicle from. So, if you’re planning on returning the vehicle outside of standard office hours, we recommend you notify the company with as much notice as possible.

I was charged a lot more than quoted. The office wasn't wheelchair accessible so I had to get out of the chair which was very painful. The agent was so unfriendly and unhelpful and did the opposite of help us. I wouldn't book with Fox again unless I get a partial refund - which I have requested.

It was uncomfortable. It wasn't horrid, but it wasn't decent either. The shuttle that picked us up from the airport was so old that bits of it were being held together by packing tape. (Not even duct tape!) The driver seemed annoyed to even be there, and when I asked how long the drive was to the rental place, gave me an annoyed answer of "We go in two minutes!". The guy who originally helped us at the counter, Miguel, was fantastic, but despite me having made a reservation for a smaller SUV, all Fox had to offer was a massive Toyota 4runner. Miguel tried to find something closer to the reservation and in the end, no luck. The car was clean-ish, but had stains in several places and grease on the inside of the windshield I had to clean myself for a clear window. I was offered a "locked in" rate to pay for refilling the gas tank at $3.60 rather than have to refill it before bringing it back, and rather than save me money Fox charged me for a full tank, even though I brought it with half a tank, possible more. (Filling it from 3/4 tank had been $48 @ $3.90/gal, and Fox charged a full tank for $89 despite there being just slightly under half in the tank.) When dropping the car off, there was some major confusion between two of the shuttle drivers as to whether they COULD take us to the hotel, or strictly to the airport. (Our original plan was to take the shuttle to the airport, then the hotel shuttle to the hotel, since Fox wasn't open early enough for us to drop the car off early and then go to the airport.) Eventually the one who insisted we could be taken to the hotel switched vehicles and took us there (but needed me to look up directions for him) and the whole thing just felt awkward. There were a lot of little extra fees tacked on after the fact. I won't be using their service again.

Pros:

Car was fine, pick-up and drop were fine. My issue would be with the signage on the buses (on EVERY window of the bus) letting passengers know you are limiting the number of people onboard and requiring all to wear masks to protect us. And then the driver just keeps on letting people board - every seat was taken, people were standing and maskless.

Cons:

Actually complying with the signage

Pros:

The front desk gentleman was great and very helpful

Cons:

The vehicle was dirty inside and out, windshield has smudges all over the inside glass, car had not been vacuumed well, the outside was dirty as well. My first time using your service outta DIA and was kinda disappointed compared to my usual rental. Also the car was not in the best shape considering I paid for a premium vehicle, a Cadillac what was dirty, had a few dents and scratches, around the car the wheels were curb rashes pretty good. I get they are rental vehicles trust me I do, I used a rental often but when you pay for a upgrade you kind of expect and nice well kept vehicle for your money. The car also had a slight odor to it when we got, not sure exactly what it was but it went away about a day or two later so it wasn’t too bad. This review is not meant in a bashful way, it’s constructive feedback. Your customer service was wonderful as I said and customer service goes a lot farther in my book so for that I appreciate the service but the cars could use a litter more attention. Thank you

Stood in line for 30 minutes inside to check in for rental. After the check in, we were given a sticky note with numbers and told to stand outside by the white tent. Once there, we stood outside for almost a hour to pick up a random car that was given to us despite what was requested for the class we chose. The girl “issuing cars” was far from helpful and seemed annoyed if you had questions. Once in the car, the last renters trash was still in the doors, but overall a clean car with only 1100 miles.

Went to budget at the Denver international airport to get a car. Was quoted $182 on my reservation and now they are trying to charge me $332. Upon checking in the employee working at counter only asked me for my drivers license. He never asked me any questions besides my phone number, and what personal car insurance I had. I never signed anything. Was never walked through the rental agreement. Never asked if I wanted additional insurance or if I wanted to fill the tank myself. Nothing. Just asked to insert my card when I saw the amount was $532 on my card I asked and he said it was a $350 hold and I’d only be charged $182 when I returned the car. Now they are trying to charge me almost double—charging me $50 to fill a tank of gas that I filled prior to returning and even submitted gas receipts for it. They also are charging me for 3 additional days and refusing to refund me. REALLY UNHAPPY with the service.

The car was great. It was clean and a comfortable ride. No issues. Return was easy too

They use the Avis shuttle but do not tell you that. I wanted 45 minutes for the shuttle until driver told me that they were also picking up Payless customers. Picking up the car was awful. They tried to charge me for an upgrade after saying they didn't have any cars in the class I reserved. Then the car they assigned me to was already occupied by another customer that was also assigned the same car. It took a long time to actually get the car I reserved. I felt like I was being scammed. A different employee helped me after I was assigned an occupied car. He was great. He gave me the car I had reserved and did it quickly. No problems after that. Also, I could not reach customer service by phone to ask about shuttle. Calls would not go through or were not answered

Pros:

Pickup was easy and quick, that's where the positives ended.

Cons:

The car was obviously not cleaned, there were crumbs in the steering wheel and change in the center console, the windshield was impossible to see though at night because it was so dirty (like it had been sprayed to be cleaned and never wiped off), the rearview mirror was broken and jiggled while the car was in motion. When it came time for drop-off, the address on the contract printout was incorrect so the GPS would have taken us the wrong way had we not realized it was obviously the wrong way.

When entering criteria for identifying and communicating the type of rental car we needed, the online tool allowed us to say we had 7-people we needed to seat AND we had 5-bags we'd need to haul. The response for the car type we'd get was 'Car Type: Dodge Durango or similar, Make / Model not guaranteed'. We show up to Ace and let them know we have 7-people and 5-bags we need to fit in a vehicle, they inform us that when we put "5-bags" in the online application, that means we have 5-grocery bags to haul. :/ (I definitely raised my eyebrows as that was the silliest response). The Ace representative goes on to let us know that we'd need to "upgrade" (which trust me it was NOT an upgrade) to a minivan to haul 7-peole and 5-bags. They then inform me it's going to be 4x as costly as what I had rented for online. It was insane. There's more to the story as well, but that set off the bad taste with ACE. Can't believe they ripped us off that way.

I waited one hour to get my vehicle. The front only had 2 registers open. And they wanted to talk about all the attractions of Denver. One guy even got out his phone showing pictures to the customer about things he had done in Denver. Everyone was very frustrated. The charges me $200 fee for a deductible for smoking. Then once I returned it they only put $168 back on my card. Never again will they take my money.

bad, they robbed me. The person who assisted me did not accept my reservation and tricked me into believing that he did and generated a request for zero, it was a misleading offer, my total rent was $121 and they ended up charging me $300 or so. They even charged me for transportation to and from the airport when I went by private car, and they additionally charged me for the insurance for each day of use when I showed them my private car insurance. Very bad experience, they do not follow the reservation number that you give them at all. Completely intentional looking for a way to charge you additional charges that were not present at the time of my online reservation. I would never recommend it

Terrible ----- Here is why: Get to the counter and they would not rent to my son because he has a Colorado drivers license. We flew in to Denver, rented a moving truck ( from Budget ) and driving back to Pensacola, Florida. They had to have my ( Florida ) license, an extra 92 dollars and a copy of my insurance card before they would rent to us. NO WHERE DID IT SAY, NO LOCAL DRIVERS LICENSE WOULD BE ACCEPTED BEFORE PAYMENT WAS MADE. AFTER WE GOT THE AGREEMENT WHERE IT STATED THIS, PRICELINE WOULD NOT CANCEL OUR CONTRACT FOR ANY REASON. You should offer a refund or some kind of credit for this. Honesty goes a long way. Butch Vaillancourt

I guess with no one wanting to work, this is the new normal. There must have been a hundred people when we walked in the office. 2 people working. We waited an hour and heard rumblings that they were out of cars. 4 hours later we were pulling out of AVR with a car, which had stayed open late and another employee that had already clocked out came to the airport and picked us up. YAY AVR!!!

Cons:

Pros:

I didn't rent a car from Dollar. Their line was more than two hours long. After that, there would have been an hour wait for a car to be cleaned to become available. I rented a car from National next door to Dollar. It took less than five minutes to get in a car and drive away.

Cons:

Dollar was understaffed and overbooked. They completely wasted my time.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing. When we originally tried to book a car, we werent given the car we requested. My wife waited on the phone for 20 minutes before talking to a person who didnt offer a solution, a cancelation, or an upgrade, which we would have been happy to pay for. We decided to let it go and deal with it when we got to denver. Once there, we waited in line for 3 hours for our rental and was then refused a refund when i went to another car rental counter even though there is supposed to be a free cancelation. That's right. I waited in line for 3 hours and was refused a refund because i wouldn't wait longer! 150 people in line and 1 person working the counter. So, i paid for a car that i never received. This is easily the worst experience I've had with any company I've had in my life. No one should book with dollar through kayak. Ever. For any reason. Ever.

Cons:

Every aspect of this experience could have been better. Getting hit in the face daily with a hammer for an entire year would be better than having to interact in any capacity with dollar rent a car. This is the very first bad review I've ever written, but my experience was so very bad i hope it'll help someone else avoid the same horrible situation.

Terrible customer representatives at counter. Two didn’t know how to use the reservation confirmation number from a third party booking service. When their manager showed them, he pulled another woman who had a similar issue in front of me. I obliged patiently. But, when the next counter agent was free, she wouldn’t serve me as I was next in line as she said “he was taking care of me.” He was busy with the woman who I let step in front of me while he figured out how to complete a transaction from a third party. This happened two times befween tbe same two counter agents and it was absolutely ridiculous. If it weren’t Christmas I would have lost my temper. As it played out, my SUV didn’t have four wheel drive - a necessity for traveling into the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains in December. Further, they charged me for fuel when it was returned full. And I was also overcharged by $16 for fees and taxes that differed from my Rental Agreement issued at the counter. I’ll never book with Thrifty again. The small savings I may have incurred at booking were more than consumed by the excessive time I wasted waiting for cobbler service and subsequent communications about being overcharged. And to cap it all off, the Jeep Patriot had an annoying rattle in the rear of the car which was not fixable for my entire four day rental.

Super fun car and SUV to drive!

Cons:

The only issue I had was navigating the web site, but I believe that was both an issue using a third party rental and my lack of knowledge. Once I got ahold of a Silvercar representative the issue was resolved quickly.

We were told the cars were coming in faster than they could turn them over, but I find this hard to believe since it was the start of a holiday weekend. We waited over an hour in line, and then we FINALLY got our car.

I hated every moment dealing with National. Upon arrival, the employees at the counter didn’t bother asking us for our reservation information they just turned us and the other clients away. Not only did they sell our reservation, which we had done with more than two months in advance, but they offered no type of solution or assistance to the problem THEY CREATED. Their cavalier responses were “try booking with another company” or “Uber to your destination”. No one in the counter really made an effort to deal with myself or the other clients who were also left screwed over by their poor management and decision making skills. Each and every single one of the employees just dumped the issue to the next until finally they pulled a lame excuse out of their asses as to why they wouldn’t even try to help us. They wanted to hold on to the fact that “it was late at night and they couldn’t do much.” I did take their advice and took my business elsewhere, and the lady at Avis went above and beyond to help me and my group of 17+ get a car to get to our destination. She did not care that it was past 3am and her shift had ended. She did everything she possibly could as a simple customer service associate to help me and my family. Something that EVERY SINGLE ONE of the National employees claimed they could not do because “it wasn’t in their power” I wouldn’t make a reservation with National or it’s affiliates even if my life depended on it. Definitely will tell every single person I know that National is by far the worst company to rent with and the customer service offered at the Denver International Airport location is so poor, that Satan himself would feel offended.
