KAYAK’s 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
  • Mini rental cars in Colorado Springs are around -50% cheaper than other car types, on average

I've lived here for over 20 years and just remind people to be patient, kind and obey the traffic laws and any rude you may encounter drivers have mostly come from out of state folks, looking at you California and New York!!
RichardAug 2023
We didn't really stay in Colorado Springs, but that area around all of the auto dealerships is very convenient, and convenient to I-25 as well as the road to Breckenridge and points North and West of COS.

- Pick up your car from National. - Drivers on the road were disciplined.

FAQs about renting a car in Colorado Springs

  • 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.

  • What’s the speed limit in Colorado Springs?

    Unless posted otherwise, 25 mph is permitted in most residential areas, while 30 mph is also allowed in some. Rural interstates allow between 65 and 70 mph and open mountain highways allow 40 mph. 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.

  • Where are the best places to park in Colorado Springs?

    There is on-street metered parking available, which is free on Sundays, as well as parking garages like the Bijou Cascade Parking Garage or the Kiowa/Nevada Parking Garage. The advantage of a garage is that they are safer due to safety cameras and are also open 24/7, making overnight parking possible.

    Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car rental companies in Colorado Springs are Budget (8.4, 89 reviews), and Hertz (7.4, 57 reviews).

Beware. About a week after our return we received a letter igniting we would be charged $450 because the exterior of the car was too dirty. $450 to wash a car???? We were caught in rain and drove on a dusty gravel road. The Jeep was a 4x4. The interior of the car was returned in spotless condition. There was no damage to the exterior, etc. It was dirty. Beware.

Pros:

Pickup at COS was easy for FastBreak members. Bypassed the line, picked up the keys in 30 seconds. The Mazda CX-9 was larger than what we had reserved, which came in very handy. The car was clean and in very good condition. Drop off at COS was super easy--a courteous attendant took the info and within a couple minutes we were inside the terminal.

Cons:

The car was a bit pricey ($80/day) and LDW coverage (had I gotten it) would have been another $35/day.

Cons:

The agent asked me if I wanted an SUV instead of the sedan I’d originally rented because I had my family with me. He said absolutely nothing about an upcharge, upgrade, or any additional cost. As rental car companies often upgrade for free, I took that to be the situation here. But when we received the bill they’d charged us significantly more for the SUV. We were also three hours late returning the car but they charged us an entire day extra. Never using Budget again.

KAYAK

Pros:

We thought we were renting from the airport location. My mistake, so we took Uber over to the correct place. We were supposed to have a mid-size SUV but when we got there, there was only a Camry and a compact SUV (Ford Escape, I think). We had 5 adults and luggage for skiing, so these were not an option. The staff there was very accommodating and did find a van that was finishing up a repair at a body shop. One of the employees took us to get food during the 45 minutes or so that we waited, so that was nice. I'm not sure the tires on the van were Colorado traction legal. We were traveling from Colorado Springs to Breckenridge. I saw a digital highway sign that Traction Law was in effect, but was not sure what that meant until someone explained later. Made it over the pass near Alma Ok but later that night had to get a push in Breck. Since the law was in effect , the van was required to be 4WD (which it wasn't) or have snow tires, which I don't think it did.

Cons:

Getting the right vehicle.

I asked for an all wheel drive vehicle and was not given one which I was not aware of until getting stuck. For the rest of my time I could not drive up to my accommodations and had to have elderly travel companions walk up a snow covered icy driveway several times due to the fear of getting stuck again. Both of them fell. Given the conditions of my travel in the mountains of CO the vehicle was inadequate.

Hertz was the only company in town that had minivans available, so I didn't have a choice on where to go to rent. In the past, I have rented a car for a full week and only paid at the most $600 for unlimited miles. This rental was 4 days, and it cost me $1200, so the value for the experience was definitely not seen. Unfortunately, I had to have this size vehicle, and no other options in town were available. That being said, the entire experience of pickup and drop-off was excellent. In and out rather quickly, and back on the road. The vehicle we received was amazingly comfortable with just enough bells and whistles to make the trip quite pleasant. One thing I love about renting is I get to preview a much newer car without buying and see if I might be interested in purchasing one a little bit later in the future. I definitely loved this vehicle and was sad to have to return it. The only other inconvenience was the location for drop-off, as there was nothing within 50 miles of my home, so I had to drive 80 miles one-way in order to return the vehicle. It would be nice if there had been other options. I definitely felt quite limited and restricted with this rental, and I don't like not having choices to get the most out of my monetary investment.
