Top tips for renting a car in Colorado

  • To hire a vehicle in Colorado, drivers are required to provide a valid driving licence bearing their name and a photograph. Some car hire companies might require a current passport that bears the hirer’s photograph. Foreign drivers must present a current driving licence from their home country. It should be written in English, else, they must obtain an International Driver's Permit. It’s important to note that the more widely accepted forms of payment are debit and credit cards, with cash generally only being accepted when settling any balances.
  • All merging vehicles must give way to the flow of traffic, so refrain from cutting into the road if doing so will slow down traffic. Drivers in Colorado often find themselves ascending steep mountain roads in their explorations. In any case, a vehicle travelling downhill on a steep mountain pass must yield to a vehicle travelling uphill. It is illegal to drive while distracted in Colorado; therefore, you should only use your phone if it’s a hands-free device. Drivers must yield to pedestrians at all times. Additionally, be sure to observe set speed limits in different areas: residential areas are set at 30 mph (48 km/h), business districts at 25 mph (40 km/h), narrow mountain routes at 20 mph (32 km/h) and interstates at 65-75 mph (104-120 km/h).
  • In Colorado, unless otherwise stated by a sign at the intersection, motorists are only allowed to turn left on a red light onto a one-way street after coming to a complete stop. Legally, you are required to adhere to the “three-second rule”, which states that you should allow a distance equivalent to three seconds between your automobile and the vehicle in front. All passengers must be buckled up at all times, and children under eight must be comfortably restrained in an authorised car seat, suitable for their weight and height.
