Car hires in Denver: practical information

Where to rent a car in Denver

Colorado is a world-class destination. With Boulder and the famous ski resort Aspen just a short drive away, Denver is the perfect base for your holiday in this part of the USA. The Mile High City is brilliant, set against the Rocky Mountains with a cosmopolitan kick.

There are plenty of car hire companies at Denver International Airport (DIA) but very few have offices in the city centre. At the airport, choose your Denver rental car from Alamo Rent a Car or Budget.

Driving in Denver: parking and other tips

Street parking in Denver can be tricky but the city centre is full of parking garages, perfect for longer stays. The great thing about Denver is that many of its hotels offer free parking, especially those Denver hotels that are located outside the downtown area.

Road trips from Denver: what to do, what to see



Denver is the largest city in Colorado and is proud to sit at exactly 1 mile above sea level, hence the name “Mile High City.” With the beautiful Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, Denver is the perfect jumping off point for a ski holiday but don’t miss downtown Denver. Among the impressive skyscrapers are some very cool parks and museums.

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs is a treat to visit, and just a short jump away if you have a Denver car hire. The town is located 1,800 metres below Pikes Peak and is the ideal place for active holidaymakers to stretch their legs and tackle some amazing trails. The town is also home to some very interesting museums, a great alternative on a rainy day.

Great Sand Dune National Park

Great Sand Dunes

Great Sand Dunes National Park is located in the southern part of Colorado. The landscapes here are fascinating, with 200 metre tall sand dunes, shining in the sun! This is a fab place to bring the kids and challenge them to a race up a dune and back down again. The area is also renown for its dark skies, perfect for star gazing at night.
