KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Arvada

  • The most time- and cost-efficient solution is to use car rentals in Arvada if you want to go outside of the city center on a regular basis. The public transportation system, such as the RTD's bus, has spotty coverage, and numerous lines do not run on holidays, weekends, or throughout the weekend. Since certain bus lines only run during peak commuter hours, hiring a vehicle may be the best option for getting from point A to point B. By renting a car in Arvada, you can get about the city and the surrounding area much more quickly and in more comfort than you could by walking or using public transit.
  • Most local roads in Arvada are toll-free. However, most major interstates and highways in Colorado will attract tolls. For instance, if your major destinations force you to drive your rented car from the cheap car rentals in Arvada on E-470, Pikes Peak Highway, or Northwest Parkway, you should ensure your pocket has enough cash to service the toll charges. Alternatively, you can avoid extra charges by prioritizing locally based toll-free connections.
  • You will not have any trouble using car rentals in Arvada because you can access them at Denver International Airport since this airport has a car rental facility that is staffed by companies like Avis and Budget in addition to Hertz. Because of this, renting a vehicle at this airport is a practical alternative to consider. You must be at least 18 years old to hire a vehicle from these agencies. In addition to meeting the basic qualifications for the job, applicants must also possess a valid driver's license and a credit card in good standing at the time of application. In addition to a valid driver's license from your own country, non-Americans and non-Brits must also possess an International Driver's Permit.
  • Suppose you plan to rent a car from any of the cheap car rentals in Arvada. If so, you should factor in the minimum and maximum age restrictions for renting a car in Arvada. For instance, 16 is the minimum driver's license age. However, you must be at least 21 to access Arvada's rental services. Even after attaining 21, only a few cheap car rentals in Arvada, including Avis, Thrifty, and Enterprise, will let you rent a car. You will need to, however, sign their young driver's policy. This policy states that individuals between the ages of 21 and 24 may be permitted to rent specific makes and models of cars as long as they agree to pay the daily young driver's premiums. Only individuals at least 25 years old can rent cars of their choice from any Arvada car rental.
  • It is quite easy to navigate about town using car rentals in Arvada since the roads are kept in good condition and the residents of the city are generally polite drivers. Since the majority of the roads in this city pass through highly crowded areas, it is imperative that drivers use defensive driving strategies. It's recommended that drivers in Arvada provide at least three seconds of space between their car and the one in front of them, make their intentions known clearly and quickly, and remain in their lane as much as possible. By taking these measures, you may lessen the likelihood that you will experience any unwarranted anxiety.
  • You should know that most Arvada car rentals will not accept cash payments, and only a few will allow you to pay by debit card. Therefore, for convenience, ensure that your credit card has enough credit limit to act as your car rental security for your car rental charges. You will also need a valid driver's license besides a credit card. Your driver's license should not carry significant endorsements for at least 12 months. If you are a non- U.S. citizen, you should remember to obtain a valid passport.
  • While Arvada car rentals make getting about the region a breeze, motorists should be aware of a few potential hazards, the most notable of which is the city's crowded and crowded roadways. Less cars can go on the roadways at once because of their restricted width. This is a major cause of the heavy traffic that occurs on these roads between 7 am and 9 am. and again between 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm. Do your best to avoid being on the roads during the times specified if you do not want to be stuck in traffic.

Pros:

NOTHING

Cons:

I prepaid for my Hertz rental and got a call the morning of the reservation saying that they did not have a car for me. The Hertz employee was EXTREMELY rude on the phone. When I called Hertz, they told me I had to call a different number for the refund. I called that number and it connected me back to the exact same customer service menu. They ended up switching my reservation to a different location and i got ANOTHER call 15 minutes before I was supposed to pick up my car saying that there was no car for me! Long story short - I am still trying to get my money refunded and I never got a car from them. Worst car rental experience EVER

Pros:

The car smelled nice. Unfortunately there was nothing else noteworthy about this transaction.

Cons:

It took over an hour to pick up my rental ahead of a 14 hour drive. I was also misquoted the price on-line. It said 130 when I booked it and ended up being $160+, that's after they tried to charge me for an extra day after I was given an incorrect drop off time. In the future I will not be using hertz or will be going through another booking source.

Cons:

The woman who serviced us upon arrival was very rude. Especially, with the drop off. We were supposed to do a key drop off box. The place suspended that activity and never let us know. There was nowhere to leave the car and we didn't know what to do. She must have seen us from a distance since the office was closed and came over to ask about us. Her response was well today is your lucky day. not, I'm sorry for the inconvenience we should have contacted you telling you our policy has changed nothing.

Cons:

There were no cars available to fulfill our reservation. The Enterprise corporate staff assured us there were cars available when we phoned the night before but then on the morning of the rental, the local office called to tell us they had none and could not fulfill the reservation. We ended up renting directly from a local Avis but it caused us a lot of headache And stress at the start of our vacation. Was very disappointing as no one from Enterprise seemed able to resolve the situation.

The car was late to drop off and was not cleaned out but we were going on a family trip so we needed to leave. There was a nail in the drivers side tire and we used fix a flat and after hours drop off so I could not tell them. Not sure if the nail was in the tire when we picked it up but we were far from any towns and limited cell service so we did what we could do.

Sure did appreciate the staff Avis Lakewood has. They were all so helpful. Fast and friendly. The gentleman that came to get mileage from the car went above and beyond. He took note I hurt my leg and could not walk well. When we got inside he brought out a stool so I could sit & made sure I was comfortable. 👍 Staff over all at that location great. Good job crew. 👏
