The staff at both Aspen and Bozeman,, it was a one way rental, were friendly and could not help me enought. Great service.

One way rental from Aspen CO to Bozeman MT. Two day trip. Went awesome. Easy pickup and drop off. And much appreciated being able to upgrade to an all-wheel drive vehicle (nice Bronco Sport) verses 2-wheel drive since I was driving a mountains roads route in January.

Staff was friendly and did their job.Where to pickup rental would have been easier had I known to go to arrivals at the airport.

Perhaps I should have read more carefully. Given the snow conditions, I rented an SUV and must have understood incorrectly as I expected all-wheel or four-wheel drive. I was offered a $150 upsell. Guy walking up next to me got a small all wheel drive which was not offered. Car was outside covered in snow and ice impossible to inspect thoroughlyread description carefully

Car was well used. Seat was very uncomfortable

Everything was wonderful. Irving was the name of the rep that assisted us. The car model that we booked online was unavailable and for a small upgrade fee - we rented a luxury SUV. Very happy with this rental experience.

8.0 ExcellentMar 7 2021
Staff very good.Pushing insurance and the usual overinflated gas prices could be a good differentiator for the company going forward against the competition
10.0 ExcellentFeb 28 2021
Staff (Irving) was exceptionally helpful at pick-up - he ran out to warm the car up and bring it right to us! Also helpful with switching to a larger vehicle. Pickup was inside terminal at Aspen airport which was very convenient.Price seemed high but not sure compared to other vehicles of similar size.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2021
The staff was extremely friendly- both picking up and dropping off couldn’t have been easier. My car was safe, comfortable and clean!From Denver to Aspen I paid around $200 for a luxury car. From Aspen to Denver, however, I paid $1000 for a less expensive car. While the overall experience was flawless, the price for my second trip was way too high.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2021
NothingI cancelled the reservation months before the trip and Sixt never honored. Was charged and trying to fight with them is exhausting

Hertz different in locationsCar was there, Return was easyOrdered a GPS on car but when I picked up the car there was none. Could not connect my bluetooth to car and all would of been, no doubt ok, had I had a person to help me from Hertz except there was no agent at the counter when the website said there should of been. Aspen, CO has unusual hours to start with.

Amazing serviceI loved how fast and simple the service was. No one tried to push any additional services on me, and everyone was so kind. Customer service was great! Had help with my bags. I have never had such a great experience with a rental car company. Will definitely look to Hertz first. Also extremely pleased with the deal I got. Hertz by far has the best service.No complaints.

Rude front desk woman! She acted as if she really did not want to be working on new year's day. I left my son's water bottle in the car rental and asked if she could flag it down for me. She declined and asked me to fill out a lost and found report. I would have appreciated if she could have just called the staff to see if they found my 2 year old's water bottle.

delays to return - overchargesquick car pickup - but apparently gave me the wrong carwhen returning the car, the agent found out that when the original agent made a mistake. This caused a delay in the return, putting me dangerously close to losing my flight. Also they overcharged me for child carseats twice. Car wasnt very clean.

5.2 OkayAug 26 2019
The car was what we expected, excellent navigation system and good gas mileage.The Alamo Rep called me about a hour before scheduled time, asking me when to be picking it up. I arrived 10 min. prior, And no rep was present, proceeded to call assistance number and still took about half an hour to get the car once rep showed up. Car smelled awful, hadn’t been cleaned proir.
2.4 MediocreAug 25 2019
Easy drop off and pick up.The car upon pick up was dirty. Plus, it is underpowered and underserving for the area. The attendant tried to tell us all cars have trouble in CO, but we have been to CO many times and this was our first issue. Plus, we rode in friends cars without issue. The attendant nearly hit us when we arrived

I only did a drop off in Aspen, so I can't give you valid information about too much besides the drop off experience. It was fine, the attendant was friendly and fast.

Top tips for renting a car in Aspen

  • Whether you intend on staying within the city limits or exploring the surrounding region, car rentals in Aspen are a convenient way to get around. Many nearby attractions are more accessible by car, such as Maroon Bells, a famous mountain peak that is about a 25min drive away. Hiking enthusiasts may also want to go to the North Hunter Creek Trail, which is around a 20min drive from the city center.
  • If you plan on arriving by plane, you can always choose to pick up your Aspen car rental from Aspen/Pitkin County Airport. The rental car desks are conveniently placed next to the baggage claim in the airport’s Arrivals terminal, meaning that you don’t have to grab a shuttle or take a taxi to get here. There are many different companies for you to choose from, with options including Alamo, Budget, and National.
  • Driving in Aspen can be confusing as many of the city’s roads are long and winding, particularly in the more mountainous regions of town. To make navigation easier, you can add a GPS system to car rentals in Aspen. Downtown Aspen is known for having a large number of pedestrians, so you will also want to pay close attention when you are driving in this area, particularly along major roads, such as Main Street.
  • There is one major highway that leads into Aspen, which is Highway 82. This road is known for having high traffic levels, so try to avoid driving on it during rush hour, which is generally between 9am and 10am and 5pm and 6pm. It snows often during winter months, and even if it hasn’t snowed recently, the streets may still be slick. Avoid sudden stops and try to drive slower than normal in order to prevent any skidding. You will also want to make sure that your vehicle has the proper equipment for driving in the winter, such as chains for the tires.
