I loved the quick check in, excellent super quick drop off in fact. Proximity to airport excellent. Car was OK - acceptable for sure. It was not 100% clean - felt like it had dirty rag marks on the dash, etc. Otherwise fine.

The staff went above what you could expect and offered either an upgrade for no charge or a smaller SUV with a refund. The entire transaction from start to finish was easy and they were so courteous.

Our last minute car rental from the airport in Colorado Springs was so easy! The first time ever! The staff was helpful and they answered the phone too! Considering we were in a snowstorm, I felt it worked out great! Kudos to the staff in Colorado Spring Airport!

I called about changing my dropoff location from Colorado Springs to Denver International, and inquired about pricing. I was told and I quote "changing your dropoff location is not a problem. They can change it in the computer when you pick the car up." After an hour drive, I go to pick up the car and the lady at the desk tells me there will be a two thousand dollar charge to change the drop off location. I explain to her what Budget customer service told me and that there must be a mistake on her end, to which she replied "It's not a problem, it's two thousand dollars." Then I called the customer service number again and the guy on the phone told me the same thing... the EXACT same wording...It's not a problem. Then he told me he didn't have a supervisor that I could talk to. Unbelievably rude and unprofessional staff in person and on the phone. Do yourself a favor and walk before you use Budget.

I picked up the vehicle for a long trip and brought it home only to find out that there was no windshield wiper fluid, steering fluid was very low, tire pressure was not correct or balanced, and the oil needed to be topped off. The location (Colorado Springs Airport) for the pick is not convenient for those with disabilities. It is a very long walk from the terminal out to the rental cars. The vehicle was clean and did not smell of smoke, food, or chemicals.

It was the best car rental experience I have ever had. The process was easy, the service was excellent, and the price very reasonable. I will definitely recommend this location.
8.0 ExcellentNov 1 2021
Excellent rates, and a great car. A few minor issues, no big deal—the car was provided to me with a “maintenance required - see dealer” light already on, and a nail in a tire that I had to replace at the cost of half a day during my trip.

Car smelled like it might have been smoked in… had some outside repairs obviously. Not the best shape but sufficient.

Definitely was a friendly staff member who helped with car. What I did not like and this is on the company was that my 23 year old son was not allowed (due to computer flagging him as underage) to be a registered driver. That is ridiculous. He has a clean license, and to be then told the minimum age to drive the rental is 25. Unfortunately if this is the rule I will not be able to rent from Hertz/Dollar again.
10.0 ExcellentJan 31 2022
Rented a car two separate times for this trip. This location was the smoothest car rental experience I've ever had. I rented from them the second time because of how good the experience was the first time. Consistently good service. Courteous staff, and quick checkout/return.

I prepaid everything well in advance, so as not to have surprises. Well too bad, the experience was not the best, they withdrew $ 200 from my credit card that was not planned, then they charged me more money for unexpected fees. They should be chlorine and say the total bill and other conditions that they never mentioned, really Dollar's offer was only a few dollars cheaper and it turned out to be hundreds of dollars more expensive than the others it was a total fraud, I felt robbed, no They tell the truth when renting, everything is a lie with every intention of stealing your money

Couldnt rent a carCouldn't rent a car because I didn't have a credit card,only had a debit card and was charged 18.00 for insurance. I just wanted to get home to my family but was told I couldn't rent a car without a major credit card after I was already in line to pick up the car after booking online. Worst customer service ever!!

There was no big deal about using a debit card instead of a credit card; there was no $200 charge above the rental to use said card. The service was friendly and the return was unbelievably quick. (The employee was at the car before we even opened the car door.)

After being switched to 4 different cars, we finally got one albeit 3 hours later than promised. Car was dirty inside and out; particularly the glass and windshield. The dirty glass inside and out made it unsafe to drive until I cleaned it. The car had 40,000 miles on it, and the worn out windshield wipers made the situation worse. Car was reliable. The Enterprise website and office phone message state how much care they put into cleanliness ... they really dont.

The drop off was great and Noah was very helpful,but the original enterprise dealer called two hours before pickup to let us know they had no car for us . This cause great concern considering we needed the car for a memorial service for a decrease relative.If a company has a commitment to provide a service or product they should be held to fulfill that contact and not call two hours prior to pick up staying they don't have become we had asked for. We were extremely dissappointed but mad. They managed to come up with car at a different location but not the one we asked for and asked for two weeks prior to pick up.

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.Getting the right vehicle.

The vehicle I needed was not available. I needed a 15-passenger van. That’s what I reserved but the best they could give me was a 12-passenger van. My price was only slightly reduced and my plans were severely inconvenienced. I was offered a second car, but I didn’t have a second driver.

They gave us a Hyundai Ikona which could not accelerate. Brake pads seemed to be worse for wear. We are lucky we survived as the vehicle had a lot of issues driving on the freeway and we had to be extra careful. We paid 600 for 3 days for a crappy car.

The clerk (Tiffany?) was amazing and the vehicle was exceptionally clean. The price was OUTRAGEOUS. I could understand if I were taking the automobile to another state, but OMGoodness, I was blown away by the cost. Then I found a slip of paper taped to the dashboard stating that *I* had to clean the car before I returned it? Including an exterior carwash? I've NEVER heard of any such thing. What a major inconvenience, especially since I already have to get fuel at the gas station closest to the drop-off, so I'm not charged three times the local market value for gasoline. I'm not likely to rent a vehicle from this company again. And if these things such as cleaning it myself and the terrible prices are fairly consistent across other agencies, I shouldn't think that I will be renting an automobile from anyone in the future.

I have been traveling to Colorado since 2019 due to my Dad’s terminal illness and used this location every trip. The staff has been very friendly and not only remember me but remember the reason I was traveling. They would always ask about Dad. Now that Dad has passed I am regularly traveling back to check on Mom. The staff care, they are not just doing a job. Thank you! See you in 2 months.

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.

3.9 MediocreSep 16 2021
Upon arriving to pick up my rental, I was given a vehicle with 75K miles and a bald right front tire. The second selection they wanted to give me was an upscale SUV that got 19 mpg and had three bald tires unsafe for any travel. Finally, the 3rd choice was a recent return minivan that I cleaned out the trash inside and took to a car wash to clean the bugs off the windows. While the young man that helped me was very polite and understood my issues, this should not be the case with a name like Hertz. All was good in the end and I did receive the minivan I needed.

Car was dirty. Looks like it wasn’t cleaned from last rental. Bugs still on grill and lights, crumbs on seats, windows were smeared and had a film on them and car stunk like Chinese food. Also car had a bad shake when we got up to freeway speeds. Overall one of the worst rentals I’ve had.

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 rental 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 rental agencies like Alamo, Budget, and Enterprise. Conveniently pick up a rental 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 rental 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.
