And once you get to the interstate or expressway, you can drive at up to 60 mph. However, do pay attention to the road conditions and adjust your speed prudently. As a general rule, avoid high speeds when the roads are slippery due to rain or ice.

  • Where are the best places to park in Gunnison?

    Finding parking in Gunnison city center can be a challenge thanks to the limited number of available parking lots. That said, you can try your luck in Downtown Gunnison where you are likely to find several metered parking. For instance, 900 N St Parking, Palisades Senior RV Park, Jorgensen Park and West Tomichi River Park offer some of the cheapest parking lots in the city.

Cons:

Kayak has earned my business for many years by making sure the quoted price wa accurate and incl all costs. I was quoted $367 for my car, received a Priceline confirmation at that price, but my rental agreement upon picking up the car was $441. After spending hours calling and getting the runaround on auto attendants and live support people who always blamed me or one of the other two parties (kayak, Priceline, Budget) I have no choice but to dispute the charges and never use Kayak or any other pricing engine. I’ll pay more to go direct.

Cons:

The car we were given was an "upgrade" but it was a larger car that was very underpowered for climbing mountain passes which decreased the mpg. Also, the inside windows were so dirty with foot prints and splatters, it was difficult to see. we had to make a stop to clean it so we could continue our trip.

Enterprise had no car for me because they had overbooked. I had to scramble at the last minute to find another car that cost more. The local agency said I would have to call the 800 number to get compensation for the additional cost and the supervisor on the 800 line said they could do nothing because that had to be handled by the local agency. Everybody was very sorry. A sorry operation indeed.
