Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Booked the car through Kayak, the Enterprise location didn’t actually have a car available (the website shouldn’t allow me to book through them). The enterprise did try to call immediately after I booked and left a voicemail telling me they didn’t actually have vehicles for the next morning, but I didn’t receive the voicemail. I spent $40 on an Uber to their location, only to be told by their agent they they didn’t have cars, and that they did call to tell me that the night prior. When asked why they didn’t try calling again in the morning, to perhaps save me a trip, they basically had no response. The customer service at the location was non-existent, there was no attempt to rectify or apologize for the inconvenience, the woman “helping” me never made eye contact with me, and repeatedly just kept saying, “we did call and leave you a message.” It was clear they had no interest or concept of customer service, so I had them cancel the reservation, I then booked direct through National Car Rental at the airport for the next day and had a great experience. I won’t book through Kayak again, had this been a business trip it could have caused serious issues. When I reserve a vehicle I need to be able to trust that it’s an actual reservation.

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was rude and extremely unhelpful. We were promised a premium truck which was then revoked. Upon arrival the truck was available but only in 2 wheel drive. Being we were in Colorado I wanted a 4 wheel drive car. Upon arrival the associate said they had a 4 wheel minivan available so I opted for that. It turns out the van was only 2 wheel drive and the associate lied to us. It snowed that night and we barely made it to our rental condo. We also missed a day of skiing because of the weather and our inability to drive. We called enterprise to see if they could provide a 4 wheel car. We never received a call back.

Cons:

Everything. After this experience I will never use kayak or enterprise again.

Cons:

The person at the rental agency very tactlessly said they didn’t have any cars for the price I reserved the car for. He said they only have SUVs and that it would cost me $50 more. I was in a bind so I took it, but I felt swindled.

the car had a change oil warning sign on for the whole trip. Tires were unevenly inflated; we had to deal with it on the road. Customer service was good, but Budget should take better care of its cars.

Cons:

Shuttle to and from airport was EXTREMELY slow. Going back to the airport the bus went through the “customer” line which took 25 minutes. There was a bunch of people including myself that almost missed our flights. The bus needs to get to the airport quicker as well as pick up from the airport quicker. When we first arrived we saw the Hertz and other rental car companies shuttles pass THREE times before ours even showed up. Our car was also very dirty upon pickup, not great to see.

I sat and waited for a car they couldn’t find for over an hour before they finally gave me a different model, it was damaged and then had to be switched to another car. As I was driving out I saw that they finally brought up the car I was supposed to have originally but I was done dealing with that by then.

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was very kind.

Cons:

It was the first time I had tried to pick up a car early, and this may be an industrywide policy, but instead of charging an hourly amount for the extra hour and a half, they were going to calculate the new rate as if I were just renting today, which would have been $200 more. I suppose in the interest of time, the car was given to us dirty. On the fence about that.

Hertz online hours are wrong, so we went to pick up our reserved car and they were closed. We went back the next morning (30 minutes early because their morning hours are wrong too) and they didn't have a car for us. I'm not sure why they let us reserve a car they didn't have but they basically told us tough luck and didn't try to accommodate us at all. Awful experience and horrible service all around.

Top tips for renting a car in Thornton

  • You can considerably enhance your experience using Thornton car rentals when visiting the city, which allow you to conveniently sightsee and accomplish your business. If you enjoy water activities, you can go about 2.3 miles to Water World for some fun waves and entertainment. Car rentals in Thornton enable you to access more attractions within and outside the town, like the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge. This refuge in nearby Golden is approximately 14.5 miles from central Thornton and permits you to relax and appreciate nature and wildlife, making it ideal when journeying with friends.
  • The main airport servicing Thornton is Denver International Airport, situated around 27.5 miles from the town center. You can pick up your rented vehicle within the airport grounds at the rental car center. This center houses Alamo, Fox, Enterprise, Sixt, National, Dollar, Hertz, Budget, and Thrifty. You can ride the airport shuttle at Level 5 on Island 4 at the Jeppesen Terminal to the center. If you arrive on the west side of the airport, the shuttle comes to doors 504-512. On the east side of the terminal, find the shuttle outside doors 505-513.
  • The city houses major routes, including Colorado Boulevard and I-25, which make it easy for you to travel from one place to another. However, you can choose to add navigation equipment to your vehicle to prevent unexpected delays from getting lost. As many people in Thornton prefer to walk or cycle, you’ll want to keep an eye out while driving.

For this reason, traffic also gets heavier during the cold season, so utilize a flexible schedule whenever possible.
