KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Wheat Ridge

  • There are several advantages to renting cheap car rentals in Wheat Ridge. One of the main benefits is the flexibility it provides. Unlike public transportation, which operates on a set schedule and route, having a rental car allows you to explore the city and surrounding areas on your own time. In addition, there are several places that are more easily accessible by Wheat Ridge car rentals. For example, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is a must-see destination for nature lovers, and the Flatirons is a popular destination for hikers and rock climbers.
  • Denver Airport (DEN) is located approximately 25 miles from Wheat Ridge. The rental car offices at DEN are located on the 5th floor of the Jeppesen Terminal. Passengers can access the rental car counters by taking the train from inside the terminal or by walking. Colorado Springs Airport (COS) is located approximately 80 miles from Wheat Ridge. The rental car offices at COS are located on the Terminal's lower level. Passengers can access the rental car counters by walking.
  • When it comes to driving cheap car rentals in Wheat Ridge, there are a few key things to keep in mind. While there aren't a particularly high number of bicycles compared to some cities, it's still important to be aware of and respectful towards cyclists sharing the road. Give them enough space when passing and be prepared for them to be present in bike lanes or on roads. You should also yield to pedestrians as required by law and be cautious of potential pedestrians stepping out unexpectedly.
  • Rush hours on weekdays in Wheat Ridge can cause congestion and slow traffic on some roads, especially during the morning and evening commute between 7:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The busiest roads in the city include I-70, I-76, and West Colfax Avenue. It's best to plan ahead and leave early or consider alternate routes to avoid traffic during these times. When there are heavy rains in the area, it’s common for the roads to become slippery and traffic to slow down. Musky and muddy zones can also make driving cheap car rentals in Wheat Ridge quite challenging, particularly during spring when the snow starts melting and it becomes muddy.

Pros:

Fantastic staff and great service. Kind, responsive, professional, just a pleasure to work with.

Cons:

Location does not allow after-hours key drop due to roving car-theft gangs. Maybe a better/stronger drop box could work?

3.6 Poor

KAYAK

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.

Pros:

The staff were very polite, professional and quick.

The only thing I wish was that there were floor mats in the car. Colorado is very dusty and I was concerned about tracking dirt on the carpet.

Pros:

The staff was nice, they were helpful

Cons:

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. 👏

We got to budget at DIA around 11:30pm on 2/9/24. There was a huge line. It was not moving. I asked people who had been in line for 90mins and they still had half way to go. Terrible! So slow. Miserable. We called uber and went to our hotel. Budget at DIA: horrible experience.

Pros:

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

KAYAK

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.
