Important information about Aspen car rentals

Aspen is synonymous with beautiful mountains and great skiing destinations. Therefore, it would almost be a crime if you visited this amazing city in Colorado without taking a tour of its breathtaking mountains. That being said, as you plan to travel to Aspen, it would be best if you factor in car rentals in Aspen as part of your plans. This will make it much easier to get around the city and get the most out of your short stay in paradise. It should be relatively easy for you to get one as there are over ten rental car locations around town where you will find cheap rental cars in Aspen so no reason to worry about that. In terms of parking availability, there are loads of parking spaces around town and you are even allowed 15 minutes every day of free parking on the streets for you to run quick errands such as picking something up from the shop.

Is it worthwhile renting a car while visiting Aspen?

The Aspen town administration has made it very easy for people to walk from one place to another within the city center as there are even heated sidewalks and snow plowing is done on a regular basis. However, a car rental could come in handy when traveling to the mountainside where all the fun is. You will also get to enjoy some amazing drives across some of the most scenic highways in the mainland US such as Highway 82 and the I-70. Also, if you fancy visiting some neighboring cities such as Glenwood Springs to see the Hanging Lake and Sunlight Mountain Resort it is just about an hour’s drive from Aspen via the CO-82 W. This is where you will need car rentals in Aspen. It is worth pointing out that driving to the mountainside can be a little tricky during the winter so you should be very careful while on the roads.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Aspen?

For you to safely drive your rental cars in Aspen, you will need to familiarize yourself with some of the unique driving laws imposed by the state of Colorado. One law in particular that applies to Aspen because of its mountainside roads is the one that says whenever you encounter another car driving in the opposite direction on a narrow, steep mountain roadway, the car going uphill has the right of way so the one going downwards must yield. Also, left turns on red lights are illegal unless you're turning from a one-way road to another one-way road. If you need any clarification on driving laws before booking your Aspen rental car you can always check with the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles for the latest rule changes.

What kind of driver’s license do you need to rent a car in Aspen?

For you to be able to get car rentals in Aspen, be it a passenger van rental or even an electric car rental, all you need to show is your driver’s license whose expiry date shouldn’t be before the end of the rental agreement period. However, for non-US or Canadian residents the rules are different. The agency will need to see your home driver’s license as well as your passport and visa depending on the country you’re coming from. International driver permits aren't necessary unless for special circumstances.
