Important information about Boulder car rentals

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is a pedestrian-friendly community. But you’ll want a car rental in Boulder to reach nearby scenic outdoor venues, to photograph the Flatirons, hike the Royal Arch trails, or visit the National Center for Atmospheric Research museum. If you wait to rent until you are in town, you can choose from almost 10 car rental locations in Boulder. If you drive your economy car rental or luxury car rental from Denver International Airport to Boulder, take care to avoid commuter rush hours on the I-470, as traffic there as well as in Boulder at those times can be congested. Throughout Boulder’s downtown, metered and pay station parking is available, as well as parking lots and garages, at prices ranging from free to moderate.

Boulder’s nationally recognized walkability makes it easy to explore the Fox Theatre, Pearl Street Mall, Fiske Planetarium and University of Colorado. the city has plenty of available parking, free and paid. But you’ll still want that Boulder car rental. Load the gang into a passenger van rental and park just across the street to visit the stunning Boulder Falls. Get a cheap car rental in Boulder and head to Nederland for the quirky "Frozen Dead Guy Days." Park in a nearby lot and take the shuttle to the festival. Or take a scenic drive to Estes Park, in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, to enjoy its boutiques or maybe a tour of the famous Stanley Hotel featured in the movie "The Shining." As you drive, watch for elevation signs and rest or head to lower altitudes if the high altitudes cause breathing difficulties or dizziness. Also, get gas, pack snacks, water and extra layers before you head up the mountain.

When driving your rental car in Boulder, keep in mind that pedestrians have the right of way in most situations, it is illegal to wear headphones, and seatbelts are mandatory. The blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in Colorado is .08%, and there is a zero-tolerance policy for a BAC above 0.02% for those under 21. If you are on a narrow mountain road outside the city, the car traveling downhill must yield to the car going uphill. You’ll want to have your car rental company confirm that tire tread is up to code so you can handle any weather events — and avoid a ticket. Note that your car rental in Boulder might experience diminished acceleration and power in high altitudes. And since regulations are subject to updates, it’s a good idea to check in with Boulder’s Department of Motor Vehicles before your trip.

If visiting from another state in the U.S. or from another country, your valid driver’s license is acceptable to operate your car rental in Boulder and throughout Colorado. While an international driver’s permit is not required, if your driver’s license is in a language other than English, it can be helpful for translation purposes. Present your valid driver’s license and credit card to rent a car, and note that the minimum rental age is 19 in Colorado and special surcharges may apply for drivers under age 25.
