Colorado car rental information

What are the driving conditions like in Colorado?

Travelers from all over the globe come to experience Colorado’s breath-taking scenery. However, with such great views come some potentially hazardous driving conditions such as slippery ice spots and poor visibility, particularly during the winter months. Accordingly, choose a solid and reliable four-wheeler rental car equipped with winter tires, snow chains, or snow socks if you’re visiting during winter. However, keep in mind that there may be additional charges for the winterization equipment. If you are visiting on any other season, book a car rental best suited to your needs. For instance, during the summer, a convertible or a luxury car rental should put you in a bright mood. Some of the major highways in Colorado are Interstate 70, Interstate 25, Colorado E-470 (has tolls), and Interstate 225.

What driving laws should I be aware of when driving in Colorado?

If you will be traveling on mountain roads, ensure you yield to the vehicle going uphill if you’re traveling downhill. Distracted driving is a major offense in Colorado, so only use your cellphone if using a hands-free kit. All occupants in the vehicle must wear seatbelts at all times, while kids below eight must be seated in an appropriately sized safety seat. Drivers must yield to pedestrians at all times, and the BAC for Colorado is 0.05%, and driving while intoxicated attracts hefty fines. Also, note that the speed limit is 30mph for residential areas, 25mph in business districts, 20mph on narrow mountain roads, and 65-75mph on the interstates. Additionally, remember to check with the Colorado DMV for any recent traffic laws enacted that might affect you.

What documents do I need to rent a car in Colorado?

For a car rental in Colorado, you need to present a valid government-issued driver’s license for US or Canadian citizens. The driver’s license must bear your name and photograph. Canadian drivers might also need to present a valid passport bearing their photo at some rental locations. Most rental locations don’t allow digital licenses or copies of the original document. Similarly, temporary licenses aren’t accepted at most locations, but they will be accepted if you meet their additional requirements for renting at some locations. Foreign drivers also need to provide the home country’s driver’s license, and if it’s not in English, an International Driver’s Permit will be required, particularly if the foreign language doesn’t use the Roman alphabet. Credit and debit cards are the most widely accepted forms of payment, with cash only being allowed when clearing up any balances.

Is it worthwhile to book a car rental in Colorado?

Yes. It is worthwhile to book a car rental in Colorado because you will need it to access cities such as Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Aspen, and Aurora. Moreover, Colorado is a beautiful state with lots to explore, and you will need a rental car for that. You will need a car to visit the Rocky Mountain National Park, drive through the Million Dollar Highway, reach the ski slopes at Vail, or check out the Garden of the Gods. Yes, Colorado has a public transit system in place, but a cheap car rental would be much better since you will be free to visit attractions of your choosing at your own time and won’t be fixed to a rigid transport schedule. Moreover, if the whole family is tagging along, cheap rental cars provide the comfort and convenience needed for a good family trip.
