I didn't like anything. I experienced total confusion and chaos while trying to pick up a car I reserved several weeks earlier. I was ripped off for liability coverages and waivers I didn't ask for, and was not offered. DO NOT RENT FROM ENTERPRISE AT DENVER INTERNATIONAL. I could write a short story about how bad my experience was. I've been trying to get help from Enterprise for days to resolve the bad experience, and keep getting the run around. "somebody will call", but nobody has. Rent a car from a different company.
2.0 Mediocre1 Nov 2021
Got a call the day before my arrival in Denver (from California), telling me that my location for pick up was now closed on Sundays and I would need to call another enterprise location (not at the airport) and arrange my own NEW rental…. This was unacceptable and I won’t be using either Kayak or Enterprise again for car rental.
7.9 Good27 Aug 2021
This was my first rental with enterprise and we had the car for two months! Pick-up close to 2 hours but this was partially because the overall situation is bad! No matter where you go, businesses are short staffed! They were very friendly and helpful! Unfortunately the car was not very clean! It was already dark at pickup so we didn’t see it right away. Besides that, we were able to solve most issues and we received a discount! I would go back and give them a second chance, they deserve it! We drove 7900 miles and the car had no issues! Hope the industry goes back to pre-COVID pricing and car availability!

Matthew at the Denver airport Enterprise is AMAZING! He went above and beyond to make sure I had the right car for my long road trip. Please pass this along to his manager!

All went well. We had to wait about 30 minutes for our vehicle as the crew in the back couldn’t turn around vehicles quick enough with a short staff. Other than that, good experience.
5.9 Okay1 Aug 2021
Unfortunately the price difference between picking up at the airport and offsite is huge, and there is no way to easily tell the the office closet to the airport, with appropriate hours of operation, so I had to take a $50 lyft ride to get to the rental office (offsite from the airport-- which I am told, still saved me money on the overall rental).
3.9 Mediocre28 Jul 2021
Car needs to be retired. Speed control hardly ever worked and the passenger seat was the most uncomfortable car seat I've sat in for decades. Hourly stops to change drivers to the better driver's seat were mandatory. Sad, sad car.

The first person who assisted me was very nice and help me getting a better car for the snow so I upgraded to a 4x4 SUV my renthaving the car clean no with mud and dust and papers and stuff inside plus with wash fluid because at the middle of my trip from Denver to Vail I got the low wash fluid sign the first time I used it so obviously before getting to Vail I ran out of wash fluid in the middle of a snow storm which made the beginning of my trip very dangerous because of a lack of supervision from your company which delivered a car which has recently dropped at your facilities, very bad honestly.

The lady who assisted us in dropping off the car was very pleasant and I appreciated that, as it was very cold and early. The shuttle to the airport was prompt and helpful.I had reserved a car for around $200 online. When I arrived (after standing in a line for over 30 minutes) I was told that I had to have an AWD vehicle by state law. I "was lucky" and they had 1 AWD vehicle left in stock. It took my total to $755. If that is the case, why even have the other vehicles available to rent in the first place? I saw plenty of people driving non-AWD rental cars and they presumably didn't get fined. I was also urged to purchase a toll pass for $9.99/day because "I would definitely go through multiple tolls". I didn't go through one toll and had to pay $69.93 for nothing. It seems like a big scam and rip off. I hope that NO ONE is taken "advantage" of like I was again.

Farah, who welcomed me at the counter, was very personable and professional.The car was dirty inside and out. probably due to the previous day's snowstorm. In addition, the gas tank was not full although hard to tell from the gauge. It was only obvious when refilling.

Not much other than the car worked fine and was availableNot being snaked into a price that wasn’t real. Upon arrival I find out I “need” a 4 wheel drive. There goes an additional 100 bucks to my charge. The staff who helped me was cold and unwelcoming.

Car was dirty on the outside. I had to stop and clean the windows at the nearest gas station after pickup. Lot where the car is picked up has no lighting so you have to check for damage with your phone light at night. Vehicle was a rattle trap with 78k miles on it. Price was only a little cheaper than a larger brand rental company Buyer beware with this company.

My confirmation said I was supposed to have an suv that was Jeep Compass or vehicle like it… which means it should be 4 wheel drive. They gave me a suv that was only front wheel drive and they said they had no traction vehicles even though there is traction laws in Colorado! I even complained and let them know I live in Breckenridge but they still gave me front wheel drive. The cars alinement shook on the highway and the tires were bad. It was stressful driving it in the snow. I was disappointed . Drop off was nice experience though.

I was very comfortable. And while running easy to drop off unless you wanted to change your card and pay with a different card. Did not tell us how to recharge the battery so we needed to use gas. Told us if we bought gas through them we could bring it back on empty and it would be much cheaper than filling up at a gas station which was not the case they charged us $66 for a tank of gas car had dirty wipes in it when we got it and we needed to add an extra day even though on the app it said modify you could not through either app had to call to add an extra day.

2.0 Mediocre15 Nov 2021
There was an issue with my initial rental pick-up causing us to return hours later when they were fully open. I had to return my original rental (it was much larger than what I reserved and needed a smaller vehicle) and this caused my entire reservation to be closed out. I later needed roadside assistance but was declined this 'complimentary' service by both Customer Service and the local Colorado Springs Avis Manager due to my "reservation being closed out and they could not locate my reservation in their system." Thankfully, for us, we had the finances to pay for our own tow truck and new tire or else we would have been completely stranded....IN THEIR CAR?! A whole day of the vacation and $170 down the drain due to their mishap and very poor customer service. I do not suggest renting from Avis at any cost.

I will not rent from here again. Waited over an hour for our rental due to multiple flight delays. Tires bald on the first car they gave us. Looked like it had already been in a pretty significant crash. Second car, upgraded to SUV, but car was assigned to someone else upon retrieval. Third car, upgraded to Mustang. Tires a little better, looked like it hadn’t been thoroughly cleaned. We thankfully made it through the mountains alive in a mustang. But again, won’t recommend and won’t rent from here again.

Staff was good. The pickup process, and car were not good. The pickup took a really long time. I saw other rental shuttles come 3-4 times before the Budget Shuttle arrived; about an hour of wait time. There was a really long line of people waiting so the first shuttle filled up quickly and I had to wait for the next one. I tried calling customer service but the main line told me I had to speak to someone at the pickup Budget Office; there is literally no way to get a hold of someone at the pickup office. When I got the car it had bald tires and was also very dirty; didn’t notice this until the next day. Tried calling customer service again and they told me I had to go back to the pickup office; I was already far away at this point. I went and was able to get another vehicle but not with any compensation for the inconvenience.

Don't choose the "mystery" car option. We chose that expecting to not have a choice between a smart car or a large SUV, but when we got there they said our only option was a 12 passenger van! To switch to any reasonable car option, the price was double the original reservation. Don't reserve with Budget unless you want a bait and switch at the counter.

I waited for 45 minutes as there were not cars available, despite a confirmed reservation. Then, once I got the car, it only had 3/4 of a tank of gas - and of course I filled it up at return, so not only did I lose nearly an hour on my 1-day rental (when I only had a few hours of daylight to be a tourist), but the extra gas cost added 20% to my rental cost.

When asked what could be done, the manager said “honestly nothing, it’s not like I have money in the back that I can give you.” He was extremely rude and the lack of customer service skills made the experience that much worse. This reservation was paid for weeks in advanced and left 7 people without a vehicle for the trip. Will never book this location or with Hertz again.

After taking a train then bus from the airport to the location, we found it had been permanently closed and locked up. We called hertz customer service and when I asked why we hadn’t been notified of it closing they said it was because we had booked on Kayak. She said if we had booked directly with hertz they would have contacted us. When she put us on hold to see if there were other cars in the area, we wound up getting disconnected. We tried five other rental car companies in the area before finding a car and wound up paying $500 instead of the $140 we had planned to pay. Although I have always had good success booking rooms through Kayak, I would not recommend ever renting a car through them. I will not be renting with hertz in the future.

The wait for a car was about 80 minutes. I understand there is a shortage of cars but there were several open computers thrust could have been used to move customers through the line more quickly. Also, I had to purchase a battery from my own money for my key fob as the one for my vehicle didn’t work. The car was not very clean. Overall the rental was good, but not great due to the long wait and having to spend my money on a piece of equipment that should have been taken care of prior to my arrival.

Initially when we booked the truck it listed as $270 for the week. Other rental companies had their trucks listed for $600 for the week so we went with the obvious cheaper choice. When arriving to Dollar to pick up our truck we waited un line for over 2 hours, even though we had a reservation. After dropping off our truck at the end of the week I was charged an additional $280 in fees. The truck listed on the rental website for $270 so I was very shocked to be charged extra. Since the cost of the rental was similar to other companies I should have gone with one with a better reputation and customer service.

Very poor customer service . Employees standing around while the line was out the door . My car was supposed to be pick up at 12 pm . I stood in line for almost 4 hours for my rental . Plus the time I stood outside waiting for a car to become available. Will not do business again .

We waited 2+ hours to pick our car up even though we had a reservation. Other than that, they were great.

The line to get to the counter was more than 45 minutes long, then when we finally had the car there was another 30 minute line of cars to get out of the lot. It was so slow, there were very people working at the counter and very frustrating. They also didn’t explain why I had to pay extra fees when I was under the impression I had paid everything already. It ended up being more expensive than I was told

We had to change cars due to a dashboard warning light. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive making the exchange process very, very easy and convenient.

We waited 45 minutes on the curb at the airport for the bus to pick us up. It was 10:00 pm and we were tired. But when we finally arrived at the Dollar location, things got worse. We understood why the bus hadn't picked us up because the line to rent cars was literally out the door and there would have been no room for more people to wait. As I waited in line, my sister asked the people who were finally getting served how long they had been in line. Three hours!! At this point, we left, took the Dollar shuttle back to the airport and got the hotel shuttle to our hotel. We returned at 8:30 the next morning. It only took 30 minutes to get the car but by the time we left, the line was probably at the 1.5 hour wait length, based on the line the night before. Hire more agents!! That said, the people were friendly despite the workload. The clerks were doing their usual attempts at up-sells on insurance, gas and tolls but didn't press when you just said no thanks. The shuttle drivers were helpful, took us back to the airport when we asked. The woman outside assigning cars was so dedicated - it was obvious that these were her cars and she was trying to do a good job getting them out to clients.

We had to wait an hour in line at the counter. The size of vehicle I reserved was not available when we got there, even though I paid in full ahead of time. I was not able to carry all the passengers i needed to on my vacation. Very frustrating experience.

We used Routes Car Rental. Price was phenomenal. The location was a little off the beaten path but you can’t beat the price and assistance from staff members. Keke was amazing! Super helpful.

Smooth check in, pickup and drop off. A better online check in to save time in line would improve the experience.

The counter agent really pushed their "services" which only would increase the price of the rental dramatically. After saying "no" several times the agent came to the conclusion that I wasn't interested in the extra fees. Very irritating.

Price was good. Everything else - not so much! They did not have the car type that I ordered, out of the selection in the lot (or different car types) - several cars were not functional, the key was missing, and other issues that prevented me from getting any reasonable car. The car I did get, had a lot of miles on it, did not ride very smooth (making various weird noises), and the driver window did not seal well so breezy cold air and LOTS of wind noise were always present!! Poor experience.

We were forced to wait two hours to pick up our car. There were at least 100 people in line in front of us. It was the worst car pick up experience of my life. The car was not clean we found french fries in between the seats. We also found someone’s water bottle in the car. The car had a strange smell. Not Recommended.

We had to wait about 45 minutes to get our vehicle due to the rental car shortage but they were kind enough to upgrade our vehicle and take a day off our rental cost. It was unfortunate but they provided good service under the circumstances!

Quick and easyI was in and out in 10 min. Super nice people and easy drop offIt took 5-10 min for them to open the gate to let people out. There was a line of about 10 cars just impatiently waiting for no reason. Had I not waited for the gate, I would have been in and out in less than 3 min which would have been impressive.

No mention that US license was prohibitedthe carI live outside the USA. I occasionally go to the US and I need to rent a car. in the past I rented through kayak and europcar without a problem. however this time when I arrived I gave the representative my drivers license - which is a US drivers license - and they told me I could not rent the car. instead I would need to rent a new one for 3 times the price. they said an international rental could not be done in the USA with a USA license. However NOWHERE WAS I EVER INFORMED OF THIS. NOWHERE IS THIS RESTRICTION LISTED IN THE AGREEMENT THAT I SIGNED WITH EUROPCAR. I was forced to spend $150 on Uber for two days, and i went to AAA with Uber and for $20 i changed my license to an international license, and went all the way back to the airport to rent my same car - having wasted two days of the rental.

TrapaçaA empresa se negou a entregar a SUV media reservado, e nos cobrou o dobro por uma SUV padrão! É a segunda vez que essa empresa trapaceia, ha um ano se negaram a entreagr o carro apenas com a cobertura de seguro do cartao de crédito. Atendimento péssimo, equipe mal educada e “treinada para roubar o cliente!!

Top tips for hiring a car in Denver

  • Explore all the attractions of Denver in the city or further out, conveniently with a rental car. The Golden Gate Canyon State Park is located about 30 miles from Denver, as are many parks and reserves dotted around the surrounding areas, and discovering them becomes considerably easier with a car. Passionate hikers can even go as far as the Rocky Mountains, about a 2-hour drive from Denver. Denver airport is also quite remote from the city center, so choosing a rental car is beneficial to quickly get to your next destination.
  • Car rentals have pick-up and drop-off points at Denver International Airport, so you can conveniently drive into the city and to a hotel or other accommodation. Shuttles from Jeppesen Terminal located on level 5 go directly to the Car Rental Center, free of charge. There are plenty of car rental services on offer at the airport, including Avis, Hertz or E-Z Rent-A-Car, among less popular ones which may have cheaper deals.
  • As with many bigger cities, Denver tends to clog up during rush hours and navigating a car through the intersections and narrow streets may take some patience and extra concentration. Denver has a reputation of having rather aggressive drivers who don’t always follow the road regulations, however if you allow extra time for each trip and double-check before taking a turn then driving should not be a problem. Pay special attention at big intersections alongside Colorado Boulevard, as they can be confusing and drivers do not always adhere to the right of way.
  • Try to avoid driving during rush hour, usually peaking between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays. Especially the Interstate 70 east-west-bound and the I-25 north-south-bound are regularly congested during peak hours and traffic jam delays can be up to an hour, so especially when you need to catch a plane, leave a significant amount of time. Also remember that the winters in Denver can be cold and provide difficult road conditions. Make sure to drive at reduced speeds and ensure that your rental car has appropriate winter gear.
