KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Fort Collins

  • Planning the itinerary for a visit to a new city can be a daunting task because you don’t know what attractions to see and what activities to choose from. It gets even more complicated when you have to plan everything around public transportation, which can limit your trip or restrict you to specific places. If you have a rental car in Fort Collins, it can be a lot easier for you to see and do everything you want in the city while moving at your own pace. You can go as far as 46 miles away to Rocky Mountain National Park or 76 miles away to the Red Rocks Park at your own convenience.
  • When you arrive at the Denver International Airport, you’ll find the Car Rental Center on the airport grounds. There are several major car rentals in Fort Collins that provide courtesy shuttle services to and from the Jeppesen Terminal. The shuttle will pick you up at Terminal Level 5, Island 4 outside doors 504 and 512 on the west side and doors 505 and 513 on the east side. Some of the car rental agencies available include Hertz, Enterprise, Avis, National, and Budget.
  • Fort Collins is a relatively small city, and the roads can be quite congested at times. In addition to vehicle traffic, you’ll need to keep a lookout for pedestrians as well. If you plan to visit in the fall, be wary of hitting wild animals, especially deer, as they mate around November. Pedestrians have the right of way in Colorado, so yield to crosswalks and be on the lookout when turning right on red.
  • Rush hour in Fort Collins is usually at its peak about 6am to 10am and again from about 4pm to 6pm. There are several traffic circles placed throughout the city, so be watchful for pedestrians and cyclists. Intersections, including those at Timberline and Carpenter Road, College Avenue and Drake Road, and Harmony Road and Boardwalk Drive, are some of the most congested. You’ll also find that Fort Collins has traffic and red-light cameras installed in various locations, so be careful not to break the law.
  • Book your rental car in Fort Collins at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Fort Collins are around 1% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

The service that I received during the pick up of the rental could not have been better. The assistant manager at this location went above and beyond and because of this our vacation was improved 10 fold. I could not be happier.

Cons:

During the drop off I had to get a ride that was on a time table. The return took considerably longer than the pickup due to the staffing of the office. (Only one person working at the time) With that being said they did what they could and I left a happy customer. They will do whatever they can to earn your return business and I recommend them without hesitation.

Pros:

The car I ended up with was a nice, clean, Chevy Cruze.

Cons:

Upon arrival they harassed me because I had made the reservation that same day. According to Avis, if you do so, you must call the pick-up branch to confirm availability. Since i had not been made aware of that, i hadn't done such. So, they were out Economy vehicles, and they refused me any vehicle without a substantial upcharge.

It took too long to get the vehicle. We were given something other than what is on the paperwork given to us by Avis employee…..that he has me sign. The paperwork stated a Chevrolet Equinox and we were given a Toyota 4Runner that had expired license tag. I also asked to have the option of paying for a tank of gas at the time of rental so as not to worry upon return and that did not happen.

Tried to charge me double the quoted price, got a smaller car than I ordered, and the car smelt like smoke. Worst rental experience that caused me time away from what I was there for.

Rented a car online, went to pick it up across town and was told by an extremely rude agent at the Walmart in Ft Collins Colorado that there were no cars and it only allowed my reservation due to a “glitch” in the system. The agent then belittled me for making my reservation that day saying I should have reserved it sooner. I will never rent from Budget or Avis again. Their employees need to be trained and some terminated.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and helpful on both ends

Cons:

Car was not ready to be driven. Oil change was past due kept getting messages the entire trip that it was past due. The air in the tires was 27, 30, 45 and 39 which is ridiculous obviously NO ONE did a review of the car before I picked it up. I had to pull over twice to get the tire pressure correct and from the time I left the oil change light was on. In addition the windows on the inside were not cleaned and therefore caused issued with night vision. I give you an F on preparation, worst condition of any rental car I have ever driven
