Which car rental company at Denver International Airport ...

... should I select?

On previous road trips we've used Dollar and Alamo and Avis without any problems, and I think I'd like to use one of them again when starting our next road trip in July.

Has anyone rented from any of them at Denver Airport, and how was your experience, good or bad?

Thanks

Gorcat

I had a great experience with Enterprise in July. Very friendly staff. No hard sells. Very close to airport. No waiting.

They are all the same. You should select the one that is cheapest.

Roy, I've heard good reports about Enterprise at Denver but they appear to be the most expensive option for a Full Size car for 14 nights in July

: $853.66 + Damage Waiver + Local Taxes.

Again for a full size car from Alamo or Dollar or Avis, here are the rates I was quoted. These rates include full CDW waiver, local taxes, full tank of gas (no charge to return less than full) and depending on rental company) from 1 to 3 extra drivers.

Alamo (Gold) quoted £376.29 ( approx $602)

Dollar (Platinum) quoted £469.96 (approx $751)

Avis (via British Airways) quoted £458.00 (approx $732)

Don't know why Enterprise are so expensive, but they were only company not to give me an option of a price in British Pounds, whereas the above three companies automatically quoted me in British Pounds.

As smushie recommends going with the cheapest, I may just do that (Alamo) or else with Avis via British Airways, as that is who we are flying with.

I had wondered if the level of service between the companies above had any major differences, but to answer my own question, it's probably down to individuals irrespective of company.

Still, it would be good to hear of any more reviews from hirers at DEN.

Thanks

Do at TA search for many opinions on various rental companies. Some real horror stories.

Other option to save is to go offsite with Avis at the Doubletree Hotel. Shuttle will take you there from DEN and you can return direct to airport.

What sort of area is Doubletree in? Is there things to do/see as we have some spare time to use in Denver area?

Thanks

Sorry can't help with that area. Here's the Avis link if you didn't find it yet:

We've had good luck using Priceline to get reasonable car rental rates at DEN.

We've rented from both EZ and Budget. Both have proved the cheapest monitoring it online for best deals up till departure and changing reservations with lower rates in the weeks right before our summer travels. We've paid 300 or a bit over for up to 8 days or so in a basic four door vehicle (last time an Elantra which we loved). We've had no problems with either, renting straight from the airport car rentals.

We have used this option and will be going for it again this year. Much less than airport rental and return is super easy at the airport! Definitely look into this!
