Colorado car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Colorado?

Colorado is host to a varied collection of landscapes and roads, and the conditions can change depending on your destinations and the season. Driving in Denver and other cities is generally simple enough, with well structured layouts and maintained roads. When heading into the mountains and desert areas, however, steep inclines and unsealed or potentially damaged roads will often come up; this may affect your choice of car rentals in Colorado, as a 4x4 may make navigating these areas easier. Given that many come to Colorado to explore the Rocky Mountains, even cheap car hire providers will usually cater to adventurous needs.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in the United States?

The main law that will be dramatically different from driving in the UK is that people in the United States drive on the opposite side of the road. This takes a minute to adjust to, and on top of different types of intersections and laws around them, can be confusing to those unfamiliar with American roads. Certain intersections allow you to turn on a red light after proceeding to a full stop, where it is safe to do so, usually just to the right but on one-way streets to the left as well. There are also minimum speed limits as well as maximums, to avoid obstruction of traffic flow, and a law on single lane inclined roads that vehicles descending must give way to those ascending. Be sure to check with local city departments to be across and up to date with all laws.

What documents do I need to hire a car in the United States?

A driver’s licence that is full, valid and has been held for at least one year is the main requirement, as well as a secondary form of photo identification, which would usually be your passport. Be aware that many car rental providers across the United States enforce a minimum age of 21, and most car hire offices will apply an additional young driver fee to those under the age of 25; this does vary across individual companies, so do be sure to check these details if you are under this age. If you have your own insurance coverage that you plan to use with your car rental in Colorado, be sure to bring paperwork detailing the validity and details of your policy with you.

Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Colorado?

If you plan to make the most of a limited time, definitely hire a car in Colorado. Public transit systems are efficient in populated areas, but if you plan to venture into the beauty of Colorado outside of its cities, car hire, in comparison to other forms of transport, is a clear winner. Car rental removes the limits on your options for your itinerary and the lost time navigating or connecting through public or private transport systems. Whether luxury or cheap car rental, solo or a large group, finding the perfect car rental for you is simple through momondo.
