How old do you have to be to rent a car in Estes Park?

Usually, to rent a car in Estes Park you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the terms to determine what the exact fee will be before you rent your car.

Does Estes Park require rental car insurance?

When driving in Estes Park or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the rental agency.

You will have to search for a gas station close to the drop-off location

What fuel policy should I get?

We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Estes Park?

Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several clients all over Estes Park. You can cruise as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Review your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage limitations.

Know before you go

Before you begin on your Estes Park trip, be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:

  • Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new region
