Better Car Rental Prices For SUV @ Denver Airport?

Jump to last reply

Folks - I've been traveling to Summit County for years, renting at the Denver Airport, but prices this year have just skyrocketed. What I used to get for $500 (SUV) is now $700-$900. I know, I know, you don't NEED an SUV, but we like to drive around from mtn to mtn, have little kids, and don't want to risk getting stuck.

I started looking at off-airport locations 5-10 miles from Pena Blvd (suggested in this forum), but I've got a flight scheduling conflict - those locations I found are either closed on Sundays or close at 2PM. My flight gets in Sunday at 1PM, too close to risk getting stuck without a car due to a flight delay.

I'm now considering taking a taxi deep into dtwn Denver, rent a car there, but that's killing at least an hour, if not more depending on traffic. The fact that Hertz can charge $900+ on the airport lot but charge $475 for the same period of time 5 miles away is insulting. I understand some markup, but 90% just for convenience?

Aren't there any better alternatives?!?! Help me, wise Fodors denizens. Thanks!
