  • When renting a car in Colorado Springs with kids, it is important to know that infants and toddlers and children between 1 and 3 years of age and weighing up to 40 lb. should be placed in a rear-facing car seat in the back seat.

They are strategically installing public charging stations at various places like shopping centers, public parking lots, and high-traffic areas. These stations offer both Level 2 charging and, in some cases, fast DC charging, catering to the needs of different electric vehicle models. This expansion of EV charging stations makes renting an electric vehicle an attractive option in the area. Not only do you contribute to environmental conservation, but you also enjoy the convenience of readily available charging options while exploring popular destinations and attractions.
  • To get to the center of town from the airport, head east on Milton E Proby Parkway toward Aviation Way.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Colorado Springs, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on February 28, 2024.

Where will I find all the rental car companies at Colorado Springs Airport (COS)?

The car rental agencies' check-in counters, both on-site and off-airport, are conveniently located in the baggage claim area. Off-airport rental car companies provide a courtesy van service to transport customers to and from the airport. Despite being a smaller regional airport, you still have a selection of around seven major rental car brands to choose from. Returning your rental car is also hassle-free due to the airport's easy accessibility, making the pick-up and drop-off process straightforward. However, if you decide to rent from an off-airport agency, keep in mind that you should factor in the time it takes to ride in a shuttle back to the airport when planning for your departure flight.

Can I drive my rental to another state or to Canada?

The majority of rental companies permit vehicles to be driven into Canada without any restrictions. However, it is essential to inform the rental counter during the reservation process about your intention to drive into Canada. This way, the location can furnish you with a copy of a Canadian Non-Resident Insurance Card to ensure you are adequately covered during your trip. Driving cars to other states is usually allowed as well, but it's advisable to check with your rental company if you plan to return the vehicle to a different state to confirm any specific requirements or procedures.
