Top tips for hiring a car in Aurora

  • Rent a car during your stay in Aurora to benefit from the freedom and flexibility it brings to explore everything on display in your own time. Aurora is plonked next to Denver city, whose center is only a 20-minute car ride away. Hikers and nature lovers can also seize the opportunity to venture out to the Rocky Mountain National Wildlife Refuge, which is also only a 20 minutes’ drive to the north.
  • Denver International Airport is only 17 miles from Aurora’s center and features several onsite car hire agencies which serve visitors with cars in all shapes and sizes. Complimentary shuttles operate between Jeppesen Terminal and the car hire offices. They leave from and return to Level 5 at island 4. Bear in mind that tolls apply on the E-470, but drivers can get to Aurora via Peña Boulevard.
  • Driving in Aurora has a bad reputation with the city ranking as one of the worst cities to drive in, but that should not deter travelers, as good preparation and driving defensively are key aspects for a smooth experience during your stay. Part of the reason why driving in Aurora can be challenging comes down to the weather. With thunderstorms and tornadoes in the summer as well as sleet in the winter, roads can be treacherous, but by adapting speed and slowing down, drivers should face no major problems.
  • Aurora has a high population density and during rush hour the roads can face severe congestion. Avoid driving on weekdays from 7 to 9 am and from 5 to 8 pm to evade the worst traffic, and plan ample of time ahead before going to a destination (especially when going to a game or to the airport). In the winter, it is pivotal to check that the car is equipped with winter tires and to drive carefully – especially when headed into the mountains.
  • Book your car hire in Aurora at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Especially in the winter, or when severe weather conditions prevail, it is essential to reduce your speed.

Expect to pay around $2 per gallon when getting petrol in Aurora. The cheapest petrol stations include Costco, Sam’s Club, and Safeway. Travelers who intend to leave Aurora’s city limits and explore the Rocky Mountain Reserve should definitely refill the tank beforehand, as petrol stations become less and less frequent once you get out into the mountains.

Use metered on-street parking for short-term parking and garages or lots if you will need a little longer. On-street parking varies in time and price, so check the designated meter or kiosk. Parking lots and garages like the City of Aurora Iliff Parking Garage or East Colfax Avenue Parking have less time restrictions.
