2.0 Mediocre27 Jun 2021
Pros: Nothing. Didn't get the car.Cons: So, Ace in Denver closes at 8:00 pm. Ok, that's fine, but they stop running the shuttle from the airport at 7:45. So, when I arrived at the rental car shuttle pickup at about 7:47, all the rental car busses are coming and going but no sign of an Ace bus. So, I call, and they inform me that despite the fact that I'm standing there waiting before 8:00, the last bus has left and they will not send it back but that I can pick up my car in the morning. Needless to say, I hopped on the next Payless bus and got a better car from them for less money. I guess I could say thank you to Ace for their poor customer service since it worked out fine in the end.
2.0 Mediocre19 Jun 2021
Cons: Beware! Pick up times are not as stated. I was stranded at the airport with no rental car.
2.0 Mediocre14 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly enough but understaffed and determined to sell every extra option. Car was nice and drove well.Cons: More shuttles. Long wait at terminal on arrival and similar wait after drop off. Rental office is a couple miles from the terminal. Long, slow lines at rental office with not enough agents. Some agents did not appear to work quickly with each customer despite long line of waiting people. Some agents push hard for customers to upgrade or add options that increase cost. This further slows the transaction and is aggravating if you are number 15 in line. Won’t use Ace again.
2.0 Mediocre13 Apr 2021
Pros: Drop Off was quick and easyCons: Pickup was a nightmare. Spent an hour at least just waiting for a car. Staff was nice but small talking everyone to try and slow everything down. The toll fee scam they are running is world class. $50 PLUS the toll if you dont pre-purchase their toll scam at $10/day??? Come on! If Denver had an option to pay at the toll then i can see this being justified, but when the city requires toll by plate this is just a scam
10.0 Excellent13 Apr 2021
Pros: I like it because the price was lowest. Others are ordinary. No negative factor.Cons: I have no complaint.
4.0 Okay6 Apr 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy and the shuttle came 2 minutes after.Cons: The car had 44,000 on it and was more like Rent a wreck. The car had a sweet, chemical smell in it, Iike it was covering up cigarette smoke. Needed the windows open. No screen on car dash for navigation from your phone.
8.0 Excellent5 Apr 2021
Cons: Communication on toll roads.
2.0 Mediocre19 Mar 2021
Pros: I didn't like anything about this experienceCons: The salesman completely upsold me as the car that I rented "wasn't available". I knew I was being taken advantage of, but didn't feel like there was anything I could do.

Cons: Within the Silvercar App, they had the wrong address for the drop-off location.

Excellent fun car/suv to drivePros: The Silvercar rental people were amazing. They explained all the features of the Audi I rented. They were super helpful when I had to switch the car for the Audi SUV due to more people arriving for Christmas. I would highly recommend using Silvercar to rent an Audi in Denver. Super fun car and SUV to drive!Cons: The only issue I had was navigating the web site, but I believe that was both an issue using a third party rental and my lack of knowledge. Once I got ahold of a Silvercar representative the issue was resolved quickly.

Quick and easyPros: Was very easy to pick up. Just downloaded the app and they scanned it when I arrived. It took less than 5 minutes from the time I got there to when I left.Cons: The WiFi was the only issue. It said it was connected but didn’t work but they gave me a credit for the problem.
10.0 Excellent3 Jul 2018
PerfectPros: Car was clean, brand new, will definitely rent with silver car again.
6.8 Good1 Jul 2018
Pros: Liked that the cost was comparable to a normal rentalCons: Got there at 530 am and no one was there (they were supposed to open at 5am). Had to wait, then the girl who checked us in didn't explain anything about the lot (there was a specific card in the vehicle we had to show to get out)

Pros: The staff was friendly, and detailed .Cons: I wish the price could've been better. Covid or not, companies are capitalizing .
2.0 Mediocre19 Jul 2020
Cons: Had to make a change to reservation. Removed 1 day from reservation and enterprise jacked up the price over $100 for 3 less days. Terrible company. I will never use enterprise again. Canceled reservation. I was told that a price increase was because of increased demand. They are liars. They don't care about their customers only care about ripping them off.
10.0 Excellent1 Dec 2019
Pros: Helpful and friendly staff. Kelly kept in touch with me the week before and up to my reservation date. The checkout was quick and easy. The drop-off was after hour and was just as simple.

Don't deliver on promiseCons: I made a reservation through Kayak for a rental from Enterprise. Half hour later when I went to get the rental, the agency had no vehicles. In fact no enterprise in town had any rental cars available. Why make a reservation if you don't know what was available in an area. We had a last minute car trouble and needed the rental very bad. I will not use kayak for car rentals in the future

2.0 Mediocre6 Jun 2021
Pros: It was easy to book.Cons: Routes requires a passport in order to pick up the car. I believe this should be made clear prior to the booking being made. I am in the US and misunderstood that ID does not mean drivers license. Because of this, I was out $160. I wasn’t able to pick up the car and the rental agent on the phone was not helpful. He kept saying just make a new reservation. I asked if I could speak to a manager about a refund or credit and he said one wasn’t available. Even though it was ultimately my mistake that caused this, I think the customer service could have been better. Had the agent been more empathetic, maybe I would try to use Routes in the future but this experience has left a sour taste in my mouth. Especially as I was able to go to Enterprise at the very last minute and get a brand new car for $111. It had been an extremely long day, my phone died while waiting to speak to a route’s manager, I was hungry, and still had to drive a while to get to my destination. Enterprise made it so easy. I was on the road in less than 20 minutes. Routes has some work to do in terms of serving the customer. It seemed like they are just after the dollar.

Top tips for renting 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

  • To brace for Aurora’s rough weather ranging from heavy rain showers, icy roads, and even tornadoes, a 4-wheel-drive car is a safe option for your stay. It will provide the traction for winding mountain roads and promises a smoother and safer driving experience in and around Aurora.

  • While only 20-25 mph is permitted for driving in the city and on winding mountain roads, up to 40 mph can be driven on open mountain highways. Regular rural highways permit even up to 55 mph. 65 mph is usually allowed on freeways, though there are some stretches that allow up to 75 mph. 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. Rates start at $3 per hour and are posted before driving into the lot or garage.
