Colorado Springs favorites

Colorado Springs is a dream for jocks and outdoors enthusiasts — put on your best activewear and head to Colorado Springs to get your heart pumping.

Legend goes that this mountain was the inspiration for the song “America the Beautiful.” The surrounding forest is home to lots of wildlife, hiking trails, three pristine lakes, and some even say Bigfoot.

Robert is the person to go to for a car rental in Colorado Springs. Communication during all phases of the rental was outstanding and the car was ready to go when we arrived. The car itself was clean and in excellent condition. It drove great and was also quite good on gas mileage. Robert was very flexible when I needed to extend the rental for 3 hours do to a changed airline ticket. Excellent across the board!!!!

Victoria’s Honda was very clean, has great gas mileage, and she had a full tank of gas ready for us! She was flexible and checked up on us during the trip. There was a huge hail storm a week before we visited Colorado Springs therefore it was difficult trying to find a rental car. Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, etc. around the area were all out of rental cars. We were thankful that despite of the high demand for rental cars during the time, Victoria did not raise the price on her car rental! She kept her rental price at $35/day! Very affordable! We had such a great experience with Victoria. Thank you again!

Simple and easy. Denisha was on-time (or early) for pick up and drop off right at the terminal. If you want an easy rental for Colorado Springs, Denisha’s is the way to go. Thanks!

Renting this car from Prayas was a breeze. He was very easy to communicate with. Clean comfortable car to be able to explore colorado and I would recommend renting this car to anyone who is visiting Colorado Springs. 5 stars for sure!

Joe was super easy to work with, and did a great job communicating. The car was clean and got great gas mileage. Pick up and drop off were easy, and everything went smoothly. The car is a hybrid, so getting used to the silent running at low speed was something new. It gets 44 mpg, and the stereo is nice so it was a great car to explore Colorado Springs.

My husband and I enjoyed this car so much. This was our first experience with Turo and Jacob. We were very pleased and would not hesitate to work with Jacob again. The car was a blast to drive, top down, around Colorado Springs. Thanks to both Jacob and his wife for all they did to make the process seamless.

Robert was very easy going and responsive. The car was exactly what I needed. I took it up to Pikes Peak and the car didn’t even break a sweat. I drove around 700ish miles while staying in the Colorado Springs area thanks to two trips back and fourth to Denver.

I rented Rhoda's Mini because I had never driven a Mini but wanted to. It was not a disappointment! When I picked up Rhoda's Mini at the Colorado Springs airport it was clean, in good condition, and full of gas. Driving the car showed that it was well maintained, steered true, and operated flawlessly. Considering my personal fun car is a 2012 Porsche 911 Carerra, I am well acquainted with how a car should perform and have high expectations. Rhoda's Mini delivered!

Great experience renting Denisha’s car! Her car was absolutely perfect for our mini getaway in Colorado Springs! Not only does it look cool and edgy, but is also very fuel efficient, comfortable, and fun to drive! Denisha was super nice and made sure to check up on us during the duration of our stay to see if everything is working out great! Awesome car and awesome host! Will definitely rent again. Thanks Denisha!

Alex was one of my first impressions of Colorado & I couldn't have been more pleased with how cool of a person he was. He is so easy to communicate with. If you ever need a car in the Colorado Springs area, don't hesitate, Alex is the man. He even kindly drove me to the airport when I was departing since he was more familiar with the area. 6 stars.

This was my first Turo experience and I wasn't sure what to expect. But Johonnah was at the curb outside the airport waiting when I arrived and she explained how everything worked. The car was great. The process worked easily. I get to Colorado Springs every few months and I hope that her car is available when I return because it was a calm and relaxing experience..
Robert R. - December 24, 2018

Robert was excellent to work with! First time ever using the Turo app to rent a car and it was a great experience, I highly recommend renting from Robert and using Turo!

I can’t thank this amazing couple enough! After being unable to rent a car from the airport for a very important trip and having a terrible experience with a previous Turo host, which Turo quickly resolved, they came in and saved the day. And they are so thoughtful! The car came fully equipped with umbrella, aux cords, various charging cords... it was better than a rental car experience- to be honest. Thank you both!!
Nia B. - September 27, 2019

This was the best car rental experience I've ever had.!! Denisha was so friendly, punctual & flexible. She even personally brought me an item that I left in the rental. I rented her 2018 Toyota Camry-it was the sweetest car I've ever driven in my life... Thank you for everything 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Awesome car to drive!! He was super communicative, and didn’t make a big deal that I had to drive in a dirt road! Will be renting from him again.
Timeisha H. - October 15, 2019

Tony was awesome! I was flying standby and was unsure when I would be arriving, he worked around my schedule. He made everything as convenient as possible, and was very kind and polite. The car was great, very clean and drove smoothly. This was the only stress free car rental experience I’ve ever had. Would definitely recommend.
Marisa P. - June 18, 2019

My Dad is slowly dying from several blood disorders - he wanted to see the fall colors again here in Colorado so I rented a very nice sports car (he was a big time car guy as a younger man) as a special treat for our day together. Incredibly memorable - albeit a little melancholy but were not special - anyone who’s been lucky enough to live awhile has heartaches - if this turns out to be his last experience like this it will go down as a memorable one for sure. Thanks Amy and thanks Turo for making my Dad’s day!
Greg S. - October 3, 2019
Nissan Versa 2011
Anthony made the process easy as possible for me. His car operates smoothly and it’s very clean. The experience was everything I hoped for and more, I’d rent from Anthony a million times more as he is a fantastic person to talk to and he truly goes out of his way to meet all your needs. Thanks again Anthony!

This was so easy and stress free! Prayas stayed in touch, was flexible, came to drop the car to me and was really friendly and polite. The car was very clean, smelt amazing and got my up The interstate and back with no problems at all. I would definitely recommend Prayas and will hopefully use him again whilst I’m in this country! The price is reasonable and I felt safe and covered by the insurance I picked. I much prefer this over a standard car rental price as you see what you pay and it works out as less than most of the main car rental places as they add on so many extras which are needed to drive the car away. None of that hassle here! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Renting from Abbey was a great decision. She was on time, explained all the gadgets, and was very personable. The fact that Abbey would deliver the car to me and pick it up at my house for FREE sold me. The BMW ran great, everything worked, and I got several compliments on "my" Beamer, lol. All in all a great experience. I'll never rent from a corporate car rental agency again!

Best Colorado Springs driving roads

Pike’s Peak Highway

There’s a reason why one of the most famous hill climb races takes place on this highway. The series of narrow switchbacks that carve up the mountain make it an extraordinarily exciting drive in your Colorado Springs car rental alternative.

Million Dollar Highway

Littered with hairpin turns and sheer drop-offs, this highway serves up endless entertainment for the right driver — who won’t flinch at the tight S curves on Red Mountain Pass.

Skyline Drive

Follow the ridge above Cañon City along US 50 in your Colorado Springs car rental alternative for narrow mountain roads, impressive vistas, and an ancient preserved dinosaur footprint near the top.
