KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Moab

  • Opting for car hire in Moab offers the freedom to explore the stunning natural wonders of the surrounding areas that are not always accessible by public transport. While there are public buses operated by Grand County Travel Council, having a car gives you the flexibility to visit places like Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park at your own pace. Plus, driving through scenic routes, like the Colorado River Scenic Byway, is an experience in itself.
  • When arriving at Canyonlands Field Airport (CNY) in Moab, consider Moab car hire directly from the airport to start your adventure without delay. You'll find the car hire desks conveniently located inside the main terminal building. After exiting the Arrivals area, head towards the Baggage Claim area. The car hire desks of major companies like Avis, Budget, and Enterprise are situated near the Baggage Claim, making it easy to proceed with your car hire process. From there, the staff will guide you through the necessary paperwork and provide further instructions for collecting your hire car, which will be parked nearby in the airport car park.
  • While driving a car hire in Moab, you'll be treated to a pleasant experience with well-maintained roads and favourable driving conditions. However, do watch out for pedestrians and cyclists, who are commonly found in downtown Moab along Main Street and Centre Street. One unique element of driving in Moab is the opportunity to witness breathtaking views while driving through the Colorado River Scenic Byway.
  • There are no significant rush hour times to avoid in Moab, as it is a smaller city. However, during peak tourism seasons, such as spring and autumn, there may be increased traffic in the popular national parks. During peak tourism seasons, expect increased traffic on popular routes such as Highway 128 and Highway 313. Some unique challenges include encountering large recreational vehicles (RVs) on narrow scenic roads like Shafer Trail and Potash Road.
  • Book your car hire in Moab at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Moab are around 16% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Moab?

    When considering car hire in Moab, pay attention to the area's diverse terrains. A versatile SUV is highly recommended. It provides excellent handling on winding mountain roads, like Route 128, and offers ample space for outdoor equipment, for hiking, camping and rock climbing. A compact car is also suitable for city driving, especially if you plan to explore downtown Moab with its narrower streets. If you're venturing into off-road trails, hiring a Jeep or a 4x4 vehicle will enhance your experience. Just remember to check with your car hire company if off-roading is permitted.

  • What's the speed limit in Moab?

    In Moab, the speed limits vary depending on the area. Generally, within city limits, the speed limit is 25 mph. On state highways, like US-191, the speed limit is typically 65 mph. AVIS Car Hire, a reputable company in Moab, takes speeding violations seriously. If you receive a speed fine while driving your hire vehicle, they will first notify you about the violation and the associated fine. In addition to the fine imposed by the local authorities, AVIS Car Hire may charge an administrative fee for processing the violation.

  • Where are the best places to park in Moab?

    Moab offers various parking options, and while some areas require payment, others offer free parking. In downtown Moab, expect paid parking, with rates ranging from $1 to $2 per hour (£0.72 to £1.44 per hour). Alternatively, you can find free parking options slightly farther from the centre, so you can utilise public transport or walk to explore the city. Additionally, many hotels and accommodation in Moab provide complimentary parking for their guests, such as Red Cliffs Lodge and Hoodoo Moab, Curio Collection by Hilton.

Oct 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

They did give us a bit of a discount, which helped with the added cost of transportation downtown from airport, but it was very upsetting

Cons:

My booking was intended to be at the airport. I googled “grand junction car rentals” and it automatically propagated the downtown location for me, but it did not say non airport. It should have been clearer that this was not an airport rental. When I went back on the website after my trip to see what went wrong, it did the same thing. If I change the location that said Grand Junction then I see the top choice is airport, but the original google search automatically put in the downtown location as pick up and drop off. When I do searches in Kayak and other sites it is very clear, but the Enterprise site was not. This was very inconvenient! I’ve never had this happen before.

Enterprise went above and beyond! They were friendly and very accommodating. Our hotel was far from town, so they picked us up with our car and then dropped us back off at our hotel after we returned the rental. We would have had a very difficult time with transportation to and from the hotel otherwise. The employees were cognizant and understanding. The car itself was clean and reliable.

I was charged an additional $500 for a “one way fee” however no one could explain to me why I was charged. It was not on my original receipt and the worker at the return desk could not explain it. I called customer service and was only refunded $300. No workers could explain why I was charged this fee. I would like an additional $200 refunded for this fee that could not be explained to me.

Aug 2020

Pros:

The staff was absolutely horrible, I made a reservation online.. when my plane landed.. the car rental place was closed an I had to fine away out of the airport. When I called customer service they told me they couldn't help me and it wasn't their problem.. No when I asked to be transferred to a supervisor she informed me there was no one there to assist me and hung up.. so not only did I not get my rental at all.. but I also had the most rude representative on earth.. very upset!! Wasted a total of 3 hours of my time

Cons:

make sure if you are accepting reservations for rentals.. that someone is actually there to assist the customer.. and bump up your customer service... absolutely appalled.

I booked the rental on Kayak, was charged for the optional travel insurance, then 10min later the car lot called to say they had no cars available. This was the second time it happened th at day, the town was sold out, but Kayak kept showing they had inventory available for rent. I was charged $33 from Allianz and it has not been refunded.

The vehicle was supposed to be at an offsite location. I hailed an Uber at the airport and went to the location at around 4pm on 3/3. It was closed, no one alerted me. Cost me $40 to go back to the airport. There were no other rental cars available. We had to hire a Lyft ride to take us from Grand Junction to Aspen.

Pros:

Not much - was a super average

Cons:

The staff here were wonderful the second day, but the pick-up was very hostile, and dismissive. They did the usual add-on speel - you want X, X, X? However they tried to push an upgrade on me - I live here and I think they thought I was a tourist. You do NOT need a full 4x4 for these mountain roads... This is Colorado, not the steppes of Mongolia.
