Top tips for hiring a car at Gunnison airport

  • Getting a car rental at Gunnison Airport (GUC) offers a convenient way of exploring the scenic Colorado mountain town. You can drive to different locations that aren’t fully accessible by public transport. Renting a car also lets you travel in comfort, which is not the case when using most public transportation options at the airport. You can opt for shorter routes to your destination and avoid traffic or unnecessary stops with a rented car. Taxis are available at the airport, but they don’t present a cheaper alternative to renting when you compare the cumulative costs.
  • One benefit of getting a car rental at Gunnison Airport is that you’ll have an easy time collecting it. The airport hosts several car rental companies with an on-site desk. You’ll find the car rental desks at GUC in the Baggage Claim Area. Head to your preferred rental agency’s desk with the requested documents. After processing, collect the keys and let the company’s staff direct you to the pick-up location outside the Terminal doors. You should inspect the vehicle to ensure it’s in the perfect technical state. Also, make sure your maps are working perfectly, and the car is fueled.
  • Returning your car isn’t that complicated when you opt for a car rental at Gunnison Airport. You can drive to the airport and park the vehicle in the exact location you collected it. Most companies have their designated drop-off points indicated in the rental agreement or voucher. You should return the car before the agreed drop-off time to avoid additional charges. Inform your rental agency in advance if you’re unable to return the vehicle within the stated time frame. After returning the rental car, inspect it to ensure it’s in the perfect state before heading to your company’s rental counter to finalize the whole renting process.
  • Gunnison Airport is popular among tourists visiting the Colorado municipality and surrounding areas. The airport usually gets busy during summer. You’ll likely experience long queues at the airport’s rental section from April through early November. Most rental companies also record increased bookings during weekends, holidays, special events, and festivals like the Gunnison River Festival and The Original Growler.
  • Book your car hire at Gunnison airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Gunnison airport

  • What documents do I need to rent a car at Gunnison Airport?

    Renters are required to provide a valid driver’s license from their home country to rent a car at Gunnison Airport. The license should have been valid for at least one year. You should also present an International Driving Permit if you come from a country that doesn’t speak English. You may be asked to provide your passport or national ID for additional proof of identity. A valid credit card for payment is the other document that may be requested.

    Despite being a small regional airport, you can access several amenities when you rent a car at GUC. You’ll find a few dining options, free Wi-Fi, ATMs, baggage carts, and shops. If you’re traveling with your pet, you’ll find several animal relief areas for pets to take a potty break, drink water, and stretch their legs. The airport is ADA-compliant, so passengers with reduced mobility will have an easy time moving around.

  • How can I pay for my Gunnison Airport car rental?

Cons:

Kayak has earned my business for many years by making sure the quoted price wa accurate and incl all costs. I was quoted $367 for my car, received a Priceline confirmation at that price, but my rental agreement upon picking up the car was $441. After spending hours calling and getting the runaround on auto attendants and live support people who always blamed me or one of the other two parties (kayak, Priceline, Budget) I have no choice but to dispute the charges and never use Kayak or any other pricing engine. I’ll pay more to go direct.

Cons:

The car we were given was an "upgrade" but it was a larger car that was very underpowered for climbing mountain passes which decreased the mpg. Also, the inside windows were so dirty with foot prints and splatters, it was difficult to see. we had to make a stop to clean it so we could continue our trip.

I got insurance online when I booked. The agent was a little rude to me when I picked up the car cuz I didn't buy her insurance. How was I to know I was getting 3rd party insurance?

Pros:

Staff was courteous and friendly.

Cons:

The "premium" sedan I had reserved was "upgraded" to a compact SUV, a Ford Escape. If this is an upgrade, I'm sure the sedan was really disappointing! The rental rate was outrageously expensive! Over $200 for a one day, one way rental! I will never rent a car for this trip again!

Enterprise had no car for me because they had overbooked. I had to scramble at the last minute to find another car that cost more. The local agency said I would have to call the 800 number to get compensation for the additional cost and the supervisor on the 800 line said they could do nothing because that had to be handled by the local agency. Everybody was very sorry. A sorry operation indeed.
