27 Jan. 2017
Pros: Pick up was okay. However it went downhill. My rental car was filthy. After two days I had to put 10lbs in a tire. No ice scraper included. Getting car back to drop off was a nightmare. Location not with other car rental companies, absolutely no signage, GPS took me to a field. Getting a local person to give me verbal directions was a challenge. Good thing I had left early.

car was filthy
Cons: they didnt tell me that I would be charged a $200.00 immediate withdrawal from my checkingdebit account and then when I returned it they said because I didnt use a credit card, my refund would come in 2-5 business DAYS. Totally not cool!! With the car being delivered to me filthy they said they would give me a $10.00 credit if I washed it myself. This place sucked.

Price changed when I arrived.Haggle techniques,Rude customer service.
Pros: Nothing at all. I literally booked with someone else and walked out.
Cons: No signage, poor facility, originally the price on line was $48 total. When I arrived to pick up the car they changed the price to $280.00 total. No joke, that is a true story. Then they used haggle techniques to negotiate the price. Zero transparency. Rude customer service, all around terrible. Honestly if the owners of this company get to read this I suggest that they find another business venture.

Thieves.
Pros: I liked the upgraded car they gave me for my trouble, except for the fact I reserved a small sedan and was given the option of an Expedition, Ford F150, or this Dodge Durango (which is what I took).
Cons: I needed a small car because I was spending my vacation in downtown Denver and had to parallel park in tight spaces. Also, I was told at pickup I would have to pay $195. Instead I left that day having to pay $518!!!!!!! So angry.

Pros: Price only
Cons: I asked for a small car but was told my account showed up as "Dealers' Choice". They offered me only huge vehicles: Ford Explorer or a Dodge Caravan. I asked again, and they said these were my only choices. I took the huge ford, but it was so big, I didn't feel comfortable driving it and just parked it at my friends house. I didn't drive it the whole time I was at my destination! Also I did not like the unprofessional office situation. Ace is located in a mobile home way out in the outback.

Stranded
Pros: Not a thing
Cons: No signs at airport . Shuttle service took over an hour wait . They only had 3 vehicles on the lot when we arrived and it was in the middle of a parking lot in a construction trailer, they added on additional fees . Do not recommend this service !!

Cons: Location was very far from airport. There was one employee at desk and had to wait in line one hour. Very unprofessional set up and you were on your own to do everything. There wasn't even a sign at airport where to get their shuttle and we had to ask several people and no one knew. It was only car rental company with no sign posted and no shuttle that showed up for 30 minutes.

Worst car rental experience, no signs, don't leave state
Pros: The van driver was courteous and helpful as was the woman at the counter.
Cons: No ACE signs at the airport, happened onto an ACE van, driver nice and helpful. I initially thought the rental clerk was kidding when she told me I couldn't take the car out of Colorado and that if I took it to Wyoming, fewer than 100 miles from the airport, the GPS would report it and the car would be reported stolen! I declined the risk of a felony theft charge, but was unable to find an alternative rental with no notice for even twice what ACE had offered. Fortunately I was able to rely on friends and family, but if I had been anywhere else it would have been a very expensive problem. Never Again.

Cons: I found out at the checkout that I could not drive the car out of state. I had ro change my reservation and rebook with another agency. It was very expensive.

Excellent fun car/suv to drive
Pros: 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.

Silvercar Very Friendly and Easy to Deal With
Cons: Could not connect to the WiFi at the pickup point. So glad there was an attendant on duty. She says this happens somewhat frequently. It would have been a real disaster if we would have arrived late and no one was there.

Great value and convenience
Pros: Driving and A4. We've owned Audis for years, so it was like driving our own car. Great pickup and dropoff service.
Cons: Our first time with Silvercar, we were not quite sure how the airport pickup worked. Once we got that worked out, we loved everything else.

Pros: Liked that the cost was comparable to a normal rental
Cons: 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: 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.

Pros: We had a good experience and saved the airport taxes.

The agency didn't have the car we reserved availab
Pros: We reserved our SUV 6 weeks prior to Christmas vacation in the mountains but once we arrived they informed us that they only had small compact cars available. With 3 kids and fresh snow in the mountains that didn't work very well and put our family at significant risk.
4.4 Okay
2 Feb. 2017
Pros: The only reason I used this location was because it was much cheaper than the airport location.
Cons: I didn't like the fact that they did not have the premium pickup truck that rented over a month prior. Their excuse was that they can't possibly have all the cars that people reserve on site because they would run out of business. I don't buy that; it is seems like a cop out excuse when they have overbooked their inventory.

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 rental agencies which serve visitors with cars in all shapes and sizes. Complimentary shuttles operate between Jeppesen Terminal and the car rental 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 rental car in Aurora at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Aurora?

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.

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

How are gas prices in Aurora?

Expect to pay around $2 per gallon when getting gas in Aurora. The cheapest gas 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 gas stations become less and less frequent once you get out into the mountains.

Where are the best places to park in Aurora?

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.
