As a gateway to the Rocky Mountains with unique architecture and a booming arts scene, Denver offers both fantastic weekends in the city and longer vacations in nature. Your vacation could involve camping and hiking trips, sightseeing tours in the city or longer road trips to some of America’s stunning national parks like Yellowstone or Moab. If you are visiting Denver in winter, it’s best to rent a more robust vehicle like an SUV or sedan in case snow is in store. Here you can find tips on some of the most convenient vehicle types for a variety of vacation needs.
Best Car For A Short Weekend Trip
With Denver’s proximity to the Rocky Mountains, you could easily fit a hiking trip and city sightseeing into one weekend. While our compact cars are not the most rugged mountain vehicles, they have enough power to reach the Rockies’ parking lots while also being excellent for parking and navigating in Denver itself. They are also an affordable option, both in terms of our SIXT car rental deals and fuel consumption.
Best Car For a Family
Sedans are in many ways the ideal family car but if you are taking the whole family plus luggage and equipment into the Rocky Mountains, we highly recommend a more spacious and robust SUV. They are fitted with excellent driver assistance systems and infotainment to help you park safely and navigate. You can transport up to 7 passengers in our full-size SUV models and minivans. Comfortable seating and extra legroom will enable your passengers to stretch out and at SIXT you can reserve child, baby and booster seats online to fit your vehicle to your needs.
Best Car For Parking
If you are mainly staying in the city to explore Denver’s architecture and thriving culinary and arts scenes, a compact car is a great choice. They are easier to parallel park and can fit into a wider variety of parking spots, and despite their compact size, they are surprisingly roomy. With on-street parking being fairly limited in Denver, being behind the wheel of a compact car that is easy to maneuver can be a distinct advantage. If you decide to go for a larger vehicle, it may be good to find a good parking lot in advance of your trip.
