by Mark Rebindaine | Published June 3, 2020
Situated in between Crow and Dry Creek, Cheyenne is the capital and largest city of Wyoming with a population of just over 60.000. From the historic downtown area to its amazing restau-rants and high-energy rodeos, Cheyenne has plenty to offer. In-deed, there’s a real cowboy feel to this area; the neighbouring countryside is full of bison and horses roaming around large farms.

For those looking to explore the areas in around the Cheyenne area, we have compared the various rental car companies on a va-riety of factors, such as opening hours, available cars and of course, daily rates. Here are our favourites.
Cheyenne’s sleepy airport lies just one mile north of downtown. From local, budget-friendly companies to global names like Avis and Enterprise, some of the biggest names in the business are represented at Cheyenne airport, however, our pick of the bunch went to Hertz. On our sample dates, we found compact and mid-size cars at around $60 per day while vehicles more suited to driving long distances and on rough terrains like the Jeep Cher-okee were $81 per day. Opening hours Monday – Friday 8am – 1pm, Saturday 9am – 12, Sunday, closed.
In general, the Enterprise agency at Cheyenne picks up rave re-views with customer’s particularly impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. Prices compare well too, with economy cars starting at around $22 per day and compact SUVs, like the Ford Eco Sport, only marginally over $30 per day (be-fore taxes). The Enterprise agency is to be found on the edge of downtown, close to the Military base. Opening hours Monday – Friday 7.30am – 6pm, Saturday 9am – 12, Sunday, 10am -2pm.
Located in the southeastern corner of the state, Cheyenne is also close to Colorado and Nebraska, at the epicenter of American Western culture. With its proximity to the Rockies, the weather is always changing, so when you rent an RV in in this area, it is best to be prepared for anything that Mother Nature can throw at you. Often described as the ‘Airbnb of the RV world’, Outdoorsy has all sorts of vehicles available, from trailer pop-ups for just over $80 to full on motorhomes at about $200 per day.
