The capital of Colorado, Denver has a long and storied history dating back to the Old West era. Many buildings and landmarks from those times remain, giving the city a unique character that is juxtaposed against many of the trappings of a modern metropolis. Beyond its own attractions, Denver is also a popular jumping-off point for skiing excursions in the nearby Rocky Mountains.

Among their standout offerings when we searched were a Ford Focus available for $337 for a week’s rental, or, for something a little bigger, there was also a 5-seat Hyundai Elantra, which you can rent for a week for just a few dollars more.
A 15-mile drive east of central Denver is Aurora, another popular Colorado tourist spot. Here, you’ll find several Hertz rental offices, each offering a wide variety of cheap hire car options.
