Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Airport Car Rental

Colorado Springs Airport (COS) is the second-busiest airport in Colorado after Denver International Airport. It serves the city of Colorado Springs as well as the rest of southern Colorado. 

With many sites to see in the southern part of the state, including Pikes Peak, the town of Durango, and Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado Springs can serve as the perfect entry point for a summer vacation.  It is a much smaller airport than Denver International and much easier to get in and out of. So if planning a trip to southern Colorado, you should certainly consider flying into COS rather than Denver. 

Though most of the state’s ski resorts are more conveniently reached from Denver, two are within decent driving distance of Colorado Springs. Those are Ski Coop and Monarch Mountain, both located west of the city.

Main airlines

American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, and United Airlines are the only carriers that serve the airport.

Terminals

COS only has one terminal. Though that terminal has two concourses, only one has ever been used commercially. There are 12 gates that are in use.

Location

The airport is located roughly 10 miles southeast of downtown Colorado Springs. The drive usually takes about 20 minutes.

Car rental desks

All of the car rental agencies have desks located in the baggage claim area.

Services and facilities

Though the second-busiest airport in the state of Colorado, Colorado Springs Airport is not large. It, however, has all of the services and facilities one would expect of an airport. There is one lounge, the Mortgage Solutions Financial Premier Lounge. It is a membership-based lounge but is also available to most airline program members. There is a Visitor Information Center in the baggage claim area with friendly volunteers that provide information about both the airport and the Colorado Springs Area. There is a cluster of hotels just outside the airport. Most of these provide a free shuttle service to and from the airport. This is useful for an early morning flight as you could return your rental car the night before and use the shuttle to get to and from the airport. There is a taproom of the local Bristol Brewing Company landslide in addition to Novo Coffee and a marketplace. The rest of the restaurants are located airside. These include the fast-food options of Pizza Hut Express and Quiznos. There is also a full-service restaurant. With just one concourse, all travelers have access to every food and retail outlet at the airport.

Nearest gas station

If coming from either direction on I-25, the nearest gas station on the way to the airport is a Loaf ‘N Jug on Drennan Road which is right off the parkway leading to the airport. If instead, you are traveling south along CO-21 to reach the airport, there is a Conoco station just before you reach Astrozon Blvd.
