Colorado covers most of the southern Rocky Mountains and the North-Eastern region of the Colorado Plateau, as well as the western area of the Great Plains. The state's capital is Denver, which is also Colorado's most populated city. The area's main port of entry is Denver International Airport which is the 13th busiest in the world. Colorado is well known for its beautiful landscape of mountains, forests, rivers and desert. Hiring a car in Colorado means that you can visit some of the state's most popular attractions which include Denver Art Museum and Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
Rent a car in Colorado and drive to the southwest of Colorado Springs to the side of Cheyenne Mountain where you will find Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. A favourite attraction among both children and adults, visitors are able to explore nearly 150 acres of mountain terrain which houses around 800 animals. Take part in a fascinating tour where you can learn all about the animals including more than 30 endangered species which live here. Head out of Colorado Springs to Garden of the Gods Park where you can experience dramatic views over the area. The park is a registered National Natural Landmark and it is one of Colorado's most photographed destinations.
If you are driving in Colorado in winter it is important to remember that the weather is prone to sudden changes; varying from sunny to snowing in a matter of hours. Before you set out sightseeing it is wise to check for any road closures which could delay your journey or cancel it altogether. If your driving licence is not written in English or if it does not have a photograph, it is a good idea to apply for an International Drivers Permit as driving licences are used as the main form of identification here.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
