I’ve read and heard that Colorado is an absolutely breathtaking state. I want to visit, so I’m going to fly to Denver and rent a car. My only problem is that I’m not sure if I’ll be able to rent a car because I’m only 23 years old. In Colorado, how old do you need to be to rent a car?

Colorado is definitely a place that’s best explored via road trip. The good news for you is that you only need to be 21 years old to rent a car in Colorado.
However, most rental car companies will assess a young driver surcharge because you’re under 25 and may restrict what type of vehicle you can rent. Call the car rental company beforehand to find out what policies they have concerning young drivers.
While you can always get rental car insurance from the rental company, it’s often expensive. In addition, your car insurance typically covers rental cars, allowing you to save money on the rental.
