What Our Customers Say:
The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...2013-11-26Andrey
It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.2013-11-26Marijke Phillips

A Quick Guide to... Colorado Springs
In 1871 Colorado Springs was founded as a result of General William Jackson Palmer founding the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. It was him who planned the town and laid down how the roads would be laid out and even then he considered that it could be a resort. Thanks to the Gold Rush Colorado Springs further developed and by 1904 it was being seen as the in place for millionaires to live. It had the sort of climate that was conducive to helping people with TB and so it was further inhabited by those who needed a sanatorium.
Winter Park is a popular ski resort but Colorado Springs is not just a place that should be visited during the winter. During the summer there will be less tourists and no traffic jams. There can be just as much to do without snow unless the main point of the holiday is skiing. There are walks arranged and the slopes can still be used but on a sled and not skis.
For those who love a bit of excitement, balloon rides can be arranged with an amazing view of the entire area. Or there is always the Cozens Ranch Museum located on highway 40 for people who want to see the history of the area. This is one of the oldest ranches in the Fraser Valley and was used as a stage coach stop until 1924. Half is as it was in Victorian times and half is dedicated to local history.
