I just returned a dodge durango. I picked it up it had 3 miles on it. They must have just trucked it in from the factory.

I put 240 miles on it.

Was a good suv but for some reason hard to put fuel in. It kept shutting off the pump after a gallon. I had to go to a second station to top it off.

Friday 6/2 ES
Good selection. ES was about half full, but surprisingly there were a couple of Infiniti sedans, a BMW X3 and a couple Audi A3. For SUVs, there were a number of Chevy Traverse's and a couple of Grand Cherokees, plus some other smaller SUVs.

I was trying to decide what to pick on the larger side (traveling with family) when the attendant asked if there was anything she could help with. I asked if I could take the QX80 off the premium area, she and her manager said yes

DEN in my opinion treats EE's better than any other station I travel to. Can really have your pick of the litter there.

Thursday, 6/8 ES

Friend picked up around 7pm and there were at least 5 BMW X3's and Audi A3s. She took a Black X3 with around 1,000 miles on it.

Very interesting... I've never seen BMWs or Audi's in ES in Denver... and I've rented probably 50 times from that location.

Maybe they're stepping up since Hertz just started UC there. I just rented from Hertz earlier this week and got a Infinity Q60 Turbo from the PC section.

Just an update. My friend talked to the agent when she returned her car and they have alot of these cars due to the hail storm that occurred in May. Dealerships in the area had alot of damaged cars and were trying to get rid of them. I guess national got a bunch of repaired BMW and Audi.

Cars at DEN

I'm taking my stepson (who is 17 and lives in Denver) to the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas next month. I will arrive on a Monday evening (7/31.) This is my first time renting at this location, although I rent frequently from National at SEA and sometimes at DFW or IAD for business.

What kind of cars can I expect to find in the EC lineup? And is there much selection left on Monday evenings, or has everything been snapped up by business travelers on week-long trips by then?

Thanks, missed that one when searching. I've alerted the moderators that they can delete this duplicate thread.

General Natl - Week rental arriving tomorrow - will be my first with National as Emerald Exec - reserved mid sized, just to be clear - can walk up and take anything within the EA or ES area? They verify me on the way out? No counter stop, no board checking?

Specific to DEN - I'll be staying at the Westin overnight at the end of the trip - where is the National return lot compared to the airport - I.E. - return shuttle - just trying to figure out what to do with the car at the end..

I would return the car the night before as the lot is about a 10-12 min ride from the terminal. That way you can have a nice (and short) leisurely stroll to security from the Westin the next morning b

Correct, DIA is an aisle location so there's no counter stop.
