When in Denver
Take a rest
It may seem obvious but don’t forget to take a rest and change drivers on any long road trips. With lots of gorgeous scenery though, we recommend pulling over and enjoying the view for a while.
Plot your route
Driving distances between destinations in the US can be grueling and long. Before you head off be sure to take note of estimated travel times and where you’ll likely need to top up the tank.
If you’re driving through Denver during the winter, ask your rental company if they supply winter or all season tyres and the necessary winter tools (brush, ice scraper).
Mountain driving is an art of its own and involves some rules that aren’t always clear if you’re not familiar with them. Some things to remember include: yielding to cars driving uphill; watching your temperature gauge so you don’t overheat the engine (turn off the aircon when driving uphill); don’t ride your breaks on the downhills; and most importantly, keep your focus.
