We're flying into DEN to drive to Rapid City SD, stopping destinations en route. Max time we'll spend in Denver might be last evening before leaving a week later. DEN Airport fees are crazy. Looked at Enterprise at 6900 Tower Rd. Their website said any customer who has flown into Denver airport within 24 hrs of rental is subject to all airport fees. Is this just something they have to print or do they have a way of checking?
Also we saw some posts that said some hotels with airport shuttles don't require you to stay at hotel to use shuttle. Can anyone verify this? We won't be staying at a Denver hotel upon arrival but we will the night before we leave. We'd like to take a hotel shuttle to a hotel near a car rental, get picked up and start our drive north. At the end of our trip, turn in rental car, stay at hotel that provides airport shuttle, and fly out the next morning.
All the posts we saw about off-airport rentals were several years old.
Advice/information would be welcome.
