“Repeat satisfied customer”

“I have used Carrentals a number of times and found the process very easy. I haven't experienced any problems with the rentals so haven't used any complaints process. I would like more information about 4WD and AWD as we need these for winter travel in mountainous areas, but so far this hasn't been a problem. Carrentals prices have been competitive as I book early. And the cancellation policy is good to have in reserve even though I haven't had to trigger that. I will continue using them.”

Salt Lake City Guide


Salt Lake City is a lovely, hassle-free city that is uniquely sandwiched between a briny inland sea and a snowcapped range of mountains. Famous for its Mormon heritage, it is also a great place for skiers, hikers, mountain bikers and just about anyone who enjoys the robustness of outdoor pursuits. With this sporting pedigree, the city was an obvious choice to host the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Explore Salt Lake City

In the heart of the old Mormon city is Temple Square where you’ll find the Temple, the Tabernacle and the Assembly Hall. You are not allowed enter the Temple (unless you are Mormon) but you can hear some amazing organ concerts in the Tabernacle and the Assembly Hall. The Museum of Church History and Art nearby is also worth a visit. Even if you're not that interested in the Church of Latter-day Saints, it's worth visiting Temple Square for the architecture alone.

On the east side of the city is Trolley Square, a National historic shopping centre, definitely worth a visit. There are plenty of places to eat and drink here as well as numerous entertainment venues.

Walk up Capitol Hill to experience Italian and Victorian architecture. To get here head from the city centre, up State Street, towards the Utah State Capitol. Visit the Pioneer Memorial Museum, located west of Utah State Capitol, as it gives tourists an idea of what life was like during its early days.

Further downtown the Capitol Theatre, home of Ballet West, is both an architectural and cultural gem. Equally accessible from anywhere in the city centre are Abravenel Hall (home of the Utah Opera Company) and the Delta Center.


By air
Salt Lake City International Airport is located approximately 10kms west of Salt Lake City centre. The airport offers an abundance of transport services to a number of major US cities. The airline Skywest/Delta operates flights to other locations in Utah. The UTA buses provide a regular service to and from the airport. There are also shuttle buses and taxis available from outside of the airports arrivals.

By train
Amtrak trains arrive and depart from the Rio Grande Depot found to the west of the city centre, with a daily service that stops each way on its journey between San Francisco and Chicago. UTA Trax offers a two-line local service around the city.

By bus
Greyhound Buses connect San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, Seattle and Portland. The Bus terminal can be found one block west of Temple Square. UTA buses operate throughout the city and its surrounding areas and there are services to the nearby ski resorts during the ski season.

By car
Getting to Salt Lake City by car is easy as there are two interstate highways which intersect at Salt Lake City. These are I-80 east to west and I-15 which heads north to south. There is also a loop road (I-215) that connects the eastern, western and southern edges of the city.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
