Utah Guide


Utah may have been the most rapidly growing American state in 2008, but most of this southwest state remains a sparsely populated oasis filled with five national parks, seven national monuments, and countless other breathtaking vistas. Salt Lake City and its surrounding Wasatch Front are home to about 80 per cent of Utah’s population, while nearby Park City is consistently ranked among America’s finest ski resorts. Between 2000 and 2005, no American metropolitan area grew at a faster rate than the southwest Utah city of St George.

Hiring a Vehicle

Thrifty, Hertz, and Alamo are just three of the nine different companies offering vehicles at Salt Lake City International Airport, but just as many options are available throughout Utah’s biggest city. St George offers the largest number of vehicle selections in southwest Utah. Intending travellers should compare car hire before they begin their trip so as to secure the best possible deal.

Transport Options

Salt Lake City International Airport, by far Utah’s largest, offers non-stop flights to not only more than 100 cities across North America, but even to Tokyo and Paris. The airport is expected to connect with the Salt Lake Valley’s TRAX light rail system soon. The Utah Transit Authority bus network travels throughout the Wasatch Front and makes winter runs to Park City and other ski resorts. Nonetheless, many parts of the state are still only accessible with car rental in Utah.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Utah

I-15, Utah’s longest interstate highway, passes directly through St George and Salt Lake City on its way south to California and north to the Canadian border. I-80 is the fastest way to travel between Salt Lake City and Denver, but it also extends as far west as Reno and San Francisco. I-70 may not travel through any of Utah’s cities, but offers spectacular southern Utah desert views. Most Utah cities use the same easily understandable grid system as Salt Lake City.

Not to be Missed!

The more than 100 mile long Skyline Drive ranks among the highest roads in the United States and takes drivers with their car hire in Utah past countless alpine forests and meadows on the Wasatch Plateau’s summit. Rock climbers can scale some of the world’s most colourful sandstone cliffs in southwest Utah’s Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks. Visitors can boat on Great Salt Lake, which never freezes, 12 months of the year.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Many believe early autumn is Utah’s ideal season, when the brutally hot summer desert temperatures decrease, snow has yet to appear, and the colourful autumn foliage of the Wasatch Mountains rivals that of New England. Snow is far more common than rain, and remains on the ground in most of Utah from November to March, when temperatures hover around freezing. Southwest Utah, known as Dixie, experiences hotter summers (with temperatures of up to 38°C) and has far less snow than the rest of the state.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk 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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
