Wow - I'm starting to plan a couple of trips to Colorado from Atlanta for the winter and the SUV rental prices are making it a no-go! The cheapest rates I can find for an SUV is through Costco and it's in the MID-$800's for 5 days! I have felt uncomfortable paying $300-$400 in the past couple of seasons but $800+ is just not possible.
Is something going on within the travel industry in Colorado / Denver? Looking back through my receipts from previous trips it looks like we were paying $200 - $300 up until 2014 when they went in to the $300's. Now in the $800's? Even sedans are pretty expensive - all in the $200's.
