Rental car on the I 70

Hi, we are driving west on the I 70 from Denver to Utah and need to get there quickly in a hertz rental car.

I have read advice here about other interstates and the toll charges being elevated by rental companies and just to avoid the toll roads to prevent the rental companies extorting large sums for toll use.

However I can’t see an easy alternative route for us. Do we just suck it up? Can we buy our own fob and disconnect the rental cars pass?

Any advice gratefully received and thanks in advance .

There are no tolls on 70. You take Pena Drive from the airport to 70 and will have no tolls.

There is a toll lane on eastbound I-70 but that will not affect your drive.

Maps.google.com

Check the box “Avoid toll roads”

It changes your route zero.
