More About Flights to Vail

How Do I Book a Flight to Vail, Colorado?

When you book a flight to Vail, Colorado, you'll land at the nearby Eagle County Airport (35 miles from town) or the far away Denver International Airport (two hours away). Airlines that fly into Eagle County include United Airlines and United Express, while the list of airlines flying into Denver include Jet Blue, Icelandair, United Airlines and US Airways.

What’s the Best Way to Get to and From the Airport?

Vail has some pretty precarious roads, so although you could rent a car from the airport to your hotel, it’d probably be in your best interests to hire a professional/experienced transportation company. This is true no matter which airport you are arriving from, but it’s particularly true of the Denver Airport-to-Vail route where you’ll experience roads with passes exceeding ten-thousand-foot elevations. Shuttles from Eagle County Airport into Vail cost about $50 USD per person, while shuttles from Denver Airport into town will cost you about $85 USD. If you prefer to travel solo, a private SUV ride into Vail can cost you $200 to $400 USD from Eagle, while you’ll pay between $400 and $600 USD from Denver Airport to Vail.

Are There Any Nearby Hotels?

The Holiday Express Inn and the Comfort Inn Eagle are comfortable, affordable hotels located four miles away from Eagle County Airport. If you’re looking for hotels close the Denver Airport, some of the more popular ones include Hyatt House Denver Airport and the Best Western Plus Denver International Airport.

Does it Make Sense to Rent a Car in Vail?

You can rent a car in Vail, but parking is really expensive there. It may make more sense to rent a car for a specific day or event vs. for your entire visit.
