Every year, my wife and I make at least six visits to Vail to see our grandchildren. When travelling from Denver to Vail, we ALWAYS employ a intermountain express . They are consistently trustworthy and reasonable. Anyone and everyone should use the intermountain express , in my opinion.
Absolutely AMAZING This past weekend, my family visited a ski resort, so I set for a luxury mountain limousine service to pick them up in Vail and take them there. They were accurate! The dialogue was excellent! As they had previously promised, they called to discuss the pickup location and to confirm their arrival. My family's first experience travelling with luxury mountain limousine service was made incredibly easy and worry-free by the fact that they arrived exactly on time. For dependability and  peace of mind. Not to mention expense! In the future, I wouldn't think twice about using their services again. I appreciate it very much!

We recently used InterMountain Express for transfers between Denver, Aspen and Vail. They provided good, prompt, reliable service with nice cars and good communication. We had positive encounters. The drivers are very kind and well-versed in the area. Large, spotless, comfortable cars with DVD players were available. Would advise."

To go from keystone to Vail, I use this company. I had my family with me on the trip. The SUV was excellent and on time. The driver was extremely friendly and courteous. They make two calls on the way back, once the day before, to confirm the pick-up for the return. The return driver to keystone was also quite kind and courteous. Both SUVs were immaculate and attractive. I'm sure to use them again when I return to Vail.
