I tried to call a number of times to extend my rental and it took 8 calls to talk with someone who could help me. She was a great help, but it was frustrating not getting through or talking to people who couldn't help me.

the staff at the counter was very helpful. we called 5 times before we arrived a day late only to be told there would be no car; they would not hold our car even if we paid for the day lost in advance. I sure I will not use them again. Finally reached a american person who helped, saved the car.Someone who cared about our problem.

Easy and quickThe rental was so easy! We were tired and just wanted to hit the road. Thankfully the process was quick and problem free.The internet said a midsize car was available but when we got to the airport they were out. After a bit of switching around we rented a Kia Sedona van which ended up being a blessing!

Dop off went smoothly. Park the car, record the gas and mileage and bring in the keys.The back seat drivers were overly vocal. It is hopeful that and "app" can be developed to deal with this problem for the drivers doing the work.

There was plenty of staff, standing around.There was a major storm that removed all cars from the rental pool. While Alamo is not responsible for an act of God, I did feel that they could have been more proactive in finding me an alternative rental (example- have called other companies locally to check availability.

Don't sneeze or it will cost you!Original cost.I flew in at midnight and didn't think it was possible to pick up a rental car at that hour, so I booked it to be picked up the next morning. I then got back on your site and found out that I could get a car at midnight and that it would only add about $14. That's where the problem started. I was told that I would have to make the change through Hertz. When I contacted them they told me it would add $80.

Pickup and dropoff were easy and convenient. Initial SUV was too small and we had to upgrade. The price was reasonable and the process was quick. The car was clean and comfortable and reliable.The counter agent was less than friendly.

Never AgainThe front office person was very friendly.I rented an intermediate-sized car, and it didn't come with cruise. I can understand a compact or economy not having cruise, but an intermediate should. Also, the car was a bit run down with over 30K miles, hail damage, AND dinner other body dings.

Money!!!The customer service on both ends was good.When someone is renting a one day, one way rental, 750 miles, in the mountain states, dead of winter, please don't give them the worst car you have, just because you don't want to loose a good local rental car! My 400 dollars for 24 hours should go a little further than that. That is straight up bad business and greed!
7.6 Good9 Apr 2016
It was uncomfortable to not have someone check the car back in at the airport, had to just park it and leave, and no one at the counter. Damage could have occurred in the parking lot after I left, and I could have been held responsible. Other than that, a satifactory experience.

Car hire excess insurance in Billings

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Billings car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Billings.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Billings car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Billings

  • Surrounded by some of the most breath-taking nature parks, Billings is the perfect base for fantastic hikes, adventures, but also to explore what the city has to offer, such as the Yellowstone Art Museum. The famous Yellowstone National Park is about two and a half hours away by car. Those who don’t want to drive so long can also visit Custer Gallatin National Forest, which is only a bit over an hour by car away.
  • With only an 8-minute drive from Billings Logan International Airport into the heart of Billings’ center, it makes a lot of sense to pick up the hire car directly from the airport. Internationally renowned agencies like Hertz, Enterprise, or Avis operate from the airport grounds and cars are parked in the terminal parking lot, ready to drive travelers into the city.
  • Montana is famous for its natural scenery, but driving through it comes with hidden dangers. In fall, wet leaves can cover up potholes or make roads slippery, and wildlife is known to regularly run across roads. In winter, roads can be icy and blizzards are regular companions, too. It is recommended to carry an emergency kit in the car with a flashlight, blanket, and thermos flask, in case you get stuck on the road and need to wait a while until being picked up.
  • Compared to major cities, rush hour is not so bad in Billings, but still avoid driving between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 7 pm, as roads are most congested during these times. In the wintertime, also bear and in mind that streets become narrower as the snow is piled up on either side of the road. Venture into intersections slowly and attentively, as you may not see oncoming cars so easily in the snow.

Check petrol stations like Sam’s Club or Costco for better rates and start looking for a station well in advance to be able to choose the cheapest one. When driving out of the city to a nature park, it is important to refill the tank beforehand since petrol stations become less frequent outside city limits.

There is metered and marked on-street parking in Billings available as well. Usually there is a time limit of 2 hours and rates are around $0.75 per hour.
