Top tips for hiring a car in Boise

  • Discover everything Idaho’s capital has to offer with your own four wheels by renting a car upon your arrival in Boise. Nature lovers will get to visit the National Wildlife Refuge or the National Conservatory, which are 40 and 50 minutes away, respectively. With a hire car, you won’t have to stress about public transport schedules or squeezing onto an overflowing bus; instead, you can explore everything on your own time and pace.
  • The easiest way to start your time in Boise is by picking up a car when landing at Boise Airport, which is about 4 miles from the city center. All of the agencies (including Avis, Hertz, or Budget) are located on the first floor. The parking garage with the hire cars is just outside the baggage claim area. When driving out of the airport, follow the S Vista Avenue, which is the most direct route to Boise’s center.
  • Generally, Boise is very similar to most American cities when it comes to traffic and driving regulations. Boise drivers have a reputation for driving slower in the left lane than the right and for turning right on a red light when the intersection is free -- which is not something that visitors should mimic. Drive defensively, especially when entering an intersection, to avoid accidents.
  • Winters in Boise can bring snow and ice, and adapting your speed is very important to avoid skidding. When driving in Boise during the winter months, ensure the hire car is properly equipped and has snow chains in the trunk for when there is snow on the road (especially important when venturing out of the city). Speed must be adjusted and sudden braking or accelerating should be avoided as well. Also bear in mind that, due to plowing, the streets can be narrower after a snow.
  • Book your car hire in Boise at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Boise are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Boise?

An economy car will allow you to whizz through Boise and will make lane changes and finding a parking spot easier. When visiting during the winter, a 4-wheel drive car is recommended; families and people who need more luggage space, on the other hand, can opt for a minivan.

What's the speed limit in Boise?

When driving around school zones, the maximum speed is 20 mph, while streets with traffic lights already allow up to 60 mph. Freeway speed regulations are 65 mph in urban areas and up to 80 mph on rural freeways. Adhering to speed limit signs is required and speed must be adjusted based on weather conditions.

How are gas prices in Boise?

Refilling a tank in Boise will cost about $3.00 per gallon, but at places like Costco or Fred Meyer, prices could be as low as $2.80. Generally, Idaho is one of the more expensive states in the US when it comes to petrol prices, but drivers should have no problem finding an affordable petrol refill if they search strategically.

Where are the best places to park in Boise?

On-street parking in Boise is usually metered, so check the time restrictions and price (normally listed per hour), then feed the meter accordingly. Credit cards are accepted with most machines and street parking is divided into three zones from Premium to Value. Many on-street parking areas are restricted to 2 hours, so finding a parking garage or lot may be a good alternative, such as the Capitol and Main Garage.
