Pros: The gentleman at Bozeman, WY Hertz was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I was extremely pleased with the caliber of car provided to me for the "Manager's Special" that we had selected during the reservation process. Some of the other reviews reflect a company that does not care - we did notCons: Nothing could have been better. The rental process was swift and accurate, with no surprises. The car was brand new and ran perfectly for the 1100 miles we drove. What a great experience with zero flaws on the part of Hertz.

6.0 Good14 Jun 2021
Pros: It felt very strange just leaving the car with the keys in the lot and not getting a receipt for it. It was certainly easy but felt a little Uncomfortable about itCons: The car was really bottom of the line, the seats weren’t very comfortable and the pickup was terrible, very scary getting on the highway. But ultimately it got us where we needed to go and we were happy about that
6.0 Good1 Jun 2021
Cons: Price is ridiculous. The price is more by far than a monthly purchase payment. The charge of $15.00 a day to add a non spousal driver is just money grabbing.
10.0 Excellent2 May 2021
Pros: Everything was super easy when dealing with the people in Belgrade. It was quick, easy and the vehicle was clean.Cons: When I called the night prior to arrival the person I spoke to was not very helpful.

Pros: People were great, car was great.Cons: I checked the car in 48 hours ago, they couldn't give me a receipt, said they would email it to me. Still haven't received the receipt.
6.0 Good15 Dec 2020
Cons: NEVER allow a rental place to give you a Chevy Malibu (front wheel drive, four cylinder, “full size” car) if there is any precipitation in the forecast. The back-end of the car “floated” and felt like we would lose control at any moment while driving on cleared roads (tire path) with snow/ice on the edge of lanes - or even clear roads at times - when going more than 40 mph. Perhaps it was that particular car rather than every Chevy Malibu but we will never again make the drive from Bozeman to Great Falls in anything other than an all-wheel drive unless it’s summer. Rental companies in northern cities should know better/caution renters regarding this car. I’ve never been more afraid in a vehicle, even though my husband is a superb driver. I hope this review can save someone the headaches and stress we had. I truly believe if I had driven, we would have wrecked due to the car’s handling.

2.0 Mediocre7 Sep 2020
Pros: I got a call before I even left home airport that there was not a car available for me due to overbooking. So I didn’t like anything about the experience. It was expensive to Uber. And not available at the times i needed. Manager offered to pay for some Uber trips. Really wrecked this trip. No other cars were available for less than $599/day.Cons: They could have had a car for me since I made a reservation and counted on it. They should have gotten a car from competitor and paid for the difference in price.
7.2 Good26 Aug 2020

8.0 Excellent27 Feb 2021
Cons: I gave it a poor rating only because it is almost impossible to speak to a real person after making the reservation and picking up the car. I ran not an issue with the car and was in hold forever trying to get in touch with roadside assistance and a budget representative. When I finally did get in touch with roadside assistance I was told I would have to wait 2 hours for service. So instead I called AAA and had service in 15 minutes.
10.0 Excellent27 Feb 2021
Cons: The price was more than I’d like, but the vehicle I was given was perfect.
4.0 Okay16 Feb 2021
Pros: I didn't break down.Cons: Budget rent a car could (and should) have had the oil checked and taken care of before I rented the car so that I didn't get the constant annoying alert that the car needed oil maintenance. Also I could have been directed to the proper place when picking up my car. I was directed to the wrong car slot, and it took a long time to find the car.
5.6 Okay17 Oct 2020
Cons: The return in Jackson was a disaster. “Off-site” return should actually state “downtown Jackson” as the return location is at least 20 min from the Jackson airport, and should not be considered an airport (JAC) return. It’s very misleading to first timers and I almost missed my flight. The staff were completely unprofessional in Jackson, on cellphone and no help whatsoever when information about the shuttle was needed. Completely ignorant.
8.4 Excellent22 Sep 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The car was clean and comfortable.Cons: The car's license plates were expired, and thankfully we did not get pulled over for that. Also, I was told I could drop off the vehicle in Whitefish, MT at the train depot, but they were no longer in business there. So, I ended up dropping it off at the airport in Kalispell, MT.

8.0 Excellent9 Mar 2017
Cons: Dollars cars are quite far away for both pick up and drop off. I needed to upgrade (pay more) to get a 4x4 because all of their cars do not have m+s or winter tires despite many are rented at the Bozeman airport for trips into the mtns for skiing, snowmobiling and other winter sports.

Concerned they would charge more!Pros: In trying to make up for not having our premium SUV which I reserved, National charged us for the small SUV.Cons: We had such a terrible experience when we picked up a vehicle and then had to drive 2 hours to get what we had originally reserved that I was afraid they would charge us more when we turned in the vehicle but to my surprise, they did not charge us more. Drop off went well.
6.4 Good24 Aug 2018
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off.Cons: We did not get the car we asked for. We were told we were going to get a super-cab (four full doors), but we got a crew cab. Very small for our bags/my daughter. I specifically asked for the larger car when I made the reservation. When I told the desk at National that it was too small, they told me I could get a Toyota Sequoia for %150 ADDITIONAL a day. Unbelievable.

Cons: Car was great. Drop off was easy. Pick up was a disaster! We waited over an hour and half in a massive line to get the car. Thrifty obviously has some MAJOR staffing issues. Allowing "gold members" to cut a line of over 100 people is absolutely shameful.

Minivan for a jeepCons: Flew into Bozeman, paid for the upgrade for Jeep Cherokee or equivalent knowing we were going into Yellowstone national park. They gave us a Dodge Journey which is a minivan without the sliding door. Since the park got nearly 1' of snow we almost got stuck several time in pull offs or in parking lots because it had almost no ground clearance. That vehicle is not the equivalent of a jeep. Not good...
10.0 Excellent30 Oct 2017

Top tips for renting a car in Bozeman

  • Visit Bozeman and benefit from the freedom and flexibility a hire car can give you during your stay. Apart from the many attractions within the city borders, such as the Museum of the Rockies, there are also many national parks and green spaces that are best reached by car. About 90 miles to the south lies Yellowstone National Park, which is an hour and 40-minute drive from Bozeman city and is just waiting to be explored.
  • Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is over 10 miles from the city center, so the most convenient way to get out and about is by renting a vehicle directly at one of the airport agencies. Situated right next to the baggage claim area, the airport sports eight major agencies, including Hertz, Avis, and National. There are also some off-site hire agencies, some of which offer shuttle services from the airport to the hire center.
  • The winters in Bozeman, Montana can be very cold and bring lots of snow. Knowing how to handle a car in winter conditions is important when visiting the city in the cold months. First of all, make sure to have the hire car equipped properly and also rent snow chains, if necessary (they may only be used when there is ice or snow on the roads).
  • Another important aspect of driving in cold conditions is to adjust your speed. Bozeman drivers are generally known to be patient and friendly and will usually also adjust their speed when the roads are slippery. Sudden braking or accelerating should be avoided and headlights should always be turned on – even during the day – so that other drivers can spot your car better in the snow flurries.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Bozeman for £38 or less
  • Book your car hire in Bozeman at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hires in Bozeman are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car rentals in Bozeman

  • Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car hire company in Bozeman is Hertz (8.6, 247 reviews).

  • The average price of fuel in Bozeman is £2.53 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between £30 and £40, depending on the car size.

  • Intermediate (Ford Escape or similar) is the most frequently booked car hire type in Bozeman.

  • A Economy car hire in Bozeman costs £38 per day, on average.

  • A Standard car hire in Bozeman costs £38 per day, on average.

  • In Bozeman, cars are most frequently hired at Alamo 5 Gallatin Field Rd (9 miles from city centre).

  • On average hiring a car in Bozeman costs £321 per week (£46 per day).

  • On average a car hire in Bozeman costs £1,375 per month (£46 per day).

  • Especially when visiting in the cold winter months, opting for a 4-wheel drive car is a wise decision to make. An SUV can whizz in and out of the city with ease and still provide the essential road grip for safety. For more space, choose a minivan where bigger families have plenty of space for themselves and any additional luggage.

  • In residential areas, 25-30 mph is permitted, on undivided rural roads up to 70 mph, and up to 80 mph on freeways. However, drivers should always look out for posted signs and adhere to them. It is also important to drive according to weather and road conditions and to slow down considerably when necessary.

  • The average petrol price in Bozeman is around $3.00 per gallon. Petrolstations like Costco, Conoco, or Exxon can have rates as low as $2.70, so always find an affordable petrol station well ahead of time. Credit cards are usually accepted everywhere and petrol stations around the airport tend to be more expensive.

  • Parking in Bozeman is usually a pleasant experience compared to many other US cities. On-street parking is free for the first two hours and metered afterwards. Parking in most garages is also free for two hours, including the Bridger Park Downtown Garage and the off-street parking lots, Rouse Lot and Black Lot. Also note that cars parked on the street have to be moved every 48 hours.
