Top tips for hiring a car in Glacier National Park

  • Tourists usually rent cars to explore Glacier National Park. After all, driving a car is the most convenient way to tour this expansive park. Luckily, finding a rental vehicle in Glacier National Park isn’t an overwhelming process, thanks to the numerous car rental dealers operating near this park. These dealers offer different makes and sizes of rental cars. Some common types of rental cars here include minivans, SUVs, pickup trucks, convertibles, luxury SUVs, and station wagons. The best rental vehicles for driving across Glacier National Park are compact vehicles, which can drive on the park’s rougher roads. SUVs are excellent and affordable, but they can’t explore the rugged terrain in the interior parts of the park. Thus, book a compact vehicle in advance if you plan to visit Glacier National Park.
  • Rental drivers have to pay an entry fee before driving to Glacier National Park. The provision is a legal requirement that has been in place since 1914. This requirement also applies to private car drivers. The fee continues to change depending on the number of people driving to the park. Anyone driving to Glacier National Park in a rental car should determine how much they should pay for the entry fee. Rental drivers should note that this fee isn’t included in their car rental expenses. They, therefore, need to budget ahead of their tour of Glacier National Park.
  • Rental car companies in Glacier National Park charge a fixed price in their final fees. However, the actual rental price doesn’t include some extra charges. Ask your car rental company whether they charge extras beyond the final car rental price. Most car rental companies in Glacier National Park require drivers to pay for GPS alongside other car accessories, yet they don’t include such accessories in their car rental fees. Please discuss with your company if they require you to pay extra money after returning the vehicle.
  • Most reputable rental dealers in Glacier National Park offer upgrades to bigger rental cars. However, car renters should worry about upgrades, especially when the dealer asks them to pay an extra fee. Ideally, dealers offer upgrades when the size of the rental car the renter booked earlier isn’t available. The dealer should cater to the upgrade charges since they are obligated to provide the client with the rental car they booked. If the car dealer asks you to pay for such costs, the dealer will violate the agreement you signed with them before booking and paying for your car.
  • Book your car hire in Glacier National Park at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
