KAYAK’s 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.
  • Book your rental car in Bozeman at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Bozeman are around -2% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Bozeman

Considering how much snowfall they get, Bozeman does a great job keeping the roads cleared.
Verified travelerJan 2024
Go slow in the winter, the roads are not salted as in the northeast and plowing takes a while to happen. Don’t be in a hurry, enjoy the abundance of parking downtown.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Skip baggage claim and get right in line to pick up your rental if your flying on a full flight or during a busy season. Then grab your bags so you don’t have to wait for over an hour in the rental line.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Bozeman was okay.... North of Bozeman was hard due to accidents and construction stopping traffic for long periods
PattyAug 2023
That there are two places to rent. To rent from the airport, choose the Belgrade office.

FAQs about renting a car in Bozeman

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bozeman?

    Especially when visiting in the cold winter months, opting for a 4-wheel drive car is a wise decision to make.

    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.

    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.

Also note that cars parked on the street have to be moved every 48 hours.

We booked a car in Poland, we traveled there 50 hours and when we arrived they didn't give the car to us. They said the reason is that we didn't have a credit card. Good that they informed us before haha. We were in a very bad position because of that.

Pros:

The car!

Cons:

Pick up. It was a hassle. I was prepaid, but they wouldn’t accept my credit card because it was under my former name. I had to go get my marriage certificate to prove it was me even though I was prepaid. They wouldn’t accept a debit card. It was very inconvenient and made me feel like a fraud when I wasn’t!

Cons:

Dropped the car off with a full tank of gas and they logged it in as empty! Hertz then charged me over $200 for a tank of gas ($9.99 a gallon!). Careless and another waste of my time.

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.

Cons:

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...

Pros:

One rental good the other not so much. Same rate for both rentals, but absolutely not equal vehicles. Ace needs to reevaluate.

Cons:

We rented two vehicles. Both were charged the same rate. One a Chevy Suburban the other a Ford Expedition. No comparison. The Ford was not equal and should never have been the same rate. The Suburban had video, auto tailgate lift and other features.

Pros:

Car had 50000 miles on it and showed the wear. We rented two vehicles and received this one the Ford Expedition. And a suburban. There was no comparison in features of the expedition and the suburban the ford was far inferior

Cons:

Not pleased with the one of the two vehicles. The ford was no where equal in features and size. Very disappointed that the cost was the same for both. Definitely not a good deal.
