Pick up was fast and easy.

Got off to a rough start as we had to wait for an hour and a half to get our car after we checked in. The attendant said that the car was being cleaned and should be ready in 15 minutes. She would call our name when it was ready. We, along with others, waited and waited. The attendant would disappear unless new customers were at the counter and another person would come out every so often and call a name. Our name was never called. Finally, after over an hour, I caught the attendant before she disappeared and told her we had been waiting a long time. She asked me my name and I gave it to her. She then looked and said, "Oh, you already picked up your car!" I said obviously, we hadn't. She said so and so called your name. I didn't argue. She couldn't figure out who had gotten "our" car, which she said was a Kia Soul, a lower model than what we reserved. Finally, she gave up and said "I will just have to give you the Buick Envoy," which turned out to be a little bit better for us than the sedan we had reserved. This was good since we were going to keep it for 16 days (and ended up driving 3500 miles). When we turned the car in, the amount billed was less than I expected. The receipt showed that they didn't start charging us until 3 days after we picked it up. I don't know why they did this (no explanation), but it made the initial hassle worth it in the end.

Wanted a Ford Edge, got a Toyota 4Runner that got 15-20mpg relatively a gas hog, only redemption was it has shift on the go was nice through Sequoia NP, and radar cruise control, was nice where traffic is light on esp 2 lane US hwy's.

When we showed up at midnight to pick up our vehicle, we were informed that it was not ready because it had to be cleaned. There was only one staff member and she was working as hard as she could to clean all the cars (as there were other people waiting before us). We waited almost an hour. This was especially disappointing because obviously Alamo knew when we were landing and when our reservation began, so a car should have been ready.

Pick up and drop off was smooth and easy.The car needed GPS because the area had no cell service, so getting driving directions was difficult. The cost was also exorbitant.

Car had good handling, braking, and acceleration. Everything appeared to be functioning appropriately. The car safety technology was helpful.

I asked for a full size car, was given a compact SUV, was told that was an upgrade. Negative, the Chevy Malibu I requested has more cubic square feet over all than that compact SUV. We had a wedding party for our daughter's wedding and wanted the space, but I could barely get our luggage in this compact, much less more people with room.

It was extremely efficient. Fast pick up from the airport, fast paperwork process and fast return process. It was incredibly expensive, but there is a rental car shortage everywhere, so there wasn’t an alternative option.

Price gouging at the core of the definition. I do not recommend Kayak or Dollar in Montana.

I was unable to rate anything on the previous page. It did not work. Everything was excellent. I had never rented from Dollar before, thinking it was a lower tier company. I couldn't have been more wrong. The staff was friendly, the cars were new models and in great condition. I will definitely rent from them in the future.I can't think of anything.

7.9 Good2021 Aug 21
The shuttle was fast and efficient. We felt a bit like we had to deal a lot of upselling that made the pickup process longer than need be. However, we were grateful to receive the cars we reserved given the limited supplies across the U.S., and especially grateful to even get an upgrde on one of the vehicles.

1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 12
Terrible experience. My flight was canceled and after calling enterprise with notification that I will be late about 3 hours I was told that the branch where I was supposed to pick up the car closes 30 minutes before my arrival and I will have to wait till next morning. Unacceptable. I canceled my reservation.

we were able to pick up the car quicklyThe car itself was not good. When we asked if the car had 4 wheel drive we were told we would be fine without it without ever inquiring into where we were going-we could’ve used four wheel drive. While driving just along the highways themselves the car had difficulty maintaining speed and struggled at the slightest incline. The Bluetooth connection in the car was spotty at best; not to mention if you need to plug your phone in it wouldn’t play navigation from that phone anymore. If any of us had been traveling alone with this vehicle it would’ve been almost dangerous trying to read navigation from our phones the whole time. Having a good system for navigation on a rental car should absolutely be standard.

We did a one way rental and everything went as planned. Staff at both enterprise locations were efficient and very professional.We arrived early into Whitefish and had hoped to pick up our vehicle early but there was insufficient inventory. Not the company’s fault but some flexibility would have been ideal.

How about your company puts in bold faces lettering in the main body of the email that you need a major credit card! Not every person has them, nor carries them. And guess what, Alamo next door would’ve rented to us if they had any vehicles left. Dollar Rental in Columbia Falls gave us a bigger car, for an entire day longer, at a cheaper rate and didn’t require us to have a credit card. I’m telling everyone about my fantastic experience at Dollar Rental!
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 06
Car was not very clean and had high mileage. But the real problem was that Avis charged 517$ on top of the final invoice just 3 days after drop of without any information why and what that charge was for. The car was returned fully filled with gas and no additional damage. We have videos of the car before and after. At the end we pid over 750$ for a car for one day. What a trap.

The gentleman at the rental counter was so friendly and efficient, not to mention funny and engaging. He not only got us on our way quickly, but offered suggestions for restaurants in the areas we were going, which were great because at this time of year a lot of places were closing for the season. He gave us a 2021 Camry with low miles, and it was immaculately clean and gas efficient. Overall, a great experience.

Due to chip shortage, my daily rental was over 250/day without buying any insurance. Due to pandemic, I couldn’t postpone this vacation and had to rent. I couldn’t/can’t blame Budget for this but it does relate to my stating not used to not getting what I paid for. Budget was great in all other areas.

Best car rental companyQuick and easy to understand instructions for rentals. Very informative. Beth showed us the car we would be using, so that we wouldn’t get confused and she also offered the best choice for us, since there are some age restrictions. She also gave us unlimited mileage which was a huge bonus for us! We will be booking with Budget again soon! Thanks Beth!

Although the interior of the car was not as clean as I would have liked, I realize it's not business as usual at this time. The price for the SUV was excellent, but that was due to reserving the vehicle 11 months in advance. The ridiculously low price was honored when I arrived and pick-up and drop-off took no time at all. Again, this was in Kalispell, MT in a very small airport. After hearing horror stories of vehicle shortages at agencies, my biggest fear was there being no vehicle at all when I arrived. I phoned Thrifty at the airport 2 weeks before my trip and was assured there were plenty of SUVs.
7.9 Good2021 Jul 18
Thrilled to get a vehicle at all, but the expense for 2 days was extraordinary. A lot of confusion about whether the vehicle was at or off-airport. The reservation email sent us to town some 10 miles away for pick up which was at the airport. Some confusion about returning the vehicle and depositing the key inside at the vacant kiosk. The vehicle was clean and worked well, and almost an essential component for a visit to Kalispell and environs.

The staff was very friendly.The tires were inflated to odd levels of pressure from 28 to 40 pounds per square inch. We had to go to a station and have them inflated and deflated. It took an hour out of our trip to find a station with an air pump.

at drop off, I explained that the gas tank was FULL. After reviewing the bill before boarding my flight, I discovered that I was charged for the cost of $97 for fuel. I had to go back to the agent (behind the security) and she corrected it. I find this annoying as it is a basic component of checking out a rental car. Other attendants go over the statement LINE by LINE. Not at this station. Peculiar, With kind regards, Roger van den BerghPlease pay attention at checkout.

Very friendly staff, no line and easy rental process.I wasn't sure how to return the vehicle - had to take keys to the desk unlike other rental experiences where someone is there waiting to check you in or you leave the keys in the car. Signage would have helped as we were in a rush.

I liked the rental once I got one.The first rental not properly working, it wouldn’t start up right away, the car had several dents and scratches on the car, it also smelled like smoke. When I made the reservation counter aware, they acted as if there wasn’t a problem. Business as usual.

Top tips for renting a car at Kalispell Glacier Park Airport

  • More than ten car rental companies serve travelers at Kalispell Glacier Park International Airport (FCA). The best way to rent is to book ahead of time through KAYAK. Getting around Montana from FCA by car outshines all other forms of transportation. The chances of hopping on a bus are very slim, not to mention that the system has designated stops scheduled at an interval of 1h 30min. Also, buses are only available from 9 am to 5 pm, and do not operate on Saturdays and Sundays. For this reason, most visitors flying into the capital of Flathead County prefer getting a car rental at Kalispell Glacier Park Airport because the service is guaranteed no matter the time or day of the week.
  • When you book a vehicle from one of the Kalispell Glacier Park Airport car rental agencies, a few tips can help you save time finding your way in and out of the airport. First, make use of the signage directing you to the counters and pick-up points. Alternatively, ask the car rental associates where the cars are parked as they are always happy to help. There isn’t much vehicle flow from the airport to the small town in the morning. But you can avoid traffic caused by public buses at 9 am if you pick up your rental car earlier. Return the car before 4 pm to evade the evening traffic jam.
  • The return areas for car rentals at Kalispell Glacier Park Airport are located a few yards from the terminal. Some of the returns are located at 4170 Us Hwy 2 East within the airport. Normally, you should return the car at the same parking lot that you picked it up from. Only one-way rentals are returned to another location other than the airport branch. Such trips often carry an additional fee. It is very important to indicate at the time of booking whether you’ll use a different drop-off location.
  • Avoid late-return fees by dropping off the vehicle within the time indicated in the rental contract. Note that each supplier has a unique opening and closing time of their offices. For instance, National’s operating hours are from 8 am to 11.30 pm. However, they provide after-hour returns. If you return the vehicle past 11.30 pm, there’s no need wait to for a customer agent so you can hand over the key and any paperwork. A drop box is conveniently located at the return area for you to place these items and leave.
  • Book your rental car at Kalispell Glacier Park Airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
