Top tips for renting a car at West Yellowstone airport

  • Car hire at West Yellowstone Airport (WYS) is very popular with visitors. The airport operates from June to September to facilitate travellers to the region and the Yellowstone National Park. This huge park has many incredible driving routes and an entire holiday can be spent within its 3,468 sq miles if you choose to camp or hire a lodge within it. There are organised tours of the park but the simplest and most enjoyable way to explore its mountains, lakes, valleys and other natural attractions is by car. The views are spectacular and you will want to spend time in unexpected areas and experience the natural surroundings slowly. This is much harder to do on public transport or organised tours that are on a schedule.
  • The park is open all year round but the roads are not. Winter weather makes driving here difficult for tourists and so the roads close during the winter months. To really explore you need to plan your visit for the late spring and summer months.
  • Returning your car to Yellowstone is straightforward and fast. As you approach the airport building you will see signs for the car hire car park. Park here and return your keys and paperwork to the car hire desks in the main terminal building. Everything is very close together. Once your car is checked you’ll be ready to go.
  • Car hire at West Yellowstone Airport operates according to incoming and departing flight schedules and they generally work office hours. There shouldn't be any need to arrive outside these hours as flights very rarely operate from the airport at night or very early in the morning.
  • Book your rental car at West Yellowstone airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at West Yellowstone airport

  • Where are the car rental companies situated at West Yellowstone Airport (WYS)?

    West Yellowstone Airport car hire is located in a single terminal building with all facilities in one place. You’ll find the car hire desks in the public Arrivals area just after Baggage Reclaim. Staff there will be able to advise on vehicle choice and driving information for Yellowstone Park and the surrounding region. The car collection point is in the car park immediately adjacent to the terminal building. There is no need for shuttle buses or other transport. It’s a short walk.

  • What are the driving conditions like at Yellowstone and what do I need to know?

    The roads in Yellowstone and the surrounding area are good quality. An SUV might make a better choice for this trip than a standard car. The roads can be very windy, particularly around the mountainous areas and the upper speed limit is 45 mph. Animals such as bison, bears, and birds of prey can often be seen on the roads so drivers need to be alert for this. Your hire car company at the airport can advise you on what to expect on your journey in the park and the region.

  • What kind of amenities are offered at West Yellowstone’s rental car centre?

    This is a very small regional airport but it does provide the airport amenities you would expect. These include staff assistance, ATMs, restaurants, waiting areas, and toilets. There is also an information desk for tips and advice around travelling within the national park, including route suggestions.

  • What type of documentation is required to rent a car at West Yellowstone Airport?

    Car hire at West Yellowstone Airport will require a valid driving licence for your country of residence as well as a credit or debit card. You’ll be required to show your passport for secondary identification. You will need to be at least 21 to hire a car here and anyone under 25 will have to pay a daily surcharge. Drivers over the age of 70 may also be subject to a daily surcharge and this is determined by each company individually.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at West Yellowstone airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from West Yellowstone airport to off-airport locations include Avis, and Budget.

My family and I were on a trip to Yellowstone but a day before our arrival we heard the news that a historic flood occurred and the park was shut down. We were already 1,000 miles into the road-trip. The employees at the Budget location were kind enough to provide a list they made of other fun things to do in the Grand Teton area, West Yellowstone, and other surrounding parks to help me and my family out. They also gave us a discount because they had so many cancellations due to the park closure. This was next level kindness that proved to be so helpful on our trip that had to be altered last minute

The rental itself was supposed to be @$1500 for the week by the time they got through nickel and diming me with all the fees and surcharges I ended up paying $1800 (I returned it with a full gas tank). Granted some of it was taxes but there were a lot of little ridiculous upcharges. Instead of knowing everything up front I felt taken advantage if. Vehicle was not even clean (dirty windows, in and out, needed a wash) when I picked it up. Tough time to rent due to supply and demand right now but could be handled better.

Cons:

The signage at West Yellowstone pickup could have been better. It was not clear that I needed to go inside the airport. Drop off at Bozeman was terrible. Clearly they have outgrown the small airport setup yet it persists.

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.

This was a nightmare experience. I received confirmation of a car at Teton Aviation for $1500. I flew into Jackson Hole airport and booked a car to take me to Teton Aviation in Idaho. Before I left the airport I called Hertz at Teton to confirm (it was a long drive) and they told me it was a private airport and under no circumstance was there a car there for me and it was a mistake (even though I had a Hertz confirmation number). I called Hertz help line and they were unable to help and said there were absolutely no cars in Jackson Hole or Teton Aviation. I was stranded there with no car for a family reunion. I will never use Hertz again and the person at Teton Aviation was nasty.
