Pros: The Chevy Cruise fit my needs...would have liked a hybrid engine. Picked up in Boseman on Tuesday morning. Arranged to drop car off at Great Falls. Seemed to pressure on use of Hertz insurance rather than use my own.
Cons: With one day early check out on September 30 I would have liked an immediate downward adjustment for the three days of use. Can you follow up on this for me?

Great Cars
Pros: When we travel to Bozeman in the winter it is a must to have a All Wheel drive vehicle but to get one with heated seats, Awesome! We were pleasantly surprise when pickup the car that it was a new car, very clean and the counter service excellent.

Theft of deposit
Cons: I prepaid the booking then changed it by 2 hours but have not had this creditted to my final bill and so have been massively doubled/overcharged. I dont know whether its Hertz or you who are the problem. I was told it would all be fixed by the agent but this hasnt happenned. As a result I would not recommend Hertz .... the opposite....and am not sure about you guys.

Cons: The car had low tire pressure in one wheel. I had to go back to the desk about this and they suggested that it was due to the cold (temos were well below freezing) However this dd not explain one wheel being much lower than the rest. Had to fill the tire up in the morning and no more issues. I noticed they gave me a discount on the rate however

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.

Bait and switch
Cons: Specifically reserved a 4 wheel drive suv for a ski trip to Big Sky months before our trip. Enterprise called me the day before pickup to ensure we still needed the 4 wheel drive suv. Arrive to airport the next day and was told there were no more suv to rent and my only choice was a mini van or a pickup truck. We were able to get to our lodging in Big Sky, but the car sat in the driveway unable to handle the snowy roads. Spent a lot of money for a vehicle we could not use.

20 Feb 2019
Cons: Cancelled before use date. Found out that the car was off prep, I would have had to go in a taxi, or Uber to get it from the airport and they closed on Saturdays at noon, before might flight got in(never mentioned hours in the contract. I did rent from the airport office after that. Same price.

Pros: The facility had no cars available even though I had booked in advance and had a confirmation number. I was only informed of this when I called the office to confirm all was well with the rental--the day before the trip.
Cons: They could have honored the reservation and found me a car

Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Due to a flight delay, we weren't able to pick up the car until the next day. This changed the price, and the manager was very quick to adjust the price to what we had found through Kayak.

Age and wear and 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.

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.

Minivan for a jeep
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...

Cons: They rented another reservation right out from under me because I wasn't at there desk within two hours of the time I said. I ended up having to drive a uhaul to Denver instead. Poor customer service and no desire to fix it. The van they gave us had some of the worst tires I've ever seen. Won't ever rent with thrifty again.

Pickup and drop off challenges but still good valu
Pros: The price for full size rental
Cons: Had to wait 40 minutes for a car to be available. Return location in rental return not well marked. Asked some one from another company where the thrifty spots were but never found a row with a sign and finally just parked in an open space. So price was worth the extra time if you have flexibly in your schedule but not if you are in a hurry.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Had no vehicle available except a 15 passenger van. Which then left me stranded at the airport. I thought that even though I reserved a "special car" it would actually be a car not a ridiculously large van that is in no way appropriate for my needs. It should have been clarified that that was a possibility when I reserved the vehicle online. Overall very poorly disappointed.

It was a horror show
Pros: Nothing!
Cons: I got to the rental counter and was informed the only car available was a 15 passenger van and the was nothing they could do - take it or leave it. The rental agent was fine - she felt awful. I declined and walked next door to Enterprise and rented a more suitable car though it ended up costing me an extra $150'or so for the rental

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.

Top tips for renting a car in Bozeman

  • Visit Bozeman and benefit from the freedom and flexibility a rental 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 rental agencies, some of which offer shuttle services from the airport to the rental 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 rental 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 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

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. 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.

What's the speed limit in Bozeman?

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.

How are gas prices in Bozeman?

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

Where are the best places to park in Bozeman?

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.
