Car Rental Driving Around Western Montana

Driving Around Western Montana

If you're arriving by train or plane, renting a car once you're here makes getting around easy, especially for exploring at your own pace—pulling over when the scenery or an enticing fishing hole calls you. You'll find most major car rental companies here including Alamo, Avis, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz and National. You can rent a car right at our major airports, but PLEASE PLAN AHEAD.

It's vital to book a car well in advance. Due to a nationwide shortage, it may be somewhat challenging and more expensive than normal to reserve a car—especially June through September. Here are some tips:

  • Call the rental agency's local number to ensure the most up-to-date availability, rather than referring to a website.
  • Car rental companies are giving a preference to longer rentals because they have limited staff to clean and service shorter rental windows.
  • Uber and Lyft are available at Glacier Park International Airport and Missoula Airport.
  • Many hotels have a shuttle service to get you to and from the airport, but you should confirm this with your reservation.
  • If you are unable to secure a rental car, try Turo carsharing service.

Fortunes, Legends and Ghosts. The Rest Is History.

Southwest Montana’s ghost towns and historic places tell tales of lingering souls. Whether you are a thrill seeker, ghost hunter or history buff, you’ll love these spooky sites and tours.

Recreate Responsibly Plan Ahead, Play it Safe, and Leave No Trace.
