KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bozeman

  • Bozeman is a fast-growing city, increasing its population of road users. Avoid being stuck on the road for hours by getting on the road during rush hours. The rush times start at 6:30 am to 10:30 am, with the peak morning rush being between 7:30 am and 8 am. The evening rush hour kicks in from 4:30 pm to 7 pm. The most congested roads in Bozeman are Huffine Lane, Jackrabbit Lane, and N. 19th Avenue. In downtown Bozeman, the worst congestion is on Main Street. If you’re in town during the summer, the road to Hyalite Reservoir is always congested, so visit the attraction during other periods.
  • Are you accessing the city by road instead of flying in? If so, you don’t need to travel to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport to acquire cheap car rentals in Bozeman. Several rental providers also have rental offices in downtown Bozeman. Enterprise and NewCar Rental have downtown locations. The former has offices along W. Babcock Street, while the latter is on N 7th Avenue. Downtown locations provide all types of vehicles, including four-wheel drives to help you tackle the snowy roads during winter.
  • Trucks compose almost half the total vehicles on Bozeman roads. Be extra careful while driving, especially a few hours before rush hour, from around noon to 3 pm. Watch out for trucks while driving Bozeman car rentals. Slow down and leave enough space between you and the truck ahead. This will avoid a dangerous situation such as getting your vehicle stuck under the truck. If you must overtake, ensure you can clearly see the road ahead and overtake sensibly and quickly. Moreover, avoid cutting in front of trucks on a highway or near traffic lights. If a truck is overtaking your vehicle, avoid speeding. Do not drive right at the center line of the road if there are many trucks around. Avoid operating a handheld device while driving, as this can make you lose control of your vehicle.
  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Bozeman for C$ 97 or less
  • Book your rental car in Bozeman at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Bozeman are around 26% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Bozeman are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Bozeman 
BertiFeb. 2024
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

That there are two places to rent. To rent from the airport, choose the Belgrade office.

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.

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...
