Cons:

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.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and drop off was easy. Agent even asked if they could have done something to make my rental better. Great Alamo team in Kalispell at FCA.

KAYAK

Pros:

Yes the staff was friendly enough, though the clerk at pickup was not very well trained. Pickup took far too long...as though they were not ready for me even though I had pre-registered.

Cons:

The car was out of California with summer highway tires...not suitable for winter driving in Montana where we have snow and ice. A car with these kind of tires should never be rented in Montana in the winter. The low-tire warning light was on...2 tires were under inflated. This should have been fixed before renting the car. The wiper blades needed changing for they would not clear the windshield adequately.

Pros:

Quick 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!

Pros:

The service was incredible. They sent a shuttle on time to pick us up without me having to do anything but make the reservation. They were super friendly and made us feel welcome. A real nice surprise for a rental company!

Cons:

Nothing on their end. I was unsure how it'd work with the shuttle and you could tell people that they'll show up just for you based on your time input upon reservation. This personal service is such a nice benefit that you could let the customer know upon reservation on Kayak. But the service itself was perfect!

Pros:

dollar rental was very friendly and helpful. When our flight was delayed Avis would not assure us that we would have a suv to rent.

Cons:

If someone is willing to pay for a suv even though they can't pick it up when planned, they should make sure the suv is there when they get there.

Oct. 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

This was at Glacier National Airport in Kalispell, MT. Made the reservation with Avis because the value was reasonable and they were open at 8 AM when I needed to pick up the car and make it to an appointment. Arrived at 8 AM and two people at the counter, neither of which could rent me the car because they did not work the front desk. They said the person was running late and would be in shortly. Thirty minutes later, the front desk person was still not there. Could not wait any longer so I went to Budget and they had just what I needed and for the same price. Avis lost the rental and a customer.

Cons:

The tires on my rental required filling every other day. As soon as I left the lot, the tire light came on....luckily nothing happened and they didn’t deflate completely but I still feel like this should have been looked at prior to me driving

Pros:

The Staff was friendly but didn't talk my ear off, the Vehicle was newer & in great shape. It also got decent gas mileage for a big ford expedition, about 20 MPG. Pick Up & Drop Off was a breeze & took less than 5 minutes for both.

Cons:

I thought the $1,300.00 Price Tag was Pretty Steep for 6 Days, especially since the last day I dropped the vehicle off between 7:30 & 8:00 AM.

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

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 Bergh

Cons:

Please pay attention at checkout.

Pros:

Very friendly staff, no line and easy rental process.

Cons:

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.

Pros:

Pros:

The staff was incredibly helpful and to-the-point. He did not try to sell me any add-ons or unneeded extras, and got us in and out very quickly. The car was top-notch (I don’t think a Chrysler 300 fits in the “compact” category that we paid for, but we certainly didn’t complain) and drove very well.

Cons:

We found a bit of trash in the backseat and the trunk. Nothing shocking, but we did end up cleaning out more trash than we added to the car.

The car was nice. The process of getting it was a headache. I did not pick it up through national it changed hands to two other companies before we finally figured out who I was to pick it up from which turned out to be Avis. Due to weather I had to change drop off location. It took forever to get ahold of a representative to make this change. Different ethnicities made it very difficult to understand what they were saying.

Top tips for renting a car in Kalispell

  • You must put your headlights on when visibility is less than five hundred feet due to environmental conditions. Before driving off with a cheap car rental in Kalispell, check whether the headlights have a white or amber light. If your lights are colored or tinted, you might get into trouble with the local authorities. The only exception to this is if the original manufacturer of the vehicle made it like that. Therefore, confirm with the Kalispell car rentals company. Additionally, check if the cheap car rental in Kalispell has license plate lights. They must emit a visible white light that covers up to fifty feet behind the car.
  • All passengers in the Kalispell car rental must wear seat belts, especially children. If you have a child in need of a child safety seat, be sure to request the car rental company to provide one for you. The state laws insist that kids younger than six years old and lighter than sixty pounds must be fastened to a child safety seat in the car's back seat.
  • If you plan to drive at night, watch the animals along the road that are being ridden, driven, or herded. Always maintain the designated speed limit of the roads. Alternatively, if a road does not have a speed limit, use the average speed limits, including 25mph in residential areas, 65mph for undivided roads,70mph for divided roads, and 65mph for urban highways. Always yield the right of way to animals, keep your distance from them, and reduce your speed. All accidents that lead to death or an injury must be reported to the local authorities immediately.
  • Plonked amidst various scenic lakes and beautiful national parks, renting a car in Kalispell is definitely a must to seize the chance and explore not only inner Kalispell and its casinos, but also the breathtaking surroundings encasing the city. Flathead Lake, for instance, is only a 15-minute ride away, and within a 1-3 hours’ drive you can be in the many surrounding refuges and national forests to explore the beautiful scenery of Montana.
  • The Glacier Park International Airport lies about 10 miles north of Kalispell and sports various car rental agencies on the airport grounds, including Avis, Hertz, Alamo, and National. The four agencies are located at the terminal close to the Baggage Claim area, and within approximately 20 minutes travelers can be at the center of Kalispell. There are also further off-site agencies that offer shuttle services to and from the airport.
  • Montana has particularly scenic and breathtaking scenery, but it is also a pitfall when it comes to concentrating while driving. Remember to stay focused and don’t let the wonderful surroundings distract you. Drunk driving and distracted driving are still the most common reasons why accidents are caused here. Make sure to take regular breaks, especially when driving over longer stretches of road, and change drivers regularly if possible.
  • When venturing out of Kalispell to explore the surrounding parks, make sure to adapt your speed to the winding mountain roads, especially in winter. When visiting Kalispell in winter, generally ensure that the rental car is properly equipped and has winter tires attached. Also, if necessary, rent snow chains and carry some snacks, a blanket, and a thermos with you. When driving in Kalispell, also bear in mind that, due to the piled up snow on either side, the streets will be narrower.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Kalispell for C$ 86 or less
  • Book your rental car in Kalispell at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Kalispell are around 11% cheaper than other car types, on average
