Top tips for renting a car in Missoula

  • Nestled amidst the mountains lies Missoula, Montana, and for exploring the scenic surroundings and everything the city has to offer, a car is the best choice. Rent a vehicle when visiting the city with its many surrounding scenic routes, and do not worry about public transport, expensive cab rides, or time and geographical restrictions.
  • When flying into Missoula International Airport, head to the car rental center to pick up a vehicle right there. The airport is located outside the city, about 6 miles away, and while public transport will take up to an hour to get you to the city center, a car will be there in about 10 minutes. The agencies’ desks are located opposite the Baggage Claim area and include major brands like Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise.
  • Winter in Montana can bring lots of snow and ice onto the streets, but it is not the only hazard to look out for when driving through Missoula. Dirt tracks are commonly used by adventurous drivers to explore hidden nooks and crannies of the mountains, but remember to keep in mind the ambulance can take some time to reach remote mountainous areas, so don’t do anything unnecessarily risky. When driving in snow, adjust your speed and refrain from braking suddenly or accelerating abruptly.
  • Rush hour in Missoula is definitely not as much a hassle compared to many bigger US cities, but it still does occur. Between 7-9am and 5-7pm, the streets can be congested, and, especially when going to the airport, it is advised to plan well enough in advance (at least two hours), as the I-90 can get especially congested during peak times.
  • Book your rental car in Missoula at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Missoula are around 47% cheaper than other car types, on average
