4.0 Okay6 Jul 2022
Booked an SUV. Got a Dodge Charger, offered an SUV for extra money. Bit of a haste with names on credit card, regardless of presenting multiple forms of ID. Way over priced for the value. No grace period allowed, even in a small airport market. Actually felt like the agent put me into a car no one else wanted, on the lot. Hertz has to must competition from rental companies the want the business, sorry to say…

Don't let negative reviews deter you going with Bozeman Hertz. I was expecting the worst. Surprisingly, staff were very friendly. Our car was properly reserved and ready for pickup. Car was in good maintenance and returning was simple. I recommend them for rental service.

Picking up the vehicle, I thought i was getting a 4 wheel drive. I had to upgrade. The guy said it was about $22 more per day x 5 . So I said that means it will be about another $100 dollars? He said yes. It ended up being a little more than $200 dollars from about $300 to $500. Would you be happy? Vehicle was clean, drop off ok.

The service at the counter for pick up was excellent. They unfortunately did not have the sedan we had originally booked and we were given a smaller economy car. We did receive a discount for the downgrade. The car itself was not as clean or new as the majority of rentals we have received in the past but it served its purpose well.

The check in process is ridiculously slow. All of the information could have already been provided online. I rented the car in subzero weather and they did not provide an ice scraper. Seriously?

The staff was very friendly and helpful even at the end of the day. Paperwork was done quickly and drop off was super simple. The only negative was that we waited in line for about 45 minutes to get ti the checkout counter and then had to wait another 40 minutes until a car was available.

Upon arrival, the Alamo desk was closed, so I was directed to the Nationwide desk. The person working the Nationwide desk was wearing an Alamo name tag. He chatted with the person before me for a while, then told him he was getting a free upgrade to a SUV. When it was my turn, he told me all that was left was cars(my reservation was for an intermediate SUV). I asked about the guy ahead of me, and the agent told me he was a really good guy. I asked if I would get a discount on my reservation for a car, and he said it doesn't work that way, but for an upcharge in cash, I could get a truck. I took the car, and when I got to the lot, there was a row of SUVs, but the attendant told me the manager at the desk was holding them for special guests. I will not be using Alamo again...

Picked up the car at night and didn’t see how filthy it was until the morning. Sensors (4) kept going off telling me that the alerts need to be serviced. Because it was so dirty inside and somewhat outside too I took it to a car wash hoping that would remove any grime blocking sensors. However it did not. I was in the mountains and didn’t have service until that evening so I called Alamo and they told me to go to Jackson Hole airport to switch cars. I picked up another car and slowly drove out of the airport then onto the highway and the hood of this car was not secure. I had to pull off onto the side of the highway to fix that. So no I’m not happy with my experience with Alamo

The staff at Enterprise Rental Car went above and beyond for me! Ava helped us when we picked up the car and was so wonderful; the car itself, however gave me a few problems, so I went back the next day to see if I could exchange it. Noah checked the inventory, but as it was a very busy weekend in Bozeman, nothing would be available until Monday, which was fine. On Monday, we were greeted by Kaylee, who exchanged the full size SUV we had been give on Thursday for a great mid-size SUV, gave me a partial refund and a free tank of gas for my trouble. I would absolutely recommend Enterprise Rental Car to any travelers, and I appreciate the care and attention to details that they provide.

Concerned they would charge more!In trying to make up for not having our premium SUV which I reserved, National charged us for the small SUV.We had such a terrible experience when we picked up a vehicle and then had to drive 2 hours to get what we had originally reserved that I was afraid they would charge us more when we turned in the vehicle but to my surprise, they did not charge us more. Drop off went well.

Easy pick up and drop off.We did not get the car we asked for. We were told we were going to get a super-cab (four full doors), but we got a crew cab. Very small for our bags/my daughter. I specifically asked for the larger car when I made the reservation. When I told the desk at National that it was too small, they told me I could get a Toyota Sequoia for %150 ADDITIONAL a day. Unbelievable.

Car was very dirty inside including wear you put your hands, the ceilings, the pillars. It was clear that No One cleaned the inside from the last rental. Cars Android Auto continually cut out, the USB seems to have a short. The price was too high for the service we received. The return was easy in Boise.

Absolutely nothingWhen I was driving away from the airport after waiting over 20 minutes in line with just one person ahead of me the car started running hot and dinging the alarms. It had to be towed back to the airport. When I asked for a refund because I was told by the tow truck company that Avis has the worst experience with cars and they tow them regularly 2-3 per week. The worker at the desk didn’t make any assurances that it would be different and I could get another bad car. So I asked for a refund. I’ve yet to receive one. Plus I used Uber everywhere I went to get around.

There were no attendants in the garage on pickup or return. I signed the release in the building before I ever saw the vehicle. I was told that it was in the garage in a marked space (number I don't remember) and I was given the key. The garage was dimly lit and I examined the car for any damage. A couple who passed by said they were going back inside because their rental car had a cracked windshield. I drove to Big Sky, MT from Belgrade (about 30 miles) on Friday and unloaded the car to dress for a wedding. When I got out of the car, I noticed scratches on the upper door frame and a dent in the upper part of the door as if someone had tried to pry it open when it was locked. Since I had not noticed this in my initial inspection and only saw it when the car was in bright sunlight. I tried several times to call Avis (it was Friday afternoon) and couldn't reach anyone in Belgrade and I was concerned that I would be charge for damages when the car had been damaged before I picked it up! Long story short, on return to the airport for my home departure three days later, there was still no one present and a sign informed me to just leave the car with the key in it!Judge for yourself!

When I picked up the car in Bozeman Mt there was a VERY long line and for a time only one agent working for both Budget and Avis. The line got even longer as I was waiting for my car. The wait for some people must have been an hour or more! When I dropped the car off in Jackson, WY there were no outside employees to tell me and other customers what to do with the car. I had to go in the terminal and at the desk they told me to just drop off the keys so it was very easy but I had no idea how to approcah it without going into the terminal.
1.9 Horrible22 Sep 2021
Absolute garbage customer service, and the car too. The touch screen randomly would stop working and there werent any buttons in the car, so for random hours, the seat would be on the warm setting, and we couldnt do much about it. We also found old maps and trash in the car under the seats which shifted out, so clearly cleaning is not high on the list either. Finally comes billing, we were given a bill 400 bucks more than the original amount and no one could explain why and basically we were told "we dont handle the billing platform, we just print what we got, please call customer service". All in all, avoid like the plague. Not worth it.

Minivan for a jeepFlew 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...

Top tips for renting a car at Bozeman Gallatin Field Airport

  • The quickest way to get to downtown Bozeman from BZN Airport is via a car rental at Bozeman Gallatin Field Airport. While the two locations are about 8 miles apart, you can easily cover the distance in about 15min if you drive yourself. Driving yourself also lets you work with your schedule, as you can travel whenever you want without worrying about catching a ride. You’ll also get to save on your time and money in the long run, especially if you’ll be in town for long.
  • A car rental at Bozeman Gallatin Field Airport trumps other transportation means available in a couple of ways. Unlike buses that travel a specific route only, you won’t have to worry about getting to the other end of town whenever you want to run errands or explore every corner of the city. Renting your car will give you an upfront cost, letting you plan your finances well, as opposed to taxis and rideshares, which can have changing or hidden fees.
  • When contemplating a car rental at BZN Airport, we recommend considering your plans and the vehicle model. For instance, you’ll want to rent an SUV or truck big enough to accommodate skis if you’ll be exploring the Montana mountains. A convertible rental can come in handy if you want to take in the fresh outdoor air during summer. Rental companies also offer luxury car rentals, which can be ideal for couples and business travelers. Another option available is the van rental that can accommodate large groups of about 12-15 people.
  • Renting a vehicle at BZN airport is a simple process since there are car rental counters on-site. That means you can step from the airplane and get behind the wheels within no time, especially if you expedite the check-in process. The car rental companies have their offices adjacent to the baggage claim at the far west side of the terminal. Once you pick your luggage, locate the specific company counter you reserved your vehicle from and head there to collect your rental contract and keys.
  • Book your rental car at Bozeman Gallatin Field Airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
