She was quick on her feet and started to boot up another computer. Easy drop off, overall smooth process. Thanks!Cons: The inside of the vehicle could have been sprayed out/ cleaned a little better. There was caked on dirt in the trunk area and dog hair in the back seat. Overall staff was great and accommodating.
2.0 Mediocre15 Jul 2020
Cons: I’ll never use a discount car rental again. I saved $5, but my trip was canceled due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Since I saved $5 on the discounted price, I was not refundable and they would not allow me to change the rental to a future date. Horrible customer service. Stay away!

2.0 Mediocre24 Aug 2020
Pros: The rental didn’t even happen because even though we called their corporate customer service and had the pickup time changed the number they had for the local office at the Boise airport was disconnected and turns out their office closes at 5 pm and they don’t offer any sort of after hours pick up.Cons: Everything. Their customer service is non existent.
2.0 Mediocre28 Jan 2020
Cons: Information on Debit card use. There was no indication that before a 24 hour reservation a debit card could not be used. Then the rules with a debit card are absurd.

Customer no- serviceCons: The reservation was made in my name, upon arrival I wanted to switch it to my husbands name so he could be the primary driver. They wouldn’t make that happen without adding an additional $13 per day to my bill. I was willing to be taken off the contract, but no. So what started out as a good deal, turned out to be an expensive car rental.

9.6 Excellent23 Jul 2020
Pros: Courteous, friendly staff.Cons: They could have given me the rental free of charge... In all honesty, I can't think of anything to suggest for improvement but I'm somewhat easy to please.
10.0 Excellent27 May 2020
Pros: Very friendly and professional customer service.
2.0 Mediocre7 Jan 2020
Cons: Didn't get the rental. In a completely incomprehensible move, the rental agent has made it their policy to not rent their vehicles unless the rental is either paid for via credit card, or you can use a debit card, but ONLY if you have a ticket stub for a flight. Which seems like a very odd case of favoritism in favor of non-local individuals. Even more odd is the fact that apparently at non-airport locations this rental agency will allow anyone to rent a vehicle with a debit card. This is all highly frustrating when you think you have your ride planned for a trip and it falls through at the last minute due to such an odd and arbitrary detail, and I won't be using this rental agency in the future.

7.6 Good10 Sep 2019
Pros: Staff were friendly, drop off was quickCons: The Nissan Murano has a defective front radar sensor that made the cruise control inoperative. I can’t exactly fault Alamo fully, because it’s a known issue that Nissan hasn’t recalled, but then Alamo hasn’t fixed their vehicle either.

Cancelled the reservation, booked with another rental company for ~100.00 more. Poor cust service and unwillingness to work with me cost you the entire reservation.

Pros: Staff was super helpful. Did the best they could to get me a better dealCons: BEWARE! Kayak had a lower price, but read the fine print! Rental had limited miles. Ended up paying for overage. Would have gotten MUCH better deal if I had just gone through Budget directly. Very tricky Kayak! Fooled me ONCE!!
7.6 Good2 Jul 2019
Cons: Your website listed an option for Allianz insurance which I selected. Upon arrival at pick up I found out that Allianz no longer has a relationship with Budget. I felt it was necessary to to get insurance from Budget and there was no way to cancel Allianz It was a waste of money!! Seems like a scam!

UpgradePros: First time I ever rented from Avis. Everything went very well. We got a nice upgrade though the ticketing agent never said why. I would like to have known though it was a pleasant surprise when we got to the car at 1:00 a.m. Really enjoyed the Ford Edge. I will actually consider looking at them the next time I am in the market for a vehicle.Cons: Just as mentioned in the likes. Would have been nice to have been told we were getting an upgrade but I can't blame the agent as it was 1:00 a.m. and we were all tired.

Misleading charge for gasPros: Nice people, clean car, easy pick-upCons: I declined all of the gas options and returned the car completely full, filling it at the station right there at the airport. Nonetheless, they charged me $13.99 for gas without telling me. I noticed when I reviewed the receipt while sitting at the gate for my flight. I was so made I went out through security and initially they said I needed to produce a gas receipt, which was the first I'd heard of it. Eventually they relented and took the charge off. The guy at the desk was great but the policy from Avis is mean-spirited and another example of customer-unfriendliness.
9.2 Excellent30 Aug 2016
Check CleaningPros: We loved the car, the ease of transport and the overall cost of the car. The owner was great at helping with the rental process.Cons: We thought the car could have been cleaned a little better. The inside of the car looked as if it hadn't been vacuumed.

Top tips for renting a car in Boise

  • Discover everything Idaho’s capital has to offer with your own four wheels by renting a car upon your arrival in Boise. Nature lovers will get to visit the National Wildlife Refuge or the National Conservatory, which are 40 and 50 minutes away, respectively. With a hire car, you won’t have to stress about public transport schedules or squeezing onto an overflowing bus; instead, you can explore everything on your own time and pace.
  • The easiest way to start your time in Boise is by picking up a car when landing at Boise Airport, which is about 4 miles from the city center. All of the agencies (including Avis, Hertz, or Budget) are located on the first floor. The parking garage with the hire cars is just outside the baggage claim area. When driving out of the airport, follow the S Vista Avenue, which is the most direct route to Boise’s center.
  • Generally, Boise is very similar to most American cities when it comes to traffic and driving regulations. Boise drivers have a reputation for driving slower in the left lane than the right and for turning right on a red light when the intersection is free -- which is not something that visitors should mimic. Drive defensively, especially when entering an intersection, to avoid accidents.
  • Winters in Boise can bring snow and ice, and adapting your speed is very important to avoid skidding. When driving in Boise during the winter months, ensure the hire car is properly equipped and has snow chains in the trunk for when there is snow on the road (especially important when venturing out of the city). Speed must be adjusted and sudden braking or accelerating should be avoided as well. Also bear in mind that, due to plowing, the streets can be narrower after a snow.
  • Book your rental car in Boise at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Boise are around 34% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Boise

  • Economy (Chevrolet Spark or similar) is the most frequently booked rental car type in Boise.

  • In the past 72 hours, the cheapest rental cars were found at Avis ($62/day), Budget ($75/day) and Alamo ($86/day).

  • Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car rental companies in Boise are Enterprise (8.9, 241 reviews), Hertz (8.9, 99 reviews), and Alamo (8.6, 77 reviews).

  • In the last 72 hours the cheapest hire car price was found at Avis 3201 Airport Way 83705 (5 kilometres from the city centre).

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • A Economy car rental in Boise costs $53 per day, on average.

  • A Intermediate car rental in Boise costs $58 per day, on average.

  • A Compact car rental in Boise costs $47 per day, on average.

  • An economy car will allow you to whizz through Boise and will make lane changes and finding a parking spot easier. When visiting during the winter, a 4-wheel drive car is recommended; families and people who need more luggage space, on the other hand, can opt for a minivan.

  • When driving around school zones, the maximum speed is 20 mph, while streets with traffic lights already allow up to 60 mph. Freeway speed regulations are 65 mph in urban areas and up to 80 mph on rural freeways. Adhering to speed limit signs is required and speed must be adjusted based on weather conditions.

  • Refilling a tank in Boise will cost about $3.00 per gallon, but at places like Costco or Fred Meyer, prices could be as low as $2.80. Generally, Idaho is one of the more expensive states in the US when it comes to petrol prices, but drivers should have no problem finding an affordable petrol refill if they search strategically.

  • On-street parking in Boise is usually metered, so check the time restrictions and price (normally listed per hour), then feed the meter accordingly. Credit cards are accepted with most machines and street parking is divided into three zones from Premium to Value. Many on-street parking areas are restricted to 2 hours, so finding a parking garage or lot may be a good alternative, such as the Capitol and Main Garage.
