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.

Cons:

May just be a mountain thing and all cars being parked outside but car was pretty dusty.

Jan 2021

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.

Mar 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

we were able to pick up the car quickly

Cons:

The car itself was not good. When we asked if the car had 4 wheel drive we were told we would be fine without it without ever inquiring into where we were going-we could’ve used four wheel drive. While driving just along the highways themselves the car had difficulty maintaining speed and struggled at the slightest incline. The Bluetooth connection in the car was spotty at best; not to mention if you need to plug your phone in it wouldn’t play navigation from that phone anymore. If any of us had been traveling alone with this vehicle it would’ve been almost dangerous trying to read navigation from our phones the whole time. Having a good system for navigation on a rental car should absolutely be standard.

Pros:

We did a one way rental and everything went as planned. Staff at both enterprise locations were efficient and very professional.

Cons:

We arrived early into Whitefish and had hoped to pick up our vehicle early but there was insufficient inventory. Not the company’s fault but some flexibility would have been ideal.

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.

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

KAYAK

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.

The gentleman at the rental counter was so friendly and efficient, not to mention funny and engaging. He not only got us on our way quickly, but offered suggestions for restaurants in the areas we were going, which were great because at this time of year a lot of places were closing for the season. He gave us a 2021 Camry with low miles, and it was immaculately clean and gas efficient. Overall, a great experience.

Due to chip shortage, my daily rental was over 250/day without buying any insurance. Due to pandemic, I couldn’t postpone this vacation and had to rent. I couldn’t/can’t blame Budget for this but it does relate to my stating not used to not getting what I paid for. Budget was great in all other areas.

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:

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:

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.

Top tips for hiring a car in Kalispell

  • 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 hire 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 hire 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.
  • 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
