Nice
Pros: Counter service was quick and efficient, car was clean and low-mileage, drop-off was a snap.
Cons: Price for a one day rental was higher than larger markets, but Missoula is a small town with less competitive market, so not unexpected.

Pros: When we arrived at the airport we called the front desk and they immediately sent someone to pick us up since the location is 10 minutes away. The gentleman that picked us up was very pleasant and helpful. He gave us some great recommendations for the area when we told him our plans. Highly recommend based on the customer service we experienced.

Good rental
Pros: Nice vehicle, enough space for 4 people and a lot of luggage. Fairly easy pick up but no one was in the parking lot when the vehicle was dropped off. Smaller airport so that might make sense. Staff was friendly and the vehicle was very clean.
Cons: Information on filling the vehicle up with gas - there was a $7.99 fill up fee but the gas was cheaper per gallon if filled by Budget. I was told that it would not make sense to fill the vehicle if it had less than 1/4 of a tank but when you take into account the fill up fee, you would have to use over 26 gallons of gas before it would be worth having Budget fill it up. The vehicle I had does not hold 26 gallons of gas even if it is empty.

Very poor customer service
Pros: not much
Cons: The desk clerk in Missoula MT did not want to take the car back as had been pre-arranged and paid for. She said personnel in Denver had mad a mistake on the numbers and since that was a different fleet she couldn't deal with i & we could not leave the car there.. I told her that was not my problem, that was Budget's problem. She said she would have her supervisor handle it but I was never contacted by her supervisor. I left the car I'm Missoula as agreed

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 hire 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

How can I find car rentals near me in Missoula?

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

What type of car is recommended for driving in Missoula?

As the roads can be rough and winding in the mountainous areas, it is recommended to opt for a 4-wheel-drive car when venturing out of the city. An SUV will provide the necessary traction to face winter and dirt conditions, while still being a convenient car to drive within the city.

What's the speed limit in Missoula?

Adjusting your speed and slowing down when the weather conditions require it is essential in Missoula. 25 mph is generally permitted inside the city and among residential areas, with just 5 mph in alleys. Up to 80 mph is allowed on freeways but always check the posted signs, as some only allow 70-75 mph.

How are gas prices in Missoula?

A refill in Missoula will cost travelers about $2.70 per gallon. Look out for petrol stations like Costco or Sam’s Club for cheaper rates starting at $2.60 per gallon. If you venture out of Missoula into the mountains, always refill the car beforehand to ensure there is enough petrol in the tank to make it back safely.

Where are the best places to park in Missoula?

There are various options for parking in Missoula, from metered on-street parking to parking garages and lots. On Bank Street, parking is possible for 2 hours and costs around $1 per hour from Monday to Friday. Park Place on Front Street has the first hour free and costs around $1 per hour afterwards.
