When I initially called it sounded like they weren't going to be able to provide a large 4 WD vehicle. They said to call 72 hours out, and when I did, the second person said no problem! And got us one! Thanks....

This was the easiest rental car experience of my life. Great service from "Jason". I phoned from the airport and he picked me up in a snowstorm. Had the car running to keep it warm for me. The entire process was seamless; drop off was excellent as well. Thank you!The location of the rental place was about 8 minutes from the airport. In a perfect world, it would be AT the airport, but given how small Missoula is, and how quickly the shuttle process worked, it was a pretty minimal issue.

Rentals Cannot Leave the StateFriendly people. Once you dive into the rental agreement, everything is there.My issue is more with Kayak than it is with Dollar. Kayak Suggested Dollar using my criteria. I wanted unlimited miles, that wasnt on the agreement when I got to the counter. I wanted a rental that can leave the state....not here at this Dollar you cant. By the time I showed up at the counter, we had lost any benefit of early reservation (during a holiday weekend) and 5-10% price reduction of the competitors due to advance payment. We were forced to find another alternative with kids in tow, calling rental companies an hour before some of them close. Most rentals in Missoula charge airport fees even if they are not near the airport. There are only one or two that do not. Pretty frustrating.

When our flight arrived, the car rental counters were all busy and agents assisted travelers regardless of who the rental company was. This really expedited things. The SUV that we had reserved was there for us. When we got to it, we discovered that it only had 1/2 tank of fuel and it had not been cleaned. I returned to the desk where they quickly changed us to an upgraded SUV at no additional charge. The situation cold not have been handled any better. We were very pleased with our experience with Alamo and the rental desk at the Missoula airport.

Had to wait an hour because the car wasn't ready even though we had a reservation. Lines were unorganized and people were butting in line. When we finally got the car and left, we had received a call to come back because the paperwork was wrong. Finally got it straightened out. Did receive a discount at the end of the trip. That was appreciated.

Didn't have the car I requested.Went to pick up the premium SUV I had reserved and they said they didn't have it but told me I could go stand in another line for another car company and that they would help me. The only thing this other company had was a smaller SUV. My family of 5 on a vacation did not want to have to be stuffed in a small SUV. Both companies acted nonchalant and told me that was the only thing they had....That is not right! It came out in our conversation that we were to head North that night, and someone said that National might have one at Columbia Falls. We had to ask if they would call and check on it! We had to drive 2 hours in a small SUV and go to the airport in Columbia Falls to pick up the SUV. NOT GOOD COSTUMER SERVICE!!!

Fast and FriendlySince we were arriving very late at night I understand that working in a customer service position can be difficult, the agent that check us out the vehicle was quick and courteous dispite the time of night. The vehicle was very clean and ready for us to leave with.Due to the small nature of the airport the rental car lot is small and when you are trying to back a pickup truck out and not hit the other cars it can be a little difficult, same is true with returning vehicles.

Generally goodPick up was smooth in Missoula. They didn't mind that I dropped the car at the wrong San Francisco location.The San Francisco location off third street is confusing to find. There was a pre-existing chip in the wind screen (at least it was logged).

issues with incorrect billing required repeated phone calls to both the rental desk in Missoula and National customer service to resolve. Do NOT use the key drop off.

We had a confirmed reservation and arrived in Missoula to be told they had no cars. Give that we needed the car in the morning to get to Bozeman and there were no cabs available in Missoula we were put in quite a challenging situation. The Avis team member was unfriendly and boldly stated that not only was there no car, he had no idea how the reservation got through and certainly it shouldn’t have been allowed for a different drop off destination. Have had several tough times with Avis so will not bother with them in the future.

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

Good rentalNice 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.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.
