Pros: The manager of the office at 2618 W Fairview in Boise was awesome. I believe his name is Blake. He was very accommodating and friendly. No surprises.

8.4 ExcellentSep 13 2020
Pros: Alison was professional and helpful. I wish her computers were running faster! The software was taking a while to load yet she wasn’t getting frustrated. 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 MediocreJul 15 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!

Pros: Easy pick up and drop off.
2.0 MediocreJun 20 2020

5.6 OkaySep 1 2020
Pros: The young lady was at first I thought not very friendly, but she turned out to be a tad better than I originally thought!
2.0 MediocreAug 24 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 MediocreJan 28 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.

9.6 ExcellentJul 23 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 ExcellentMay 27 2020
Pros: Very friendly and professional customer service.
2.0 MediocreJan 7 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.
10.0 ExcellentDec 28 2019

6.0 GoodOct 9 2017
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.
2.0 MediocreSep 23 2017
excessive fee for cancelCons: I cancelled the rental the day before I was to get car. I was charged $85.00 for a $100.00 rental. $18.00 refund. No more Herttz for me

4.0 OkayMay 16 2021
Pros: Car was clean.Cons: Desk attendant at pick up was rude and seemed to like surprising us with fees/deposits instead of explaining things, even when we approached the desk and said good morning and waited to be called up to the desk, instead of just waltzing up and demanding service. We tried to start things off nice since it was 7am, but it was not reciprocated. My brother and I are tall/big guys, and so we try to be extra nice in order to not be scary, and so we are very concientous about our approach with people. We said 'hello' and 'how are you' to the drop off attendant. The drop off attendant said 4 words total: 'Hello,' and, 'Okay, you're good.'

2.0 MediocreFeb 28 2021
Pros: The car was clean.Cons: I was duped at the counter by being told that if I prepaid for fuel it would be less expensive. I questioned the $109 charge for my $45 rental and was led to believe that it would be reduced to the amount of fuel I used. At turn in they charged me $109 even though I only used a quarter tank of fuel (at $2.62 a gallon)? Very misleading!

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.

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 rental 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 rental 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 rental 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Boise for $40 or less
  • Book your rental car in Boise at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Boise are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • On average a rental car in Boise costs $364 per week ($52 per day).

  • On average a rental car in Boise costs $1,559 per month ($52 per day).

  • 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 gas prices, but drivers should have no problem finding an affordable gas 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.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
