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 $36 or less
  • Book your rental car in Boise at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Boise are around 24% more expensive than airport locations on average
