10.0 ExcellentJul 19 2018
Pros: Nice car,
9.2 ExcellentMay 2 2018
Pros: Friendly pickup staff personCons: Not having unlimited mileage....promotion was gor 100 free miles....made me conscious of putting too many miles on the vehicle instead of enjoying the journey.
2.0 MediocreMar 24 2018
Cons: Cancelled immediately after booking, when I found out about the small print (charging 36 cents per mile... but, although I cancelled early, I was still charged the full amount!!!
10.0 ExcellentMar 23 2018
Pros: Very easy pick up and drop off, car was very clean and in good condition. Overall exceeded my expectations.Cons: The rental lot was difficult to access.
8.0 ExcellentJul 26 2017
Pros: "Gordon" checked us in and we found him to be pleasant / willing to answer any questions that we had. When I got to the car I noticed a rather large "ding" in the front door, passenger side, which was not noted on the initial paperwork. I brought the ding to Gordon's attention and took a photo. Without any fanfare Gordon noted the damage on our paperwork. Gordon also said he would be available during our rental period should any other needs or concerns arise. His attitude was very much appreciated! :)Cons: We did not like our experience when we returned the vehicle. The lady just had an attitude that shouted "I don't care!" No greeting.. just, "Picking up or dropping off?" No smile.. no "How was the car?" Just, "Got the keys? Want your paperwork?" So we handed in the mileage / gas tank level and were on our way.
10.0 ExcellentMay 16 2017
Pros: Fast, courteous service. Friendly staff. Wonderful clean car.
2.0 MediocreApr 16 2017
No car availableCons: No one was at the counter when we arrived. Waited 20 minutes for clerk to show up. ( she was outside walking) When she arrived there was no apology for us waiting. She then informs us they didn't even have the class of vehicle we had reserved (a large SUV) but they MIGHT get one back the following evening. We had to cancel our entire trip loosing $$$. Will not be reserving a car here again. We were charged a $10 by Alamo fee but did get the rest of money back.
9.2 ExcellentApr 9 2017
DropoffPros: Fast on the road at pickup.Cons: Drop off lot is a long way from the counter where you check out
10.0 ExcellentMar 4 2017
Alamo isn't always great, but it is in HelenaPros: Friendly Nice ride Ice scraper included Price as expectedCons: The rental parking lot needs more signage
10.0 ExcellentFeb 25 2017
Wonderful customer service in HelenaPros: The SUV we rented was clean and in great condition. Also, we had a family issue which prevented us from returning the car to Helena, we were flying out of Bozeman. I called Bozeman Alamo and they we're going to charge me $800 to change. I called Helena and they were sweet, wonderful and worked with me! Excellent customer service!!!!Cons: That the person in Bozeman had no interest in helping me and only wanted to charge me $800 for a change that was less then 20miles away!!!

Pros: Pick-up and drop off was quick and easy.
8.8 ExcellentAug 14 2019
Pros: Friendly staff...easy pickup and drop off.
8.4 ExcellentOct 23 2017
Unexpected chargePros: Car condition was fine and acquiring went smoothly.Cons: Because we only drove locally and as a means to get ourselves to the airport while our daughter at work, we used less than 75 miles. We were then charged a $15 fee for low mileage. Ridiculous as we spared the car and company wear and tear as a result so why be penalized?
6.4 GoodAug 25 2017
Wrong carPros: The folks behind the counter were incredibly kind and easy to work with. When the car I reserved wasn't available, they asked what my needs were for renting and made sure I had an alternate available.Cons: Sadly the car type I reserved wasn't available. I ended up in a larger car which wasnt terribly inconvenient but I felt like I wasn't getting what I expected.

4.4 OkayOct 5 2018
Poor experiencePros: Car was availableCons: Car was not clean, tires out of balance making 1400 mile trip like driving on washboard, no washer fluid, found in bad weather, windows and mirrors badly stained in hard water spots, difficult to use in night driving. This was second car, first car issued had bald tires...refused for safety.
9.2 ExcellentJul 10 2018
Easy check-in; needed some details consideredPros: Our vehicle was available even though we arrived late. The process for pick-up was easy and the staff person, helpful.Cons: Details in cleaning were missed, a few papers from previous renters still in the car..no windshield fluid was in the vehicle. This made for a few extra stops to clean the windshield due to the bugs!
6.0 GoodAug 12 2017
Cons: I was charged for an extra day when the receipt came.

2.0 MediocreJul 26 2020
Pros: Cahill and Silas found me a good rate and cleaned the car before giving it to me. My Ford Explorer had Sirius/XM, which was fun as I drove across the country.Cons: On a car with fewer than 2,000 miles, I was astonished to get a flat tire. Even worse, it turned out that my rental had no spare tire! No full-size, no "doughnut" size either! Roadside assistance was courteous, but it was estimated to be 4-5 hours before a new vehicle could be delivered. Instead, I drove to a nearby Sears Tire store. Still, the flat delayed my trip by 3.5 hours.
6.4 GoodJul 24 2016
Cons: I reserved an intermediate car and got a Nissan Sentra. Is that really an intermediate car? It seemed overpriced for the size and features (no satellite radio, etc). It was late at night and the parking lot was kind of far from the desk so I really didn't have an incentive to complain to the desk clerk. He told me it was a Nissan Sentra, but I'm not really familiar with many makes and models. Surprised when I get NYC area prices in Helena, MT.
5.6 OkayJul 3 2016
No one available at pick upPros: The car was fine. Slight smell of smoke :-(Cons: I waited at the counter at Helena Airport for almost half an hour before anyone showed up. I called the number on te sign at the counter No answer. I called the 800 number, spoke to a person, put on hold, disconnected by rating message. The attendant at the Avis counter went to look for the attendant, no luck. I called the 800 message again, waited, and finally the attendant showed up.
