Hertz customer service was terrible. In order to simply ask a question on the phone, they wanted to charge me 5%. Of course, it was impossible to find the answer to my question on the website.

USB in car did not work and we had no music or GPS for 1 week. Manager at location refused to give discount. I will never rent from Hertz or via Kayak again if I do not get a Credit on this rental.

Everything was Great. Fast service, nice clean car.I got a free upgrade and was told when handed the keys. It would be better to ask if the customer wants an upgrade and what type of car rather than the brand. I had a gas guzzler SUV. I could have changed it but found out when I saw the car in the lot, and didn't want to spend more time... I would have preferred an economical one.

I had reserved a car for pick up at the Montrose airport at 12 noon Saturday 3/19. I came at 1:00 and there were no cars available at all. I was told I had to wait until a car was turned in before I could have one and there were others ahead of me already waiting for cars to be turned in. This affected my vacation time and I did ask for a response of some kind but was told I would not get one.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2021
Nothing. Never got our car...Phone was off the hook and rang busy all day when trying to inform rental counter that our flight was severely delayed. Arrived to find nobody at rental counter. Called after hours person and they would not come in to give us our car. Only after 10 mins did the agent call back because she felt bad and said that she would come in to get us a car. However the airport would be close by the time she came in. Addressed these issues on the return trip at the rental counter and they denied saying their phone was busy and made nothing but excuses...
4.0 OkayJul 28 2019
Not billing me $400 to keep the rental car for an additional 15 hours of use due to a flight cancellation would've been nice.
7.6 GoodJun 26 2018
Speedy pickup/dropoffCar was available in the class I previously chose - no waiting. Big plus.Car had quite a few scrapes & alot of rock chips - as long as I'm not charged, I don't care, but there were alot. I had never driven a push-button start vehicle - it should have been obvious, but without instruction, the car pic of the parking brake and the start/stop button made me think I had to make sure the parking brake wasn't on and I was in Park and then press Start. I had to acknowledge my ignorance and ask someone, in order to learn you had to press and hold the brake while you press the start/stop button; otherwise nothing. It would be great if agents asked about familiarity with this option, to avoid delay/embarrassment.

OK Car, Cheaper than Grand JunctionConvenient location at the airport. Car pickup was within very short walking distance. Easy pickup and drop off. Although Thrifty website says that they are located off of the airport, their desk is in the airport and cars are right there. My GPS programmed for their office took me to a nonexistent place. But just go to the airport.The car had several small dings on the doors and the front passenger and back seats were rather stained in spots. But it was a good car and did the job.

Reservation was made FINE months ago! When I arrived, they had NO automobiles available for rental at all!
5.6 OkayFeb 12 2017
Price issueThe final price was higher than promised. $419 versus $368 due extra taxes and fees charged by airport authority. Reason stated was rental was made at an offsite location. However, the offsite location does not rent cars. The day before rental Enterprise called to confirm pickup. Stated the pickup would be at the airport. The clerks would not honor the rental agreement. I was not told of the extra fees and taxes until drop off.

I feel that we were completely scammed by this company. We reserved a "standard SUV" which I have done dozens of times before at other locations and when I arrived I was told sorry but this is only a two wheel drive vehicle and I would need to pay $250 more plus tax to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Since it had just snowed about 2 feet I felt I needed a 4 wheel drive vehicle so I had to pay the additional money. For a few dollars more I could have reserved a Hertz vehicle and I KNOW that they would not have done this. I am aware that this is probably a franchisee but Budget should NOT allow them to do this. Furthermore the vehicle I was given was filthy dirty and they told me I could have it washed and they would pay me back... ALSO the first vehicle they gave me had a crack in the windshield running the entire width of the windshield AND the outside of the side view mirror was completely missing

4.0 OkayJul 7 2021
We were charged an extra $100 for being half an hour early to pick up the car. The car smelled like cigarette smoke and Febreeze. The maintenance light was on with a dashboard message that said "maintenance required". We told the lady at the counter and requested a different car and her response was, "That's just for the oil change, you'll be fine. That's the only car you can take."
8.0 ExcellentJul 7 2021
Drop off was easy. A bit confusing at first though. Would have been nice to have been told the process for drop off when picking up
2.8 MediocreSep 16 2020
Staff was mildly friendly at best. we waited in line for over an hour to get our rental. The first rental we received had not been cleaned and smelled terribly of smoke. After returning to the counter we were offered another vehicle without question which was appreciated. Upon further driving of the Toyota we were provided, the breaks were absolute terrible and would cause major vibration when attempting to stop. With driving to Telluride through the mountains, the breaking situation is not ideal by any means.Vehicles need to be updated and be properly maintained. Also, in that size airport, there needs to be more staff, there is no reason to be forced to wait an hour for a rental at any airport.
2.0 MediocreJul 27 2019
Mechanical condition of the car was the only thing that was good.The car was extremely dirty but inside and outside, and the associate at the desk said that it was because my flight was late by 4 hours and they were not aware of it. Their reason was that their detailing staff went home (it was still 4pm) because they thought there were no more customers coming!
2.0 MediocreJul 11 2018
After my flight was delayed I tried to notify budget, 25 phone calls later they refuse to answer the phone. Terrible customer service. No customer service

2 hour rentalNo one at desk. Not the economy car I asked for. Don't charge me for a full tank of gas for a 60 mile drive. Had two bookings for me though first was not confirmed, just an exploration via Kayak.

Top tips for renting a car in Montrose

  • Renting a car can offer you not just a practical option, but a comfortable experience when traveling to Montrose. Located in Western Colorado, this is a city where you’ll experience scenic byways and unforgettable excursions. More so if you’re looking to get on high alpine highways or off-the-road and explore sand-stone routes inaccessible through other modes of transportation. The highlights on Montrose highways from bison and elk farms to Colorado wineries are better when you travel at your own pace, so getting a car from Montrose car rentals will be well worth it for the ultimate experience.
  • The Montrose Regional Airport has a Rental Car Counter located in the baggage claim lobby. To make the booking process seamless, you can check out car rentals in Montrose through KAYAK and reserve your car of choice before the trip. You'll find several Montrose car rentals, such as Hertz, Dollar, Avis, Enterprise, and Thrifty. Most of these car rentals also have agencies on Airport Dr, which is right outside the Montrose Regional Airport. Consider picking up your car directly from the agencies if that's the most suitable option. You may not find many car rental options in Downtown Montrose in the city. However, most of them may be willing to deliver the car to your hotel at an extra charge.
  • If there’s something you should watch out for on Montrose roads, it’s wildlife animals. More so when approaching winter, as the days get shorter and visibility can be poor during dusk and dawn. Deer are usually more distracted during this time of year, but it’s still possible to hit animals even in other seasons. Always be alert, obey traffic signs, and slow down if possible, to increase reaction time.
  • There’s minimal traffic in Montrose, CO, and even during rush hour, it doesn’t drag enough to be worried about, unless there’s ongoing construction. Still, I-70 can be quite busy if you intend to venture out of the city. Beyond that, winter roads in Montrose and Colorado as a whole can be rigorous. The snow can get as high as six inches, and the blizzards can make driving hard on inexperienced drivers, even with a 4WD, so be careful when driving.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Montrose for $58 or less
  • Book your rental car in Montrose at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Montrose are around 58% cheaper than other car types, on average
