KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in West Yellowstone

  • Driving in a rental car in West Yellowstone is the most enjoyable and convenient way to take in the sights.

This is one of the factors that contributed.

If you want to see more, you will not go very far by just roaming about by yourself.
  • Car rentals in West Yellowstone can be found at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. Car rental businesses such as Budget, Thrifty, and Hertz are just a few of the numerous readily accessible.

Following these guidelines should make your time behind the wheel much more pleasant.

My family and I were on a trip to Yellowstone but a day before our arrival we heard the news that a historic flood occurred and the park was shut down. We were already 1,000 miles into the road-trip. The employees at the Budget location were kind enough to provide a list they made of other fun things to do in the Grand Teton area, West Yellowstone, and other surrounding parks to help me and my family out. They also gave us a discount because they had so many cancellations due to the park closure. This was next level kindness that proved to be so helpful on our trip that had to be altered last minute

The rental itself was supposed to be @$1500 for the week by the time they got through nickel and diming me with all the fees and surcharges I ended up paying $1800 (I returned it with a full gas tank). Granted some of it was taxes but there were a lot of little ridiculous upcharges. Instead of knowing everything up front I felt taken advantage if. Vehicle was not even clean (dirty windows, in and out, needed a wash) when I picked it up. Tough time to rent due to supply and demand right now but could be handled better.

Cons:

The signage at West Yellowstone pickup could have been better. It was not clear that I needed to go inside the airport. Drop off at Bozeman was terrible. Clearly they have outgrown the small airport setup yet it persists.

Pros:

I got a call before I even left home airport that there was not a car available for me due to overbooking. So I didn’t like anything about the experience. It was expensive to Uber. And not available at the times i needed. Manager offered to pay for some Uber trips. Really wrecked this trip. No other cars were available for less than $599/day.

Cons:

They could have had a car for me since I made a reservation and counted on it. They should have gotten a car from competitor and paid for the difference in price.

This was a nightmare experience. I received confirmation of a car at Teton Aviation for $1500. I flew into Jackson Hole airport and booked a car to take me to Teton Aviation in Idaho. Before I left the airport I called Hertz at Teton to confirm (it was a long drive) and they told me it was a private airport and under no circumstance was there a car there for me and it was a mistake (even though I had a Hertz confirmation number). I called Hertz help line and they were unable to help and said there were absolutely no cars in Jackson Hole or Teton Aviation. I was stranded there with no car for a family reunion. I will never use Hertz again and the person at Teton Aviation was nasty.
