KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Great Falls

  • With car hire in Great Falls, you will be free to roam this beautiful city of Montana and truly immerse yourself in the wonders of nature that have put it firmly on the map. Based between Yellowstone and Glacier National Park, there is no better location for optimal scenic drives. Great Falls car hire gives you ample opportunity to take drives along the Missouri River, enjoy the local history and traditions and visit some of the landscapes from yesteryear. When you want to explore further beyond the inner city, take your Great Falls hire car out to Helena on a roughly 90 mile (145 km) trip and see the capital, or explore Glacier National Park by car, only about a 2 hour drive from the city.
  • When you arrive in Great Falls by air, you will probably have flown in via the Great Falls Airport (GTF). Even if you have arrived by train, you will find the airport to be a comprehensive hub when it comes to car hire agencies. When you book beforehand through KAYAK, you can arrive at your destination and drive straight into the city to start your adventures with no delays. Agencies that have branches at the airport include Enterprise, Budget and Avis.
  • Booking cheap car hire in Great Falls will open you up to fantastic road trips from the minute you arrive. With scenic views from every direction, you will be blessed with efficient motorways and a sophisticated road network. Interstate Highway 15 and MT State Highway 200 both connect into Great Falls, giving you access to surrounding cities with an easy route. In the city, you will find easy-to-navigate grid-like roads. You can only drive with a 0.02% blood alcohol limit, which is far less than in Australia, and seat belts are required for all passengers.
  • As with most cities, tourism and peak hours can cause congestion on the roads. The streets of Great Falls that suffer the most are 9th Street North, 10th Avenue South and 15th Street North, resulting sometimes in back-ups for blocks. River Drive is a scenic road in the region that often causes drivers to stop their cars and look out at the view, causing problematic choke points and hazards. You will also sometimes find slow-moving vehicles on the roads, delaying traffic. Snow mostly falls from November to April, which can be hazardous for driving. Get snow chains and a GPS from your car hire agency to help ensure safety.
  • Book your car hire in Great Falls at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Great Falls are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

Be sure and review the vehicle before leaving the rental area.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Go slow watch traffic signs , we got turned around a few times, but quickly figured things out. Get a paper map. It really helps with the “big” picture look of the area.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Please check the car inside out and make sure all is in order before renting out, particularly when there is an expired license plate…..

Make sure you check all damage before leaving the lot.

  • What is the speed limit in Great Falls?

    When preparing to drive in Great Falls, the speed limit is one of the most important factors to consider.

If you are remaining in the urban city areas, you should stick to 25 mph (40 kph). When you are on small highways, you can drive up to 65 mph (105 kph), and highways allow for 75 mph (120 kph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Great Falls?

    Downtown street parking in Great Falls is a highly sought-after commodity. City traffic officers will ensure that on-street parking rules are observed very strictly, so ensure you understand the meter system and the amount of time you have, to avoid a fine. There are several car parks that are either free or charged, such as Elmer Parking Lot, Park Manor Parking Lot and Great Falls City Parking Ramp.

Pros:

Car was clean. Pickup and drop off was very easy.

Cons:

The car had either a previous smoker or whoever cleaned up the car was a heavy smoker. Smell was bad enough to irratate my daughter's throat. As we had to sign that we would not smoke in the car, I didn't appreciate that the smell already smelled like smoke. Otherwise, the car ran good. Pickup and drop off were easy. It handled the icy parking lots/roads good.

Pros:

It appears easy IF you do not really want to get a car.

Cons:

They had no record of the reservation and no cars available. I was forced to scramble for a last minute reservation from anyone who had a car and pay a higher price. PLUS, this took about an hour extra putting my whole schedule off.

The Budget service person told me that the car I had requested had not been cleaned but was full of gas. I confirmed that it was a full sized sedan and asked what an upgrade would cost. Response was no additional cost and gave me a 4-Runner. It had 5600 miles on it and displayed a message that it "required an oil change". It smelled as if someone had smoked in it too. Because I was up against a time issue and there were people waiting for me to pick them up I took the vehicle. Appreciate the upgrade but having the warning message made me nervous as I had to drive the unit from Great Falls to Bozeman. It worked fine and there didn't appear to be any issues when I dropped off the vehicle. They shouldn't be sending our units needing service.

Quick and easy. No one goes to the vehicle with you to chk it out they give you an outline of a vehicle with marks on it for damage and tell you to chk it out and bring it to their attention if there's more as well as is it dirty and make sure the tanks full. On return again no one checks out the vehicle and I was asked what the ending mileage was, I had to go get it.

I was bummed they didn’t have a clean car ready when I reserved one in advance. I did get a free upgrade on a dirty vehicle which was great. Drop off in Belgrade was amazing, just had to pull up and leave the keys inside. I don’t love EV’s but the car upgrade was fun because the sound system was good and the car had lumbar support.

Pros:

We returned the first car after one day because of low tire pressure warning. Avis agent had a new car available immediately. It was a painless exchange. This was before we headed out on a 900 mile trip to Glacier Natl Park. So no worry about tires after that.

Cons:

The first car was a bit sorry looking with lots of damage areas and 26,000 miles on it. But the second car was beautiful with only 9000 miles on it. The first car did not represent Avis reputation, but the second car definitely did.

Pros:

The lady at my pickup point was wonderful, and after a 2 hour ordeal trying to rent the car she helped us sort everything out and get on the road. This was about the ONLY positive experience I had with Avis.

Cons:

After being told my rental would be $1500 and repeatedly confirming this, I arrived at my pickup location and was told the price would be $2700. I did not have this amount accessible but was informed that the price could not be reduced until I payed that amount as a deposit. After two hours and a few phone calls begging for money, We had the car at a price of $2000 which I was expected to call up and negotiate about. Later in the trip our keys became locked in the trunk. This then became a 2 day ordeal in which avis had us towed us 100 miles and wasted hours of our time, ignoring everything I had told them as if I knew nothing. All our belongings, including phone and wallet were locked in the trunk. After arriving 100 miles and 3 hours away from where we were supposed to be staying we were informed the car could not be opened until the next morning. I explained that I could not pay for accommodation since I had nothing on me and the employee simply shrugged at me and handed me the keys to a different car. After sleeping in the car in a parking lot we returned the next day to find out, despite being told the car would be unlocked with another key by avis, that they had torn out the back seats and damaged our belongings.

It was generally good but the car had an expired California number plate and the control console was not checked beforehand. For example, some maintenance work was needed according to a yellow light and the tire pressure was not checked before renting the car to me! That is something I would expect to be done. And last but not least; the car was absolutely dirty outside (I had to bring it to a car wash first) and no vacuuming was done inside. The car itself was great but the service prior to handing out the car to me could have been better….
