KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Whitefish

  • Getting Whitefish car rentals is one of the best decisions you can make. They are a cheap traveling option, considering their security, reliability, and flexibility. You not only avoid steep fare hikes and extra luggage fees but also cramped up spaces that come with buses or trains. In addition, car rentals are reliable, unlike public transport, which comes with non-operational hours or services during certain circumstances. Car rentals offer the freedom and flexibility to travel to the city’s Whitefish Lake, City Beach, and Dick Idol Signature Gallery.
  • Whitefish car rentals offer an alternative means of transport that is not only flexible but also more affordable to those seeking to connect to various destinations in the city. For you to be able to rent a car from any of the cheap car rentals in Whitefish, you must be 21 years or older. However, you may not be able to rent certain types of cars, such as luxury cars, unless you are 25 years or older. When picking up your car, you need to have a valid driver's license bearing your name and a major credit or debit card. These age limits also apply to the additional drivers, who, however, have to pay an additional daily fee.
  • When traveling to Whitefish, you will most likely arrive at Glacier Park International Airport. It lies 11 miles from the city center. You can hire car rentals in Whitefish at the baggage claim area of the terminal building. The cars are within a short walk outside the terminal. It has over nine car rental companies, including Hertz, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Thrifty, National, and Payless. They boast an extensive fleet of cars for your choice. Some rental agencies operate 24/7, while others offer after-hour services. We recommend making earlier reservations to avoid waiting for hours when picking up car rentals in Whitefish.
  • Mountainous topology and irregular terrain characterize most of the parts of Whitefish. Consequently, with the exception of the major highways and roads around the central business district, most of the other roads are narrow. Therefore, it's advisable to maintain lower speeds when driving along these narrow roads, which also experience a surge in the number of cyclists in the morning and evening. As you drive your car from one of the cheap car rentals in Whitefish, you should remember that it is common for drivers in the city to change lanes without any warning. Staying alert any time you are behind the wheel and driving at a manageable speed can help save the day.
  • Keeping the city's driving laws is crucial when navigating car rentals in Whitefish. The Legal Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is 0.08%. Driving over the limit is an offense. Using hand-held devices while driving car rentals in Whitefish, you can use a hands-free system. Despite this, we recommend avoiding distracted driving. All drivers and passengers must have their seatbelts on. Headlights must emit amber or white light, and tinted color headlights are prohibited. Always use our turn signals at least 100 feet before the signal. Pedestrians have the right of way at all times. Children under 6- pounds aboard car rentals in Whitefish must be in child safety seats.
  • If you are hitting any of the roads in Whitefish using your rental car accompanied by your child, ensure you adhere to Montana's child seat laws. These laws require that if your child is below 6 years or weighs less than 60 pounds, they must always be in an appropriate restraint system such as a booster seat or child safety seat. You can conveniently get a booster seat, child safety seat, or infant seat from any of the cheap car rentals in Whitefish. However, you will pay an additional daily fee for each of these seats.
  • Rush hours occur in the city, a prime time for accidents due to congestion. They typically peak from 7 am to 8 am and 5 pm to 7 pm. If you do not wish to wait for hours in traffic, avoid driving these hours. Some of the traffic in Whitefish include Highway 93, Spokane, and Baker Avenue. If you wish to avoid traffic, consider driving during the clear window. Also, keep an eye out for traffic updates in the city when driving Whitefish car rentals.
  • Book your car hire in Whitefish at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Whitefish are around 1% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

The service was incredible. They sent a shuttle on time to pick us up without me having to do anything but make the reservation. They were super friendly and made us feel welcome. A real nice surprise for a rental company!

Cons:

Nothing on their end. I was unsure how it'd work with the shuttle and you could tell people that they'll show up just for you based on your time input upon reservation. This personal service is such a nice benefit that you could let the customer know upon reservation on Kayak. But the service itself was perfect!

My trip had to change due to the bed and breakfast accommodations were cancelled because the owner cancelled due to them having COVID. That made me have to cancel the car rental, Hertz still took Maloney away even though I cancelled several days in advance.

Pros:

we were able to pick up the car quickly

Cons:

The car itself was not good. When we asked if the car had 4 wheel drive we were told we would be fine without it without ever inquiring into where we were going-we could’ve used four wheel drive. While driving just along the highways themselves the car had difficulty maintaining speed and struggled at the slightest incline. The Bluetooth connection in the car was spotty at best; not to mention if you need to plug your phone in it wouldn’t play navigation from that phone anymore. If any of us had been traveling alone with this vehicle it would’ve been almost dangerous trying to read navigation from our phones the whole time. Having a good system for navigation on a rental car should absolutely be standard.

Pros:

We did a one way rental and everything went as planned. Staff at both enterprise locations were efficient and very professional.

Cons:

We arrived early into Whitefish and had hoped to pick up our vehicle early but there was insufficient inventory. Not the company’s fault but some flexibility would have been ideal.
