  • Missoula Johnson-Bell Field Airport hosts several rental car agencies.

Pros:

This was the easiest rental car experience of my life. Great service from "Jason". I phoned from the airport and he picked me up in a snowstorm. Had the car running to keep it warm for me. The entire process was seamless; drop off was excellent as well. Thank you!

Cons:

The location of the rental place was about 8 minutes from the airport. In a perfect world, it would be AT the airport, but given how small Missoula is, and how quickly the shuttle process worked, it was a pretty minimal issue.

Pickup at the Missoula airport requires a short walk to an outlying location just beyond the terminal (no reflection on Thrify). Staff wasn’t very friendly. A chip in the windshield wasn’t indicated as previous damage so we had to call and report it. Car was very clean. Easy return.

Pickup in Missoula was long and arduous, long line, only one staff at a time. Vehicle was brand new, no instructions on various features, we had to ask a customer in the lot how to get in and start it! Poor choice of assignment for elderly renters, too many 'whistles and bells', hard to climb into and out of. Drop+off at Belgrade/Gallatin was quick and easy.

Rental counter is in a TENT across the parking lot. It was raining quite hard when we arrived and there was no way to get to the counter except to walk across the lot. I have had knee surgery and didn't want to slip. When i asked the attendant if there was a shuttle he laughed and told me I could walk there. I am sosrry- how is this ADA compliant at an airport?? Also there were people in wheelchairs and walkers on my flight. Low score on location set up.HIgh score on actual car! Loved my brand NEW Toyota Camry and the new car smell was intoxicating!
