Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Montana?

Yes, it is. There are several cheap car rentals available in Montana that can help save you tons of money. Most travelers claim that the best way to get around the beautiful landscape in Montana is by car, and booking a car rental is the easiest way to do this as a visitor. You can always opt for public transportation options, such as trains, vans, and buses, but then you'd have to worry about your luggage and the possibility of missing the bus. The cost of using public transportation also adds up and might cost more than a rental car. There are several cheap rental cars in Montana, but renting a four-wheel-drive is a game changer. In this type of vehicle, you can veer off the beaten path and access hard-to-reach areas, making it easy to navigate both dirt roads and highways.


Montana rental car tips

Learn everything there is to know about renting a car in Montana so you can be properly prepared for your next trip

What are the driving conditions like in Montana?  

There’s no denying that Montana offers many scenic routes. However, driving in Montana should be done with caution, regardless of their well-maintained roads. The winter season often comes with a slew of challenges. From black ice and snow to reduced visibility, the winter months are not the best time to travel. Spring, on the other hand, comes with wet roads. Summer is better, but you’ll need to watch out for large crowds and animals. All this considered, the best way to navigate the roads in Montana is to drive slowly and cautiously. If you're booking a car rental, make sure to check that everything is in working order—that is, everything from the tire pressure down to your radiator should be in working condition.

What driving laws should I be aware of while in Montana?

So, you’ve decided to book a car rental, but have no idea what to expect in a new state or country. First things first, learn everything you need to know about the driving laws in that state or country. In Montana, you'll need to familiarize yourself with the speeding laws that are split in two: basic speeding laws and absolute limits. An absolute speed limit just means that you have to maintain a certain speed limit within a certain area, such as urban areas. Basic speeding laws state that you adjust your speed per the weather conditions, while remaining alert and careful.  Failure to comply with speed limits can lead to a fine. Always check with the local department of motor vehicles for any recent law changes.

What type of documentation do I need to rent a car in Montana?

If you're a resident in the United States or Canada, you must have a valid driver's license. If you're a visitor from a country other than the US and Canada, an International Driver's License (IDL) is recommended. Please note that you won’t be able to rent a car with just an IDL. Some companies may also ask for proof of residency, proof of identity, and evidence of authorized presence, depending on which country you're visiting from.
