Our Story

Explore Rentals began in the summer of 2010 as a side-hustle. It didn’t take long for reputation and demand to grow, and Explore has since become the best reviewed car rental agency in Montana and the largest purveyor of rental camping gear, campervans, travel trailers, drift boats, rafts, and fly fishing equipment in the Yellowstone region. Explore has paved the way for a budding outdoor rental industry nationwide; from being the first company in the country to offer guaranteed all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive rental cars with rental camping gear specifically for outdoor adventures, to 4×4 Sprinter van rentals, Tacoma overland rentals, bear spray rentals, and the list goes on.


We continue to strive to offer innovative and superior rental items to our customers, as well as unparalleled customer service.
