ABOUT EXPLORE RENTALS

Since 2010, Explore Rentals has been providing everything for Montana Adventures. We are a car rental agency, a camping gear rental agency, and a raft rental agency- all rolled into one. Explore Rentals is a brick-and-mortar business and is locally owned and completely original. We are conveniently located right next to the Bozeman Airport.

OUR STORY

The Founder/ Owner of Explore, Will Casella, came up with the idea while on a fishing and camping road trip in New Zealand. He had become so attached to his custom outfitted 1983 Toyota Landcruiser that he couldn’t bear to sell her at the end of the trip thinking that other DIYers like himself would want to rent “The Hippo” versus having to absorb the cost (and risk) of purchasing and outfitting their own vehicle. Sure it enough, it kind of worked, and the concept of Explore Rentals was born.

Explore opened doors in Bozeman, Montana the summer of 2010 under the previous name of Phasmid Rentals. The business started with two rental cars and a bit of rental gear in a small warehouse on the east side of town. In time, more cars were added, rental gear started multiplying, and in the summer of 2011 Explore moved to our current location adjacent to the Bozeman Airport (BZN). Since then we continue to grow and add new inventory regularly. We are incredibly proud of our extremely high repeat guest ratio, the wonderful reviews, and most importantly the great experiences that we know our guests have.

 

60+ rental cars. 20+ rental boats. 50+ rental sleeping bags.

150+ cans of rental bear spray. 240+ snow tires. 400+ types of rentals.

3,000+ individual rental items.

OUR PROMISE

Our guest’s experience is our primary goal. We go to extensive lengths to make sure your time in Montana is as enjoyable as possible. We start with offering the superior rental cars available for Montana conditions, including upgraded tires for safety. Toss in the best camping gear available on the market and a capable and knowledgeable team that can help you get to all of the good places, and it’s clear to see why Explore Rentals has been the one stop shop for Montana adventures for nearly a decade. Currently Explore Rentals is the largest independent car rental agency in the area, and still the only business that guarantees a 4WD or AWD vehicle- and puts snow tires on all of our rental cars in the winter.

Explore is the first and original car and outdoor gear provider in the country. Every year another company tries to copy our model, but our level of service and quality of available rental items has yet to be matched. You may find cheaper rental items, but you will not find anything better than what we have to offer.
