Guaranteed 4WD and AWD rental cars with snow tires

Ensuring your safety since 2010. 

Montana, Big Sky, and Yellowstone National Park have some of the most stunning scenery and most extreme weather conditions anywhere in the world. For over a decade, Explore Rentals has been providing superiorly equipped AWD and 4WD rental cars to visitors of the Bozeman area. 

Our no-compromise attitude towards making sure our rentals have the best snow tires available and our relentless safety, inspection, and cleaning standards ensure that you have the best (and safest) available rental car on the road.






Best reviewed rental car agency in Bozeman, for over a decade.

Explore Rentals is Bozeman’s first and only, truly independent, car rental agency. Since 2010, we have been offering really good rental cars and excellent service for visitors to Bozeman, Big Sky, and Yellowstone National Park.

For 2020 we have established stringent cleaning and disinfection procedures, as well as a zero contact pick-up and drop-off experience whether you choose to pick up your rental at the Bozeman Airport or at the office, just 1.5-miles from BZN.

At Explore Rentals we know that a large part of your time in Montana will be your time on the road in between your destinations, and your car rental is a pivotal part of this experience. We also know that environmental conditions in Montana vary 12-months of the year, therefore we only rent four wheel drive and all wheel drive cars.

Driving in Montana is not just about getting from point A to point B, it is about the Road Trip. Each bend will reveal a more spectacular vista than the last. The small town you stop in for a fuel may turn out to contain a wonderful antique store or a lunch you will not soon forget. Different geological formations and wildlife abound around Montana’s roadways. To enjoy this aspect of your journey we offer superior rentals for Montana Adventures.

All of our rental Chevrolet Suburbans are 4WD models with upgraded 10-ply tires (LRE), and our all of our standard class of Suburbans feature dedicated snow tires in the winter. All of our rental Subaru Outbacks are full time All-Wheel-Drive cars, and all have snow tires in the winter. We also have the largest fleet of rental 4×4 Mercedes Benz Sprinter passenger vans, all with snow tires in the winter as well. We also offer 4wd Toyota Tacomas and Chevrolet 1500 Silverados with truck caps, snow tires, and many hundreds of pounds of sand in the back for traction for winter.

Being we do not own any vehicles that are not 4WD or AWD, you are 100% guaranteed to have a rental car that is ready for all Montana conditions when you rent from Explore Rentals.

Servicing the Bozeman Airport (BZN), Big Sky, and Yellowstone National Park

Explore Rentals is the closest off-airport rental car agency to the Bozeman Airport, just 1.2 miles east of the entrance to BZN. Our location allows for extremely fast and convenient Bozeman airport service.

We are happy to drop off rental cars at BZN, however, the Airport requires we charge a 10% Concession Fee. Many of our customers choose to take a Lyft, Uber, or Taxi to our location (less than 5-minutes away) in order to avoid this fee.
