Renting a Car in Bozeman

They all have check-in desks by the baggage claim area, so visitors can quickly get their rental car and be on their way to start their vacation. There are several off-site car rental companies including Journey, Phasmid, and Toyota. Shuttles are available to take customers to their offices. Drivers are required to show a valid driver's license and to pay by credit card. Drivers aged 25 or under may incur a young driver surcharge. There are three gas stations adjacent to the airport, to ensure that the car can be returned with a full tank.
Driving Around Bozeman
Downtown Bozeman is located approximately 10 miles southeast of the airport. The quickest way to get there is to drive south on I-90. Traffic might increase slightly during the early morning rush hour and evening commute, but the area around the airport remains pretty clear for the most part. The side roads are well-maintained, but it's important to be cautious when driving during the winter. The area can get heavy snow, and the roads may be slick and icy.
On-street parking is free for two hours, and there are also two-hour parking lots available. For all day parking, there is a parking garage just north of Main Street.
What to Do in Bozeman
Bozeman is a destination that has something to offer visitors in all four seasons. In the warmer months, drive approximately an hour and a half south to experience spectacular Yellowstone National Park. For a beautiful, natural attraction just an hour south of Bozeman, Palisade Falls is a popular waterfall. There's a hiking trail that's a little over a mile long, and many people choose to enjoy a picnic lunch in this area as well.
In winter, enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, snow shoeing, or ice skating. If snow and ice aren't appealing, check out the local hot springs, breweries, and distilleries.
For indoor attractions, head to the American Computers and Robotics Museum, located only 15 minutes south of the airport. It includes the history of computing, communications, robotics, and artificial intelligence. Exhibits include typewriters and giant computers from the 1970s.
Dinosaur lovers will enjoy the Museum of the Rockies, which is just a few minutes further east. The skull of a Tyrannosaurus rex, which has fossilized meat attached, is on display. Dr. Jack Horner, the paleontologist who was the technical advisor for the Jurassic Park movies, is employed here.
