If you're a big fan of the outdoors, then Big Sky Country is the ideal American state for you. Montana is home to some great outdoor excursions, namely Yellowstone National Park which spreads into neighbouring state, Wyoming. Within the park is the 'Grand Canyon of Yellowstone' with a massive waterfall. Also in the boundaries of Yellowstone is the Yellowstone Caldera, a supervolcano that's the largest on the continent. It's well worth taking up car hire in Montana to head out to the National Park and will also give you opportunity to cover the other parks and forest on the Western border of the state, depending upon the area you're visiting.
Given its position, the far north location of Montana is great come winter. There are a whole host of winter sports to get involved in, and Glacier National Park on the northern border is home to The Rocky Mountains which run into Canada; an excellent location to engage in outdoor activities, if you're hiring a car in Montana, you can stock it full of cold weather essentials - depending when you're visiting - and explore the park at your leisure. There's over a million acres to cover, so you'll find plenty of amazing things to see.
The climate across Montana can vary greatly, but be prepared for year round wintery driving conditions. Snowfall has been recorded on the mountainous regions throughout the year, so it's best to take adequate precautions. Chains for your tyres should create much more drivable conditions, and we'd recommend bringing an emergency stock of blankets and small snacks should you face a sudden weather change, particularly through September to May when winter takes over the state. There are several large road networks throughout Montana, so travelling around is easy with your hire car.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
