Insurance and Renter’s Collision Protection Rental Rules
At minimum, you must have your own United States automobile liability policy in order to rent a vehicle. We cannot sell or provide this coverage. If you do not have a liability policy, please do not make a reservation.
If you have your own full coverage insurance, including comprehensive and collision insurance, you do not need to purchase any additional insurance from us. Please be prepared to show your insurance declarations at the time of your rental pickup. Your insurance agent can easily provide this document.
If you do not have a full coverage insurance policy that will cover the rented vehicle for comprehensive and collision damage, you are required to purchase Renter's Collision Protection (RCP). Please be prepared to show proof of an active full coverage policy if you do not want to purchase RCP.
RCP is available on all rentals. This insurance provides you, the renter, with up to $20,000 of collision and most types of comprehensive coverage on claims in excess of $1000 only. The deductible is $250. RCP is primary insurance. Even if you purchase RCP, you must still have your own personal automobile liability insurance. RCP covers our rental vehicle only, not any liability that you may have to others in the event of any accident or incident.
If you have your own full coverage insurance policy, you do not need to purchase RCP.
I have a debit card, but I don’t have a credit card. Can I rent a vehicle?
No, unfortunately we can only rent to you if you have a credit card in your own name. If the word “Debit” appears on your card, it is not a credit card.
Is there a minimum age to rent a vehicle?
You must be at least 21 years old to rent a vehicle. If you are under 25, an underage driver fee will apply. To rent the Jeep Wrangler, Full Size SUV, or 15 Passenger van, all drivers must be 25+.
What is the Airport Concession Fee?
This is a required fee if we pick you up at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. The fee is 10% of your rental charges. The fee is collected by us and is paid directly to the airport. This fee is required of all licensed rental car operators in Bozeman.
If you take an Uber or taxi to our office, this fee is waived.
What is the cancellation policy?
When you book, we will collect a 25% non-refundable down payment to secure your reservation. We do not overbook our vehicles; this policy allows us to guarantee you that you will actually get the vehicle that you reserved.
If you have selected a paid in full reservation, the reservation is non-refundable.
What is the fuel policy?
All vehicles have a full tank of fuel upon checkout. We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to refuel the rental vehicle before returning! We offer a simple solution. We will refuel the vehicle at market price, plus a $10.00 convenience charge. See? Simple!
Can I bring my pet?
Our standard policy is that pets are not allowed in rental vehicles. We may approve your pet to be transported in the Vehicle on a case by case basis. If your pet is approved, it must be transported in a pet carrier and not be left alone in the vehicle. A minimum fee of $175 will apply if pet hair is discovered in the vehicle.
Can I tow with a rental vehicle?
No. You may not tow a trailer of any kind with any of our rental vehicles.
