One of the biggest summer complaints is the lack of rental cars during the peak summer period. Well, it’s true and you HAVE to make your car reservations early for late June – early August. We cannot stress this enough. Some folks have resorted to renting a u-haul. Others fly into Bozeman or another town and take a very scenic drive to get here.

A couple options we will tell you about if you have no luck.

Turo Think of it as the airbnb for cars. You’re renting someone’s car. It’s a really nice feature, we’ve heard

very nice things about the Whitefish and Kalispell renters. And, we know their prices are much much better than those at the airport.  Thankfully, the airport is expanding. Consequently, this means more cars too. But, we would highly recommend you check out Turo. Mind you, they book up too so plan ahead. We cannot stress this enough.

Use a local shuttle. Whitefish Tours & Shuttle is a great option for small to bigger groups of 1-10. They use Subarus, GMCs and vans so you’ll find them comfortable and affordable.

They can drop you off at Lake MacDonald at Apgar Village and pick you up there again. Have bikes? They’ll take those in for you too!

If you’d rather kick back and let the guides do the work – and we don’t blame you – take advantage of their scenic driving tour. You can sit back and let their drivers show it all to you so you can focus on the beauty that is Glacier National Park. Whether it’s a trip to Pole Bridge, East Glacier and Two Medicine or even to Flathead Lake, the choice is yours. See their trip schedules for Glacier at Whitefish Tours & Shuttle.

Also, Whitefish Outfitters can set you up with great gear and bikes to really experience Glacier National Park. Even before the Park fully opens for the summer season, their team will give some great options so you can have a memorable time.
