Independently Owned = Better Service

Explore Rentals is Bozeman’s independently owned and conveniently located rental car and rental camping gear agency. Conveniently located just 1.2-miles from BZN, Explore Rentals has been Bozeman’s best-reviewed car rental agency for 6-years running. Explore also offers rental camping gear, travel trailers, fly fishing equipment, bear spray and everything else you need for Montana and Yellowstone adventures.

Explore Rentals is one of the few remaining truly independent rental agencies around. Founded in 2011, Explore has been consistently growing and expanding since the beginning: always increasing our inventory of rental cars ideally suited for Montana driving conditions as well as travel trailers, camping gear, and fly fishing rentals.

By being independent, we are able to focus on quality and customer experience, unlike our competition. As a result, since we started the business, Explore Rentals (formerly Phasmid) has been the best-reviewed car rental agency in Bozeman.

Rental Cars for Montana, Big Sky, and Yellowstone Adventures

We are the only car rental agency in Bozeman that will guarantee the exact make and model of your rental car. This is easy for us, as we only have three choices: all wheel drive Subaru Outbacks, four-wheel drive Chevrolet Suburbans, and four-wheel drive Mercedes Benz 12-passenger Sprinter vans.

All of our rental Outbacks are premium package vehicles with heated seats and dedicated snow tires in the winter.

All of our rental Suburbans feature upgraded premium Michelin 10-ply (Load Range E) Mud + Snow tires. We are the only company around that actually takes off the brand new crappy 4-ply highway tires these vehicles come with new and replaces them with Michelins. By doing this we greatly reduce the chance of flat tires in the summer, and vastly improve the winter driving safety.

We are the only company in the US to rent the very desirable four-wheel drive Mercedes Benz 12-passenger vans. These are currently the most in-demand 4×4 in the country. They offer comfort, technology, and safety that has left domestic passenger vans in the dust. Our Sprinters have 10-ply all terrain tires in the summer and dedicated snow tires in the winter.

Camping, Fly Fishing, and Outdoor Gear Rentals

We also rent RPod Travel Trailers, Chalet Campers, custom Campervans, Yakima roof boxes and ski racks, Big Agnes tents and sleeping bags, Camp Chef outdoor cooking gear, Simms and Echo fly fishing equipment, NRS drift boats, UDAP bear spray and food storage systems, Yeti Coolers and anything else you need for Montana, Big Sky, and Yellowstone adventures.
