by Paul Joseph | Published June 26, 2020
With a population of just over 55.000, Idaho Falls acts as the commercial and cultural hub for eastern Idaho, as well as parts of Wyoming and Montana. Served by the Idaho Falls Regional Air-port and is often used as a stepping stone for those people vis-iting Snake Plain River, Yellowstone National Park and the Cra-ters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve.

For those looking to explore the areas in around the Idaho Falls area, we have compared the various rental car companies on a va-riety of factors, such as opening hours, available cars and of course, daily rates. Here are our favourites.
If you happen to be flying into Idaho’s second busiest airport and you need to rent a vehicle, then Idaho Falls Airport offers you a choice of eight of the main car rental agencies. With their cars just a short walk from the luggage claim, we picked Hertz as the most recommendable. On our sample dates, we found there to be very little difference in price between economy, midsize and small SUVs with all these vehicles at approximately $65 per day. Service and smiles can vary according to the time you fly in or out, but on the whole, the staff receive positive feedback. Opening hours Monday – Sunday; 7am – 12am.
Our choice for best rental company in central Idaho Falls goes to Enterprise. According to customer reviews, not only is their service friendly and professional, but customers are convinced Enterprise have some of the best prices. And from our research, they are right. We found a large selection of cheap car rentals in all categories, the lowest price being a Kia Rio at $31 and Toyota Rav4 at $45 per day (both before taxes and extra fees). Opening hours: Monday – Sunday, 8am – 5pm; Saturday 9am – 12pm; Sunday closed.
Believed, by general consensus, to be the best peer-to-peer rental company in the RV rental business, Outdoorsy has a wide selection of RVs in the Idaho area for rent. If you’re not ac-customed to renting out RVs, then we’d be pushed to find a bet-ter place to start. Outdoorsy is easy enough to use; just enter the rental location and date range, then hit search. Once booked, you can insure against accidents, trip cancellation and damage protection (insurance for the inside of the RV). Overall, it’s an extremely smooth operation and if there’s a number of you, a lot cheaper than renting a car and staying in hotels.
