    Yellowstone car rental adventure

    Motorhome rental with Auto Europe

    If you have always fantasized about touring Yellowstone National Park via USA car rental, now is your opportunity here on! With our 30 percent discounts and zero hidden fees, not to mention excellent RV motorhome deals for some camping excursions, travelers can rest assured that they’ll be receiving the lowest car rental rates on the web while driving across this incredible landscape.

    Truly massive, Yellowstone National Park over 3,400 square miles across three states: mostly Wyoming, in addition to Montana and Idaho. Can you imagine that this area is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined! Matter of fact, Yellowstone even became the first national park in the United States with former President Ulysses S. Grant's signature on March 1, 1872.

    By 1915, the road system in Yellowstone was advanced enough to welcome around 1,000 annual vehicles to drive through the park, which became complicated when horses or carriages were still being used. Eventually, the park banned horse-drawn transportation, paving the way for cars to be the primary mode of transport in Yellowstone.

    Now over 4 million annual visitors come to Yellowstone, many of whom rent a car in Montana to do a bit more scenic driving along the way. At the same time, Auto Europe can also provide discount rental cars in Idaho as well as vehicles in Wyoming; simply perform a search on our booking engine to see for yourself!

    As you can imagine, vehicles are essential in Yellowstone since there isn’t any public transportation, although some private companies offer tours and shuttle services. No matter if you plan to book a car from Bozeman, Montana or maybe even a short-term lease from Idaho Falls, we at Auto Europe are here to assist you in all of your preparations! Continue reading to check out some of the most popular destinations to see with your car rental in Yellowstone.

    Where to take USA car rental in Yellowstone

    Like Iceland but more large-scale, Yellowstone is known for its geothermal activity with over 10,000 geothermal landmarks throughout the park including geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles. Hands down the most frequented destination, the iconic Old Faithful Geyser in Wyoming has been consistently erupting every 44 minutes to two hours since 2000. Located in the Upper Geyser Basin, eruptions can spew geothermal discharge up to 185 feet (56 meters) high.

    Even more intense is the dormant Yellowstone Caldera, the biggest supervolcano in North America. In total, the world’s largest active geyser field can be found at Yellowstone, not to mention half of the world’s geysers in general.

    For the most surreal of sites, we also recommend checking out the Grand Prismatic Hot Spring in the Midway Geyser Basin that is larger than a football field with vibrant psychedelic colors. The depth of the Grand Prismatic Hot Spring is also deeper than a 10-story building!

    All the while, visitors come to see endemic bison herds that can be seen roaming in the fields or even streets, sometimes causing traffic jams yet ideal photo opportunities. An estimated 4,800 free-roaming bison live on Yellowstone lands as of 2020. Besides bison, visitors will also be sharing spaces with grizzly bears, gray wolves, eagles, moose, and maybe even some wild horses.

    From there, plan to drive your Montana SUV rental or Wyoming van lease around the 140-mile Grand Loop Road in Yellowstone requiring between 4 to 7 hours. This route provides access to every geyser basin, so the Grand Loop Road is definitely an advantageous place to be in terms of seeing as much as possible.

    Other must-see park attractions can be accessed from this road including Mammoth Hot Spring, Tower Fall, Yellowstone Lake, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Primetime hiking is also available throughout Yellowstone's 1,300-mile trail system including Bunsen Peak, Mt. Washburn, Uncle Tom's Trail, among 290 waterfalls scattered throughout the park. Last but not least, don't forget that travelers can also easily drive to Glacier National Park from Yellowstone with a car rental from Auto Europe!
