I'm headed to Glacier National Park via the eastbound Empire Builder in September. I decided to stay in Whitefish since the town is a little larger and I could use points for a chain hotel there. Has anyone else rented a car at the Whitefish Amtrak station before? Looking for some feedback regarding Budget vs Hertz there. I know Hertz actually has a rental office at the station but I see that Budget also shows rentals at the Amtrak station. I can prepay for a rental from Budget for about half the price of Hertz but I'm a little nervous about car availability and pickup method given that they don't have a physical office at the train station.
