Top tips for renting a car at Bangor airport

  • You’ll accrue multiple benefits from choosing a car rental at Bangor Airport (BGR). First off, you’re likely to spend the minimum cash by renting a vehicle rather than taking a taxi, limo, or rideshare if you’ll be in town for long periods. A rental car gives you the convenience of driving to any location you would like, unlike bus lines that travel specific routes and have designated stopovers. Also, renting a car will save you time otherwise spent waiting for a public transit bus.
  • Renting a vehicle at BGR airport is convenient, and you’ll get to disembark from your plane and get behind your four wheels within no time. That’s partly due to the presence of car rental counters on-terminal and partly due to the efforts of specific agencies to minimize check-in time. When you step out of your flight and into the Arrival Terminal, you’ll find the car rental desks nearby the baggage claim area. You can expect to collect your Bangor Airport car rental on-site outside the baggage claim area once you get your rental contract and car keys.
  • It’ll be in your best interest to consider your reason for stay in Bangor when choosing a rental car at BGR. For instance, you will want a minivan rental if your small kids tag along, as it can accommodate your entire family. An SUV rental will be ideal if you’re planning on taking outdoor adventures. Rental companies also offer luxury vehicles and convertibles, both great options for a romantic getaway for couples. A long-term car rental will be more affordable if you’ll be around Bangor for a lengthy period.
  • When you’re ready for your return flight or want to return your car rental at Bangor Airport, you’ll find it easy as it involves taking the vehicle back to the point you picked it up. Head over to the airport and watch out for and follow the signs for rental car returns. Park the vehicle in the rental agency’s parking lot and then proceed to the rental counter on the first floor of the primary terminal building adjacent to Baggage Claim. Here, a staff member will take the contract and keys.
  • Book your rental car at Bangor airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pick up was inconvenient; staff was all over the place and couldn’t locate my original reservation. Tried to charge me almost twice the original agreed upon price. Also should have mentioned a $200 security deposit being added to the total balance from the beginning. Biggest annoying factor was that I had to make sure I wouldn’t be charged for prior damage done to the vehicle I picked up. Driver side mirror completely gone. Definitely sketch when going to drop off my car and they ask if I did the damage myself. Seems like there should be better communication on the company’s part when giving out damaged rides. In my opinion not worth the price or the hassle.

My Budget Camry rental was upgraded to a new Chrysler Pacifica, and the van was a comfortable hybrid with a smooth ride, easy-to-use controls, and excellent mileage. Both pick-up and drop-off at the Bangor airport were quick and easy. I was pleased with both the rental vehicle and the rental experience.

Pros:

Staff was excellent and very friendly. Wish I had paid more attention as to where the car was located. Had to walk around the lot "beeping" the car to find it.

Cons:

No instructions on how to use keyless car. Card or manual in glove box would be helpful. 1. Step on brake to start car while pushing start/stop button. 2. How to open the gas tank and where it's located. 3. Toll E Z Pass use. 4. How to open rear door on SUV. Not all of us have these features in our cars. And no visual indicators for this inside car. It was trial and error finding skills. Called my sister who knew how to open gas tank, I would have never found it!. Both SUV's I rented were a little different with these things. But both were very comfortable and made for a great drive.

Pros:

We loved the Nissan SUV that we were given. Might even buy one ourselves :). The pickup was a couple of hours too early, but that was an easy adjustment for the salesperson. Loved the good deal from KAYAK. Saved about $350 total for one week!

Cons:

I honestly don't like the hard sell that car rental companies often do and Alamo was no exception. She tried to sell me the full tank of gas, insurance that would have duplicated what we already had, told us about a toll booth gadget, but did not inform us there would be high charges if we used it $3.95/day we later found out. I would love it if ONE car company was truly honest and told us "You really don't need this, but we offer it"

The way they do the gas is confusing. They make you guess up front how much gas you're going to use. Why not just give you a full tank and have you pay at market price for the amount you use?

We had to wait about 20 minutes for someone to come to the counter. We were at least first in line by the time they came back. Someone from another car rental kiosk said they were moving cars and would return. Everything else was pretty good. It was a little difficult to find the car, but we eventually figured it out.

Cons:

They wouldn’t let me have the car bc my card I’d prepaid in full with was a MasterCard debit card (instead of a credit card), & also bc my return flight location didn’t match the location I was dropping off the rental car. The man a the counter said he couldn’t refund me, but gave me a 1-800 number to call instead. I spent about an hour on the phone during my vacation trying to get refunded. One time I was on hold for 20 minutes and the lady accidentally disconnected our phone call, so I had to call & go through the entire process again.A rental car company two counters over was more than happy to rent to me with my debit card & return flight that didn’t match the car drop off, with a price considerably less than Avis’s. I will never rent from Avis again.

KAYAK

Pros:

New car

Cons:

Had rented an intermediate level car for fuel efficiency for the long one way drive. After waiting 30+ minutes for the rental shuttle to come to airport, we were taken to a dirty building that was chaotic. They didn’t have enough rentals so it was either take the inefficient SUV or wait even longer for another return. The SUV was dirty as well. The return location at Trenton airport lacks signs on the road telling you which lot to drop it off in as well as the prerecorded message when you call the location doesn’t help.

Pros:

The people at the Bangor location were very nice - although I have to once again say that I have never had a better experience than what we have come to expect from Lance Reardon at your Ellsworth facility ...Lance is THE man!!!

Cons:

It is a very minor thing to mention, but I dislike when I get a car that has less than a full tank - it is easy to fill up before returning but I invariably overfill when I was given a car that was 3/4 or less

Sep 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was in good condition

Cons:

When we arrived, we were told that they did not have a car for us and could not get one. They said we could wait around to see if someone else did not pick up their rental and we could have their car. After waiting for an hour, we were told that we would have to come back to the airport in the morning to pick up a car. Our hotel was over an hour away, so we asked if they would pay for us to stay in a hotel nearby. We were told "no", that we would have to come back at 11am the next day. After paying to get a ride to our hotel and back to the airport, they gave us a measly $35 credit for our trouble. I would ABSOLUTELY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE rent a car from them again.

I booked a vehicle on KAYAK for the same day. Got confirmation email etc. The rental company immediately called me and left a message on my home number - which I did not see until after I came to the rental desk. It essentially said that not only they do not have the vehicle class I needed - they had NO vehicles to rent. Makes one wonder how the reservation system and KAYAK work.
