KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bangor

  • Nothing calls for a hire car quite like the scenic roads of Maine. It is highly suggested that visitors to Bangor take the chance to admire the scenery and there’s no better way than driving the roads yourself. One great option for visitors is to take a drive down to Acadia National Park (43 miles away). Additionally, like many cities in the U.S., private vehicles are by far the most convenient means of transport in Bangor.
  • Looking to rent a vehicle right when you arrive in Bangor? If you are flying into Bangor International Airport, you will find the hire car counters located in adjacent to Baggage Claim on the first floor of the Domestic Terminal.
  • Bangor, like much of Maine, has its fair share of wildlife. It is highly advised that drivers keep their eyes open when driving on rural roads and highways, especially at night. Wildlife appear in higher numbers in the summer and spring, so be particularly cautious during the warmer seasons.
  • Luckily for visitors and commuters in Bangor, traffic in the city is very light. During the work week, drivers can expect to experience a slight increase in congestion around 7:00 a.m., lasting until 9:00 a.m. During the afternoon and evening the traffic picks back up again just around 4:00 p.m. and cools off at around 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. If you are looking to avoid traffic during your time in Bangor, then Main Street and Union Street are the two roads to skirt around during rush hour.
  • Book your rental car in Bangor at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Bangor are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Bangor

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bangor?

    Bangor’s streets are well suited for all sizes of vehicles. Sedans, coupes, SUVs, and even large trucks will all be perfectly comfortable on the road, so all vehicle options are a good choice for renters. Additionally, streetside parking spaces are large enough for even the biggest of hire vehicles, so parking is a non-issue.

  • What’s the speed limit in Bangor?

    Speed limits start out at 25 mph for residential, downtown, and shopping areas in Bangor. Aside from that, 30 mph and 40 mph speed limits are seen posted on the main roads and larger streets in the city. Additionally, highways, and expressways in the area feature speed limits from 70 to 75 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Bangor?

    Parking garages are one of the better options for drivers in Bangor. Parking spots in the downtown area, especially near shopping areas, fill up quickly during the week so garages are often your best bet for guaranteeing a parking spot.

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.

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.
