KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Portland

  • Portland, Oregon is the ideal location to take advantage of the wondrous landscapes and climate that the northwestern United States has to offer. Renting a car will give you the unrivaled opportunity to explore Mount Hood National Forest, Columbia River and Gorge, Forest Park, and Blue Lake Regional Park. These regions are virtually inaccessible via public transport, and having a car will mean that you can drive directly to a gateway of fishing, hiking, bike riding, and scenic opportunities.
  • Picking up your hire car at Portland International Airport is a quick and simple process. Proceed to the baggage claim area and walk directly across the road to the first level of the parking garage. Here, you will find many major car hire companies to choose from, such as Enterprise, Dollar, Payless, and Alamo. The distance from Portland International Airport to downtown is 9 miles; the quickest route is to take the Banfield Expressway (I-84), which will get you there in approximately 30 minutes.
  • Portland’s beautiful weather encourages plenty of cyclists to get out on the roads and that means it’s important to be careful when driving your hire car. Be mindful of green bike boxes at intersections across the city, as these provide a safe space for cyclists to stop. It is illegal to turn right on a red light if there is a green bike box at the intersection. When driving in the downtown district, keep in mind that there are a lot of one-way streets, so it is best to use a navigational tool and to pre-plan your driving route.
  • Due to the surrounding wilderness and national parks, Portland is prone to wildfires, such as the Eagle Creek Fire of 2017. Be sure to check the local weather conditions and that all roads and highways on your route are open and safe to access. Especially in the warm and dry summer months, regularly pay attention to weather warnings, as conditions can change quickly.
  • Book your rental car in Portland at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Portland are around 2% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Portland

Make sure that you are renting at the airport. If you rent from a location away from the airport, you will need to provide your own transportation to get your car. Also, pay attention to the hours at the specific location where you rent from, to make sure your pick-up and drop-off times will work.

We were in the Welches about an hour out of Portland so no traffic or parking issues, which was good since we had managers special of a pickup truck.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Allow extra time to get to airport if coming from the coast as the highway cuts through the city and there’s lots of congestion as multiple lanes converge.

Pick up Luggage after you get the car and drop it off before you take car back.Airport is too far to lug everything back and forth.

We rented at PDX and easily found our way down to Silverton where we were staying. It was so handy to pickup and drop off the car right in the PDX terminal
Verified travelerJun 2023
Save 10%-17% by renting outside of the airport. Choose a non-budget rental company like Hertz and you'll probably pay less in the long run.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Easy to get around. Great rental set up at PDX.
StellaAug 2023
Rent from this location. Easy. Friendly, decently priced.
HubertJul 2023
Check the office closure times and assume they close 15 minutes prior to that. Overbooked your days needed and turn in the car when you are done. Gas in Idaho is way cheaper then Portland, if making that road trip, don't buy the fuel package.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Avoid Thrifty because you can't know for sure if the slow agent will be working and sucking up your time. Outside of the rental center experience, the car was great and a good value.
Verified travelerAug 2023
If you need a reasonably priced car to get you around Avis is a decent bet. Don’t expect to live in the lap of luxury though.
CarrieAug 2023
Just know it’s a long walk out to the rental car area and a long walk back when you drop it off.

Line was long to pick up. Drop off was super easy. Car was somewhat clean. According to the mileage it was brand new, but did not seem brand new. Value was great and affordable.

The staff / crew were all superb. Though the car I was given had been smoked in / had a cigarette burn in the seat / had recently been deep cleaned to cover it up. So that was less than ideal but fine, especially since I booked the least expensive economy available. But again, all the staff was super nice. Overall is a good experience, I’d rent from them again.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing. Worst rental experience of my life. Car was dirty upon pickup. Had to make a few changes to my itinerary and their customer service line was busy or disconnected. It automatically more than doubled my charges. When I left a poor review at Avis, I was contacted by a customer service manager who said he would credit me back $200...and after 3 follow up emails over the course of 2 weeks, he has not responded. Horrible company

Cons:

Absolutely everything. Terrible experience and will never rent from them again

Car was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. ONCE THEY STAFFED THE COUNTER PROPERLY FOR THE REZ LOAD. It took literally 2 hours in line to pick up car. Two agents for Avis / budget combined with at least 70 people in queue. After hour and half , 3 agents arrived and helped solve it. But missed an afternoon of touring planned. I have traveled for 45 years and it was worst pickup line delay i have ever experienced. Not agents fault but mgr should be aware of rez load with flights info.

Mystery car: is a medium size [not small] pickup truck. Awkward, bulky, hard to park. Returning the truck was the biggest problem. I followed the Budget signs till they ran out, and couldn't find the return bay. I asked for help and was told "over there" repeatedly. Staff finally said "just leave it here, we'll take care of it."

Cleanliness was very poor, there was trash from prior rental, steering weel was sticky, and overall dirty interior. Value would be better if the car was well kept, but when you calculate the added cost of having to rent at the airport with the condition of the vehicle it is not a good value.

PDX has rental pick ups left unmarked, leaving you guessing where to go. When you finally get to Thrifty, you then will likely have to leave your stuff and go back downstairs. They didn’t give me the car I requested, and because of it I ran out of miles before my destination. I had to stop to charge the EV - it cost me $50 to get enough juice to get me to where I was going, and then Thrifty charged me again for being undercharged. Terrible experience.

Terrible I spoke to them several times throughout the day before I showed up to get my rental car and I was told that first they didn't have the car that I was had originally rented and then they didn't have the second car that they said that they would have for me in place of the first one and then when I got down there they refused to accept my card that I had that I had told them several times during the day that I was going to be using and that I had held the reservation with so I ended up not getting in the car at the last minute and had to go find somewhere else to get a car and I'm very upset about it it all stemmed from the fact that they were closing at the time of my pickup and they didn't want to deal with me pretty much it was quite obvious how they felt

I rented from the downtown Portland Hertz office instead of at the airport due to large price difference. When I called the Hertz agent to find out which Max tram stop was closest to the office, the agent did not know where the Hertz office was located relative to the tram line. That would be helpful information.

Pick up was a nightmare, got sent back and forth up and down to 2 different floors, eventually got sent to a pick up area and was told 'go to area 3'. We go and there's nobody there...we come back...'which car is ours'...and are told 'just take any car'. So we take a car that is the size we wanted, are told it's fine then as we leave the parking lot, a woman scans the car and tells us it's not driveable, so we have to go back in and find another car and rinse and repeat. It was a pretty poor experience, par for the course with hertz.

Pros:

Easy pickup and the service desk guy was friendly and informative about the area where we were going. They were able to get the car early as our airline had changed our arrival time at the last minute.

Cons:

We came an hour early from our pickup time and had to wait a 15 minutes or so to get the minivan as it was upstairs. The driver was not the friendliest.
