Top tips for renting a car at Portland Airport

  • Portland and the Orlando region boast several attractions and a thriving cultural scene. The best way to make the most of your stay is by acquiring car rentals at Portland International Airport (PDX). A rental gives you the freedom to explore stunning attractions in remote places and appreciate hidden gems that cannot be reached by public transport like the bus. Moreover, no one dictates your pace when you have a rental, as is the case when dealing with fixed bus and train times. Lastly, you move around comfortably with a rental as you can select a rental that meets all your travel needs.
  • You can rent a car at Portland Airport using KAYAK. The process is easy, fast, and convenient since it can be done online from your home. The website is user-friendly, so you can quickly find the rental you’re looking for using the filter option. This option lets you set the budget and car category you require. Moreover, booking your car rental at Portland Airport through KAYAK helps you save money.
  • Make sure you return your rental at the location stated on the rental contract and before the agreed time following the expiry of your rental period. Failure to do so attracts late return fees. You can communicate with your provider about a convenient time to make the drop off if you find that you won't be able to return the vehicle on time. Some agencies allow 24-hour returns at a small extra fee, allowing you to drop off the rental outside their operating hours.
  • Expect some difficulty when picking up and dropping off your rental at Portland Airport. Some days of the week, the high influx of travelers makes it difficult to transit to the airport quickly. These include Thursdays, Sundays, and Mondays. Avoid booking flights into and out of the airport during these days as you would take longer to transit through the airport. Moreover, the best time to land at the airport is past 11 am when the airport is less busy. Avoid flying into PDX during summer, as it experiences the highest influx during this season.
  • Book your rental car at Portland Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

She said those 3 terrible cars were my only options. Yes, including a car that wouldn’t start. I canceled my reservation and went with enterprise.

I got the last car available and the interior had a strong smell of gas for the entire duration of the trip. I had to drive with the windows rolled down and no one from Enterprise answered the phone while trying to connect with them and ask if I could exchange the car during the trip from Portland to Bar Harbor.

Cons:

Pros:

The staff I saw were nice. THere was no one there when I left with the car, and there was a problem. There was something wrong with the driver's side door, and there was no one to talk with about it. I just left because it was late and I was tired.

Cons:

For $100 per day, give me a car that is perfect. That was way too expensive for a car with a door that sounded like it would break off every time I opened it.

The truck was fine. I just didn't reserve one: I reserved a mid-size car. Then the staff tried to "upsell" me a luxury car where they should have given me one at the same price because it was their fault to begin with. So I took the truck. Horrible business model.

I used my Apple Credit card. It changed card number every month. You should know that. Hertz personel wanted same card number. I already paid but my card number changed. It took 1 hour. I had to call costumer service and change my credit card number. If you don’t accept Apple Credit card, I could use another card. You didn’t!

Really poor. Was going to be placed in an EV which is not what I ordered since I was going to a little town with no charging stations. Had to move from a small size SUV to crappy sedan and pay extra $50/ day for it. I’m very unhappy about this reservation all around. Sedan car was horrible, smelled of barf and smoke.

I have already sent a blistering email to one of you sucky third parties about this awful experience and I am astonished you keep asking me about it. Truly one of the WORST experiences I have ever had while traveling. Do not contact me again for any reason!!!!!
