2.0 Mediocre24 Jul 2020
Pros: The man I spoke to was abrupt and rude.Cons: I wasn't allowed to rent a car because my spouse's name was on the card instead of mine. Even though my spouse entered the store with proof that I was on the account.
10.0 Excellent19 Jul 2020
Cons: GPS. A rental should have a GPS
10.0 Excellent14 Jun 2020
Pros: Staff was polite and friendly. Car was beautiful, clean, a great deal.Cons: not a thing.
2.0 Mediocre4 May 2020
Pros: N/ACons: The car rental place - Dollar Rental - was closed. They modified their operating hours (I guess because of coronavirus?) so when I got there, it was already closed, even though I was on time to my reservation. I was stuck in the rain looking for another car rental place that was open. I had to take a Lyft there and rent a more expensive car. I spent $65 instead of $21. Please work better with your providers to update operating hours so that people can avoid this negative experience.

Cons: The car I had was a gas guzzler
10.0 Excellent9 Oct 2019
Pros: Staff were kind, helpful, and not pushy. The process was much easier than expected (it was my first time getting a rental car for travel). We opted for the "Manager's Special" option because it was the cheapest, and the vehicle they selected for us was great! Thank you!Cons: Nothing really comes to mind.
10.0 Excellent26 Aug 2019
Cons: It was the best car rental experience. The Toyota Corolla performed like a dream, the pick up and drop off were excellent, the employees at Portland downtown were a pleasure, the price was great and it was unlimited mileage. Remember to fill the tank

Pros: Average experience.Cons: Staff friendliness. They could accept international credit/debit cards but the system recognize them as debit only. After business hours drop-off could be easier.

2.0 Mediocre19 Oct 2020
Pros: Cecilia at the Portland airport was great. She made a frustrating experience better, was helpful, kind, and really helped us out. She was the redeeming factor of our trip. The car we rented was nice, clean, and drove smoothly.Cons: Staff was terrible. We got a flat tire and no one we contacted was helpful. Lyric in particular was rude, dismissive, and condescending when we had to get another rental car from the airport (after enterprise had us drive with the tow truck driver 50 miles). The price was not clear upfront and we had up sell charges we were not aware of. Different staff gave different price quotes and were not knowledgeable. We bout the drivers rental insurance and yet were still charged for the flat and the tow. We will not be using enterprise again, or booking through a third party either.

Pros: The staff were working exceptionally hard and we’re very pleasant and as helpful as they could possibly be.Cons: It took an hour and a half to get my car as the location was significantly understaffed. The employees were running around like crazy doing the jobs of 3 people.
9.6 Excellent31 Jul 2020
Pros: The reservation address was an off-site location near the Portland airport. I took an uber to get there only to discover the whole location was closed. Fortunately an employee was kind enough to drive me over to the airport. The car was waiting and ready to go. Easy check-in at the Albuquerque rental return location. The SUV was very comfy. I don't like driving, but it was fun to drive. Didn't drive like a brick. Felt more like a sports car.

6.0 Good4 Jul 2020
Pros: Friendly yes but they tried to over charge me saying that I was going to return the car 5 hours after I picked it up so they were going to charge me a late fee even tho the car was returned before the 24 hours. Eventually they did refund the late fee.

10.0 Excellent27 May 2020
Pros: The staff was very nice and friendly, and also the car was very nice and comfortable.Cons: To have a closer drop location, because I was so tired and had to drive back and forth more than fifty miles, so I would be more happy if there is a closer location that I can drop.
2.0 Mediocre3 Jan 2020
Pros: I made reservation at Portland Airport Information desk approx. 10:45 am on 12/24. He told me to pick up the rental before 6pm and he understand I will be driving to Seattle and drop off at Seattle Intl airport the next day. When I checked in with Avis I specifically mentioned I will drop off the car at Seattle airport around 11Am the next day on the 25th. The agent mentioned to pick up the car at stall N26. When I went to pick up the car at N26, there is no car so I went back to the office and the lady give me K21. At the counter I asked for a little bigger car which shows $64.54 versus originally $$45.23. On the eve of the 24th I noticed it shows I have to return by 6pm on the 24th. I called Avis right away, The man who answered was not too friendly who just said I have to pay the higher price approx. $77.00 with tax included. I believe his name is Manual. I returned the car next morning at 10:06am. I was kind of upset with this whole deal and forgot to fill the tank up. Even though I have plenty of time to refuel but since it was on Christmas Day I don't want to take the chance in case I got lost or no gas station close by so I have to pay the most expensive gas bill of $46.20. Even you add $77.00 and $46.20, it should not be total of $136.87. I have no idea where the rest of $13.67 came from. I usually rent from Enterprise and my daughter aways rent from Avis so I was thinking to give it a try. Very disappointed!!

Pros: Easy and efficient. Great price. Easy drop off location changeCons: Nothing
4.4 Okay28 Oct 2019
Pros: The staff was helpful and friendly. Checkout was very easy, literally just drove up and left the car.Cons: While the staff at Avis seemed friendly and somewhat helpful, there was a very long wait to get the rental. There were only two agents at the counter assisting a fairly long line of customers and they did not seem to be aware of how long they were taking and did not even greet customers or acknowledge the line or the long wait, this while other rental companies on the floor had little to no wait. A third agent arrived and was doing two check-ins at once going back and forth between the two check-ins which made things go a bit faster, while the other two agents were still going at a snails pace. I finally got the keys to the car and was given the number of the space where the car was located but when I got upstairs, there was no car. I asked their counter located upstairs, that apparently is only for “premiere” renters or for higher valued vehicles. There were two agents helping one customer with another customer waiting and two members of staff at that counter “chit chatting”. Again, no acknowledgement when I entered. I waited another 5-7 mins with no acknowledgement and only when I approached one of the two staff members as they were walking out did they “notice” me and assist by walking me out to the numbered spot just to tell me I had to go back downstairs. No offer to have me be helped. I was given another rental and I loaded my luggage into the trunk and got in to drive away only to find that the car smelled of cigarette smoke. I unfortunately was not able to go back and request another rental due to my schedule and I had to reluctantly leave with that car. The smell of cigarette smoke, was noticeable all weekend and other family members noticed it when in the car. I tried calling for 30 mins after driving away to inform Avis of the smoke smell but no one answered and finally I stayed on the line long enough for the call to be directed to the general corporate call line where an associate was able to notate the smell in my file. Overall, in comparison to other larger rental companies like Enterprise or Hertz, this experience has been very poor, more like what I would expect from a smaller, local/regional and unknown rental company vs a larger national chain.

2.0 Mediocre26 Jul 2020
Cons: Our rental was non-cancelable under any circumstances. Apparently even Covid travel restrictions!
8.0 Excellent22 Jul 2020
Pros: We waited for a very long time for the airport shuttle and finally had to Uber to the off-site location. When we got there we complained about the wait and were told it was our fault because the shuttle only comes when you request (we were never told this ) it at the Information desk at the airport. Well, we went to the Information Desk and found it unmanned!!! We tried to call Thrifty but only got a recorded message. The van we rented was clean and ready once we finally got there but our level of frustration was high.Cons: If your pick up van is not going to circle the airport regularly then LET PEOPLE KNOW and provide a phone number that actually goes to the pick up location. Very frustrating!!! Will not rent from them again.

Pros: The staff was friendly and expedient. Pickup and drop off were super quick and easy.Cons: I wish I had known while booking that whoever booked the rental would be the only driver unless we paid a fee. I ended up driving the whole time and I would have preferred my husband to be the driver but I wasn't able to add him without paying an additional $13 per day.
6.0 Good24 Jun 2020
Pros: the drop off was easy--Cons: the car wasn't what was shown in the photos-- it also had 'hertz' logos all over it so i paid to drive a marketing campaign-- the price went up upon pickup due to a 'mandatory insurance', i was directed to the wrong car initially and had to go back inside to say this key does not unlock this car.

10.0 Excellent1 Sep 2020
Pros: Good value. Clean. Shuttle was quick. No complaints.Cons: Had to wait about 10 minutes for shuttle due to COVID restrictions (only could allow certain number of people on each shuttle), which we understood.

10.0 Excellent4 May 2020

10.0 Excellent17 Feb 2020
Pros: Friendly staff. I got a free car upgrade to and I really enjoyed the car. I was able to evaluate some new tech saftey features and the car was really comfortable. Also it was a hybrid so I didn’t have to pay as much gas!Cons: Everything was great.
4.8 Okay11 Feb 2020
Pros: The people were friendly and willing to attempt to help.Cons: My issues were a variety of things. When I was assigned a car I paid for, and everything greened great, we discovered that the cars keys had been lost after my bags were already loaded up. The next car that I was given was a Jeep Wrangler hardtop, that whistled loudly over 20mph, returned it the next day for a third car, a Nissan Pickup. Which was fine. When I checked out, the rate had gone up significantly and was told that they didn’t k ow what had happed and had to look into it. All well and good but I had a flight to catch and had to trust the staff would get it fixed for me. Eventually it did, but the process of this whole rental was not great even though the people were.
9.6 Excellent31 Dec 2019
Cons: There was no owners manual in the car, for information on operation of the different modes of four wheel drive. There was not a snow brush or even an ice scraper. We got the four wheel drive vehicle specifically to go to the Mt. Hood/Government Camp area.
9.6 Excellent3 Dec 2019
Pros: Everyone was greatCons: All the other agencies have airport onsite kiosks except for Budget. I had to take a shuttle, which increased the time it took to get from and to the airport. I was not expecting this.

8.0 Excellent5 Feb 2019
Pros: Staff were very nice and helpful. Once we made it to the rental facility pick up was very easy. Dropping off the car on the way out was also very easy. The car itself was nice and clean.Cons: Airport shuttle only comes every 30 minutes. We just missed it so were waiting a full 30 minutes before it came to take us to the rental facility.
10.0 Excellent21 Nov 2018
Pros: Your counter staff was excellent on both pickup and return.
3.2 Mediocre23 Oct 2018
Shuttle never showedCons: At th me curb, the PDX airport employee told me that Payless’ shuttle shows up “about every 30 minutes”, and this was at 2pm. I tried to call Payless, multiple times, and found it impossible to talk to any person at all. I just wanted to let them know I was waiting. So I simply walked away from the reservation. Renting from Payless was a bad idea.
3.6 Mediocre13 Sep 2018
Horrible experienceCons: We decided to upgrade to a larger vehicle at check-in and were quoted one price. Then at drop off, the price had over tripled. The communication was horrible, and we ended up spending way more than originally planned. Make sure you ask for everything in writing
2.0 Mediocre19 Jul 2018
Kayak website is not correct, will book directly with car rental in fuPros: Payless representatives was good, I am giving low rating due to website being incorrect and customer service not helpful.Cons: When selecting car, requested pickup at airport terminal, paid more, but car rental was not at airport but had to take shuttle to off site lot.
6.4 Good18 Jul 2018
Closed when our flight got therePros: The car was clean and comfortableCons: Didn’t realize the office was almost 3 miles from the airport. We waited on a shuttle for 45 minutes and then found out the office was closed. The nice person at the Avis desk was finally able to help us
4.0 Okay16 Jul 2018
Could have been better about dropoff information accuracyPros: During pickup, one employee was very helpful and pleasant. Rate was correct and although car had close to 40000 miles on it, car ran well(but had stains inside and torn flooring).Cons: Told that since offsite at Portland airport and last Sunday shuttle was at 6:40 pm, I could return it after that at Budget or Avis. Since it was about 6:40 when I was near return, I went straight to Budget (also offsite). I had to wait in line of people picking up cars for about 15-20 minutes (was advised Budget couldn’t check car in like all othe rental companies at point of return), then waited about another 10-15 minutes for employee to confirm that Budget wouldn’t check in car and I’d have to go to Avis, drove to Avis (onsite) and had to go to office there and finally got it checked in. Made for a tighter run to catch plane than expected. Disappointing lack of coordination and helpfulness by Payless and Budget
6.8 Good26 Jun 2018
Pros: The car was fine and the service was good on site. Everyone was very helpful. The cost of the car was by far the most inexpensive.Cons: When trying to find out if they cover a car in Canada, I could not get an answer, in fact, the staff was rude and uncooperative. When I asked for a supervisor, they would not refer me to one. When I contacted corporate, they would not resolve the issue either. We did not know if the car would be covered until we reached the site. We had to make other plans for driving in Canada before we made our trip, because there was no certainty if we would be able to drive there. When we reached the site, they said quite nicely, "certainly you can drive in Canada.." Why could they not tell us this before we made our trip?
8.0 Excellent17 Jun 2018
Pros: Quick service and good valueCons: Car had no windshield wash fluid and was not that clean

4.0 Okay27 Oct 2020
Pros: The only positive with my experience was one very pleasant and helpful man at the PDX location that was able to make my pick up process work.Cons: Booked through a third party company because of an excellent deal ($400 for a 3 week rental), and was told to pick my car up at 12:00 at the downtown PDX location. I arrived promptly at 12:00 and the doors were locked, lights turned off. A printed sign on the door said their hours were 9-12 on Saturday, while the hours printed onto the actual door said 9-2. Had I known they closed at the same time as my selection I would have certainly arrived earlier, but there were selection times later in the day and didn't even to check their closing time. I called the Hertz hotline and was told I could go to the PDX airport to pick up my car there, at no extra cost as the closure wasn't typical. At the airport I was told that not only would I not get the price I had secured, it would be 3x as much ($1200+), but they didn't have any cars available anyway. After 2.5 hours on the phone with both Hertz and the 3rd party booking, who still told me I would now have to pay 3x the amount I was anticipating paying, I finally went to the PDX location when they opened on Monday to pick up a car. Fortunately the young man working at the desk made it work. I will not be using Hertz again after such a poor experience.
4.0 Okay29 Sep 2020
Cons: I was pretty specific in my search but I was assigned a downtown sore for pickup/drop off. Right in the middle of the protest areas and the homeless camps. It was the wrong vehicle and it only had a 1/4 tank of fuel. While staff attempted to get me another vehicle where I would be staying time was of the essence. I was visiting a dying relative in Lebanon. Hertz tried but Kayak should never have sent me there 72 dollars in addition fees for taxis and Uber. I doubt I’ll search through Kayak again.

5.6 Okay9 Sep 2020
Pros: A staff called me to explain that no car was availableCons: Hertz let me reserve a car at the PDX airport for the Labor Day weekend, confirming the reservation a couple of days ahead of time. Shortly before arrival at the airport, they called me to say that they did NOT have a car, and that the reservation was able to be made due to a "glitch" in their system.
2.0 Mediocre22 Aug 2020
Pros: No the place we rented from is no longer in business. And yet you still took our money and sent us to that location. Apparently our time and money is worthless? We had to uber to a second hertz and have them rent us a car.Cons: actually rent cars from locations that still exist. Despicable business practice.
10.0 Excellent13 May 2020
Pros: Staff were helpful and the drop off was easy.Cons: The car storage area was slightly unclear, however the staff made up for this with communication
3.2 Mediocre14 Apr 2020
Pros: The whole experience was horrible. The car not breaking down was the only good part of it.Cons: The worst rental experience we've ever had. When picking the car up, we waited an extra hour to even see the car and following that, we were given wrong directions on where the car was (which caused us to walk up and down the parking garage). The car was not washed or filled up with gas. And when we brought it back two days later, there were no instructions or dropbox to leave the keys. So we just left the keys in the car and will never use Hertz again.

When to book a car hire in Portland

Top tips for hiring 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.
