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.
