Important information about Portland car hire

When booking hired cars in Portland, a popular spot to check out is the Oregon Zoo. With its location just a couple of miles to the southwest of the center of the city, it is easily accessible by car. In addition to several animal species housed in the zoo, there's also a wide range of plants in both animal exhibits and specialized gardens. Another popular spot is the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, which includes a planetarium and several hands-on exhibits that specialize in the natural sciences, as well as industry and technology. Both I-5 and I-205 travel north and south through the city while Hwy 26 and I-84 are the major east-west routes in the area. While street parking can sometimes be difficult to find for rental cars in Portland, several lots do offer free parking. There are around 10 car hire locations in Portland, so finding a cheap car rental in Portland is easy.

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Portland?

Before picking up your car rental in Portland, it is important to remember that like any major city there are times during the day where driving can be difficult. On most afternoons driving can be congested, especially heading north on I-5 out of the city and east on I-84. One of the great things about this area is its easy access to both the mountains and the coast. For Portland car rentals, the drive to the ski areas found on Mount Hood just east of Portland and the coastal communities like Canon Beach and Newport of the Oregon Coast are both about an hour away by car. While central Portland is very walkable, most of the things you want to see and do in Portland are rather spread out and will require a car. Portland does offer both buses and light rail trains as part of their public transportation options, but these are geared more towards commuters going to and from work central, and they generally don't make a good mode of transportation for visitors to the area looking to see the sights.

Can I drive into Canada with a rental car from Portland?

Portland rental car companies will allow you to take the car to another state with no restrictions. You may also take your Portland car rentals into Canada with no restrictions, but you should let the rental car company know in advance; they will provide you with a Canadian non-resident insurance card at no cost. Some car hire locations in Portland even offer the option of one-way rentals to some Canadian cities. Most rental car companies in Portland will not let you take vehicles into Mexico.

Can you hire a car in Portland without a credit card?

There are generally two options for hiring a car in Portland without a credit card. If you plan to use a debit card, you can do so, but there are some limitations. For starters, there may be a limit on what type of car you can rent with a debit card. There will also be a substantial hold placed on your card during the time you have your rental. Beyond that, in most cases, your name will need to be on the debit card, and you'll probably need to be at least 25 years old to rent the car. If you are renting from an airport location, they will generally want to see a return airline ticket that is on the same date that you return the car. If you want cheap hired cars in Portland with cash payments only, it is important to know that you will probably need to put down a very large deposit for the car. If you want to go this route, try a smaller rental car company, which may have more flexible rental policies than the major rental car companies.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Portland?

Since Portland is a community where many people travel either by bike or on foot, it is important when you are in the center of the city to be aware of these travelers when booking hired cars in Portland. This is especially true when you are making turns on city streets where bikes and pedestrians can quickly appear. One thing to keep in mind when driving in hired cars in Portland, Oregon is that you should generally treat a yellow light the same as a red light. The only time you can go through a yellow light is if you cannot stop safely at the yellow light in your electric car rental. Another thing to keep in mind is that because Oregon has so many cloudy and rainy months, pedestrians are often dressed in several layers of dark clothing that can make them difficult to spot, so use caution when approaching intersections in Portland. If you see an emergency vehicle, you must slow down your people carrier rental and attempt to move one lane away from the vehicle. All passengers in a cheap car rental must use seatbelts, and children weighing less than the specified weight must sit in an approved child seat. It is also important to note that you may not park a car in any bicycle lane in Portland.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Portland?

If you are travelling to Portland from a country other than the United States, you will need to present a valid driving license from your home country that includes your photograph. In addition, most rental car companies will want to see a second form of identification, such as a passport. It will also be helpful to have an international driver's permit with you if your license is not in the English language, although this is generally not required to rent a car. A professional, typewritten letter that translates your license into English is an acceptable substitute for an international driver's permit.
