29 Jul 2019
Pros: The location is super convenient. Everything is done through the counter including drop off which is unlike other locations.
Cons: It would be nice if the drop off had at least one person there to assist. Overall pricing is very high compared to rentals I have had in the past or renting in Bar Harbor.

Pros: The staff at the pickup counter was great, friendly and helpful. Only glitch: he said he'd activated satellite radio, but it never worked.
Cons: There's no attendant for dropoff and the signage is lacking, but overall, easy enough. The gal at the return counter was pretty unfriendly: unresponsive and if she ever smiled, I missed it.

18 Nov 2019
Cons: The way they do the gas is confusing. They make you guess up front how much gas you're going to use. Why not just give you a full tank and have you pay at market price for the amount you use?

Maine
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The car worked perfect for what I needed and didnot think it was over priced. I will add again the staff was great there very very nice.
Cons: I did not like that I had to take a shuttle from the airport. My big problem is when I dropped my car off I had a flight to catch, but I had to wait att he enterprise store which is 5 miles from the airport for the shuttle to return. I ended up having to wait 15 minutes.

17 Oct 2016
Pros: The people at the Bangor location were very nice - although I have to once again say that I have never had a better experience than what we have come to expect from Lance Reardon at your Ellsworth facility ...Lance is THE man!!!
Cons: It is a very minor thing to mention, but I dislike when I get a car that has less than a full tank - it is easy to fill up before returning but I invariably overfill when I was given a car that was 3/4 or less

Chaos
Pros: New car
Cons: Had rented an intermediate level car for fuel efficiency for the long one way drive. After waiting 30+ minutes for the rental shuttle to come to airport, we were taken to a dirty building that was chaotic. They didn’t have enough rentals so it was either take the inefficient SUV or wait even longer for another return. The SUV was dirty as well. The return location at Trenton airport lacks signs on the road telling you which lot to drop it off in as well as the prerecorded message when you call the location doesn’t help.

Drop off is slightly confusing
Pros: Everything went well: they were polite and professional and efficient. The car was in great shape and easy to drive. No one tried to scam me and claim I damaged the car weeks after I left it (so far).
Cons: Dropping off at the Bangor airport was a little confusing - there was no one in the rental car return parking lot and all of Budget's parking spaces were full. I had no idea what to do, and they had not given me any direction about drop-off when I rented the car. However, this was easily solved: I just called the number they provided, a live human inside the airport answered, and gave me clear and useful instructions from there.

Left stranded at the airport
Pros: Clerk was very knowledgeable and polite. She was helpful enough to point me to two competitors who were happy to rent vehicles to me (and to upgrade me at no charge).
Cons: Learned upon arrival that the debit card I paid with would not be accepted. After significant back-and-forth I just went to Enterprise. Went $200 over budget but at least I got home.

Terrible
Cons: They wouldn’t let me have the car bc my card I’d prepaid in full with was a MasterCard debit card (instead of a credit card), & also bc my return flight location didn’t match the location I was dropping off the rental car. The man a the counter said he couldn’t refund me, but gave me a 1-800 number to call instead. I spent about an hour on the phone during my vacation trying to get refunded. One time I was on hold for 20 minutes and the lady accidentally disconnected our phone call, so I had to call & go through the entire process again.A rental car company two counters over was more than happy to rent to me with my debit card & return flight that didn’t match the car drop off, with a price considerably less than Avis’s. I will never rent from Avis again.

Top tips for renting a car in Bangor

  • Nothing calls for a hire car quite like the scenic roads of Maine. It is highly suggested that visitors to Bangor take the chance to admire the scenery and there’s no better way than driving the roads yourself. One great option for visitors is to take a drive down to Acadia National Park (43 miles away). Additionally, like many cities in the U.S., private vehicles are by far the most convenient means of transport in Bangor.
  • Looking to rent a vehicle right when you arrive in Bangor? If you are flying into Bangor International Airport, you will find the hire car counters located in adjacent to Baggage Claim on the first floor of the Domestic Terminal.
  • Bangor, like much of Maine, has its fair share of wildlife. It is highly advised that drivers keep their eyes open when driving on rural roads and highways, especially at night. Wildlife appear in higher numbers in the summer and spring, so be particularly cautious during the warmer seasons.
  • Luckily for visitors and commuters in Bangor, traffic in the city is very light. During the work week, drivers can expect to experience a slight increase in congestion around 7:00 a.m., lasting until 9:00 a.m. During the afternoon and evening the traffic picks back up again just around 4:00 p.m. and cools off at around 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. If you are looking to avoid traffic during your time in Bangor, then Main Street and Union Street are the two roads to skirt around during rush hour.
  • Book your rental car in Bangor at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Bangor?

Bangor’s streets are well suited for all sizes of vehicles. Sedans, coupes, SUVs, and even large trucks will all be perfectly comfortable on the road, so all vehicle options are a good choice for renters. Additionally, streetside parking spaces are large enough for even the biggest of hire vehicles, so parking is a non-issue.
