Great staff: flexible and accommodating
Pros: Snowy road conditions made it hard to travel in the 2WD car we rented; they allowed us to turn it in several hours late (to allow as much time as possible for the snow to melt) without additional charge.

Hertz was over-booked and cancelled my reservation!
Cons: Due to high demand over the 4th of July weekend, Hertz in Eugene was cancelling any reservation that wasn't picked up within 1 hour of the reservation's "pick-up time"... Unbelievable. First time I've ever seen this happen. I had made the reservation months in advance. The reservation system won't even let you set a specific pick-up time, only the hour of the day. Just a warning to other travelers to be careful about this on high-demand holidays.

Pros: Once I learned how to drive the Hundai it was a fairly easy to drive.
Cons: No one showed me how to work the car. I had never driven a Hundai before and it was very different from cars I am used to. Luckily I was able to stop an employee and she showed me how various things worked.

We Don't Have Anything Else to Offer in Your Class
Cons: Guy offered me a car with 1/4 tank of gas. I asked for a car with more gas so I din't have to go straight to the gas station, but was told they didn't have ANYTHING else. Went out to get the car and saw that my car had no hubcaps. Requested something more "together looking...like the exact same car next to it in white with hubcaps!" Note. Remember they didn't have ANYTHING else? Oh...and it had 3/4 of a tank of gas! The whole experience was lacking in proper customer service. I'm sure the guy renting to me is planning his personal exit from the business and doesn't care. No thanks, HERTZ, I'll use Enterprise and let them try to up sell me rather than deal with this flunky location.

DO NOT RENT FROM HERTZ!! THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CAR FOR ME
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: I made my reservation in March but when we arrived in Eugene on June 6 - they did not have a car for me leaving us stranded at the airport. They basically told us too bad - and did nothing to help us out. We couldn't even get a cab on such short notice - there was a 2 hour wait. Anyway - a random, single cab just happened to pull up and was able to get us to the dealership 20 minutes before it closed. $40 in cab fare and an additional $250 later (for the same day, emergency rental from a dealership) we had a car. Fast forward to drop off - our flight was at 6 am and the dealership was closed which then left us stranded at the dealership unable to get to the airport. Luckily - we have very good friends who agreed to get up at 3 am to pick us up and take us to the airport. DO NOT RENT FROM THIS COMPANY. They have no problem leaving you high and dry. To be fair - they did offer a discounted voucher for our next Hertz Rental. I told them no thanks. There will not be a next Hertz Rental.

Pros: Nice little car, fairly reasonable price
Cons: The communication with the people who worked there was atrocious. They told me the wrong date and time to bring the car back (but listed the correct time on the contract), misquoted me the price for towing insurance, would not answer the phone when I called to make a change to my rental, did not record the change I had made by phone, and tried to charge me twice for everything. I don't usually write negative reviews but this service merits one.

Eugene office needs some customer service training
Pros: The car was fairly new, easy to access, the drop off facility at the Portland Airport was awesome
Cons: The counter rep at the Eugene office wa rude, incorrect on several issues and made hiring the car difficult. She seemed to not be able to stand up ever, but sat there ordering me around from the back of her computer screen. The car smelled of smoke and we are non-smokers

Pros: I thought the Hyundai Accent was roomy for its size and I was able to get 35 miles per gallon. I wasn't expecting much from the Hyundai but it was actually quite fun to to drive. Power was fairly good for a small engine car. Picking up and dropping the car off with Alamo was very easy at the Eugene Airport. We were in a rainforest in Oregon and the tires were good, never felt any slippage. Thank you Alamo keep up the good work

Very hard sell on unnecessary additions
Cons: Bad customer service. Very hard sell on unnecessary additions when I picked up the car. Verged on untruthfulness. I won't rent from Alamo again. Parking area unlit making finding the car very difficult on a rainy dark night. Incorrect color of car on paperwork making pickup unnecessarily confusing. I called to have it corrected but never received a callback.

Don't trust reservation cost!
Cons: I reserved a car for a cheap price, but when I got there, the price had raised significantly. After a long discussion with the employee, he begrudgingly granted me a small discount, but it was nowhere near my original reservation price. When you make a reservation, you assume you are reserving the price too, not just the car. Don't trust the original cost estimate at all.

Pros: The staff at both the airport and downtown were courteous and helpful, but the set-up of site connections is misleading and expensive.
Cons: "Off site" should come with more explanation. Typically, I would expect a free shuttle to exist from the airport to the off-site location; insted it cost as much as the 3 day car rental itself...ridiculous.

Cons: Rented car on line as we always do flying into Eugene and was informed at the desk that the car was not located at the airport; that my options were to rent there at DOUBLE the price; or rent a cab to go downtown to get a car there; no offers to help out in anyway. Wanted RAV got a Suburban - geesh

Great Car, Great service!
Pros: Great Car...fast pickup. I was out the door within 5 minutes. The weather was horrible (sleet/ice) so getting in the car and out of town to head south was really important to me. The car (a Tahoe) was brand new and a great choice for this type of weather. I really loved that there was no drop fee on my one way trip to Medford. Staff at both locations were great and efficient. Highly recommend.

Management problems
Pros: We got upgraded to a kia Sorento. We really enjoyed the vehicle, very comfortable, good gas milage.
Cons: The vehicle was not on-site when we arrived; they had to go get it. The price we paid was not the price stated when we made the reservation on-line. When we pointed out the discrepancy, the agent said she would figure it out and call us after we were on our way. She did not do this at any time. The vehicle was not clean when we when it was rented to us, outside or inside. Finally, several other people were in the place when were were waiting for our vehicle; two left in quite a huff. One said that their whole trip was ruined and the other said that they did not live up to what was promised or agreed to. Someone ended up picking her up rather than in a rental.

Pros: The 4runner was perfect for my trip.

Anyways I called in to check and apparently my reservation was moved to another location that closed right at 12pm, and i wouldn't have been able to pick my car up until the next day. I had to pay an EXTRA $100 to move it to another location. Not cool.

Top tips for renting a car in Eugene

  • A hire car is the perfect way to explore not only Eugene, but also other jaw-dropping locations in Oregon that are within reach. A car will give you the advantage of navigating freely across the state without having to depend on public transportation, allowing you to either go west to the Oregonian coast with its wild beaches, or east towards the many national forests of the Cascade Range, including Willamette National Forest, which is a 30-minute drive from Eugene.
  • Most of the big car hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, and Enterprise, can be found at Eugene Airport (EUG), also known as Mahlon Sweet Field, which is less than 12 miles northwest of the city center. The car hire desks are situated within the terminal – just follow the Baggage Claim signs and then take a right. The hire cars are typically parked across the street from the main entrance.
  • Navigating Eugene is pretty straightforward, and you’ll be able to reach most places surrounding the city with a GPS. If you’re driving in the winter, remember you will most likely need good snow tires and chains. Oregon’s highways have “Snow Zone” signs, which indicate the current chain and traction tires’ requirements, so keep an eye out for those. If you’re driving in the rain or snow, allow yourself more time to get to places and be extra alert.
  • Eugene is one of the least congested cities in the country, but you will still see more people on the roads during morning rush hour (between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m.), when people go to work and parents drop off their kids, and then again after 5 p.m., as everyone heads home. The I-5 towards Portland can get quite crowded too, so make sure you plan your journey in advance if you’re either heading there or driving from there to Eugene.
  • Book your rental car in Eugene at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
