10.0 Excellent13 Jun 2021
Pros: The staff was nice while picking up the car. I didn't have to wait in a long line either.Cons: Overall, the cost with all the fees added was a bit high. I would probably reconsider doing a rental car versus just using Uber in the future.
10.0 Excellent3 Aug 2020
Pros: Drop off was so fast!Cons: Pickup had a long line.
10.0 Excellent5 Jul 2020
Pros: My flight got delayed by a full day and Kayak was no help. But I was able to call the Alamo desk directly and they fixed everything! The car I rented was perfect for my needs and the price was right!
10.0 Excellent21 Jan 2020
Pros: cool little car and worked great for my needs
9.6 Excellent11 Dec 2019
Pros: The staff was very friendly, fast and helpfulCons: People had parked their cars along the side of the parking lot making it tricky to maneuver around them. Not your fault but maybe some no parking signs along the sides of your lot
6.8 Good3 Dec 2019
Pros: Staff was fine. Dropoff site poorly defined, couldn't find it, which lead to disastrous problems. All of the other car rental agencies have clearly marked paths to their return sites at PDX. ALAMO's sign is low and poorly lit and when your attention is directed to the overhead signs reading "rental car returns", it's very easy to miss.
7.2 Good18 Nov 2019
Pros: Fast and easy serviceCons: The car we got had some mechanisms not working
10.0 Excellent22 Oct 2019
Pros: The employee was very helpful and friendly. I appreciate that Alamo would take a debit card with proof of return flight, made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. The car was perfect for what we needed.

Pros: Yes everyone was great friendly and smiling and very helpfulCons: Nothing in my opinion everything was perfect.

9.6 Excellent30 Oct 2020
Pros: The 6th Ave staff was very helpful at pickup. When I arrived to pickup a car, several other customers were there too. The staff kept working until after 5 to adequately take care of everyone. The staffer helping me gave me good advice on a full size upgrade as I'd reserved an economy car that wouldn't perform sufficiently in the mountains where I was headed. At dropoff, I accidentally went to the 11th Ave location. The fellow there was very agreeable about checking the Dodge Charger in for me, and it was so very quick.
4.8 Okay13 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and the drop-off process was quick and easy.Cons: Pickup took 50 minutes. I had a confirmed booking for an economy car, but after a long wait, I received a mini-van. The van had a significant amount of dog hair in the rear seat, and only a quarter tank of gas.
4.8 Okay24 Aug 2020
Cons: There was no pick up after reserving a pick up
2.0 Mediocre16 Jun 2020
Cons: Told me they wouldn't do a pick-up or drop-off unless it was for an insurance claim. Ran my card for more than the agreed-upon amount causing it to be declined. Once I got that cleared up they said they can only run the card once per day. Asked if they can break a 20 so I can get change for the bus to go down to Avis, and they said they had no cash. Thanks for nothing
5.2 Okay25 May 2020
Pros: Drop-off couldn't have been better - quick and friendly staff.Cons: Woman at pick-up was rude. Acted like every action was a burden. Car was dirty.
9.2 Excellent24 Oct 2019
Cons: Damage to the passenger front hubcap was significant, but not noted. It took time to stand in line at Eugene and to have the damage documented so I wasn’t liable. Additionally a dedicated desk agent would have sped up the process
8.4 Excellent30 Aug 2019
Pros: Everything was great, fast, and friendly. The kayak price beat there's massively.Cons: It wasn't clear that the car would not be at the airport, but at a downtown location that was a $20 uber ride away because there was not shuttle. We got conflicting information about where we could drop off the car, and whether or not there would be an extra charge.
8.8 Excellent29 Jul 2019
Pros: YesCons: The cost has varied.
10.0 Excellent11 Jul 2019
Pros: Fast, friendly, professional - as alwaysCons: Enterprise is my favorite car rental agency.
8.4 Excellent9 Jul 2019
Pros: yesCons: lower prices as per other companies. my fault for waiting. did not appreciate a phone call from the agency asking if all was good, during my trip. the staff was great though.

10.0 Excellent15 Jun 2021
Pros: Yes, all staff were friendly, the car was in good shape and drop off was very easy.
6.0 Good23 Mar 2021
Pros: Got the car pretty quickly once I got there. The gentleman was polite and kind.Cons: I was not aware that the car would not be available at the Hertz in the airport. This was nowhere to be found in the paperwork. I had to take an Uber to a Hertz 7 miles out and return the car there too, so I paid about $50 in addition to the rental cost. The car I was given was a minivan, not a sedan as agreed. We were told that's all they had. It was unwashed and had a missing hub cap top.
8.0 Excellent7 Dec 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: The insurance coverage was too high and expensive.
2.0 Mediocre14 Sep 2020
Pros: NothingCons: They closed early and didn't notify me so I didn't get my rental car
2.0 Mediocre5 Jul 2020
Cons: The Hertz staff said there was no car for me when I showed up. I was polite and asked if there was anything that could be done, as I clearly had the reservation. They said no and didn’t offer any assistance of any kind. I was very surprised and disappointed.
8.4 Excellent19 Nov 2019
Pros: The car was new, and clean, and the staff was great to work with!Cons: I had not realized just how terrible the gas mileage on a Jeep was- we ended up spending a LOT more on gas than our previous trip to Oregon, despite actually driving less...
4.0 Okay13 Aug 2019
Pros: Car was not available at time promised, this cost me additional time & $. I spoke to Hertz three times in the am and eventually took a cab when the car when arrived. The manager who i had spoken to that morning didn't have my reservation and was a condescending. Nothing offered for the incoveinence.Cons: Respectful service
8.4 Excellent27 Jul 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: They waited until entire transaction was complete and then one of the staff ran out back to clean and wash car, I waited 20 minutes. Why not wash cars when they are returned? This was the only downturn to the rental experience
7.2 Good28 Jun 2019
Pros: Staff were friendly and helpful. The additional driver and other services were too pricey compared with other dealerships we have dealt with. The return was very efficient and satisfactory.Cons: Hertz could be more competitive.

8.0 Excellent18 Jul 2017
Pros: They didn't have the size vehicle we reserved so they upgraded us to a size up for free.Cons: When I booked the rental I put down the airport I wanted to pick up at and drop off at. When we arrived in Eugene we found out that they booked our rental off site and had to take a taxi to get our rental.
2.0 Mediocre14 Jul 2017
What customer service.Cons: I flew into Eugene, Or. on July 4th. Arrived at Avis counter and was informed my rental was not from the airport location. He turned away and would not help me ! I rented a taxi to the other site and found it CLOSED for the holiday. I had to use the taxi to get into town and still had no car.
3.6 Mediocre18 May 2017
Pick up location was 5 miles from airportCons: Thought I was renting from Avis at the airport. Found out my pickup location was 5 miles AWAY from airport. Airport location wouldn't honor pricing of other location. Extremely inconvenient - had to take a taxi to puck up my car! Won't rent from them again!
3.6 Mediocre13 Feb 2017
MisleadingPros: NothingCons: Price seemed like a great deal, but when you realize the facility is not at the airport and add in the cost of transport to and from the facility, ended up more than renting direct with Avis by a significant amount.

10.0 Excellent18 Nov 2020
Pros: The car pick-up at Eugene Municipal Airport (EUG) was very friendly. Especially, the young lady (Amber) at the Dollar Rent Counter at the airport was very helpful. She upgraded our car on our request with reasonable additional charge. This change made our long journey from Eugene, OR to Los Angeles, CA very comfortable.Cons: Ref: Rental Record # 596198282; Vehicle: 2019 Chevrolet IMPALA License: CA 8JBG642 Car has in-built GPS, which was quite handy to go to different locations. But for a number new locations it didn't work as it was not updated. For example, it could not navigate us to some new locations in Folsom, CA. So we used our cellphone to drive to those locations. (GPS needs to be updated) The car drop-off was at LAX airport. We drop the car at the shown location. But it was difficult to locate the Dollar drop-off as there was no clear sign and we were in hurry to do it because the drop-off location was not in the airport. Shuttle takes the passenger from that location to the airport. We could see the Hetz sign only. However, on advised of the present staff we park the car at a location and left the car key inside the car as told. As per agreement, before handing over the car there, we filled the tank completely with the gas. The tank was full. (We wish if we could have some kind of written receipt for it. That the staff has taken the car in the same condition as it was handed to us. Gas tank is full, and we owe nothing.)
7.2 Good1 Sep 2020
Pros: Exactly what we needed for our long trip cross country. Perfect.Cons: Car could have been cleaned better particularly since it had the enhanced sticker on the door. We had to do extra cleaning.

Management problemsPros: 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.

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.

Top tips for hiring 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

FAQs about hiring a car in Eugene

  • Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car rental companies in Eugene are Alamo (8.8, 64 reviews), Enterprise (8.3, 125 reviews), and Hertz (7.5, 128 reviews).

  • The average price of fuel in Eugene is $4.84 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between $58 and $77, depending on the car size.

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • A mid-sized sedan is a good option for travelers wanting to drive through Eugene and towards the coast. If you’re planning on heading to the mountains and lakes, and especially if you’re with family or a group of friends, an SUV might be the best option. In the winter, a four-wheel drive is especially recommended.

  • The speed limit within the city is usually 25 miles per hour (mph), but it may be as low as 15 mph in certain residential areas, so keep an eye out for posted signs. Most open rural highways have a speed limit of 55 mph, and interstate highways have speed limits that range between 65 mph and 70 mph.

  • The average petrol prices in Greenville are approximately $2.90 per gallon. Lower prices can range anywhere between $2.41 and $2.79 per gallon. If you’re planning on embarking on longer journeys or if you’re heading to more remote locations, make sure you fill up the tank before taking off.

  • The City of Eugene offers the first hour of parking free of charge, as well as weekends, in any of the many Overpark and Parkade parking garages downtown, such as the Public Library one. The rates thereafter are $1 per hour and $6 per day. Street parking meters operate from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and they charge about $1.20 for 60 minutes and $6 for five hours.
