  • There are many forms of payment accepted for a car rental at Portland Airport (PDX). However, the most preferred means of payment is by credit card. You can pay for your Portland Airport car rental with a major credit card, including American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover Network. Debit cards with the MasterCard and Visa logos will also be accepted at most rental counters.
  • If you plan to have an additional driver, they must be present when taking your car rental at Portland Airport. Both of you must meet the driver’s license and age requirements before you are presented with the rental car of your choice. Most rental companies at Portland Airport will charge a daily fee for the additional driver. However, if your other driver is your spouse or domestic partner, you won’t incur charges if they meet the age and driver’s license requirements.
  • The Interstate 205 is one of the major roads in Portland, connecting downtown Portland to PDX. It is also among the busiest roads in Portland during rush hour, in the mornings and afternoons when people are heading to and from work. Hence, picking up or dropping off your car rental at Portland Airport may be difficult during these periods, so organize your schedule to operate outside these busy periods for a more relaxed experience.

Pros:

The pickup staff did their best in a bad situation (limited cars). The return staff was very helpful and friendly.

Cons:

The terminal counter was closed and there weren't enough clerks in the garage area, to which we were redirected. They ran out of mid-sized cars and they initially wanted to put me in a tiny, Yugo-looking, thing. I pushed hard and got a Jeep; great. Upon returning it, the clerk noted some dings on the roof. I assured her, that I'd not placed anything up there nor parked under a tree or awning. I also noted the pickup clerk had not checked the roof, so there was no way to know when the supposed damage (I couldn't see any dings) occurred. They nonetheless sent me a damage report and it was only after pushing back that they waived it "because you're such a valued customer." Yeah, right. All in all, a pretty frustrating experience.

Pros:

Cons:

Signage for check-in could be better. Signs coming from the airport terminal lead you to one place and then there are signs there redirecting to garage for check-in. The temp signs in use could be place better.

Line was long to pick up. Drop off was super easy. Car was somewhat clean. According to the mileage it was brand new, but did not seem brand new. Value was great and affordable. Wish I would have know it was a base model with out some of the luxuries. Will rent again just might upgrade to a model with more luxuries.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing. Worst rental experience of my life. Car was dirty upon pickup. Had to make a few changes to my itinerary and their customer service line was busy or disconnected. It automatically more than doubled my charges. When I left a poor review at Avis, I was contacted by a customer service manager who said he would credit me back $200...and after 3 follow up emails over the course of 2 weeks, he has not responded. Horrible company

Cons:

Absolutely everything. Terrible experience and will never rent from them again

Car was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. ONCE THEY STAFFED THE COUNTER PROPERLY FOR THE REZ LOAD. It took literally 2 hours in line to pick up car. Two agents for Avis / budget combined with at least 70 people in queue. After hour and half , 3 agents arrived and helped solve it. But missed an afternoon of touring planned. I have traveled for 45 years and it was worst pickup line delay i have ever experienced. Not agents fault but mgr should be aware of rez load with flights info.

Mystery car: is a medium size [not small] pickup truck. Awkward, bulky, hard to park. Returning the truck was the biggest problem. I followed the Budget signs till they ran out, and couldn't find the return bay. I asked for help and was told "over there" repeatedly. Staff finally said "just leave it here, we'll take care of it."

Cleanliness was very poor, there was trash from prior rental, steering weel was sticky, and overall dirty interior. Value would be better if the car was well kept, but when you calculate the added cost of having to rent at the airport with the condition of the vehicle it is not a good value.

PDX has rental pick ups left unmarked, leaving you guessing where to go. When you finally get to Thrifty, you then will likely have to leave your stuff and go back downstairs. They didn’t give me the car I requested, and because of it I ran out of miles before my destination. I had to stop to charge the EV - it cost me $50 to get enough juice to get me to where I was going, and then Thrifty charged me again for being undercharged. Terrible experience.

Pick up was a nightmare, got sent back and forth up and down to 2 different floors, eventually got sent to a pick up area and was told 'go to area 3'. We go and there's nobody there...we come back...'which car is ours'...and are told 'just take any car'. So we take a car that is the size we wanted, are told it's fine then as we leave the parking lot, a woman scans the car and tells us it's not driveable, so we have to go back in and find another car and rinse and repeat. It was a pretty poor experience, par for the course with hertz.

We came an hour early from our pickup time and had to wait a 15 minutes or so to get the minivan as it was upstairs. The driver was not the friendliest.
