What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Portland?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Portland. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Portland vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.

Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
