What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Portland Avis car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Portland?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Portland's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Portland is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Avis's policy to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Portland?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Portland. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in Portland are around 30 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Portland trip can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Portland?
Portland's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Portland.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Portland?
Avis typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
