What kind of Dollar rental car should I get for my trip to Portland?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Portland. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Portland trip can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

You are required to have insurance before you rent from Dollar in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

Do I have to return my Dollar rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up.
