Find Your Way Around Portland Airport

There’s no better way to see the best parts of Portland, OR than in your very own rental car. Why waste time waiting for public transit or calling around for a lift when you can steer to the locations you want to see, when you want to see them? If you’re flying into Portland International Airport (PDX), make your upcoming trip to the Beaver State a special one with a cheap PDX car rental.

Arriving at PDX

Take the underground pedestrian walkway to the airport rental car center, directly across from baggage claim on the parking garage’s bottom floor. PDX is only 12 miles away from downtown Portland, so as soon as you obtain your car rental you’ll be on your way. While many car rentals are located on the airport property, some are off-site, and may require additional transportation to reach. We recommend you contact your preferred provider to inquire about transportation options.

Out & About in Portland, OR

Head for downtown Portland to get a feel for the city’s unique culture. You can easily drive through downtown to pick out the places you’d like to see, or you can park your car rental and walk around. Visit boutiques owned by locals along Everett Street, enjoy a cup of artisanal coffee at one of Portland’s cafes, or pay a visit to the legendary Powell’s City of Books over on West Burnside Street. About 2.5 miles west of downtown is Washington City Park, where the Portland Japanese Garden is housed. This 5.5-acre sanctuary is the perfect place for a calm afternoon spent near a waterfall.
Your Portland airport car rental can take you outside the city, too. Drive 44 miles south along I-5 to reach Salem, OR. Visit the Oregon State Capitol, or embark on a wine-tasting trip—there are a number of wineries within a 10-mile radius of the city. Additionally, you may wish to see the Oregon coastline; if so, drive 88 miles west on OR-6 to Rockaway Beach. Once you’re in this charming beach town, purchase delicious local produce at the Tillamook Farmers Market, hike through the Cedar Old Growth Nature Preserve, and learn about the impact of the sea at the Garibaldi Maritime Museum.

Returning Your Car Rental & Touring the Airport

When you’re ready to head home, return your PDX rental car to the respective car rental company and cross the underground tunnel to the airport’s lone terminal. If you’ve rented a car from an off-site agency, you may need to make additional arrangements to return to the airport.
PDX is the biggest airport in Oregon, and it serves nearly two dozen airlines, among them American and Alaska. You may wish to reach the airport particularly early, as there is an array of stores for you to browse located behind its ticketing counters, and even more beyond the security line. Do some last-minute shoe shopping, or purchase some baked goods so you’ll have a snack on the plane. You can also enjoy a variety of fast food and sit-down establishments.

Rent a Car in Oregon

Why spend a lot of time waiting for taxis or for public transit schedules to align with yours? Take charge of your trip by browsing for the perfect vehicle. Whether you’re looking for a compact sedan to take to the coastline or a spacious SUV to load up with books from Powell’s, we offer a variety of PDX car rentals to help you make the most of your Portland vacation.
