KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Astoria

  • Using car rentals in Astoria over public transportation offers several benefits. Car rentals provide flexible itineraries, allowing you to explore your most desired places while spending as much time at the locations as you want. With no public transportation restrictions, you can also enjoy the ease of traveling with luggage, regardless of the weight or number of bags. Additionally, your comfort will be enhanced, and you will have control over certain things, including the vehicle temperature, music, and space. With Astoria car rentals, you can reach multiple destinations during your trip. Some destinations you can explore in Astoria include Astoria Colum, Fort Stevens State Park, and Fort Clatsop National Memorial.
  • If visiting Astoria, you will likely fly into Portland Airport (PDX). PDX has car rental agencies with offices on-airport and off-airport. The rental counters of on-site car rental agencies are in the main terminal building. Follow the pick-up sign to Level 1 of the short-term parking garage to pick up the rental car. Off-airport car rental agencies provide a complimentary shuttle at Island 2 to transport you to the off-site rental car center. To be eligible for a car rental, you must be at least 21. You must present a valid driver's license, which must remain valid during the entire period, and a credit or debit card.
  • When using car rentals in Astoria, you must practice courteous driving, as done by the drivers in the town. You can achieve this by maintaining a slow speed in residential areas and around school zones, using turn signals, and giving room to merging vehicles. Astoria is a pedestrian- and bike-friendly town with bike lanes, cycling paths, and crosswalks. You must be cautious when driving, yield to pedestrians when crossing, and be considerate of cyclists.
  • Using car rentals in Astoria can be challenging due to the heavy traffic in the area, especially during peak tourist travel seasons, particularly from June to August. The rush hours are typically noticed in the morning from 7:30 am to 9 am and in the evening from around 4:30 pm to 6 pm. Heavy traffic caused by rush hour commonly affects significant routes, including U.S. Route 30, Commercial Street, and State Route 202. Consider using routes such as Old Highway 30, Jerome Avenue, and Lewis and Clark Road to bypass the routes with massive traffic. Fall in Astoria may present a driving challenge since it experiences fair amounts of rain and fog, leading to slippery roads and reducing visibility.
  • Book your car hire in Astoria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Astoria are around 14% more expensive than other car types, on average

When I was on KAYAK looking for a car, the website said I could pick up the car at Terminal 2 of Malpensa Airport in Milan. Nope. Had to go to Terminal 1. Had to ask the SIXT agent at T2 where DRIVALIA agent and pickup was located. That was embarrassing. One-way drop-off was OK, but had to search for a DRIVALIA agent to inspect the car and give the keys to. The agent office is on the opposite end of the airport from the rental car return, so did a lot of walking. Also, just received an email invoice for a "One-Way Charge". I thought the price I paid online included ALL charges, as I checked the One-Way box on the website application. Will be calling DRIVALIA (and maybe KAYAK) about that one. The car was really nice.

Pros:

upgrade to suv - however the negatives do not outweigh this perk

Cons:

even though i was contacted ahead of time for credit card/dl info etc which was supposed to expedite the process - I still waited over 1 hour to get a vehicle. I had also asked specifically where the shuttle van from the cruise ship to the car rental location would be - and was assured that it would be very easy to locate once getting off the ship. There were NO signs, persons or any other means of direction to locate the shuttle van which was not even identified by decals or signage of any kind. I was also charged for the rental and the prepayment amounts. The prepayment was supposed to be reversed when the vehicle was returned - but was not. I was told it can take up to 3-5 business days for that to happen - yet the actual rental charge took zero days to appear on my card.

I made reservations for pick up on Saturday. I got a ride from a friend to pick up at 5 Star Aberdeen. Upon arrival, the door posted, “Closed, Saturday and Sunday”. When making the reservations on Kayak, why would it take the reservation or even give me one to a location that’s closed?!? I had a confirmation number and everything. I then had to ask the same friend to drive me an hour away to Olympia, AVIS. Thank god they were open. Hertz, also has the dumbest call center. They don’t give you an option to talk to anyone. The automated phone just keeps saying to go to the website for changes and answers? How and why? I needed live updates on what to do at that moment. No website is going to give me live updates….disappointed in KAYAK. Unacceptable.
