KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Medford

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Medford rent a vehicle for the duration of their time in the city. The main reason for this is that there is no other way to get around town. There are some limited bus routes, but their service is often slow and does not cover the entirety of the city. Also, if you plan on enjoying the natural scenery while you are in Medford, having a hire car of your own is certainly the best way to achieve that.
  • Need to pick up your hire car after arriving in Medford? Travelers landing at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport can find the hire car counters located in the airport’s arrivals area.
  • One thing drivers should keep in mind when driving at night on country roads around Medford is that wildlife is very common in the area. In fact, wildlife such as elk and deer are numerous throughout the whole state of Oregon. While this is not an overly serious concern, it never hurts to be a bit cautious when you are driving late at night on dark roads.
  • Visitors to Medford will be happy to hear that rush hour traffic is not a big deal here. However, there is some degree of congestion during peak hours in the morning, starting at 8:00 a.m. and lasting until 9:00 a.m. Medford’s rush hour congestion pops back up again in the afternoon starting around 4:00 p.m. and then finishes off around 6:00 p.m. Aside from those two periods, though, there is not too much congestion to worry about. Most of the city’s congestion is also limited to Crater Lake Highway, particularly as it nears I-5.
  • Book your car hire in Medford at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Medford are around -27% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Car was clean and at least they had one for me. The gentleman behind the counter was nice.

Cons:

I picked up my car at the Medford airport. There's no signage indicating you have to go inside to pick up the rental, I just happened to walk inside after driving around the rental vehicle lot. I had booked an economy car (small size) and instead got stuck with a big gas guzzler on a 6-hour drive home. So while the initial rental was cheap, with the cost of gas it ended up being more than if I had just rented somewhere else. I was one person traveling by myself; I didn't want or need a massive SUV instead of a standard sedan and I'm not sure why an airport has so much trouble getting a variety of vehicles.

Pros:

The gal at the desk when we picked up was very friendly, professional and helpful.

Cons:

The Medford car rental parking lot could probably use a little reconfiguring of parking spaces allotted to each company. The first signs we saw didn't even list Alamo so it was a bit of an educated guess to just keep walking until we got to our car.

Nice upgrade to a premium 4WD

Vehicles were not available. Myself and 6+ others had to wait almost two hours to receive keys. I spent $300 more on a air ticket to arrive early, woke up at 3:30AM for that flight, then had to wait 2 hours to get a pre-booked rental car.... They dropped the price $40, but it was a trainwreck.

Pros:

Pickup and drop off were easy. The vehicle was an upgrade. The price was excellent.

Cons:

The vehicle had a high tech system built into the dashboard to link with my mobile phone. Unfortunately, it was too comp licated to be intuitively obvious. I had to unlink my phone. There were no instructions. They were probably in the glove box, which was locked. The car key wouldn't open it.

I pre paid for my car rental. When I went to pick up my car rental you ran my credit and said I couldnt have the rental. Ruined my vacation plans. I had a credit freeze in place to to some fraudulent use of my social security number. I was not told that I would need my credit run. I am a Premier Client at Enterprise Car Rental and have never had any issues renting a car. Only reason I went through Hertz is Enterprise wasnt open on weekend to pick my car rental up. I will never rent a car from Hertz ever again or recomend you to anyone. I was treated extremely bad and it caused great embarrassment plus ruined our trip. :-(
