Top tips for hiring a car in Oregon

  • If you want to arrange Oregon car hire, your best option is to check out the car hire agencies in major cities, such as Portland, Eugene, and Salem. Better still, all three cities have airports and typically airports provide the most options in terms of car hire agencies, as well as extensive ranges of brands and car types for you to choose from. Agencies that are based at airports such as Portland International Airport (PDX), Eugene Airport (EUG) and Salem McNary Field Airport (SLE) can offer the most competitive deals, so they’re always the best places to start your search.
  • When hiring a vehicle and travelling as a family in Oregon, if you have young children, remember you will need to arrange for an appropriate child seat to be fitted in the car. Children under 2 years old are required to be secured in a rear-facing child safety seat, as this provides better head protection in the event of a crash. If your child is between 2-4 years of age, they can be secured in a forward-facing child seat that includes a harness. Booster seats should be used for children that are under 4 feet 9 inches tall, typically between 8-12 years old.
  • If you’re thinking of heading across the US-Canada border when you’re arranging Oregon car hire, then be sure to include this in your initial agreement with the chosen car hire agency. Many major car hire companies in Oregon do allow drivers to take their rental vehicles over the US-Canada border. However, this often comes with certain restrictions and additional fees. It's important to check with the specific hiring company to understand their policies, requirements, and any extra costs associated with crossing the border. Additionally, make sure you have all the necessary documentation, such as passports, visas, and any required permits for international travel.
  • After sorting out your Oregon car hire, and driving around the state for the first time, make sure you familiarise yourself with the local driving laws, keeping within the speed limits which are typically 65-70 mph on the motorways. You must carry proof of insurance in the vehicle along with your licence and rental agreement, should you be stopped by authorities at any stage of your journeys. The winters can get harsh in this region, so be sure to drive carefully and have the appropriate equipment, such as tyre chains, for snowy conditions. And finally, filling up your own vehicle at the petrol station is illegal in Oregon, so leave this up to an attendant.
