Top rated cars in Portland, OR
As the saying goes, Portland is where young people go to retire — and let’s just be clear that this is the most active kind of retirement imaginable.
Book yourself a car on Turo so when you’re done tasting your way around the largest city in Oregon, wandering into art and music shows, and biking through green spaces, you can revel in the great outdoors just a stone’s throw away.
Each quadrant of Portland has a slightly different take on the perfect record store, cup of coffee, farmer’s market, and place to stroll with your pooch.
As the world’s largest independent bookstore, anyone with an affinity for the printed word — or any affinity, really — can fall into an IRL wormhole, see favorite authors read, and find used or rare editions.
The intense fandom at Timbers soccer games could fool you into thinking you’re not on American soil, but the popular MLS team puts on a show worthy of their chanting, singing fans.
While Forest Park is the largest urban park in the country, Washington Park may be Portland’s most beautiful. It’s home to the Oregon Zoo, the rose test garden, the Portland Japanese garden, and an archery range.

One of the joys of Portland is how easy it is to leave the city limits. A quick jaunt outside of downtown Portland can take you to paradise — you can make a day trip to sit by the Columbia River or Willamette River, or go backcountry skiing in the peaks of the Cascade Range.Book the perfect car
Drive 75 miles east to find Mt. Hood, the perfect escape no matter the season. Hike and bike the trails, ski the slopes, or boat and swim the rivers and lakes.
Leave the city center and head south to take a tour through Oregon’s wine country. You’ll find some exquisite pinot noirs, delicious food, and beautiful views.
The Oregon coast is stunning, surrounded by gorgeous forest, and only a two-hour journey by car from Portland. Check out Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach and get some taffy in town.
Great setup, very convenient and better cars than you’ll get from the airport rental companies. Will Definitely do this again!
Gas prices made the price to drive expensive but it was a very nice ride and Lam was excellent in communication.
Austin was very helpful when we needed a last minute car rental after being stranded and given the run around by the airport rental companies. He was super easy to set up, pick up, and drop off with. The car is as advertised, and can get you anywhere you want to go. I would 10000% recommend this option to those looking for an easy and affordable experience.
Better than the regular rental companies! Great communication, easy transaction and car was just what we needed. The car wash subscription was a nice extra.
Nice car Easy rental process And only a $25 taxi ride from PDX to the Lux Rental office
The rental process was great & easy however there some quirks with the car as a non-BMW owner.
The entire rental process with Victor and the experience using the vehicle was flawless. Thank you very much!
The rental process was fantastic! Thien was extremely friendly and helpful. The Cayenne was in great condition and a blast to drive. I will definitely be booking with Thien again when in town next and so should you!
This is a fun little cross-over. It was perfect for cruising Portland as well as road trips. Great tech, smooth driving and all the safety features you could ask for. It's a smaller vehicle but will hold everything a couple of people will need. Some of the streets in Portland are narrow and I couldn't imagine driving around in a full size suv! Jessie was great. This was my first time renting from Turo and he was really helpful.
Nearly instant communication was amazing, entire trip was perfect. Smoothest rental process ever
Very comfortable and great on gas. Car was clean and the rental process was very easy.
Every step of the way was 5 stars with CJ. We had a blast in his yellow jeep. It felt brand new, super clean and an easy rental process. We can’t wait to get back to Portland, we’ll definitely be calling on CJ again!!
Excellent rental. Great vehicle for the area. Smooth rental process, pick up very close to airport. Highly recommend Lux Rental and will be using them again next time!
Nice comfortable ride for our family with plenty of trunk space. Good value compared to traditional rental car companies.
The rental car agency left me out to dry, but Lux Rental came through. Would recommend to anyone.
Loc’s rental process was incredibly easy and smooth. We’d love to rent again. Thank you!
This was my first time using Turo…what a great alternative to a corporate rental car agency. Corey was easy to communicate with and gave clear instructions. I will definitely be using Turo again and if you are in the Portland area, you should rent from Corey!
This was our first time using Turo and we had a great experience. Our host Erik was very friendly, efficient, easy to book with and very accommodating. The rental process was easy and the app is easy to use as well. We would definitely use Turo again especially when renting a luxury vehicle because the big rental car companies are too expensive.
Lux Rental was amazing. Accommodated me with my pick up time. The Macan is such a beautiful truck. Will be renting from them again!
Worth the effort and much better service than the traditional Rental car companies. Car was super clean.
Honestly was the easiest car rental process ever! Tiffany was super easy to communicate with and they provide so much value not just the car but lots of maps for hikes and even parking pass. Highly recommend it
We loved the experience of living with the Tesla Model Y for a week. Lux has been super easy to work with and their hours are really convenient. Their proximity to the airport is great, as well, and their prices were surprisingly reasonable, considering the types of vehicles they have. I would 100% rent from them again the next time we come to Portland.
This Mazda was perfect for our vacation travels! We needed a car good on gas that was also big enough to road trip and handle going up the mountains of Oregon. AWD, new tires, clean as if it was just off the showroom floor.. I can’t tell you enough how great an experience it was. Eikeem made the rental process seamless, and I would highly recommend renting with him if you are planning a trip! 10/10!
Fun SUV, Lux Rental team is very easy to deal with, professional and friendly.
This is the first time we’ve used the Turo service for car rental. The process of securing a car for a competitive price went smoothly and we were able to drive a high quality vehicle with a care free pick up and drop off. I will be a dedicated customer to this unique and innovative service.
Friendly/prompt customer service, overall a wonderful experience and would definitely rent from Lux Rental again! There were a few minor issues with the car when we had it…air pressure in tire was low, right turn signal was out, and the alignment seemed a bit off (car pulled to the right a bit). We notified the staff upon our return and they said they would have the car serviced. Again, excellent experience and the competitive prices definitely make it worth it! Getting to ride around in a Maserati for less than the standard run of the mill rental car sedan was a really nice surprise!
Top-notch service. Clean Car. Pick up was a breeze and drop off at the PDX airport was even easier. Loved this rental and 100% would rent it again during my next Portland trip. Sidenote - I prepaid for the gas refuel and cleaning package and it was totally worth it.
Great experience renting from Vincent. Car was perfect for our weekend in Portland. Great communication and very easy pick up and drop off. Would recommend Vincent’s Audi if you are looking for a nice, luxury SUV for your trip.
fisrst experience with turo and one of the best comparing with all other rent companies, the car was clean and affordable price, Loc was very reasonable for all details for pick also for drop, thanks for this amazing experience!
Car was clean and ran great, Rbaeh was accommodating for a last minute reservation after my previous host cancelled. Had a great time driving to sights around Portland!
Thanks Dwight for sharing your vehicle for our Portland trip. It took a while to get used to all the buttons but I think that’s my age showing haha. Picking up and returning the car was very easy. Appreciated the hospitality during the transfer. The vehicle drove well, it was easy to navigate throughout the city. Definitely would recommend you to friends, family and future renters. Hopefully we can re-connect next time I visit. Thank you very much. It was a pleasure.
Fantastic car and an incredible price! Was cheaper than renting an inferior car through the major known brands.
Great car and price! Staff was helpful and and all my questions . Picked up from and to the airport. Will definitely use them when I visit Portland again.
The rental process (pick up and drop off) was smooth and very straightforward. Will definitely rent from here again whenever i am in Portland. This car is so much fun car to drive. It is Elegant, powerful and stands out the crowd🙂.
Bryan was great. He was on time, friendly, and communicative. First time renting on Turo and I was extremely pleased with my rental process. I definit recommend renting with Turo and especially from Bryan.
Loc's Lexus NX was perfect. Great car in like new condition. The process was much easier than using a rental car agency and I got a better car than I ever would have and saved quite a bit of money as well. Will definitely rent from Loc again.
This was my first Turo rental and it was a great experience. Ahmad was wonderful, he responds very quickly and makes the whole experience easy. The car was beautiful, super clean, and a lot of fun to drive. I would much rather rent a car from him then any “normal” car rental company. I will definitely be renting from him again when I come back to Portland.
This was my fourth time using Turo and it was a good experience. Arrangements were easy and problem free. The BMW we rented was awesome and at a very affordable price. Rental cars in Portland were either not available or outrageously expensive. So Turo came through. I have only one complaint and that is that although all arrangements were fully confirmed by Turo I was not contacted by the host Phat Tan at all. I sent four messages and never got a reply. It made me feel a bit uncertain about the arrangement. A simple note of confirmation would have made me feel more comfortable about the rental. That's never happened before. Aside from that it was another excellent Turo experience.
If you want a great comfortable car this car is amazing. Brand new car and the price was right. Alexander made our trip easy and safe. I recommend Alexander's Honda Pilot for great experience.
They were to nice to rent from. Very high quality to price ratio. A bit more business oriented than going to a personal owner, but the prices are great. They are conveniently located too.
Jason and his dad David were great and were prompt. It felt like borrowing a car from friends. Would definitley rent from them again next time I visit Portland! Thanks again for making our trip smooth.
This was my first time using Turo and Zachary was amazing to work with. He answered all my questions promptly and accurately. The vehicle was in excellent condition and there were no issues with it throughout my trip. I highly recommend renting from Zachary if you’re in Portland.
Alex was so great! Made the rental process so easy and responded to any messages within minutes!! I can’t rate him high enough. I feel like we are friends now! LOL 😃
Anthony’s Fiat was perfect for my trip. He was very easy to get in contact with and was ready with the keys for my very early pick up time! I recommend 100%
Rental process was seamless and smooth. Car was perfect. Phat has a great business. only hiccup was at drop off and it was probably my fault as I unintentionally had my rental drop off set later than I needed. There was no one at the office to take the keys when I stopped in at 7 am. I had an 830 flight so I was forced to leave the keys by their door. A drop box would be a good idea for early flight folks...
My trip did not actually occur. My situation did not allow me to pick up the vehicle. I was disappointed I didn't get the chance to drive it though, and since I thought things would work out, I kept my reservation throughout my rental period. However, Victor was extremely understanding of my situation and things worked out in my favor, even though I was out the rental fee. Big thanks to Victor for being cool and professional about the mishap. I hope things worked out in his favor as well. I will use Turo again... for the first time. Lol
This was my first time using Turo and it could not have been simpler. Everything was very easy, and Victor was extremely helpful, have great details, and answered any questions I had right away. I would highly recommend renting through Victor and will look to do so the next time I am in Portland.
Excellent People at Lux- Nice Well Maintained Vehicles. Thanks to y’all at the PDX Lux Location- extremely convenient- and will have a tough time convincing myself to possibly ever rent a vehicle Thru the traditional old school car rental places. Look forward when Lux comes to an airport near you. I never write reviews but this well exceeded my expectations as well as the families. I’ll be using them on business trips as well 100% guaranteed. Thanks y’all The Texas Kennedy’s
Amazing experience with Christian! Super detailed and easy to retrieve/return vehicle. Car was clean and a breeze to drive and navigate with (there’s Apple CarPlay and Christian even left a charger!). If I’m ever back in Portland I would definitely rent from him again. Can’t rave about my experience enough.
This was a great vehicle for our trip to Oregon and I couldn’t recommend it higher! Samantha was a great host and the vehicle itself was comfortable, quick, quiet and roomy. Such a better experience than with a traditional rental car company.
Robert made our trip extra special with his beautiful new Tesla. He was super helpful with every aspect of our rental. We highly recommend Robert and great vehicle!
Daniel is a one-of-a-kind host. I made an error on the rental dates and he went WAY above and beyond and worked with us to help us out. The car was in great shape. Drop off and pick up were flawless. He is the best host we have ever had!!
Great Rental Experience. My trip wouldn't have been the same without Lydia's Jeep. Very easy check in check out.
Yang came in clutch when our previous rental (David D. renting a Prius) cancelled one day before our trip. Yang was easy to work with and very helpful and laid back! Check in/out was simple and the car ran well for the whole week. Thank you Yang!
First time using Turo and I am very impress, I was able to show up to the wedding in style. Lux Rental, was very easy to deal with I was in/out in less than 10 minutes. The only issues was waiting to be picked up at the airport I waited pretty much almost 45 minutes. But other than that it was a smooth transaction. Thank you Lux Rental.
There’s nothing more cinematic than a long PNW coastal drive at your leisure. A trip on Oregon’s Highway 101 delivers you sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, tidepools, and fishing towns.
The beautiful expanse of Eastern Oregon is not to be missed, and where the Wallowa Mountains part for the Snake River Valley, you’ll find the perfect place to let a sports car run wild.
It’s a solid 250-mile journey to Oregon’s only proper national park, but it’s worth the experience of driving the rim of this volcanic crater’s deep blue eye.
