Keep it weird
in Portland

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 Portland car rental alternative on Turo so when you’re done tasting your way around the city, wandering into art and music shows, and biking over bridges, you can revel in the great outdoors just a stone’s throw away.

Portland Favorites

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, but these are the uniting factors that make visitors smile.

Powell’s City of Books

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.

Portland Timbers

The intense fandom at Timbers soccer games could fool you into thinking you’re not on Ameican soil, but the popular MLS team puts on a show worthy of their chanting, singing fans.

Food truck pods

Other cities have food trucks, but not in the intentionally curated pods that have popped up in all corners of the city, so that you can get a side of poutine with your Italian sandwich and kombucha — even late-night.

Hit the road

One of the joys of Portland is how easy it is to get out of town. Whatever your favorite outdoors activity — sitting by the river or back-country skiing — a quick jaunt in your Portland car rental alternative can take you to paradise.

Mount Hood

Drive 75 miles east in your Portland car rental alternative 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.

Willamette Valley

Head south in your Portland car rental alternative and to take a tour through Oregon’s wine country. You’ll find some exquisite pinot noirs, delicious food, and beautiful views.

Cannon Beach

The Oregon coast is stunning, surrounded by gorgeous forest, and only a 2-hour journey in your Portland car rental alternative. Check out Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach and get some taffy in town.

I rented Justin's Scion to drive from Portland to Eugene for a wedding and to visit friends. Justin made the experience of pick up and drop off a breeze. The vehicle is a little rough around the edges cosmetically....but I have to say that this is not a negative to me. I guess I like a car that feels like it can be used for a adventure with out the stress. Justin Scion is also dog friendly!!!! This is mainly why I rented it beyond the good reviews and price. Thanks again for making my rental experience a positive one!!🐶

Second time using Turo and really liked the car, the ride was very nice. I only stayed in Portland so no trip to the beach or anything adventurous. Justin made sure everything was A-OK and it was. Will rent from him again.

Scion xB 2008
Jay was cool. If you are planning on renting this to sleep in the back bring padding. Not the most impressive car as there is that high pitch sound when starting up and some missing paint, so know that. Jay is awesome and the car runs well.

Scion FR-S 2015
The Scion FR-S was a lot of fun to drive! My boyfriend and I drove it an hour north to Washington and it was such an experience driving this car with the beautiful scenery. Thien was great at quick responses and communication. Pick up and drop off were easy and straight forward. Would recommend this car - just be aware of how low the car is!

Had been visiting Portland for a week with a regular rental car, but wanted to drive something manual to end my trip. Thien was quick to respond and I couldn't have picked a better car. The FRS was clean and super fun to drive. Would definitely think about renting again when I come back to Portland.

David
Scion FR-S 2015
We had a terrific experience driving Thien’s sports car around the Greater Portland area (I love that my parents insisted I learned how to drive a stick shift all those years ago; in fact when we returned to Atlanta, my left foot experienced withdrawal). Thien was wonderful dealing with us, especially this being our first Turo experience. I’d recommend him to anyone!
David F. - June 23, 2018

Justin was amazing to work with. I needed a last minute reservation due to a mix-up with a previous reservation. He was extremely flexible and accommodating about pickup and drop off times and very personable. The car ran great and was perfect for the simple putzing around I needed to do for a couple days. I would definitely rent from Justin again!

Timothy
Scion xA 2006
Not one single complaint. On the day after Christmas this rental was nearly half the price of any other available rental in the city. Communication was near instant and very clear (I’m used to the seemingly intentionally ambiguous communication many hosts seem to favor. Am I the only one who has that problem??). I extended the rental by a day and, feeling grateful to have found this host in a desperate time, I extended it an extra hour at the last minute and basically detailed the entire car. This host was friendly, flexible, and respectful. The car was fun to drive, affordable, and good on gas milage. Would recommend and repeat.
Timothy L. - December 29, 2018
Cassidy
Scion iA 2016
This car was great! Extremely clean and amazing the gas mileage. I was warned before the trip that the check engine light was on, so I wasn’t worried, and the car handled great. I went to Salem and back and barely had to put anything in the tank afterward! Pick up and drop off were extremely easy as well. Would rent again!
Cassidy J. - January 6, 2019

Scion FR-S 2015
Thien’s FRS was a blast to drive! We took the car out to Multnomah Falls, and had so much fun on the twisting roads nearby. It was also great for a drive out to the coast. I even got complimented on the car! Thien was very easy to communicate with. Airport pickup and dropoff made everything a breeze. I would definitely recommend Thien’s car to anyone staying in the area, especially if you’re traveling out of the city to some fun roads!

Best Portland driving roads

Pacific Coast Scenic Byway

There’s nothing more cinematic than a long coastal drive in your Portland car rental alternative. A trip on Oregon’s Highway 101 delivers you sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, tidepools, and fishing towns.

Hells Canyon Scenic Byway

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 your Portland car rental alternative run wild.

Crater Lake National Park

It’s a solid 250-mile drive in your Portland car rental alternative to Oregon’s national park, but it’s worth the experience of driving the rim of this volcanic crater’s deep blue eye.
