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.
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.
Gas prices made the price to drive expensive but it was a very nice ride and Lam was excellent in communication.
The rental process was great & easy however there some quirks with the car as a non-BMW owner.
Nice car Easy rental process And only a $25 taxi ride from PDX to the Lux Rental office
The entire rental process with Victor and the experience using the vehicle was flawless. Thank you very much!
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.
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!!
Nice comfortable ride for our family with plenty of trunk space. Good value compared to traditional rental car companies.
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
The rental car agency left me out to dry, but Lux Rental came through. Would recommend to anyone.
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!
Nearly instant communication was amazing, entire trip was perfect. Smoothest rental process ever
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.
Very comfortable and great on gas. Car was clean and the rental process was very easy.
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!
Loc’s rental process was incredibly easy and smooth. We’d love to rent again. Thank you!
Worth the effort and much better service than the traditional Rental car companies. Car was super clean.
Lux Rental was amazing. Accommodated me with my pick up time. The Macan is such a beautiful truck. Will be renting from them again!
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.
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...
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.
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
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🙂.
Fun SUV, Lux Rental team is very easy to deal with, professional and friendly.
Super accommodating! I flew in late at night with a rental car reservation, but they were out of cars 😱 I messaged Jason late at night out of desperation, and he responded right away and got me set up. Couldn't ask for better customer service 👍
Had a great time with the car. Easy pick up/delivery.. Answered all my questions in a timely manner. I recommend the rental. Smooth luxurious ride at a good price.
This is my first time using Turo and Patrick went above and beyond to make our rental process smooth, friendly, and professional. The car was clean, well kept, and reliable. Patrick is a credit to Turo and we could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you, Patrick! You were a huge part of what made our trip special! Please consider Patrick for your future trips, I promise you won't regret it!
I am from a small Midwest town and I knew no one who had previously used Turo. I decided to take a chance and try it. The first car I reserved was canceled due to being in an accident. I was stressed and Turo made the process of booking a new car easy and Erin made it even easier. The car was clean, the rental process smooth and the vehicle itself was perfect. Drive great and got ex Ellen’s gas mileage. I could not have asked for a better experience. My only one suggestion would be to maybe get floor mats. Oregon is beautiful and we spent a lot of time outside. While we tried our hardest not to get the floors too dirty it was nearly impossible to keep our feet clean when we keep pulling over to hike or check out the scenery. It in no way took away from the great experience though!! Thank you Erin!!!
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.
The Range Rover was great! Was a fun ride for a quick weekend to the Oregon Coast, and pickup was great and smooth. Note to future renters: the host is a professional business, and they seem to run a pretty tight ship. They are a “letter of the law” operation - no warm fuzzies or being mildly generous on cleanliness requirements at return, which you typically experience with private parties on Turo or even big rental car companies. They want it showroom perfect inside and out - ready for the next guest - or they will charge you a cleaning fee. So just be advised and account for that. I’m giving 5 stars regardless, because the car was good and they are simply adhering strictly to their written instructions.
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%
Shayla was absolutely wonderful! The car was full of gas, spotless, and very easy to find. She was very quick to communicate and we will definitely be renting again on our next trip to Portland.
Exceeded expectations!! The Audi was perfect. Even better was Lux Rental LLC. Easy to check car out and easy to check car back in. Would definitely use as my primary car rental location anywhere I travel especially in the Portland area!
Very easy process, pick up is 10 minutes from PDX. The suv was a great rental for our family over the weekend - no complaints there. We would definitely rent from them again.
It was convenient, reliable, and friendly service, from the app to the associates at the Oregon Airport location. Prices are reasonable and expectations when the vehicle is returned are logical. It is not about just “renting” a car, it is about the whole experience.
David’s car was the perfect rental for our visit to Portland. He made renting a car even easier than using a traditional car rental service. He picked us up at the arrivals curb and met us there on departure, communicating clearly and cheerfully every step of the way. We’ll look forward to renting from him again!
Our first time using Turo. I was having a hard time finding a decent price for our trip to Oregon and I remembered the Turo commercials. I downloaded the app and started looking for a vehicle available to our destination. Daniel’s BMW X3 was priced lower than any of the smaller vehicles in the rental company, so we took a chance. The app walked me through the process and Daniel and his wife did the rest. We coordinated with adequate communication before our trip. They met us when we arrived at the airport, they gave us the key and we took off to our 2 hour drive to Depoe Bay. We enjoyed our 1 week trip so much and we loved using their brand new BMW vehicle. I texted Daniel letting him know what time our flight heading back home and he was already at the airport by the time we arrived. We handed him the key, thanked him for allowing us the use of their vehicle. It was a great experience for my entire family and we recommend them 100%. Awesome customer service and we loved the clean and brand new BMW X3.
Super smooth to work with for pick up and drop off. Best way to save time at the Portland Airport and get out into the woods. Very clean and smooth ride. I’ll rent from him next time I’m in town.
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.
Once again TURO and our host Erik did an excellent job with our rental. The pick up and return process was simple, the vehicle was on time, and clean. We will continue to use TURO when we visit the Portland area and other areas as well. Thanks to our Host again!
After looking for a while for a vehicle that would fit our needs - NOT electric, easy pickup location, not crazy $$, and high mileage allowance, and if possible, an SUV - Corey's car fit the bill! The car was a little loud when we started it, but it settled down after a little bit and really no issues throughout the trip. It is an older car so pickup was a little slow, but it handled the hills and curves really well. Was clean and Corey even had some helpful items in the car for the ride: USB plug adapter, aux cord, and sunshade. Were nice bonuses! NOTE: this car has an old-school windshield fluid dispenser - you push a little button on the end! I forgot about those and thought there wasn't any fluid, but there was! Thanks for the great addition to our trip. Hope to use Corey again next time we are in Portland!
We decided to take a more adventurous trip this year and this car made it entirely. CJ was extremely accommodating, timely and the best commutator. I recommend this service and CJ and will use him again when I return to Portland.
First time user of Turo, will definitely use it again. The ability to choose the vehicle you’re going to rent and the cost was better than the rental car companies. My host Michael was a pleasure to deal with, went out of his way to make sure my trip was excellent.
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 😃
Timothy was great to work with! Quick to respond and very accommodating with our arrival and departure needs. Great quality vehicle for an excellent price!
Bryan's Subaru was perfect for our quick adventure out to Portland/Vancouver, WA! It was clean, pick up and drop off were a smooth experience. Aside from the Turo app and site issues we both had during the entire reservation process, Bryan continued with his great communication throughout everything. Will definitely rent again if we are in the area!
A 900 mile road trip in comfort, with my wife & 80+ year old parents… As a first time Turo user and a first time EV road tripper, I had a lot of questions. Robert was incredibly patient, helpful and informative. His Tesla Model Y was amazing, solidifying my intentions of becoming a Tesla owner in the near future. Many thanks to Robert & Turo for affording me & my family this amazing opportunity!
Paul was great to work with and the vehicle was in excellent condition and a great rental for my trip. Extremely well priced and perfect transition. Definitely will rent from Paul again in the future.
Yikes is amazing. Super responsive. And even returned items I accidentally left in the car. The car was perfect for out trip. Big, beautiful ride. Quite. 5 years old but wonderful. I could not be happier with the experience. This was a first time Turo rental. I can't imagine a better value. Thanks so much for everything!!!
Pick up was super easy with Tim and the car was great. Very clean and had nice touches like a bunch of extra chargers. Tim even had a seat cover to offer if we had a dog with us. Tim was super accommodating to our request for 1 extra hour of time with the car. Would totally rent again from Tim next time we are in Portland.
Michael was on time for pick-up and drop off. The car is in great shape and was exactly what we needed for our trip! I highly recommend him for your future car rental needs.
Arturo was extremely helpful and very accommodating. We had a flight mishap and was able to extend our reservation after already ending it. The car was perfect for exploring Oregon, hiking, and great for car camping. We even fell in love with this specific car and considering to purchase one for our next car. It's smoooooth, clean & spacious!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.
