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 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.

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.

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 American soil, but the popular MLS team puts on a show worthy of their chanting, singing fans.

Washington Park

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.

The car was amazing and Lasse was great at communicating the entire time. From pick up to drop off - we were very happy with our experience. There’s no USB port and the Bluetooth doesn’t seem to work (but we also may have been technologically challenged in that area - google didnt help us out too much). Maybe someone else can figure it out! There is a port for a car charger adapter so bring that if you’ll need to charge! Either way, our trip was awesome regardless!

Lasse is a great communicator, the car was immaculately clean, and the trip went great.

This was my first time using Turo and it was amazing! I got a great car with amazing gas mileage but still a midsize! A lot cheaper than rental companies. Pick up and drop off was so easy and Joeys communication was impeccable! Will definitely use a car from them again!
Beverly G.- July 11, 2020
Perfect car rental! Joey made everything very smooth and simple. Good communication, answered all my questions before I asked them, very responsive, and on time. Would definitely rent from him again!

Hit the road

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.

Mount Hood

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.

Willamette Valley

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.

Cannon Beach

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.

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.

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.

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!

I will definitely be renting from him again when I come back to Portland.

BMW X3 2019

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.

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.

Cadillac Escalade ESV 2017

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
