10.0 ExcellentJun 13 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off were efficient.Cons: Drop off box was hard to find and there was a crowd at the desk. Better signage would have helped.
8.0 ExcellentMay 20 2021
Pros: The staff was great and the car was clean.Cons: Lots of damage to the car and nobody did a walk around or told me about it. I returned the car a day early and still was charged the full booking amount.
10.0 ExcellentNov 25 2020
Pros: Staff was excellent and very friendly. Wish I had paid more attention as to where the car was located. Had to walk around the lot "beeping" the car to find it.Cons: No instructions on how to use keyless car. Card or manual in glove box would be helpful. 1. Step on brake to start car while pushing start/stop button. 2. How to open the gas tank and where it's located. 3. Toll E Z Pass use. 4. How to open rear door on SUV. Not all of us have these features in our cars. And no visual indicators for this inside car. It was trial and error finding skills. Called my sister who knew how to open gas tank, I would have never found it!. Both SUV's I rented were a little different with these things. But both were very comfortable and made for a great drive.
8.8 ExcellentAug 18 2020
Pros: Easy to pick up and drop off. Nice car.Cons: We paid for EZ pass for tolls but the car was not equipped for it.
10.0 ExcellentOct 18 2019
Pros: Super easy pickup and drop-off. Very nice new car - perfect for our needs. No harassment for additional unnecessary insurance.
10.0 ExcellentOct 8 2019
Pros: The whole Process was very easyCons: Rental needed air in the tires upon pickup, parking lot for pickup drop-off could definitely be more well lit.
2.0 MediocreAug 2 2019
Cons: I booked the rental online but when I arrived no cars were available.
6.4 GoodJul 24 2019
Cons: Drop off was a hassle. Avis/Budget return spaces were full, with a vague sign saying to proceed to another floor, where there was no signage to indicate where to leave the car. The rental office isn't actually at the address listed, and neither is the garage where the car is returned.
2.0 MediocreAug 3 2018
Pros: nothingCons: Was charged twice as much for some reason
10.0 ExcellentJul 3 2018
Pros: The rental process was quick, easy and accommodating. It’s all I could ask for.

10.0 ExcellentJun 3 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly and efficient
8.4 ExcellentOct 26 2020
Pros: We loved the Nissan SUV that we were given. Might even buy one ourselves :). The pickup was a couple of hours too early, but that was an easy adjustment for the salesperson. Loved the good deal from KAYAK. Saved about $350 total for one week!Cons: I honestly don't like the hard sell that car rental companies often do and Alamo was no exception. She tried to sell me the full tank of gas, insurance that would have duplicated what we already had, told us about a toll booth gadget, but did not inform us there would be high charges if we used it $3.95/day we later found out. I would love it if ONE car company was truly honest and told us "You really don't need this, but we offer it"
9.6 ExcellentOct 5 2020
Pros: Fast pick up, cool carCons: Better instructions on drop off location. Regular entrance was closed due to construction and no signs posted to indicate car rental returns
9.2 ExcellentNov 18 2019
Cons: The way they do the gas is confusing. They make you guess up front how much gas you're going to use. Why not just give you a full tank and have you pay at market price for the amount you use?
6.0 GoodNov 16 2019
Pros: The truck was clean and neatCons: In comparison to other rental companies like Avis and Budget, their rental system and computer systems seem far outdated. Would go with my usual choice of budget if renting again.
10.0 ExcellentSep 23 2019
Pros: Overall experience was great!!!Cons: Nothing.
7.2 GoodSep 11 2019
Pros: The staff at the pickup counter was great, friendly and helpful. Only glitch: he said he'd activated satellite radio, but it never worked.Cons: There's no attendant for dropoff and the signage is lacking, but overall, easy enough. The gal at the return counter was pretty unfriendly: unresponsive and if she ever smiled, I missed it.
9.2 ExcellentAug 25 2019
Pros: Staff was terrific!Cons: Better price.
9.2 ExcellentAug 12 2019
Pros: Staff was great and drop off easyCons: Pick up line was long and took a while
10.0 ExcellentAug 1 2019
Great ridePros: It was a great car for my drives in Acadia National Park.

Cons: Price
4.4 OkaySep 10 2020
Pros: The car was in good conditionCons: When we arrived, we were told that they did not have a car for us and could not get one. They said we could wait around to see if someone else did not pick up their rental and we could have their car. After waiting for an hour, we were told that we would have to come back to the airport in the morning to pick up a car. Our hotel was over an hour away, so we asked if they would pay for us to stay in a hotel nearby. We were told "no", that we would have to come back at 11am the next day. After paying to get a ride to our hotel and back to the airport, they gave us a measly $35 credit for our trouble. I would ABSOLUTELY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE rent a car from them again.

10.0 ExcellentJun 12 2021
Pros: The pick up was quick and easy. I was on the road in about 20 minutes.Cons: The shuttle took a few minutes to pick us up at the airport, but we didn't wait too long.
4.0 OkaySep 25 2017
ChaosPros: New carCons: Had rented an intermediate level car for fuel efficiency for the long one way drive. After waiting 30+ minutes for the rental shuttle to come to airport, we were taken to a dirty building that was chaotic. They didn’t have enough rentals so it was either take the inefficient SUV or wait even longer for another return. The SUV was dirty as well. The return location at Trenton airport lacks signs on the road telling you which lot to drop it off in as well as the prerecorded message when you call the location doesn’t help.
9.2 ExcellentOct 17 2016
Pros: The people at the Bangor location were very nice - although I have to once again say that I have never had a better experience than what we have come to expect from Lance Reardon at your Ellsworth facility ...Lance is THE man!!!Cons: It is a very minor thing to mention, but I dislike when I get a car that has less than a full tank - it is easy to fill up before returning but I invariably overfill when I was given a car that was 3/4 or less
9.6 ExcellentOct 10 2016
10 minutes a ride and you are there !Pros: easy access, they pick you up just minutes after you call, Its such a small airport, this was so was and saved money! Realy quick, good service!Cons: my bill was 20.00 higher then I expected.the wind shield was dirty , but we just wiped it at the first gas station.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2016
Ryan in Bangor was awesome...Pros: Ryan was so good with my rental ..Cons: Kind and courtesy was his strength.. Smart too
7.6 GoodSep 11 2016
MainePros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The car worked perfect for what I needed and didnot think it was over priced. I will add again the staff was great there very very nice.Cons: I did not like that I had to take a shuttle from the airport. My big problem is when I dropped my car off I had a flight to catch, but I had to wait att he enterprise store which is 5 miles from the airport for the shuttle to return. I ended up having to wait 15 minutes.
9.2 ExcellentAug 8 2016
Super helpful staff!Pros: Friendly staff!!! Worked with us to provide the appropriate vehicle for our needs.Cons: It was a pricey rental, albeit a busy time of year.
3.6 MediocreJul 23 2016

4.0 OkayMay 12 2021
Cons: The gas tank could have been filled rather than half empty and the license tans could have been legal. They expired two months back and I worried about being stopped the whole time for expired plates.
2.0 MediocreFeb 16 2019
Pros: Vehicle was fine until it rained. Tires were bald and it was a danger on the roadCons: Replace the tires before someone is seriously hurt
5.6 OkaySep 20 2018
Bait and switchPros: Not muchCons: Lack of flexibility at pick up.
2.0 MediocreJul 31 2018
TerribleCons: They wouldn’t let me have the car bc my card I’d prepaid in full with was a MasterCard debit card (instead of a credit card), & also bc my return flight location didn’t match the location I was dropping off the rental car. The man a the counter said he couldn’t refund me, but gave me a 1-800 number to call instead. I spent about an hour on the phone during my vacation trying to get refunded. One time I was on hold for 20 minutes and the lady accidentally disconnected our phone call, so I had to call & go through the entire process again.A rental car company two counters over was more than happy to rent to me with my debit card & return flight that didn’t match the car drop off, with a price considerably less than Avis’s. I will never rent from Avis again.
10.0 ExcellentAug 15 2017
Easy DropPros: Simple drop-off. Took less than 5 minutes. Drop-off was at airport.Cons: Nothing.
9.2 ExcellentJul 23 2017

10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2016
Pros: Great rate on the car that was exactly what I needed.Cons: Would have loved for it to have included EZPass access.

Top tips for renting a car in Bangor

  • Nothing calls for a rental car quite like the scenic roads of Maine. It is highly suggested that visitors to Bangor take the chance to admire the scenery and there’s no better way than driving the roads yourself. One great option for visitors is to take a drive down to Acadia National Park (43 miles away). Additionally, like many cities in the U.S., private vehicles are by far the most convenient means of transport in Bangor.
  • Looking to rent a vehicle right when you arrive in Bangor? If you are flying into Bangor International Airport, you will find the rental car counters located in adjacent to Baggage Claim on the first floor of the Domestic Terminal.
  • Bangor, like much of Maine, has its fair share of wildlife. It is highly advised that drivers keep their eyes open when driving on rural roads and highways, especially at night. Wildlife appear in higher numbers in the summer and spring, so be particularly cautious during the warmer seasons.
  • Luckily for visitors and commuters in Bangor, traffic in the city is very light. During the work week, drivers can expect to experience a slight increase in congestion around 7:00 a.m., lasting until 9:00 a.m. During the afternoon and evening the traffic picks back up again just around 4:00 p.m. and cools off at around 5:30 or 6:00 p.m. If you are looking to avoid traffic during your time in Bangor, then Main Street and Union Street are the two roads to skirt around during rush hour.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Bangor for $55 or less
  • Book your rental car in Bangor at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Premium rental cars in Bangor are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car.
