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 ExcellentApr 22 2018
EasyPros: Couldn’t have been easier, in and out in no time. Car was great too.Cons: Nothing
10.0 ExcellentMar 12 2018
Great experiencePros: Quick check outCons: Little pricey
4.0 OkayOct 23 2017
AnnoyingPros: It was easy pick upCons: Tried to pay with gift card at end and they couldn't break up payment so had to pay for whole thing out of pocket. Ridiculous they don't have better technology in 2017.
7.2 GoodOct 4 2017
Car pickupPros: Budget was right in the airport baggage claim area. Drop off is quick, car was nice.Cons: Nicole, the woman who was checking us into our rental, took my name for the reservation and then stated that I could pay for an upgrade because they only had SUV's available. I was very confused because I had reserved a full-size sedan which she then acknowledged and stated, "Ma'am, we are a very small airport with limited vehicles, you are an hour early for your reservation and therefor we do not have your vehicle ready." Long story short, I waited 45 minutes in the Bangor Airport bar scratching my head and wondering if my sedan was going to magically appear. At 12:45pm, I waited in line for another 20 minutes and was checked in by Nicole, given the keys to my car (in which she never stated what it would be) and walked out to my vehicle... AN SUV. I am in no way upset that my vehicle was an SUV, but how I was talked to like I was out of line for being early and then forced to wait for something I knew they didn't have. If the problem was that my car was not cleaned and ready yet, no problem, but to "educate" me on the size of the airport and how things work there was un-necessary.

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

Great ridePros: It was a great car for my drives in Acadia National Park.
8.0 ExcellentJul 29 2019
Pros: The location is super convenient. Everything is done through the counter including drop off which is unlike other locations.Cons: It would be nice if the drop off had at least one person there to assist. Overall pricing is very high compared to rentals I have had in the past or renting in Bar Harbor.
2.0 MediocreAug 16 2016

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
Cons: The car was dirty and smoke smell. and also they addedd $20.00 more than quoted to online price.

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
Excellent rental servicePros: The agent recognized the hatchback we had been assigned would be a tight squeeze with our car seat and luggage. she gave us complentary upgrade and sent us happily on our way!Cons: I did not like the previous passenger
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.

When to book a rental car in Bangor

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.

Additionally, streetside parking spaces are large enough for even the biggest of rental vehicles, so parking is a non-issue.

  • Speed limits start out at 25 mph for residential, downtown, and shopping areas in Bangor. Aside from that, 30 mph and 40 mph speed limits are seen posted on the main roads and larger streets in the city. Additionally, highways, and expressways in the area feature speed limits from 70 to 75 mph.

  • Car renters will be happy to hear that gas prices are quite cheap in Bangor. The average price per gallon is about $2.25, which is significantly cheaper than the average price in Salt Lake City at $2.75 per gallon and is only slightly more expensive than Dallas’ average price of $1.80 per gallon.

  • Parking garages are one of the better options for drivers in Bangor. Parking spots in the downtown area, especially near shopping areas, fill up quickly during the week so garages are often your best bet for guaranteeing a parking spot. Streetside parking is still available, though; it is just limited in quantity during the peak hours of the day. Paid parking in the downtown area costs around $1.00 per hour on average.
