They upgraded me to a Jeep Cherokee! Very friendly staff, super efficient in getting the rental car, will use againOutside of Jeep was slightly dirty.
5.2 OkayOct 26 2019
Pickup easy and helpful. The bad was that I WAS NOT told that there was to be a $100 one way fee. I was not told until I dropped off the vehicle. I am very upset over the whole situation.To have been told before hand. I rented the car for a total of about 3 hours of driving to find out that I would have an additional $100 fee added for one way which I told them I was going one way BUT THEY didn't tell me of the additional fee. I will NEVER rent from them again!

Friendly staff and super helpfulThere was NO ice/snow scrapper. We rented a car in Bend, Oregon in winter. The second day there was a snow storm. The front wheel drive and all season tires served us well but I was disappointed to not find any sort of ice/snow scrapper in the car. I purchased one and left it in the car.

Unthorough inspectionDidn't take longThe woman at pick up left it to me to inspect damage. When I told her about fender damage she noted it on the form but didn't inspect it herself. I then had to tell her about the cigarette smell and the oil change light. She said she'd let them know at the drop-off location.

The car was greatNo one was at the location when I arrived (despite having a reservation) and I had to sit in a 95-degree parking lot for an hour.
4.0 OkayMay 22 2021
Drop off super easy because it’s such a small airportFirst, it was MY mistake by reserving a car at the OFF AIRPOT enterprise. The ON AIRPORT enterprise clerk was no help at all. Wouldnt call the offsite spot for us, wouldnt help us get a ride (Redmond has no shuttles) to the offsite location, looked at his cell phone while we talked to him instead of looking at us (and didnt even pretend) to care. Crummy attitude. If I were his boss I’d fire him.
2.0 MediocreMay 20 2021
The car I booked was at a location that was closed. I was then sent to a location that was 20 miles away and did not have any available cars. Enterprise was not able to rent any vehicle.
10.0 ExcellentApr 27 2021
Very friendly staff. Easy pick up and drop off
6.0 GoodApr 12 2021
The vehicle has four tires and a steering wheelNot charged me more than my reservation with Kayak+ a two hundred dollar deposit, of which one was refunded at all. This is typical with enterprise. Despite no damage ever being done on my part to any enterprise vehicle I’ve never gotten my deposits Back, in anything enterprise always finds a way to charge me additional. As of now I have paid 305 dollars for a 36 hour rental which is criminal.

The representative walked me to the car to show me the vehicle had been sanitized and cleaned. After I arrived at my destination I found empty water bottles with chewed gum on the lid. There was trash in the back as well.

Had to call a couple times to get the agreed upon price, which was about $90 less than the budget office tried to charge. Also dodmt like the additional taxes/fees that were not in the advertised $38/day. price. Would have loved to have gotten the c. $10/day loss leader come on price!

Good Value For The PriceThe car was clean and well maintained. The associate who assisted me was friendly and helpful.The drop off was awkward. There was no directions about where I should park the car when I returned it. There was also no one at the counter when I dropped off my keys.

At check in the reservations weren’t available so we had to show our reservation and it seemed to take quite a bit longer. However the customer service rep was apologetic and really stepped up to get our reservation handled

Dirty carThe car seemed pretty newI interrupted the rep from some activity on her cell phone. The car was so dirty. It had trash, crumbs on the seat & cereal down the inside. Interior windows filthy. No offer to complete the cleaning.
2.0 MediocreApr 4 2017
I'll never rent or even reserve a rental with HertzThey have the lowest priceThere was no warning that I was required to have a major credit card i order to rent a vehicle with Hertz. The girl at the counter could have cared less to the fact that I had a reservation for 2 weeks in order to be in my close friend's wedding. She offered no help or other options, and simply wanted to keep saying, "It's our policy" yet when I asked to see the policy, she refused and said she would call the police on me! WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE! I'LL NEVER USE HERTZ OR KAYAK AGAIN!
10.0 ExcellentApr 3 2017
Terrific Hertz Sales PersonI accidentally pre-registered for the vehicle to be in a different location. My sales person was solution-oriented from the start, very positive and friendly. She got me taken care of in the best way possible, as soon as possible. This was my first time renting from Hertz and I was very impressed.

Car rental insurance in Bend

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bend car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Bend.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Bend car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Bend

  • Bend, Oregon is known as an outdoor playground, and with your Bend car rental, you can explore all of the area’s attractions. In town, you can spend a day at Drake Park on the banks of the Deschutes River, learn about the area’s cultural and natural history at the High Desert Museum, or enjoy a spelunking adventure at the Lava River Cave, a mile-long lave tube just 13 miles south of the city center. For skiers, there are two ski resorts within an hour’s drive from the city. Bachelor Ski and Sport is just 22 miles west of Bend, and the Hoodoo Ski Area is 45 miles to the northwest. There is a lot of great hiking around Bend, the trail at Tumalo Falls provides breathtaking views of the falls. Crater Lake National Park is just 2h away and is a great place for hiking, fishing, and enjoying the views as you drive around the rim.

Be aware that it is state law to use your blinker when turning out of a traffic circle, and failure to signal could result in a hefty fine. Bend is also known for being a bicycle-friend city, and drivers should be prepared to share the road with cyclists.  
  • Rush hour traffic is not a concern when traveling in Bend. However, traffic volumes do pick up in the summer months when this tourist town sees an influx of vacationers, and the weekends year-round tend to be busier than the weekdays.

  • Among the most popular car rentals in Bend are economy cars, because they’re fuel-efficient and easy to drive both around town and longer distances to visit the surrounding cities and parks. However, if you plan to explore the more remote areas of the nearby mountains in the Cascade Mountain Range, an SUV or a pickup truck with 4WD is better equipped to handle these rugged terrains. Keep in mind that access to many of the remote trails in the surrounding areas requires a 4WD vehicle with high clearance.  

  • Most of the rural highways surrounding Bend have a speed limit of 55mph. Speeds in most residential districts are limited to 25mph while business districts are often restricted to a maximum speed of 20mph. On the Bend Parkway (US-97) the posted speed limit is 45mph, but traffic usually travels at or above 55mph. Drivers should be aware that police officers are frequently stationed along the road to enforce the speed limit.

  • The average price of gas in Bend is about $2.67 per gallon. Remember: in much of Oregon, including Deschutes County where Bend is located, pumping your own gas is prohibited by law. Therefore, all gas stations in Bend are full service. Also, when driving the mountains or the high desert areas to the east of Bend, keep in mind that there can be 30 miles or more between gas stations, so you shouldn’t wait until your tank is almost empty before filling up.  

  • Most of the parking lots in Downtown Bend have metered spaces for about $1 per hour with a 4h time limit, Monday through Saturday. The downtown Centennial Garage offers free parking for 3h or around $1 per hour for all-day parking, and it’s free to park at the garage on the weekends. On-street parking is free throughout the city, but there is a 2h time limit. However, on the streets surrounding NW Congress St, on-street parking is metered at a $5 flat rate and is reserved for special events at Drake Park and the downtown area. Parking is free everywhere on Sundays and most major holidays.
