8.8 ExcellentAug 8 2020
Pros: Expedia/Kayak booked their car at the wrong location.Cons: Expedia/kayak should have booked correctly.
7.6 GoodJul 7 2020
Pros: Good new car.Cons: over $30 extra taxes not mentioned during reservation
5.2 OkayJul 6 2020
Pros: Kia Optima was a good road car with great gas mileage.Cons: Car had half tank of gas, windshield was dirty, no wiper fluid, low fron t tirew
7.2 GoodApr 11 2020
Cons: I was chared more than I was quoted because locations were closed and I could only pick up my reservation at the airport
10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2019
Cons: Nonsmoking car
8.0 ExcellentAug 29 2019
Cons: I brought the car back with a full tank but I was still charged for a full tank of gas. Just make sure but all the charges are checked out before you sign on the dotted line
10.0 ExcellentMay 26 2019
Pros: The entire experience was amazing! I have rented cars in the past and have had marginal experiences in most cases. Everybody I encountered was friendly the explanation of all expectations was clear and I was upgraded to an EscaladeCons: Well if the Escalade had gotten better than 24 miles to the gallon I would have been happier but that's not Enterprises fault. I intend to call corporate headquarters and sing the Praises of the staff.
10.0 ExcellentMay 19 2019
Pros: This was by far the best experience I’ve ever had with a car rental. They upgraded my car. The staff was super helpful. Sean helped me set up the Bluetooth. They called the next day to see if everything was okay. When I returned the car, I was given a ride to the airport. Highly recommended.Cons: Nothing. I had meant to rent the car at the Medford airport and had rented it here by mistake. But i was very happy with my mistake. It was considerably less expensive here and a very good experience.
4.0 OkayOct 22 2018
Cons: The customer service at this location was the worst of any car rental place I have ever used. The 2 young men at the counter were unprofessional and rude. I would never use them again
2.8 MediocreMay 9 2017
Avoid if possibleCons: Reservation not at specified location (airport). Had to take a cab to get to the down town location. Company made now effort to provide transportation. Then waited nearly 2 hours for "Next available vehicle". Unfortunately, the gas tank was S early empty...needed gas just to get out of town. The car was not clean and had damage to the seat. While they attempted to reduce the price the final bill was still higher than agreed to. Avoid if possible!

5.6 OkaySep 27 2020
Pros: Car was clean and at least they had one for me. The gentleman behind the counter was nice.Cons: I picked up my car at the Medford airport. There's no signage indicating you have to go inside to pick up the rental, I just happened to walk inside after driving around the rental vehicle lot. I had booked an economy car (small size) and instead got stuck with a big gas guzzler on a 6-hour drive home. So while the initial rental was cheap, with the cost of gas it ended up being more than if I had just rented somewhere else. I was one person traveling by myself; I didn't want or need a massive SUV instead of a standard sedan and I'm not sure why an airport has so much trouble getting a variety of vehicles.
3.2 MediocreMay 4 2020
Pros: NothingCons: You guys could’ve been more reliable Understanding and helpful. You need better communication threw the companies. I had a flat and it took you guys basically two days to get me a new car. You guys charged me twice for insurance then tried to charge me again just to get me my car
10.0 ExcellentDec 18 2019
Pros: Super fast checkin and checkout and very conveniently located
8.0 ExcellentJul 28 2019
Pros: Convenient at airport
9.6 ExcellentJun 23 2019
Pros: Love going in and out of small airports! The Budget desk is right next to the baggage claim and car pickup & drop off is is literally just outside the door.
4.4 OkayJan 22 2019
Pros: Staff ready and helpfulCons: No one in the early AMs to receive car back and don’t be surprised if they charge you an extra $100 because the amount they tell you is a “guestimated cost”... con-artist
10.0 ExcellentAug 21 2018
Thinking of buying onePros: Very peppy engine. Loved the accessories, dual air control, sound system, seats safety features. Very roomy, especially back compartment, more than enough room for four passengers with luggage.Cons: There wasn't anything I disliked. However, I received a "change oil very soon" warning 1/2 way through my trip. It didn't concern me, just made me wonder if somebody missed a maintenance schedule.
8.8 ExcellentAug 8 2018
Pros: Car was very clean & excellent condition, relatively fast pickup.Cons: There were many hidden fees/taxes that were unexpected prior to pickup.
4.4 OkayAug 8 2018
Cons: Billed me wrong. Upgraded to the nosiest SUV (Jeep Compass sounded like a helicopter). I had to call Budget customer service to correct billing error (counter rep "had no authority"). Other than that it was poor.
5.2 OkayJul 27 2018
I know it was a cheap rental... But...!Cons: Was told it was the only car left... once I saw I called in to ask to change to something bigger or smaller... luckily I think I talked to a manager off duty... Scratches all over the car(glad I called), wasn’t cleaned... dirt all over in the inside... no floor mats and a huge hole in the driver side floor carpet... really?!! With only 14k miles...

9.6 ExcellentOct 20 2020
Pros: Super quick pickup/dropoff and received a nicer car than we were expecting.Cons: The shuttle from the airport was a little bit of an unexpected inconvenience but they were super quick to pick up after calling. Could see how it would be a big pain if you were picking up/returning after hours.
9.6 ExcellentApr 26 2020
Pros: As helpful as they could be with few staff and early closures during the pandemic.Cons: We needed to drop the car off in Salem at 7 pm and at noon no one could answer the phone to tell us whether they had a key drop box because it would be after hours. We were a little worried about whether we were going to be able to drop the car off.
10.0 ExcellentJan 28 2020
Pros: Staff at both ends were professional.there were problems solved.Cons: I needed to know that a credit card was necessary. Worth making that more important, as important as drivers license!
5.2 OkayJan 6 2020
Pros: staffCons: clean windows are critical for a car to be driven safely. the windows inside and out were filthy.
5.6 OkayOct 9 2019
Pros: The staff was ok but didn't accept my driver's license. I had renewed my driver' license with the State of Washington. They punched a hole in the old license and gave me a temporary license from a printer. They told me that the combination of the old license and the temporary license was a valid driver's license but the person behind the counter did not agree. I could not rent the car. Nothing on Kayak warned me of this problem.Cons: It would have been better if Kayak would have warned me of this problem.
6.8 GoodOct 8 2019
Pros: The car was great and clean.Cons: The branch manager was extremely rude and lied about the status of the car. Branch manager made up a story to why I couldnt receive my keys when I walked in the door instead of being honest and stating the car just wasn’t ready. After confronting about lie, branch manager became more and more rude. Vented to employees in customer presence. Worst management and leadership I have ever witnessed in a rental branch.

8.0 ExcellentOct 10 2019
Pros: Our customer service representative was excellent, explained everything and anticipated any questions we might have.Cons: Nothing.
9.6 ExcellentAug 14 2019
Pros: The staff were amazing! They had all the car paperwork prepped for everyone arriving and made it such an efficient experience to pick up the keys and get the car.
2.0 MediocreMay 14 2019
Pros: nothingCons: I reserved a car, but when I arrived at airport, they told me that though they had cars available, they wouldn't give me one, because they were running low and wanted to give cars to other people who also had reservations.
10.0 ExcellentMay 7 2019
Pros: The gal at the desk when we picked up was very friendly, professional and helpful.Cons: The Medford car rental parking lot could probably use a little reconfiguring of parking spaces allotted to each company. The first signs we saw didn't even list Alamo so it was a bit of an educated guess to just keep walking until we got to our car.

Pros: Super convenient and great value for money.
10.0 ExcellentDec 23 2016
Great customer servicePros: The rental agent was efficient, knowledgeable, and very friendly. It was easy to rent, find the car and return it.
10.0 ExcellentDec 8 2016
Pros: The Jeep handled well on the mountain curves in inclement weather, held to the road in strong wind. Visibility was good, defrost effective. We like the roomy storage area, and the back doors which opened fully. This was first Jeep either of us had driven, and we found all the panel information, buttons and levers, clearly marked and easy to use.Cons: The gas gauge did not seem to give reliable reading. We drove a major portion of our trip using, apparently, a moderate portion of available gas. The gas alarm light flashed on surprisingly soon after the gauge registered a quarter tank. We had projected our refill stop, and had to recalculate.

5.6 OkayNov 23 2019
Pros: Nice upgrade to a premium 4WDCons: Vehicles were not available. Myself and 6+ others had to wait almost two hours to receive keys. I spent $300 more on a air ticket to arrive early, woke up at 3:30AM for that flight, then had to wait 2 hours to get a pre-booked rental car.... They dropped the price $40, but it was a trainwreck.
10.0 ExcellentSep 16 2019
Pros: Pickup and drop off were easy. The vehicle was an upgrade. The price was excellent.Cons: The vehicle had a high tech system built into the dashboard to link with my mobile phone. Unfortunately, it was too comp licated to be intuitively obvious. I had to unlink my phone. There were no instructions. They were probably in the glove box, which was locked. The car key wouldn't open it.
6.8 GoodAug 12 2019
Pros: PriceCons: The more fuel efficient car I reserved was unavailable. The upgrade/alternate got much poorer MPG. A phone number not affiliated with me was read back to me at check-in the person behind the counter wouldn’t remove it.

Top tips for renting a car in Medford

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Medford rent a vehicle for the duration of their time in the city. The main reason for this is that there is no other way to get around town. There are some limited bus routes, but their service is often slow and does not cover the entirety of the city. Also, if you plan on enjoying the natural scenery while you are in Medford, having a rental car of your own is certainly the best way to achieve that.
  • Need to pick up your rental car after arriving in Medford? Travelers landing at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport can find the rental car counters located in the airport’s arrivals area.
  • One thing drivers should keep in mind when driving at night on country roads around Medford is that wildlife is very common in the area. In fact, wildlife such as elk and deer are numerous throughout the whole state of Oregon. While this is not an overly serious concern, it never hurts to be a bit cautious when you are driving late at night on dark roads.
  • Visitors to Medford will be happy to hear that rush hour traffic is not a big deal here. However, there is some degree of congestion during peak hours in the morning, starting at 8:00 a.m. and lasting until 9:00 a.m. Medford’s rush hour congestion pops back up again in the afternoon starting around 4:00 p.m. and then finishes off around 6:00 p.m. Aside from those two periods, though, there is not too much congestion to worry about. Most of the city’s congestion is also limited to Crater Lake Highway, particularly as it nears I-5.

Parking is also a non-issue, as parking spots in the city are large enough for all vehicles. However, if Medford is just the first stop on a road trip, then a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle might be something worth considering.

  • Speed limits in Medford start out at a low of 20 to 25 mph in residential areas and 30 to 50 mph on urban roads. Outside the city, the speed limit ranges from 55 to 70 mph on rural roads. Interstates, on the other hand, typically post speed limits of 65 to 70 mph.

  • In downtown Medford, core parking is mostly comprised of on-street parallel parking and metered parking spots. There are a few scattered parking garages and parking lots, but for the most part a combination of streetside parking with private parking at businesses accounts for the majority of parking volume. Parking spots in the garages are generally free for the first hour or two and then charge between $1.00 to $2.00 per hour for additional hours.

  • 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. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
