6.0 GoodJun 12 2021
Pros: Staff was helpful and drop-off and pick-up were easy.Cons: VERY limited selection of vehicles and ended up with a vehicle with bald tires
10.0 ExcellentMay 17 2021
Pros: Easy drop off and low costCons: Nothing
4.0 OkayApr 28 2021
Pros: The pickup staff did their best in a bad situation (limited cars). The return staff was very helpful and friendly.Cons: The terminal counter was closed and there weren't enough clerks in the garage area, to which we were redirected. They ran out of mid-sized cars and they initially wanted to put me in a tiny, Yugo-looking, thing. I pushed hard and got a Jeep; great. Upon returning it, the clerk noted some dings on the roof. I assured her, that I'd not placed anything up there nor parked under a tree or awning. I also noted the pickup clerk had not checked the roof, so there was no way to know when the supposed damage (I couldn't see any dings) occurred. They nonetheless sent me a damage report and it was only after pushing back that they waived it "because you're such a valued customer." Yeah, right. All in all, a pretty frustrating experience.
10.0 ExcellentApr 12 2021
Pros: Staff was extremely helpful and gave good tips about the car.Cons: Signage for check-in could be better. Signs coming from the airport terminal lead you to one place and then there are signs there redirecting to garage for check-in. The temp signs in use could be place better.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 22 2021
Pros: They staff got me a great vehicle for the intense winter road conditions in Oregon. We couldn’t have gotten to our destination had it not been for the 4 wheel drive in our Toyota 4 Runner.Cons: A tiny bit of instruction. But there was an ice storm going on and it was late. The guys were super nice.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 11 2021
Pros: Staff were helpful, car was clean.Cons: Price promised through priceline was not 100% honored as I had the car out for an entire month+. They had me sign a contract for way more than what I booked through Kayak and then "forgot" to honor the original price in the end. With reminding, they manually changed most of it, but it was still more than the original daily rate.
8.0 ExcellentJan 11 2021
Pros: New vehicle.Cons: Didn't have the class of car I reserved and tried to substitute a mini-van. If you don't have a small SUV offer an upgrade.
8.0 ExcellentNov 30 2020
Pros: Yes all good.Cons: The van could of been cleaned throughly before pick up especially during the covid pandemic.
10.0 ExcellentNov 19 2020
Cons: Not have such a large payment required because of dropping off the car in a different place than it was rented from.
6.8 GoodOct 27 2020
Pros: Nice staff. Drop off very easy.Cons: Car could have been better for the price.

2.0 MediocreMay 28 2021
Pros: Absolutely nothing. Worst rental experience of my life. Car was dirty upon pickup. Had to make a few changes to my itinerary and their customer service line was busy or disconnected. It automatically more than doubled my charges. When I left a poor review at Avis, I was contacted by a customer service manager who said he would credit me back $200...and after 3 follow up emails over the course of 2 weeks, he has not responded. Horrible companyCons: Absolutely everything. Terrible experience and will never rent from them again
8.0 ExcellentMay 14 2021
Pros: Drop off confusing if I wasn't experienced.Cons: 1. Some one right there to check in the car or at least say they'd be right there. 2. Hot to open gas tanks written inside car. 3. How to change display back to mph instead of koh.
10.0 ExcellentMay 11 2021
Pros: My staff was super helpful and patient at helping a large family upgrade our vehicle
10.0 ExcellentMar 22 2021
Pros: Easy pick up and drop-off, great car!Cons: More desk staff at pick up - it took longer than I'd hoped.
10.0 ExcellentMar 20 2021
Cons: It would be nice to have standard cab pickup trucks
8.0 ExcellentMar 16 2021
Pros: Good value for the price and a nice driving Subaru.Cons: Car was fairly dirty on the outside. Also, there was a super long wait for someone to check us out when we returned the car to the airport. We must have arrived during a shift change. Glad we got there several hours early!
10.0 ExcellentMar 6 2021
Pros: Yes very nice people
6.8 GoodAug 30 2020
Cons: Pick up, didn’t originally offer the car we reserved
9.2 ExcellentJul 8 2020
Pros: Went to the counter on the first floor and there was no one there nor was there a sign to go to the second floor. An employee from another company walked by telling me to go upstairsCons: A sign stating the first floor counter was closed snd to go upstairs.
6.0 GoodJul 4 2020
Pros: Friendly yes but they tried to over charge me saying that I was going to return the car 5 hours after I picked it up so they were going to charge me a late fee even tho the car was returned before the 24 hours. Eventually they did refund the late fee.

Pros: Nothing, the location that I was sent to was closed and was not able to rent my carCons: It would have been nice to let me know that the location I was sent to was closed, and actually be able to rent my car
10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2019
Pros: The staff was awesome. The process was quick.
3.6 MediocreJun 26 2019
Pros: Drop off was easy because they were closed and all I did was drop the keys in a drop box.Cons: They had no cars available. They told me to go to the airport location to get a car. The airport location had no cars and said even if they did, they couldn’t honor a reservation for another location.
2.0 MediocreJun 20 2019
Pros: Nothing positive- I took a taxi to the location after booking and there were zero vehicles. I had booked an SUV, but they said they hadn’t had one returned in days.Cons: A vehicle onsite, an apology, or an attempt at a solution. The staff weren’t helpful in the least. Never renting from Hertz again :(
2.0 MediocreJun 7 2019
Cons: The store did not have any rental cars and I left without a vehicle. I was still charged though as the store wasn’t able to give me a refund.
10.0 ExcellentOct 16 2018
Great weekly ratePros: Upgraded to Chevy Malibu. Nice ride, clean, low mileage. Friendly agent!
2.0 MediocreSep 14 2018
We made a reservation but they didn't have a car for usCons: They didn't have a car for us so we had to book with another rental agency last minute and pay a higher fee for same day rental.
6.0 GoodSep 2 2018
Misunderstanding multiple contractsPros: The service that the local office of Hertz provided us was outstanding, and the car was better than promised.Cons: We had three contracts in this transaction: One with Kayak, one with a car-rental website that I had never heard of, and finally, one with Hertz. We wanted to change the contract with Hertz so that my wife could also drive the rental car, so they cancelled their contract and proceeded to write a new one to include my wife. Unfortunately, that cancellation cost us $350 because it only cancelled one of the three contracts, and the other two were non-cancellable. We needed for the agent at Hertz to think through the process and realize that, with Kayak and the other agency involved, we wouldn't be able to alter the contract in any way without creating a new (additional) billing. The process cost us more than twice as much as expected.
10.0 ExcellentAug 26 2018
Pros: Easy transactionCons: N/A
2.0 MediocreOct 2 2017
They Changed the Price at the RegisterPros: They tried adding $130 for a 2 week rental for my Wife to also be a listed driver. It didn't go well after that. Went somewhere else and rented. Not sure if this was Kayak's problem or Hertz's but there's a few steps that need adjustment. Won't be using Kayak again - or Hertz until they get their stuff together.

Top tips for renting a car in Vancouver

  • Car rentals in Vancouver are a convenient way to explore all of the nearby attractions both within the city limits and in the surrounding region. Head to the charming towns of Salmon Creek and Portland, which are easy to reach from Vancouver if you opt to drive. If you enjoy hiking, you will want to go to the scenic Frenchman's Bar Hiking Trail, which is approximately a 20min drive from the city.
  • If you will be flying into the city, you have the option of picking up Vancouver car rentals directly from Portland International Airport. Simply head to the airport’s car rental center, which can conveniently be found on the first level of the short-term parking garage. As it is such a short walking distance from the airport’s main building, you will not need to take a shuttle or taxi. There are a few different rental companies that can be found here, including Avis, Enterprise, and National.
  • Vancouver is known for having a high volume of pedestrians, so always be on the lookout when you are driving. Pedestrian crossing areas are not always clearly marked, so you will want to drive extra cautiously, particularly when you are downtown. If you are in an intersection and the green light is blinking, this is a signal that a pedestrian may be crossing and that you should drive slowly. The city is also home to many cyclists, so keep your eyes open for bike lanes to ensure that you are not driving in them. 
  • The city has become known for having a high level of traffic, particularly along the main roads and including highways 5 and 205. If you don’t want to risk getting caught in a traffic jam, avoid driving along these roads during rush hour, which is considered to be from 9:30am to 10:30am and from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. There is often snow and ice in Vancouver during winter months, so make sure to reduce your speed if this is the case, as well as outfit your vehicle with appropriate winter gear.

  • Unless there is a sign stating otherwise, the speed limit for all streets within the city limits of Vancouver is around 30mph.

Vancouver is known for having many traffic cameras, so always pay close attention to how fast you are driving in order to avoid being pulled over or receiving a ticket.

  • The average price for a gallon of gas in Vancouver is approximately $2.60. To find budget-friendly prices, look for a Sinclair station. There are several different stations surrounding Portland International Airport, including Shell, but these tend to have higher-than-average prices. 

  • While free street parking is generally not offered in the city’s downtown district, you can often find it in more remote parts of the city. Prices for metered parking generally start at around $0.50 per hour. These same spots are free after 6pm. There are several large parking garages in the city center, including Lot #1 Smith Tower Lot, Lot #2 Evergreen Lot, and Lot #11 Broadway Lot, all of which charge around $1.25 per hour. The maximum daily fee is approximately $12.50.
