KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Eugene

  • A hire car is the perfect way to explore not only Eugene, but also other jaw-dropping locations in Oregon that are within reach. A car will give you the advantage of navigating freely across the state without having to depend on public transportation, allowing you to either go west to the Oregonian coast with its wild beaches, or east towards the many national forests of the Cascade Range, including Willamette National Forest, which is a 30-minute drive from Eugene.
  • Most of the big car hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, and Enterprise, can be found at Eugene Airport (EUG), also known as Mahlon Sweet Field, which is less than 12 miles northwest of the city center. The car hire desks are situated within the terminal – just follow the Baggage Claim signs and then take a right. The hire cars are typically parked across the street from the main entrance.
  • Navigating Eugene is pretty straightforward, and you’ll be able to reach most places surrounding the city with a GPS. If you’re driving in the winter, remember you will most likely need good snow tires and chains. Oregon’s highways have “Snow Zone” signs, which indicate the current chain and traction tires’ requirements, so keep an eye out for those. If you’re driving in the rain or snow, allow yourself more time to get to places and be extra alert.
  • Eugene is one of the least congested cities in the country, but you will still see more people on the roads during morning rush hour (between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m.), when people go to work and parents drop off their kids, and then again after 5 p.m., as everyone heads home. The I-5 towards Portland can get quite crowded too, so make sure you plan your journey in advance if you’re either heading there or driving from there to Eugene.
  • Book your car hire in Eugene at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Eugene are around 22% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Eugene

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Eugene?

    A mid-sized sedan is a good option for travelers wanting to drive through Eugene and towards the coast. If you’re planning on heading to the mountains and lakes, and especially if you’re with family or a group of friends, an SUV might be the best option. In the winter, a four-wheel drive is especially recommended.

  • What’s the speed limit in Eugene?

    The speed limit within the city is usually 25 miles per hour (mph), but it may be as low as 15 mph in certain residential areas, so keep an eye out for posted signs. Most open rural highways have a speed limit of 55 mph, and interstate highways have speed limits that range between 65 mph and 70 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Eugene?

    The City of Eugene offers the first hour of parking free of charge, as well as weekends, in any of the many Overpark and Parkade parking garages downtown, such as the Public Library one. The rates thereafter are $1 per hour and $6 per day. Street parking meters operate from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and they charge about $1.20 for 60 minutes and $6 for five hours.

  • What is the cheapest car hire company in Eugene?

    In the past 72 hours, the cheapest car hires were found at Dollar (£38/day), Avis (£41/day) and Hertz (£77/day). In the last 72 hours the cheapest hire car price was found at Dollar 28801 Douglas Drive Ste 8 97402 (8 miles from the city centre).

  • How much is the price of fuel in Eugene?

    The average price of fuel in Eugene is £2.94 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between £35 and £47, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular car hire in Eugene?

Oct 2020

Pros:

The 6th Ave staff was very helpful at pickup. When I arrived to pickup a car, several other customers were there too. The staff kept working until after 5 to adequately take care of everyone. The staffer helping me gave me good advice on a full size upgrade as I'd reserved an economy car that wouldn't perform sufficiently in the mountains where I was headed. At dropoff, I accidentally went to the 11th Ave location. The fellow there was very agreeable about checking the Dodge Charger in for me, and it was so very quick.

Pros:

The staff was very friendly and the drop-off process was quick and easy.

Cons:

Pickup took 50 minutes. I had a confirmed booking for an economy car, but after a long wait, I received a mini-van. The van had a significant amount of dog hair in the rear seat, and only a quarter tank of gas.

Cons:

Told me they wouldn't do a pick-up or drop-off unless it was for an insurance claim. Ran my card for more than the agreed-upon amount causing it to be declined. Once I got that cleared up they said they can only run the card once per day. Asked if they can break a 20 so I can get change for the bus to go down to Avis, and they said they had no cash. Thanks for nothing

Upon arrival, found out my request for car pick up at the airport had been changed to another location. Hertz staff was completely unhelpful. Told me to call the other store. Coming internationally, didn’t have a phone that could call locally. Found a cab on my own to head to another location. $35 and an hour and a half later, finally arrived to the other Hertz location. (Remember I just got off a very long flight from overseas!) although the staff was very helpful, I had to pay extra to be able to drop the car at the airport upon drop off. I was offered a, “Im so sorry, when the airport is out of cars, they do this!” Very disappointing and made my trip exhausting. But most of all disappointed in the attitude and unwillingness to offer any help from the airport Hertz staff.

Renting a car away from the airport was more affordable. After returning the rental car, they were helpful in finding me a taxi to get to the airport.

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The car pick-up at Eugene Municipal Airport (EUG) was very friendly. Especially, the young lady (Amber) at the Dollar Rent Counter at the airport was very helpful. She upgraded our car on our request with reasonable additional charge. This change made our long journey from Eugene, OR to Los Angeles, CA very comfortable.

Cons:

Ref: Rental Record # 596198282; Vehicle: 2019 Chevrolet IMPALA License: CA 8JBG642 Car has in-built GPS, which was quite handy to go to different locations. But for a number new locations it didn't work as it was not updated. For example, it could not navigate us to some new locations in Folsom, CA. So we used our cellphone to drive to those locations. (GPS needs to be updated) The car drop-off was at LAX airport. We drop the car at the shown location. But it was difficult to locate the Dollar drop-off as there was no clear sign and we were in hurry to do it because the drop-off location was not in the airport. Shuttle takes the passenger from that location to the airport. We could see the Hetz sign only. However, on advised of the present staff we park the car at a location and left the car key inside the car as told. As per agreement, before handing over the car there, we filled the tank completely with the gas. The tank was full. (We wish if we could have some kind of written receipt for it. That the staff has taken the car in the same condition as it was handed to us. Gas tank is full, and we owe nothing.)

The car I originally got from my reservation had expired tags. Oregon lifted their offer to be lenient on expired tags in January 2022. Not to mention if I were to get pulled over, I would get a ticket. If I got pulled over by a State Trooper, I could get a misdemeanor. Not willing to risk it, My companion and I had to fight to get a different car with non expired tags. Even paying for the class upgrade ourselves because all of the other cars in the class I made a reservation for that they had available had expired tags.

Car hire insurance in Eugene

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Eugene car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Eugene.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Eugene car hire.
