Arrived in Medford and Alamo desk was closed but they directed you to National rental desk. National took good care of us and had an excellent rental car ready for us in about 10 minutes. We were very pleased with the service and vehicle that was provided.

nothingI 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.

The gal at the desk when we picked up was very friendly, professional and helpful.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.

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 EscaladeWell 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.

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.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.

Avoid if possibleReservation 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!

Everything was great except the windshield had pitch spots on it in our viewing area and it was so thick and sticky. Tried cleaning it off multiple times but a razor blade or heavy solvent would have been required and being that we were traveling from out of state, we didn’t have that on us. Other than that, it was great.

It is a nightmare rent a car with BUDGET. They provide a fake rent agreement and I had an accident I have 2 weeks with all this problem they never listen.
7.9 Good3 Sep 2021
Pick up was a bit extended because the budget window was closed and I had to pick up through the Avis window. Overall costs were higher than I wanted, but that appears to be consistent with rental cars everywhere. Drop off went very smooth. My rental had been broken into/broken window the night before drop off. The process went smooth and the individual assisting was very kind. Only drop off complaint was there was no Budget drop off location onsite at the airport, and I had to go through Avis.

Staff was friendly and efficient at the pickup location. There was a line, but she kept it moving.Two agents working at pickup would have prevented or shortened the line.
5.6 Okay27 Sep 2020
Car was clean and at least they had one for me. The gentleman behind the counter was nice.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.

Hertz is off-airport at Medford - only Hertz place I've ever seen not super convenient. Shuttle to pick up car wasn't too bad (although everyone else is onsite) but return location is very poorly marked. Also, they charged a deposit on the car - first time I've ever had that happen with a Hertz car.

As helpful as they could be with few staff and early closures during the pandemic.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.

Pickup and drop off were easy. The vehicle was an upgrade. The price was excellent.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.

Car hire excess insurance in Medford

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Medford 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 Medford.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess 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 Medford car rental.

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 hire car of your own is certainly the best way to achieve that.
  • Need to pick up your hire car after arriving in Medford? Travelers landing at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport can find the hire 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.
  • Book your car hire in Medford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

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.

  • 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.
