Top tips for renting a car in Eugene

  • A rental 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 rental 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 rental desks are situated within the terminal – just follow the Baggage Claim signs and then take a right. The rental 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 rental car in Eugene at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Eugene are around 54% cheaper than other car types, on average
