Car rentals in Portland are $$$$$
« on: July 13, 2010, 12:24:18 PM »
What's up with Portland rental rates? $100 a day for a car that's $30 in Boston. Any trick to this, or am I about to be bent over? thanks, Dean

Just a suggestion - drive from Boston. I love road trips.

Alcohol - because no good story starts with a salad.

Good idea, but I booked my flight before checking on the car. I may have found a cheaper option, will report back.

Let us know.  Well me, as I am going to Portland at the end of August.

I will have free time Sunday afternoon, evening.  Any LSR things to see?  Racing interest places to visit?

Will weld for beer.  Will BS for beer too!   :cheers:

OK, the trick is to rent in Portland, but not at the airport. I just booked a car at Enterprise (3 miles from the airport) for $20 a day.

If you travel you ALWAYS should check the airport rental against a rental in town. It has been worth a taxi ride in the past to save some money.
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.
