When flying into the Portland International Airport, those who plan to travel about the city and the Willamette Valley often choose to rent a car at the airport. Convenient rental car services are offered by all the top companies who have a presence right at the airport. Many travelers simply reserve their hired vehicle online when they are planning their trip. Renting a car gives people the freedom of independent transportation anywhere they wish to drive in the region.
Convenient and Independent Transportation
Auto renters can go immediately to the car rental companies after picking up their luggage in the baggage claim area of the airport. After a few minutes of paperwork and signing proper documents, a car rental attendant will lead the way to the chosen car in the nearby parking area. After a quick inspection of the car together, the attendant hands over the keys to the renter and the car is ready to roll.
Now, these automobiles receive regular maintenance and a thorough cleaning between renters. In top-notch condition, these vehicles are a pleasure to drive.
Those in Portland on business or pleasure should visit some of the many sites in this region of the Northwest. The "City of Roses" is known for its many interesting bridges over the two rivers, Willamette and Columbia. Short day trips can take explorers through the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge to see Multnomah Falls, to the ski resort on Mount Hood or to Cannon Beach.
When the time to make a flight out at the airport arrives, a quick drop off and checking of the car condition with a friendly and efficient attendant is all that is needed for returning the rental vehicle. The attendant wishes them a pleasant and safe flight and the adventure comes to an end. Travelers leave the ground in Portland feeling very glad that they rented an automobile, going over the different scenes of their visit in this scenic region.
