Worst rental car experience ever.
Pros: We liked nothing!
Cons: After filling out all of the paperwork we were taken out to the lot to review the car which had a big scratch on the red paint plus damage on the other side of the car. The interior of the car was soiled and interior dirty. We were told there were no other cars available. We decided to go to Avis and had a wonderful experience. A nice clean car with no scrapes or dents.

Screwed again
Pros: Drop off last cation was fine, the car was clean and had no mechanical problems.
Cons: I dropped by a few minutes early to pick up my rental. I wasn't in a hurry and could have waited. The agent told me that my car was ready and gave me the keys. However, he failed to mention that though my rental was $130 per day, it would be an extra $95 PER HOUR! I'm not sure how this is justifiable but whatever, it was never explained to me. This alone would not have been a problem because I returned the car 30 minutes early. The agent in Medford took the keys and told me I was all set. I asked him for the total charge and he said he didn't know and that I'd just have to wait for the emailed bill to find out. When I got the bill I found out that the car wasn't entered as returned until half an hour after I dropped it off and that I was being charged an extra $95. I was really upset and emailed billing support. I got a response from "Janet N" saying that they are right and I'm wrong and there's nothing they will do about it. I cannot recommend Hertz with this kind of customer service and will do my best to avoid Hertz in the future.

Pros: The young woman in Medford was excellent. But there should be no need to play the lottery when renting a car. I took the "way to high "extra charge of insurance to protect myself from Hertz "just in case" Hertz probably sees it as "an extra service" instead of an extra charge. I bought the tank of gas because I needed to catch a plane in Portland not because if was a fair way to do business. I paid 200.00 for two one way rentals, one with Hertz and one with Budget, and only drove them for less than 500 miles in total. I paid 192.00 to travel from Portland to Detroit. Not happy with ripoffs ever, Enjoy my hard earned money.
Cons: It should be law that an auto rental includes protecting the auto company and the customer completely in a fair price. You gave me a rate to get me to book, then handed me a pair of dice to gamble whether I wanted to risk tremendous personal financial personal exposure or pay a ridiculously high fee to protect myself. Airlines should start charging a fee for life vests and access to oxygen masks instead of including them in the price. Not likely to need them, but you never know? As a service industry, car companies are right up there in misleading advertisement. You see the price, but it always cost you double that or more. Unless you are a fan of gambling.

Pros: The Customer Service Agent at the Medford airport ticket counter was excllent. His name was Wyatt and he went out of his way to make sure that we were taken care of efficiently, and with a welcoming attitude. Thanks!
Cons: The Hundai Elantra has good features but doesn't shift very well. Maybe just this particular car, but it would shift into higher gears sooner than it should and then not down-shift as soon as it should have.

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

Annoyed
Pros: I rented a car for my drive home to San Francisco when I got in the car there was sticky residue on the seats. Then within 5 miles of driving the oil change light appeared and continued to pop up my whole try. Was very annoyed specially because I was driving with my 7. Month old

8 Dec 2016
Pros: The Jeep handled well on the mountain curves in inclement weather, held to the road in strong wind. Visibility was good, defrost effective. We like the roomy storage area, and the back doors which opened fully. This was first Jeep either of us had driven, and we found all the panel information, buttons and levers, clearly marked and easy to use.
Cons: The gas gauge did not seem to give reliable reading. We drove a major portion of our trip using, apparently, a moderate portion of available gas. The gas alarm light flashed on surprisingly soon after the gauge registered a quarter tank. We had projected our refill stop, and had to recalculate.

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

Don't rent from here if your are flying.
Pros: Price was good.
Cons: You have to walk ¾ mile away from airport for your pickup and drop-off. They don't have a license from the airport to do business, so refuse to pick you up at the airport or drop you off there. I had to walk down the road to a hotel parking lot to get my pick up. Just glad my luggage wasn't too heavy! Also, the car wasn't very clean and had a broken center console.

Much cheaper than airport location Enterprise
Pros: Car was clean and well priced. Easy to drive. Drop off and pick up were both simple. Employees at the location were friendly and made the experience even better. Definitely recommended.
Cons: We weren't told that they would reimburse us for the cab ride from the airport to the nearby Enterprise location (as they couldn't pick us up due to a deal with the airport Enterprise location). If you do rent from this location, which is vastly cheaper than the airport Enterprise, be sure to ask about that.

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

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.
