Driving in Portland: A British Expat's Perspective

Driving on the Right

Unlike the UK, traffic moves on the right-hand side in the USA. British drivers may need a little time to adapt, but rest assured, it gets easier.

Speed Limits

Speed limits are posted in miles per hour, not kilometers. Within Portland city limits, the typical limit is 20-30 mph on residential streets, 30-45 mph on larger city roads, and 55-65 mph on freeways.

Parking

Parking in Portland can be a mixed bag. Downtown areas and popular tourist destinations tend to have metered street parking, while residential zones require permits. Some public car parks offer competitive day rates. Almost everywhere, the "Parkmobile" smartphone app simplifies ticket buying.

Exploring Portland's Neighbourhoods

A rented car lets you explore Portland's varied neighbourhoods at leisure. Hawthorne Boulevard is known for its vintage shops and hip cafes. Try out the Northwest/Nob Hill area for trendy shopping or Mississippi Avenue for a mix of music, food, and local boutiques.

Spectacular Drives

Take advantage of your rental car and explore outside the city! The Historic Columbia River Highway offers breathtaking river views, impressive waterfalls, and several hiking trails. Alternatively, head to the Oregon Coast Highway for rugged coastline views and quaint seaside towns.

Getting Your Wheels: Car Class Recommendations

Compact and economy cars are great for city driving and have better fuel efficiency. If you're planning road trips, an SUV provides more room, comfort and is better suited for any rough terrain you might encounter.

Portland International Airport

Portland International Airport (PDX) is conveniently located to serve your travel needs. Major international car rental companies have service desks at the airport for easy pickup and return of your rental car.

Portland's Seasons and Climate

Portland experiences all four seasons. Summers (June-August) are warm and sunny, autumn (September-November) is pleasantly cool, winters (December-February) have some snow, and spring (March-May) is lush with blooming flowers. Each season offers a unique driving experience.

Currency and Payments

The US Dollar ($, USD) is the official currency. Cards are widely accepted, and contactless payments are also common. Don’t forget, fuel stations often require a ZIP code when paying at the pump with a credit card. As a foreigner, entering the numbers '00000' usually bypasses this requirement.

A Final Note

Portland, with its unique blend of urban and natural attractions, is an amazing exploration opportunity. A hired car can unlock the city and surroundings at your own pace. So buckle up and delight in the ride!
