The state of Oregon is located in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Also known as the Beaver State, its capital city is Salem. Car hire in Oregon means you can check out the most popular tourist attraction in the Southern Oregon which is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, or drive over to Tillamook Air Museum which has the largest clear span wooden structure in the world. The museum is hosted in a former hangar from a military blimp, which adds an additional element to your museum experience and is a great piece of history.
Rent a car in Oregon and drive to the east bank of the Willamette River, just to the south of downtown Portland, where you will find the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Here you can check out the laser light shows at the Planetarium or visit one of the U.S Navy's submarines - the last non-nuclear one on display. You can take a tour of the submarine, look through the periscope, and even touch a torpedo. Head north of Florence to the largest sea caves in America. The caves are home to sea lions that come and go as they please, you may also get to see sea birds and whales.
When travelling along the coast of Oregon it is important to note that the roads are often winding and the highest speed limit is reduced to 55mph. Animals such as deer and elk can appear in the road so make sure that you stay alert for these. If you are driving in Portland, particularly if you arrived via the airport here, watch out for one way and limited turn streets as there are a number of these.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
