Portland Guide

Portland is in the lower NW section in the state of Victoria located at the Portland Bay. The whalers and sealers actually were the first to settle in the Portland area, but around 1834 Edward Henty and family were the first ones to actually turn soil in Victoria and they.re credited for Portland, but it is said since Victoria hadn.t been declared a settlement that the Hentys were homesteading illegally.

Henty was the first to plant crops in and around the bay area, but Victoria was not declared a colony until 1851. Before you arrive in Portland, it is a good idea to take care of your car hire, which saves time and many times money. Like so many older towns Portland hit a peak of prosperity and than sort of remained quiet for years . now in the 20th Century it has once again become an important Port.

Portland offers many enjoyable sites for the business person, or those on family vacation . check out the 3rd largest Aluminum smelter in the world. Portland, along with Alcoa, CITIC and Marubeni have joined forces and are partners of Portland Aluminum. The only way to enjoy the Portland area is by doing a car hire unless you.re up to very long marathons.

There are maritime museums, a cable trams that travels to some parks and historic sites. Take a snapshot of Portland.s lifeboat, one of the oldest in the world and take time to enjoy great restaurants and excellent entertainment, because Portland is famous for its cultural diversity.

The Gunditjmara were the only Aboriginal people in Australia that were quiet, passive and super intelligent; they lived in small circular huts made out of stone. The Gunditjmara are still in the Portland area and are excellent agriculturalists, actually they developed a unique irrigation system.

Grab a jet, get a car hire and come visit a town worth seeing . you.ll love the hospitality of the residents and be amazed at the strong comeback Portland is making in the 21st Century.

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
