Pros:

I don't like that the SEA rental facility is off airport, but at least there wasn't a long line at Alamo and the agent was friendly and got my rental papers pretty quickly.

Cons:

It was so frustrating that I couldn't contact the SEA office of Alamo, even on the so-called direct line that had an auto answer saying it was SEA Alamo. Any button I pushed sent me back to corp call center and they couldn't answer questions I had, nor add a booster seat to the reservation.

Pros:

Michael was very friendly, but very misleading in telling me an upgrade to a small SUV would cost $27 for the 3 days, and not $27/day. He also stated that buying the gas ahead of time would cost me about $45 while filling it up myself might cost $65. I was charged $65. I won't be back

Cons:

Honesty!

Pros:

I thought the man at the desk was very friendly and gave helpful directions to me since I had never rented at SEATAC before

Cons:

The car was filthy on the inside, we had to get rags and wipe it down because it was disgusting. Also, the attendants at the car lot didn’t offer help, my car was missing a hubcap when I picked it up and there was no one to report it to, and it was unclear what to do about that, so I just left. When I dropped off the car the return man said that I should have reported it to someone because otherwise I would be charged. He listened to what I told him about the pick up and was gracious thankfully.

I was charged with the lost damage coverage which I had declined and I have had no response from the rep or manager on resolving the issue. Will not be doing business with this company in the future.

I asked for a Toyota Camry or equivalent. They had one, but the agent asked if I wanted to be bumped up to a BMW 3. Between him wearing a mask, having a glass wall between us, him speaking rather quietly and me being 75, I thought he said "free upgrade". Turns out it cost me $150 for three days. Nice car but I didn't need the upgrade and would have declined had he communicated more clearly. Other than that, not a bad experience.

The only downside to my experience was being quoted the cost, paying it upfront and then having it double after the rental. Still try to navigate Sixt’s support which has so far been akin to climbing Mt. Everest.

Kayak quoted me a price for a car that Sixt did not have in stock. It cost me $60 to get to the airport to find this out. The car they did have would have been an additional $500. Apparently this happens all the time with customers referred to them by Kayak- the website does not make sure the cars are available before offering them to customers. A waste of time and money. I will not be using Kayak again.

Pros:

Very quick and easy drop off place. Then got a quick ride to the terminal.

Cons:

It was hard to find the drop off site by GPS so we had to rely on signs alone. Upon exiting, the road split and it didn't tell us which one to take so we had to ask for directions. Other than that, it was fine.

Jun. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

When I finally got my rental car, it was very nice, new, and clean. The girl at the Hertz desk at the Marriott was very personable, and even walked out to the car with me to show me some of its features. I would definitely rent from the Marriott airport Hertz location again.

Cons:

When booking my rental car, I chose the "airport" location in Seattle. Upon arrival I took the shuttle to the huge car rental location, waited in line over 1/2 hour, only to find that I needed to go to the Hertz desk at the Marriott airport hotel. So, I had to lug all my luggage around the rental car building, find the shuttle back to the airport, then find a different shuttle for the Marriott, get there and get my rental car. I was very frustrated as it took over 90 minutes to do this. If there are 2 "Airport" locations for Hertz, they should specify which one!! Next time I travel to Seattle I will know, and will actually specifically seek out the Marriott location. Not only was it less expensive there, there was no wait, and the customer service folks were all very helpful. Hertz just needs to indicate which location you are renting from.

Good selection of cars. Easy pickup.

Cons:

Several vehicles I chose - but didn't drive away - wreaked of cigarettes! Are you guys charging/fining people afterwards when they blantantly disregard the agreement terms that say NO SMOKING - because National is clearly NOT doing anything to actually clean the horrible smell from the vehicles. This is a big problem I always have with National and in general the rental industry effectively encourages people to smoke in their vehicles as the do nothing to enforce - or recitify the problem after the fact.

Top tips for renting a car in SeaTac

  • One thing to consider before heading out in SeaTac car rentals are the seatbelt laws you will find in the state of Washington. Anybody that is either older than eight years old or taller than 4'9" must wear a seatbelt when they are in the car. For kids younger than eight or smaller than 4'9", they must ride in either a booster seat or an approved child safety restraint system. In addition, children that are 13 years old or younger must always ride in the backseat of the vehicle. It is also important to remember that this is a primary law, so you can get pulled over by the police for not wearing a seatbelt.
  • An important law to know about before driving car rentals in SeaTac are laws regarding texting and driving. In the state of Washington, it is against the law to have your cell phone in your hand while driving a SeaTac car rental. You can use a cell phone if you can do so in a hands-free manner. One of the quirks of this law is that you must be able to start the use of your phone with just a single touch. If stopped in your car and parked outside the flow of traffic, you can use your phone normally without any hands-free device.
  • One reason that many people visit the Seattle area and get great car rentals in SeaTac is to do sports on some of the many waterways you will find in the area. The problem that visitors to this area often have is it is easy to get lost, especially when you start heading out to some remote locations. That is why adding a navigation system to your rental is such a good idea. This is also a great time to try renting an SUV or maybe even a pickup truck to take all your fellow travelers and their gear to some of these great spots.
  • While SeaTac does have a decent array of public transport options available, it truly is a car city. With a car, visitors to the city can quickly go from Gas Works Park to Columbia City or anywhere else in the city quickly and easily, as most parts of the city are just a 10- to 20-minute drive from each other. The Pacific Northwest is famed for its natural beauty, and driving is certainly the best way to get to one of SeaTac’s neighboring national parks.
  • Looking to rent a car during your time in SeaTac? At SeaTac–Tacoma International Airport, the car rental facilities are located in a separate facility that is accessible via 24/7 shuttle buses found outside of baggage claim on both the north and south sides of the main terminal.
  • Like most of the larger cities in the U.S., SeaTac suffers from moderate to severe congestion during rush hour. SeaTac’s morning rush hour typically lasts from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and in the afternoon and evening from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. However, congestion is not distributed equally across the city -- roads like the Northbound I-5 and I-405 are among the most congested.
  • Due to congestion on SeaTac’s highways, many of the highways have instituted a number of traffic control methods including ramp meters. Ramp meters are stop lights on highway entrance ramps that allow only one car through at a time at spaced intervals, thus preventing over-capacity on the highway.

  • Book your rental car in SeaTac at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
