Not the car I reserved
Cons: I reserved a mid-size - specifically I was told a Nissan Murano - however they had none and my choice was a compact, truck or minivan. I took the compact which was fine although the usb port for charging my phone did not work. Additionally, the car while clean, smelled like cigarette smoke.

Upgraded to a new Camry. Ran like a charm, no problems, no hassles.
Pros: We were upgraded to a nicer car. People were helpful and friendly. Did not stick us with any surprise fees. Have been loving Alamo for years.
Cons: Contract is pages and pages. Try to sell you insurance, pre paid gas tank refill, etc. Got my reservation return times wrong twice and tried to charge me for the change. Otherwise, great!

Exorbitant cost to ship back item left in car
Pros: Car was good, service on site was good.
Cons: Passenger left a camera in the car. I was charged $71 to ship the camera back to its owner in Canada. My credit card was charged before checking with me on the shipping cost first. This was as much as the entire weekend car rental! I would have appreciate a call before proceeding with the shipping charge. I would have had the camera shipped to me in the US otherwise or asked for cheaper shipping options. I was a bit surprised because Enterprise prides themselves on great customer service. This was a miss, in my opinion.

Disappointed- SEA-TAC to Vancouver
Cons: I rented the car to get from Seattle to Vancouver- they gave me a tiny compact Nissan because it had Canadian plates-yet still charged me an additional $200 for returning it for them. They should have at least removed the drop-off fee- or given me the car that I had originally selected.

2 hour wait
Pros: My wife and I arrived at Seattle at 11:00pm , Enterprise was closed and they steered all the customers to Alamo , we made our reservations for a car days before , unfortunately all that was for nouthing, it was like we were new customers at Alamo , all the enterprise customers had to rent from Alamo, the only good thing that came out everything was that Alamo honored the price from the reservation.
Cons: The process

Great price
Pros: Ease of rental, got lucky with a brand new car, nice features, easy system for pickup and dropoff.

Who knew there were 2 different "airport" locations!
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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: Don’t call me 3 hours before pick up to tell me you can’t honor the rental. Also hold Economy accountable for having a valid contact phone number. Phone number on confirm is for Zeeba and the other is for an agency in Florida. I live in Kent WA.

Top tips for renting a car in SeaTac

  • 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 petrol 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 hire 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 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in SeaTac?

Fortunately for large families planning a trip to SeaTac, the roads in SeaTac can accommodate all sizes of vehicles. From SUVs to sedans, you will have no issue navigating the streets of SeaTac. Part of this is because of the relative youngness of the city; unlike many of the older cities in the US, SeaTac, for the most part, lacks the tiny one-way streets and alleys that are so typical of older cities.

What's the speed limit in SeaTac?

SeaTac’s urban areas feature the standard range of speed limits from 25 mph to 50 mph, depending on the road size. However, one detail to take note of is that many of the highways in SeaTac have lower speed limits than what you would see in other cities in the U.S. Many of the speed limits are adjusted actively, depending on the traffic conditions.

How are gas prices in SeaTac?

SUV and truck drivers will be sad to hear that petrol prices are not cheap in SeaTac. In fact, SeaTac’s petrol prices on average rank among the highest in the U.S., with the average price sitting between $3 - $3.50 per gallon.

Where are the best places to park in SeaTac?

Parking in downtown SeaTac is quite easy compared to other large cities in the U.S. Drivers will find that there is ample streetside and garage parking available throughout the downtown area and in other popular districts in the city. Parking garages are especially a good option if you plan on visiting sites such as Pike Place Market.
