KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bellevue

  • Renters of cheap car rentals in Bellevue will relish the 24-hour rental services at the car rental center at Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Bellevue is about 18 miles from SEA, a drive of about 35 minutes via I-405N. The rental car center is at an off-site location. After getting off the plane, head to the baggage claim area and exit at doors 15 or 2. A rental shuttle bus departs every 5 minutes for the rental car center, about two miles away. Once at the rental facility, take the escalator to level 2, where you will locate rental counters of agencies like Budget and Avis. Pick up your rental at the level 1 parking garage of the rental facility.
  • Travelers entering Bellevue via road or train can acquire cheap car rentals in Bellevue at the Downtown Train Station. The station is located at Northeast 6th Street and serves the entire downtown Bellevue area. The station provides entrances at 110th Avenue Northeast on the east and 112th Avenue Northeast on the west. Car rental agencies have offices on both sides, giving you several options for providers. For instance, Budget is located on 116th Avenue Northeast, while Enterprise is on 140th Avenue Northeast. The rental pick-up location for these agencies is on-site, just a short walk away.
  • Interstate 405 connecting Bellevue and Lynnwood and State Route 520 Bridge running over Lake Washington and connecting Bellevue to Seattle require tolls. These tolled roads provide the main exit and entry to the city for Bellevue car rentals. I-405 Express Lanes provide drivers with a faster route compared to regular lanes. The lanes are tolled Monday through Friday from 5 am to 7 am but remain free during the weekends and overnight. Motorcycles and carpools of at least two people are exempted from paying tolls on the I-405. On the other hand, the SR 520 road is tolled 24/7. All users, including motorcycles and carpools, must pay tolls. No toll booths are available on the road; only electronic payments are accepted.
  • Whether you are traveling to Bellevue, Washington, for leisure or a work-related trip, many attractions within the city may interest you. You can stop at the Bellevue Botanical Garden on Main Street in Downtown Bellevue and enjoy the refreshing scents of hundreds of plant and flower species. The botanical garden is just 17 miles away from the Seattle Tacoma International Airport. Consider checking out the Bellevue Art Museum and admire a wide selection of contemporary visual art and design. Lastly, you can't afford to miss the expansive Bellevue Downtown Park, a 20-acre long recreational park in the heart of the city and just 17 miles from the airport. You can get to all these exciting places by bus or taxi. However, you'll have to contend with exorbitant fixed taxi prices. Furthermore, some bus lines only service specific routes. A better option would be renting a car through Bellevue car rentals. This will accord you the convenience and flexibility you need to run your schedules more efficiently.
  • When you land at the Seattle Tacoma International Airport, you'll find nearly 10 onsite car rentals in Bellevue. They include Avis, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, Fox, Payless, Thrifty, and E-Z Rent-A-Car. They also have offices in other locations in and around the city. Depending on where you want to rent your car, these car rentals in Bellevue provide shuttle and pick-up services to their respective rental offices.
  • Overall, traffic conditions in Bellevue may change depending on the weather elements. If you visit the city during winter, expect ice on bridges and overpasses, especially at night when temperatures cool down. Other elements include rain and mist. We encourage you to drive carefully under such circumstances. Most roads in Bellevue have pedestrian sidewalks and bike lanes. When driving on roadways without these sections, always exercise caution as most pedestrians have a habit of jaywalking and texting on their phones. Also, exercise due care and yield to other road users at intersections to avoid unpleasant experiences.
  • Being a populous city in Washington, Bellevue experiences heavy traffic on peak hours between 6:30 to 9am and 4 to 7:30pm. The roads with the most traffic gridlocks during such hours are I-5, I-405, and 8th Street.

  • Mini rental cars in Bellevue are around -77% cheaper than other car types, on average

10.0 Wonderful

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

This is a little unfair if this goes to Enterprise itself... this is absolutely directed at Kayak. I booked a flight to SEATAC airport, then added a rental car. I would have assumed that the car rental would be AT the airport, not 30 minutes drive away, at a car rental place that closed their office shortly after my plane landed. This was only evident to me after took the bus to the rental counter and stood in line for a long time. Then find out they were out of cars and my reservation was across town in Bellevue. The results of this was that I had to take an Uber ($45) to Bellevue and then an additional charge to return the car to the airport ($75). As well as the hurry and anxiety of the process.

Cons:

Make it 100% clear during the booking process that the rental car was at a site far away from the airport.

6.4 Okay

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was nice and staff helpful, Drop off easy as well.

Cons:

When I booked the car, I booked for Seattle Airport. However, when I arrived Enterprise at the airport told that the reservation was for Enterprise in Bellevue (although when I bookked, I specified airport) 40 minutes away. I was offered a car by Enterprise at the airport but instead of original fee of $24.00 I was charged $75.00. Is this a novel way of making money?

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was fairly new with low miles.

Cons:

There were potato chips left half-eaten and spilled on the floor in the backseat from the previous renter. This makes it clear that the car was not cleaned well between customers - which is a serious concern due to COVID-19.

Pros:

The garage manager at SeaTav Enterprise was wonderful to work with, all the staff there were lovely and helpful.

Cons:

I never rented in Bellevue, I rented at SeaTac, which you all promptly messed up. I put in my desired location, confirmed, and when I went to pick up the car, the location was completely different. I had to make a completely new rental arrangement at a higher rate. Also, the staff- however friendly- are not communicating interdepartmentally, and sending me emails and making charges on my account without advising me. It’s been a nightmare and a half from start to finish.

I was going to drop the key into the drop box, while I see that on the top of the drop box it said that the rental record need to be dropped together. However in the rental record page it said that express returns is not available at all locations. This is kind of confusing.

Cons:

Hertz was good but I went through Kayak to get a rental car from SeaTac airport and Kayak used Hotwire to get my Rental car. I was very disappointed in Hotwire, instead of my rental car being at the Airport, it was in Bellevue, which I had to pay a Taxi $45 to get to Hertz in Bellevue. Extremely Disappointed.

The kayak site said the bellevue budget rental at hilton is open up to 4 pm on sunday. I booked the car for 3 pm. I got a reminder from the budget office that my car is ready to be picked up at 3 pm!! It also had the working hours listed as open until 3 pm on sunday. Yet, when I went there at 3 pm, the hotel people said the car rental desk closes at 2 pm on Sunday. So, i ended up wasting a ton of time going there, trying to call the Budget main office to see where i can pick this car from and every time the line would get in the middle as though Budget did not want to be bothered about it.

I did NOT rent from Avis. My intention was to rent an Avis car at Sea-Tac airport thus I selected Sea-Tac airport. Avis app steered(ahem) me to a vehicle in Bellevue by switching the pickup location as I worked through the reservation process. I believe I fell victim to a” bait and switch” where the search process shows cheap rental rates close to desired pickup location without highlighting the change thus ensnaring me as a customer. I canceled with Avis and rented elsewhere.
