Efficient staff at this location. The car was exactly as described in the rental form (sometimes the description is so loose you don't know exactly what car you will end up with).

power doors and power lift on the van : )

The sale associates are very rude. You can’t questioned anything because they answered pretty condescending. They made reconsidered look for other options for renting a car.
8.0 ExcellentDec 27 2021
The counter agent was personable, engaging and helpful. She also did an excellent job of upselling us into an AWD vehicle for an extra $200 that we didn't need. She said we'd be getting snow and we didn't. Live and learn. The car was ok. Didn't care for its handling.

Great rental center; for dollar, pushy salesperson.
10.0 ExcellentDec 8 2021
Excellent support staff. Helpful at airport. Worked hard to find best options and upgrades for my situation. I rented an economy car and had too much luggage. Really changed my mind about Dollar. I will rent from them again
3.9 MediocreOct 13 2021
Reserved a vehicle for 6 people and the class of the vehicle was too be determined when I picked it up. I contacted Dollar to ensure the reservation would accommodate 6 people, they said yes. When I went to pick up the vehicle I was told it would only be a midsize and would not accommodate 6 people .... Also, was told Dollar does not observe "spouses are included as drivers on the rental" and I would have to pay an additional driver fee for my spouse to be permitted to drive.

regualr service but they will lie to you and saying liability insurance supplement is mandatory charge. And once your sign it, they wont refund you.
2.0 MediocreJan 17 2022
This is a terrible experience. Upon arrival to the rental station the employee found our booking started typing and presented us with multiple insurance options, which we all declined, since we use our Amex for car rentals that has a nice insurance and travel package with it. After declining every extra cost, he presented us with the rental agreement that was 160 dollars more than the quote we signed up and booked via kayak. We asked him why there is a discrepancy and showed him our original booking and rate. He looked at it and told us that he doesn't know and he doesn't care, since this is the rate that he can offer us and all these online sites are always lying about prices and offers !!!!! I told him that I have rented through other online sites multiple times and never had a discrepancy, which is when he told me that this is the best offer he has and we should either take it or go somewhere else. At this point we had no choice but to rent a car that kept going up and up upon adding a second river. From the original quote of 680 bucks we ended up having to sign a contract for 995 dollars. Horrible experience. never again/
2.0 MediocreDec 29 2021
Made a reservation for a SUV and called to confirm there would be one available. Upon arriving at the check in counter at the time of our reservation, we were told that it would be a 2-3 hour wait for a car even with a reservation. Kayak showed a list of available cars for the night and Thrifty was confirming that availability - so this was incredibly misleading and a total waste of our time
2.0 MediocreDec 28 2021
We arrived to pick up our vehicle ti find thrifty closed! We were stuck outside in a 30 degree parking garage with our children and suitcases with no car or any help to rectify the situation. We had to find another dealer to rent from and still have not received our refund. We will never rent from Thrufty again

Great price, compared to other competitors. Seamless pickup and check in processes. Clean vehicle. Quick and accurate final billing process, including emailed final invoice. Will gladly do business w/ Thrifty again at SEATAC.

Everything went fast and was easy. Will rent from them again in the future for sure
6.0 GoodNov 16 2021
The rental agent was friendly, professional and as efficient as possible. She upgraded me to a sedan from an economy! 😊 There was only one rental agent when I picked up the car at 9:00 pm with four people waiting in front of me…. and six behind me. The driver’s seat was pretty far back and could not be adjusted forward. Fortunately, I’m 5’8” and with my leg fully extended was able to reach the pedals, but would have preferred being a few inches closer. The car was very clean except the interior windshield had streaks in it making visibility a bit more challenging during two horrendous rain storms. I would rent from Thrifty again.
8.0 ExcellentNov 9 2021
We had to haul our luggage on & off shuttle to car rental terminal off site.The line was very long when picking up our car. Had to stand in line for over 45 minutes. The agent was very courteous and provided excellent service. The van was not completely cleaned. There was food under seats and the faint smell of vomit in the morning when it was left locked up for the night...yuck! There was an oily film on inside of windshield which we had to buy 3 products to clean it (still never came 100% clean). This could be very dangerous night driving. It made it an unwelcome challenge to already weary driver. Speaking of dangerous, we had to replace the windshield wipers the second we got the van as they were shot and leaving the windshield more blurry than the film caked on the inside. I feel like they should have known to replace the wipers. Not cool to have to locate, purchase out of pocker, and install ourselves. IT IS SEATTLE after all and a "cyclonic bomb storm" was forcast with 100% chance of rain.
1.9 HorribleOct 9 2021
We had to wait in a line for 45 minutes just to get the car. We felt the associate kept trying to upcharge us on options. We rented a luxury SUV and got one… that was probably 10 years old. It was nice but not what we thought we signed up for or worth the money.

They charged me double what we agreed to and I’m mad as hell.
8.0 ExcellentMay 8 2022
Car was clean and performed just fine. YThe setup was convenient and relatively fast. On the other hand, the clerk was pretty aggressive about trying to upsell me to models and features I had no interest in. I was initially handed a bill about twice what I had bought the rental for online, and it took two more tries before I got the lower priced option I wanted.
2.0 MediocreApr 2 2022
I read the one star reviews before coming in & wish I would’ve went elsewhere. The staff was extremely rude. He did have to end up rebooking my rental because I did it incorrectly (long story) but he failed to tell me that I’d still be charged 570$ for only using the car a few days, because he had booked my reservation for a week. I asked what the price was for a few days & he INSISTED on having me do the week rental. I asked multiple times what the penalty for returning early was, to which he said nothing. I paid $570 for a rental starting in the morning of the 25th & dropped it off the 27th at 440pm. Ridiculous price & rude staff. Go somewhere else!
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2022
Dropped off car 3 days early. Hertz dealer was very interested in the vehicle as he had a waiting customer for it. Said I should get a 3 day rebate on the rental. He was wrong. Hertz will not refund for an early drop off. Family emergency had no bearing on their decision. Never use this company.
6.0 GoodMar 29 2022
Hertz customer service personnel was polite and efficient. However, car originally booked was not available and I had to top up for the next available vehicle which was an upgrade. Furthermore my deposit of 200USD is still being held even after 5 days since I have returned the car.

Found a far better rate online than at the counter. There was limited competition as most companies were out of vehicles due to flight cancellations due to fog.

The drop off experience in Portland was confusing and frustrating
2.0 MediocreOct 21 2021
Easy to pickup. However, I prepaid for the rental only to find I was charged an additional $193.00 on my cc statement. They did not email, call or text to notify me about the additional charge or anything so now I am having to try and reach them. Good times…

Staff was friendly and it was a smooth in and out compared to airport! I will do this again and avoid renting at airport!I got fast service but the guy after me had to wait bcuz my car was being vacuumed out. They had only 1 guy helping and the other customer looked agitated as he went to find someone after waiting 10 minutes. Can’t please everyone. Maybe it was lunchtime?

5.2 OkayJul 20 2016
Angry with cab ride needed to pick up rental car!We did not expect to have to take a cab from the airport to pick up our rental car! We also did not expect to have to return the car to the same location requiring another cab to get us back to the airport! Our reservations were made through Kayak to pick up the rental car at the airport so we were very angry when they did not have a car for us.
