KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kent

  • Kent, Washington is one of the most beautiful places in the country, situated as it is in the Pacific Northwest, right near the coast. Car rentals in Kent make so much sense because there is so much to explore. Kent car rentals can get you around the city of Kent itself, from Lake Meridian Park to Clark Lake Park to Morrill Meadows Park to the Hong Kong Market, and Kent car rentals can also take you beyond the city limits. You could drive north to Seattle or south to Tacoma. You could drive east into the mountains along scenic I-90 through Snoqualmie Pass or to the West to the Olympic National Forest.  Car rentals in Kent can be at once convenient and exhilarating.
  • If you'll be flying into Washington state and you are looking into car rentals in Kent, you should definitely fly into the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The SeaTac car rentals are located in the Car Rental Facility outside the terminal. You can catch a free shuttle to the rental car agency of your choice. Some car rental companies at SeaTac include Avis, Enterprise, Payless, Thrifty, and many more. Once you have secured your car rental at SeaTac, it will take about a 20-minute drive to get into Kent, located to the southeast of the airport.
  • Kent, Washington is considered a wonderful place to live, as it is a balanced mixture of rolling green hills and views of Mount Rainier combined with easy access to the more urban Seattle. In terms of traffic, keep in mind that many residents are commuting to Seattle for work every day. Therefore, rush hour traffic can become quite busy. Try to avoid major routes during peak hours of commuter traffic, 7 am to 9 pm and 4 pm to 6 pm, and find a more efficient route.
  • In Kent, Washington, it rains about half of the days out of the year. When you look into car rentals in Kent, keep in mind that you will most likely be driving in the rain at some point. You should not only drive cautiously in the rain, but make sure that your Kent car rental is just as prepared as you are. Before you leave the rental agency with your Kent car rental, make sure the wiper blades are in good working order and your tires have traction, since roads can get slick in the rain.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Kent for $38 or less
  • Book your rental car in Kent at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Zach was wonderful in taking care of us. Unfortunate that 4 of his workers were picking up or dropping of people, but because we had to wait, he made sure we got an upgrade at no extra cost. So grateful for the larger vehicle.

Cons:

It was a bit disconcerting to realize the insurance I bought was third party, and we had to do the vehicle inspection for no insurance. Fortunately there were no incidents requiring the use of the insurance.

Pros:

Cons:

I reserved a car for my trip to Seattle. The system actually reserved a car in Kent!!! So I got there and I was told that I had to take a cab to Kent ( aim not from the Seattle are and I have no clue as to where Kent is. However it would defeat the purpose of renting a car. And the clerk told me that there were no cars available, I was not offered the help or anybody called the Kent location to see if they could take the car to SEATAC-No help at all from the Budget SEATAC location!!. So I got on Kayak and reserved a vehicle at the same location I was just told there were no cars available.!! I rent from Budget several times a year btw.

Pros:

It was easy.

Cons:

I didn't know that I had to return it exactly at the time I picked it up. I was told it was to the minute. That added a bit a stress. When I booked it I didn't know exactly when I would be picking it up so I estimated and I got there early and had to sit and wait until that time or extra fees would have been applied. I think there should be some flexibility.

I prepaid for the rental in February to pickup at noon on August 26th, but the rental was not available until 2:30. The Hertz representative on site was not very helpful. I had to call Hertz directly before I finally received the service I needed. All this was happening while my wife and 4 kids were at the airport waiting, and hungry for lunch.

Cons:

The car gas tank was 5/8 full upon pickup, but the card said it had a full tank because we were registered for a car with a full tank and given the key for a car with 5/8 tank. Because the documentation was not corrected at time of pickup we were charged $50 extra for gas at drop off.
