KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Seattle

  • When visitors are making the trip to the beautiful city of Seattle, they may not know about the seatbelt laws in the state of Washington that they should know about before heading out in cheap car rentals in Seattle. When it comes to children, any child up to the age of two must ride in a secured rear-facing car seat. Children between two and four must ride in a car seat with a harness. Children that are over four years old need a ride in a booster seat until their least 4'9" tall. It is recommended that children over 13 ride in the vehicle's backseat. All passengers in a vehicle need to wear a seatbelt while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Since Seattle is in the state of Washington and is so close to the border with Canada, people getting cheap car rentals in Seattle often wonder if they can take the car into Canada. Most of the major car rental companies you will find in Seattle will allow you to take the vehicle into Canada. It is important to let your car rental company know you plan on doing this so that they can provide you with a Canadian non-resident insurance card. There are occasions when car rental companies will let you do a one-way rental to Canada, but it is best to check ahead with your car rental company to confirm this.
  • One of the reasons that many people visit Seattle are some of the great annual events that occur here. Since quite a few of these events don't occur right in the heart of Seattle, this makes a great reason to get Seattle car rentals. We're doing so it is always a great idea to add navigation to your rental to ensure you are getting to the event correctly. In April, many people travel to Seattle for the beauty of the Tulip Festival, and in early July, quite a few people love to make the trip to the water's edge for the Fourth of July festival on the southside of Seattle.
  • Ready to rent a car on your trip to Seattle? Save time and avoid public transport by renting a car that will give you the complete freedom to explore this exciting West Coast city. As it’s flanked by water and is home to mountains, the Cascade and Olympic, as well as lush forests and parkland, Seattle’s unique location and great roads offer its visitors outstanding scenic views as soon as you jump in your car.
  • A good place to pick up your rental car is at the Seattle–Tacoma International Airport. If you’re flying into Seattle, the city center is only a 13-mile drive away. Once you land, finding the car rental office is a breeze. You can use the 24-hour shuttle buses or head to the passenger pick-up areas in the main terminal located outside baggage claim at the north or south ends.
  • As a new driver in the city, you need to be aware of Seattle’s often busy and one-way streets. If you’re driving on residential streets, keep your eyes on the road as they often two lanes often merge into one. It’s also good to keep in mind that pedestrians will expect you to stop for them at crosswalks. Fortunately, local drivers tend to be considerate; but, as this is a busy city, you may have to navigate a few tricky situations including narrow streets, hills, and rainy weather.
  • If you’re not in a rush to discover Seattle, you won’t be affected by the slow traffic that can build on some of the busier streets, particularly in the metropolitan areas. The best time to avoid driving around Seattle is later in the week, especially on Fridays. Rush hour can also hit on busier weekend afternoons. Thankfully, Seattle has a few traffic cameras dotted around its roads, helping you keep an eye on the freeway and other congested intersections.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Seattle for $67 or less
  • Book your rental car in Seattle at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Seattle are around 20% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Seattle are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average

The location is a little annoying to get to, but the people we interacted with were friendly and efficient.

Smallest car possible is best for finding parking and driving in the dense Seattle traffic.
Verified travelerApr 2024
Ferries are your friend and are easier to use than a newcomer might imagine.
PhilippoMar 2024
Downtown location is cheaper and has a better selection of cars.
Verified travelerMay 2024
Smaller more economic cars would be best, gas is expensive. A lot of parking to choose from so find prices that would work best for you.
JohnDec 2023
Go to name brand, and don’t get nickled and dimed at the pickup desk.
ShubhamJan 2024
Drive carefully when raining. The lanes are narrower than in other parts of the country.

Be sure to watch for the changes in speed limits- lots of enforcement happening.

Keep your contract, check your emailed receipt and make sure they match.

Relatively short bus ride to car rental area. Fairly smooth operation.
Verified travelerDec 2023
With the amount of fees they added to the rental, I would recommend getting a car outside of the airport.

Don’t rent with Thrifty. There was a two hour long line about 100 people deep. We rented with fox and we’re in and out in 15 minutes.

The drive around seattle you wont regret beautiful views and lots of local spots its good to rent a car and go out and explore!!

It's nice that you can pick it up downtown and drop it off at SeaTac
Verified travelerOct 2023
Use dollar was simple cheap and easy
ElliotOct 2023
I would only use the rental car if driving outside Seattle, if traveling within city, it would be good to use the public transportation. Unless you prefer to pay for parking everywhere and parallel park.
Verified travelerOct 2023
We drove through Seattle never stopping and the highway signage is equate and Waze and Google Maps had everything right.
JohnSep 2023
Allocate at least an hour to get to the offsite rental facility and to pick up your car.

During the Thanksgiving holiday, we went downtown. There are a lot of 1 way streets, with minimal immediate parking, but ample parking decks scattered around. Don’t attempt to walk from Pike Place market to the original Starbucks! (many homeless vagrants along the way especially there at Pike Place) Drive or take an Uber! Space Needle parking valet is limited, I couldn’t find normal parking. General traffic on I-5 going north added at least 30 minutes.
AlanSep 2023
Parking in Seattle is a nightmare get a small car if possible also people in Seattle can’t drive 🤭
SteveNov 2023
Driving after 3 pm is foolish due to heavy traffic.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Agencies all do things differently so ask about everything BEFORE you hit the reserve button online. Your auto insurance company likely covers the rental car and if it doesn’t your credit card might. Check before you purchase extra insurance from the agency. So many extra fees! Try to rent outside the airport if you can.
krrishJul 2023
Please take your full insurance its better to be get paid some bucks before rather than regret after and believe me its really worth it because if you are going in the group and if the car is under your name they step back for money if anything happens even your are not driving
Verified travelerJul 2023
Seattle traffic is bad but not as bad as we had heard. The ferry system to the San Juan Island requires reservations and the online sign up system is balky. We called and got helpful staff.
Verified travelerAug 2023
The new automatic road toll scheme with Avis where you just pay a service charge on the days you use the tolls is a big step forward. I applaud them for that.
MathewJul 2023
Took a day trip out to Snoqualme. Was better than joining a group tour and half the price.
DWayneJul 2023
If you plan to leave the immediate downtown area, rent a car
Verified travelerAug 2023
Very easy...used Waze to get around. Parking easy to find
DanielAug 2023
Rent from this Avis. Quick service in the am.
Verified travelerJun 2023
HOV lanes: Single line can be crossed, but not double lines. Some areas have tolls that you’d still have to pay if you’re HOV-eligible since the rental isn’t set up with their specific tags. Check your route, because you may be able to go to the flexible HOV/express lanes which split from the main highway. They don’t show as default route options in Google Maps or Apple Maps.
Verified travelerAug 2023
I learned to drive in Houston. The traffic is not bad at all with the exception of 8 or 5 work traffic on the highway. The fuel costs is over 5.00 per gallon.
Heather EmaanJul 2023
If there’s a long line on the main floor, go downstairs to the other counter. A shuttle has to take you to the budget car rental place from the airport.
Verified travelerJul 2023
If they could update their system of billing to accept digital forms of payment this would of helped a lot with this problem I believe ???!!
Verified travelerJun 2023
Lots of traffic in Seattle area. Try not to travel around rush hour. Best time to drive in area is on weekends.

FAQs about renting a car in Seattle

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Seattle?

    If you want to whizz around “Jet City” in the comfort of your own rental car, then you need to understand that a smaller vehicle is ideal for navigating the narrow streets.

I only rented through this company because it was the only option available. The vehicle was already over priced, then when I picked the car up, they added an extra daily upgrade charge for vehicle as they over sold the compact sedans. I don’t hear good things about Fox Rental Car as a company, and my experience surely confirms this.

Easy check in, though directions given as to where to get the car in the facility were incorrect-took 15 minutes to get to the right place. Otherwise, smooth process, great car.

The check in process was SLOW. There was a long line, which was created mainly by a long check in pro chess which made the long line move very slowly. Check in took over 30 minutes, other rental car companies had practically no lines during my wait. Wish I went somewhere else.

Over all, a nice experience. One complaint: The rental agency employees responsible for verifying the condition and fuel level of the car would not leave his booth to verify anything.

Kayak charged me and I had to pay to the rental company too. Save yourself some time, money and trouble and go directly with the rental company. Fox car rental 100% recommended. Do not use Kayak! I have no way of contacting them for a refund!

Your staff was awesome. The phone service to reach the desk/store is horrendous - the automated line just dumped me into a generic “sorry no one’s available” message after trying to call repeatedly for an hour…an automated queue call back would be way beneficial for your team.

Prepaid, booked in advance, showed up and there were no cars for anyone in the entire SeaTac area. I understand this is standard industry practice but it almost forced me to cancel my plans to attend the wedding for which I flew in. Had to book on a carsharing app instead. I did receive a full refund but what I wanted was a dang car.

I paid in advance, but when I arrived at Hertz in Seattle, they had no cars available! This put my family and I in a very bad situation and we ended up paying more than double the original cost to rent from another company. No one from Hertz nor Kayak has returned my calls for a refund. Very displeased with my experience and will never use Kayak nor Hertz again if this is not resolved very soon.

It has been more than 10 days no one called back. I tried to call back but no response. There is no lost/found mechanism. Even though there is no monetary value to anyone of my notebook; it was important to me. Rental car company needs to have better mechanism

The staff in Seattle (pick up location) didn’t honor the reservation. We book a bmw suv, but he was going to give me a 4 doors sedan, a much smaller car. His excuse was that they didn’t have the suv I booked. He said I either get a smaller car or he would cancel my reservation. I asked him if I could talk to his manager but he was rude and waked away. He walked back 5 minutes later and said he checked but there was still no suv. He sternly said if I didn’t like the smaller car, he would cancel my reservation and stated I had no other options. I once again said if he didn’t give me the suv I booked I would report him to kayak since he wouldn’t let me talk to his manager. He then realized I wouldn’t give in so he finally gave me the suv I booked. His excuse was that the car wasn’t available earlier. However, he also gave me the option earlier if I wanted the suv, I would have to pay more. The car was obviously there the entire time but he didn’t want to honor my reservation. It was the worse experience I ever had with a rental car company. I couldn’t pick up the car until 45 minutes later than my reservation

Thank you

The downtown location was horrible. The guy working the counter was great. But they made me walk up the ramp to the 4th floor, walk through a bunch of cars that were parked in the driveway that were very close to each other. Then my car was so tight to the next car I don't know how I even squeezed my body into it. Hurt my back doing so. My paperwork said the car was full but it was 2/3 tank Then I had to drive the wrong way down the ramp to leave the garage. Drop off was very confusing once I got to where they were in the garage. They just had you leave the keys on dash and walk away.

The website allowed me to book the car rental for 5 pm. Well the rental place closed at 5pm! I got there after 5 pm and was not able to get the car. I called Avis and they said I needed to get there by 4:59pm to get the car rental. I had to go all the way to the airport which made the rental more expensive than it already was. The lady at the counter was very rude. The no debit card rule for renting a car from an airport location is ridiculous, Not all of america lives off of credit cards!
