KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tukwila

  • Tukwila is a sprawling city with many popular attractions. Renting cheap car rentals in Tukwila ensures that you have the flexibility and convenience to explore the city comfortably. You can easily plan your itinerary and move around the city at your own pace without worrying about the schedules of other transport options. In addition, many popular attractions in and around Tukwila are easily accessible by car. For instance, the Space Needle, one of the most famous landmarks in Seattle, is just a 25-minute drive from Tukwila. Similarly, a trip to the beautiful Mount Rainier National Park is easier and more comfortable with Tukwila car rentals.
  • Seattle/Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is the airport that serves Tukwila. It is only 3 miles away and the rental car companies at SEA Airport are located at a centralized rental car facility near the airport. The rental car companies located at the Rental Car Facility include Alamo, Avis, Dollar, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, Payless, National, and Thrifty. To get to the Rental Car Facility, passengers may follow the signs leading to the parking garage, and take the sky bridge to the third floor. There, they will find a shuttle bus service that runs between the garage and the rental car facility. The shuttle ride takes approximately 5-7 minutes.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Tukwila, it's important to keep an eye out for unique road signs. The city has signs for HOV (High Occupancy Vehicles) lanes that allow only vehicles with two or more occupants during certain hours of the day. The city also has many bike lanes, and it's common to see people cycling around the city. Drivers should therefore be aware of cyclists and give them enough room when passing. It's also essential to yield to cyclists at intersections, as they have the same rights as cars.
  • Tukwila, WA is located in the greater Seattle area and experiences heavy traffic during rush hour, typically between 7:00 am-9:00 am and 4:00 pm-7:00 pm on weekdays.

During the winter season which is usually between November to February, the greater Seattle area can experience heavy rain, occasional snow, and strong winds. Snow and ice can also make driving cheap car rentals in Tukwila difficult, particularly on hilly roads and in areas that don't get treated as often, so it is important to prepare your car for winter driving conditions by equipping snow tires and carrying chains.

Loved the speed of the rental process. Speed at the reservation desk was quite good - maybe 3-4 minutes. Got off the elevator, spoke to a rep and were driving out in less than 5 after that. Fastest rental experience I've had. Even got to pick our vehicle, and picked the newest one with all the features...which my kids LOVED!

Pros:

Staff was nice.

Cons:

The cars weren’t spotless, but that wasn’t a problem for me. We did get have to exchange cars due to a tire issue. We called ahead and discussed it with E-Z Rent-a-Car. They said they made a note on our profile and there would be no problem coming back and exchanging the car. When we got there, they didn’t seem to know what we were talking about and we spend a little longer than necessary due to some confusion about the exchange. Worked out in the end.

Pros:

Easy drop off

Cons:

Car smelled terribly of smoke, super long wait at pickup while the only staff st the desk was chatting with the only customer in front of me, stating “I’m taking my time to see if a car comes in for you”. I had already reserved and paid online, to “save time” the website said.

6.8 Okay

Cons:

They did not have my car available for me when I arrived to pick it up. That is the first time that has ever happened to me in 30 plus years of renting cars. They clearly did not want to upgrade me to a larger vehicle. Eventually my car became available.

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.

Only one employee to take care of a extremely long line of tired customers to pick up rental. Rented a premium elite SUV. Told a first counter we were getting a BMW. Went upstairs to pick up said it wasn’t ready yet. Employee said it would be 15 minutes, then later they brought a dirty VW Atalas said it would be a while if we didn’t take it. Had a used water bottle left in it. The reservation had Been made months ahead. The drop off employee was nice and drop off went better, but we will never rent from National or any business associated with them again. I feel like the pick up part of the business is very poorly ran. Having pretty young girls there in heels trying to get you to take the SUV that is not in the class you paid for doesn’t make it worth it. You are still getting cheated and it is poor business tactics. NEVER RENT FROM NATIONAL AGAIN😫

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.
