Everything went well until I had to turn around and get a different car because the first car was making loud noises. The lady (in the garage office) had to check back in the 1st car and issue a new car. Never really told me what she was doing, typed information in the computer, called upstairs & then asked me to check my phone (which was in the car) for an email which I was assuming was for the new car being issued, although she never said. After I came back in, she asked for the keys (which were in the car), so once again I had to go back out and get the keys and bring them in. I then received the keys to the new rental car, Once again, my daughter had to make another trip into the office to have the agent open the trunk of the car I returned so I could transfer my luggage into the new car. This was all extremely frustrating because I was exhausted from traveling all day and still had to drive around to Bremerton Washington where I was staying. Most of the frustration I experienced could’ve been eliminated had she explained to me what she was doing and what needed to be done to get the car exchanged. The initial check in upstairs was great. The agent explained everything about the rental car contract and what I needed to sign. She was very helpful and knowledgeable and obvious to me, great in working with the public. The gentleman who checked the car out for any damage before I left the garage was great, as well as a man who checked the car in as I returned it.

I was initially VERY put off in my Fox experience. A LOT of rental car standards were present, from excess insurance, to potential fuel charges, as well as toll charges, etc... The attendant was friendly, but VERY pushy about these things, some of which I elected, and some I didn't. However, if they had clarified, what you don't use you won't be charged for, I would have opted in without feeling pressured or weighed down. The overall experience reminded me why I dislike ALL car rental, however, when I received the final bill, I was satisfied. Yet, still confusing as to why they were so pushy and intimidating. I wouldn't have cared about a charge that was more of a security (Namely the toll pre-payment) than a guaranteed charge.
2.0 MediocreApr 11 2022
They had a sign up saying their gas price was $4.97 (or thereabouts) and that local gas was $5.97. That was a lie. Regular gas in the area was approximately $4.75. But I fell for it and they charged me $150.00 to refill the tank. That’s $6/gallon if I brought the car back on empty. I asked for a compact SUV and got a huge Dodge Durango. I tried to get the gas money refunded and they said they couldn’t do anything until I returned the car. They said they’d email a receipt and didn’t. I waited on hold for over a half hour. Had to call twice to get the receipt. Dropped the car and was told I’d get an emailed receipt and didn’t. I will never use Fox again. Awful customer service. False advertising. Price gouging. Avoid.

Pick up was easy enough, nice agent. But worse smelling car I’ve ever been in. I’m pretty sure I didn’t sign up for a smoking car— but smelled as if a pack-a-day had been smoked in it for years. I couldn’t believe they would rent a car that smelled like that.

They were super rude and said my confirmation number with Kayak was invalid, tried to make me pay another $180 for my one day rental + $200 deposit. In other words I had no reservation. Attendant would not help me, would not call for assistance, and pushed me aside to help other customers. I never got the car and had to walk 10 miles in the rain in the middle of the night. No joke.

I missed their call and by the time I saw it, it was already too late. Anyway, I’d definitely go back to this Alamo next time I need a car in Seattle!

Quick & Easy Drop OffVery quick and easy drop off place. Then got a quick ride to the terminal.It was hard to find the drop off site by GPS so we had to rely on signs alone. Upon exiting, the road split and it didn't tell us which one to take so we had to ask for directions. Other than that, it was fine.

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.

The staff at SEA were kind and helpful, pickup was easy. I had to call customer service mid trip to extend my rental. Spoke with a few different people who were all helpful, and in the end I was able to get the extra days I needed. Drop off was simple for my early flight. The vehicle was a newer model in good condition. I had no issues with the vehicle and felt comfortable the entire trip.

While we were thrilled to be given a complimentary upgrade, the vehicle we were given, the Volkswagen Atlas, did not have U.S. compatible USB charging in the vehicle, which was frustrating. This was no disclosed to us up front, otherwise we would have declined the upgrade. As a result, I don't think we'll ever rent again from Sixt.

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

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.

When I picked up the car there were scratches and marks all down the passenger side of the car. It was parked in an area where the lighting was very poor. As I left the storage area, I had to point out the condition or the attendant was prepared to send me on my way without noting the condition. I wonder if I would have been expected to repair the coda age if I hadn’t pointed it out at the. Time of pick up? Not very professional by my standards. I think I’ll use another company next time.

If you’re looking for the most unfriendly Hertz employee worldwide, look no further: Darryl from Illinois at SeaTac Airport is your man. During the whole pickup process, he made me feel more like a criminal than like a customer. Apart from the fact that he was extremely rude, he tried to screw me over twice: Once with a USD1,000 insurance he almost had me pay and one for paying for a full tank which makes absolutely no sense for me. If you think Hertz stands for high quality and high service, think again.

Don't rent with Payless, Budget, or Avis. The fee you see on Kayak is not the true price, you will end up paying much more (25%+), since Kayak is not required to disclose additional government/corporate fees at the time of checkout.

Avis had an old printer with perforated paper that took a longtime to print all the documents. What an embarrassment for Avis at a major airport.

Customer service was extremely unprofessional and surprisingly rude. The agent was a middle-aged African American man (I am an African American as well for context) and it was an unsettling experience whereby the agent, who was quite affable with the couple before us, completely changed his demeanor when as we approached the counter (and things went downhill from there).

Extremely helpful staff with a sense of humor
3.9 MediocreAug 22 2021
The guy at the counter was not nice and not helpful at all. Kayak made my life much easier but the prices were very high for any car, probably a pandemic thing. Still better than anything available walk in.

when I picked up the car, the person who helped us was friendly and offered advice for local traffic patterns and tolls the only problem I had was the missing rear compartment cover in the Toyota 4Runner - without the cover our luggage was visible which was not ideal
8.0 ExcellentJun 27 2021
The staff and facility in SeaTac was friendly and efficient. The car was clean and ready to go.The drop-off location in Everett, WA was a rocky lot that is hard to drag suitcases through. The signage of confusing and , although the staff was friendly, they were reluctant to take me to the airport. Their first suggestion was an Uber.

FineThe wait at the counter to actually get a car was over 45 minutes. There were far too few agents working.

6.8 GoodSep 26 2016
Good selection of cars. Easy pickup.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.

My insurance was charged for something I don't feel was correct, it was minor cosmetic damage underneath the car. I felt that this was normal and customary wear. Additionally a 200 deposit was required to ensure I returned the car. The rental held on to the deposit for the duration of the insurance claim even though it was unrelated, the car was returned therefore the deposit should have been refunded soon after. It took another 2 months after the insurance was paid for the deposit to be refunded. I will never do business with this rental company again.
1.9 HorribleAug 21 2021
I could never reach them to get a ride to the facility. I had to cancel after trying for 2 hours and used another agency
1.9 HorribleAug 10 2021
The car we were given had the maintenance light on and horrible breaks. We weren’t able to drive up the hills safely and our rental car could not handle cold conditions and rain.

NothingDon’t call me 3 hours before pick up to tell me you can’t honor the rental. Also hold Economy accountable for having a valid contact phone number. Phone number on confirm is for Zeeba and the other is for an agency in Florida. I live in Kent WA.

I really enjoyed the spaciousness of this Ford Transit 13 passenger vanThe pickup address was incorrect. The van had a transmission issue and it was a very loud ride in this vehicle. I had no drop off instructions.

Plus, travelers get all the comfort, privacy and space for luggage, which is hard to find in public transport means.
  • Acquiring car rentals at Seattle-Tacoma International Airports is an easy process if you have the proper paperwork. All rental car companies operate at an offsite location with free rides from the airport daily. The common airport shuttle bus offers free rides every 5min to the facility, taking about 2min.

  • Once you are ready to return the car rental, input address 30 S.160th St., SeaTac, WA 98188 on the rental’s GPS and drive to the facility. Dropping off car rentals at a different location may add extra charges. Check with your rental company’s fuel policy to avoid extra charges as well. However, if you picked up the car rental with a full gas tank, ensure you return it with a full gas tank as you can be charged up to three times the average amount. Take out everything from the rental before handing back the key. Some companies will send personnel to inspect the car. Since the facility runs 24h a day, you can drop off car rentals at any time.
  • Specific hours and days of the week tend to be busier when picking up car rentals at Seattle Airport.
