10.0 Excellent14 Oct 2020
Pros: Very good car and staff made big effortCons: There was only ONE agent to serve a dozen people so we all had to wait in line for 30-40 minutes - she did as good a job as she could but should not have been asked to serve that many people. Everyone else was "on break" - popular these days to blame COVID for such - lame excuse.
8.0 Excellent14 Oct 2020
Pros: yesCons: Understand my problem and correct it at the counter
8.8 Excellent1 Sep 2020
Pros: Clean car. Upgraded for free.Cons: Price
3.6 Mediocre31 Aug 2020
Pros: I made the reservation for what I thought was a standard car. The picture of the Nissan looked 4 door midsize but when I got to the counter they said that I rented a compact car. I ask for a midsize and she tried to upgrade me for an additional $150. I refused and said on the car should only be $10 more a week. She said $50 was the best she could do so I paid it. Typically total rip off up-sell.Cons: just given me the same price that you show on the website at the time. Once I left the desk, I saw that I could have just made a new reservation for the car I wanted for just $10 more.
10.0 Excellent30 Aug 2020
Cons: Great deal on a great car. I especially appreciated the unlimited miles.
10.0 Excellent26 Aug 2020
Cons: They should have told us we need to pay extra for the xm radio.
8.8 Excellent20 Aug 2020
Pros: Very efficient and friendly.Cons: The license plate on the front of the car was being held on by one bolt and was loose. Other than that, the car was fine.
10.0 Excellent18 Aug 2020
Pros: Quick and Easy drop offCons: Tell me more about the car features if possible
10.0 Excellent8 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was very friendly! Picked up car in Seattle and dropped off in Alabama! Super Easy!Cons: Drop off times should be anytime during day! We had to have car back by 1 pm which was tough. We were traveling from Seattle Washington to Montgomery Alabama. Day of drop off we were in hotel about 5 hours away. Stressing to get to drop off by 1 pm was worst. We made it but it would be nice if as kind as dropped off on date without time there would be no penalty.
8.4 Excellent27 Jul 2020
Pros: Drop off easy, unlimited milesCons: Pick up was a nightmare, only a couple ppl working, ended up having a long line of ppl funneled to enterprise then to national. Employee didn’t talk to crowd at all to inform or apologize and the crowd/line was constantly asking each other stuff, everyone was confused and in the dark why it was taking so long. Took over an hour to get the car. Luckily we didn’t have to rush off to anywhere this time.

Quick & Easy Drop OffPros: Very quick and easy drop off place. Then got a quick ride to the terminal.Cons: 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.

The Nissan Versa was not in great shape!Pros: I liked the compact vehicle that was easy to park and was very efficient in gas consumption.Cons: The Nissan Versa was not in great shape, with a missing driver's side mirror and it was very wobbly on the road at freeway speed.

Love NationalPros: Wish it was a little more affordable to rent an SUV.
6.8 Good26 Sep 2016
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.

Pros: I loved the 2017 Ford Focus I got. I was great to drive.
6.8 Good25 Jun 2017
Who knew there were 2 different "airport" locations!Pros: When I finally got my rental car, it was very nice, new, and clean. The girl at the Hertz desk at the Marriott was very personable, and even walked out to the car with me to show me some of its features. I would definitely rent from the Marriott airport Hertz location again.Cons: When booking my rental car, I chose the "airport" location in Seattle. Upon arrival I took the shuttle to the huge car rental location, waited in line over 1/2 hour, only to find that I needed to go to the Hertz desk at the Marriott airport hotel. So, I had to lug all my luggage around the rental car building, find the shuttle back to the airport, then find a different shuttle for the Marriott, get there and get my rental car. I was very frustrated as it took over 90 minutes to do this. If there are 2 "Airport" locations for Hertz, they should specify which one!! Next time I travel to Seattle I will know, and will actually specifically seek out the Marriott location. Not only was it less expensive there, there was no wait, and the customer service folks were all very helpful. Hertz just needs to indicate which location you are renting from.
9.2 Excellent18 Apr 2017
Good ServicePros: Easy to pick-up, easy to drop-off. Close to the airport but without the taxes. Service man was pleasant and office was nice in Marrott hotel. No up charges.Cons: A little more than we'd have liked to pay, but who doesn't like to pay less?!
10.0 Excellent10 Nov 2016
Pros: Pick-up and drop off were easy at my location. Only charged exactly as quoted. Nice, clean car that handled well.
10.0 Excellent28 Jul 2016
Great pricePros: Ease of rental, got lucky with a brand new car, nice features, easy system for pickup and dropoff.Cons: Had to walk a bit from the airport to the mariott location as I didnt realize it was an off airport location. However it still turned out better than expected in spite of this.

Pros: NothingCons: Don’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.

Pros: I really enjoyed the spaciousness of this Ford Transit 13 passenger vanCons: The 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.

When to book a car hire in SeaTac

Top tips for hiring a car in SeaTac

  • While SeaTac does have a decent array of public transport options available, it truly is a car city. With a car, visitors to the city can quickly go from petrol Works Park to Columbia City or anywhere else in the city quickly and easily, as most parts of the city are just a 10- to 20-minute drive from each other. The Pacific Northwest is famed for its natural beauty, and driving is certainly the best way to get to one of SeaTac’s neighboring national parks.
  • Looking to rent a car during your time in SeaTac? At SeaTac–Tacoma International Airport, the car hire facilities are located in a separate facility that is accessible via 24/7 shuttle buses found outside of baggage claim on both the north and south sides of the main terminal.
  • Like most of the larger cities in the U.S., SeaTac suffers from moderate to severe congestion during rush hour. SeaTac’s morning rush hour typically lasts from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and in the afternoon and evening from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. However, congestion is not distributed equally across the city -- roads like the Northbound I-5 and I-405 are among the most congested.
  • Due to congestion on SeaTac’s highways, many of the highways have instituted a number of traffic control methods including ramp meters. Ramp meters are stop lights on highway entrance ramps that allow only one car through at a time at spaced intervals, thus preventing over-capacity on the highway.
