KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Seattle

  • After finalising your Seattle car hire for a family holiday, make sure that you’re aware of the child seat laws in Washington state. If you’re travelling with children under the age of 8, they must be seated in a child seat or booster seat in the back of the vehicle. Children over the age of 8, may use the normal seat belt but must be sat in the back. Only when a child has turned 13 years old can they be permitted by law to sit in the front passenger seat of any vehicle.
  • With cheap car hire in Seattle, it’s important that once you’ve made all your arrangements you are aware of the various driving laws, one in particular is the drink-driving law. Note that it is illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol in Seattle, Washington, with the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit being 0.08%. If a driver exceeds this limit, they may face criminal charges, a fine and a suspension of their licence. In addition, note that Washington State has an “implied consent” law, which means drivers have given their implied consent to take a breath or blood test if suspected of drink driving.
  • When you arrange cheap car hire in Seattle, be aware of the vehicle restrictions in place in the city centre. There are a number of policies in place to reduce traffic congestion, such as the Seattle City Bike Network, which include dedicated bike lanes throughout the downtown area, so when driving be wary of bike traffic and cyclist safety. Furthermore, there is a “congestion pricing” program, which charges drivers a fee for driving in particularly congested areas during peak hours. Also be aware of roads closed off to pedestrians and reserved for the use of buses only.
  • 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 hire 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 hire 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 a car hire in Seattle for £38 or less
  • Book your car hire in Seattle at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Seattle are around 7% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hire in Seattle are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average

Go to name brand, and don’t get nickled and dimed at the pickup desk.

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.

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

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.

We drove through Seattle never stopping and the highway signage is equate and Waze and Google Maps had everything right.

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.
AlanSept 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.

If you plan to leave the immediate downtown area, rent a car

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 car hire 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 hire car, then you need to understand that a smaller vehicle is ideal for navigating the narrow streets. Seattle’s hills and small side streets also mean that a subcompact car would be the best option for driving and parking in the city.

  • What’s the speed limit in Seattle?

    When you take to the roads in your hire car, you need to make a note of the strict speed limits in place around Seattle. The speed limit on residential streets is 20 mph, with an increase to 25 mph on arterial roads. You will find many signposts warning you of the limits in place and advising you to slow down. If you are driving close to an elementary school, you can expect to go through speed cameras, allowing them to strictly enforce the 20-mph speed limit.

I wasn’t allowed to pick up the car, I would have put n/a for cleanliness and the others besides pickup because I’m sure it would have been fine if they had been allowed to get it. They said since I was local and didn’t fly in, they wouldn’t let me pick up the car until 7 am even though I was there with my reservation. If I had known, I would have booked with a different service, which is what had to try and do a walk up at 1 am with National who thankfully didn’t have a similar policy. Maybe there was a box or something I missed, but I wish I had known before catching the last train of the night to the rental car facility.

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

My pick up was made for Sea Tac but when I got there with 2 children and 6 bags, I was told that my reservation was for downtown Seattle, and I would have to take the train, that was not an option, the young lady at the counter took her time to help me and got the reservation transferred to sea tac, was so very grateful. Thank you

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.

It was good overall from the moment I picked up the car and the moment I returned it. The only thing that really didn’t work well for me was the amount of fees added to my rental which almost doubled the amount. So much taxes and fees which making me change my mind on renting from the airport and probably pick it up elsewhere.

TERRIBLE! After landing waited 2 1/2 hours in line to be waited on. Tried to give me a car when rented SUV, finally got it-was dirty inside. Talked in to getting prepaid tolls, never was on a toll road. Told agent where was going and he said should do the toll thing-huge mistake. By time everything was done I was in the rental car place over 3 hours!! Will never rent from budget again!!!!

I called Payless to make sure I could pick up a car with my later flight (expected arrival time 10 pm), even though their office hours say they close at 10. The agent I spoke to said "that location allows for pick-up and drop-off 24/7. When I arrived 30 minutes late because of a delayed flight, the Payless counter was closed with a handwritten note to go to the Avis counter to pick up my car. After a 2 hour wait in the Avis rental line, I was required to rent a new car from Avis and was told they (the Avis counter) do not have access to the Payless inventory. Garbage experience!

Once you check in at the counter, you then have to go downstairs to get in yet another line so a car can be given to you. That's an extra step could be avoided to speed up the exit.

Cons:

Everything, I never got the car I rented, I had to rent from Avis. Payless didn’t have any personal working. Could not pick up the vehicle, had to scramble to get to a meeting and rent another vehicle. When I tried to call Payless and remedy the problem, the wait time was over an hour to talk, I have yet to talk to a person to remedy the problem.
