Everything went smoothly, the car was what we asked for and in good condition. Returning the car was super easy with very clear instructions. Picking up the car was also fine but the person ringing us up tried very very hard to upsell. I work in sales so I get it but it was almost uncomfortable. Not a huge deal, just prepare to say no a lot if you aren’t looking to upgrade your rental.

Initially the price quoted by Fox seemed better than other companies, but after all the add-ons, it wasn’t any cheaper. They were a little aggressive about add-ons and dental insurance.

My flight was late. Fox was closed. All phone contact for Fox was closed. When I got there the next morning the car I rented and paid in full for 10 days was not there. I paid $390 via Price line in full for a economy jeep compass. The desk staff wanted to charge me an upgrade fee for a dodge charger. I called the Fox office and while I was on the phone the desk staff said he would give me the charger for the same price if I pre pay for a tank of gas. I get home and my credit card was charged an additional $287.81. I plan to dispute this charge to my credit card with Bank of America. Also forgot moms handicap placard on rearview mirror. called and was told some one would contact me. No one did and 87 year old mom has to walk long distances until we get back to doctor for note.

Customer service agent at the desk was great. In creating a Kayak reservation online, I selected SEATAC but was inadvertently directed to a pick up spot in bellevue. The agent helped me quickly get a car I could afford and could not have been nicer. please thank her for me.

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.

What we liked: 1. Dollar had cars when no one else did. 2. Dollar let us change the name on the reservation when we had an airline cancellation issue. 3. Beverly at Dollar's Sea-Tac location gave us a good deal for a week and a day with 2 drivers (we got the LDW, and it turned out to be a VERY good thing). 4. The Sea-Tac Dollar people were amazingly courteous, friendly and helpful every time we needed to speak to someone even though they were super busy and short-handed. What we didn't like: Hm, there really isn't anything that needs improvement:)

The agent who rented me the car screwed my by clearly advising the $4.99/gallon gas offer was only for the gas I used, and not for a whole tank, whether or not I used the gas or not. I thought it was too good to be true, and apparently it was, when I asked clarifying questions at the time of pick up, she assured me that I would not get charged for all 13 gallons, but only the half tank I actually used. When I returned the car, I was passed around from Dollar employee to employee, four times, when I was finally told I would get a manager to call me back. No phone call. No gas credit. Thoroughly screwed by your system so well I have to believe it was the intention all along to mislead me and over charge me for fuel your company knew I wouldn't use. Shame on you. Looking forward to the Yelp review I'll be writing slamming your company.

We reserved an inexpensive car to get around for a couple of days. When we arrived they stated they only had a mini van that's 8 cylinders and if we wanted a different car we needed to pay an additional $20 a day to upgrade. Funny how our upgrade was a Toyota corolla. This is an example of a bait and switch. I will not be renting from them again and caution to all out there, this company is a scam!!!

Kayak quoted me a price for a car that Sixt did not have in stock. It cost me $60 to get to the airport to find this out. The car they did have would have been an additional $500. Apparently this happens all the time with customers referred to them by Kayak- the website does not make sure the cars are available before offering them to customers. A waste of time and money. I will not be using Kayak again.

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 Mediocre29 Dec 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.

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.

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.

I picked up the car in the garage but did not realize things were not right until I left. That was my mistake. The car had not been cleaned at all and only had 5/8 of a tank of gas, not a full tank as was indicated on the paperwork. It took 3 days of calling the number just to contact some one who would listen to my complaint. They noted it in my record and told me to return it 5/8ths full and tell them when I returned the vehicle. The person who checked me back in still charged me for being short on gas and told me to go to customer service. After walking up to the car rental desk, I discovered that they were closed. So now I’m out about $50.

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.

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

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.

So convenient. There were no cars available at the usual rental places near SeaTac airport. So I found next car-Rent a rack by the Clarion Hotel. Really easy. I may just rent from them from now on.

Alex, at Sea-Tac airport, could not have done better. He was friendly on the phone helping me with my reservation, ready for me when I arrived and efficient when I turned the car in. I will use NextCar again.

There was vomit in our car and we couldn’t find the vomit until we were already an hour out from the city. It was dried on the carpet and made the car smell horribly, but since we couldn’t see it initially we thought it had to be something else. When I found the vomit, bags had already touched the area and we had to grab cleaning supplies to clean our bags and ourselves. Horrible experience.

The car had 79,000 miles on it. I have never had a rental car from any agency with that many miles. A warning light came on in the middle of the rental telling me that one of the tires was low on air. This was another first for me. The car had so many dings and scratches the person checking me out commented on the condition of the car. Finally the paperwork associated with the rental was obscene. It was akin to renting an apt or purchasing a house. It was truly amazing. Will not be using Priceline, Fox or Euro-car again.

Deposit still not returned, charged extra on car pFast pick up and drop off.I was charged extra $122 in taxes and fees even though my rental agreement with Eurocar said "due at the counter 0" Dropped off car 20 days ago and still didn't get my deposit as well as 1 day refund as I returned the car earlier

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.

Top tips for hiring a car at Seattle/Tacoma Intl Airport

  • Car rentals at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) are the perfect means of getting from the airport to downtown Seattle, Tacoma or any location you prefer. Car rentals are not only cheap but a fast way of getting around Seattle and its surrounding neighborhoods. With a car rental, travelers are assured of getting to their destinations. Car rentals save you the trouble of catching commuting schedules and paying steep fares. When you get a car rental, you have the freedom to ride to any points of interest, eateries and attractions at any time. 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. If you are from Seattle, the airport is accessible via Interstate 5. The SeaTac rental car facility provides services 24h a day for travelers to pick up car rentals at any time.
  • 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. Rush hours for pickups and drop-offs are weekdays from 11 am to 2 pm during the day and 8.30 pm to 11 pm at night.
