KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Burien

  • Driving car rentals in Burien is a fantastic way to see this city on the western shores of Washington State, just outside Seattle. More convenient and faster than public transportation, Burien car rentals will allow you to keep your appointments, visit friends and family, and see the local sites, such as Seahurst Park, the Hydroplane and Race Boat Museum, and the Aviation Pavilion. Car rentals in Burien will give you the freedom to drive north to Vancouver, south to Portland, or east to Spokane.
  • Situated less than 5 miles southeast of Burien, the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) makes an ideal location for securing car rentals in Burien. In order to access the rental car facility at SeaTac, go to either end of the arrivals curb. You can catch the free shuttle bus to the rental car facility at the stop near Alaska Airlines or the stop near the international airlines. The shuttles run frequently, 24/7, 365 days a year. After you return your Burien car rental to the rental car facility, the shuttle can take you back to the terminal.
  • For those driving car rentals in Burien, keep an eye out for pedestrians, especially in the downtown area, where people walk, shop, talk, and gather for frequent festivals. Cycling is also quite popular in Burien, so remember to share the road with people on bicycles and always give them the right of way. Because Burien is in the Seattle metropolitan area, traffic can get congested, especially during peak rush hours of 7 am to 9 am and from 4 pm to 6 pm.
  • As Burien is situated in the Pacific Northwest, it gets a lot of rain. For those driving car rentals in Burien, remember two important things: visibility is reduced in the rain, and it takes longer to stop when roads are wet. Therefore, drive carefully and cautiously, always leaving more room on the road between you and the other vehicles. If you should run across any downed power lines in a storm, remember to never drive over power lines. If any section of the roadway is flooded, don't drive through it, since you don't know how deep it is or what is under the water.
  • Book your car hire in Burien at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice hire cars in Burien are around 63% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff was friendly and it was a smooth in and out compared to airport! I will do this again and avoid renting at airport!

Cons:

I got fast service but the guy after me had to wait bcuz my car was being vacuumed out. They had only 1 guy helping and the other customer looked agitated as he went to find someone after waiting 10 minutes. Can’t please everyone. Maybe it was lunchtime?

Cons:

We did not expect to have to take a cab from the airport to pick up our rental car! We also did not expect to have to return the car to the same location requiring another cab to get us back to the airport! Our reservations were made through Kayak to pick up the rental car at the airport so we were very angry when they did not have a car for us.

Everything went smoothly. The only option for renting on a weekend, Sunday, was at the airport. A local office would be nice. Light rail access to the airport made this possible.

I don’t set the bar very high for car rental experiences, but this was the worst I’ve ever had. I waited almost an hour and a half for my car with only three others in line. The issue was that Hertz removed chip readers from their card scanners. They were blaming multiple credit card declines on each customers. I almost was not able to rent my vehicle because of an issue with their card readers. I was not the only customer with this issue. I was offered (and paid for) one vehicle, and once everything was closed out they had me wait for my car. Finally, they pulled up with a different vehicle entirely. This was an unacceptable experience. Everyone in the location was friendly, but frankly brain dead.

Hertz didn’t have the vehicle I reserved and wouldn’t honor Kayak’s price. They down sold me to a lower class and doubled the booking fee just to let me have a car.

Cons:

They told me they didn’t have a car. They tried to charge me more money. And then they tried to give me a cargo van instead of a car. The place was filthy. The reservation did not say they closed at 5:30 nor that (according to them) I only had a 60 minute window to pick up the car.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing at all. I kept calling to confirm my rental. They would answer the phone and leave me on permanent hold. I finally went there to pick up the car without talking to anyone and they had no car for me. My options were either to pay $50 additional per day or $20 additional per day. When I arrived I had to wait in line to not pick up a car. Meanwhile I watched the guy picking up the phone and putting people on permanent hold. I tried to call Kayak but they're closed on the weekends. I later read online hat Kayak doesn't guarantee price or availability. Hertz didn't cancel the car rental so my card was still charged, now I'm dealing with calling into their billing department to cancel it after the fact.

Cons:

1. if they don't have the car I received they need to contact me by any means possible as soon as possible. Computers can do this... 2. if I arrive and they don't have a car in the same class I reserved, they need to give me whatever the next car closest to the class I reserved. 3. if they cannot do any of that for some reason, they should apologize for the inconvenience and arrange a car with the next nearest rental location. 4. not waste my time

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing; honestly the worst rental car I’ve experienced in years. It’s not just Hertz problem, it was Kayak and Priceline for letting Hertz get away with making me pay to not get a Cargo Van.

Cons:

There were 5 travelers in a row ( I was 4th) that used Priceline / Kayak; and we all waited 45 minutes to 1.5 hours to get vehicles we didn’t request at a higher than advertised price.
