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.

I priced cars directly from the rental car sites, and Kayak definitely provided a better price for the type of vehicle I wanted to rent. I’ll always look at Kayak first going forward.

The price for rental cars this summer is ridiculous but the service and ease of Dollar Rental at Seattle SeaTac Airport was excellent!

Everything was great! Except I feel price wise, rental cars are getting to expensive. I was a little taken aback on how much money I left there.

We booked using kayak link to vip cars. DO NOT USE vip cars. Vipcars precharged me a portion of the rental. After I landed on my flight, I received an email from them telling me they were canceling my reservation with fox. It was 12am and there was nothing I could do. I was stranded with my two young kids. It has been 4 days and they have still not returned my precharged cost. Awful experience. I feel they should compensate me for the time and energy they made me waste.

Easy pick up and dropoff. Quoted price very similar to end of trip charge.The middle seat of the middle row had sand underneath it. Seems like it wasn't removed when cleaning happened.

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.

Hi there. I overpay about 50% for that car because lady at the counter tricked me to buy $100 insurance. She asked me if I want to get some options of insurance or to keep basic. I thought that basic is an option that I selected when making an order via web and for which I don't have to pay extra. But it turned to be a thing that increased overall bill by 50%. I travel a lot and it was my first experience with Kayak. I will try to avoid using your service in the future and warn subscribers of my blog about that kind of sales. Thank you for your lesson. Sincerely, Yuriy

Took 1.5 hours to pick up, even though I had done everything months in advance. Car was sitting out front the whole time. Confused as to why it took so long. Also very unclear where it needed to be dropped off. Spent 15 minutes at the airport looking for the return only to find out it was an off site return.

Car was good. Line at pickup was horrible. SeaTac car rental signs are lacking, got lost multiple times with all the construction.
3.9 MediocreSep 19 2021
The vehicle got excellent gas mileage, what I did not like was that the car had not been sanitized and the wind shield wipers needed to be replaced! All the windows had been wipe with a dirty rag and they where very hard to see out. I had to stop at a station and clean them myself! The vehicles interior was not very clean, you could tell that who ever cleaned the vehicle was in a hurry or did not care about their work! I will not consider renting from Thrifty again, I just did not enjoy having that vehicle!
1.9 HorribleSep 10 2021
Cost was nearly $400 more than advertised. Pickup took over an hour because of lines. The first car they gave us had a maintenance required alarm that popped up immediately. The key was bent and got jammed. I would not use Thrifty again.

Booked a full size SUV for 7 pax and 4 suitcases through Kayak. The picture on the Kayak website was a Chevy Tahoe (or similar). Arrived at the Thrifty rental counter and was given a Kia Sorrento. A cheap, undersized vehicle. In order to get the vehicle I needed (and booked), argued with Thrifty for 35 minutes at the counter. Ended up paying an extra $300 to get a Nissan Armada - which is equivalent to a Tahoe. In process of requesting a $300 refund. Not confident. Classic bait and switch by Thrifty. I will not rent from Thrifty again.

Liked model of car and comfort. Thrifty not aware cruise control not working so affected my 2500 mile road trip. Ad mentions cleanliness of rental due to covid precautions. Driver area was very dirty. Took 3 cleanliness wipes to clean just the steering wheel alone. Overall a good experience. Thanks!

Easy to pickup. However, I prepaid for the rental only to find I was charged an additional $193.00 on my cc statement. They did not email, call or text to notify me about the additional charge or anything so now I am having to try and reach them. Good times…

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.
1.9 HorribleOct 10 2021
There were many hidden fees. I booked the rental online and paid $264, which I figured was the full amount because they mentioned the extra fees on top of the daily price. I also chose the only insurance option that was offered when I booked online. When I picked up my rental, I had to pay an additional $244 for other fees. They also said I shouldn't have bought the insurance that was offered when I booked it, and I had to buy additional insurance through Hertz. If you can book the rental online, everything that you have to pay should be factored into one payment, not split like they do it. It is like they are purposely hiding the extra fees until you are at the rental place and it is too late to do anything else. The car was also nothing special, pretty low quality considering it was $500 for four days. Definitely do not reccommend this company.

I lost my credit card that I originally made the reservation under and they refused to let me pick up the car because I no longer had that card. I had to rebook a new reservation and pay more even though I had already paid. Will not be using Hertz in the future.
3.9 MediocreSep 28 2021
Very nice customer service but the rates are outrageous. It was a substantially lower price online and way more expensive at pick up due to random fees and taxes. It was a tiny little car and I could have spent the same amount of money to buy a car then sell it myself.
1.9 HorribleSep 22 2021
Really amazed at the lackluster customer service-lots of folks "looking busy" while customers waited. And I watched them trying to upsell/bait/switch a young couple in front of me and when they were about to fall for it I happened to mention loudly that they didn't have to pay the upcharge when their reserved car wasn't available. This place is just sketchy.

Absolutely the worst service I've ever had in my life. Choose any other car rental place than this one. Kayak was great with the deals but this specific location was horrifying.

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

Angry with cab ride needed to pick up rental car!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.

Car hire excess insurance in Burien

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Burien car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Burien.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Burien car rental.
