KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kirkland

  • Car rentals in Kirkland offer travelers the flexibility to move around the city and visit their favorite locations and sites. The rental cars also allow travelers to divert from common destinations and head off-road to spots that would otherwise be costly to access. Kirkland car rentals will allow you to travel to Whistler Blackcomb, located about 172 mi North of the city, and Osoyoos, located 165 mi from the city. The car also allows you to travel to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, around 153 mi Southeast of Kirkland. Lovers of campgrounds can use the car rentals to travel to Banbury Green RV and Camping Resort, located 169 mi from Kirkland.
  • If you are arriving in the city via the Seattle/Tacoma International Airport, you will need to have your paperwork ready once you get to the car rental facility. The car rental center is located at a nearby offsite location from the airport. To access the car rental facility, you must board the free airport shuttle that leaves the airport to the facility every 5 minutes. Since the facility is close by, the journey only takes about 2 min. In case you are traveling by road to rent a car at the airport, you can access the airport using Interstate 5.
  • When driving car rentals in Kirkland, you should always stop if the school bus in front of you stops or is flashing red warning lights, whether on the opposite side of the road, your side, or at an intersection. Pedestrians and bicyclists always have the right to cross the road at a marked or unmarked crosswalk and the intersections. If there is an oncoming emergency vehicle, you must yield the right of way, especially when they have red lights flashing. When driving at an intersection with no traffic signal, stop or yield sign, you must yield to oncoming vehicles on the right and vehicles in the intersection.
  • The rush hours in Kirkland start from around 6 am to about 9:30 am as the residents rush to work, while the evening traffic starts at about 3:30 pm to about 6:30 pm. The days of the week with the worst traffic in the city are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you want to avoid the rush hour traffic in the city, avoid I-405, as it is among the busiest roads. The best alternative to the road is to take Lake Washington Boulevard NE, parallel to the I-405.
  • Book your car hire in Kirkland at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

My complaint is not with Hertz but with Kayak. I specifically asked for a rental car pickup at Sea-Tac airport and Kayak gave me a rental that had to be picked up in Bellevue. I would not use Kayak again to rent a car or recommend that anyone else use them because of this deceptive tactic.

Cons:

I was going to drop the key into the drop box, while I see that on the top of the drop box it said that the rental record need to be dropped together. However in the rental record page it said that express returns is not available at all locations. This is kind of confusing.

Cons:

Hertz was good but I went through Kayak to get a rental car from SeaTac airport and Kayak used Hotwire to get my Rental car. I was very disappointed in Hotwire, instead of my rental car being at the Airport, it was in Bellevue, which I had to pay a Taxi $45 to get to Hertz in Bellevue. Extremely Disappointed.

Pros:

Car was nice and staff helpful, Drop off easy as well.

Cons:

When I booked the car, I booked for Seattle Airport. However, when I arrived Enterprise at the airport told that the reservation was for Enterprise in Bellevue (although when I bookked, I specified airport) 40 minutes away. I was offered a car by Enterprise at the airport but instead of original fee of $24.00 I was charged $75.00. Is this a novel way of making money?

Pros:

The garage manager at SeaTav Enterprise was wonderful to work with, all the staff there were lovely and helpful.

Cons:

I never rented in Bellevue, I rented at SeaTac, which you all promptly messed up. I put in my desired location, confirmed, and when I went to pick up the car, the location was completely different. I had to make a completely new rental arrangement at a higher rate. Also, the staff- however friendly- are not communicating interdepartmentally, and sending me emails and making charges on my account without advising me. It’s been a nightmare and a half from start to finish.
