KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Port Angeles

  • Driving car rentals in Port Angeles is a wonderful way to see this small city on the northern coast of Washington state, located just across the Salish Sea from Canada. In Port Angeles car rentals, you can see the people and places you'd like to see according to your own schedule. You could enjoy local sites, including Port Angeles Underground And Heritage Tour, Olympic Coast Discovery Center, and the Port Angeles City Pier. Car rentals in Port Angeles give you the freedom to drive east to Spokane, south to Portland, and north to Vancouver.
  • Located less than 5 miles from downtown Port Angeles, the William R. Fairchild International Airport (CLM) is a convenient place for securing car rentals in Port Angeles. In the small, one-terminal airport, you can find a counter for Budget in the arrivals section near the baggage carousel. The rental cars are parked outside the terminal in the airport parking lot, which is where you will also return your Port Angeles rental cars.
  • Port Angeles is a vibrant small town with a strong sense of community and a mild climate. Those driving car rentals in Port Angeles should beware of pedestrians, especially downtown where there are often open-air markets and festivals. Also, beware of people cycling and always give cyclists the right of way. Port Angeles experiences more a traffic congestion than usual during the peak rush hours of 7 am to 9 am and then from 4 pm to 6 pm, especially on and around Highway 101.
  • If you are traveling from Port Angeles on the Olympic Peninsula across the sound to Seattle or Tacoma, you might cross the Narrows Bridge into Tacoma. There is a toll on this bridge, as well as on the I-405 just across the sound. Consider investing in the toll pay program offered by your rental car company to avoid getting a fine for not paying a toll. If you try to pay the toll with your own transponder and it doesn't register, you could get a ticket for over $50. If you plan to drive into Olympic National Park in the winter months, beware of possibly heavy snowfall. While there is not much snow in lower elevations, Hurricane Ridge, just a 41-minute drive from Port Angeles, gets hundreds of inches of snow per year.
  • Book your car hire in Port Angeles at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in Port Angeles are around -56% cheaper than other car types, on average

Port Angeles car hire experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Port Angeles 
Verified travelerOct 2023
Rental location perfect to get on HWY 101. If not in shape or have lots of luggage you need a Taxi to get from Black Ball Ferry Terminal to car rental.
Verified travelerJun 2023
The ferry is about 10 city blocks, almost a mile away. No cabs in sight. Be prepared for that.

Web site indicated pick up at the Port Angeles Ferry Terminal. When we called they said that this service is no longer available. When dropping off the car we asked to use a washroom. Not available onsite. Sent us to a convenience store/gas station. That station was closed!

Over all we were pleased. It would have been helpful to be accompanied from the office to the vehicle to help find it and to have a quick explanation of the set up in the car. Otherwise 👍😊.

Cons:

The pick up was unorganized and took a bit for anyone to acknowledged me. They seemed to be understaffed and not aware of what was going on. The office was extremely hot and was not well kept.

Cons:

They told us we would have a Kia online and ended up with a very small car that was hard to get our luggage in. Any other car was going to be exceptionally more expensive so we didn’t really have a choice.

Pros:

I was due to drop off my car at 5pm, I arrived at 4:55 and the Office was already closed. This meant I was unable to confirm an alternative payment method for the final balance as well as not being there to oversee an inspection.

Cons:

I can’t believe they had closed early. I also needed to get a cab to the ferry port which I no longer could as they couldn’t call for me! Thankfully the kindness of strangers prevailed, but not impressed.

Loved this store. The agent was a really nice young man and everything was great. I will never use enterprise again since I rented a car and the next morning got a call that they didn't really have a car! So Avis was Awesome! And the return process at seatac was also amazing and took all of 3 minutes.
