Pros:

Pick up was inconvenient as there had been a bomb scare the night before. This meant that I had to come back the next day to pick up the car, but they were unable to refund me a day of my rental due to a third party being involved in the booking.

Cons:

a newer car with more seating comfort options

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off fairly easy... except for the surprise bill at the end. Of course, customers are rushing to catch a plane, so there isn't time to debate with them on the almost $300 increase in cost.

Cons:

Double talk at pick-up, harassed about upgrades, long, painful check-in process, etc. - then charged for an upgrade even though I didn't ask for one. I had an online booking showing ~$600 rental cost. Fox doesn't show the airport fees, taxes, etc. The final bill at pick-up was almost $900. While the standard rental car companies appear to be slightly more expensive upfront, they are not dishonest, show transparency, and are speedy and efficient. I promise to never rent from Fox again. Period.

The downtown location was horrible. The guy working the counter was great. But they made me walk up the ramp to the 4th floor, walk through a bunch of cars that were parked in the driveway that were very close to each other. Then my car was so tight to the next car I don't know how I even squeezed my body into it. Hurt my back doing so. My paperwork said the car was full but it was 2/3 tank Then I had to drive the wrong way down the ramp to leave the garage. Drop off was very confusing once I got to where they were in the garage. They just had you leave the keys on dash and walk away.

Pros:

Pick up AWFUL! Drop off was easy.

Cons:

PICKUP: It took 2 1/2 hours to get my car due to the LONG line at the Budget rental at SEATAC. Budget was the ONLY car rental place to have a line. Too few people working the desk (it varied from 1 to at most 3 people). Plus, a long time per each customer (averaged 15 to 20 minutes each. I timed it)

Pros:

yes, but the car sent messages that that the engine needed service. We were in the middle of our trip from Seatle to Processor Washington. We were in the middle of public forests. We continued at slower speeds onward to Processor for my brother's funeral. It made a bad situation even worse. We feared being stranded and missing the funeral. We finally reached Processor. We contacted Avis/Budget at the Pasco airport. We drover out to Pasco and exchanged cars. We eventually returned their car to the Seattle airport' At this time I am not sure what will be the total charges for both cars. I did not need this additional grief due to Avis/Budget renting us a defective, not serviced, automobile

Pros:

Cons:

Their rental desk in Seattle was closing at 1 AM, but I was not made aware of this during my rental, so I almost missed the opportunity to pick up my key. Once I had my car, I was unable to leave the parking lot since the barricade/gate was across and the power was somehow turned off to that portion of the exit. I sat in my car for nearly an hour while the staff and security worked to find a key or way to manually remove the barricade or find another way out of the rental car area. Eventually power came on and they were able to release me and my rental car at about 2 AM.

Even though there is no monetary value to anyone of my notebook; it was important to me. Rental car company needs to have better mechanism

The screens inside the car were smudged and not wiped off well.

He was very pushy.

Lee was wonderful at the SeaTac pickup counter. I loved the car, how easy it was to pick up, and that I got the car I actually signed up to get in the app! That never happens elsewhere. I wish someone walked me through basic features of the car. It was tricky to start (just not what I was used to or expecting), so that would have been helpful

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Not much at all. When I checked in, the Jeep Grand Cherokee I reserved was not available, but a Subaru was what they had to offer. I told them I did not want the added insurance coverage and they told me total charge would be $111. I did not look at my receipt until later and saw that they tacked on $60 for insurance. When I received my final receipt emailed the next day after turning the car in, it was for $301.74, not the $121 I was quoted for on Kayak. I am out an additional $180 for a one-day car rental.

Cons:

The service was not good, really got the run around. My wife is in a wheelchair and they couldn't tell me on the phone if the shuttle to the airport was handicap accessible. Also, they didn't have the car I reserved and they blatantly overcharged me for a one-day rental.

I had no windshield washer fluid in the car, window had tire shine on it so no matter how much I cleaned it during my travel from Seattle to Spokane I literally couldn’t see and the pass was horrible with snow so that didn’t make my trip any easier I don’t usually comment or leave a negative review ever! Like ever but thought I should say something about it. Sorry if I offended anyone but I use cars pretty often

Pros:

Staff was friendly, and got a great rate by not renting from the airport. Drop off was easy.

Cons:

The pickup/drop off location left something to be desired. 6th floor of a dark, old, parking garage that wasn’t especially well-lit. The main entrance was closed due to COVID and we had to use the back door to the elevator lobby. I could see someone, such as a young female alone, feeling quite uneasy about the location.

Pros:

We were upgraded to a larger car at a decent price which we very much appreciated as we were traveling in a group. Staff at check in and check out were very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

We were given a car that made a terrible grinding noise when the brakes were applied. It was very worrisome given that we were driving through mountainous regions and the terrain was very steep. We tried getting ahold of Thrifty for 3 days to complain about the car, sometimes waiting on hold for an hour and a half at a time, before we were finally able to reach a representative who could help us. During those 3 days, we estimated that we spent collectively 7-8 hours on hold trying to reach someone who could help. It was a non-stop barrage of automated systems, transfers and holds. Very frustrating to deal with when you are on vacation. They ended up bringing us a new car which was much appreciated but we would have preferred not to waste so much time on our trip worrying about whether the brakes in our rental were going to give out.

Cons:

Classic “bait and switch” - booked the largest sized Land Rover- 7 Seater Discovery - well in advance. Put me in the dirtiest “beat up” Chevy Tahoe. Told me it was the same “class”. So much for ‘Covid Clean’ - it wouldn’t meet anyone’s standards of minimally clean. Don’t expect anything but LESS than you book!

Pros:

The car was nice and a good deal concerning the other prices by other rental companies. The associate the checked us in was very accommodating.

Cons:

When I originally booked through kayak I entered sea tac airport as my pick up and drop off location. I never confirmed and looked up the address of the Thrifty location because I assumed it would be at the airport that I entered. I got on the shuttle to the car rental terminal where I had to wait in line for an hour because there were so many guests arriving and only two associate working. When it was my turn the associate informed me I went to the wrong thrifty so I had to take the shuttle back to the airport then the train to downtown Seattle where the Thrifty I rented from actually was. I would recommend a much stronger and noticeable alert that the location of this thrifty is not at the airport. I found it says that is small writing randomly in the second email I got. It needs to be more noticeable while booking the car.

Signed up for a pick up truck to help load up things for my brothers wedding for the weekend. To my disappointment, they said they did not have any available. When we walked to the car, we saw so many pick up trucks that were in the parking garage. I then had another incident where I locked the keys in my car. I called the number to contact their roadside assistance. It rang for 2 minutes and then hung up. I’d drop doing business with these guys if I were you

First off, we made a scheduling error that could have been disastrous, they very pleasantly corrected the mistake and rented us a lovely hondi Elantra. That was perfect except the electronic key battery was dead and they were not very helpful in assisting us in getting that problem resolved. When we turned in the car a kind man did give us a $25.00 discount for the problem. All in all, quite a good experience.

Pros:

Staff was nice.

Cons:

The cars weren’t spotless, but that wasn’t a problem for me. We did get have to exchange cars due to a tire issue. We called ahead and discussed it with E-Z Rent-a-Car. They said they made a note on our profile and there would be no problem coming back and exchanging the car. When we got there, they didn’t seem to know what we were talking about and we spend a little longer than necessary due to some confusion about the exchange. Worked out in the end.

Top tips for hiring a car in Seattle

  • Ready to rent a car on your trip to Seattle? Save time and avoid public transport by renting a car that will give you the complete freedom to explore this exciting West Coast city. As it’s flanked by water and is home to mountains, the Cascade and Olympic, as well as lush forests and parkland, Seattle’s unique location and great roads offer its visitors outstanding scenic views as soon as you jump in your car.
  • A good place to pick up your hire car is at the Seattle–Tacoma International Airport. If you’re flying into Seattle, the city center is only a 13-mile drive away. Once you land, finding the car hire office is a breeze. You can use the 24-hour shuttle buses or head to the passenger pick-up areas in the main terminal located outside baggage claim at the north or south ends.
  • As a new driver in the city, you need to be aware of Seattle’s often busy and one-way streets. If you’re driving on residential streets, keep your eyes on the road as they often two lanes often merge into one. It’s also good to keep in mind that pedestrians will expect you to stop for them at crosswalks. Fortunately, local drivers tend to be considerate; but, as this is a busy city, you may have to navigate a few tricky situations including narrow streets, hills, and rainy weather.
  • If you’re not in a rush to discover Seattle, you won’t be affected by the slow traffic that can build on some of the busier streets, particularly in the metropolitan areas. The best time to avoid driving around Seattle is later in the week, especially on Fridays. Rush hour can also hit on busier weekend afternoons. Thankfully, Seattle has a few traffic cameras dotted around its roads, helping you keep an eye on the freeway and other congested intersections.
  • Book your car hire in Seattle at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Seattle are around 41% cheaper than other car types, on average
