KAYAK

Pros:

Fairly good website

Cons:

The website rental confirmation did not correspond to actual car availability. The rental confirmation did not actually exist. Had I not called the local rental office, I would not have found out there there were no cars to rent - and I would have been totally out of luck and stranded.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Waited almost an hour to pick up my car. The employee was very slow and not customer service friendly. Did not give the car I ordered. Changed the insurance I had already bought for $18 on kayak. And made me get whatever he was selling. Double the price. He acted like he gets paid on commission. Reserved the car for about $50 on Kayak and he tried to charge me over $200. Still paid more than what my reservation said. will never use them again. Drop was at 8am and no one was there. Had to wait for the same employee to open the store. Late.

KAYAK

Pros:

Jadida was very friendly and helpful when I picked up and dropped off the car. When I returned the car early, Avis tried to charge way more than if I'd had it the whole time, but again Jadida was really helpful and got that straightened out too.

Cons:

My rental confirmation said it started at noon on Labor Day. So, I arrived at 12:15 and the office apparently closed at noon that day. The guy says, "we're closed." I told him my email said to get the car at 12. "Right, it's 12:15" he says, and started walking out. Fortunately, Jadida stayed and helped me. The car I got hadn't been cleaned. The inside was ok, but the outside was really dirty with dead bugs all over the grill.

Overall the rental was nice, the only minor issue I had and it was probably due to high volvume, but the inside was not necessarily the cleanest but for what we needed it suffices. I usually get top notch from enterprise so I won’t fault them for this one transgression. I’d use them again

Top tips for hiring a car in Tacoma

  • Explore every nook and cranny of Tacoma during your visit and rent a car when you get there. The city has plenty to offer from a casino to a car museum, plus the bay, and the easiest way to tick off everything on your wish list is by having the flexibility of your own four wheels. Travelers who would like to visit Seattle can also reach the city in about half an hour from Tacoma.
  • Located in Seattle, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is the nearest airport at only half an hour away from Tacoma. The airport operates shuttle buses to a nearby hire car center where agencies like Avis, Budget, and Enterprise offer vehicles for their customers. Pick-up points are either on the north or south end of the main terminal, right after baggage claim.
  • Driving in Tacoma can come with some challenges, as the city has steep hills, narrow roads, and icy roads can also occur in winter. When navigating down a steep hill, it is important to shift into a low gear and consider operating the car manually. If visiting Tacoma in the winter, adapt your speed and maybe even opt for snow chains, depending on how severe the weather conditions are.
  • Especially on the roads to and from Seattle, such as the I-5, Tacoma can face severely increased traffic during the usual weekday rush hours of 6-9 am and 5-8 pm. Traffic during rush hour tends to get worse the closer the week later in the week it is, with Friday often being the worst. For a hassle-free driving experience, choose to leave for trips outside of peak driving times.
  • Book your car hire in Tacoma at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size car hires in Tacoma are around -55% cheaper than other car types, on average
