Picture this: You're in the middle of Seattle. It's a mild summer day. As you scan the horizon, you can see the Cascade and Olympic mountains. They seem almost close enough to walk to: Alas, though, you cannot get to them without a rental car. Picture this: You're in the middle of Seattle. It's a chilly, rainy winter day. No cabs are in sight. The bus schedules and routes are indecipherable. A rental car will not only get you from one appointment to the next, but will get you out of town where all that rain means snow at the higher elevations. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location
If you're arriving in Seattle by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Dollar, Hertz, National, and Thrifty all have locations in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Payless' pick-up counter is only a shuttle ride away. Expedia can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)


Picking the rental car that's right for you
Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, minivans, and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a ski rack, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Seattle, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing
Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
