What kind of rental car should I get for Seattle?
Nothing says living it up like a road trip, especially when you’re going someplace as awesome as Seattle. With bucket-list sights like Pike Place Market and Space Needle, there’s so much to see and so little time. That’s where a rental car can help. You’ll be able to visit loads more places — but pick something small for easy city driving, like a mini. If you don’t want to cruise around those challenging streets, King County is full of natural wonders. Ditch the zippy runabout for something larger, like an SUV, and explore the stunning rocky coastlines.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Seattle?
There’s plenty of choice when it comes to rental cars in Seattle. From SUVs with trunk space galore to easy-to-park compacts, you’ll find it all here. Selecting your perfect match depends on your budget and what activities you plan on doing. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas others require no more than an engine and four wheels. The choice is yours.
What side of the road do they drive on in Seattle?
In Seattle, you’ll have to stick to the right side. When road-tripping someplace new, it’s wise to opt for a car with automatic transmission. That way, you can focus on the road ahead and not worry about gear changes.
Is it difficult to park in Seattle?

It’s prohibited to use your cell phone while driving around Seattle, and you could even be fined for just handling a phone if you’re in control of a vehicle. That being said, using hands-free or Bluetooth functions is allowed, as long as your eyes remain on the road.
What are the rules around drink driving in Seattle?
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit when operating a vehicle in Seattle is 0.08%. If a big night is on the cards, leave your wheels behind and organize some other way of getting home instead.
Is turning on a red light allowed in Seattle?
Traffic laws in Seattle permit drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic closest to them, without waiting for a green signal. Before doing so, the vehicle must stop completely and the driver must be certain that the way is clear before proceeding.
