Seattle Car Rental: What You Need to Know

Why not alleviate the headaches that typically come with touring a major city by reserving a cheap rental car in Seattle? You’ll be able to check off everything on your itinerary without the hassle of public transportation or the expense of cab rides.

How can I get a cheap car rental in Seattle?

If you want to guarantee you’re getting the best rate on a rental car:

  • - Run a search and compare on different deals and rates;
  • - Pick up and drop off your vehicle at a non-airport location, if you can;
  • - Before reserving, estimate the amount of fuel and mileage you will need; 
  • - Reserve as far in advance as possible.

Which car rental companies are situated in Seattle?

You can find some excellent deals from companies such as Sixt, Hertz, and Avis, as well as from the smaller regional ones in the city.

What kind of car should I get in Seattle, Washington?

This does depend on what kind of vacation you’re planning. If you’re bringing the kids or even the whole family, a minivan or an SUV with plenty of leg room and space for luggage is likely to be the most comfortable option. If you’re traveling solo or in a couple, you could go for a luxury convertible or get a cheap deal on an economy vehicle.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Seattle?

The minimum age for renting a car is 21 years, with a possible surcharge if you’re under 25.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Seattle?

Yes, you will need to be covered by insurance. Your car or credit card insurance might cover you, so check your policy. Failing this, US citizens can get rental insurance from CarRentals.com or the rental company.

What fuel policy is available in Seattle?

Full-to-full fuel policies are very common, meaning that you will pick up and return the vehicle with a full tank of fuel.

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in Seattle, Washington?

Yes. Unlimited mileage means you don’t have to be cautious with your miles, so you can make any last-minute changes to your itinerary and keep on driving! Choosing limited mileage can lead to additional costs if you clock up too many miles, so be careful to plan your journeys if you opt for this.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way in Seattle?

You can usually choose the pick-up and drop-off location that is most convenient for you, sometimes for an extra fee. The car rental company will be able to tell you the specific costs and restrictions.

3 sights that you cannot miss in Seattle

Drive yourself to see the Fremont Troll, a sculpture that, not surprisingly, was built under a bridge. The troll is a great introduction to the wonderful weirdness of the Pacific Northwest; once you’ve seen it, hop inside your rental car to do a little more exploration.

Three miles south of the Troll is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks, the Space Needle. Once there, you can peer out over the city from its 605-foot-tall observation deck.

Afterward, check out the open-air Pike Place Market, one of the oldest continuously-operated farmer’s markets in the U.S., and sample some of the area’s local cuisine.

3 great road trips from Seattle, Washington

If you want to head out of the city for some peace and quiet, drive your rental about 100 miles outside of Seattle to Friday Harbor, a small-town seaside location where you can walk along the beach and watch the world go by.

For another beachside escape, drive just over 2 hours to Westport, where you can tour a cranberry farm, go fishing, or take the kids crabbing. If you have time to drive a little further afield, Lake Chelan is 4 hours from Seattle by car, and is full of opportunities for an action-packed weekend of kayaking, fishing, hiking, and wine tasting.

What is parking like in Seattle?

There are parking lots in Seattle where you can pay a short-term rate to leave your vehicle, which is the most convenient option for most drivers. The lots aren’t too expensive, but if you decide to park your car on the street, be sure to check any signs for restrictions, to avoid any surprising fines!

Rent a car in the Emerald City right here on CarRentals.com today. We have the cheapest discounts and deals available from a variety of rental agencies serving the Seattle area. Start browsing today and work on perfecting your coffee order—the Washington baristas will appreciate it.
