  • Seattle–Tacoma International Airport (SEA) receives several domestic and international flights to the Seattle metropolitan area. Once you arrive at SEA, you will find two shuttle pick-up areas situated outside on the lower drive on the baggage claim level at the airport. One at the northern end of the terminal (near Alaska Airlines) and another at the southern end (near the international airlines). Shuttles will then transport you and your luggage to the Rental Car Center within a five-minute drive. Some of the rental providers you'll choose from at the facility include Dollar, Fox, Alamo, SIXT, E-Z Rent-A-Car, Thrifty, Budget, Hertz, Payless, Avis, CarWiz, and Silvercar.
  • In Seattle, weekdays feature rush hour periods between 7:00 am and 9:00 am and 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. During these times, the roads and highways in and around the city are congested with commuters traveling to and from work. The morning rush hour usually gets busiest with commuters entering the downtown area, while the afternoon rush hour is most active with commuters departing the city. As a significant urban center in the region, rush hour traffic in Seattle can be quite difficult, particularly on main highways such as I-5, I-90, and SR 520. To avoid the resulting traffic congestion, you should opt for minor routes during your trips in the region.
  • Obtaining a rental car in Seattle will enable you to explore a variety of attractions. You can travel to the iconic Space Needle, a symbol of the city's innovation and modernity, with a rental car. On its observation deck, you can admire the breathtaking panoramic views of Seattle's skyline. With a rental car, you can head to the Pike Place Market, one of the United States' oldest continuously operating public farmer's markets. Additionally, you can drive to the Museum of Popular Culture (MoPOP) to discover Seattle's cultural side in music, science fiction, video games, and contemporary modern culture. With your rental car, you can easily access Washington Park Arboretum, providing opportunities for scenic views and strolls.
