Avis Car Rental at Seattle Tacoma International
Avis Seattle Tacoma International Airport
Seattle Tacoma International Airport serves the cities of Seattle and Tacoma, and is a large airport handling approximately 32 million passengers per annum. Due to its large number of passengers, the airport is regarded as the sixteenth busiest in the United States of America. It is important for international traffic as well, and is a hub for Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. The airport is recognised by its IATA code of SEA. Avis Seattle Tacoma International Airport is one of the car hire companies available for arriving passengers, and are found at the new Rental Car Centre. Avis is well known around the world for providing quality car hire services, vehicles of a high standard and excellent car rental rates.
This American airport is found in the area of SeaTac, and in the state of Washington, which is to the west of Montana and Idaho, and to the south of Vancouver in Canada. The airport is found between the cities of Seattle and Tacoma, and particularly nearby to McMicken Heights, Burien and Normandy Park. It consists of a Central Terminal that has four concourses, as well as the North and South satellite terminals, of which the South Terminal handles all international flights. Arriving passengers will find the terminals to be extremely well equipped for their needs, and have options for various forms of ground transport. Passengers who have chosen to rent a car will now take a shuttle to the car hire companies, as they have recently moved to 3150 South 160th Street, where this street intersects with International Boulevard South, and at the north-eastern side of the airport grounds. Avis is present at the new facility, along with Hertz, Budget, National, Thrifty and Enterprise.
The shuttle buses that provide transport to the Seattle Tacoma International Airport car hire companies are free of charge, and available from the north and south ends of the main terminal building. They do not need to be reserved in advance, as they operate twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. However, vehicles from Avis are recommended to be reserved, especially if a special or luxury vehicle is required. The cars with lower rental rates are often in high demand as well. The easiest way to secure your ideal car from Avis is online, by completing a simple online reservation form. Online, customers will still be able to request additional items of equipment for their vehicle, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems, and will be able to arrange Avis one way hires, should they wish not to return to Seattle Tacoma Airport. One way hire services, however, could be more expensive than an ordinary rental. Be careful as well if you plan to drive into Canada, as sometimes rented cars are not permitted to cross the border.
Avis customers will need to be 21 years of age or older to rent a car. They will also require a valid driving license and a major credit card, showing clear driving and credit histories. Drivers younger than 25 will pay a little extra for young driver fees. This will amount to $27.00 per day of car hire, and per young driver listed on the rental contract. The amount will also be automatically applied to the rental contract’s fees. Young drivers are only permitted to hire certain vehicles, such as those from the Economy, Compact, Intermediate and Fullsize categories, and not any vehicle from the categories of Luxury, Minivan, 12-Passenger Van, Specialty, Fullsize SUV and Premium SUV. Drivers over the age of 25 are usually permitted to hire vehicles from all categories. The drivers license of the customer will need to have been issued in the United States of America, otherwise, the local license will need to be presented along with either a passport or a Canadian-endorsed license. All documents shown should be in the name of the driver. In terms of credit cards, the following are accepted by Avis: Avis Charge Cards, American Express, AT & T Capital, Diner’s Club Int’l, Discover, GE Capital, JCB, Mastercard, PHH, Sears and Visa. The Seattle Tacoma International Airport car rental companies also offer services such as Roadside SafetyNet, and RSN, which covers the costs of key replacements, lockouts, tire change service fees, jump starts and emergency fuel deliveries (up to three gallons).
From Avis, hand controls are possible to hire by disabled persons who need a vehicle from Seattle Tacoma International Airport. Hand control equipment is free of charge from Avis, and is a device that operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. It does not operate any other functions, such as the car lights, windshield wipers or blinkers. Always reserve hand controls at least forty-eight hours prior to your arrival at the airport.
Vehicles from Avis are similar to the Hyundai Accent and Ford Focus in the Subcompact and Compact categories, and to the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Impala in the categories of Intermediate, Standard and Fullsize. These cars are all popular rental choices, with room for up to five passengers and a couple of luggage items. Luxury and Premium cars can be hired as well, such as the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Towncar, and SUVs are found in several categories, for example, the Ford Escape, Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Edge and Chevrolet Suburban. The larger SUVs can seat up to seven passengers, and are ideal for travelling of all distances. Minivans seat seven as well, and include the Dodge Grand Caravan, while Passenger Vans such as the Ford E350 can seat up to twelve passengers.
Avis also has a large range of Specialty cars available for their customers, and these cars are a little more exciting than the ordinary rental. They include the BMW 528, BMW X3, Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, Ford Mustang Coupe, Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe, Volvo V70 Convertible, Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, Jeep Wrangler and the Lincoln Navigator.
