pick up car rental at airport location?

By sammopup,

Recommended Posts

I have never rented a car through hotwire, and am looking to do so ... but I didn't know if the pick-up location was guaranteed to be at the airport? I am flying into the Seattle SEA TAC airport (SEA code) - and when I input that into hotwire, it asks me to "refine my location". It gives me several options in terms of selecting the distance and showing the lowest price.

I'm not sure I understand what that means. I would just like to ensure that the rental car is to be picked up and returned to the Airport location (doesn't matter too much if I have to take a shuttle to the off-site car location) ... I just want to make sure I am not picking up the car at a random downtown or other location that is not in the airport.

Any suggestions or guidance is greatly appreciated

Please follow-up your threads after posting, it doesn't help anyone if you make a post such as your Hotwire Houston thread and then just 'walk away' :)

In regards to your question above...

click this HOTWIRE link

click CARS at the top of the page

where you enter the destination, make sure "Airport or City" is selected

type "SEA" and the first offer in the 'suggetions' will be: 'Seattle, WA - (SEA)' select that one

This will give you an airport location. To confirm, if you look at the car offerings, for each there is a listing for "Location" and it states "Counter and car are in the airport".
