Pack your raincoat, rent a car, and start sightseeing in the beautiful metropolitan city of Seattle. With the help of an inexpensive car rental, Seattle becomes easy to see and explore. Rent a car from Budget at our downtown Seattle location on 4th Avenue, where you can be just minutes away from some of the city’s most amazing sites. Conveniently located mere blocks from I-5, our downtown location is close to amazing food, incredible accommodations, and only minutes from ferry terminals to Bremerton and Bainbridge.

For the best view of Seattle, day or night, grab a vehicle from our downtown Seattle financial district location and head to Kerry Park or Gas Works Park.

After exploring the city, Budget makes it easy to return your rental with our convenient location at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
