1.9 Horrible8 Sep. 2021
We rented a car, I called local office and confirmed rental.. went to office at the airport to pick it up. They do not rent to anyone local you must have a flight in or out of airport. I was going on vacation my address was local in fact when I got to the counter she is like we can't rent to you your local I can sceen shot where it said that. Kayak or thrifty should have made it clearer on the rental process she explained it happens all the time we were a full day behind on vacation while we scrambled to find a new rental

The gentleman up selling was way over the top. Told me if the car broke down for mechanical issues I would still have to pay while it was in the shop. Totally false info. Car was not in the slot I was told it would be in.

They didn’t have my car ready when I arrived, try to excuse it with little explanation, and I had to get an up charge in order to receive a car within a reasonable amount of time.

Smooth process, friendly staff.I wanted to extend my reservation by a day, but the rep said that it would cost more than my initial daily rate. I decided not to extend after all. Just really surprised as that-- if the car is available, then why not let the customer have it for the same rate they booked it at?

couldn't find a staff member when exiting with the car to give the inspection slip to. no staff member available when dropping it off.would have been nice to know there was a limitation where i could drive that i didn't know about when renting the car. i came very close to driving out of the approved area which would have voided my contract and thrifty would have charged me $.32 per mile.

Friendly and helpful representatives, higher than average costsAlamo representative Debbie at the Spokane airport was very friendly and helpful. She assisted me with changing my reserved vehicle type. The vehicle was wonderful, so comfortable and easy to drive.I changed my requested vehicle type at the counter, which cost an additional $134.00. This was about $50.00 higher than if I had made the reservation that day, and even higher than other rental companies at the airport. Because I would have had a $100.00 fee to cancel my original reservation, I choose just to pay for the higher than average upgrade fee. Taught me a lesson to only reserve no fee cancellation vehicles.

The reservation, pick up and drop off all went without a hitch. Easy and hassle free. The staff was ready for me and made everything easy. Debbie was great to work with!! I showed up earlier than my reservation and they got me in a car early and extended my rental by one day without any issues. Staff was great!! Overall experience was great!! Would defintely rent from Alamo again.I drove a 2017 Dodge Charger with 2000 miles. Overall the car was great, but the USB ports would work off and on. This was frustrating and was hard when I needed to charge my phone. Also the main screen froze once and I had to pull over and turn the car off and back on. When it froze I was unable to control the volume, A/C etc. This must be a glitch that Dodge needs to address.

Coutious and effecientQuick service. The cars were clean, right there and what was promised. Loved the Chevy Impala. Great car overall. Averaged 29mpg overall from a 3.6L V6 that had tons of poop. I might get one. So quiet and smooth too. Was worth the extra $30 for the week. So glad you had the car available.

I was on my car and on my way in 10 min. The rental was cheaper than any other place, I checked several other companies, and tried doing the bundles with airfare and hotel, direct was still cheaper.If you don't fill up before you bring it back, which I recommend, they charge 6.99 a gallon.

Our flight home was delayed & re-routed through another airport - and Hertz charged us $400 for dropping off the car at a different location. Huge ripoff and we will NEVER use them again. The guy working at the Spokane Hertz seemed downright happy to hit us with the insane fee. Criminal.

I was really frustrated that I tried to make my reservation in Spokane airport, but it went to Spokane Valley. Then the weren't any cars available at the airport. So, I had to take a cab to the other location. My reservation wasn't ready, so they upgraded, which was great. But I was unhappy they weren't able to allow me to drop off my rental at the airport, despite the confusion. It would've been an additional $250. Upon contacting Enterprise, to see if they could work with me on the drop off upcharge, no one contacted me.

Nice, new car. Quick service downtown.The Spokane airport location wouldn’t rent me a car and I had to Uber downtown to pick up. They gave me a car with Canadian plates and a metric speedometer, so it was difficult to judge speed. Rental was very expensive and they nickel and dime you for insurance coverage. Even the basic, minimal plan is a gouge.

Pick-up in Spokane couldn't have been better! Staff were courteous and accommodating. I was given an SUV, but my handicapped mother couldn't have gotten in and out, so I was given a sedan, instead, which was very easy for her to get in and out of. Loved, loved, loved the Spokane check out! And loved the car given as well! Great Falls check out was performed by a nice lady, and it was fast and easy. The reason for marking down was that two individuals there were maskless, despite federal mandates at airports. Not following the law makes me suspect of what else these people are not doing that needs to be or should be done.
1.9 Horrible16 Aug. 2021
Due to Covid, I wasn’t able to travel with my wife and kids on the trip. Budget/Priceline was very unhelpful and un-accommodating. They wouldn’t honor the reservation without me being present despite my wife having same unique last name and confirm email/#. We tried adding her to reservation thru Priceline help number after she sat in line initially and was denied. After standing in line again, she found their systems didn’t register the change. Ultimately made new reservation with Avis and wife stood in line again to finally get the car.

Pickup at Spokane Airport was not a pleasant experience. It took over an hour in line to get served. I asked if this was normal and the agent said every day was like this.

The wait at the Spokane airport was ridiculous, almost 45 minutes. I had completed EVERYTHING on line, but it seems no one else had. When it came my turn, the Avis employee spent about 10 minutes typing on the computer. For what? Who knows. As I said, I completed everything on line, including choice of insurance options. Clearly, Avis has a problem.

Would have been a great deal if I could have taken the car to my destination.Dollar and Thrifty have a limited radius they will allow you to drive.

The rental company and vehicles are conveniently located at the terminal.when they didn’t have the car available I’d reserved, they shouldn’t have charged me for the upgrade. Other rental car companies don’t. I would have paid for the upgrade, but I shouldn’t have had to pay double especially for a vehicle that needed tires and wipers that weren’t safe for the conditions

Top tips for hiring a car in Spokane

  • The charming city of Spokane is easy to navigate and has light traffic, which means a car is the quickest, most efficient and comfortable way to explore the area on your own schedule. A car will also allow you to discover other destinations outside the city, such as Spokane Valley, which is only 10 miles east of the city and is home to more than 70 lakes and rivers. If you're visiting in the winter, make the most of the ski season by heading to the city's five ski resorts, which are all located within driving reach.
  • All the major car hire agencies, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Spokane International Airport (GEG), which is approximately 5 miles west of Spokane's city center. The car hire desks are located in the Ground Transportation Center so, if you're arriving by air, just follow the ground transportation signs after landing. Most agencies are open from early in the morning (6 to 7 a.m.) until late in the evening (11 p.m. to 12 a.m.).
  • Even though the city experiences a great flow of tourists throughout the year, driving downtown is relatively easy compared to other big cities in the country. Traffic rules in the city are pretty straightforward, but remember that all exits are on the right-hand side of the road. Winter driving may be the trickiest part, so make sure you have good snow tires and that you keep plenty of distance between your vehicle and others'.
  • Traffic in Spokane generally flows nicely all throughout the day, but driving during rush hour can add extra time to your travels. Avoid driving into the city or to the airport between 6 and 9 a.m., or out of the city towards the residential areas between 4 and 7 p.m. Traffic congestion only gets worse when it snows in the winter, as well as during road construction season, with one of the busiest commutes being the stretch from downtown east on I-90 to the valley exits.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Spokane for $54 or less
  • Book your car hire in Spokane at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hires in Spokane are around 51% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • If you're visiting in the summer, a spacious car such as a sedan or a small SUV may be a good option. If you're visiting in the winter, you'll need at least a front-wheel drive car and good snow tires even when driving on plowed roads, but an all-wheel drive or a four-wheel drive will make your driving experience safer, especially in areas where you may encounter thick snow.

  • The basic speed limit in Spokane is usually 25 miles per hour on residential roads, and 30 miles per hour on arterials, unless the posted signs say otherwise. County roads have a speed limit of 50 miles per hour, while state highways have a maximum speed limit of 60 miles per hour.

  • The average petrol prices in Spokane are approximately $2.83 per gallon. Lower prices can range anywhere between $2.59 and $3.29 per gallon. If you're visiting in the summer months, there will likely be more tourists, and hence bigger lines at petrol stations, so try to fill up your tank either early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid the crowds.

  • Parking spaces near the city's main attractions are plentiful. Drivers must pay for parking between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday, but street parking is free on Sundays and public holidays. Different meters have different time limits, and prices range between $0.40 and $1.20 per hour, depending on the location.
