Pros:

The mini van was what I had reserved, ran well, was full of fuel.

Cons:

It could have been ready on time ( was 50 minutes late) could have been more thoroughly cleaned (candy wrapper on floor, road dust visible in interior). The Assistant manager said she had personally helped clean the vehicle as it was not ready on time. I’m sure she did. I’m also sure I was given a vehicle that had not been thoroughly readied for pick up, which is quite serious given we are in a Global health crises And that Enterprise promises rigorous cleaning of a car given their responsibility to do all possible to reduce contamination between renters.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing.

Cons:

We reserved a car but there were no cars. I expected to pay $78 but had to spend $210 to rake an uber to the airport rather than the rental car. The person at the desk said they were out of cars and asked corporate to stop allowing cars to be rented but there was no response.

Pros:

Nothing - because you show up, and no one is at the desk and then you are stuck with no car. This is the 2nd time Alamo does it. Learned my lesson - NEVER RENT WITH THEM!

Cons:

If someone was actually there to give me a car, that would be a plus - so I don’t have to be in a city with NO RENTAL CAR. Showing up for work is a plus in my book guys.

Budget called last minute to let us know that the vehicle we had reserved for the morning was unavailable. They were unwilling to find us another rental car as we were dependent on it to get to our flight (1.5 hours away) in the morning. Their customer service was terrible, basically telling us that it was our problem and not theirs. We expected more from a trusted company :(

Top tips for renting a car in Bellingham

  • Car rentals in Bellingham provide you with the flexibility to explore the city’s many interesting sights, including Whatcom Museum and the scenic Lake Padden. Head to some of the popular cities in the surrounding region, whether it be Ferndale or Burlington. Bellingham car rentals are also a great way to head to attractions that are off the beaten path, like the Fragrance Lake Trail, which is around a 20min drive from the city center.
  • If you’re considering booking car rentals in Bellingham, keep in mind that you can make your reservation for Bellingham International Airport. The airport’s car rental center is placed directly near the Arrivals Terminal and the baggage claim, meaning that you don’t have to worry about grabbing a taxi, bus, or shuttle to travel there. There are a few different car rental companies to choose from, including Avis, Budget, and Enterprise.
  • Bellingham is known for having many cyclists, and they always have the right of way, even when they are not in a crosswalk bike lane. Keep your eyes open for them, especially when driving in busy areas. The state of Washington is also known for having many HOV lanes on its freeways, which are specifically designed for cars with at least two passengers. They usually are less busy than normal lanes, so use these when available to save time.
  • Highways 5 and 542 become particularly busy during rush hour, as these are the two main roads that people use to travel to work in and out of the city. Avoid getting caught in congestion by not taking these highways during the hours of 8-9am and 5-6:30pm. Bellingham frequently has rain and snow, which can cause traffic and make the roads slippery. If you find yourself driving during this weather, try to drive more slowly than normal and make sure that your vehicle has the proper winter equipment.
  • Book your rental car in Bellingham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Bellingham are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average
