Top tips for renting a car at Yakima Air Terminal airport

  • Yakima Air Terminal Airport (YKM) is a hub for Alaska Airlines. It offers daily flights to and from Seattle/Tacoma. The airport is less than a 10-minute drive from the center of Yakima city. You can catch a taxi to your destination from the airport. However, a rental car will make it easier to enjoy your vacation in Yakima. Car rentals at Yakima Air Terminal Airport include major rental car companies such as Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, and Avis.
  • At Yakima Air Terminal Airport, you can choose to rent a small, medium, or large car. At Enterprise, you can rent an SUV or a pickup truck if this is what you'd prefer. The hours of the rental car agencies vary. On weekdays, they tend to open at around 8 am and close at about 4 pm. On the weekends, the hours are shorter with them opening at about 11 am and closing at around 2 pm.
  • The car rental kiosks are in the lobby of the baggage claim area. All of the rental cars are in a parking lot close to the terminal, so you won't have to walk far to get your car. Along with car rentals, the airport has a restaurant, retail shops, and an Aviation Museum that you can tour while there. The early morning is when this airport sees the most traffic. If you want to avoid crowds and waiting times, you should book your flight and schedule your car pickup later in the day.
  • If your spouse or domestic partner is traveling with you, they can be added to your rental car contract for no additional fee when renting a car at this location. Use KAYAK to compare prices of car rentals and add-ons like GPS, roadside assistance, infant/toddler/child booster seats, or refueling services. You can play around with travel dates and car types to find the best deal for your budget.
  • Book your rental car at Yakima Air Terminal airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Yakima Air Terminal airport

  • What are the requirements for booking a car rental at Yakima Air Terminal Airport?

    Car renters must have a valid US driver's license with a photograph. This cannot be a photo or digital copy but must be official. If you're not a resident of the United States, having an international driver's permit is the best choice for foreign drivers. As a foreign driver, you will also need to show your license from your home country along with your passport. To enjoy a Yakima Air Terminal Airport car rental, you have to be at least 20 years old although some agencies will require that you be a minimum of 21 years old with some driving experience. If you're a younger driver, that is 20-24, you might incur a surcharge. You could also be limited to renting only a compact or standard-size car.

  • Can I return my car rental at Yakima Air Terminal Airport after hours?

    Some of the car rental agencies at Yakima Air Terminal Airport, such as Budget, Hertz, and Enterprise, will let you return your car after hours. However, you have to arrange this service with your car rental agency. You should note that there is often an additional fee for after-hour return services. Should you choose to return your car when the agency is closed, there is a drop box inside the terminal close to the car rental kiosks.

  • What payments are accepted for car rentals at Yakima Air Terminal Airport?

    To pay for your car rental at Yakima Air Terminal Airport, you'll need a major credit card such as American Express, Visa, Discover, Diners Club, or Mastercard. Some companies will accept a debit card or cash for your car rental payment. Still, the rental car agency will likely ask you for a credit card that they can use for a security deposit hold.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Yakima Air Terminal airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Yakima Air Terminal airport to off-airport locations include Avis, Budget, and Hertz.

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly, on site help. My rental was almost $80 cheaper than the quote from the Hertz counter, which I very much appreciated.

Cons:

As the owner does not have on site (airport) cleaning facilities, that has to be done off site. Yakima is a small airport and flights in and out are occasional, so he uses the down time between flights to go to an off site washing station. Hence, there isn't anyone always at the desk. I happened to come at a time that an out to service sign was up. Otherwise, it was a great experience

Pros:

Easy pickup and drop off; car was conveniently close to the baggage carousel. Customer service was spot on for the pick up and the whole transaction took less than five minutes.

Cons:

Such a minor issue, but there was some trash left in the back of the car (just some paper); barely a negative because the car was very clean otherwise.

I looked around the web and found the best deal at Budget. I rented through Kayak as it was easy, but I found all the major sites real close on price.

Cons:

No one showed up to open the counter. Waited about 45 minutes after I was supposed to pick up the vehicle. Had to scramble and get a rental through Enterprise. Definitely not satisfied.

Pros:

Fairly quick pickup, very quick/easy drop-off. Car was clean.

Cons:

I rented an economy car, and when I arrived was told I could only rent a full-sized Jeep. Also, the price for a one-way rental was fairly absurd.

Cons:

I had scheduled to pick the car up at 1200. They closed at 12 so when I got there at 12 they had already closed and I didn't get the rental. Why offer a time to pick up a car at the time they close. I called customer service and they were unremorseful and couldn't cancel since it was with a third party. I couldn't get a refund because your site didn't allow it. So I'm out the cost of a car rental that I wasn't even able to pick up. This experience was extremely infuriating.

Dec 2016

Cons:

I was charged $33 for being EXACTLY ONE HOUR LATE with my return. I picked up the car at 4:33PM on Saturday and returned it at 5:33PM on Sunday. Had the guy put it through the computer a few seconds earlier, I don't suppose I would've been charged. I can't believe that they have no way of waiving the charge. I do a lot of business with Avis, and this leaves a sour taste in my mouth!

The airport location was convenient; The car ('18 Camry) one of the best I've driven -- I would buy it for myself. The mileage fantastic - 35.6 mpg. Return service was also excellent.

Nothing. No complaint whatsoever.

the price I was quoted was ok but I returned car 27 hours early & still paid the same price also they added energy surcharge, concession fee recovery, vehicle license cost recovery & additional charges of $27.00 we added a second driver but there is nothing to say that was done. I have called twice to Hertz but so far no answer from them that makes any sence. why is it that your quote & their bill is not the same as I or anyone else would expect the vehicle was fine that they gave us bill is the problem!!!

Pros:

Thank you to the staff at Yakima airport who had everything ready for us when we arrived to pick up our car!!

Cons:

Keep in mind that if chains are required for the Snoqualmie Pass, no chains are available for rentals. So, you’ll have to wait out the weather! Would be helpful - for snowy locations - that something indicate that. But we got through just fine. Chain requirement was dropped by the time we picked up our car.

Pros:

I was able to upgrade to an all wheel drive (bad weather) car at the check in desk. The customer service was very helpful.

Cons:

When I called the toll free number to see about upgrading to an all wheel drive car, the customer service rep on the phone didn't speak very good English. He told me I couldn't upgrade and I had no other options. My husband called back, and the female customer service rep ALSO didnt speak English very well. It was difficult trying to get our questions answered.

Pros:

Cons:

I had to go there 3 times in a 3 hour period because no one was at the desk. They were very unhelpful and i ended up canceling my reservation and going with another company at the airport. There were 2 others there at the same time, everyone was very disgruntled. One person had to wait 4 hours because they didn't have a car and she had a reservation. I would never do business with this company and I will let everyone I know about my experience.

Cons:

I have a VISA debit card and I do not have credit cards but to pay for things in real time. My HERTZ rep said that they only take credit cards but he tried my debit after much prompting and it went through. Many people have gone the "Dave Ramsey" way of life since 2008 and so should businesses...
