Cars at SEA

Anyone have Emerald Aisle service in Seattle lately? How was the service? What types of cars were available?

We are arriving around lunchtime on a Friday...and wondering what will be waiting for us.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I rented there for the SEA Do in September. Location is a bit strange walked through the bridge and up and down a bunch of escalators and elevators. Car selection was actually very good with Camrys and Altimas and a few other cars that you don't normally associate with Emerald Aisle locations.

Personally, I've found the selection at Sea-Tac to be very spotty -- mostly Mitsubishi (Lancers & Galants) and Pontiac Grand Ams. It can help to ask the attendants if anything nicer is about to be brought out.

We got into SeaTac on Friday around 7pm and there were only a few Malibus (one of them needed a wash!) and a bunch of SUV's. Thankfully we had Executive Elite and took the SUV without any extra charge.

Just be sure you have the Emerald agent print you a copy of your rental agreement...you'll need it for the garage security guard at SEA. Otherwise they'll either send you back upstairs or have to make a lengthy phone call with the National desk.

SEA is the only place I've seen where you need a printed contract to exit the garage; elsewhere, I've just had to show my driver's license and hangtag to the exit booth agent (half the time, they don't even ask for my credit card) and am on my way.

Any update in the past year? I'm flying in next Wednesday. Also, how are the cars in Executive Selection at SEA?

I arrived after 10 PM last week -- 5 vehicles total:
3 mammoth SUVs (I won't take these under any circumstance)
1 Chevy Aveo
1 Saturn ION.

I took the Saturn because it had an XM antenna (but the radio wasn't active).

The next day, National e-mailed me --- they wanted the license # and VIN (that's never happened to me before!).

BTW -- Emerald Aisle & Exec are on the 2nd floor of the garage, away from the other rental areas.
