Any recent car renters @ Seatac? Dollar vs. Alamo

Hello Seattle! I'll be arriving on Thursday, but still shopping around for my rental car. I already have a ressie with Alamo--a pickup for $111. Today I found Dollar has a mystery car for $112. Any advantages/disadvantages to a particular company? I've rented before, just not in Seattle. TIA for any advice....see ya soon!

I went with Alamo, largely due to price.

I actually arrived in Seattle on May 17th, the day the new rental car center opened. You go past all the baggage claim and wait for the bus outside. The bus takes about three minutes to get to the center. You enter the building, and all the rental companies are represented. I used the kiosk at Alamo, so I got my receipt and proceeded outside and downstairs to pick up my pickup. I was met easily by the Alamo representative to escorted me to my car and I was off on my trip!

Upon return, I just did the same thing backwards. The bus was waiting outside and took us to the terminal. Easy peasy.

but gas is super expensive, even more than here in NY!)

We ended up going with Avis. Found a coupon code and got a great price. Thanks for the information.
