Car rental insurance in Bellingham

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bellingham car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Bellingham.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Bellingham car rental.

8.0 ExcellentApr 1 2021
Pros: Helpful staff and easy dropoffCons: Redundant insurance policies between kayak and the actual rental agency, don't offer the kayak one.
2.0 MediocreNov 24 2020
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.
8.0 ExcellentOct 5 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly. Pick-up and drop-off were very easy.
3.6 MediocreAug 31 2020
Pros: Staff was great, easy pickup and drop offCons: I ordered a Cadillac or similar, they didn't have any, so I got a smokey Mazda SUV that I could barely fit into instead, without a price drop or any other options given.
6.8 GoodAug 19 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly but didn't know what options the car had.Cons: Staff should have available to them all of the options available on any car. Also the interior front window was not clean

9.6 ExcellentDec 29 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Explained options well but not pushy. Overall very nice.Cons: Van we rented could have been closer to airport. Not a big deal though.

4.8 OkayAug 10 2020
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.
8.0 ExcellentOct 13 2019
Pros: yesCons: survey button for excellent not working so I checked good instead
10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2019
Pros: Ryan couldn't have been more kind and understanding about a last-minute change due to a family emergency and got us into a larger car at minimum cost.Cons: Really no complaints!
10.0 ExcellentJul 26 2019
Pros: YESCons: NO COMPLAINTS - construction site made it a bit awkward to enter - but that will pass.
10.0 ExcellentNov 12 2018
Excellent service?Pros: The service was excellent. Would return the next time I'm in Bellingham.
10.0 ExcellentNov 5 2018
Great customer service.Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful in getting us the car we needed.
8.8 ExcellentOct 14 2018
Pros: Nice person at the desk.Cons: Drop off in Bellingham WA airport was awkward. Signage is fine until the last 1000 yds., then it becomes virtually invisible in the dark. I circled the airport 3 times. The nice woman at the Enterprise desk (the only person in the entire rental area at 7:15 am BTW) suggested that this invisibility is a common problem; (Fix it, Enterprise, make a new sign) Returning a car is a bit "loose" - park it wherever - but that was fine with me..unless there's a problem later that I don't know about
8.0 ExcellentOct 6 2018
Bellingham employees are superiorPros: The type of car reserved was available, the car was clean and the employees were pleasant and helpful.Cons: There were minor electrical problems with the car. The seatbelt alert was not working, I inadvertently drove off with my elderly aunt no seatbelts in.
2.0 MediocreJul 19 2018
No optionsPros: NothingCons: No great options for luxury cars.
6.0 GoodNov 29 2017
Inform your employeesCons: The employees at the Bellingham airport were not helpful. I called on two different days and was told both times that they could not find my reservation. The first time they couldn’t find it using my last name so they used my confirmation number then the second time they couldn’t find it using my confirmation number so they used my last name. My main frustration came with their lack of knowledge on where to drop the car off. We took the car 20 miles south to Anacortes to drop the car off at the ferry landing but didn’t know exactly where to leave it parked. The anacortes enterprise office was already closed so we called the Bellingham office and the employee was of no help. He said he’d never heard of dropping the car off at the ferry landing but I had already been told by the anacortes office that we were able to drop it off there for pick up the next day. After getting nowhere on the phone with the employee from Bellingham we ended up finding the right parking lot on our own, 5 minutes before our ferry came. My point of all this is to inform your enterprise employees of your drop off locations. I know this drop off is a different location than the Bellingham employees might be used to but it’s only 20 miles from them so I feel like they should know. The ferry drop off is very convenient and I can see more people utilizing it as time goes on and they should get specific instructions on where exactly to drop the car off to save them stress later.

Nice car to drive around the Northwestern area ofPros: The care was in very good condition and fun to drive.Cons: The check-out process was a bit slow. I am beginning to realize this is standard for the entire car rental industry. It would be nice to get some more help behind the check-out counters.

10.0 ExcellentApr 28 2021
Pros: The check out staff was very friendly. We did not see anyone when we dropped off the car.Cons: We probably paid too much for paying for a half tank of gas before taking car. I’m sure we didn’t use that much.
10.0 ExcellentAug 28 2018

2.0 MediocreJan 8 2018
Cons: I paid for a rental car on line with my debit card. I arrived to pickup the car only to find out that I couldn't because you don't accept debit cards. I want my money returned to my debit account. You accept credit cards only, so why accept payment via debit card?
8.4 ExcellentJan 1 2018
Car was smallPros: Very convenient to pick up and drop off the car.Cons: I ordered a compact, but the car seemed more like an economy
2.0 MediocreDec 28 2017
No cars availablePros: 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.
8.0 ExcellentOct 27 2017
Good rate, good servicePros: Car available immediately, reasonably fast service. All good.Cons: Small car not available so given a larger vehicle but it was a gas guzzler. Staff tried to charge for the upgrade but when we declined they gave it to us becaus3 it was the only car available. Not cool.
10.0 ExcellentJul 21 2017
