Cheap Car Rentals in Tacoma

Find cheap car rental deals in Tacoma, Washington

Tacoma, a city that’s often seen as a passing place near Seattle, is an engaging and interesting destination in its own right. As the home of glass artist Dale Chihuly, it’s got a rich artistic legacy that’s reflected in the Museum of Glass and the Bridge of Glass Walkway. Rent a car through Orbitz to drive from these eye-catching attractions to other points in Tacoma, such as the aquarium and zoo, located in Point Defiance. You’ll also be able to hit the road and head into the wilds of Olympic National Park, or to see the snow-capped peak of Mount Rainier.


Tacoma and beyond: Discover Washington’s wonders

Renting a car in Tacoma takes you right into the heart of the Pacific Northwest, near its breathtaking national parks and edgy, modern metropolises. We’ve picked three of the best locations to visit by car from Tacoma.

Olympia

To stand outside Washington’s capitol building, head to the small city of Olympia, the state’s unassuming capital city.

Seattle

Stylish Seattle has its fair share of things to see and do – the Space Needle, Chihuly Gardens, and Pike Place Market will all compete for your attention. Geeks and film buffs will enjoy the Museum of Pop Culture, while families flock to the Seattle Aquarium. But Seattle is also the kind of city where it’s exciting just to be there, sipping on coffee in trendy neighborhoods such as Fremont or Ballard.

Bainbridge Island

The peaceful Puget Sound Islands are a different world to the hustle and bustle of cities like Seattle and Tacoma.

Once you’re here, drive to the charming villages, wineries, and independent businesses that make this island escape so special.
