US Car hire prices vary from .com - why?

I am looking to book a car in Seattle next may and want to pay in advance. however when I look at the price on the US website the cost for an economy vehicle is about $270, on the UK site for a pickup at the same location at the same times £570? (appx $700). I can't see anything on the US site stating a foreign national can't book on there, I have th right credit card and IDP etc. 

Is there something I'm missing? Both are with Alamo as they have a good rating in Seattle.
