Renting an RV to travel Alaska is often a great choice for those looking for added flexibility in their Alaska vacation, and those who want to "rough it" in style with most of the comforts of home. Whatever the case, more and more people are turning to Alaska rv rental companies to plan their perfect Alaska vacation. While many people drive their own rv to Alaska, a substantial number choose to rent their rv in Anchorage. There are over a dozen firms offering Alaska rv rentals in Anchorage, from 22 foot class C motorhomes to 30 foot class A motorhomes.
The most popular rental model is the class C motorhome which are generally available in 22 foot to 31 foot lengths. Most rental rvs are fully self contained, meaning that in addition to beds and seating, expect a bathroom with toilet and shower, stove, refrigerator, kitchen sink, hot water heater and furnace. If you are renting from a top firm, expect your motorhome to be less than 3 years old. A 22-24 foot rv will work well for a couple, although the 25-27 foot models usually offer a full bed in the back. A 25-27 foot rv will also work well for a family with 1 or 2 children, but look towards a larger 28-31 foot motorhome for parties with 4 to 6 adults or larger families.
Start early if you plan to rent an rv in Alaska. Advance reservations are required and many companies are sold out by spring time. A deposit is generally required to rent an rv, and strict cancellation penalties are common. Some firms charge extra for mileage, kitchen set ups, bedding, insurance, dumping or cleaning, so make sure you ask about extra fees so you know the total cost of your rental. Expect to pay $165 to $225 per day for a nice, well equipped rv, depending on the rental company and motorhome size. Discounts are often available for May or September rentals. No special license is required to operate an rv in Alaska, and most rental companies give an orientation prior to your departure.
There are a number of RV rental firms in Anchorage, and as with any major purchase it is important to pick a reputable one. Click here to receive a no obligation quote directly from one of Alaska's top motorhome rental agencies.
If you choose to rent an rv in Alaska you will likely be visiting a number of Alaska cities. Our suggestion is to save two or three days for Denali National Park as well as Kenai Fjords National Park and Seward. Be sure to check out our Denali Park tours, Seward tours or Alaska Tours pages.
