Alaska's main transportation corridor runs north from the port town of Seward in Southcentral Alaska through Anchorage, Denali National Park, and into Fairbanks in the state's Interior. The majority of summer visitors rely on train and bus transportation to get from destination to destination. On the other hand, many of our guests enjoy the flexibility that comes with a rental car, particularly when they are heading to off the beaten path destinations like Homer or Valdez. Rental cars are relativity expensive in Alaska during the summer, but they can still often result in a cost savings, particularly for parties of four or more travelers.

Most travelers pick up their rental cars in Anchorage at or near the airport. Anchorage is Alaska's main airline hub and has the widest selection of rental cars. Our standard rental car options in Anchorage consist of traditional compact, mid-size, full-size, mini-vans, and five-passenger SUVs typical of most national brands. We work with a locally owned franchise that has both an airport counter and a convenient off-airport location. If you choose the latter, you can typically enjoy big savings on taxes and fees. The only drawback for going with our standard rental cars are the gravel road restrictions typical of most of the national brands available in Alaska.

If you plan to travel on gravel roads like the Denali Highway or the road to McCarthy and Kennicott, we highly recommend that you upgrade to our Premium 4x4 SUV rentals. These are top-notch, four-wheel-drive vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler, Traverse, and Suburban. With this option you can travel su safely and reliably to some of Alaska's more remote yet drivable destinations.

Here is a great tip that can really help you make the most efficient use of your limited time in Alaska: We now offer one-way rentals of our Premium 4x4 SUVs and vans from Anchorage to Fairbanks and Fairbanks to Anchorage. This lets you cover more ground without "backtracking," or even combine a rental car with a trip on the Alaska Railroad.

We also have special offers for cruise passengers looking for Seward car rentals and Whittier car rentals.
