Alaska's main transportation corridor runs from the port town of Seward in Southcentral Alaska through Anchorage, Denali National Park, and into Fairbanks in the state's Interior. Most summer visitors rely on train and bus transportation to get from destination to destination, but many of our guests enjoy the independence that comes from driving yourself, particularly when 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. How can you make it even more budget-friendly? For a limited time we're offering $100 off self-drive vacation packages. Click here to learn more.

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 standard rental cars. Note that these rentals are not permitted on gravel roads in Alaska.
