Top tips for renting a car at Anchorage Airport

  • You can access the city center from Anchorage Airport (ANC) using hotel shuttle, taxis, and rideshare services, but none provides an excellent travel experience as driving a rental car. You can plan your own driving schedule and make stops at the Alaska Native Heritage Center or Anchorage Museum at your pleasure – something you can't enjoy with public transport. Besides, rental cars provide top-notch safety and performance because they are subject to scheduled maintenance and have low mileage counts.
  • If you're concerned about how you can minimize your car rental at Anchorage Airport budget with your Anchorage Airport car rental, then we advise that you book your desired rental car in advance. If you're planning to travel during the summer, booking at least 8-12 months out is an excellent idea. Alternatively, you can also leverage off-airport rental agencies that operate a few minutes from the airport, and they're likely to grant you a discount if you choose to negotiate the charges.
  • Returning your car to the respective car rental at Anchorage Airport agency is as easy as the pickup process because you return it to the same location. Once you arrive at the airport, follow the "Rental Car Return" sign to the parking lot. If you return the car during the after-hours, park the car and place the completed contract and keys in the dropbox. Remember to take all your personal items from the car before proceeding to your departure terminal.
  • Traffic in Anchorage is fairly good, but you can expect bumper-to-bumper traffic during rush hour like any other urban center. If you're driving to the flight hub from the downtown area, it would be best to avoid Glenn Hwy because it experiences the heaviest traffic from 4 pm to 5 pm, worse at 4.30 pm to 5.30 pm. In the morning, the rush hour begins from 7.30 am to 9 am. To drive smoothly and uninterrupted, try to get out early; you'll avoid the heavy traffic on Seward, Parks, and Glenn Hwys.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Anchorage Airport for ₪306 or less
  • Book your rental car at Anchorage Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Anchorage Airport

  • Where can I find car rental counters at Anchorage Airport?

    The Anchorage Airport Authority built a new Rental Car Center opposite the South Terminal, and it's where you'll find on-airport rental car agencies. However, you'll have to board an airport shuttle to the rental car center that picks up arriving passengers after every 15min. If you arrive at the South Terminal, take the elevator, escalator, or staircase to the ground level and follow the "Rental Car" signs through the tunnel to the shuttle pickup point (about 100 yards long). From the North Terminal, you can request a pickup to the rental center using the wall-mounted telephone next to the Terminal Connector. Once you reach the car rental building, you can rent a vehicle from any of the reputable car rental at Anchorage Airport agencies.

The pickup never happened as when I arrived I was informed for the first time that I could only use a credit card. The employee was aggressive and standoff-ish. I would suggest putting a warning of what type of payment was acceptable at certain locations as a pop up or red lettering before completing the booking. I was using my cellphone to book so maybe double check that as I never got any indication for this. Luckily I was able to have my friend pick me up but the whole experience was upsetting.

Pros:

Easy pick up and return.

Cons:

Avis cars had decals in back window identifying them as rental. In Anchorage, police target rental cars for tickets knowing that most are out of state and can not afford the time or money to return to contest the alleged violation. Easy money and they set up traps. I was given a ticket for running a stop light. Police had spotter (they said) but I was stopped several blocks down the road. Heavy traffic, stop and go, etc... On returning the rental, I talked to two other renters who also got tickets. Easy money for the city. I also saw a drug deal in a hotel parking lot. No police around. Guess they were looking for traffic 'violators' in rental cars. First and last visit to Alaska and these are the two most memorable moments.

The price would have been reasonable. The convenience of another rental company being right next store with better policies. The ease of penalty free cancelation.

Cons:

Be more like the rest of the world and not require a copy of my insurance when its in my car 200 miles away. I had endured this once before. I got in and was ready to go only to learn I couldn't rent the car because you needed a copy of my insurance. A first in all my years of renting cars. I couldnt recall which company that was at the time of this reservation so to avoid that issue happening again. After making my reservation. I called to make sure. And was told nope. As long as your using a major credit card, which is consistent with the rest of the world, you should be fine. So, I show up only to have that contradicted. And Im told oh everyone here knows that. Well ..... apparently everyone does not. And I took my business down a few counters where they don't require that. I was also told yah if your a resident we need proof but if non resident. We don't. What? The seems backwards but hey.I have a credit card with coverage. And two auto polices that cover rentals. But other than a company offering me coverage for a fee. Ive never had to provide proof. All over the country. Last time I had to get picked up and driven across town and dig my vehicle out to get my card. And come back etc. Huge delays to my arrival plans. Ridiculous and unacceptable. You guys need to get on the same page. And get WiFi so people can use there phone or laptop to access emails to retrieve a copy if they can successfully get one emailed to them after hours.

Pros:

Great value for money. No "hidden fees".

Cons:

Their phone-based customer service. It takes hours, literally, for them to pick the phone at the airport location. If you select any other option, it takes you to a Thrifty's call center in the Philippines, where they cannot access your reservation (because the Anchorage airport location is a Thrifty's franchisee location).
