Top tips for renting a car at Kenai airport

  • Kenai Municipal Airport (ENA) is just a few minutes from Kenai, less than 20 minutes from Soldotna, and under 30 minutes from Sterling. It is a hub for Alaska Airlines and has just one terminal.  There is no public bus system providing service to this airport. You can book a shuttle or take a taxi to town from the airport. However, having a rental car will leave you free to explore all that the Kenai Peninsula has to offer on your own schedule.
  • At this airport, you can choose from different car rental agencies including Avis, Alamo, Budget, National, and Thrifty. The car rental desks are conveniently located inside the terminal right across from the arrival hall. Most of the car rental desks are open during the week starting at around 6 am and closing at around 9 pm. During the weekends, the car rental desks are staffed from around 8 am to 9 pm.
  • Compare the benefits of each car rental agency and find the cheapest deal for your Kenai Airport car hire using KAYAK. This is also a good way to search for the perfect car size, car type, and add-ons such as GPS, roadside assistance, XM radio, and more for your Kenai vacation. If you're traveling to Kenai in the summer, it is going to be a lot busier than in other seasons. Therefore, it is best to book your Kenai Airport car rental a few months in advance to ensure that you get the type of car you want.
  • The car rentals at Kenai Airport are kept on-site, a short walk away from the terminal. Once you've signed your contract, you can head over to the rental car lot to get your vehicle. You'll return your vehicle to this same location. If your flight leaves Kenai before or after business hours, you can arrange with the car rental agency to return it after hours. Just don't forget to grab your belongings and lock the vehicle. There is a drop box for the keys and contracts near the car rental desks.
  • Book your rental car at Kenai airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Kenai airport

  • What are the requirements for a car rental at Kenai Airport?

    You must be able to present the agent with a copy of a valid driver's license when renting a car at Kenai Airport. If you have additional drivers, they'll need to show their licenses too. If you're not from the United States, it is best to have an international driver's permit with you. Foreign drivers might also be asked to present a passport or another form of identification.

  • How can I pay for my car rental at Kenai Airport?

    At this location, you can pay for your car rental with a major credit card such as one from American Express, MasterCard or Visa. You'll also need to show the credit card that you used to book your rental car even if you don't want to use that card to pay for your car. Debit cards are not accepted in place of a credit card. However, if you want, they might be willing to put a hold on your credit card and once the rental car contract is complete, you can pay for it with a debit card.

  • In addition to car rental services, what other services and amenities are offered at Kenai Airport?

    Kenai Airport offers an array of amenities for you to enjoy while you're at the facility. There are ATM machines for quick money withdrawal, complimentary luggage carts, an airport lounge, and shops that specialize in goods made in Alaska. If you're traveling with a pet, there is a pet relief area outside of the terminal lobby. This is fenced-in so your pet can stretch its legs and get a little exercise.

My flight arrived at 10:00. The Avis counter closed at 9:00 so I had to get a cab to my hotel. In the morning I walked a mile to the airport to get my car. When I asked why they close before all the flights for the night have arrived they said Well sorry we close at 9:00, still want the car or not?

Pros:

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).

We had a problem with our vehicle and were told to come in and quickly swap it out with an identical vehicle that they were holding for us. The replacement vehicle wasn’t available when we arrived and the staff were unaware of the situation. The exchange was not quick as had been claimed. We were satisfied until this moment.

There was a long line at checkin, but the attendant was efficient. She did not offer any hard copy of the rental agreement; she said she would email it to me but I never received it. The car had less than 4000 miles on it and performed well.
