2.0 MediocreApr 1 2021
Cons: They gave away our car. We got a deal through Kayak. I guess they did not want to honor the deal so they rented our car to someone else for twice the price. As a result I would never use Enterprise car rental or Kayak again!
6.0 GoodJan 3 2021
Pros: Several employees at counter carried in personal conversations using curse words (unprofessional). First car had a flat tire, second car did not have full tank of gas. Enterprise off airport where I was suppose to pick up car had already closed so got car at airport. Was never informed the rate would be 300 plus dollars more per month.Cons: With regards to reservation, should have been j formed I could turn car in next day and pick up original car offsite which was substantially lower in cost.
4.8 OkaySep 28 2020
Cons: Enterprise switched the pickup location due to location construction but failed to notify me. I reserved a drop off location (anchorage airport) different than the pickup location but the lady at the pickup location then tried to charge me extra (over and above my reservation amount) to drop off at the airport which was shown on my reservation.. I ignored her "upcharge threats" and dropped off per my reservation details anyway. I will not rent from Enterprise in Anchorage again, it was not a pleasant experience
8.0 ExcellentAug 17 2020
Pros: The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.Cons: The standard SUV seems to be a misnomer. It was more like a compact suv or small wagon. It did not have enough room for us.
3.6 MediocreAug 12 2020
Pros: Drop off was easy, staff working that day was professional.Cons: Pick up staff was uninterested in every part of transaction. Original rental vehicle offered was unacceptable, only option they would offer is an up-sale to the next size (more money for enterprise). That vehicle interior was dirty which I could not believe in our current COVID environment however that was the only thing available. Staff could care less as long as I drove away and they could move on to next customer.
10.0 ExcellentAug 7 2020
Pros: Everything was smooth and fast.
10.0 ExcellentJul 24 2020
Pros: Yes. The staff members were all very nice and friendly.Cons: NOthing. We were helped quickly after we got there. The car was ready. Everything was clearly explained to us. Quick check out and check in.
10.0 ExcellentJul 21 2020
Pros: The staff was very helpful. Our flight was running late and it was getting close to closing time. They offered to deliver and wait for us to arrive.
10.0 ExcellentJul 2 2020
Pros: The staff here are exceptional - I don’t say that often. John, the manager went above and beyond to take care of me.
2.0 MediocreJun 28 2020
Cons: went to pick up rental at location stated on conformation page . had to take taxi (25) they where not open called enterprise (well we tryed to call you on 6-2-2020 )I confirmed reservations on or about 6-15 a week before we fly all is good ...ok cool ...So wait for another taxi to take me back to airport (25) go to enterprise desk at airport BUT heres the kicker Airport in Anchorage AK has fees where the lot out side of airport doesn't so 399 plus tax 430 was my Quote..at airport it turned into 799 plus a 20% deposit

6.0 GoodMar 1 2021
Pros: Staff was really friendly. Car handled well in winter weather. Easy pick up and drop off.Cons: My rental felt overpriced — $175 for 26 hours and only used $5 worth of gas. Staff didn’t explain cost or meaning of other add ons, felt a little pushy. But I also recognize that that is their job!

9.6 ExcellentSep 4 2020

10.0 ExcellentMay 3 2021
Pros: Quick check in. Nice vehicle.Cons: Unsue
6.0 GoodMay 3 2021
Pros: The staff at the counter did not explain the pick up process adequately causing me confusion when I went to the garage. To make it worse, the person at the pick up booth wasn’t monitoring pick up or guiding customers so I left the garage believing the car would be checked out at the bottom. I then had to return to get the car checked out. At the time of drop off, staff didn’t meet me at the car to get mileage or check the car; they sat in the booth & acted as though they didn’t see me then were indignant when I said I’d wait for the process to be completed. In general, the staff at the time of pick up and drop off (booth) were both rude and lazy.Cons: Work on clear communication and being available to customers (not in the booth).

Pros: Van was perfect for four of us traveling together throughout parts of Alaska. Very good and comfortable and convenient vehicle. Only issue was that the front tires are going bald and should be replaced.Cons: . Only issue was that the front tires are going bald and should be replaced.
4.0 OkaySep 8 2020
Pros: The car was cleanCons: At pick up the staff was making extra requirements to rent that were not listed in the contract. They were rude and were offensive
2.0 MediocreAug 30 2020
Pros: It was spacious.Cons: It was filthy when I picked up. They did not clean it at all. I was also treated very rudely by the front desk person. I noticed my rear windshield wiper was broken after I left with the van. I called the next morning and was spoken to like a dog, by the gentleman at the desk. Overall horrible experience.
8.0 ExcellentAug 24 2020
Pros: Great car and easy process.Cons: We waited in line for a rental car for at least an hour. There were only three workers. If most people say when then are going to be picking up a car, then the staffing should reflect that. I will be avoiding budget because of the line which is a bummer because everything else was great.
7.2 GoodAug 20 2020
Pros: I was concerned about someone not being there to check the car when I picked it up and hoping I won’t be held reliable for scratches and things that were on the car when I got itCons: The car didn’t seem like it was cleaned very well

Cons: Could’ve been made clearer that the location isn’t at the airport. This was kind of a pain to deal with. It’s about a 10 mins drive outside the airport.
4.0 OkayMar 28 2021
Pros: They fulfilled the shuttle ride to the airport.Cons: Our car smelled horrific. We could barely stand to be in it.
2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2021
Pros: Dropping the car off the person checking the car in was very polite.Cons: When checking the car out the guy at the desk was extremely rude. He also said that the insurance you purchase through Kayak does not cover the car. I had to call and add insurance through my personal company before I could leave. I would also recommend putting winter tires on the vehicle when it’s being rented in Alaska during the winter.
10.0 ExcellentDec 16 2020
Pros: Easy out and return
9.6 ExcellentOct 17 2020

6.0 GoodOct 12 2020
Pros: Price was good and near by for pick upCons: Not having to wait around for about 15 minutes for someone to be able to get the rental process rolling.
8.0 ExcellentSep 29 2020
Pros: Check in staff/agent was not able to locate my rental reservation with my given name, then when asked why he could not find my reservation, stated it was a “common glitch” , then when I asked about the $500 deductible the agent (male) stated that if I did not like the $500 deductible that I could go to another car rental.Cons: Rental agent - young male Asian with ear ring needs to be taught better courtesy
4.0 OkaySep 24 2020
Pros: Nothing stood out as being noticeably good. They were short staffed which had the one front desk worker a little stressed. He wasn't the friendliest, but then again neither am I when I'm stressed. Be sure to read the fine print before booking. There's a $500 mandatory hold if you use a debit card to pay. Also, there's a charge per day for additional drivers. If you're from out of state, they require to see your plane tickets confirming your return flight. And if you do not take their insurance option, you have to show them proof of your own personal car insurance and it has to be full coverage. Also, don't be like me and not check to see if this location is at the airport before booking. This location is not the one at the airport and it'll be about a $15 cab/uber ride to get there.Cons: Be sure to read the fine print before booking.

10.0 ExcellentNov 12 2020
Pros: Friendly helpful staff
3.2 MediocreOct 31 2020
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.
9.6 ExcellentJul 22 2020
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).
7.2 GoodJun 28 2020
Pros: The car and priceCons: Staff member was horrible. He was very rude and was extremely unhelpful.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2020
Pros: The staff at the counter when we arrived gave us excellent information for the road conditions and for driving in Alaska. Snow tires were offered and needed. He was very friendly and helpful!Cons: nothing - pick up and drop off was a breeze!
7.6 GoodJan 31 2020
Pros: A great rental in every way, save one. (Mandated insurance, see below)Cons: If you cannot prove personal collision coverage, they mandated at least their minimal insurance package. Did not see anything about this when making the reservation. In looking at the fine print, this insurance provides a MAX of $1000 coverage for a cost of $30/day. It just seemed excessive in my opinion.
9.2 ExcellentJan 22 2020
Pros: The Buick SUV was very nice to drive even in the Alaska winter.Cons: The first car’s engine light was on and vibrating quite badly. Had to go back and filled out the paperwork to get another one.
8.0 ExcellentJan 6 2020
Pros: Friendly staff.
7.2 GoodDec 30 2019
Pros: The car was in good shape and worked out well for the area and weather conditions.Cons: 1) "Would you like tires with that?", when I picked up the car I'm told that the tires on the car I rented would not work in the weather conditions but if I paid extra I could get winter tires with studs. The roads were covered in packed snow and ice. There was no way you could get by without winter tires. 2) I was told "Not to fill up with gas when I returned it". The employee at the counter didn't ask my preference or give options but stated "don't fill up the car before returning it because we get a special rate of $2.50 a gallon and you would be charged almost $5 at the pump, we will fill and just charge you for what you used". That is what I was told and yet I ended up paying for a full tank, eventhough
7.6 GoodSep 30 2019
Pros: Not particularly. We had a reserved a vehicle at one price but because our plane was late they gave that vehicle away and then charged us 30% more for a replacement vehicle. Our original price should have been honored.Cons: The person helping us should have made more of an effort to honor the original pricing, especially since we had to drop from a sports vehicle to a mid sized SUV which is typically much less expensive.

Top tips for renting a car in Anchorage

  • Renting a car is by far the best option for travelers looking to explore the vast Alaskan landscapes that lay just short drives away from Anchorage. Driving is the best way to get to nearby places that are a must-see for everyone visiting Alaska, including the Chugach Mountains area with its hundreds of miles of wilderness trails. Some of the main access points in Chugach State Park are located 20 minutes away from downtown Anchorage. There are also 60 glaciers within 50 miles of the city, which means a car provides the comfort of defining your own route and hopping on and off whenever desired.
  • All the big car rental agencies can be found at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC), which is just 5 miles away from the city. Car rental services can be found in the new Rental Car Center, which is across from the South Terminal. The airport provides free shuttle buses every 15 minutes between the South Terminal, the North Terminal, and the Rental Car Center.
  • The roads in Anchorage are well-kept throughout the whole year, which means no chains are required even when it snows. However, be extra careful during the winter, as accidents are more likely to happen in tougher weather conditions. Moose also like to roam around freely, which means extra care is needed, particularly at night.
  • Traffic is not usually a huge problem in the city of Anchorage. However, if there are any special events taking place over the weekend, both Glenn Highway heading north and the Seward Hwy road heading south can experience congestion. On weekdays, avoid driving into or out of the city between 7:30 and 9 a.m., and 4 to 6 p.m, especially through the Glenn Highway. Fresh snow can also slow down traffic even more.

  • The speed limit on highways is 55 miles per hour, but in residential areas it is 25 mph, and 65 mph on some freeways. However, drivers can still be ticketed when driving within the speed limits if the speed they're driving is considered unsafe during harsh weather conditions.

  • The average gas prices in Anchorage are about $3.12 per gallon. Lower prices can range anywhere between $2.95 and $3.09 per gallon. Try to fill up the tank early in the morning or late in the evening and avoid doing it on weekends, or Thursdays and Fridays before long weekends, as gas stations can get pretty crowded.

  • Parking spaces in downtown Anchorage are usually scarce. Street parking is typically metered, time-limited, or both. Parking is free between 6 p.m. and 9 a.m., and on weekends and public holidays. Depending on demand and on how many hours one is paying for, meter pricing can range anywhere between $1.25 and $1.75 an hour. There are also parking garages spread throughout the city, and some hotels even offer free parking.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge.

Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
