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.
