With close to a quarter-million people, Anchorage is a city that has lots going on. Many travelers come to have fun at Anchorage's local attractions.

CarRentals.com works with some of the most dependable dealers in the industry. Avis was the first car rental company located in an airport and they have over 70 years of providing rental cars to visitors from all over. With an assorted fleet of vehicles and over 5,000 locations worldwide, Avis is sure to offer you a great experience from pick-up to drop-off.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Anchorage is 21. Make sure to review Avis's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Anchorage. Compact or economy cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Anchorage trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Avis.
Anchorage has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Alaska has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've gone out downtown or spent a night out in downtown Anchorage.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Avis. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Anchorage, having the keys to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to explore more of Alaska, you can leave when you like, without trying to signal for a cab or sign up for a ride-share.
