Parking access and heavy city traffic should always be kept in mind when picking your ride. While large people-movers and SUVs are comfortable and offer plenty of legroom, their size can make them harder to park and maneuver. Given that Downtown Anchorage is just 0.5 miles from Anchorage, there's every possibility you'll spend some time cruising the downtown streets. Our advice? Choose a car that's big enough for your entire group and your luggage while still being compact enough to cope with city driving. Our standard-size vehicles should do the trick.
There's more than enough choice when it comes to renting a car in Downtown Anchorage. From SUVs with space to spare to zippy little compacts that make parking a breeze, you'll find it all here.
