If you want to see everything Anchorage has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Payless. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can drive wherever you want to go, when you want. Make your upcoming getaway to Alaska even better with a Payless car rental.
With nearly a quarter-million people, Anchorage is a city that has plenty going on. Guests come to enjoy Anchorage's local attractions. But you may have your eye on exploring the burgeoning art scene. Whatever you choose to do first, you'll want to see as much of Anchorage as possible while on your road trip. And with your Payless rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
With more than 120 different locations in Canada, Europe, the United States, and South America, Payless Car Rental has grown substantially since its founding over 40 years ago in Spokane, Washington.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Payless's minimum age to rent a car in Anchorage is 21. Make sure to review Payless's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Anchorage. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Anchorage vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Payless in the United States. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Anchorage. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Payless does require a deposit when you book your rental. Payless will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Payless. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Anchorage has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Alaska has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've had a night out in downtown Anchorage or gone out downtown.
Payless typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Anchorage, having access to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Alaska, you can drive when you want to, without trying to wave down a cab or sign up for a ride-share.
