Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Fairbanks Payless rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Fairbanks?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Fairbanks?
Payless's minimum age to rent a car in Fairbanks is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Payless's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Fairbanks?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Fairbanks. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Fairbanks trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Payless car rental?
Payless does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Payless will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Fairbanks. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Payless rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, 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 return the car to Payless.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Fairbanks's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've gone out downtown or gone out in Fairbanks's downtown.
Does Payless offer one-way rentals in Fairbanks?
Payless typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Payless. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
