Tucked into the Southern fringes of Alaska on the Cook Inlet, Anchorage is surrounded by stunning wilderness, and is also the most populated city in the state — meaning you get all the benefits of a hub in the most scenic of locations.
The city was rocked by earthquakes in the 1960s, and was rebuilt as a modern city with enough to keep the steady flow of seasonal workers, tourists, and locals entertained. Anchorage is also the ideal place to set off on adventures to other far-flung Alaskan regions, so grab your Anchorage airport car rental alternative and head into the wild.
Natural beauty is why visitors are drawn to Alaska, so dress warmly and prepare to hop in your Anchorage car rental alternative to explore and learn about the land.
Just 20 minutes from downtown Anchorage, the Chugach Mountains tower over the city and are a quick, breathtaking escape from city life. Hike Flattop Mountain or Lakeside Trail for excellent views.
This center preserves and shares the cultures of 11 indegenious Alaskan groups, through story-telling, dance, language classes, and replica villages that show you how people thrived well before central heating.
Follow this extraordinary 11-mile trail around along the Pacific coast and through the dunes near Kincaid Park for views of Fire Island and a moose, if you’re lucky!
Skip the rental car counter
From glaciers to whales, there is so much nature to experience just outside the city that you’ll want to book an Anchorage car rental alternative on Turo to fit it all in.
Take your Anchorage car rental alternative two hours south to Seward where you can board a cruise to see some of the most pristine natural scenery and all manner of whales.
A quick hour and a half drive in your Anchorage car rental alternative gets you to this immense 10-story high glacier. Hike this massive ice block via the Byron Glacier Trail.
Known as the quirkiest city in Alaska — and the setting of the 90s show Northern Exposure — take your Anchorage car rental alternative two hours north for the Wilderness Woman Contest on the way to Denali.
I had to change my trip many times and Lu was very understanding making the trip very stress free.
Super clean, fun, and classy vehicle. My parents and I drove it down to Seward and Soldotna for a short trip. The trip had beautiful weather, great for driving this vehicle. Ian was a super host. He dropped it off to my hotel two hours earlier than expected, cleaned and ready to go. He also let me keep it a bit later then too. He was so easy to communicate with. Five star host. *****Great time! I would do it again without hesitation. Thanks for the positive experiences!
Jeff provided a great car for our trip. Really appreciated his flexibility, car cleanliness, and ease of pickup/dropoff. Highest recommendation for any Turo user.
That was my first experience and I was delighted with everything: car, communication, easiness and everything!! Nick really supported me a lot along my first experience!!
Just a great overall experience. Hamza was flexible on the pickup and drop off and spent a lot of time explaining the Tesla to me. All in all a great experience!
Ryan was flexible and everything was ok. The Mazda is in good conditions.
Very easy to work with and flexible on times. Would recommend for future renters.!!!
Jared made the experience easy for a first timer and the car was perfect! Many thanks!
David was great to work with and the car was everything we needed plus! Made our trip very enjoyable.
Easy to work with and communicated everything I needed to know.
It worked great for our trip! Ali and his son/partner communicated well and responded our questions or requests promptly! I will definitely use them again if need be.
Easy pick up and drop off near downtown anchorage. Car was a little loud but pretty fun to drive. Worked great for getting around anchorage.
I have rented from Lu and Shady once before and it was a pleasure just as it was the last time! Now I'm renting from them again and you know what! I think as long as they have a vehicle for me to rent from them when and if I should ever need one again take a guess who I will be renting with!
Great Experience! Looking forward to working with you again!
Lu lu was great! Car was clean and ran great, and had good mileage! Wins all around
Brock, Ali’s son, was an incredible host. He met us punctually at the airport and passed the car off in a very professional manner. Communication was great and there were absolutely no hiccups. This was my first time using Turo and I was a bit skeptical, but it was better and more convenient than a standard rental car company.
Ersin is so kind and takes really great care of his vehicles! I’d highly recommend booking with him. He has excellent food suggestions as well.
Kenneth was great with pickup/drop off at the airport. Bring an aux cable and car charger adapter if you hope to connect your cell to the audio system and keep it charged!
Thanks Chip for being such an easy person to work with!! We really appreciated the pick up from the airport
Clean vehicle, no issues. Over was great, very friendly. We are new to Turo and will definitely use again!
Went above and beyond for us. Made our trip so much easier and really let us enjoy our time with no worries.
This car was really fun to drive. Wonderful people to work with. The whole trip was enjoyable.
Sarah made it so easy for us to pick up and drop off! The car was ready to go with a snack pack and paper towels. Very thoughtful. We are so happy we booked with Sarah!
Hallie’s Subaru was the perfect way to get around in Alaska. She was so easy to communicate with for pickup and drop off, and the car itself ran beautifully. Totally easy and would definitely recommend this for your visit! Thanks, Hallie!
Absolutely amazing host. First time to area gave me great advice. Car was super clean and well maintained. Look forward to using Ali’s services again.
Gary was great! Very nice and understanding when some crazy road trouble changed our plans a little bit. Car is well cared for and worked perfectly. Would definitely rent from him again.
Jeremy was very kind and helpful. He found ways to make things work. He was very laid back and easy going while also being very professional and personable. I appreciated the back up camera, sunroof, and accommodation to allow me to travel around with my canine when I couldn't fit my pet's near travel crate in the vehicle completely set up. Jeremy made this particular trip to Anchorage much more bareable and manageable. Thank you, Jeremy, for being such a pleasure to work with and made this my best Turo experience thus far! I would definitely want to rent from him again in the future. 😊
Över’s car was very nice. He was very punctual in picking us up from the airport and dropping us off.
Ali was great, easy pick up and drop off. No problems with the car. Good gas mileage and smooth ride. Would use as a ride again
Holy cow! This was, without a doubt the easiest part of our trip. The car was exactly what we needed and Brandon was a breeze to deal with. I would definitely rent with him again next time we're in town. Thanks so much Brandon!!!
Clean economic vehicle and friendly, punctual communication. Was a great car on a great trip!
Fabulous service all around! This was my first time with Turo, and I wasn't really sure how the experience will be. But due to the high season in Anchorage, the car availability at the conventional rental companies was almost nonexistent, and the rental price with Turo was significantly cheaper... so, I went for it. I was pleasantly surprised! Ali was right there at the airport curb to deliver the vehicle. He communicated with me very well and I received the car smoothly with no fuss whatsoever! The car was very clean and in very good shape. The return was as smooth as well. Overall, a fantastic experience! I will highly recommend this car rental service!
Was a pleasure to deal with, quick to respond, and overall great communication. Would recommend for anyone visiting/passing through Anchorage and needs a car for the day.
Great car, economical, convenient, and no issues at all. Thank you!!
Marc was very flexible and responsive. This was my first experience using Turo and I will definitely be using the service again because of how easy and convenient and cool Marc was. Thanks!!
Ashley was awesome, car was great, had to rearrange a few things on drop off and she was nothing but accommodating and nice! Would recommend 1000x.
My first Turo rental went flawlessly! Jeff was easy to work with!
Friendly service, good car. I would definitely rent from them again
Ali was fantastic to work with! He was incredibly responsive, punctual and overall just a kind and pleasant person to work with. The car was clean, gas efficient and reliable. Thanks for the great service!
Great car. Outstanding value and Caleb was so easy to work with!
Lu is an absolute joy. I highly recommend her cute mini as a way to explore Alaska if you’ve packed accordingly! I’m so glad I booked with her!
Jared had really great communication throughout and was flexible in letting me change pickup and drop off times as needed. The vehicle worked great for our day trip and gets great gas mileage! Would recommend Jared and his vehicle for road trips in the area!
Had a great time in Alaska. Enjoyed taking the Mini to see many great sights. It was a lot of fun, and added some additional excitement. Mark was also a great host. Great communication and punctuality.
This was a great car for getting around Anchorage in. Fits in any parking space but still had enough space for our luggage and was very comfortable.
The car worked well for our trip, no issues at all with car, communication or pickup/drop off nice, smooth, straightforward
This is the 3rd vehicle I’ve rented from Ali, once again, very clean and well maintained vehicle, perfect for my family. Thanks Ali!
Great car, great service. It was really easy to pick up, use and drop off the vehicle. Andrew was super friendly and helpful, especially for me as a new Turo user. I definitely recommend this car! I'd use it again in a heartbeat.
Amazing experience! My mom and I had an awesome experience in Anchorage and with över’s nissan altima. Will definitely do again!
J was great - he was friendly and his car was perfect. Need a car? Look no further!
Tyler was incredible. He was flexible with us and so kind throughout the whole process.
Jeff was fantastic and was there immediately when I called him to pick me up....car drove amazing and was perfect for all our adventures....will rent again from Jeff on next trip!
It was very easy to communicate with over . Overall process was super easy and nice . Car worked well , without any issues .
Sean worked with me on a last minute booking and early return. His Kia fit my end use and I would borrow again without hesitation.
This was bar none, the best experience I've ever had when renting a car. I'll never use the big corporation rental fleets again. Everything went smoothly and the price couldnt be better. Ethan is a super friendly guy and willing to do whatever is needed to have a fun and stress free(car wise) vacation.
Demetrius was great with communication and very nice! The car ran so smooth and has great gas mileage!
Mark was super amazing and the Mini was awesome and fun to drive! Mark accommodated my late schedule change for pick up and drop off and was super laid back and easy to work with.
Burak was very responsive and took care of extra trips even after midnight. Thank you so much. I'm so glad that Turo was able to take care of me in Anchorage Alaska. The price was right and the service was just right. Ready to serve and took care of what I needed.
Had an issue with replacing a part that I asked to pay for on my own instead of the dealership price which don’t happen unfortunately- otherwise a great car.
Karen was very friendly and helpful, she gave us great recommendations around anchorage. Car was in great condition also fuel efficient. I would love to have a trip again!
Great customer service. Was very flexible with the pick up and drop off location! I would recommend Ali and definitely use his service again.
Great guy, offered us ride to and back to the airport. Easy to deal with.
Ali was fantastic. He had water for us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend others to use him as well as ourselves. A+++
This was my first time using Turo and Jeff made it a great first experience! He was extremely flexible with meeting times and made it easy for us by picking us up and dropping us off at the airport. He responded to any questions promptly and was overall friendly and helpful with suggestions of places to visit on our trip. His car was comfortable and easy to drive with tons of trunk space for all of our luggage. I would highly recommend Jeff and his car for any transportation needs around the Anchorage area!
Very Nice Car. No troubles. Very understanding with delays in flight schedule.
Easy to communicate with and arrange. 5 stars for my first Turo. Car sipped gasoline and did just fine getting us to Denali National Park and back.
Dominic has a friendly crew that is flexible with pick up and drop off. This particular vehicle was clean, full of gas, and altogether perfect for an Alaskan road trip.
flexible pick up and drop, gives good instruction. I would definitely have the trip again with James Car! Thank you James
J was super flexible and easy going about the rental. And super fun to chat with.
Very helpful in getting us to the airport under stressful circumstances!
Joseph was great! An eclectic wealth of information and history! He also has a air b n b!
Scott and his wife Jamie have been amazing hosts. They were willing to accommodate a drop-off and return situation with me. Additionally, they continuously made sure that I was taken care of. Recommend.
It’s a small car with a soul which will take you where you want to go.
Overall very happy with the service Ali provided. I have had a negative experience in the past with Turo; however Ali has completely flipped those expectations. He initiated and maintained constant communication throughout that was much appreciated.
Car was amazing. We got good service. He is nice person and help full
Super nice and even when I needed an extra two hours cause our plane was pushed out later, they let us keep it a little longer.
For incredible picture-perfect views, take the 125-mile highway to Seward in your Anchorage car rental alternative for epic hikes, sheep sightings, and Turnagain Arm.
