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.
Ryan was flexible and everything was ok. The Mazda is in good conditions.
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!
Great gas mileage and Brandon is flexible and communicates promptly. The car is very basic- manual locks, windows, etc.
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.
Excellent!! The vehicle was very clean and just as described. No problems at all!! Kwang Ho went out of his way to accommodate our schedule. I highly recommend renting from him!!!
My husband and I had an awesome honeymoon road trip in Hallie’s Outback. Her communication was great and super helpful going into our trip. Would definitely recommend her vehicle to others!
This was my first time using TURO. Ali and his family provided a great service. They were on time for drop off and pickup even thought I had to return the vehicle at 5am. The Toyota Camry was a good dependable vehicle for our adventures around Alaska. I will definitely use Ali when I return to Alaska and I do recommend his vehicles.
Lyndsey is very laid back but prompt and communicative. Her car worked well for our needs and was roomy with lots of storage space.
Mike was great! Dropped the car off at the airport and picked it up. Made my trip very convenient. Would highly recommend
Over, was very helpful. Wouldn’t have had the trip the had with out him. He even dropped me off at Beartooth after words. Would rent from him again
This car was great. Excellent gas mileage. Jeffrey and his wife are wonderful to deal with. They accepted our late arrival within minutes and were super cool. Thank you so much and I highly recommend!
First time user of Turo, was easy to use. Rodney was clean and drove well.
My wife and I enjoyed using this great car. Pick up and drop off was a breeze, thank you!
Everything went as planned. The car pick up and return was flawless
This was my first time in Alaska and my first time using Turo and Jeff made this one of the best experiences I could’ve asked for! He communicated everything ahead of time and even offered to pick up/drop off at the airport instead of the set location. I really appreciated his flexibility and hospitality, and the car is super fun to drive as well. Definitely will be recommending Jeff to all my friends who visit Anchorage in the future!
Thanks! Mary was very generous and flexible. The car worked out great.
Joe was a fantastic host. He was friendly, easy to work with, and he has a lot of great stories to share. The car was clean and worked great!I highly recommend Joe and his cars.
Jimmy was a great host. He arrived early for drop off and pick up. He responded to my texts promptly. Vehicle was very clean and had a full tank of gas. His BMW was well maintained and reliable. Loved driving it. Highly recommended.
Anne was great! Her Subaru was clean and pretty amazing! Now we both want new Subarus with the eyesight function! Great gas milage and very comfortable! Can't wait to come back and rent it again.
10 out of 10 would rent from her again! She had an incredible amount of daily miles which was perfect for my family of 5 to travel with and it was the best bang for our buck to travel as much of Alaska as we could with it! She worked with us and our ever-changing itinerary while being incredibly responsive. This is a luxurious car as well. We loved every minute.
Anthony was super easy to communicate with, friendly, and made my first Turo experience a breeze! His car ran great and was the perfect reliable vehicle to take us around Anchorage, Talkeetna and Denali. Would 100% recommend his car and would definitely rent from Anthony again on our next trip to Alaska.
We had a great trip and recommend Ali and his vehicle. Pickup / dropoff was really smooth, the vehicle was very clean and it was a great experience. Thank you!
Andrew is the man! Highly recommended. He didn’t leave me with any questions about this whole process. I was skeptical using this service, but he eased my mind with the great communication. Thanks Andrew. If I make it back there, I’ll hit you up for sure.
Rodney was a wonderful host and provided a clean, reliable vehicle. Would definitely recommend!
Great first experience with Turo! Jeff was an excellent “host” and worked around my schedule and location. The car worked flawlessly, and got 30mpg, which was a pleasant surprise. As a solo female traveler, I never felt uncomfortable at all renting from Jeff, and would absolutely do so again.
Had a great trip, no problems with the car. Very convenient
Rory was great. This was my first time using Turo and he made everything easy. He quickly responded to messages and was extremely accommodating. The car was in excellent condition and very clean. Highly recommended!
Lashonda was flexible and responsive, and the Mercedes was great to drive— thanks!
Mary had fantastic communication and flexibility and renting her Prius worked out great!
Lu lu was great! Car was clean and ran great, and had good mileage! Wins all around
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!!
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.
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.
Great Experience! Looking forward to working with you again!
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.
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.
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!
First off let me say, the service was amazing. My flight coming up from LAX was delayed, then after waiting for my bag to come out of baggage claim, it ended up being about 30 minutes late for my meet time. Över was very flexible and waited for me throughout my whole ordeal. The car is well maintained and although it has a couple of bumps and bruises, the agreement was very clear and it was a flawless transition. The car worked great and was my best friend throughout my stay in AK. I HIGHLY recommend using Över and his cars. Next time I’m up here, I’m definitely coming back to him.
This is my first time using Turo and Anne made it easy for me. Communication and Vehical delivery was fast and prompt
First experience with Turo...Lu was a pleasure to do business with and the Pacifica is a great ride for exploring AK!
Great experience! Dave was super friendly, and understanding about anything that came up. He even updated me on road blockages during the wildfires and kept me posted on what was going on. Dave's a great guy and couldn't speak more highly of my experience with him.
Anatoly provided a great car rental experience - the car was very clean and he dropped off and picked up the car at the airport for us! Would recommend him for anyone traveling to AK in the future!
Vance was such a friendly host the entire time of this trip, even with the setbacks that we experienced. Very communicative and the car itself was a great and safe car to drive.
This was my first time using Turo and Sergio made it a great first time experience! He was flexible with the pick up and drop of times and always responded quickly to my messages. Definitely recommend
Easy to communicate with fast and easy pickup. Car ran well.
J is a nice,helpful, and considerate person. The car is in great condition and J offered airport pick for us! We had a wonderful trip here!
Caleb was great to work with! Very responsive. Car was as expected and got us where we needed to go!
Jimmy’s car is amazing and he was knowledgeable and great to work with on our trip in Alaska!
BEST way to begin a first trip to Alaska! J is incredibly generous to both pickup and drop off at the airport. Really made my experience top notch, much appreciated!
Lu lu herself is amazing!! She was very flexible and willing to work things out with us. She was very pleasant to work with. We will definitely use her again and recommend her to friends and family. The car as well is just perfect! It drives very smooth. Love the sports mode! It saves a lot of gas either way. Two thumbs up on this very experience. It contributed to a very memorable Alaskan experience!! Love it!!
Great car, on time, fast responder and really good communication.
Dave was super good at communicating and answering my thousands of questions. Nice clean car that gets ya from A to B.
Car for 2 days in ANC, drive to and from Interview and ride to Airport. Över was flexible for pickup and ride to airport, car was clean. Most importantly, Över was professional, honest and a gracious host. Highly recommended!
Competitive price and convienient pickup. Great people to rent from.
Such an awesome first experience with Turo. Thank you for making my trip so much easier! Awesome and nice owner. Thank you again!
Picking up the Fusion was SUPER easy (even though I was used to picking up parked Turos in the past) and I was in text communication with the owner the whole time. The car was clean and ready to go! Return was also easy, they were very flexible with our early dropoff time of 4:30am. I will definitely come back to him if I'm in the area again! Seamless experience.
This was my first time using Turo and all my hesitations have been put to ease. Ali made the pick up and drop off easier than a rental car. Right on time and easy efficient communication. Car was mechanically sound and provided us with reliable transportation during our trip to Anchorage. Will use again
Aaron was kind and very accommodating. The car drove well and was very clean.
Khristian was so nice and the car ran perfect. This was by far the best option for us. Our daughter said the rental car agent at the airport told her that only people who are desperate rent from them.
This was my first time using Turo. The experience was great! Made my trip awesome. I will definitely rent from Ali again!
We had a wonderful time renting Joe's Prius for a week-long trip. The car was very well maintained (it felt like riding in a new car). Joe was also very friendly and gave us great tips about sightseeing in Alaska. The Prius was a great way to see the state and helped us save lots on gas. :)
We had a great roadtrip driving Ethan's C300. The car was fun amd smooth to drive. It's clean inside. Ethan also prepared travel guides in the car. The communication with Ethan was also great. Would definitely recommend.
Andrew's car was clean, all his instructions were clear, and the car was in a convenient location for me to pickup and return. Highly recommend.
Jhayde made everything extremely simple and was understanding with a couple hiccups I had. Good car and great dude
Rented this car for almost 2 weeks and it handled beautifully! The gas mileage was phenomenal, drove it down to Homer and back. Pickup and return were a complete breeze! 10/10!!
I had a great experience with Över. We made a last minute booking and he was super accommodating and kind. Would definitely book again!
Easy to work with and communicated everything I needed to know.
Över’s car was very nice. He was very punctual in picking us up from the airport and dropping us off.
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!!
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
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. 😊
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.
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.
While the drive north isn’t instantly dramatic, take Alaska 1 toward until it becomes the beautiful Glenn Highway to Palmer. Your Anchorage car rental alternative will savor the twists along the river.
A local drive that takes you up into the northern reaches of the Chugach Mountains, this drive swoops you around the fingered edges of Eklutna Lake for impressive views.
