Description

Travel in comfort while enjoying the beauty that surrounds this beautiful state of Alaska. Perfect for your Alaskan Adventure - whether you’re heading North to explore Denali, hiking Hatcher’s Pass, or South to Girdwood and don’t miss out on an unforgettable wildlife glacier cruises in Whittier, Portage and Seward. The Kenai Peninsula and Homer are great fishing destinations not to mention a beautiful place to visit. This dependable SUV is the ideal vehicle for your vacation to the Last Frontier! There's seating for up to seven but very comfortable for 4-5 if want a little more room for luggage. You're equipped for adventure. Yes it has 4WD but that doesn't mean you can go off-roading. Don't need the 3rd row, lower the seats and have more space in the rear for your cargo. Drive with peace of mind with driver-assist technologies.

Parking details

If you are flying into Anchorage and want your vehicle waiting for you at the Airport select the Ted Stevens International Airport as the pickup and return option.

I will have your vehicle waiting for you. Thank you

Guidelines

I want you to have a safe and wonderful trip. Turo requires that you follow all traffic laws. I care about your safety. I care about the safety of others on the road. And I care about the safety of my vehicle. Make sure you have read the Turo Vehicle use policy in addition too: -No Smoking or Vaping. (cleaning fee will apply) -No Off-roading or gravel roads -Restricted Highways: *Dempster Highway *Denali Highway *Elliott Highway *Dalton Highway (Haul Road) *McCarthy Highway *Steese Highway *Taylor Highway *Swanson River Road (Kenai) *Skilak Loop *Tustamena Lake Road (Kenai) *Marathon Road *All other unimproved roads including any BEACH ROADS not listed are Off Limits -No Pets -No Fish or Wild Game. This will destroy the vehicle as the odor doesn’t clean out easily ($250 cleaning fee will apply) and it will attract the bears. Please remember to return the vehicle with the same cleanliness you received it in to avoid any cleaning fees after return. To avoid additional fees, vacuum up excessive dirt, sand, or crumbs, wipe up any sticky spots or spills, and check the exterior for any significant dirt or mud that may need to be washed off. Also, don't forget to return the fuel level to where it was when you received the vehicle. If you loose the key fob, you will be financially responsible for the replacement of the key and any cost associated for me to have a spare key delivered to you. You must notify TURO and me immediately if you are involved in any accident. You must also notify TURO and me if you receive any traffic citations, which you are responsible to pay.

Faqs

  • Can the vehicle be picked up at the Airport?

    Yes. When you make your reservation, select Ted Stevens International Airport under the Pickup and Return drop down options.

  • Do I have to clean the car at the end of a trip?

    To avoid additional FEES (See cleaning levels table in the Cleaning and Disinfection policy https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000808347-Cleaning-and-disinfection-policy-for-guests). To avoid fees, vacuum up excessive dirt, sand, or crumbs, wipe up any sticky spots or spills, and check the exterior for any significant dirt or mud that may need to be washed off.

  • What if I need to keep the car longer?

    No problem! Just submit an extension request through the app at least one hour before the end of your trip and as long as it isn't booked to another guest I'm certain to approve.

  • Can someone else drive the car?

    As the primary driver you are the only one who may drive the vehicle. However, you can submit a secondary driver to Turo for review and approval, and once approved, they may be added to your trip to drive the car. You will still need to be present at pickup and return.

Kathleen was an AMAZING host and the Ford Explorer was super nice and clean. I only wish I could leave her more than 5 stars!

Kathleen's response

It was a pleasure having Robert as our guest. We communicated well through messaging and they took great care of our car. It would be our pleasure to host them again . They were great!!! Thank you !

Very happy to have had the opportunity to rent the SUV from Kathleen. The Ford Explorer was immaculately clean and with a full gas tank when we picked it up. It even had an ice cooler and some essential supplies, thoughtfully included in the trunk (beat that Hertz and Avis !!). Kathleen was always available for any questions, her communication was A+ throughout. We had an excellent experience driving during our trip. Everything went smoothly and the return process was efficient and effortless as well. Highly recommend for anyone considering renting an SUV for their Alaska trip. Consider this better than renting from a high end rental like Hertz or Avis.

Great vehicle and great communication from the host. Airport shuttle pick-up and drop off was perfect. I wish the Turo app was as good. The rental app has it's quirks and our host was very accommodating.

This car was beautiful and well taken care of. Kathleen also included a travel kit made up of a cooler, first aid kit and the Milepost book with wonderful info about traveling through Alaska. I will definitely rent through Kathleen the next time I need a car in Alaska.

Although last minute, Kathleen was very flexible in ensuring we got what we needed when our flight arrived at 3 am. She was also extremely responsive and helpful. As a first time user of Turo, there were a lot of requirements I didn’t quite understand and she was very patient to go through the process with me. Aside from the nice things I mentioned about her, the car itself is very new and extremely clean. I’d definitely recommend renting her car. Thanks again, Kathleen!!! :)
