10.0 Excellent11 Jun 2021
Cons: It was a flawless experience
2.0 Mediocre1 Apr 2021
Cons: They gave away our car. We got a deal through Kayak. I guess they did not want to honor the deal so they rented our car to someone else for twice the price. As a result I would never use Enterprise car rental or Kayak again!
6.0 Good3 Jan 2021
Pros: Several employees at counter carried in personal conversations using curse words (unprofessional). First car had a flat tire, second car did not have full tank of gas. Enterprise off airport where I was suppose to pick up car had already closed so got car at airport. Was never informed the rate would be 300 plus dollars more per month.Cons: With regards to reservation, should have been j formed I could turn car in next day and pick up original car offsite which was substantially lower in cost.
4.8 Okay28 Sep 2020
Cons: Enterprise switched the pickup location due to location construction but failed to notify me. I reserved a drop off location (anchorage airport) different than the pickup location but the lady at the pickup location then tried to charge me extra (over and above my reservation amount) to drop off at the airport which was shown on my reservation.. I ignored her "upcharge threats" and dropped off per my reservation details anyway. I will not rent from Enterprise in Anchorage again, it was not a pleasant experience
8.0 Excellent17 Aug 2020
Pros: The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.Cons: The standard SUV seems to be a misnomer. It was more like a compact suv or small wagon. It did not have enough room for us.
3.6 Mediocre12 Aug 2020
Pros: Drop off was easy, staff working that day was professional.Cons: Pick up staff was uninterested in every part of transaction. Original rental vehicle offered was unacceptable, only option they would offer is an up-sale to the next size (more money for enterprise). That vehicle interior was dirty which I could not believe in our current COVID environment however that was the only thing available. Staff could care less as long as I drove away and they could move on to next customer.
10.0 Excellent7 Aug 2020
Pros: Everything was smooth and fast.
10.0 Excellent24 Jul 2020
Pros: Yes. The staff members were all very nice and friendly.Cons: NOthing. We were helped quickly after we got there. The car was ready. Everything was clearly explained to us. Quick check out and check in.
10.0 Excellent21 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff was very helpful. Our flight was running late and it was getting close to closing time. They offered to deliver and wait for us to arrive.
10.0 Excellent2 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff here are exceptional - I don’t say that often. John, the manager went above and beyond to take care of me.

6.0 Good1 Mar 2021
Pros: Staff was really friendly. Car handled well in winter weather. Easy pick up and drop off.Cons: My rental felt overpriced — $175 for 26 hours and only used $5 worth of gas. Staff didn’t explain cost or meaning of other add ons, felt a little pushy. But I also recognize that that is their job!

9.6 Excellent4 Sep 2020
Pros: Efficient pick-up and drop-off. Friendly folks. Easy process. Good value for the money (my vehicle had 58 miles on the odometer!).Cons: Windshield interior had lots of schmears. Find a better product or better process for that.
10.0 Excellent31 Aug 2020
Pros: The staff was fantastic, and drop off was super easy - even at 4:15 a.m
9.2 Excellent31 Aug 2020
Pros: Clean vehicle, drove decently, great price.Cons: It needed new windshield wipers and maybe a windshield treatment for the Alaskan road construction.

8.0 Excellent27 Jun 2021
Pros: Pricing was ridiculous $300 per day for a mid-size SUV. Staff was ok not anything special, more concerned selling insurance and condition of vehicle . Make sure as a renter to mark down every blemish on vehicle and make sure an check the windshield for chips or cracks. Otherwise they will file claim if you don’t buy there insurance.Cons: They want to over change for everything. Asked about cost dropping a airport. In the past it was free, they quoted me $25 contract says $15 they still argued. Read the fine print be on guard…..
10.0 Excellent1 Jun 2021
Pros: Staff was excelllent, car was clean, and accommodations were great.Cons: I know it is market price but it was a lot of money for a 4 door blazer.
8.0 Excellent1 Jun 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off were easy, even though I used an off-airport office.Cons: None of the apps were set for navigation, etc. Due to COVID limited rental stock the cost was VERY high.
6.0 Good30 May 2021
Cons: A lot of hidden fee
8.0 Excellent2 May 2021
Cons: Could’ve been made clearer that the location isn’t at the airport. This was kind of a pain to deal with. It’s about a 10 mins drive outside the airport.
4.0 Okay28 Mar 2021
Pros: They fulfilled the shuttle ride to the airport.Cons: Our car smelled horrific. We could barely stand to be in it.
2.0 Mediocre10 Feb 2021
Pros: Dropping the car off the person checking the car in was very polite.Cons: When checking the car out the guy at the desk was extremely rude. He also said that the insurance you purchase through Kayak does not cover the car. I had to call and add insurance through my personal company before I could leave. I would also recommend putting winter tires on the vehicle when it’s being rented in Alaska during the winter.
10.0 Excellent16 Dec 2020
Pros: Easy out and return
9.6 Excellent17 Oct 2020
Pros: Front staff and the person who helped me do the inspection was greatCons: The front windshield wipers were shot. Need to be replaced. It was almost dangerous to drive when it was raining

10.0 Excellent18 Jul 2021
4.0 Okay2 Jul 2021
Pros: Staff was fine, Pickup and drop-off were easy.Cons: It was incredibly expensive at $300/day. We had no choice of vehicles and they gave us a large Toyota minivan when we would have preferred a small SUV. We dropped it off 5 hrs earler than we had planned to avoid another full days charge, which caused us to skip doing some of the things we wanted to do. It also necessitated a very long wait in the ticketing area of the airport before we could drop off our bags.
4.0 Okay26 Jun 2021
Pros: We got a vehicle.Cons: We did not get the vehicle we requested. The staff were unprofessional and rude. The employee who processed our rental charged us incorrectly by overcharging us $1400 which put a hold for that amount on our credit card. The $1400 that was being held on the card was supposed to be used for additional expenses on our trip. Without having those funds available Thrifty put us in a horrible position for paying for basic necessities on our vacation. In addition the employee who processed our rental provided incorrect information regarding the insurance available to purchase when renting a vehicle. He stated multiple times that there were three different packages we could purchase. He stated the amounts of each package and stated the insurance was all inclusive covering our rental for the time we had it rented. He did not mention that this was a daily charge. He then proceeded to grab my fiancé’s credit card out of his hand and input it into the machine. He did not tell us the final total and charged the card to $2600. Our rental was quoted at $1200. This was not the experience I expected from a simple vehicle rental to start the beginning of our vacation. We are very disappointed and will not be using Thrifty ever again.

4.0 Okay30 May 2021

3.2 Mediocre31 Oct 2020
Pros: The price would have been reasonable. The convenience of another rental company being right next store with better policies. The ease of penalty free cancelation.Cons: Be more like the rest of the world and not require a copy of my insurance when its in my car 200 miles away. I had endured this once before. I got in and was ready to go only to learn I couldn't rent the car because you needed a copy of my insurance. A first in all my years of renting cars. I couldnt recall which company that was at the time of this reservation so to avoid that issue happening again. After making my reservation. I called to make sure. And was told nope. As long as your using a major credit card, which is consistent with the rest of the world, you should be fine. So, I show up only to have that contradicted. And Im told oh everyone here knows that. Well ..... apparently everyone does not. And I took my business down a few counters where they don't require that. I was also told yah if your a resident we need proof but if non resident. We don't. What? The seems backwards but hey.I have a credit card with coverage. And two auto polices that cover rentals. But other than a company offering me coverage for a fee. Ive never had to provide proof. All over the country. Last time I had to get picked up and driven across town and dig my vehicle out to get my card. And come back etc. Huge delays to my arrival plans. Ridiculous and unacceptable. You guys need to get on the same page. And get WiFi so people can use there phone or laptop to access emails to retrieve a copy if they can successfully get one emailed to them after hours.
9.6 Excellent22 Jul 2020
Pros: Great value for money. No "hidden fees".Cons: Their phone-based customer service. It takes hours, literally, for them to pick the phone at the airport location. If you select any other option, it takes you to a Thrifty's call center in the Philippines, where they cannot access your reservation (because the Anchorage airport location is a Thrifty's franchisee location).

Top tips for renting a car in Anchorage

  • Renting a car is by far the best option for travelers looking to explore the vast Alaskan landscapes that lay just short drives away from Anchorage. Driving is the best way to get to nearby places that are a must-see for everyone visiting Alaska, including the Chugach Mountains area with its hundreds of miles of wilderness trails. Some of the main access points in Chugach State Park are located 20 minutes away from downtown Anchorage. There are also 60 glaciers within 50 miles of the city, which means a car provides the comfort of defining your own route and hopping on and off whenever desired.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC), which is just 5 miles away from the city. Car hire services can be found in the new hire Car Center, which is across from the South Terminal. The airport provides free shuttle buses every 15 minutes between the South Terminal, the North Terminal, and the hire Car Center.
  • The roads in Anchorage are well-kept throughout the whole year, which means no chains are required even when it snows. However, be extra careful during the winter, as accidents are more likely to happen in tougher weather conditions. Moose also like to roam around freely, which means extra care is needed, particularly at night.
  • Traffic is not usually a huge problem in the city of Anchorage. However, if there are any special events taking place over the weekend, both Glenn Highway heading north and the Seward Hwy road heading south can experience congestion. On weekdays, avoid driving into or out of the city between 7:30 and 9 a.m., and 4 to 6 p.m, especially through the Glenn Highway. Fresh snow can also slow down traffic even more.
