Alaska Guide


Alaska is the most northerly located state in the USA and is known for its vast untouched, stunningly beautiful landscapes. The region has a considerably low population making it popular with the more adventourous tourists. It's covered with forests, lakes, mountains and tundra, and it is a popular tourist destination for people from around the world.

Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage, and its capital Juneau, offer a range of cultural destinations. Anchorage’s Museum of History and Art has a collection featuring artists from around the world, and its Native Museum contains historical artifacts and information on Alaska’s native peoples. Juneau, the capital, contains the St. Nicolas Russian Orthodox Church, a stunning reminder of Alaska’s pre-American Russian history.

There are almost infinite opportunities for outdoor adventure in Alaska. Main attractions include Mount McKinley and the Glacier Bay National Park where there are opportunities for many outdoor activities, the most popular being hiking and skiing. If you like relaxing then fishing might be more appealing.  Around Alaska there is much opportunity for camping, but if you are looking for good restaurants, bars and hotels, Anchorage and Juneau are your best bets.

You need a car to get almost anywhere in Alaska, and only small aircraft can reach some places. Pilots and planes can be hired in most cities.

Flights can be gotten to Anchorage and Juneau from many cities in the United States and Canada.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
