Car Rental

This is the new version of the Alaska Teacher Placement (ATP) forum for teachers, education majors, and school administrators to discuss working and living in the state of Alaska. Those considering an Alaskan job, or considering a new Alaskan education job ask questions, and those with information and/or opinions provide answers. Although many users are teacher or principal candidates from the Lower 48, a large number of current and former school district HR and school administrators subscribe.

Moderators: Johncn, Betty Walters, Toni McFadden, Damon Hargraves

We arrive into Anchorage on July 22. We fly to Atqasuk on July 25th. We are using these days in Anchorage to get our supplies/food. We are looking to rent a car, but everything around the airport is sold out. Any suggestions for transportation ???????

We...How old is everyone?
It has been mentioned renting UHaul van before for $20 a day. Not a bad idea. Only problem is you would be limited on seating. I've looked into this option, but have always declined since I normally have the whole family in the summer.

Another idea is find a hotel close to one of the shopping locations. Diamond Center is a nice hotel and you might be able to get by without a vehicle. There is public transportation as well as getting a cab. Just limit your shopping runs.

Change your date. I just went to orbitz and was able to get a car on the 23 and return on the 24th or 25th.

tnuts,

I just sent you an email to see if I can help you get around Anchorage if you are not familiar with the city.
