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.
