Alaska car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Alaska?

Depending on the season you are travelling in and what our specific Alaskan plans are, generally the main roads are very well maintained and any reliable cheap car hire will get you around. Be prepared in winter that you come across heavy fog, ice and snow, so ensure that you check for local updates in case any roads that are on your itinerary have been closed or are under maintenance, and also be aware that some areas don’t have reliable mobile network coverage. If you are planning to head to remote areas off the main roads, you may find that these roads are either unsealed or not maintained regularly so drive slowly and carefully, and be prepared with a backup plan for your car rentals in Alaska.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in the United States?

The main difference that can take adjustment for those doing it for the first time is that your car rental in Alaska will have the driver’s seat on the opposite side of the vehicle. Alaska’s roads drive on the opposite side to the UK, and this takes a moment to get used to. Headlights are also required for long periods of time during winter months, though certain roads do require them all year round so be sure to check with the local motor vehicle department to be across the laws and any updates to them for the specific areas you are travelling to within Alaska. Speed limits across Alaska are also generally lower than many other states or cities, so do be sure to pay attention to speed limits signs and your actual speed to avoid adding fines to your travel budget.

What documents do I need to hire a car in the United States?

You will need to provide your driver’s license, a secondary form of photo identification such as your passport, and your credit card. Your driver’s license must be valid and be a full type held for at least one full year, and there is a minimum age requirement of 21 plus an additional young driver fee applied by most providers for those booking car rental under the age of 25.
