Pros:

Pick up and drop off were quick and convenient. It was a quick walk to the lot.

Cons:

We liked the Honda CRV but the gas tank was small (12 gallons) for the amount of driving we did. We were stopping almost daily to fill up and in Alaska that requires some planning.

First experience renting a vehicle. Had good gas mileage and the staff was very helpful

Cons:

6.0 Good

Mar. 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

The operational safety of the vehicle could have been better. The vehicle had very poor traction on the icy roads and had a lot of previous damage not noted before driving away from the lot. The alignment of the vehicle was not nearly 100%, but drivable for someone familiar with the roads in Fairbanks during the winter. Overall, I suggest checking the alignment before future rental.

8.0 Excellent

Dec. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff is very friendly and quick. The pickup/dropoff is outdoors and Dollar is furthest away, Dropping off with bags can be a pain since you have to go in the terminal to get a cart first, sometimes staff will pull the car up to the curb if they aren't too busy. they did it for me twice.

Cons:

Just the parking situation but being Fairbanks Alaska, most things are rustic which should be expected.

Pros:

Pick up and drop off were smooth, quality, clean vehicles.

Cons:

There were two unreported scratches (one was 12" long) on the vehicle so a few minutes were spent running back into the booth to make sure they knew about them before I drove the car away.

Pros:

Fast, easy, great customer service. No cars available in the class I had reserved. Free upgrade to 4x4 truck which gave great peace of mind going to and from Chena as well as our remote rental cabin. Simple pick up and drop off. Came with extension cord for block heater. Life saver in cold winter temps. 10/10 would rent again.

Pros:

Arrived late to find the counter closed. There was a 4 people who had paid for the rental through a third party and had no way to pick up the car. The employees at the other car rental agency's informed us this happens every night. Had to rent a car from another company. I am letting my place of employment work out the issue with paying for a car that was not available for pick up. They knew the plane was late the counter is located in a small airport with two baggage claims. The ticket counter is located by the baggage claim. Someone could have waited the 15 extra minutes to help costumers who had pre paid for a car.

1.9 Horrible

Jul. 2021

KAYAK
Did not receive the class of car I reserved, and the vehicle was in poor shape. Budget refused to make things right, once again. I still had to pay for an SUV even though I was downgraded to a smaller vehicle.

1.9 Horrible

Jul. 2021

KAYAK
I reserved a mid-size SUV but when I arrived at the pickup counter, only a compact car was available. Budget refused to adjust the price accordingly, and I was still charged for the SUV. The car I received was dirty, contained garbage (including a used mask!) from the previous user, and had a warning light / notification that I had to look at all week. The tires were also pretty worn out which made driving in the rain precarious. This will be my last time renting with Budget, because I always end up having an issue with my rental, and they are never willing to make things right.

Pros:

The drop off was delightful, but the pickup was not great. The car was clean and filled with gas and easy to take off!

Cons:

The person running the counter seemed annoyed to be working and was so brief with us that we didn't exactly know what was needed from us when it came to inspecting the car and how to return it. When I had some questions about what I was signing off on, the lady was brief and laughed that I even had questions. It was frustrating and rude. Everyone working at Anchorage was fantastic!

Mar. 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

They said they don't even stock the car (or even the brand of car) I booked, so they gave me a different one, which other companies were offering for less money. I told them this was a bait and switch and asked if they could give a discount, since I would have gone with their competitors at the lower rate. They required me to prove that the car I booked was what I claimed, since they apparently don't have any record on their side of the car. After I proved the booking and requested a manager, they provided discount, which is fair, but this experience shouldn't happen.

Cons:

My reservation did not work. Hertz did not have any cars available even though Kayak decided they would book my reservation anyway and make me think I had a car. I had planned for 22/day which was the rate I was given. Instead I was forced to use the only car agency that had a car available and it cost me 5x as much. $110. I will never use kayak again and I will strongly recommend others use a different site to compare rates or book. Since kayak is useless if it can’t actually book my reservation properly. It’s -20F in Alaska , that’s where I am. And I was forced to overpay for a rental, in any other situation I would have walked but sadly my hands were tied in this situation. 0/5 very poor quality site and poor quality service. I recommend people do not use this site any chance I can now. Which is often since I work in Customer Service and Tourism.

Top tips for renting a car in Fairbanks

  • Like many cities in the United States, Fairbanks was designed with the automobile in mind. Visitors to the city find they have a much easier time navigating the city via personal vehicle than with public transport. Say, for example, you would like to visit the Museum of the North during your time in Fairbanks: what would be a simple 6-mile drive of 15 minutes requires 30 or 40 minutes on the bus.
  • Are you planning on picking up your rental car upon arriving in Fairbanks? Travelers with flights landing at Fairbanks International Airport will find the rental car desks in the main terminal’s Arrivals Hall.
  • Visiting Fairbanks in the winter? If so, you should definitely be prepared for snowy weather. Fairbanks can experience some serious powder during the peak of the winter season -- and drivers will want to be mindful of this when visiting the city. When inclimate weather hits, just make sure to drive a bit slower and remember that cars take longer to slow down in snow.
  • Fairbanks, luckily for visitors and commuters, does not experience severe congestion. In general, the morning rush hour picks up shortly after 7:00 a.m. and cools down by around 9:00 a.m., while in the afternoon the rush hour starts up again at around 4:00 p.m. and clears out by around 6:00 p.m. In terms of roads to avoid during rush hour traffic, University Avenue and Geist Road are two that get the busiest and most congested during peak driving hours.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Fairbanks for C$ 103 or less
  • Book your rental car in Fairbanks at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Fairbanks are around 77% cheaper than other car types, on average
