KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ketchikan

  • Visiting Ketchikan is an exciting experience because you finally gain the privilege to adventure its top attractions. However, that excitement can suddenly come to a haul if you don't have a convenient means to get to these places. Ketchikan has several top attractions, including Deer Mountain Trail, Rotary Beach, The Rock, and Chief Johnson Totem Pole. Ketchikan car rentals offer the most convenient and reliable way to get to these places with little hassle. For instance, Totem Bright State Historical Park is 9.8 miles from the city center. If you want to sightsee, you can get there conveniently via car.
  • If you're flying into Ketchikan, you'll land at Ketchikan International Airport (KTN), 4 miles from the city center. There are multiple car rental agencies at the KTN, so take advantage and get your car from your preferred company. All car rental companies are within the terminal and a short walk to the car lot. The rental companies include Enterprise, Easirent, E-Z Rent-A-Car, Budget, and National. Booking your Ketchikan car rentals online with KAYAK saves you the hassle of queueing at the rental counters.
  • When driving your car rental in Ketchikan, you'll likely encounter jaywalkers because pedestrians crossing the road when it's unsafe is a common practice. Therefore, be keen to avoid getting into an accident. Another possible obstacle when driving your Ketchikan car rentals is bikers who often disobey traffic light rules or hoot immediately after the traffic light signals change. Also, slow down when approaching build-up areas and roundabouts.
  • Like other cities in Alaska, Ketchikan experiences significant traffic delays worth escaping. The typical weekdays rush hours begin from 7:30 am to 9 am. The evening rush hours start from 4 pm to 6 pm. Avoid being on the road during these hours because the dense traffic can cause concerning delays. Plan your routes well and avoid congested areas like commuter zones as they are brimming with cars and human traffic. Avoid narrow streets during rush hours, such as D-1 Loop Road, Alderwood Street, and Bear Berry Lane N.
  • Book your car hire in Ketchikan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Ketchikan are around -40% cheaper than other car types, on average

The process for pickup and drop off was very smooth. The car was spotlessly clean and drove well. The attendants explained the ferry situation clearly which made the whole trip much less stressful. Would definitely book through Kayak and Budget in Ketchikan again.

Pros:

Everything was close by and without hassle. I wanted to save a bit of money so reserved the smallest car I could even though there were 4 of us, and three are 6 foot or taller. They gave us a Suzuki hatchback and it was great. Lots of head room and leg room and very comfortable.

Cons:

The car was a little dirty. I think that's an Alaska thing. We found a sock in the back. Also something we did not know was the high price of the 5 minute ferry ride from airport to Ketchikan. Not the car rental company's fault, but a sticker shock for sure. $70 for 4 people and a car.

Pros:

Car was adequate

Cons:

In one word, pick-up was HORRENDOUS! After making the initial reservation, the email confirmation I received and printed off stated "off airport" pick-up. In Ketchikan, AK there is a ferry that runs every 1/2 hour to/from airport/city side. Made my way down to the ferry terminal after picking up my luggage just as it pulled away, so waited 1/2 hour to catch ferry from airport to city side. Upon arriving on the city side, I contacted EZ Car Rental to let them know I was there and they said they'd send a van right over to pick me up...had to call again after 20 minutes and no van, which finally arrived another 10 minutes after that. Driver confirmed my name for pick-up...only problem was I wasn't the party he expected to pick-up. After providing my name, he called the office and I was told my pick-up was on the airport side! I showed driver my email confirmation that specifically stated "off airport" pick-up, and he didn't have an answer. Made my way back to the ferry terminal with my luggage just as it was pulling away, so had to wait another 1/2 hour for the next ferry! Finally arrived on the airport side only to find there was nobody at the EZ Car Rental counter! Made several calls to the Ketchikan office and each time was told they're trying to contact the employee that was supposed to be there. The gentleman at the next door Budget counter was very helpful and made several unsuccessful attempts via cell phone and text to contact the EZ rental employee. Finally, after a 45 minute wait, the employee showed...by this time I was livid, and the employee was very apologetic and provided a minor discount upon my demand. Once I finally got to the car (tank only 3/4 full), and loaded my luggage, I made my way to the ferry terminal...just as it pulled away. So had to wait another 1/2 hour for the next one! Are you serious?!?!? Had the email confirmation correctly stated that the car pick-up was on the airport side, I would've just picked up my luggage, walked over to the counter and been merrily on my way with no delay. Instead, it ended up being a three hour pick-up fiasco! Come on EZ Car Rental, get your act together if you want to have ANY chance to successfully compete against the big boy car rental agencies! Keep up this level of service and you'll warrant a name change from "EZ" Car Rental to Nightmare Car Rental!

Pros:

This 2016 Mazda 3 SUV was a dream, to drive. Maybe, it is because most of my vehicles were trucks and big rigs like diesel pushers. Though I do not know what the possible final price, the original written agreed on price was attractive. I was very fortunate being a day late to even able to have this rental.

Cons:

The dear lady agent was a little fuzzy on the start instruction. Like none. Though, being somewhat hearing impaired, maybe, I did not hear her. This was a keyless car which the manual did not seem to be very clear. Once, I called her on the phone, the instruction was not only simple but straightforward.
