KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Skagway

  • Car rentals in Skagway are the best option for exploring this small Alaskan town. Since there are no public transportation options, having a car is vital to enjoying the beauty of Alaska. Driving gives you the opportunity to explore the natural beauty and scenic routes in the area, like Alaska’s Marine Highway. You will also have easy access to attractions like White Pass Summit and Haines State Forest. Having a Skagway car rental will ensure that you have convenience and flexibility when planning your trip.
  • Skagway car rentals are all located within the town, which is close to both the airport and the cruise port. If you’re arriving by plane, you will be at the Skagway Regional Airport (SGY). Drive About Car Rental and Affordable Car Rental are the agencies closest to the airport. When you arrive at the airport, call the agency for a free shuttle to the rental desk. Because of the limited number of agencies, car rentals in Skagway should be booked ahead of time. You may also choose to fly into Juneau International Airport (JNU). Here, you will have more options. Enterprise, Hertz, Avis, and Alamo all have locations directly inside the airport.
  • Weather in Skagway can be unpredictable, especially in the winter months, so it’s good to be prepared with emergency supplies in your Skagway car rental. You can purchase this yourself or ask the rental agency. You might not encounter too much traffic while driving car rentals in Skagway, but moose and other wildlife are common. Watch for animals near or in the road. As you explore the small towns and natural beauty, there will be limited fuel stations, so be sure to fuel up when you have the chance.
  • Driving car rentals in Skagway can be challenging due to its unique location and weather conditions. There are some narrow and winding roads, which can be intimidating for young or inexperienced drivers, especially in winter conditions. Wildlife, like moose, is common in the area. Use extra caution and awareness when driving your Skagway car rental, especially at night. Limited visibility, unpredictable weather, and a lack of nearby service stations also add to the difficulties driving in this area. However, with some preparation and awareness, you’ll be treated to some breathtaking landscapes.
  • Book your car hire in Skagway at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Some attractions and tour operators offer parking for their visitors. Limited on-street parking is available throughout the town, but be mindful of any restrictions.

Over the three months that I rented fron Avis two vehicles had to be traded for oil changes, one for battery problems and one for tire problems. The fifth one lasted the longest. The staff at Juneau Airport were really good. Although I had problems, I would rent from Avis again.

Pros:

Original staff was good, but went back to speak with the manager and she was the rudest person I’ve dealt with. Our family will be avoiding the company because of her.

Cons:

Manager could not have such an attitude over a suggestion to improve quality of service.

KAYAK

Pros:

The pickup/dropoff was so easy, partly because I was the only customer at any of the counters. The agents were pleasant and helpful. The car (Ford Focus) was adequate for the class of car we chose.

Cons:

The price seemed high compared to other rentals we've had over the years in other places. Could be because everything in Juneau is expensive. It was the least expensive of the options in Juneau, and was adequate for our needs. There's not a lot of distance to cover around there, so fitting 5 adults into a Ford Focus worked for us this time.

KAYAK

Pros:

Incredibly easy pickup with no up-sell. I was in the car almost as fast as I could have stepped in a taxi.

Cons:

There are no negatives on the Alamo side. However, for some reason Kayak lists this vendor as being reached by a shuttle. It's not--you get your key by baggage claim and go a few steps to your car in the adjacent parking lot.
