KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Whittier

  • Whittier is a picturesque town surrounded by stunning landscapes and natural wonders. Car rentals in Whittier allow you to explore the area's beauty and visit various attractions, such as Portage Glacier, Whittier Harbor, Begich Towers, and the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel. With very little in the way of public transportation to get you around town, rental cars become the most convenient and cost-effective choice for exploring in this part of the world.
  • Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) is the ideal option for those looking to pick up Whittier car rentals from an airport. Approximately nine rental companies operate here, all conveniently situated in the Rental Car Center across from the South Terminal. To access the Rental Car Center, free airport shuttle buses run between the South Terminal, North Terminal, and the Rental Car Center every 15 minutes, operating continuously throughout the day and night.
  • Visitors driving car rentals in Whittier can experience unique and unforgettable aspects of this vast and beautiful state. Alaska is home to diverse wildlife, including moose, bears, eagles, whales, and more. Driving through certain areas may provide opportunities to spot these magnificent creatures in their natural habitats. If visiting during the summer, you'll experience the midnight sun phenomenon. The sun remains above the horizon for nearly 24 h, allowing for extended daylight driving and unique outdoor adventures. While Alaska's scenic drives are awe-inspiring, some roads can be rugged and challenging, especially in less populated regions. Be prepared for gravel roads, potholes, and changing weather conditions.
  • Whittier is a small town with limited road access, and driving times are generally not subject to significant traffic congestion like in larger cities. During the cruise ship season, which typically runs from late spring to early fall, increased activity may occur around the port area as cruise ships arrive and depart. Whittier is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer when visitors explore the scenic beauty of Prince William Sound and nearby attractions. As a result, you may encounter more vehicles and tourists during peak travel times.
  • Book your car hire in Whittier at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Premium hire cars in Whittier are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Car pick up and drop off were both very easy. We turned the car in three days early (due to a death in the family). I was told we will be credited back the remaining days. Assuming this happens I'm VERY satisfied. If this does not happen, I will be very disappointed.

Cons:

They gave away our car. We got a deal through Kayak. I guess they did not want to honor the deal so they rented our car to someone else for twice the price. As a result I would never use Enterprise car rental or Kayak again!

Pros:

Several employees at counter carried in personal conversations using curse words (unprofessional). First car had a flat tire, second car did not have full tank of gas. Enterprise off airport where I was suppose to pick up car had already closed so got car at airport. Was never informed the rate would be 300 plus dollars more per month.

Cons:

With regards to reservation, should have been j formed I could turn car in next day and pick up original car offsite which was substantially lower in cost.

Cons:

Enterprise switched the pickup location due to location construction but failed to notify me. I reserved a drop off location (anchorage airport) different than the pickup location but the lady at the pickup location then tried to charge me extra (over and above my reservation amount) to drop off at the airport which was shown on my reservation.. I ignored her "upcharge threats" and dropped off per my reservation details anyway. I will not rent from Enterprise in Anchorage again, it was not a pleasant experience

Pros:

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Cons:

The standard SUV seems to be a misnomer. It was more like a compact suv or small wagon. It did not have enough room for us.

Pros:

Drop off was easy, staff working that day was professional.

Cons:

Pick up staff was uninterested in every part of transaction. Original rental vehicle offered was unacceptable, only option they would offer is an up-sale to the next size (more money for enterprise). That vehicle interior was dirty which I could not believe in our current COVID environment however that was the only thing available. Staff could care less as long as I drove away and they could move on to next customer.
