Location information for Anchorage

Introduction

Anchorage was built in 1914 for the construction of the Alaska Railroad. In 1964 the city was hit by a big earthquake. Therefore, there aren't many old buildings. Except for some museums the city has little to offer, but its surroundings do. Anchorage is mainly a supply point and gateway to rugged Alaska.

Population

Anchorage has almost 300,000 inhabitants, this means almost half of Alaska´s population.

Location

The city is in the south of Alaska, on the Cook Inlet, a deep inlet of the Pacific. Anchorage is just a little more north than Oslo, but not by far as far north as Iceland's capital Reykjavik. East of the city are the Chugach Mountains and north are the mountains of the Alaska Range. When the weather is clear you can see the snowcapped peak of Mount McKinley (6194 m).

Because of its northerly location, winters in Anchorage are strong and summers relatively cold (between 11 and 19 degrees Celsius in July).

Economy

The local economy is based on five pillars: oil and gas, military, transport, public administration and tourism. Although oil and gas extraction takes place at great distance, the oil and gas companies have their offices in Anchorage. Other than that there are no less than three large military bases near the airport. The airport is an important hub for cargo transport between Asia and North-America. A large proportion of Alaska's goods are imported through the port. Although Juneau is the capital of Alaska, there are more officials living and working in Anchorage. Furthermore, the city is the gateway to the rest of Alaska: Anchorage welcomes about four million travelers annually.

Airports

The city's airport is located about seven kilometers south west of the city center. Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is easily accessible by rental car. The airport is on the International Airport Road, which connects to Minnesota Drive. The route to the airport is clearly indicated on road signs.

Public transport

Anchorage's bus system is called PeopleMover. On most lines there is only one bus per hour in both directions. Also, drivers often do not follow the official timetable.

Traffic and Parking

Except for the city center, Anchorage is a wide stretched city. Therefore, a rental car is an ideal means of transport. The streets going from north to south are called Avenue (starting with First Avenue in the north), the east west connections are called Street (starting with A Street). Thanks to this system it is not difficult to determine your position in Anchorage.

Most people rent a car to explore the city's surroundings. Please be aware that the roads are often damaged due to the harsh winter weather.

Hotels

Anchorage has a wide range of hotels in every price range. Therefore, it is not difficult to find suitable accommodation outside the high season. Most tourists stay in hotels near the Museum of History and Art. Outside Anchorage, in the Mat-Su Valley, there are many chalets, cabins, resorts and motels. If you would like to go to Alaska in summer, we recommend booking your hotel room in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
