KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Juneau

  • There’s so much to see in and around Juneau that if you want complete freedom and convenience, you should rent a car. Juneau car rentals are popular because most people come to the city to explore the surrounding nature. Public transport is available, but the hours of operation and time between pickups can be inconvenient, so check out car rentals in Juneau instead. In addition, you’ll be able to easily access attractions outside the city, like the Tongass National Forest and Roberts Peak, with a rental car.
  • Car rentals in Juneau are easily accessible right from the Juneau International Airport (JNU). There are multiple car rental companies at the airport located on the first floor of the terminal near the check-in counters. There are also several car rental companies that will pick you up from the airport and take you to their office off-site.
  • Driving in Juneau is fairly stress-free. There are just a couple of things to look out for. Juneau is famous for its wildlife, and it’s common for deer or other animals, such as porcupines, to wander near the roads. Be attentive so you can avoid mishaps with wildlife. Some Juneau natives tend to not use turn signals sometimes, so pay attention to your fellow drivers, as well.
  • Alaska Route 7, or AK-7 to the locals, is the main road in Juneau, stretching through the whole city. It’s hard to get lost here, as the main road has offshoots and several highways, and Juneau is so scenic that you’ll always be able to pick out a landmark. Morning rush hour in Juneau is typically between 7am and 8am and evening rush hour is from 5pm to 6pm, so if you’re looking to get somewhere in a hurry, avoid driving during these times.
  • Book your rental car in Juneau at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Juneau are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

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.

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

Jul 2017

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.
