Top tips for hiring a car at Whitehorse airport

  • Getting a car rental at Whitehorse Airport offers numerous benefits, whether you’re visiting Whitehorse for leisure or business. You don’t have to spend hours at the airport waiting for public transportation. With a car rental, you can drive to various places in Whitehorse and the Yukon Territory that are inaccessible by public transport. You’ll enjoy the convenience of stopping wherever you need and traveling with a lot of luggage, which is uncommon when using public transport. Car rentals are also cheaper when you compare the total costs of hiring a taxi.
  • Collecting a car rental at Whitehorse Airport is generally easy, whether you’ve booked online or are renting from the airport. All you have to do is head to your preferred rental provider’s desk with the necessary documentation. You should confirm the requirements when booking or from your preferred provider’s website since they usually differ from one company to another. After presenting the required documentation and signing the rental agreement, you’ll be escorted to the pickup area outside the main Terminal. Ensure the car is in the perfect technical state before starting your trip.
  • Returning a car rental at Whitehorse Airport is as easy as collecting it. Different providers have designated drop-off points at the airport. You can confirm this in your rental agreement. As you approach the airport, you’ll see signs directing you to the parking lots, where you’ll find your company’s designated drop-off point. Budget Car Rental has a simplified drop-off service, with a dedicated drop-off area at Whitehorse Airport outside the Main Terminal where you can park your car and return the keys to a dedicated drop-off box. After parking the vehicle, collect all your items, check the fuel level, and ensure the car is in the right state before proceeding to the car rental desks to finalize the rental process.
  • Picking up or dropping off a Whitehorse Airport car rental can be difficult during certain times of the year, especially the peak travel period from May to July, when the Yukon Territory gets around 21 hours of sunlight. During this season, you’ll encounter long waits or queues at the airport’s car rental section. Whitehorse Airport can also get busy on Saturdays and Sundays since the city is a preferred weekend getaway for many. You’ll experience slight challenges picking up or dropping off your rental car at the airport during this period. You may encounter similar queues at the car rental counter during popular festivals in the city, like Adaka Cultural Festival and Paradise Music Festival.
  • Book your car hire at Whitehorse airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Excellent! Staff at airport (Pauli) was efficient and helpful. Car was spotless. We had to put down an extra $200 as a retainer in case we didn't fuel up car or we put too many miles on it. I expect to get that $200 back. I'll check my credit card statement on a day or two. I would recommend Driving Force.

Instruction given to collect car key is very clear. Professional services. We are given a new car and also is what we have booked. But just that there is a message on the car dashboard “need servicing”. Thank you Driving Force.

Fast check-in. Helpful customer service agent, who clearly explains features and limitations. Clean car. Everything was great. Even though I had never heard of Driving Force (nor how their business was being brokered by Rentalcars.com), everything ended up being just as straightforward as one of the major rental car agencies.

Hit with extra fees upon pick up even though rental was already fully paid for. Upon drop off more fees again. Nothing related to damage or late fees, purely extra fees and taxes. Ended up being twice the cost of what I originally paid for in full.

Double the charges compared with the booing online. Still negotiate with rental company. I suspected the price quoted online is a scam.

A bit of a line up. A small operation with 4 cruise ships in town. Car, and information given was great. I highly recommend driving to Whitehorse if you have at least 8 or 9 hours.( can be done in 7 hours) Very scenic drive.

What's not to like? The car was ready when I arrived, and I was on the road in minutes. The staff were very good. This is the place to rent a car in Skagway AK!

Pros:

Good selection of cars, quality of available vehicle overall is excellent. Onsite personnel are friendly, helpful and professional.

Cons:

Somewhat pricey, but in Skagway, AL (pop 1057 as of 2015), they are pretty much the only game in town, as far as I know. Office could be a bit more spacious.

Pros:

Everything was great. The car was clean, filled with gas and ready to go when we arrived. Paperwork was handled quickly and efficiently and I appreciated the emails I received prior to pick-up confirming the AVIS location. We were fortunate in that it was a slow day for AVIS -- I was informed that the next three days they were sold out which would certainly affect the pick-up experience. Good value for Skagway, but expensive by lower-48 standards!

20 minute walk from the cruise ship. Easy pick up and drop off. Gas pump right across the street (the only one in town :) )
