AVIS: Drive, Baby, Drive!

In Adventure, Alaska Travelgram, Consumer, Travel Deals by scott


If you need to rent a car in Anchorage or Fairbanks during April and May–Avis can save you a bundle. Rates start at $17 per day for a subcompact (Toyota Yaris of similar, pictured, right).217260

IMPORTANT: You cannot book this rate online at the Avis website. YOU HAVE TO CALL (retro, right???). In Anchorage, the BEST DEAL is at Avis’s downtown location at 5th and B St. Heck, they even have free  appetizer cards at  Sullivan’s (across the street). The card says you have to buy an entree to get the free appetizer. UNTRUE, says the local manager. So stand firm with your coupon! Double-check when you pick up your car.

Remember, it costs you $7 more PER DAY to rent a car at the Anchorage airport. DOWNTOWN is the best deal.

In Fairbanks, renters get a 2-for-1 lunch at Pike’s Landing. 

Here are the rates, the reservations numbers and the fine print:

Subcompact: $17/day + taxes and fees
Compact: $20/day + taxes and fees
Midsize: $23/day + taxes and fees
Fullsize: $26/day + taxes and fees

The fine print: Renters must meet Avis’ standard rental requirements – at least 21 years of age, present a valid drivers license and a valid major credit card in their name (no debit cards). Rates are valid from April 1, 2015 through May 31, 2015 and will not be extended after May 31, 2015, and are not combinable with any other discounts or coupons. Vehicles must be rented/returned to renting location.
