Car rental woes? Check

In Alaska Travelgram by scott is a peer-to-peer car rental app

There’s a nationwide car rental shortage, in case you haven’t noticed. If you can’t find a car, check with, the car rental app that connects you with private owners.

I first heard of a couple of years ago. But given today’s acute car rental shortage, it’s worth another look, whether you’re looking for a car in Anchorage, Honolulu, Seattle or Salt Lake City.

Check terms and conditions when you’re looking at the cars. Here’s a screenshot for Anchorage:

Not all cars are unlimited mileage. No one-way rentals are permitted. You can cancel your reservation without a fee up to 24 hours prior to your pick-up time. Some rentals are available for airport pickup. Just check out the website, enter your dates and scroll through the options.

Here in Alaska, I found was available in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Homer and Kodiak. There are options at almost every major airport in the Lower 48.

There’s a link on the website if you want to sign up as a host and rent your car to visitors.
