Renting with A-1

Advance reservations are strongly suggested especially in the summertime. Vehicles may be reserved by category only and A-1 has the right to substitute a similar or larger vehicle at no additional charge if the reserved vehicle category is not available at the time of check out.


Rates do not include any airport imposed fees, LDW (loss Damage Waiver’s), infant seats, or additional driver charges. We allow one additional driver for free and the cost is $5.00 per day, per driver, for any additional drivers.

Rental & Age Requirements

Renters need to have their own full coverage automobile insurance policy which covers rental vehicles.

Minimum rental age is 21 years old. All drivers must have a valid U.S, International Driver’s License, or a valid license from their home country. The primary driver and credit card holder has to be issued in the same person’s name, meaning person (A) can’t use person (B) credit card to rent a car.

Alaska law requires proof of insurance to be carried on drivers at all times.

Another coverage we offer is chip windshield protection (CWP) at a rate of $3.00 per day. This coverage protects you from repairing or replacing windshields. This insurance comes highly recommended as the summers in Alaska have a great deal of road construction taking place all over the state in addition to the large amount of gravel that is placed on the roads in the winter.

If you decline the chip windshield protection we charge $40.00 per chip if fixable and $300.00 to replace the windshield if the damage is beyond repair.
