Important information about Fairbanks car rentals

A trip to Alaska would almost be incomplete if you didn’t stop by some of the most iconic attractions in the city, such as the Aurora Ice Museum and Running Reindeer Ranch. This is why you need to get car rentals in Fairbanks. That way, you’ll be able to navigate through Richardson Highway as well as the Johansen Expressway which are the two major roads connecting major parts of Fairbanks. The best part is, these roads rarely have heavy traffic unless the weather is terrible, so you don’t have to worry about delays on the road in your luxury car rental in Fairbanks. Even if you’re visiting the city on a budget, finding a cheap car rental in Fairbanks should be a fairly easy task because there are over 20 rental car locations all over town, including companies with passenger van rental options if you’re in a big group.

Getting around Fairbanks without a car is quite difficult as the walkability in some areas of the city center is decent while others have no pedestrian lanes. If you have Fairbanks car rentals, you will be able to move around the city with so much ease and can even take a trip to see some dogsled and fishing tours in the neighboring Cantwell, which is just over an hour drive. On the issue of parking, that shouldn’t be much of a bother to you because there are plenty of parking spaces all around Fairbanks. While most of the street parking spaces are usually metered and others reserved for local homeowners and commercial areas, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a parking lot to leave your car rentals in Fairbanks.

Before getting rental cars in Fairbanks, you should familiarize yourself with some of the unique driving laws in the city to avoid carrying back a ticket as a souvenir for your trip. One important law you should know is the fact that drivers are supposed to keep their headlights on for a little longer, especially during the winter months, to maintain visibility. Also, the speed limits are reasonably lower compared to other states in the US. Speeding at any point is reason enough for you to be pulled over and handed a ticket, so be sure to adhere to the limits.

For you to be able to get car rentals in Fairbanks, you will need to show a valid driver’s license with a photo ID. The license doesn’t have to be issued by the state of Alaska and can be from anywhere in the United States or Canada. For drivers outside the US and Canada, a license from your home country should also be enough, provided it is written in the Roman alphabet. Otherwise, you will have to produce an international driving permit.
