I know this may seem like a silly question, but, if my husband and I rent a car at the end of our trip to drive from Anchorage to Vancouver for our return flight home, where do we pick-up/drop-off the car in either location. Will we have to take a taxi from ship to Hertz? I am assuming(maybe incorrectly) that there will be an airport drop-off in Vancouver. Also, from what I have read, the trip takes at minimum 5 hours or so, barring any sightseeing stops. Thanks for anyone's help - this is our first cruise and first trip to Alaska and I really want to have all my ducks in a row!
Jana, you've been misinformed. The drive from Anchorage to Vancouver, via the Alaska Highway, takes around 4 DAYS if you push it (around 2300 miles). I doubt there's a rental company that would allow their cars to travel the Alcan or the Yellowhead, but for sure the drop charge would be horrendous.
Pick up for cars- Seward- less than a 1/2 mile from the ship, can walk but shuttles available, return for Hertz is at the Anchorage airport. I'm hopeful your Anchorage- Vancouver drive is a misprint????
