Default Car Rental: Anchorage to Vancouver

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.

Default Are your cities correct?

The ships usually dock in Seward. Planes leave from Anchorage, which could be stretched to a five hour ride with sightseeing. Is this what you really mean?

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????

I think you have been misguided,You may contact the local car rental agents. They will not misguide you.
