Explore Alaska on your own timetable with a state-of-the-art motorhome from Great Alaskan Holidays RV Rentals, Sales & Service.
When you really want to experience the scenery, culture and history of Alaska, renting a vehicle will give you the most flexibility and control over your adventures. Motorhomes allow you the comfort and convenience of unpacking once and dining in whatever remote spot you find yourself in that day – no pressure to rush to get to a reservation – and no worries about booked-up hotels or check-out times.
Convenience from Start to Finish
Great Alaskan Holidays has been perfecting its approach to vacation travel for more than a quarter century. Owner Daryl Bennett believes in a hassle-free business-model that makes RV rentals an easy, straightforward experience for novice and seasoned RV travelers.
Reserving in advance is easy, with an online system that lets you choose from several different floor model layouts, as well as custom pick-up and drop-off times. Great Alaskan Holidays will send you an orientation packet before your trip, and offers a shuttle service from the airport when you arrive. The rental facility is just ten minutes from the airport, so you’ll be checking in shortly after you land in Alaska. Arriving after hours? No worries – just grab a taxi, stay in your RV that night and do your paperwork the next morning!
Settle into your own viewing room with a cup of coffee for a 30-minute orientation video that will familiarize you with your motorhome and how it operates. Then you’re on your way, in an RV stocked with clean linens, cookware, a television, generator and running water – everything you need for a self-sufficient trip of a lifetime.
New, Clean, Dependable
Great Alaskan Holidays prides itself on a new Winnebago and Thor fleet (no models older than 2016) that is inspected regularly by factory-trained Ford technicians and cleaned to high standards after every rental.
Maintaining quality vehicles reduces break-down incidents and keeps you on the road. Since most private car insurance won’t cover damages to a rented motorhome, Great Alaskan Holidays provides separate insurance for free (there’s a $2,500 deductible, but you can buy an inexpensive waiver to get that down to $250.)
When your journey’s over, there’s no cleaning or long check-in procedure required – just turn in your keys and catch the shuttle to the airport.
On the Road – Peace of Mind
Alaska is RV friendly, and as you take to its roads, highways, ferries and RV parks, you’ll notice a lot of other excited travelers by the “Great Alaskan Holidays” decals on their vehicles. It’s easy to start-up conversations, exchange tips for best places to go, and even travel together in an RV caravan.
Great Alaskan Holidays maintains relationships with repair shops in all major areas of travel, so if you do experience any difficulties, just call the office for advice. Locked your keys in accidentally? Got a flat while exploring? The “hot phone” is answered at all times of day and night by a live support tech who will help you find a solution.
Traveling through Anchorage again during your rental period? Stop by Great Alaskan Holidays to say “Hi,” dump holding tanks and get a fresh water refill. Opt for the reasonably-priced “Freshen Up” service and you’ll also get a cleaning, fresh linens and external motorhome washing.
The Folks Behind the Business
Great Alaskan Holidays has expanded over the years – from five motorhomes in 1985 to today’s bustling fleet: hundreds of Winnebago and Thor motorhomes ranging from 22 to 33 feet, offering multiple floor plans.
Over the years, owner Daryl Bennett has retained a core group of year-round employees who share his vision of the business – to make an Alaskan holiday easy for independent travellers. They focus on doing everything reasonable to provide value and assure a quality experience for renters.
This includes offering Alaska travel advice, sample itineraries and reassurance for first-time travellers who may be wondering just how just they’ll get started exploring a strange new place.
Coming in the Winter?
Lots of people want to play in Alaska’s snow and ice. Whether you’re backcountry skiing in Valdez or tailgating at Arctic Man in Paxson, an RV is a convenient and comfortable way to get there with a guaranteed place to stay and warm up.
