Alaska Auto Rental is expanding its service area this year and opening a new year-round location at 300 Airport Rd, Valdez, Alaska. Opening on April 3, 2023, the new rental location will offer a selection of cars, SUVs, trucks, and vans for rental and leasing services in Valdez, as well as one-way rentals between Valdez and any other city in Alaska.
"The team at Alaska Auto Rental is excited about this opportunity to support the community of Valdez by providing its residents, businesses, and visitors with additional transportation options within the local community and a new alternative to connect them to the rest of the state," said Carl Thomas, general manager of Alaska Auto Rental in a statement. “Alaska Auto Rental’s mission is to provide flexible driving options throughout Alaska. Opening a location in Valdez furthers that goal. We look forward to serving the community of Valdez.”
The new location is projected to generate several jobs and business opportunities in the Valdez community.
