  • First City Car Rental

    The newest and by far most friendliest & helpful of all the Ketchikan Alaska Car Rental companies! I was in a bind last summer and needed a rental car in the worst way. I contacted every Ketchikan car rental companies and no one could help. I explained my predicament to First City Car Rental and they were able to help me out!

Rent an Electric Car as your Car Rental Alaska!

Electric Car Rentals

These cute little Electric Cars have been zipping along Ketchikan for a couple years and provide the perfect alternative for smaller groups. Seating is limited to 4 but these little cars are great for those with limited mobility! The vehicles are completely enclosed so no worries with getting wet on those rainy & misty days. The cars go 25 miles an hour and because of that, are limited to the downtown city streets (where the speed limit is 20mph) but they are the perfect way to see all of the downtown sights.

The electric cars rent for $50/hr and can seat up to 4 people. The Electric cars are rented on a first-come-first-served basis when you arrive in town, or you may make a reservation with a 1 hour non-refundable deposit by calling (907) 225-2277 or sending an e-mail to therainbarrel@gmail.com.

The Ketchikan Electric Cars are rented from The Rain Barrel which is located in front of the Ketchikan Lumberjack Show on Spruce Mill Way.




Private Hummer

Or....rent a Hummer H2, which includes a driver & guide, for your exclusive tour through Ketchikan Alaska. While you can't drive the Hummer (it comes with a guide), the Alaska Hummer Adventures is traditionally a 4 hour tour where you get to do whatever you desire. However, they have hourly availability (2-hour minimum) and can operate as a limo or private car service - whatever you wish. The Hummer H2’s have seating for 5 passengers and ample luggage room in the back. Check out my experience on the Alaska Hummer Adventure!



Which ever car rental company you decide, you will have an amazing time in town!  Enjoy!
