Our flight arrives before 7:00 AM or after 6:00 PM. What can we do?
You have two options, depending on how you would like to spend your first night. You can stay in a hotel and pick up the motorhome the following day during our normal pick up hours of 11:00 a.m. to no later than 6:15 p.m., (with most pick up times between 1:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.), or you can spend the night in the motorhome at our location*. We call this an “After Hours Pick Up”.
Why would you want to do an After Hours Pick Up?
For several reasons:
You go directly from the airport to your motorhome; you only have to unpack once. And, you are already in the motorhome when you wake up in the morning. This is one of the beautiful reasons why you chose a motorhome; you only have to unpack once and your room goes with you where you choose whether it is Denali or Homer!
Our new location is only a short 12 to 15-minute walk on a paved bike path that follows the Old Seward Highway, where you will find many restaurants and the Dimond Mall with movie theaters and shopping. A list of area restaurants, including those that deliver will be in your motorhome. Additionally there is a gourmet coffee shop and deli next to our location. (Hours 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. – subject to change.)
If you choose the hotel option, you will have to pay for the hotel room and you will have to wait until the following afternoon to pick up your motorhome. Remember, all of the motorhomes must be cleaned and the maintenance performed before they are ready to go back out on the road.
With the After Hours Pick Up option you just take a taxi from the airport to our facility and sleep in the motorhome that night. The following morning we will conduct the motorhome orientation, complete the necessary paperwork and you are on the road!
You pay for the number of nights that you occupy the motorhome so your rental begins that first night. If you would like to use our “After Hours Pick Up” option you must reserve the space in advance. This option is subject to limited availability.
Detailed directions to Great Alaskan Holidays and also the location of the motorhome door key will be explained in your confirmation letter which will be mailed to you after your reservation has been processed.
