  1. Would anyone have any discount codes to use at car rental agencys? Have asked this before and only suggestion was Costco. A couple of years ago there was a list of the codes but I can't find it. I used one of them and it saved me a significant amount of money. TIA
  2. I agree with the high price of rental cars. When I first started going up to Alaska I rented cars from Rent-a Wreck. Cheap rates but some crazy cars. When I started staying 6+ weeks I would check craigs list and purchase a car needing min. repairs. Being handy with cars I would repair them and sell them when leaving. I made out pretty good financially. Now I just use one of my nephews cars.
  3. I have been going to Alaska (never a cruise) for over 20 years. Have done the drive from Eagle River to the Kenai Peninsula probably over a 100 times. Have never been bored and and it is constantly changing. Probably my favorite thing to do when up there.
  4. I'm planning on going to Alaska for 10 days in early March for the start of the Iditarod race. I also have a Caribbean cruise scheduled for late March if it happens.
  5. Would anyone happen to have any discount codes for car rentals in Florida (Tampa) TIA
  6. Thank you but no I am not.

  8. Been up there ice fishing in winter at -50F and -28F and never needed a heated jacket. I think at that time of year you are going it will not be needed. Am planning on going in March again.
  9. We were scheduled to go to eastern Europe in August via Lufthansa air. 3 days after cancelled scheduled flight we got 100% refund on our CC.
  10. Lately I have been getting a bunch of e-mails from cruise lines and TA's with great deals on cruises. How can anyone book a future cruise if: 1. They don't know when ,if, and where they will start cruising. 2. They don't know what the rules and regs. that will be enforced if they do start. 3. And last but not least why would someone put more money down on a future when you can't get a refund or FCC on a cruise already booked that was cancelled. How stupid do they think we are?? Any body with an ounce of brains in their head would not be booking future cruises no matt
  11. I am hoping to get up there the first part of March for the start of the Iditarod. Will be testing my blood thinner out as the last time I did that it was -50F at night. Snow machined along the race to the third checkpoint then circled back. Don't think I will be doing that again!
  12. When I cancelled a March 2020 cruise I booked a 2021 cruise and was told I could not use FCC for deposit. I recently contacted RCCL about refunding my deposit and using FCC but was told to contact TA. Called TA and was told RCCL wouldn't allow it. Seems like I am caught between the cat and the canary! I need a copy of the change in print so I can dispute with CC. TIA
  13. Would you happen to have the change from RCCL stating the FCC can be used as down payment? I would appreciate it very much.
  14. When I got up there 6/24 everything was open. The day before I left on 8/4 they locked things back down. Still is to date.
  15. If the airfares stay low I might head up there in March for a couple weeks. Will also be looking at the snowfall there as I will be doing some snowmachining and ice fishing.
