Charter rental in Alaska

Alaska vehicle rental is a HUGE business. Just go online and do a search on “Alaska vehicle rental”, "Alaska RV rental" or Alaska car rental" and see how many choices are returned to you.

When considering any vehicle rental, you’ll find that there will be a lot of variables to consider. Some Alaska vehicle rental considerations will be things like lodging preferences (whether you’ll sleep in the vehicle or in a motel/lodge), cost and how many are in your party. We’ll go over some options and then it will be up to you to decide which option will be best for your particular situation.

There are many choices in Alaska vehicle rental. You can rent a compact, mid-size or luxury car. You can rent a minivan, conversion van, truck or truck camper. And there is a multitude of Alaska RV rental choices available. The choices seem almost endless but with each step up comes added cost. If your sleeping arrangements include sleeping in a motel or at a lodge, then all you’ll need is a vehicle large enough to carry the number of passengers in your group and their luggage. This will be a very simple Alaska car rental decision.

If your sleeping arrangements include sleeping on the go as you traverse the limited highway systems and there are only 2 or 3 in your party, then your Alaska vehicle rental will need to be a step up to a small RV or to a custom conversion van. My preference on this one is the conversion van. With this option, you are both highly mobile and extremely comfortable as you move from location to location in search of the ultimate fishing spot.

If your sleeping arrangements include sleeping on the go and there are four or more in your party, then you’ll be going all out with a mid to full-size Alaska RV rental. These monsters offer just about all the comforts of home but their size means that much more care and planning will be needed as you travel from place to place. You’ll need to watch for low lying branches and low bridges. Parking will be more of a challenge. The Alaska vehicle rental process takes longer for RV's as they review safety tips with you. And they consume a lot more fuel than the smaller vehicles. They are expensive to rent but given the number of people in your group, it may end up being the same cost per person if the expenses are divided among the group.

If you plan on going the camping route…let’s face it…you just won’t have enough room to pack all the camping supplies that you’d like to have with you. The good news is that you don’t have to. Many of the RV rental companies have camping supply packages where you can rent your sleeping bags, cook stoves, propane lanterns, skillets/pots/pans and many other items. Ask your dealer for details and costs to rent these items.

Insurance is a topic that many don’t want to talk about, especially on vacation. But it is a necessity when renting a vehicle. Check with your insurance agent before traveling to see what kind of insurance your policy includes for your Alaska vehicle rental. If your policy doesn’t include this, you’d be advised to pay the few dollars extra to purchase this. These vehicles are very expensive and there’s no telling what may happen. Ask for your agent’s advice and follow it.

Another factor that could influence who you rent from is the way they handle mileage. Some will charge per mile. Some will be free up to a certain number of miles each day. Some will offer unlimited miles for the entire rental period. Be aware of this and negotiate this if possible.

Don’t forget to ask for an early-bird discount. If you’re following my advice, you should be starting your research about one year prior to your trip. Once you decide which rental company you’re going to rent from, ask them if they have any discounts for early birds. They may not, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.

So far we’ve talked about the beginning of the rental period. Now we’ll switch gears and talk about a few things to take care of once the fishing has ended and the trip is coming to a close. Before returning your vehicle, make sure you stop off at a car wash and clean your vehicle inside and out. Some companies are real sticklers when it comes to cleanliness and the security deposit. By cleaning the vehicle, you won’t have to worry about not getting your deposit back and you may score some points with the rental company which could be beneficial on a return trip.

No matter where you were fishing, you’ll be heading back to Anchorage the day before your flight departs. You’ll have some things to wrap up before leaving. If you had someone process your fish, you’ll need to make sure you go and pick it up. If you have an RV or custom van, I would recommend returning it as soon as you get into Anchorage and then renting a less expensive vehicle (car or minivan) for the evening and next day to save some money. This way you can cruise Anchorage in comfort and then simply refuel what you’ve used before dropping it off at the airport just before your flight departs.

Fishing Charter Advertising on the Internet

Frequently I hear from fishing charter captains they are stopping their
print advertising because the results for the price are hard to justify
compared to their internet results. In the past, print advertising was
really all that was available to a Captain. Now the internet has become
part of most peoples lives and the prices to advertise much less than print
advertising. So let's talk about where you should consider advertising so
those clients find you.
Get your site listed with Google, AOL, MSN, Yahoo and all the search engines
you can. This will require you work with your web person to submit it. Also in
order to get a good position in Google and the others you will need to get links
to your site and have good search keywords in your site. This is where your
web person can help you make this happen. The judge of your success on this
is where on the list your site appears when a person searches on your main
keyword. Your main keyword is what describes your business the best. If
you are a fishing charter in Key West your best keyword is "Key West Fishing
Charters". Check your success on at least 6 or 8 search engines to see where
your site is on the list (and do this each month to see how it changes). If you
are number 355 you can't expect to get many visits to your site. Ultimately
you want to be on the first page or two of your main search keyword
depending on how much competition you have.
Get in the fishing directories. Typically the best place for clients to find a
fishing charter are fishing site directories. These sites have lists of fishing
charters and fishing guides by state and location. This is very important
and one of the best places to have your listing. The price on this listing can
range from a free listing to featured listings that cost money. Don't be shy.
The more the better. Just be careful with your advertising budget on this.
Pick out the top 3 or 4 sites you want to pay for and get listed with those.
Then get a free listing with every other site you can. To find these
directories just search for "fishing charter directory" or "fishing charters"
in MSN.com or another search engine and you should locate most of the
top directories. The best directory sites have listings by location
(i.e. Key West, San Diego, etc.). If the site lists all the fishing charters in
Florida your listing is one of a whole bunch. But if they list your site under
Florida/Titusville area then you are one of not as many and the clients
have a much easier time finding the charters they are looking for in the
area they plan to visit. Whenever you pick a site to list with, take the
time to look at it... make sure this is a simple useful site for your clients
to find you.
Using Google adwords might be worthwhile. These are pay by the click
advertising you can do with Google. You see these on the right side of the
Google Search page. How affective your ads will be can vary greatly
depending on the keywords. If you select "Destin Fishing Charters"
then there are a lot of other ads out there and even if you pay $1.00 a
click (which is very expensive for clicks) then you may still not see too
many visitors from that ad. Take your best shot at this and pick one to
ten ads and start with around a .21 cent click and see how that does. If
needed to get a good position increase your click amount but do so
carefully. You can spend a lot of money on this so make sure it is giving
you the results you need. Use keywords that will get you 'quality' clicks
and not just a lot of curiosity shoppers who never book. A keyword
such as "Key West Fishing Charters" may work well for you because
those persons are looking specifically for fishing charters in your area.
However, "Key West" will give you more clicks because it is more
generic but those clicks are lower quality because they aren't specific.
Doing cross promotions are always a great way to advertise on the internet.
The price is right. I will put your banner on my site and you put mine on
yours for no charge. This method is great for both sides. You can also pay
sites to list yours. Depending on the site and traffic they receive it may
be worth it. Some larger sites will charge hundreds of dollars per month
for a banner and some you can get for just a few dollars a month. Pick
your sites well. Good fishing site banner advertising will typically get you
the best quality visitors that are really looking. So you know also, the
search engines like to see different banners and links which makes your
site do better in the keywords. The best ad is a banner with your link
shown below it. However, your link shown should be "fishing charters"
which when clicked goes to your site. This is a relavent link and tells
Google that the link has to do with fishing charters.
Those are some of the basics of internet advertising. Like everything
else it can be simple and cheap up to extremely expensive and complex.
Remember to try to compare your results to see where your spending
money and if it is making the return. Your web person can help here.
There are systems you can use that will tell you how someone got to
your site (via Google search, BlueSportFishing directory listing, banner
you had on the local tackle shop site, etc.). Obviously anytime you speak
to a client ask them how they found out about you and ask them if they
have seen your website. While a word of mouth might get the client
directed to you, it might have been your site that really created the call.
Get feedback on your site from your clients and your web person.

Things To Know About Fishing Charter

Recreation is an essential factor in the life of every human being.
The anglers or the fishermen represent the largest single group
of recreational seekers, and have a decided advantage over the
other groups who utilize nature’s creatures and elements for
recreation or food.
The popularity of fishing in many areas has been largely based
upon the angling pressure, which is far beyond the normal capacity
of the streams and lakes. There are species of fish for every type of
angler and each one may choose the species of fish or the method of
fishing that has the greatest personal appeal or attraction.
It is for this reason that many people are enticed to spend their
vacation in a fishing activity. But, for people who would like to have
planned fishing activities, they opt for fishing charters.
Fishing charter is one way of enjoying fishing even if an individual
does not have the means or the equipment as far as fishing is concerned.
It aims to provide the necessary services in a fishing activity.
However, not all fishing charters are created equal. Hence, it is important
to know the factors required to be taken into account before jumping
into conclusions.
Here is a list of some mportant factors that need to be considered:
1. The cost of the trip
Like any financial decision, people who would like to use fishing charter
should know the required charges of the trip.
It is best to know the necessary requirements like deposits or contract
agreements before committing to a fishing charter.
Best of all, people should be aware of the items they are paying for. They
should know what the kinds of services included on the package are.
2. The length of time required in each charter trip.
Most captains are enticed to do a little fishing before going back to the
dock. This will not pose a problem at all but if it will cost the person, who
requested the service, additional charges for extra minutes or hours spent
beyond the agreed number of hours, then, that is a problem.
Hence, it is important for the individual to know what time the charter
will start and end.
3. The captain
It is important for a person who wants to engage in a fishing charter to
know the competency and the skills of the captain. Hence, in order to
have a successful fishing activity, it is best to get the experienced captain.
A fishing charter is one way of enjoying fishing at its best.
