Transportation to Anchorage

We're going to be in Soldotna in July with four others, and we have to fly out two days before the others, so we are trying to figure out the cheapest way to get to Anchorage from Soldotna. We've concidered renting a car, but Hertz is the only company I've found nearby, and they want $190 for the one day. They have lost their minds! We've also concidered the train, but we'd have to leave a day early due to the timing of the train vs. our flight, which would require a hotel stay in Anchorage.

We have free lodging in Soldotna, and would like to stay as long as possible!

Any advice or new ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

train doesnt go to soldotna. stage line is the best, or craigslist a ride. even the local public radio stations have ride lines - and if you could help with gas people are very friendly. if you aren't comfortable with that and aren't traveling on a tuesday/ thursday (only days that homer stage line runs) then renting a car or flying back is going to be your only bets. give the soldotna or kenai chamber of commerce a google and a call, they can help you out a lot. (also they usually give wicked deals on car rentals - generally its never as expensive as they tell you on the phone, even without the deal. don't worry about it, you can get the best info on how to get back when you are actually in soldotna, everyone is super helpful. best of luck.
