I'm a loyal Avis customer. I've always had good expriences with their service and vehicles, wherever I go. They also have a reputation for being a progressive, gay-friendly company, which I value. They have a policy of covering domestic partners as additional drivers just as they do married spouses.

We were very happy w/ the vehicles (one Jeep Wranger and one Suzuki Jimny) from Royal Car Rental on our recent trip. They were friendly, quick to respond to questions, had the cars ready to go when we arrived and checked us back in quickly when we returned them. They also provide a rental cell phone for free w/ a five-day (or more) car rental, so if you're already planning to rent a phone, it'll save you that cost.

after using 8 other places on the island thru the years i tried tropic on the recommendation of andrea. as long as hans is in business he will be my choice. his prices are good but better than that he personally responds to all emails, is punctual with delivery, adds those little touches such as the coins to get out of the airport, a car in good shape (and with 35 years in the auto repair business we know the difference) and the car he promised.

We have used Tropic now for all of the same reasons that Sherry mentioned.
We had used Econo, Economy and a couple of others, but not came close to Tropic and the customer service that Hans provides. He is the kind of guy that you'd entrust with your kids! He is a kind dear man.

I messed up. I voted for toyota (boo hiss) instead of Tropic.
Hans, if you read this message board please forgive me.

My typing skills are for the birds. No excuses, just a poopy typist.

That's pretty funny, Andrea!

I voted for Econo, they've never let me down. I may try Tropic next year, since they get such rave reviews from senior BBers...but change is so scary!

We've successfully used Econo twice, but if Tropic can beat the price, we'll be happy to try them.

I've used Thrifty the last two times on was on the island because I was staying at the Renaissance and they have a desk right there in the hotel lobby. Having said that, I cannot give Thrifty too much of a vote because (1) they did not accept my debit card and, instead, required me to put down a substantial cash deposit (this might be common practice so I'm not going to be too critical of Thrifty on that point) and (2) the second time I rented from them, I got a PT Cruiser that was in serious need of an oil change and general routine maintenance. It didn't break down on me during the week that I drove it but it was touch and go.
