Smile Re: Car Rental

Good Morning Elaine! We have used Budget of Aruba for the past few trips and have found them very accommodating. Top Drive Car Rental also is wonderful. The gentleman there, Many, was great to deal with this past visit. We even referred a friend to him for a three day rental of a jeep and they too were extremely pleased.
Budget you can reserve completely on-line, while Top Drive and More-4-Less, also very pleasant, will work with you through e-mails.
Good Luck and Enjoy!

Elaine, I recommend, without reservation, Tropic Car Rental. I have been renting from Hans for 15 years. In that time he has never disappointed me. Hans is a local man who has a large following. I have recommended him to countless people who have become repeat renters. Hans can meet you at the airport (and is never late) or he will deliver a car to your hotel. His email address: tropiccarrent@setarnet.aw

Tropic also gets my vote. I rented from Econo for years & was very satisfied but decided to try Tropic about 5 years ago after reading so many good things about them. I don't regret that decision & just confirmed my November rental with Hans yesterday............

Tropic is the only way to go..Hans is the best and is there with the car as you come out of the terminal.. And no waiting when u leave..Tropic is by far the best..I've been coming to the Island since 93.. took alot of rentals but finally found Hans about 5 yrs ago..Consistant, reliable, clean cars..Doesn't nickle and dime you.. Funny thing, last year we walked around the car and he pointed out some dings..Said " I don't worry about them, every car on Aruba has em".. No one is better..They are HONEST.. nothin hidden..And id you have a problem, they are there immediatly to take care of it

They are all very good. It all depends if you want to pick
up your car at the Airport or They will pick you up and take
you to their place to pick up the car. Most of them are
pretty close to the Airport.
Just try to stay away from American and Super Car rentals.
I'm not sure if anyone else has had a problem in the past
put I would never do it again.
Been using Royal for the last 7 years and never had a problem.
Quite a few people use Tropic and they never had a problem
also. As I said before, most of the rentals are pretty good and
you should not have a problem.
