Car Rental Companys
Does anyone know what car rental company(s) are at Riu?

I think it is Thrifty. There are less expensive rentals that will deliver and pick-up at the hotel.

Thanks Lynn.

What my plan was, is to rent a car at the airport, drive to the RIU and check in, go grocery shopping and see the island. This would save several buck, since $25 taxi from the airport, $20 for r/t to the grocery store, and get to take our time. Then to leave the car at RIU when were done.

I would check for rates-you can get the car at the airport or off site location and have them pick it up at the Riu. I look for the best rate and 1 that will pick the car up. Try Optima or Tropic. Also-sometimes the USAir site has some good deals.
Good luck and enjoy.

Royal. Make your reservation and they will meet you at the airport. They are great!! Also, they will loan you a cell phone for your stay.

We use Thrifty, pick up at the airport, keep for 2 or 3 days and drop at Riu. Do the opposite for the second week or last couple of days, pick up at Riu and drop at the airport. The Aruba Plus card has a 15% discount for Thrifty which they will add to any other discount, AARP, AAA etc. Once you rent a few times they give you a Thirfty discount card which also can be combined with the Aruba Plus card. I think the max discount is 25% for a weekly rental. Usually 20% for single days.

With all the discounts we get the best rate with Thrifty.
