I'm flying to Aruba next Tuesday (June 10th) with Continental and I arrive at 1:30pm, will it be a long wait or process to get out of airport? I have rented a car with Budget, are they right by the baggage claim or do I need to go somewhere else within the airport? Have you had experiences with them? Also how does the insurance work? Should I get the insurance and pay the extra fee per day? What do you think? I have never rented a car, sorry for the stupid question LOL
The rental office is not inside the airport terminal.When you exit the terminal you will see a roadway where the taxi will be lined up. Across that small road you will see a line of small offices and this is where you will find the Budget office.
For rental insurance, imo, when in doubt do, but see below for additional info:
The process of getting out of the airport can be lenghty or quick depending on many things....customs, have your forms filled out, hopefully the plane will hand them out( they are your tix outa there, so keep it in a safe place). Also, the luggage, can be slow or fast depending on the # of planes coming it around that time frame. We waited 45 minutes to go thru customs the reason being the plane ran out of custom forms and 2 other planes came in at the same time...Lots of people in all of the lines. Just go with an open mind, and know that the minute you get your luggage you are in paradise.
