    Car rental suggestions

    We just booked our trip for 05/31 to 06/14. Emailed Hans at tropic and he doesnt have any cars available. Any one have a plan B?

    We couldnt get Hans this past December with 4 months advance! We used Payless and all went well. We filled up at Valero gas to bring it back full. They did not fill it to the top and payless was kind enough to let it go. The shuttle worked out fine and they are just outside the airport. Very easy to head into town without the airport mess. With that said, we booked Hans for next December when we got back to the U.S because he is a great guy and we like him.

    I usually rent from Avis but there rates seem really high this year. Has anyone waited until the day of arrival to rent? Or is that a bad idea.

    Bad idea. There is often a shortage of cars.

    Last year in August Hans told us as we where leaving it would be good to book 6 months in advance or he might not have any cars. So I have already booked for next August I love his cars as far as I am concerned the cleanest on the island and such a nice man.
    Next Aruba trip in
