    Royal Car Rental

    We have rented from Royal the last four times in Aruba and recommend them to everyone we know who goes to Aruba. The cars are not new, but they are clean, run well and the air works. They are off property, but will meet you at the airport and take you to their office (just around the corner). You can find them on the internet. Their prices are very reasonable.

    For those that have used Tropic Car Rental. How long before you leave does Hans get in touch with you about the basics, where to meet, contract, etc?

    you may want to drop him a note.

    he will get in touch about a month prior...........there will be a contract for you to print out and enter your license and credit card info. make 2 copies.

    hans will meet you at the airport with your name on a clipboard.
    he will take you to the car.
    he will put your luggage in the vehicle, give you a token to pay for the parking and you are on your way!

    again, drop him a note to see if there is something that i am missing and to finalize your plan.

    did you check the email that he sent you for an attachment of the contract?

    i did check the email, no attachments. I figured I'd wait till Wednesday. That's two weeks prior. That should be enough time. I have to get the directions for the condo. Though I'm using "taxidriver"'s directions since he knew about the construction of the Ritz. but I need other info. Its always hard when you go someplace for the first time and are dealing with new people, ie car/phone/condo. i'm sure after this first visit, i'll be comfortable about everything as you all are.

    i'm emailing everyone on wednesday, lol......
