    Directions from airport

    hey all, well we are down to 6 days until we are back in paradise! We have friends flying in and they are renting a car. My question is, do the car rental agencys have maps that they give you or you can buy? this is our 13th trip and have never rented a car. I don't know what agency he used to rent the car.

    that is a good question.
    i would have thought that maps are provided, but in all of the years we have rented from hans of Tropic, we have never been offered a map.


    i would find something online and print it out
    or
    use the map that is in the "welcome bag" upon arrival (if that bag is even given out anymore)
    or
    just follow the signs from the airport.
    it is a very direct route from airport to hotel area.

    or if there is time before they have to fly out
    buy this map.
    we have one of these and they are terrific, and laminated

    Tropical will deliver car to you right to door number 6 in AUA[by yellow customer service booth] and guy will give you all necessary directions to get where you should get but map you should get on your own.The best way to get one in AUA kiosk, cost me $10.00 [i still never used it, much easy was to ask directions from local people and 2 days later you,ll know your way around anyway]
