Any favorite rental agencies? I want this to be as "stress-free" a vacation as possible, which is why it seems easiest to rent at the airport....
    We have been renting at the airport the past 4 years and have used Hertz, but this year we got a much better rate from Budget for the week. It does take 10-15 minutes when you pick up and drop off, but then you don't have to deal with getting a rental at the hotel/timeshare and spending time once you're there. I think it comes down to personal choice- we always love driving from the airport to Palm Beach after we land as the excitement of spending the week in Aruba builds. We did rent from a local company 5 years ago and had a bad experience (bad tires, dirty car, lousy service) so we decided to go with the "name brands" and maybe pay a few extra $$. We have a Toyota Corolla (only 2 of us this time) from Budget for $215 week including airport fees, etc. so we're pretty happy. We love having the car available to explore, go to dinner, basically have freedom to go wherever we want whenever we want.

    the best help that you can be is posting here on the forum.

    if you have car rental suggestions, please post in the "getting around aruba" section.

    if you have suggestions on restaurants "culinary and culture"
