Hi all ! Long time lurker, 1st time poster ! We will be arriving in Aruba on April 25 for 11 days and would like to rent a jeep for a period of three days. I've searched these forum and most of the info is a bit dated as some of the links are no longer current. Does anyone have any good experiences with certain companies that rent jeeps ? I'm looking at "More4Less" as they have a 2012 4 door for $300 US/3 days. Seems reasonable, but I have heard stories of people arriving to pick up their car and it being hardly roadworthy. Any and All advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again !!
Ended up going with "More4Less". Got a 2012 4 dr hardtop w/ automatic transmission (since the Warden doesn't know how to drive stick) , for $300/ 3 days. When I reserved it, I initially took it for May 1-May 3, thinking Fri, Sat, Sun.....3 days ! He told me that they consider one 24 hr period of time as a day, so if they drop it off at our hotel Friday at noon, we have it until Monday at noon. Now we have it from May 1-4. Yeah Us !
HAHA....My friends and I call her "The Warden" as it's ironic.....She's so easygoing and puts up with me more than I KNOW I could if I were in her shoes. CindyO...enlighten me and tell me what I should be looking for insurance wise ?? I didn't take the CDW insurance and was just gonna rely on whatever my credit card and car insurance covers me for....should I be looking for something else ??
I usually don't get the CDW as the card we put the rental on told us to refuse the insurance. You'll want to speak to an actual person to be absolutely certain what is/isn't covered. As Cindy said most car companies won't want you to offroad in their vehicles, we have never let that stop us but have never been specifically told we couldn't. Besides I've always assumed Royal wanted us to beat their jeeps up considering the condition they are in when we get them.
