    My pleasure. We arrived at the airport and were met by a gentleman holding a sign with our name on it. He escorted us out to a waiting vehicle and drove us over to the office which is off site. The paperwork was all ready when we got there. I walked around the car with the agent and he noted any scratches on the rental agreement, he took a copy of my credit card, I initialed and signed the agreement and we were off. Couldn't have taken more than 20 minutes from the time we were met at the airport till we were on our way. Turn in was the same, quick and easy. Again a walk around of the car inspecting for damage, signed the credit card receipt and we got a ride back to the departure terminal. Very easy, no issues and only $500 for three weeks. The car was fairly new and had great AC and radio.

    We had a fun ride in that Picanto!

    Andrea, you may also want to compare Optima - we had excellent service and price with them this past trip....first time using them as Tropic didn't have availability, and I'll definitely use them again.

    often Royal gets mixed reviews

    i know that if walt had an issue he would have rectified it before he posted about it.

    i am glad that all was well
