    ?'s about Bully

    I've read a lot about Bully and was wondering if i should use him instead of renting a car. There will be 4 adults and 2 kids the 1st week of our trip anmd then 2 more adults for the 2nd week. We really only need a car to go to dinner and a casino every night of the trip and probably the food store a few times throughout the trip. The kids won't be going out at night with us so i really can't see renting a car (really a van or large suv) and wasting the money. I'm thinking it would probably be cheaper to take a taxi??? I could definitely use some advice....thanks.

    Bully is great. He picked us up at the airport.
    But.... taxis can only take 5 people. So you will have a problem with 6 even with a rental car. Bully does have his brother that he uses to help him, I traveled with a group of 8 so we needed 2 to get from the airport to hotel.

    We took taxis for dinner (3 nights out of 6). Depending on where you are staying, and where the restaurants are, should tell what you should do.

    hmmmm
    imo you may be shelling out more in cabfares than for a car rental.
    you can get a compact car for maybe < $200 a week and then figure in about $25 for gas.
    do your math and see which is more economical and convenient.

    you will be on vacation...........it is nice to have your car for little jaunts to the store, dropping the kids at an excursion, picking the kids up etc

    bully is a good guy and does a great job.
    but if you need a rental car or 2, contact a car rental agency.

    a great one is TROPIC

    Don't know if I am reading this right. If you will have 6 people the first week, but only 4 going out to dinner each evening a taxi will be less expensive. Of course, this is also only if you are not venturing further south than Oranjestad for dinner. This even figures in the cost of two taxis picking you up at the airport. Like Sgroi135 said, Bully has relatives (brother, uncle, cousin, nephews) who are also taxidrivers who he would recruit.

    NOW, for your second week, if you are 6 adults the following week, a rental would probably be less expensive than one rental, but taxis cheaper than two rentals. Would most likely depend on how much you use the vehicles, will you be dring elsewhere besides dinner, and what kind a "deal" you get on a vehicle. A 7 passenger mini van or SUV would accommodate 6 adults.

    Yeah, it will be 4 adults the first week and then 6 the 2nd week. A compact the 1st week might be a good idea because with the exception of going to the store i don't really think we'll drive anywhere. Where is tropic located??? We usually rent from a place near la cabana and i can't remember the name of it....

    Tropic will deliver and pick up the car at your resort if you choose.

    Maybe I am reading this incorrectly. Will you have some sort of babysitter for the kids the first 2 weeks???
