    Advice for Rental Car

    Hello Good Folks of the Aruba Community Forum! First post but a long time lurker. My wife and I had our first trip to Aruba in May of this year, and have the second booked for November. On the May trip we rented a car from a global car company and I don't want to rent from the same company later this year. I have read so many post for rental car recommendations that they all seem to run together. Tropic doesn't have availability for the dates we need in November so I am thinking possibly Royal or Wheels 2go. Can you please give your recommendation on these two companies or another company you prefer, and why?
    I love this site and read it every few days. You were a huge asset in planning our first trip, a huge thank you to all that contribute! We have fallen in love with this beautiful island!
    Thank you,
    James and Ana from Alabama.

    We have rented with Wheels 2 Go both last year and will be this year as well when we go the end of October. They are amazing! Their customer service is great, their prices are great and the cars are in great shape. My parents also rented from them last year and this year and had a great experience as well. I have nothing but good things to say about them! I don't know anything about Royal, unfortunately, so I cannot add anything there. Enjoy your trip in November!

    Welcome to the posting side! We recommend Royal, I rented three different vehicles from them our last trip.

    Welcome to the posting side!


    My husband and I most always rent from Tropic, as the service is terrific and the pricing is very reasonable. Where will you be staying in Aruba?

    We are staying in a Airbnb at Mangel Halto. We stayed there in May and fell in love with the area and people. Tropic was my first choice as I have read nothing but positive things about them, but unfortunately they have nothing for our dates.

    One difference we found between Royal and Wheels2Go is that Royal cars are a bit older. Both rental companies offer excellent service. We use both depending on the price offered.

    We rented from Wheels 2 Go when we went in June. They delivered to Manchebo for us. The price was good and the car was in great shape. It was such a good experience that we are renting from them again when we go in Nov. We’d highly recommend them!
