    Car Rental? Ideas?

    We are traveling to Aruba from March 9-18th, 2018. We will be a group of 5 or 6 adults and 2 car seats. Couple questions...

    1. Should we do a van or rent 2 cars?
    2. Best company to rent from? (We usually use Top Drive, but am happy to change---looking for the best deal!)

    Thanks for your input!

    you may be better off with 2 cars.
    it'll give folks to break off and do things individually if the opprotunity arises.

    there are numerous good rental agencies
    i would read thru this category/forum and see what others are saying.

    my husband and i like TROPIC (email) tropiccarrent@setar.aw
    they book far in advance

    We're in the same situation this coming October. It appears to be more economical for two cars then one van. We use Wheels2Go. Ricky and Anky do a great job.

    I'd definitely do two cars. Vans are pretty expensive in Aruba and I also like the option of being able to split up in the need arises.

    Definitely two cars and either Tropic or Wheels to go are fantastic car rental places. Dick.
