    Recent experiences renting cars

    I know this question always comes up but I never really pay attention to them because we do not usually rent a car- has been many years since we have. We were thinking of maybe renting a car for 5 days at the beginning of our trip. Has anyone had a recent experience renting from somewhere that they really liked? We really only want to rent for our first 5 days and so it would be a Sunday -Thursday rental period and would they come to our hotel (Holiday Inn)to pick up the car?

    We use Tropic and have been very satisfied with every aspect of the experience. Hans has nice reliable cars and good customer service. Contact them with your questions at:

    Agreed. We've been renting from them for months now and don't have one complaint about them. Excellent customer service and competitive rates. HIGHLY recommend Tropic.

    3rd thumbs up for Tropic

    Be aware that his fleet is less than 50 vehicles, so reserving as far out as possible from your Aruba dates is very necessary.
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind?

    In November we used Yes Rental car for the second time. They came to the hotel for drop off and pick up. They were timely, vehicles in good condition and friendly husband and wife owners. We reserved ahead of time and were not required to pay until they came to drop the vehicle off to us.
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.

    Has anyone rented with Wheels2go lately? I think that's who we rented with last time and had a good experience.

    I'm going to send messages to the other 2 listed here. The websites don't have a way to tell a pricing for a certain amount of days on their cars. I really wish they would put this feature in.

    We always rent from Wheels2Go and are very satisfied. E mail them for a quote and you will receive the price quickly. We pay at the end of the rental with our credit card. Cars are in very good condition and they pick you up at the airport upon arrival and will drive you back to the airport when you return car. Hope this helped.

    I generally use Tropic and love them. In spring 2019 I did a long weekend trip and used Wheels 2 Go and was very happy with them!

    Tropic is already booked up for our dates. Fingers crossed that yes and wheels might have something. :/


    edit: Wheels2go is booked as well.
