    Rental Car?

    Those of you who have been brave enough to rent a car in JA... rope in!






    Where did you rent it from?

    Good experiences?

    Bad experiences?

    Any place you would recommend?

    I was going to just send you a pm, but I had not seen much of you lately...





    So do you make a reservation before you go, or wait till you land and book it there?

    I finally took Jitters advice and began renting from Island as well ...

    Excellent service / Excellent cars

    Handy - their counter is (has been) just by the exit door

    Competitive rates ... I have nuff searched - their rates are the best and cars are right at the airport - means you do not need to load luggage and shuttle to a different location for unloading and paperwork and load the car - yada yada (with the same pon return) ...

    so far - so good ... and I will continue to use them ~

    Ditto. And they don't charge a drop off fee to return the car to another location.

    I have never rented from anyone else. I used them the first time, was satisfied, and kept on using them. Plus they always have the lowest rates.

    Deposit. I think they held a deposit on my cc. Not sure how much it was.

    And if you use a gold Mastercard, the insurance is covered.

    Hey MG, I didn't see a trip report from you.

    Re: Rental Car?

    right - I put the deposit on my AMEX ... and pay the bill with my Visa Check Card ... so - I do not actually use a credit card for any of the transation - cuz the deposit is never processed ... just &quot;held&quot; ...

    right - if you do have Gold or Platinum cards - sometimes the deposit is covered - mine is not ... so it run as a 'hold' ...
