Car rental agencies?
      #1749239 - 10/12/17 09:17 AM (73.255.141.246)

I wonder what the status is of the car rental agencies? Bill and Elaine posted that a friend of theirs on island was unable to obtain a rental car. There have to be some cars available?

I emailed Alain from Triple A but did not hear back. We wanted to let him know we weren't coming and to ask how he was doing.

I guess you would be going very soon now. So sorry.

I think email is very slow and non existent in some cases still.

Yes, we would have been only 13 days away from a 2 week long vacation meeting up with friends we hadn't seen in a year and others who we luckily are able to see on a more regular basis. God willing there will be a visit for us next year.

This is what Lesley said to me a few weeks ago:

"a lot of the cars are damaged from flying debris . Have started working on them and have one missing , but it will be covered by the clients credit card. "

OK, thanks. Anyone else we can add to the list? Or are most people open, just don't have any available cars because of so many cars damaged??

Just spoke with Anthea of Affordable Car Rentals, they are open for business, 721-523-2290. Affordable Car Rentals is located near the airport, I know that Patrick move most of his cars to high ground before the hurricane, some of the cars were damaged by the high winds.

Good news, Lesley, and glad you were able to locate it.

I canít imagine what everyone is going through in trying to locate and establish ownership of missing goods, particularly cars, with so many having been totally destroyed.

Thanks Pat and yes you are correct because a lot of cars were actually stolen, but not ours . It was left parked between some containers without it license plates.

I contacted Allain a few weeks ago via WhatsApp text message and told him I was planning on coming in January. He got back to me about a day later and said everyone was ok. I assume that included Myra. He said many of his cars were damaged but he had insurance and would be ready for us when we come. I was uncertain about my arrival due to flights etc and said I would be in touch. He said he would look forward to hearing from me.
If you havenít heard from him perhaps a phone call would be the way to go.

Glad to hear that Alain is ok. Agreed, our dependence on email here in the states for everything doesn't work so well in SXM, especially these days. A phone call is often best.

I emailed Alain this AM about my cancellation of our January trip and got a response a couple of hours later. They are fine but obviously have a lot of damaged cars.

I got a car from Empress for this week. I tried to call Unity but got no answer from 2 different phone numbers. Probably should have tried internet.

Some of the phone numbers are down , hence the no connection.
Most of us are up and running .
