Car rental in CUR
      #1746543 - 09/17/17 09:56 AM (172.220.209.243)

Hello, me and my wife will be traveling to Curaçao the end of October. I know some of y'all on TTOL have traveled there quite a bit, so this is our first time to the island. I was wounding who you use for a car rental company, or are they all basically the same? We will only be there a little over a week, so any incite or advise would be much appreciated! And we are renting a ocean side villa that is 9.3 mile from the airport. Thanks

Post your question or research car rentals on the TripAdvisor Curacao forum. Lots of info there.

We use Budget and pick up and register in the airport. It has always worked for us, some on T/A prefer local rentals. I do on SXM. Just make sure you either take pics of the car before you take off.

We are also traveling to Curacao at the end of October and have booked with D&D car rental, a local who came very highly recommended. I emailed him and told him exactly what we wanted; Daniel responded the very next day, and we're all set.

not a car question, but which airline did you use?

We are booked with American Airlines out of Charlotte, NC. We usually fly Delta to SXM, but they don't go to Curacao. American seemed the only viable option.

Thanks irish1223, we had also heard of D&D’s as well. I think we will give them a try. We are also flying thur Ctl as well, but are taking a layover in Miami, because we don’t want to arrive at 9:53 at night. Are y’all also going thru Miami as well?

If you all rent a car, take a trip to Karacter's It's the original owners of Karater on Simpson Bay. His name is Jaritt (forgot the wife's name). They are on Coral Estates, need a car, it is west of Willemstadt. Food is fantastic. They are rated # 6 of all restaurants in Curacao. On a beach, fantastic sunsets!
