I haven't been to the island since 2016 and use to rent from Empress for years also referred all my friends to them. I emailed them, but never heard back from them. I wonder if Dudley is still the proprietor?
We rented from them for 2 weeks in October. Good used car, just how we like it. Good price, $8/day + $5/day for added driver. With taxes & fees, came to $232 + change. They also had some very beautiful new cars to rent if you wanted one, but we prefer a car with a few dings already added.
If life hands you a lemon, just squeeze it on a lobster!
