Anybody heard of/seen or used these guys?

Coming up cheapest for a rental in less than 30 days.

Things more expensive than last year but I am also last minute.

Just remember you get what you pay for. Make sure quote is all inclusive.

And to add to what the previous poster said, and while I’m not personally familiar with this car rental agency, ‘cheapest’ isn’t always the most important criteria.


Respectfully,

IMHO -If they're affiliated with the parent company Amazon in the U.S. I'd go elsewhere no matter what the price. They have devastated many of the small local companies in U.S that SXM cannot afford to squeeze.

The chances that they are affiliated with Amazon in the US are slim and none.. First of all, I don't think Amazon in the US even does car rentals. Second, I'm not even sure places like Hertz, etc in SXM are affiliated with the companies in the US. And third, companies in SXM just take whatever names they think sound good, regardless of trademarks, etc.

I know you like hertz but the quote direct from Hertz for 10 days has taxes, concession and admin comes out to $564.40. 480 rental plus tax, conc, admin. Doesn’t say anywhere that any coverage liability, etc is included. It does say other charges may apply at time of rental (damage, traffic charges, and fuel).

I skipped Amazon. ACE, who I have used before is quoting $310 +$67.80 for sim fees for total of $377.80and also doesn’t talk about any coverages to chose.

Leaves me with $183 or $18.30/day to buy any coverages or roll the dice and buy groceries.

If you reread on the hertz web site for SXM hertz they state liability is provided free with quote. Might want to re-read what is on site and then make dissision. Your call but liability is important to have but then on another thread liability is an add on for some companies as a money grab since it has to be provided by rental company per law.
