Good value and

Good value and everything was as expected, additional driver charge seemed expensive to me so didn't bother.

Had a nightmare

Had a nightmare with Avis when we arrived. Basically, the car we booked was not available, they tried to fob me off with a cheaper car (Suzuki Swift) which was not big enough. After the manager got involved they finally found a car miraculously in the yard that was acceptable. Bigger than we booked so assume they didn't want to upgrade. Unecessary stress at the start of our holiday.

Getting the right rental car in Antigua and Barbuda

In fact, only Avis, Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty are the recognised car rental companies here, whilst Drive-A-Matic are well known in the Caribbean, a household brand they are not.

That said, less choice isn’t always a bad thing as you’ll find it clearer to see all the options available rather than having to sort the good from the bad.
