Rental Car at SJU airport?

We are headed to PR in early March and want to rent a car.. I have heard nothing but bad reviews of Hertz... any other rental agencies that are better than others? We were thinking trying Budget or Avis? One way or the other we are renting a car, do we need to catch a cab from the airport to get to the agencies or are they in the airport?

Thanks!

I always use AVIS but also reccomend checking priceline to get the best price. though the AVIS website always gives the best price for my needs(one day one way rental)

I have never seen any car rental counters near the baggage areas. am i missing something?

Spoke with Charlie's this morning. Assured me that they would be available if we had any car problems. Prices appear to be around $20 cheaper on line and when I called them.

Thrifty was great. and cheap for a minivan. Just make sure you ask for a copy of the map for returning the car, so there is no confusion when it comes time to go back to the airport.

I'd be happy to get any advice about Charlies or other rental agencies as well. Large family group of 14 travelling in late February. Will need 2 minivans to get us to house in Ocean Park.

Or rent one minivan & taxi the rest?

Also, the airport office(I think it's in Isla Verde) is open 24 hrs where the others close at 5.
