cheap car rental in Bonaire

we are going to bonaire in May for windsurfing and we are not divers.

Does someone knows a company renting cheap cars? Does'nt need to be brand new but AC would be a plus as we have a baby.

Thanks

Check Avis, you can use AMEX CC so you may not have to pay the liability insurance

(depends upon status of card with AMEX). Suggestion: if you are planning to go to the

park, highly recommend a truck. A/C is a must , it gets hot! We have been traveling with

our son to Bonaire since he was 1, now he is 12, will be going this Sat. Let me know if you

need other suggestions about travel to Bonaire with an infant.

You know, it's funny, but while I do recommend a car/truck with AC, other than the initial drive from the airport to our hotel, we never turn it on. We make the drive out to Lac Bay and back every day with the windows open and feeling the fresh air. The air is cool enough in the morning not to need the AC and in the afternoon we're probably still a bit damp from windsurfing and the air blowing through the car feels good. If we got a car without a working AC, I probably would not even notice. Now, if we were visiting in the summer months, it might be different. Also, we grew up in Florida in the days before AC, so we may be a bit more accustomed to the heat.

Some say rent from Budget or Hertz to avoid the local car rental companies additional $10/day insurance charges. They say to use the insurance provided by the credit card companies, but Budget and Hertz are $10 more expensive per day than the local companies. So it appears to be a wash. What is your suggestion as to who to use, local companies or the US Car Rental companies?

Hi, we're planning on going to Bonaire over Christmas. We have a 9 month old so any advice on traveling there with an infant would be appreciated :-) Thanks so much
