Back from Moorea with some interresting fact findings about car rental.
I have for quite a while suggested using Avis on Moorea for the excellent service received, the long stay discount and their new fleet of cars. Some posters have at late indicated lower rates for Albert car rental.
The difference comes in the insurance coverage. Albert car are only covered third party liability. you crash the car, you own a piece of art on the island (to be paid for of course).
Avis basic rental has a coverage with a $400 deductible (an additional coverage for no deductible is available too).
Avis car rentals can also be taken on the ferry and are covered for both islands.
Value for the money is not always the least expensive....
Food for thoughts ,
