Car Rental Antigua
If you intend to explore Antigua a car is a must to make the most of the experience, with bumpy and potholed roads a 4×4 is a good idea if your budget allows.
When we got to Antigua at first we intended to have a relaxing beach holiday but the temptation to explore the beautiful island soon turned or thoughts us into arranging a car rental to get around. There are many car rental companies to choose from and we found all those that we contacted responded promptly. We decided to go with TG Car Rental due to the availability of the car we wanted and the no deposit requirement. We’d found from previous experience that you have to be very careful with car rental deposits, especially where road conditions on the car mean wear and tear are more likely to occur.

The car we chose was a Toyota Rav 4, not the most adventurous of 4×4’s but a reliable beast on Antiguan roads. It also had the added bonus of good air conditioning which a must in the hot Caribbean climate. TG Car Rentals delivered the car to our hotel along with the license required to drive it, he was very relaxed with regards to any minor damage that might occur when driving in Antigua and explained they had fully comprehensive insurance for all hires, we still took care of the car though. The car itself while having a few bumps and bruises was in a good condition and we felt very safe driving it throughout our trip.
