    The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...

    It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.

A Quick Guide to... Antigua Airport

VC Bird International airport is located in the north of the island overlooking Dutchman Bay. The airport is around 4 miles from Runaway Beach to the west, and around 10 miles northeast of Jolly Harbour and Coco Beach where many of the most popular resorts on the island are located. The airport is well connected to most of the main destinations on Antigua, and due to the relatively small size of the island it is within about half an hour of most hotels and resort areas.

Antigua Airport Car Hire Advice

Antigua is a phenomenal tourist destination, and it is too easy to fall into the trap of sticking to the beach at your resort without taking the opportunity to explore everything that the island has to offer. If you rent a car on Antigua, not only can you save money over the standard price of transfers to your hotel, but you will also have the freedom to explore the island at your own pace during your stay so that you can see many of the 300 or so beautiful beaches on the coast, or head to the town of St Johns to see the Spanish Market. You will need to arrange a permit for driving in the country, and this is available for $20.
