We've been using Summer Set for years. Older cars, usually have some scars on them, but no worries about being charged for damages, reasonable rates, we always pay cash. Claude Arnell is the owner/manager. He has an office in cupecoy/lowlands and one in grand case. The Cupecoy # is 599 54 54138, his cell is 599 55 70155 country code is 011.
Good luck

We've been using Lesley Bruce of Kenny's Car Rentals - he has every level of car from older to new and prices in direct respect to the car in question. I've never had one that was a real rice burner and have always gotten good pricing and very good service from Lesley. I particularly like that he facilitates airport pick up of the rental which is a big plus to me.

You can e-mail him for a quote at:

and assuming the island internet is up and running, he will get back to you as soon as he can, I'm sure.

I have found Lesley Bruce to be a very honourable man and would recommend him as well as Donico of Competition Car Rental - a referral from Lesley when he was not able to look after us. Be wary there are a few rental firms that have left a number people stranded at the airport
