Grand Cayman Rental Car Round Up
If you will be visiting Grand Cayman and staying near Rum Point, Cayman Kai, Old Man Bay, or East End, you’ll certainly need to make a reservation with one of the several Grand Cayman rental car agencies.
Andy’s Rent-a-Car is one popular option for renting a car in Grand Cayman.
Your first decision to make is this: Do you want to rent your car at the airport and start driving immediately? Or would you prefer to be shuttled to your vacation rental, where your car will be waiting?
Below is a list of rental car agencies located at Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM).
Avis Cico Car Rentals
Description: Having been in business for over 50 years, Avis Cico was one of the first rental car agencies on the island. Their fleet is 100% non-smoking. They have special rates for cruise ship passengers and offer a courtesy van pickup at the cruise ship arrival pier.
Economy Car Rental
Description: Economy Car Rentals was founded in 1990, beginning with a humble fleet of only 27 cars. Now with a current fleet of over 160 quality Hyundai vehicles. We guarantee the newest, cleanest and most reliable rental cars available anywhere on the island. We’re also happy to assist you in any way we can, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries about our offerings.
Description: Hertz Rent-a-Car has been around forever. Most of us have seen their TV commercials throughout the years. Yep, they’ve got a location in Grand Cayman as well. Since you’re shopping around, check on rates by CLICKING HERE.
Driving on the left and navigating roundabouts can be intimidating for some people. So, perhaps you want to rent a car, but would rather not make the initial drive from the airport to your vacation rental. Those of you staying in the outer districts like North Side and East End can practice driving around on the quiet side of the island with no traffic before you venture into Georgetown and Seven Mile Beach.
For you travelers, I highly recommend McCurley’s Tours. They will pick you up at the airport, make a quick stop for groceries, and shuttle you to the condo where your rental car will be waiting. They will then pick you up at your Cayman vacation rental and drive you back to the airport for your departure.
McCurley’s Tours and Car Rentals
Website: McCurley’s on TripAdvisor
Description: McCurley’s is a local, family owned business that’s been around for something like 18 years now. They don’t have a website and they seem to respond better to phone calls than emails. Regardless of their old school methods, they stay quite busy, so contact them in advance to make your reservation.
In conclusion, renting a car will give you the freedom to explore this small and beautiful island. If you want to rent at the airport, we are fond of Andy’s Car Rentals, but there are many options to choose from. If you’d rather take a shuttle to your vacation rental, then McCurley’s Tours is the way to go.
