Any recommendations ?

Not hired a car from the airport in about 5 years, so need a bit of advice on this one.

We always book online with Autoreisen and never have any problems. Whatever you do, do NOT book Goldcar or Orlando, so many problems reported on tripadvisor. A lot of people like Cabrera Medina, say that they're reliable too, but we've never used them as we are content to stay with Autoreisen.

Have used Cabrera Medina for the last 8 years or so with no problems. They also have offices all over the island so any little issues I have had (like how to turn on the air conditioning) have been sorted out locally rather than going back to the airport.

Yet another big MINUS for Gold car.
They've ripped off our guests this evening.

I'm amazed that Goldcar are still in business given their horrific reputation. I have two friends that got stung by them.

Auto Martinas for me. Family owned company, based in CT but they will bring the car to the airport for you. Good service, good cars. I've been using them for 13 years with no problems at all!

Legally you need a photo licence, bearing the European stars logo, or an international driving permit. The hire companies don't seem to mind if you have the old green paper licence but it might be a different matter if the police stop you for anything.

Well I got my new license, done it all online. Got it through in days, they used the pic from my passport. Was so easy.

Auto reissen booked, £228 for 2 weeks car hire.

47 days and counting. :lol:
