I am not sure as to type of car, would think an intermediate should do. We have used Amigo in the past and they have provided excellent service. You could always email them and ask them what size car would acommodate what you described. http://amigocar.com/ They have always been prompt in replying to my emails. Even on Sunday :)

We rented a car from Royal and they were waiting for us at the airport when our plane landed. Took us to there store and in 3o minutes we were on our way. We had a car for 6 days and stayed 9, they picked the car up at the hotel for us. Will use them again

We rented a minivan when we had 4 adults. Mainly because of the luggage issue; we didn't want to take a chance that a smaller vehicle wouldn't fit 4 large suitcases.

Check prices at Paylesscar.com. I reserved a mid-size car for 4 of us for $224.33 for 7 days (used my PaylessPerks membership to save a few $$). Not sure what car we'll end up with, it states "Passat or similar". Whatever it is, we'll make it work as we have in the past . .lol. Payless is not located at the airport, however their shuttle info states . . .

Shuttle Information:

Reina Beatrix Airport in Aruba. Shuttle service is provided to and from the airport. Upon your arrival, and after claiming your baggage, a Payless representative will meet you at the airport arrival lobby. The representative will be holding a sign with your name.

You may have noticed that all the posters mention shuttle and pick-up services...this is to avoid a very punitive airport tax, which ultimately effects the cost of your rental.....FYI
