Car rental @ Airport

Any advice on which car rental company to use at PV Airport? We would prefer to use agent that parks its cars right at the airport instead of having to get a ride to pick up car somewhere else. We have rented before, but cannot remember which agency we used that was at airport - last time we had to be driven to office and then had to wait, etc. etc. Looking for convenience of picking up and dropping off. Thanks!

I don't believe the car rental people have any space at the airport, but if you reserve it with the airport location, you'll pay an extra 15% in federal tax, even if you're driven to the car.

Dollar has an office across the road and barely a block from the Pedestrian Bridge a five min. stroll, then drive back to the airport to get the rest of the group and your luggage.

When booking on-line for Dollar use the AV. FRANCISCO MEDINA ASCENCIO, #1728 - PVR001 address, that's the office across the road.

Thanks - we usually don't reserve ahead, but make inquiries (look for best prices) at the various desks when we get in - R U saying that we'd be better off to walk across the street when we get there?

Even lower price if you book on-line, but yes, 15% less across the road.

Prices accross from the aiport are fair. I booked online and the price for a VW bug conv was a 102. for the week unlimited KMS. For a compact auto w/AC worked out to around 140.00. We used Dollar rent a car. If you check online you will see several deals. It worked out around 100.00 less per week. Also prices are in US $ meaning for us canucks even a better deal. Good luck

Just checked Dollar on line & got a rate of $204 for VW last week in November.

And don't forget to tack on the insurances charges which are normally more than the rental!
