Car Rentals

Vehicle rental companies may charge for additional drivers. Manual transmission (stick shift) is the norm for most vehicles, but automatic transmission vehicles are available in a limited supply, but usually cost more to rent. Automatics should definitely be reserved well in advance to insure availability.

Although many rental companies are located at the airport, or just across the street, others are off-premises, but do supply airport or hotel pickup and delivery.
