    I think it's just after you turn right onto Ave. Barcelo coming from the airport. Right before Plaza San Juan on the right.

    I think Avis, Budget and Hertz are all sharing one building now. I'll check as I go by there today and confirm with you when I get home later.

    They've got one at a shared office right next to Wendy's at the Village. Their other office is as you head away from the airport just AFTER Plaza San Juan on the right. The building connects with Bici Centro. Can't miss it.

    are you flying in??? or are you already in P.C.??? There is a Budget kiosk in the Rental Car room at the airport, and if you book the car in advance they'll have the car there for you ... or not. (in high season they have been known to run out of cars... a pain in the behind.)

    Thank you!
    No I will be there in 2 weeks. I have always rented from Europcar but decided to try Budget this time
    as we had some issues with Europcar that we arent happy about.
    I choose not to pick it up at the airport because Im a woman travelling alone( I have done this many times to Punta Cana) and dont feel comfortable
    being seen at the airport picking up a rental car and driving to our condo. Too much talk of people being followed
    from airports. I will drop it off at the airport though when I leave

    the rentals are all the same rip off artists... add a percent here, a fee there... then you argue back and forth... but end up paying it anyway. It's the same old game. I use Budget because there is one guy there that (If I'm lucky enough for him to be on duty when I arrive), he'll honor the price as per the reservation ... BUT.. I've also been charged extra from other Budget agents. I've also been in the P.C. airport office where there are I think 5 or 6 desks of various rental companies, when there have been two other customers getting the same run around by other companies. welcome to paradise. LOL just have to laugh and move on.

    I'm always a proponent of being safe, and proactive with precautions, but to be honest I think you'll be pretty safe regardless. You'd be just as likely to run into trouble getting from the airport to the budget office at Coco Loco... the chances are low that you'll have any problem either way... just seems that it's more convenient to get the car there at the airport, but do what makes you feel safe.
