    Default Car Hire in Punta Cana

    Hi!

    I have read lots of topics now on car hire in DR and have a few questions. I'll be travelling to DR on the 1st of Feb from the UK with a friend. Looking to travel around, starting in Bayahibe for some diving, a few days in Santo Domingo and then heading towards the north coast. So we decided renting a car would be our best bet for getting around.

    I understand that the key to car hire in DR is the Third Party Liability insurance. Which is a requirement of all companies in DR. A lot of the complaints around car hire in the DR seem to relate to this. But from looking around Alamo list this TPL insurance on their site when booking as a compulsory addition and the price reflects this. Others it is not mentioned at all. Also the cost quoted across various forums varies from $9 per day up to $30.

    So I was wondering which companies offer the insurance at $9? Also can anyone recommend which company to use? I am leaning towards Alamo but don't want to be stung and pay again if this is a likely occurrence? The most sensible option seems to be to book with no additional insurance and then take out the extra required insurance on collection. Or if anyone can give any other advice please do let me know!

    Many thanks, Will

    Thanks, I don't mind paying for insurance though, from what I've read Casa de Conductor is a very good idea for a gringo!
