Officially known as Gregorio Luperón International Airport, POP is a short drive away from many of the Dominican Republic’s most iconic beaches and tourist attractions.
If you’re planning to visit some of the Dominican Republic’s more remote beaches, it’s recommended you rent a vehicle with 4-wheel drive and a good suspension. If you’re planning to stay in urban areas, it’s better to get a compact vehicle as some streets can be quite narrow and often double as parking areas.
Here are the top three rental car companies at Puerto Plata Airport, ranked according to most affordable, best for families and best luxury option.
Travelers looking for cheap car rentals in Puerto Plata Airport should head straight to InterRent. Easily the most affordable car rental company at POP, InterRent receives generally positive reviews from past customers. Renters remarked on the ease of locating the InterRent kiosk, the friendliness of the staff, as well as the short time it took to pick up and drop off the vehicle. Unlike many budget car rental companies, InterRent accepts third-party insurance coverage provided by some credit cards; however, you’ll need a letter from your credit card provider stating that their coverage includes the Dominican Republic.
Travelers looking for a family-friendly vehicle out of Puerto Plata Airport have an affordable option with Europcar. Europcar’s fleet includes many full-size sedans, SUVs and pickup trucks with plenty of space for the whole family. Whether you’re planning to go off-roading or stick to the highways, Europcar’s fleet has many vehicle options for you and your family to choose from. Infant, child and toddler seats are available upon reservation. Located in the main terminal building of Puerto Plata Airport, Europcar is just steps away from your arrival gate.
If you’re planning on exploring the Dominican Republic in a premium luxury vehicle, Avis is your best option. Avis’s fleet includes many luxury rental cars like Mazda CX5s and Ford Explorers for off-road adventures and Audi Q3s for cruising highways in style. Coming in a close second for the best option for luxury rental cars in Puerto Plata Airport is Alamo. Alamo also offers Nissan Pathfinders and X-Trails as well as Chevrolet Tahoes, although its prices were slightly higher than Avis.
