Hello: Can anyone tell me if it's better to rent a car at the international airport or in Belize City? We have 4 hours downtime between our flight landing and our friend flight and then we are heading west. We have time to go into Belize City to pick up a car if its a better deal to rent in town.

By renting at the airport, you'll save the BZ$50 taxi fare into Belize City.

Here are links to lists of car rental companies...

Most of the larger car rental companies like Budget and Crystal have locations both at the international airport and in Belize City. Their prices are essentially the same, though a couple of places charge a nominal (seems like US$5) extra fee for airport pickup.

Some of the smaller companies such as Buy-Belize.com don't spring for an airport location and may have lower rates, though often you have to pay for a taxi to their location in the city. Keep in mind that local companies may not accept CDW waiver from your credit card company, adding US$10 to $15 a day for the rental.

You may want to get a quote from several places and see which one is lowest in total, taking into account daily or weekly rental, CDW and other fees, taxi, etc.

Also, take a good look at the renal car itself. Look at the tires, under hood for leaks, condition of belts etc. I will gladly pay more for a car that is mechanicly sound.
