If not, Villa Car Rental will arrange for your group to be met at the airport by a van and driver and transport you to your villa where your rental car will be waiting. The cost for this service is $60 each way.
Rates include public liability and property damage, fire and theft. Collision Damage Insurance must be purchased at the rate of US$15/day on all vehicles.
