Location information for Oranjestad

Introduction

Oranjestad, the capital of Aruba, was built around Fort Zoutman which dates from the eighteenth century. The fort is one of the city's main attractions, together with the Willem III Tower and of course the duty-free shops.

Population

The city has 35,000 inhabitants making it the island's largest city.

Location

Oranjestad is located on Aruba's south coast, in the western part of the island. The bay on which the city is located is called Bay of Horses because in the old days many horses were shipped from Aruba to the neighboring Curaçao. Aruba lies in the Caribbean, just north of Falcon Peninsula which is part of Venezuela.

Economy

Oranjestad's port lies on a deep channel and therefore plays an important role in the import, export and transit of goods. Most commercial dealings are with countries in South America and the United States. For a long time, oil refinery was a pillar of the economy due to the vicinity of the oil country Venezuela. Most refineries have been dismantled, but there's one left: Coastal Oil Company. Tourism is the main source of income. It's a popular holiday destination (especially for Americans) and many cruise ships moor in the port. Aruba is also a financial center, aimed at offshore banking.

Airports

Aruba Queen Beatrix International Airport is situated almost 3 kilometers southeast of Oranjestad. It's easily reachable by rental car as it lies directly along the island's main road.

Public Transport

Minibuses run within the city and to the island's second city, San Nicholas. The company Arubus also maintains this connection and there are regular buses to several other places on the island. Buses run from 4 a.m. until 1.30 a.m.

Traffic and Parking

Traffic in Oranjestad has increased significantly in recent years. Although the government has somewhat improved the infrastructure, there are still traffic jams in the city. Especially near the so-called Free Zone (duty-free zone) it can be extremely busy and difficult to find a parking place for your rental car. Oranjestad is the main junction of Aruba; the island's main road (road 1) runs south of the city.

Hotels

Aruba is a popular holiday island and therefore has no shortage of accommodation. In the capital you'll find branches of international hotel chains, but also small family hotels. On the beaches you'll mainly find holiday resorts. Aruba draws tourists both in winter and in summer. We therefore advise booking your hotel room well in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
