Company Profile

A locally owned Puerto Rican Company

There are many car rental companies in Puerto Rico to choose from. What sets Charlie Car Rental apart from other companies? We are locally owned and, as such, we must be committed to offer the best cars at the best rates and with the best service infrastructure possible. We live here, we must be available and accountable for all the products and services we offer.

Charlie Car Rental was founded in September 1982. Initially, we had approximately 72 units. Since the beginning, we have been developing the concept "FIRST IN SERVICE". Following this concept, our goal is to offer our clients’ excellent vehicles and excellent service... no less.

In its first 6 years, Charlie Car Rental grew at a 200% rate per year. The fleet grew to 500 units in 1987. 10 years later, Charlie Car Rental grew to over 1,450 units between its three branches in Isla Verde, Condado, and the San Juan International Airport.

Expanding our Island Service Areas


Due to growing demand and coastal development resulting from population growth and an active tourism industry in Puerto Rico’s western regions, Charlie Cars opened a new office/terminal complex located in Aguadilla’s international, Rafael Hernandez Airport in November of 2008. This unit now services all car rental needs for the towns of Aguadilla, Rincon, Isabela and Mayaguez.


The most beautiful sunsets in Puerto Rico is the first reason to make the trip to Rincon, a town known for its amazing twilight colors. This surfing town has it all. For car rental in Rincon, Charlie Car Rental has an office right where the action is! We are he largest, locally owned car rental company in Puerto Rico.


In 2010, Charlie Cars expanded to service this dynamic urban area, by opening it’s third major Car Rental terminal on the Island, in Caguas.

In the last decade, the city of Caguas has been experiencing an economic and cultural renaissance. Major Commercial and infrastructure projects totaling over $100 million have been built and developed. A major “Downtown” renovation has been undertaken featuring historical architectural restorations and retail walking malls. The recently built “Caguas Real Four Points Hotel” features a 12,000 sq ft casino and 18 hole golf course.

New Customer Services

In mid 2010, Charlie Cars, partnering with local, major insurance companies now offers a Replacement Program. This is a program where anyone who has insurance and gets into an accident can get a replacement vehicle thru us, as long as the insurance company provides that coverage.

Our Promise

Charlie Car Rental is committed to offering the best product at the best prices, always. If we do not deliver this, you will be able to talk directly to the President of the Company... because we are a local company. This sets us apart and guarantees customer satisfaction.
