Default Cruising from Galveston, rental car ?

Anyone know of any rental car agencies that are open in Galveston?

All companies we've contacted have not re-opened there since Ike hit. Fellow cruisers from here in Louisiana wanted to rent a van to Galveston; then rent a van back, to avoid paying for parking and to be able to split the rental cost between 6 adults. They can't find a company close enough to the port.

Any other suggestions?

A million thanks!

I would check with enterprise. They advertise they will pick you up. Maybe they will come pick you up at port.

One other option is take the cruise transfer to the airport and rent a van. The transfer cost might be a issue. Check it with the TA

There never were many Rental Car agencies in Galveston. Only two and one of them was only part time. Not an easy place for auto rentals. There would be drop off fee for a van for sure as that would be even more unusual.
