car rental in Ishigaki

we'll be traveling to Ishigaki in November for 4 days. I understand that we will need to obtain an international drivers license,any other requirements we need to be aware of? Is it easy to rent a car at the airport? or am i better off making a reservation from the states ahead of time?

thanks

You may of all ready booked your car but if not we have used OTS twice now and found the service and cars very good with thankfully no up-sell of anything.

You really only need a small car(of course dept on size of party) and the driving is soooooooo slow!!

Hi we rented the smallest car which was Toyota Aqua hybrid, cost was excellent as was the service, bus picks you up from the airport takes you the short ride to the office, sat nav was fine and the staff are helpful with directions to where you are staying.

We also decided to extend our rental by another 3 days, no problems and no silly fees and we paid the same cost as we originally booked the daily rate at. All that was needed was an international licence as well as your own licence.

We also took out the full insurance as the cost really was minimal for the full cover.

Oh and this was just last week, enjoy ishigaki and enjoy the very slow driving limits!

Sorry just seen your post!

Yes that's the price, we paid 5000y per day all in with full cover, excellent value and the car we hired in Naha was even cheaper (Nissan Note)

Yes that's why we booked it due to the promo, you really don't need anything larger for getting around and parking.

The boot, sorry trunk had two large suitcases and hand luggage as the seats went flat so no probs with the space.

For 5 days driving all over the island we spent 17000 y on Petrol which was great value.

Any other info just ask
