PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Whether travelers are preparing for a business trip, planning a romantic honeymoon or enjoying a family vacation to the Caribbean, they have the opportunity to rent the perfect automobile to suit their needs. With Budget Car Rental facilities conveniently located throughout the Caribbean, traveling around the tropical islands is a breeze.
