View Full Version : Is telerin still around?

07-16-2014, 11:07 AM
I emailed them over a week ago with no response. Does anyone know if they are still operating?

Used them May 23rd-June 7th this year. Sometimes email takes awhile, but over a week is pushing it....

Anyone else know?

I rented from Poppy from July 26 - August 2 when we first got here and my car was still in customs. Telerin is definitely still here and with good service. I emailed Poppy on July 31 and got a prompt (next day) reply.

Poppy is my girlfriend! I hope she is still in business as we have a rental booked with her in Oct....

With regards to Telerin and their drop off service at the airport, what happens if your flight is delayed late into the evening?

We fly in from Toronto Canada and the easiest (and cheapest) route is to fly direct to Curacao and then take an Insel flight over. Insel is about as reliable as snow on Christmas, so there are (and have been) often several delays. Would they track my flight info and still be there if my flight was delayed?

Poppy has a job at the airport aswell, and gets all the flight information as it comes out. Someone will be there when you arrive.

Booked today at this marcolva@hotmail.com (marcolva@hotmail.com) and got a confirmation reply within hours.
The other telerin@bonairelive.com (wlmailhtml:{216460E5-3B16-49D3-B23C-89B22B5CC55E}mid://00000047/!x-usc:mailto:telerin@bonairelive.com) got no response for days.
We have used Poppy for several years and will continue to use her excellent business.

I just heard from a good friend on Bonaire who recently talked to Poppy. Apparently Poppy is having lots of email problems with her telerin@Bonairelive.com email address. She is asking that messages be sent to her new Telerin email address telerinbonaire@gmail.com and cc her personal email account marcolva@hotmail.com.

Rented from her over New Year for 2 weeks and she responded promptly by email (I think I used 2 email addresses for her when I emailed her, thanks to this forum) and we were met at the airport by a guy with a sign with our names on it and were on our way in minutes. We returned the truck to short term parking per her instructions with no problems. By the way, the truck was in great shape and we had no problems with it at all. It was fairly new and everything worked great. We will definitely use Poppy from now on. We saved alot over 2 weeks as we have Amex premium car insurance that covers trucks, so we could avoid the CDW with Poppy. We used another company in the past, but they no longer accept Amex. We are converts. Our hour-plus wait in the car rental lines at the airport are a thing of the past AND we can use our Amex insurance, which is much less than CDW on island. Believe the people on this forum that rave about her. Thanks, Poppy!

Thanks for the email problems post. We used one of the 'preferred' email addresses and got our confirmation within hours.

No response from Poppy on any of the emails. Still hoping.

She was traveling when I wrote her last week re: our rental truck. Be a bit patient. I'm sure she'll be in touch.

I got a confirmation, but still no quote. I have a little over a month to go. Let's hope it all goes well. :)

Here is an email that Poppy says will always work...I just reached her with it.

I heard from her last night. If you still have not heard from her, send her another email. :) (1 month 4 days - but who is counting?)

Just wanted to chime in. It's definitely worth getting in touch with Poppy. We used Telerin last year and were extremely happy with everything. The truck was waiting for us even when our flight in was delayed by at least a half hour. The truck ran fine with no issues to speak of. The bill was more than fair. I just wish Telerin also stocked a few sub-compact cars (perhaps would be a bit cheaper and certainly easier to park in downtown).
