Rented a toyota rav4 in antigua. collision damage waiver was expensive so i got a separate policy before i went. this offered wider cover which is needed out there as lots of things still aren't insured under the hirer's cdv cover. the roads are terrible and punctures are very common. car was good. don't bother with a small vehicle as they just aren't suitable for the roads.
