    Great way to get around
    I rented a scooter for 4 days here. It was clean, fast, and relatively easy to get the hang of. By the second day I felt very comfortable driving, and it was ok to have a passenger sitting behind as well. Friendly staff. Fair pricing. Would rent here again if returning.

    Great Fun and great Service
    Great FUN and great SERVICE! I live on St. Martin for almost 25 years, but due to COVID I was wondering about a fun thing to do for my daughter's 12th birthday, without compromising safety. Spontaneously I came up with the idea to rent an ATV. We called Rent a scoot and even though they were officially closed, Eva did not hesitate a moment to leave her home and meet us. 20 minutes later we were off to lots of fun and laughter exploring all corners of our island. The ATVs have an automatic transmission and are easy to operate even for first timers. When we returned, the paperwork was handelnd in a minute and we immediately made another reservation for the following weekend. Service like this does not happen too often in the Caribbean, but is highly appreciated! THANK YOU 😊

    ATV Rental
    We decided to rent ATV's and met both of "the girls". They were great! Worked within our schedule and even picked the ATV up for us as we decided to stop, close by their shop, for a few drinks and didn't want to drive the ATV back. While it was a bit scary driving all over the island on an ATV, we eventually got the hang of it and had a blast. They were both awesome and accommodating and went out of their way for us. While we were a last minute rental and on a Sunday, they didn't make us feel un-welcomed, like the other rental companies. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

My buddy and I visited St Martin on our way back home to St Thomas from a vacation in the states. I mention this because we are used to island living and all of its surprises, so we are very easily pleased and even poor customer service we can get over easily.....but listen to our story so we can save you!

Our experience started off great - walked up to the scooter shack, asked to rent scooters, gave ID blah blah ...normal stuff. They then asked for a $1000 dollar deposit for EACH scooter. We thought this was a bit odd, and mentioned it to the lady working the booth so she said she would only do a $1500 deposit instead. Saying ah what the heck, we went ahead and forfeited our Visa card and carried on. The scooters I will say are in great condition and the best way to get around SXM. At the end of our first night I locked my scooter to a light pole using the lock that rent a scoot provided and thought that I couldn't park it anywhere better than right at the hotel where tons of other guest had their cars parked.

Woke up the next day - scooter gone! Someone had broken the lock and taken the entire bike and helmet. The police found the lock that had been broken and it showed me how cheap the lock is. All it is is a plastic casing as a reviewer where the cable enters ....easy to break with a flathead screwdriver.

From there the police tell me that I need to file a police report in person at the station. Cool, I can do that. But first since I have no cell signal in SXM I have to make my way over to the scooter place to let them know what happened. The lady at the shack seemed shocked, but made a reference to her boss, who was not there. She put me on the phone with another lady who ended up showing up at the shack and asked me to go to the police station to file a report. Being my only full day on SXM to explore the island, I worked with them and told her no problem.

3 hours later I return to the shack with police report and the remains of the broken lock. At this point I still have not spoken to or seen the owner, but the ladies told us he requires that they keep the deposit. The ladies told us they were going to charge our $1500 deposit since we did not return the scooter, despite the fact we were there holding their cheap broken lock in our hands along with a completed police report. They demanded that we provide them our passports to make copies. They declared that they have no insurance and only offered a "sorry".

Now being without transportation for the remainder of our day they told us we were not allowed to use a scooter again, but said that we could RENT an ATV. Having no other option at the moment we handed over more money to the shack and carried on at 4 pm to enjoy what's left of our only day on island. Immediately once we got on the ATV we noticed it was a death machine. Brake levers were stuck, only the rear foot pedal worked, but minimally. The alignment was out of tune so we had to forcefully hold the handle bars to keep from turning into traffic the entire time we were under way.

Bottom line....this place is shady and offers no customer service at all and is now $1700 richer off of us in one day!!!!! 1500 deposit and 200 rental fee.

Save yourself because this was an event that was out of our control, we had used the locks they provided, did everything right and ended up spending a lot of money!!!!!

My husband and I went to Sint Maarten just last week and thought that driving a scooter would be a great way to experience the island. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to rent it again later in the week. This is hands down the best way to see Sint-Maarten. Not only was the experience with the scooter a wonderful one, working with the owner, Nastia, was also one as well. I would recommend this to anyone, or couple looking to experience ST Martin in the best way possible.

My co-worker and I rented a scooter and a four-wheeler for the day and used them to go all around the island. It was a great way to get around and see all the things. Bring a credit card for the deductible and for some reason cash to pay for the actual rental.

I rented a scooter from Rent-A-Scoot for 3 weeks and recommend them for your scooter or ATV rental in SXM. When I got a flat tire the scooter was replaced immediately. The rates are good and better long term and the scooters are in good reliable condition with no problems for the duration of my stay. The staff are friendly and helpful and a scooter is a great way to tour the island. Drive safe.

We had decided to rent a scooter before going on our trip and came across Rent a Scoot when checking out nearby restaurants. The location is great if staying at Simpson Bay. We opted for a three wheel version which we had never seen before and although heavier to handle, I felt more stable as the passenger (we are early 60's).
Ended up using for 4 days, the price was affordable and we saw much more of the island than we would have in a car. Visited all beaches, parking was very easy, we even went up Pic Paradis (till road becomes unnegotiable in any form of transportation!) the highest point of Island. Despite concern about the hills the scooter got us everywhere! Would definitely recommend Rent a Scoot, very good equipment, helpful and great to deal with. Thanks for the good time.
