Rental cars


Can anyone recommend a good place to rent a car at the airport in St. Maarten? Are there many choices? And also what is the average price for an 8-day rental?

I suggest you not wait until you are at the airport to rent a car. Go on line to one of the discount sites, if you are staying at a timeshare and belong to II or RCI check their site or check your airline site for car rentals and book. When you arrive you will have your confirmation and all you need do is to stop at the booth and sign the rental agreement, then shuttle over to the car lot to pick up your car.

There are many agencies and you will hear many recommendations.

As for us, we always use Hertz. The Hertz on Sint Maarten includes the liability coverage in the quoted rate you get from any outside source so all you will need is the CDW/LDW coverage than most credit cards provide. Bes sure to check with your CC company to be sure they will cover you. If the do simply decline the coverage offered by the agency for CDW/LDW.

Prices vary from agency to agency and from season to season and car type - expect to pay $130-200 range plus tax -

Here are a small sampling of agencies

Just get a rental from Safari rentals at the airport. That's what we did last year and will do again this year. They're pretty good and pick u up right at the airport and take u to your car.

I always use Hertz. I can them for reservations over the Us phone number and the rate is always better than the internet quotes. Car is always ready when I get there.
