St. Maarten Car Rentals

no one deals like we do!A St. Maarten car rental is almost a must when visiting this southern Caribbean island by air or by cruise.

Car rental companies are concentrated in three areas -- Princess Juliana International Airport, the main cruise port at Philipsburg on the Dutch side of the island and the smaller airport at Grand Case near Marigot on the French side.

Although St. Maarten is a small island, the main points of interest are spread out around the island. Visitors will find easy access to all points using the numerous taxis and buses that are available.

However, a car rental makes extra sense for anyone planning to see more than one place, such as the town of Marigot, Orient Beach, etc.

In addition, visitors who are tempted to rent a motorcycle, moped or bicycle will find that the roads are narrow, use limited traffic signs and virtually no traffic lights, and are not entirely safe for those forms of transportation.

Here is a sampling of car rental companies in the three main locations:
