My car was old and it smelled funny. Paint on car was scratched and not shiny brand new. A little disappointed. Service was great though. Fast and efficient service for both pick up and drop off. 3.5 stars out of 5.

Flexibility on the return was excellent. Normally the office opens at 8:00 a.m., but we had an 8:30 flight, so we had to return the car by ~6:30. They don’t have a drop-box (which would be helpful!), but they arranged for the security guard to drive us to the air terminal. This eased a lot of stress about how we would return the car on-time, as we were staying across the island and would have had difficulty had we had to return the car the previous day.Condition of the car was fair - many scratches and scuffs. However, I think that’s simply one of the realities of having a car on an island with roads that are narrow and in poor condition overall.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 23 2017
I was pleased particularly with the fact that I was provided a GPS at no extra charge. Without a GPS, I would not have been able to navigate throughout the island.Everything was perfect.

Good Value... Very Friendly StaffTransaction was quick start to finish. Short line moved quickly. Hertz staff was very courteous. Car was clean and ready to go! Will definitely rent from them again on our next trip to St Maarten.

Our #1 Choice for St MaartenShuttle just outside of SXM Airport takes you to the close-by but drivable distance to pick up your car. Always reserve your car prior to your trip for best price online at Thrifty.com, finding an online discount code for example 10% off. For insurance, if you have an American Express, sign up through AmX prior to your trip for a one-time charge of $24.95 on your American Express upon car rental charge; It covers everything except Liability, for the duration of your rental time (ours was 2 weeks) and safely decline Thrifty's daily insurance charges. (If you think your credit card covers you automatically, you may be very surprised just how little those free included coverage actually covers!) Bring a Contract copy with you. Thrifty is pleasant and they have decent prices. You can find slightly cheaper deals elsewhere, but beware of the extra charges others will likely add on.It is customary in St Maarten to sign a blank credit card receipt, just in case the car is damaged or stolen, etc. But they all do this. After numerous years of rentals through Thrifty, we've never had any add-ons we did not expect.

Just okWhile they didn't have my car ready, they gave me another one. The car was cheap relative to others. Overall it was ok and what I expected in the Caribbean.Car wasn't ready for me. Car was not really clean. The van to and from the airport was not very clean and they jammed us into the vehicle.

Exactly as agreedI have been going to Sint Maarten for years renting cars. This year Alamo provided the car exactly as per my priceline agreement. No hard sell on insurance and they gave me a car tat had fewer than normal miles.

Older cars, not maintainedThe price seemed good.First car had serious problems: brakes grinding, brake light on, check engine light on. Returned the car to get another... second car needed tune-up or something, because it kept mis-firing and jerking.

It worked like a charm. Everything was on time. Good pickup service. And good people. Would use Alamo next year when I return.
3.6 MediocreMar 20 2017
Very disappointingNothingVery expensive to drive a heap -- multiple scrapes and dings, windshield wipers were smeary, tire pressure light came on within first day, check engine light came on on third day, AC was weak (and if turned up made a continuous clicking sound that wouldn't quit until it was turned back down. Drive like a bucket of bolts, and cost nearly $700 for a week (with insurance, which seemed important given the condition of the car, not wanting anything blamed on me). They also take a $750 deposit against your credit card, which they return to you if they deem there is no further damage. We took pictures of the car before leaving the lot, and got that money back.

Try somewhere else if you want a place with servicGot a free upgrade...because they did not have our car in.They asked the hotel so they could reach me to replace the car, then decided I should just stop back in.....stop my vacation to see if they have the car.....not to be a brat, but customer service is their job. I called to check, and they did not pick up or have an answering machine.....don't expect much help. When I returned the car, they said I owed an extra day, and I should check my paper work. I said no, and made them look at the electronic reservation. They copied the item down wrong...keep the reservation information handy as they might try to get an extra day out of you.
10.0 ExcellentOct 30 2016
Very good value. Car functioned very well.Car (Jeep minivan) was bigger than I wished I'd rented for a small Carribbean island. Discovered the check engine light was on and in concern took it back to the rental office where I was assured not to worry....they had checked out the vehicle thoroughly before rental.

I had ordered a "standard" car, since we were 2 couples with a considerable amt. of luggage & we recieved an intermediate Kia, in which the driver's side door handle literally broke off the door the second time we opened that door, & we were charged for it "because we broke it" by normally opening the door !! They did exchange the car for a similar one the next day.

1.9 HorribleJul 26 2021
We were giving a smaller car than what we paid for. The employee said they didn't have any other cars to give us. The car had been wrecked several times. The car didn't have much power so it didn't perform well on the hilly roads. Very disappointed.
4.0 OkayJun 27 2021
The shuttle guys are very nice and friendly. The employees behind the desk are not very friendly. Anger issues (I guess) but they're not very friendly and honestly they're quite rude.We got a flat tire and the spare was flat also. When had to get our hotel people to help us out because the road side assistance said it would be an hour or more before we received help. Too hot and humid to sit there for an hour. After getting air put into the tour, we took the car to them to let them know the spare is flat and we won't up to a flat tire. They looked at us and questioned us as if it was our fault or as is we were lying about both tires being flat. As if we flew all the way to St. Maarten just to flatten two tires. What would we get out of doing that? Our last day to return the car the guy argued with us saying we owed them $270 BUT we had already paid for the car a few weeks prior. So the man says with an angry attitude, "look Mr. "So & So" you owe us $270 & it will be charged to your card on file. We said our name isn't "......". Turns out he pulled the wrong person's papers. He finds our paper and shows that we have no balance. He says "oh you're good to go". I said that's it? He says yes. I said no sorry, no nothing. He has a slight embarrassed look and says sorry & starts ruffling through the papers as if he was too busy to give us a proper apology. Upon our arrival this same employee was giving another couple with a broken car alarm the same stinky attitude. Honestly all of the employees attitudes are horrible. The price for the car for the week was GREAT! Customer service with Mexcar needs IMPROVEMENT.

Don’t be fooled by the cheap pricing!! This Nu car rental is not at the Airport, so you will not see signs for them. Another nice guy from a major agency called them for me to pick us up. Then they pick you up in your car, drive you around the airport to a 3rd party agency acting as Nu. It’s a rinky dink place, and not written anywhere, it’s a mandatory purchase of LDW for $6/day!! Also they gave a small economy car as a full size car! In hindsight, reserve from a major car rental.
8.0 ExcellentMay 5 2021
Easy to book and price was under $50 for the day in smallest car offered.The pick up was a bit to do, when I arrived no one was at the office and I couldn’t reach anyone by phone but the neighboring car rental attendant called them and they arrived quickly. In their defense, I had only booked the car a little over an hour before I arrived. The car was moderately clean and easy check out and back in. I would rent from them again if I need.
