Top tips for hiring a car in Saint Martin

  • In Saint Martin (also called St. Martin), the restriction applies only to children under the age of five who are not allowed to sit in the front of a vehicle. Instead, they should be securely seated in the appropriate restraint systems in the rear of the vehicle. However, for safety reasons, it is generally recommended to have all children ride in the back of the vehicle. If you are considering renting a car, it is advisable to check with your rental company regarding the availability of car seats.
  • The road conditions in St. Martin can vary from well-maintained highways to narrower, winding roads. In some areas, you may encounter potholes or uneven surfaces, so it's important to drive with caution and be prepared for occasional road repairs. That is why having something like a Jeep or an SUV can be a good choice because it lets you make sure you are ready for any road conditions, including the heavy rains that can sometimes occur.
  • While there are means to get your rental car to any other islands in the area, the fact that there is abundant ferry service that offers speed and clean and comfortable rides make island hopping in this part of the world so popular. It is easy to park your rental at one of the ferry terminals on the island, such as the Marigot Ferry Terminal, and make a day trip somewhere else or just drop off your rental if you are heading to a new island for good and easily get a new rental at your next destination.
  • Having a car in St. Martin can provide several advantages, such as the freedom to explore the island at your own pace and convenience. You can visit remote beaches, hidden gems, and lesser-known attractions that may not be easily accessible by public transportation. Having a car allows you to easily travel from one location to another without being dependent on fixed schedules or waiting for public transportation.
  • Book your rental car in Saint Martin at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
