Renting a car while on vacation gives you the opportunity to explore the whole island. Yes, the island is only 37 square miles, but regular public transportation doesn’t run to some of best spots – especially at night (and hiring a car in St. Maarten is cheaper that taking a couple of daily taxi rides). Renting a car allows you to shop the duty-free stores in Philipsburg, browse the market stalls of Marigot, get to know some of our 37 beaches and enjoy a gourmet dinner in Grand Case.
