What type of rental car should you rent on St Martin? Well that depends. St. Martin is a magical island of scenic vistas, fabulous beaches, gourmet restaurants and enthralling entertainment. The best part is that the island is only 37 square miles and roads make it easy to navigate. If you rent a car, be sure to hit some of the hot spots on and around the island. Plan a day trip to the shops of Marigot or Phillipsburg, have a waterside lunch in Marina Royale, hop a boat for some snorkeling off Pinel Island and try out all the glorious St. Martin beaches to pick your favorite. When night falls try a goMarurmet meal in Grand Case or Nettle Bay, and then head out to one of the exciting casinos, nightclubs or beach bars that abound on the island.
The best rental car depends on your style or sensibility as well as your vacation type. Are you on a romantic St Martin honeymoon or a Caribbean family vacation. Here are our recommendations to select the best fit car for you.
The Explorer Adventurer Type
Try a Jeep Wrangler with a soft top for the perfect vehicle to explore the island. Your Jeep will allow you to enjoy the warm sunshine and sweeping vistas of St. Martin.
The Finer Things in Life
If true luxury is important to you, rent a sporty convertible like the Ford Mustang to tool around the island.
The Ideal Island Choice
A small SUV like the Daihatsu Terios is easy to drive and provides extra clearance for days when you go off the paved roads for an island adventure, making it the ideal island choice. There is plenty of space for water sports equipment, beach chairs and towels and a packed picnic lunch.
For the ultimate in value, the Hyundai Accents fills the bill. This model makes it easy to park around town and drive around the island, while providing enough space for guests. A ideal balance between cost and quality.
Choose the Hyundai I10 to zip around the island in a smaller model and fit into tight parking spaces, no problem. And, the price is right starting at around $100 per week.
Group Outings- The Family Reunion
When you need the space for a family or group outing, choose a Honda Pilot, Hyundai H-2 or Dodge Caravan. Then pile in for a memorable St. Martin adventure.
If feeling good in your rented vehicle is just as important as looking good, try the sporty options of a Volkswagen Beetle or convertible Copen. Then set off to explore in style.
