Do the car rentals meet you at the airport and you can return it there when you depart? We used to have a guy who did just that. He would meet you at the airport and ride with you to his office and then you would leave him there and when you left he would meet you at the airport.

We used http://www.rentautomax.com/en/ the last two trips. Their cars are at the airport. We met them outside and were in our car in no time. Drop off is also at the airport. They are still in business. I think they are average priced--you might find less expensive or more expensive. Definitely reliable.

Been using Kenny's Car Rental for many years and his service is exemplary. Pick up and return is at the airport. Any issues with vehicle and he is there at a moment's notice. Find contact info under SXM TTOL sponsors.

To be clear, all car rental folks meet you at the airport. The vast majority of them have either a van, or the car you will be renting, at the airport, and they transport you a short distance to their office to sign the paperwork. On the return, most have you come by their office and pick them up, and they drive you to the airport in the car and then drop you and your luggage off. Basically all the rental places are very close to the airport, so it's not a big time difference regardless.

Actually it is a big difference. Someone like Lesley with Kenny’s is much easier and quicker. You don’t have to get in a crowded van and stand in line once you get to the rental place.

It depends, I don't usually have to wait in line at the rental place, I usually wait outside in the sun, and let Eric do the dirty work!!! laugh

Yes that was the way it was with me. While my wife enjoyed the sun. Just like Kenny’s better!

You will never regret if you choose Lesley Bruce, Kenny's Car Rental.

I have used Leisure Car Rental for the last several trips. They pick me up at the airport in the car I will be renting, take me to their office (about sixty seconds away), I sign the paperwork and am on my way. When returning the car, I drop by their office and they drive me to the airport. I have found their prices to be very competitive. After the third rental, they start offering a deep discount. I'll be using them again in June (assuming Divi is open by then).

Hi, our approach has to take a cab to our vaca rental and have AAA [or your choice] drop the car the next day at an agreed time. Your choice to either drive the car back or again our approach is to have AAA pick up the car and the next day we cab back to the airport
For a cab we use Wilfred Brooks - after a day of traveling, to SXM, nice to not have to worry about the drive, like to catch up with Wilfred and he'll stop along the way if requested.
Same on the way back, this last winter we did our Rhum & Marigot market shopping on the way back to the airport with Wilfred , that saved us a beach day!

Regardless, enjoy
J&B
