Winter rates start at December 15th.
ARRIVING AT THE AIRPORT
Once you passed through immigration and picked up your luggage, walk through the exit and enter the Arrival Hall. As soon as you go through the sliding doors, look straight ahead: there are several car rental booths, with Dollar/Thrifty occupying the most convenient one right next to the main-exit of the building. Provide the attendant with your rental details (reservation number, etc.). If you have no reservation, please inquire if cars are available.
You will be directed to the pick-up area of our air-conditioned shuttle bus, which is directly outside the arrival hall. No need to walk the few hundred yards to the main office, where your car will be waiting. Inside the main-office, just complete the paperwork, carefully inspect the vehicle released to you and off you go. On very few days of the year, around major holidays and with many flight arriving at similar hours, our rental desk might have to handle a lot of clients. In this case, our comfortable and air-conditioned waiting area, equipped with flat-screen TV, lets the minutes pass quickly.
INSPECTING THE CAR
Before you happily drive a away in your Dollar/Thrifty rental car, please take the time to inspect it together with our representative. It is important that all imperfections – from little dings to scratches on the paint – are noted on the form provided to you. Our representatives are instructed to document minor damages as precisely as humanly possible, but they might overlook something and it is important that you contribute to the inspection process. Once you are satisfied that the form has been completed correctly, sign it and the vehicle will be released to you.
Now you are ready to enjoy your reliable car from Dollar/Thrifty and the island roads are your's to explore.
SIX LOCATIONS TO SERVE ONE ISLAND
Dollar/Thrifty Car Rental created a first-class main-office a stone-throw away from the International Airport and right on the shores of Simpson Bay Lagoon. Combined with a convenient booth in the arrival hall, clients will receive their rental car with a minimal amount of wait and transfer time. No standing in line in the tropical sun after a long trip from a colder climate.
Dollar/Thrifty also operates rental desks in four major resorts in different regions of the island; that's why customers can be serviced on any spot of St. Maarten/St. Martin within a very short time-frame.
RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
While designing the new main-office a few years back, protecting the environment was a major concern. That's why the car maintenance area of the facility is equipped with the most modern technology to filter water used for washing the vehicles and to recycle it. There is no gray water allowed to run into the sensitive eco-system of the lagoon. Dollar/Thrifty hopes that other companies are following their lead in environmental awareness.
