Car Rentals in SXM

Is it better to rent an older or newer model car?? I know the roads are bad and I don't want to be scammed by anyone! We plan on renting for about 3 or 4 days to check out the island.

We always ask for a well dented car. Most are only a year or two old, but if you get it pre-dented, it's hard to tell if you've added to the mess!

Yeah ask for a car with dents. I have rented from Payless and found them to be very easy and good to work with. They were also very reasonable. I paid $119 for a weeks rental for a car that fit 5 people with luggage. If you can rent for the whole time do it, it is cheaper than taxis and easier to drive yourself.

we rented our car right from GCBC which was REALLY convenient since we were staying right there.

and the roads aren't BAD per say, but some were VERY twisty and steep. the roads are paved and don't seem to be in that bad of shape.

Had no problem with Hertz just make sure you get a not so new model. Next trip will probably use whatever is offered ant Grand Case Beach Club... A car on Saint Martin is the way to go!
