This is the way to go in St. Martin for a car rental. We were a party of 6 adults needing an SUV. Claude brought the exact vehicle we wanted to our house at the time he promised. The paperwork was already filled out. I only needed to give him a credit card, drivers license and signature. The SUV was clean and had a full tank of gas. At the end of our trip, Claude arrived at our house with a van for our luggage. He followed us to the aiport. It could not have been simpler. We highly recommend Claude and Discount Car Rental.

Easiest rental process ever! We were met at the airport by the owner, Claude, to get our Ford Explorer rental. He even helped us get our luggage to the vehicle as we were struggling. He then escorted us to our place of stay to make sure we gained access and in touch with our concierge. He provided excellent service and the vehicle was very clean. Thank you, Claude for all your help!!!!! With gratitude, The Farmer family

Claude and Sabine met us at the Airport with the rental car and a warm welcome. We were on our way within minutes. This was a very different experience from our previous three rentals at other companies in St. Martin. If it matters to you, Claude will give you a handshake that you will understand. I am very pleased with our experience and we will return to Discount for future visits to the island.

Claude went above and beyond a typical car rental company! His personalized service was fabulous! He picked us up from the airport and took us back when our vacation was over! He speaks fluent French and German and speaks very well in English too! ...and probably other languages as well!! :) The car was clean and like new. The rental rate was considerably less than the rental companies at the airport. Claude was very personable and extremely trustworthy and helpful! He even let us store our luggage in his rental company’s office so we could explore the island in our rental car until our apartment check-in time. We will definitely be using Discount Car Rental every time we visit St. Martin!

Extremely easy car rental process, no lines / no waiting. Claude from DCR was waiting with a sign with our last name on it as we stepped out of airport. We walked a very short distance to where the car was parked, we were told to meet back at this exact location at a certain time to return car and just like that we were on our way! At precisely the time we were told to return car, Claude was waiting for us. Doesn’t get any easier and the rental price was the best we came across.

Claude was great, I was delayed a day due to passport problem and he met my wife at the airport, drove her to our resort so she knew where to go and then returned back to his location and gave her the car with a map and directions back to the resort. If you are planning to rent a car then Claude is the man!
5 star rating

5 star rating
Great service, so much simpler than using the other major brands. All my prior trips to the island I used various other brands, all involved shuttles and lines. This trip, I was greeted as soon as I walked out of the airport and was in my car and on my way in under 10 minutes. Saved a good 45 minutes for a similar car and price.
