Empress Rent a Car is an independent car provider on the Caribbean island of St Maarten – St Martin. Empress is not affiliated with an international franchise. Why is this important for you to know?
The first advantage are our lower rates. As we don't have to pay franchise fees for every car rented or commissions to the big mother company for each booking made through their reservation system, we can transfer these lower costs to the customer.
Formed in 1994, we have grown over the years and now can be arguably considered as the number one independent car rental company on the island, competing with major franchises, such as Dollar-Thrifty, Hertz, Budget, Avis and ACE.
Our fleet is composed of modern vehicles, similar to the choices other market leaders have made, however our prices are far more competitiv.
Our rates don't hold any hidden surprises: You will not be asked to pay any extra charges other than the amount agreed at the time of reserving the car. The rate we quote is the price you pay once you stand in front of our service counter.
Mandatory Deposit of US$ 750.00 is required at the time of renting the car. However we don’t insist on this once you become a part of our satisfied and faithful returning clientele.
Insurance is optional and you will not be hit with requests for basic insurance or obscure charges, but we obviously need to encourage you to cover yourselves against any risk an eventuality and offer Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Liability Insurance. (If you compare rates with other providers, please double check that their quotation is the final cost)
