I would have given 5 stars HOWEVER, the EXTREMELY high deposit they hold on your credit card was NOT disclosed when signing the paperwork. I appreciate the convenience of them but please let people know about the deposit so they can plan accordingly. Holding THAT much on a credit card could RUIN a travel budget!The car was acceptable even though it was not clean. Maybe I'm just used to American style rental cleanliness lol.. but I appreciate the effort.

    Starlite Car Rental in St. Maarten is great. Met us promptly at the airport with a good car and were at the airport for a quick return. Have used them many years and they have always been great.

    Overall, I definitely will use them again and recommend the company. Only hiccup was that the prior renter of my assigned vehicle had not returned by the time for my pickup which was at the airport! The other places are close but off campus. They needed to give me a different car class (lower instead of higher??). Initially I was annoyed but then after a day, I was enjoying St Marteen so what did it really matter? I had to remind them but they did credit me back the difference.Can’t give them a 5 star this visit but not surprised at all with the positive reviews.

    Starlite Car Rental in SXM is fantastic. You book your rental online on their website. You will hear from someone shortly after for any info they need or to email you your confirmation. When you arrive on the island they meet you right at the airport. You don't have to take a shuttle. You take care of the paperwork right there and drive away. Then they meet you back there when you return your rental. You are always greeted with a smile and their girl Krystal in the office is fantastic. Always available by email if you need assistance with your rental. Don't give it another thought! Rent with Starlite, you will be glad you did!

    Girls trip of 6 visited St Martin for the first time last month. I cancelled reservations for another car rental company while reading reviews and heard about the great service offered here. I sent a request the day before we arrived and thankfully we were able to be accommodated, I receive very quick response via email. As soon as we arrived Jorge was waiting for us. He gave us great tips on navigating the island and how to keep safe. We had a 3 row SUV, brand new, clean and perfect for our trip. We had no issues with the car at all. When returning the car there was also someone waiting for us at the airport and he made the transition smooth and easy. I loved St. Martin and thankful we had a car for our trip as we were staying on the East side of the island. I will be back to St. Martin hopefully very soon and will rent with Starlite again. Highly recommend!

    I've read many reviews online before our trip and decided to cancel my reservation with a major car rental company and booked with Starlite because I wanted to support local businesses - and boy, I'm so glad I did.Their cars are parked (and returned) right in front of the terminal, no time wasted for a shuttle ride (that's the case with ALL major rental companies at SXM).Due to some mix-up, our car wasn't ready when we arrived to pick it up, they promptly drove us to our place, and within minutes, I received an email to apologize - with some incentives: free upgrade to a new and bigger car, as well as letting us add another driver to the reservation for no charge.All was well, but some minor scratches on the bumper were discovered when we returned the car. Honestly, we don't know when or how that happened. We always parked in a safe area.Now, we didn't purchase the CDW (collision damage waiver) because our credit card provides that coverage.Here's a kicker, I mindlessly used the card that is under (only) my husband's name to pay for the reservation that's under my name.I think we would have had a problem had we filed the claim with the credit card company because the Cardholder must be the primary renter on the car rental agreement.Anyway, just as I was being so mad at myself, Starlite sent an email stating that they would NOT charge me for the damage!ZERO!Needless to say, I was ecstatic.So to sum it up, I HIGHLY recommend Starlite. Their service is fast, top-notch, my car was brand-new, but their best assets are the people.Every single employees we've encountered (in-person or via email) are courteous, professional, friendly, helpful, honest, understanding; I've never had a better experience with any other rental companies and I've used them all.Starlite, THANK YOU for everything. You've made our trip even more memorable and I hope we'll be coming back to see you in the near future.

    March 2018 was the first time we used Starlite Car Rentals and I couldn't be happier. The pick up and drop off at the airport was fantastic. We were out of the airport in the car and on our way in about 10 minutes. The drop off was just as easy. We will be returning in December with approx 14 people and will be renting 3 cars. I have all the confidence they will be just as efficient as they were with just one rental!

    The SUV and the StarLite rep was waiting for us at Princes Juliana airport upon arrival. And to our surprise the rental had been upgraded with no additional charge. A week later we returned to the airport, met the rep in the parking lot, handed over the keys and without any delay we were on our way. Excellent customer service from start to finish. We will be using them again.

    We’ve been to st Martin several times and had always used the same company . Their customer service AND the cars they were renting we’re getting shabby so we tried Starlite . We were skeptical but the customer service for quite and e mail right away we’re fantastic ( I believe that was shareta Harris ) . I was crossing my fingers someone would be at the airport like they said and sure enough as soon as you walk out you can’t miss them with the logo on their shirt , leading you right to your car , quick inspection. , sign and go. Same as the way back . During the trip we exchanged for a bigger vehicle went directly to belair and shanyra was fantastic . Fantastic customer service ! We ll be back !

    Starlite is the best car rental company I have ever used. I have been coming to SXM for many years and have been a Starlite customer for the last ten and would not consider another company. It is so nice to get off the plane and be greeted with your car by the friendly people from Starlite. The cars are well maintained and the rental process is most efficient from pickup to drop off. Special thanks to Shanyra and George for always making this part of the trip such a pleasant experience

    I always rent from Starlite when we make our annual visit to St. Maarten. They always provide great service, are timely and friendly. I once had a vehicle develop a vibration and they came to my hotel to exchange vehicles. I didn't have to do a thing. They took care of it all. I can't recommend them highly enough.

No hassles and always a friendly face waiting to greet you in the terminal. That means that your vacation starts right away! Is it my birthday? No, but it feels like it when I see Zeke's smiling face!

    I just came back from my first trip to St Maarten where I used Starlite car rental. They met us at the airport and helped use get our luggage into the car and we were off to the Belair Hotel where we were staying. No waiting, not a million questions, and we were on the road. The guy in the red shirt asked if I knew how to get there and I had printed out a map with directions before leaving home, which worked out very well. I finished the paperwork at the Starlite office when I to the Belair Hotel. They were very nice and friendly and helpful. I would definitely use them again.

    Great service and pricing. Straight forward with no frills. This was our first time to Sint Marteen and somewhat apprehensive about renting a car. Glad we did. You won't regret renting from these people. Its the no frills easy to rent with excellent front side and backside service. We took a taxi from the airport to BelAir Resort when we should have just rented from the start. Prices were $35 daily for a great little car. All of the cars are automatics but still found them strong enough to get up the steep hills. Its the relaxed feeling and trust they offer their customers that makes the difference. I checked my Credit Card over and over and nothing extra what so ever added. These are the type of businesses that will keep tourist coming back over and over. Great Job Starlite!

    We have used Starlite in the past and deicded to use them again. In my mind it is all value for money and Starlite delivers on a numer of fronts. They are competively priced, you pick up the car at the airport vs being taken to your car. As owners at Belair we do the paperwork at the hotel and the shuttle service to the airport is really convenient. My only issue and it is a small one is that the gas tank was only 7/8 full. We of course returned the car full. I would however recommend them.

    We have been going to St Maarten for over ten years and always rent from ThriftySXM. During our last visit, we encountered a SERIOUS issue with Thrifty and will never rent from them again. A friend recommended Starlite. I am thrilled. All I can say is thank you Thrifty for your awful service. Otherwise we wouldn't have found this gem of a company. George, who met us at the airport when we arrived and when we left, was excellent. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We will rent from them again, and again......!!!!

    Fantastic rental company! They literally meet you at the terminal with your rental, quick inspection, sign and drive. A taxi from the airport to Philipsburg is about $40 so for the price of a taxi to and from the airport it’s a better deal to rent from Starlight. You drop your rental off at the terminal when you fly out. Couldn’t be more convenient and you have instant transportation. Parking on the island is almost always free and it’s easy to navigate. Do yourself a favor and rent a car while you vacation there.

    Starlite is the best Car Rental Folks on the Island - after a long flight the last thing you want to do is wait for a shuttle and then driven off site to only wait again. Starlite meets you at the airport to pick you up and you are on your way and then when you depart it is the same great door to door service. Love these Folks!!!

    We arrived early but Starlite had our flight number and was at the airport with red shirt and sign waiting for us. They upgraded the vehicle for us at no charge, carefully documented all damage before we left airport and again when we filled out our paperwork at Belair Beach Hotel. The tank was 7/8ths full so we didn't have to worry about stopping for fuel. We were given directions to Belair Beach and we were on our way. Easy Peasy! We have been extremely pleased with their professional and friendly service!

    Starlight has been our family’s car rental source in St Maarten for 20 years. We started with them under a previous name on our first stay for one week at the Belair. We now stay every year from mid-December through about mid-January. Shanyra has brought an even higher level of customer satisfaction to what was great service since she took over a couple years ago. We greatly missed our time with Starlight and the Belair last year but look forward to seeing everyone in 8 months. Please have 3 cars ready for us!
