KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Philipsburg

  • Taking a bus while exploring Phillipsburg limits the places you visit because they travel at specific hours and only on certain routes. In addition, most buses make several stops on each trip, giving you a slow journey. On the other hand, using car hire in Phillipsburg gives you maximum satisfaction when travelling through the city because of flexibility. When driving a hire car, you can easily go to Sandy Hill Beach on your own time, about 25 km (16 miles) from Phillipsburg.
  • Simpson Bay Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) is the main airport serving Phillipsburg. After landing, you can choose a vehicle from the Phillipsburg car hire agencies; Enterprise, Alamo and Europcar are located in a separate building, across the parking near the terminal exit. A free shuttle is always waiting for passengers to take them to the car hire offices from the terminal. However, consider booking in advance for a quick pick-up.
  • Streets in the city can get crowded and busy as people head out to restaurants and shopping. Therefore, driving on busy streets can be challenging. However, you have to focus on pedestrian safety. While most roads in the city are well-paved, some streets have potholes and can be dangerous to drive on, especially at night. For this reason, be keen on the road when driving at night.
  • Heavy traffic during rush hours, mostly from 07:00 to 09:00 and 16:00 to 18:00 on weekdays, can make using car hire in Phillipsburg difficult. Road congestion is caused by commuters going to and from work, tourist buses and large trucks. One of the most affected roads is Wellfare Rd. Driving on this road can cause delays in your journey. Therefore, consider driving on back street roads with less traffic.

All you need to do is choose a vehicle size depending on your luggage amount and the number of people travelling with you. Also, ask your car hire agency to tell you more about the vehicle's features and fuel consumption to know what to expect during the journey. In addition, a compact vehicle will allow you to more easily overtake and drive confidently on roads with curves than driving a larger car.

With speed limit signs available for reference on the streets, you can maintain the correct speed to ensure safety for all road users.

  • Where are the best places to park in Phillipsburg?

    If you need a spacious and secure car park, choose the ones in the city centre. They are near the streets, giving you an easy exit from the city. However, parking charges vary among car parks. Therefore, consider the fees before parking. You could incur towing costs if you park your vehicle anywhere on the road. Avoid parking in front of driveways to evade paying fines.

I didn't choose the cheapest option that was available but a "mini" that had a photo of a mini cooper. It was almost double the price of the cheapest option. I ended up receiving the cheapest option vehicle and was told that I paid extra for the latest model of that vehicle, a random sedan. If I had known this would happen I would have chosen the cheapest option. It seems that I was deceived by the company to pay extra. I purchased insurance online but was told it was not from the rental company. The difference should be explained ahead of time as it also seems to be deceiving the consumer.

Pros:

Very clean. Appeared to be almost a new car. Had the car for 7 weeks. Got good gas mileage. The staff were very helpful in answering questions.. Quick and easy pickup and return. I went to the beach frequently and consequently collected a fair amount of sand on the floor. They said that normally they would need to charge a cleaning fee, but waived that charge because of the length of the rental.

Cons:

The car was almost new and I had some questions about how some things worked,such as the air conditioner, and rear window wipers, and engine iddeling issues. The owners manual was entirely in a foreign language and was useless,but the people at the car rental place were very knowledgeable and answered all my question.

The manager took two open credit Card receipts basically I expressed Concerns about potential fraud and I was told That this is their policy. I turned in car early (due to smell of car) and no ability to refund after two days. The car also was less than 1000 km and was so rank with cigarette smoke it was unbelievable and couldn’t drive it due to smell. No manager available to talk “out of office” frustrating experience would not rent again from this company
