Top tips for renting a car at Santa Marta Simon Bolivar airport

  • Among the benefits of obtaining a car from a car rental at Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport (SMR) are the mobility flexibility and convenience. Unlike the public transportation system, which consists of buses and trains, a rented car from a Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport car rental will allow you to tour your major places in your own timings and routes. Tayrona National Park, Minca, and Costeno Beach are just a few of the places that may be conveniently accessible by a car rental.
  • The minimum age restriction is a significant consideration when renting your car from a car rental at Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport (SMR). The majority of Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport car rental firms have set the minimum age for renting a car at 25. You however need to note that several car rental companies, such as Avis, National, Enterprise, and Alamo, implement a young driver's premium that must be paid by young drivers aged 21 to 24 before they could be allowed to pick their rented cars.
  • Please be aware of the after-hours return policy if you want to return your rental car from a car rental at Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport (SMR). Based on this policy, several car rentals at SMR, including National, Alamo, and Avis, may let you return your rented car at any of their on-site drop-off locations outside their regular business hours. Remove all of your possessions, place a copy of your rental agreement on the driver's seat before locking your vehicle, and put your car's keys in the appropriate after-hour keys return box if you are using this after-hour return policy.
  • Please prioritize visiting a car rental counter on typical weekdays if you intend to rent your car from a car rental at Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport (SMR). Weekends and public holidays record a spike in the number of people needing to rent, pick up, or return their previously rented vehicles at the Santa Marta Simon Bolivar Airport car rental companies' counters. There may be annoying waits and lengthy lines at the vehicle rental desks due to the increase in tourists during holidays and on weekends.

3.2 Poor

Feb. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The car broke after 2 hours of use. Left indicator didnt work, drivers dook didnt look. We rang up and the team was unhelpful - we had to make an arranged time to change the car, miles from where we were! A nightmare, basically. Never using Avis again. + Service at collection was slow, rude, rubbish

Cons:

Everything

4.0 Mediocre

Jun. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

How easy it was to arrange for the online rental. We will try to avoid using Avis again. They need to streamline the checkout process.

Cons:

Twice we rented Avis Cars in International Airports in Colombia. What a mistake Santa Marta & Bogota- very long check out process, especially when compared to our Colombian experience with Localiza Santa Marta - The Nissan March car we were given was substandard to other rental cars that we have had. (After market radio, lots of dings, missing hubcap, made a squeaky noise- we feared it might break down. Santa Marta - At check out we had to defend that it was being returned exactly as we received it. Apparently there were traffic cones missing.- Bogota -1 hr. 45 min. time period between checking in at reservation time at the Avis Counter and actually driving the car from the lot Bogota - tacky paint, and no wet paint signs, at the Avis counter. I got paint on my shirt sleeve. Bogota - Bad check-int instructions were given at Check-out, so it made check out longer and more complicated.

Cons:

There is no AVIS station at the Santa Marta Airport. I had to drive to the city to pick up my car. No explanation, no word of excuse. The dropoff was set to be the airport. The AVIS employee showed up with 1 hour delay.

KAYAK

Cons:

The car was a wreck with big scratches all over and it was lacking features which are now common on most cars even the cheapest. We thought about returning it several times but since it still took us from point A to point B, we preferred spending our time discovering the country instead. However, the drop-off was a nightmare. The employee at Santa Marta came up with new (tiny) scratches in the most random places and made us call the Cartagena office to explain it wasn't our fault. They said they will review all pictures of the car to determine whether it was caused by us with no apologies for the inconvenience. This whole thing took close to an hour, making us rush for our plane. We had substantially better service with Localiza for our rental between Bogota and Medellin, even though they are not international players. Avoid Avis.

This was the worse experience.. I will never use Kayak again. I rented a car from National in Santa Marta; Colombia. What they did not tell me is Santa Marta has restrictions based on the last digit of the license plate so I could not drive the car on the third day I was there which was the day I had to return the car to airport. And they had only one car so I had to come back a day early and use taxis on final day.
