    Dollar/Thrifty Car Rental

    Advertisements



    Dear Students,

    Dollar/Thrifty Car Rental has been serving AUC students and faculty for many years and has been an active sponsor/member for many student projects.

    We are located throughout the island. We have a station by Wyndham Sapphire Beach Hotel, 5 minutes walk away from the campus. We have been assisting many fellow students there for years.

    We offer great cars at excellent rates. Whether it is just a small car you need to do some groceries for a day or two, or if you need a vehicle on a weekly or monthly basis, we can happily meet your requests.

    Please view our website (thriftycarrentalsxm 'dotcom') or call us locally at 54-542394 and ask to speak to Vic for more information.

    We are here for you, and can depend on us.

    Good luck in school and we hope you make fine doctors and serve our world well.

    I will never rent a car from you guys again, and I tell all my fellow AUC students how bad your service sucks. The Wyndham Sapphire location is a total rip off and the main office by the airport has no clue what's going on.

    If you rent a car from Sapphire, they'll give you a car with a quarter tank of gas, mark it off as full, and then charge you for the difference when you return it. This is not an isolated incident, it's common practice.

    Also, the main office will quote you once price and tell you it's good at all locations, but the other locations refuse to honor it.

    There's basically one guy at Wyndham Sapphire who respects students and is an honest guy (I wish I knew his name at the moment). The rest of the people at that company are either clueless or scam artists. AVOID THEM ALTOGETHER.

    ^ His name is Leo and he does a great job. I only rent from this company because of how amazing Leo has been with me and other students.

    I agree that Leo is a good guy. Sorry about your bad experience with the company.

    I tend to lock my price in on expedia or carrentals.com and show up with a printed receipt. It usually knocks the price off $5-15/day (depending on the time of year) and they don't add anything on top of the quoted price when you get there.

    Hello GQ_Doc,

    I am truly sorry for any inconveniences or bad experiences you may have had. This is NOT, I repeat, NOT, a common incident. We do not engage in such malpractices such as marking one level of gas and charging you for a different amount. Regarding the price fluctuation, we always honor prices that are reserved. If the amount you booked with an agent was reserved, that is what you will be billed for. I apologize for any miscommunication that may have taken place.

    We are here to serve you and in the best interests of AUC. We are regarded as St. Maarten's #1 Car Rental and have an amazing following of students who always, and only, rent from us.

    Our Agent's name at Sapphire is Leo, and he does a terrific job in helping all of the students. I would like to once again apologize for your experience, and hope you can try us again in the near future. You can call Leo directly at 5-206173 or call me directly at 5-206279 and I will personally handle any reservations you may have.

    The airport location is useless and they are never open. Ive made reservations with them in the past but when I land, they are never there to honor it.

    But Ive heard good things about the sapphire location.

    Dear Southstar99,

    We have two airport locations. One at the actual airport, and one at our main office. The location AT the airport, is where we receive our customers and shuttle them to our main office.

    I am not sure what you mean that we are not open. During the day, we have over 20 staff working at our main office. View our website to see the picture of our building. It is impossible what you mention. When you land, inform the the agents at the airport that you have a reservation, then they will guide you to our shuttle, which then takes you to our main office and all of your reservation information will be there with our headquarter staff.

    Dear Denali584,

    Haha. Nope. No Escalades riding on 24's. That was pretty funny. However, we do have alot of high end vehicles. We have the new 2011 Ford Mustangs, Hyundai Sonatas, Hyundai Tucsons, Hyundai Vera Cruzes, Ford Taurus, Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and also a Ford Explorer Limited Edition which is completely stacked like any Escalade out there (minus the 24's, hehe).

    I've rented from Thrifty multiple times and have never had a bad experience except for the speedbumps outside of Saphire- They would destroy the undercarriage of a tank let alone a baby Getz.
    Taked baby. Meet at later bar, day night sometime.

    .
    my flight landed around 10 pm, by the time i reached the lobby it was probly about 11pm- no one was at dollar/thrifty.

    Was this an aberration or does dollar/thrifty close before 11?
