Tips for Driving in St Maarten
In St Maarten, we drive on the right-hand side of the road, just like when driving in the USA or Canada. One important driving tip is that, all traffic coming from the right, has the right of way! Be mindful of this as you won’t see many traffic signs at intersections around the island. The same applies for driving in both Dutch and French St Martin.
Be sure to also keep an eye out for no-parking zones around the island. You’ll find these especially in Philipsburg, Marigot and at the airport. Towing companies tend to quickly tow away vehicles that are found to be in no-parking zones and the fee to collect the vehicles can range between $50-75.
Requirements for renting a car in St Maarten can vary from one rental car company to another, be sure to read the terms and conditions for the rental. We do recommend you purchase a 3rd party liability insurance, it’s always better to be safe when renting a car anywhere, even here in sunshine city St Maarten.
