Leisure Car Rental Wins Big at the 2018 World Travel Awards


SIMPSON BAY — Leisure Car Rental was established in 2007 on the island of St. Maarten. They started small, but consistently grew over the years to become the number one Car Rental Agency on the friendly island.  Hence the slogan ‘The Best Place to Rent A Car in St. Maarten’. Ten years later, they opened a branch in the Nature Island, Dominica. With plans to expand to St. Kitts, Anguilla, and the rest of the Caribbean.

Winning prestigious Awards is nothing new for this company. Over the years, they picked up multiple local and international Customer Service Awards. To date, Leisure Car Rental is still the only Award Winning Rent A Car Company in St. Maarten.

In 2013, Jacqueline Joseph brought home the Auto Rental News Professional of the Year Award, presented by American Express. This was an enormous win, since there were candidates from all over the world competing for this Award. Both Jacqueline, and Leisure Car Rental made an immediate decision to try even harder to maintain 100% Customer Satisfaction.

Leisure Car Rental was presented with the Award of Excellence for Outstanding Managerial Leadership, Strategy Development, Customer Orientation, and Strategy Implementation, by Jeff Berger’s www.everythingsxm.com in both 2016, AND 2017. Jeff Berger’s Original SXM Information Center is The Largest, Most Complete Guide to “Everything St. Maarten/St. Martin”. We were very pleased to have been recognized by the largest St. Maarten/St.Martin Travel website.

In 2017, we also won the Award for St. Maarten’s Leading Car Rental Agency at the World Travel Awards. This was an amazing win. World Travel Awards™ was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Today, the World Travel Awards™ brand is recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence.

This year, Leisure Car Rental was nominated for three notable awards, and successfully picked up two of them. As we all know, the friendly island, which is only 37 square meters, consists of two independent countries: Dutch St. Maarten, and French St. Martin. Leisure Car Rental has won both the St. Maarten’s Leading Car Rental Award, and the St. Martin’s Leading Car Rental Award.


The 25th Annual World Travel Awards Caribbean and North America Gala Ceremony was held at the Sandals Montego Bay, in Jamaica on Saturday 22nd September, 2018. “We would like to sincerely thank every single person, who contributed in one way or another towards the growth and success of Leisure Car Rental over the Years. Special thanks to everyone who voted. And we are very grateful to everyone at the WTA for this prestigious Award.” – Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Director
