Oranjestad Queen Beatrix International Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Serving the capital of Oranjestad, Queen Beatrix Airport is the main port of entry for visitors to the Caribbean island of Aruba. Thanks to its small size and decent road network, everywhere on the island can be easily reached from the airport including these three notable attractions:

  • Oranjestad. Located just a stone’s throw from the airport near the island’s western coast, Oranjestad itself is one of Aruba’s most notable attractions. Known for its colorful facades and many festivals, the city is also home to historical landmarks like Fort Zoutman, an 18th-century bastion now turned into a museum. Another fine destination is the city’s wharf — not only does it provide lovely views, but it’s also the right place to buy some fresh seafood.
  • Arikok National Park. Taking up a decent portion of the island’s center, as well as of its eastern coast, Arikok is the largest nature preserve on Aruba. In addition to the scenery of coastal cliffs and lava formations, the park is also home to eerie, but fascinating caves and drawings left by the island’s indigenous Arawak people. The drive from Oranjestad takes only about 30 minutes.
  • Beaches. Naturally, the main tourist draw of Aruba is its 68-km (42-mile) long coastline. Popular spots include Baby Beach in the south, the main snorkeling hub of the island, and Eagle Beach in the northwest, which is often mentioned among the most beautiful on the whole planet —, really stunning coastal stretches can be found all across the island, though.

We rented our car from a car rental shop located about 5 minutes from the airport. Pickup was very smooth (flight was delayed but they were right outside waiting for us to pick us up) and the staff was very friendly and professional. The casual “island vibe”’was definitely there but that also makes it a more interesting experience. All in all we had a great time driving around Aruba and seeing all the natural beauty it has to offer.

Jimmy helped us immensely! We had some minor issues with the first car we picked up, but Jimmy was responsive and helped us exchange it easily. We have already booked our next trip and will be going through Jimmy and SmartRent. My fiancé and I are both extremely satisfied and look forward to our next rental experience. Please let Jimmy know how much we appreciated his assistance!

Very easy to rent a car at the airport . No long lines, very quick service. Fellow travelers, be aware not to be late picking up the car or dropping it off, it will cost you a lot and they have no discretion about you issue with being late.
