About us

How we started:

Founded in 2009, Prins Car Rental B.V. has come a long way from its humble beginnings. 

I studied and worked in Holland as a car engineer for 6 years and during the holidays I would visit my family who lived in Curacao. I noticed during my vacations on Curacao that there were never enough cars for rent, and most car rental companies do not have a transparent pricing policy (no all-in prices).

So, I thought to myself, why not change this? And with that thought, it all started!

After completing my studies as a car engineer in Holland, I quit my day job, packed my belongings and emigrated back to Curacao, where my new journey would start. At first, it was just me, my brother and a part-time car washer working in my backyard with merely 8 cars to rent. 

My burning passion for cars and service excellence boosted us further to a small rental office on a busy main road in Curacao.

Our unwavering commitment to service excellence and our brand new cars with all-in pricing is what distinguishes Prins Car Rental B.V. from others in the industry.

In January 2020 we moved to our own modern office with a bigger lot just 2 minutes away from the airport to serve our customers even better and faster. We are still constantly improving our services and cars with new and modern technology such as online check-in and self-service rental options.

Due to the big success on the island of Curacao, we have extended to a Prins Car Rental branch in Bonaire in June 2020

We now serve customers from many parts of the world and have been through more than 120 cars.

We are thrilled that we're able to share our passion with you.

    What you can blame him for: If the rental prices are to low, blame him!
    Ps: if the prices are too high, blame the bank for their high interest rates.

    The more serious one at the company. This guy takes his job very seriously but if you hand him a strong cocktail at the end of the day, he will loosen up very quickly.
