Jamaica car rentals: all you need to know

When you travel to the home of reggae and Rasta, be prepared to have a good time. Located in the Caribbean Sea and part of the Greater Antilles, the island of Jamaica may be on the small side, but it’s known for having a culture that’s larger than life. During your next island getaway, reserve a car rental in Jamaica and discover this vibrant nation at your leisure.

How can I get a cheap car rental in Jamaica?

Eager to see as much of Jamaica as possible, without the hassle of public transport? Make it happen by booking a vehicle with CarRentals.com. For the best possible price, try to:

  • - Weigh up offers from rental companies;
  • - Avoid airport pick-ups;
  • - Reserve your car rental well in advance.

What do I have to keep in mind when renting a car in Jamaica?

While road trips in Jamaica can be mind-blowing experiences, some of the roads can be very bumpy, and potholes are very common. To avoid being stranded miles from repair shops, be sure your rental car comes equipped with a spare tire, jack, and necessary tools.

What Jamaica car rental companies are good?

Many major car rental companies have branches in Jamaica, including big names like Alamo, Budget, Thrifty, and Hertz. Smaller, local firms are also ready to help. Before making your final decision, it’s worth checking online reviews ahead of time.

What kind of car should I get in Jamaica?

There are options galore on CarRentals.com, and choosing the right rental vehicle really depends on your individual situation:

  • - If you’re going on big road trips, or are here with a larger group, go for a minivan or SUV;
  • - If you’re just making short trips, or are with a small group, an economy car works well.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Jamaica?

As a general rule, you have to be at least 21 to drive a car rental in Jamaica. You should also bear in mind there may be a surcharge if you’re under 25.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Jamaica?

Car insurance is required in Jamaica. So, before making your car rental booking, check if your current car or credit card insurance policies are valid for hiring transportation in Jamaica. You can always choose to buy insurance through CarRentals.com itself, or from whichever rental company you go for.

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in Jamaica?

Want to explore Jamaica from your own set of wheels without worrying about incurring any extra fees? Be sure to check if your rental car comes with unlimited mileage. Then, you can relax and embark on the Caribbean road trip of your dreams.

Can I use a debit card for a Jamaica car rental?

As a rule of thumb, debit cards cannot be used to book or pay for rental cars in Jamaica. A credit card will be required instead.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way in Jamaica?

Don’t want to start and finish your road odyssey in the same place? No problem – you can ask your rental company about one-way arrangements instead. Just make sure you check what the additional fee may be.

3 sights/cities you cannot miss in Jamaica

Planning your dream Jamaica itinerary? Here are some must-see places to visit with your rental car:

  • - Pay homage to a musical icon at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, where you can enter the superstar’s own home, and see poignant memorabilia from a career that changed the world.
  • - Get a taste of paradise at Doctor’s Cave Beach Club, famed for its pale, almost glowing sands, clear waters, and opportunities to go kayaking and snorkeling.
  • - Explore Dunn’s River Falls, which draws in visitors keen to climb the rocky terraces and feel the gushing water against their skin.

What is a good road trip around Jamaica?

You can see some of Jamaica’s most popular spots with a road trip from Kingston to Montego Bay. Highway 2000 meanders across the island to Ocho Rios, where you’ll want to stop off to relish the picture-postcard Caribbean beaches. Then, carry on by driving your rental car along the northern coast of Jamaica to Montego Bay, where more beachside bliss, along with family attractions and hot nightspots, await.

What activities is Jamaica especially good for?

It almost goes without saying Jamaica is an ideal destination for beach lovers. There are numerous swathes of sandy shoreline to discover and while away lazy days on. You can get stuck into water sports or just work on the tan. Anyone with a passion for history will want to embark on plantation tours, while music fans will want to make a shortlist of reggae bars to visit.

3 traffic tips to keep you safe

  • - You’ll have to drive on the left in Jamaica, so stay alert to that fact if you’re not used to it.
  • - Locals tend to drive in an unashamedly bold way, and as a newcomer it’s best to drive defensively and keep an eye out for overtaking traffic.
  • - Make liberal use of your car horn, especially when planning to overtake or going around tight bends.
