Top tips for renting a car in Caribbean Islands

  • Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) is a major international airport in the Caribbean Islands, and it is an ideal place to rent a vehicle before embarking on your trips in the region. Upon arrival, you'll need a shuttle to get to the airport's Rental facility. Leave the baggage claim area and walk across the street to the Rental Car Center, situated in the airport's parking garage. The airport features car rental counters situated on the first floor of the parking garage in the Rental Car Facility. At the Rental Facility, you'll find self-service kiosks where you can make quick and easy rental transactions.
  • Driving in the Caribbean Islands is generally difficult. The region's narrow and winding roads make it a constant test of a driver's concentration and patience. The traffic jams during peak hours feature bumper-to-bumper queues moving at a slower pace. Generally, the mornings, usually from around 7:30 am to 9:00 am, witness a surge in traffic as people start their day. The afternoons, between 4:30 pm and 6:00 pm, feature a spike as people return home, resulting in a rush of vehicles and pedestrians in the streets. The slow-moving traffic can be aggravating, as drivers must balance maintaining awareness of the movements of other vehicles while also keeping a lookout for pedestrians crossing the road.
  • In the Caribbean Islands, the ideal car for driving is either a compact SUV or an open-air all-terrain car. These vehicles have a perfect balance between maneuverability and practicality, making them well-suited for navigating the island's diverse landscapes and road conditions. The vehicles allow for easy parking and maneuvering through narrow streets, which is a common feature in many Caribbean towns and cities. In addition, the cars' high ground clearance helps to handle occasional uneven or rough roads, common in some remote areas of the islands.
  • In many Caribbean countries, it is a legal requirement to use appropriate car seats for children based on their age, height, or weight. Given that child seat regulations depend on the child's age and size, infants and toddlers must be restrained in rear-facing car seats until they are 2 years old or older. In addition, the region's child seat rules require children between the ages of 2 and 12 to be in a forward-facing car seat.
