KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Piarco

  • Hiring Piarco car rentals offers numerous benefits. Driving car rentals is the best way to explore the city’s top attractions. They offer you the freedom to take pit stops and soak in the adventure by taking pictures. Car rentals help you save time as driving is faster than catching public transport schedules. By saving time, you discover more parts of the city, including Caroni Bird Sanctuary, Argyle Waterfall, and Maracas Beach. Car rentals in Piarco help you explore the city like a local. In addition, you won’t have to drag luggage with you.
  • In Piarco, cyclists are allowed to use any road of their choice. This means that you will be sharing the road with cyclists and, at times, with jaywalkers. It would be in your best interest to note that cyclists and jaywalkers in Piarco rarely follow traffic rules. Cyclists would sometimes hop from their cycle tracks to the main roads. At times, they also run red lights. When approaching a junction or a pedestrian crossing while driving your cheap car rentals in Piarco, you should therefore be careful not to hit jaywalkers or ram into cyclists.
  • When taking a flight to Piarco, you will most likely arrive at Piarco International Airport. From the baggage claim area, go to customs, exit customs, and turn left. Walk 30 feet to the car rental counter. Please notice you will not require shuttle services to get to the car rental center. Onsite car rental agencies at the airport include Alamo, Hertz, National, Dollar, and Thrifty. The car rental agencies provide 24 hours services and after-hour services for easy pick-up and drop-off. Consider making prior arrangements to avoid waiting in line for hours to get assistance.
  • Driving your rented car from the cheap car rentals in Piarco on the major roads is easy. This is down to the availability of different road signs and posters that offer speed and direction assistance. However, you can also request your car rental company to add a standalone GPS navigation system to your car to complement the road signs. The navigation system would optimize your ability to locate your destinations.
  • Keeping the city's driving laws in mind is crucial to navigate Piarco car rentals safely. Driving is done on the right side of the road. All passengers and drivers in the front of the car must have seatbelts. Children under eight must be in safety seats at the back of the vehicle. Distracted driving, including texting and making phone calls, is illegal. Driving under the influence of alcohol is prohibited. Avoid driving car rentals in Piarco when drunk to avoid getting fined steep charges.
  • Piarco has no toll roads. You will therefore enjoy your road trips to your destinations on any road freely. However, you should note that the absence of tolls may be a recipe for careless driving since everyone would be competing to use the highway. Do not move with the crowd in violating basic driving laws such as using phones while driving, hooting unnecessarily, getting behind your car’s wheel while drunk, overlapping, and speeding. If you don’t check your driving speed against the posted speed limits, you may be ticketed at the police traps or stops. Some famous police stop and traps are realized along; Wilson Road or the Claude Noel Highway, Trincity Central Road, or the Churchill Roosevelt Highway Intersection. The cumulative charges for violating safe road usage would significantly increase your car rental charges.
  • Driving car rentals in Piarco is easy but does come with its challenges. Beware of careless driving, as most driving laws are not enforced. Rush hour peaks between 7 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 7 pm. The rush hour is a prime hour for motor accidents. Avoid driving during these hours if you do not wish to stay in traffic for long hours. However, if you must drive during these hours, avoid the city's traffic hotspots like Uriah Butler Highway and Churchill – Rosevelt Highway.

Pros:

The company and staff really went out of their way to help me out. I was with a large group and had three vehicles and they went the distance to assist me in whatever I needed. Above and beyond service.

Cons:

There was a miscommunication about my initial rental plans - I could have solved it with an email, but it didn't occur to me as I had other things on my mind. In the end it was sorted out on my arrival and even ended up saving me money.

KAYAK

Pros:

Absolutely nothing.

Cons:

Most of the employees at this alleged Hertz rental location were slow & confused. When we arrived at Piarco Airport at about 5am, we called Hertz & were told that even though we had made a reservation in advance, there were no rentals available. We sat at the airport for TWO HOURS, waiting for them to figure out a vehicle for us, although it should have been ready & waiting. Instead of taking a pre authorization for the depsoit, we were charged a full $600 which is $100 more than they originally stated because of the car that we ended up with was a (tiny) SUV, in addition to the cost of the actual rental. This was not expressed in advance by Kayak or "Hertz", what if we were not prepared to spend an additional $600, on top of vacation expenses?! The charges on my card were not even from Hertz, instead they were from Lifestyle Motors Ltd. What exactly is that? I selected Hertz because it was a name that I recognized & trusted but somehow ended up renting through a shady company with inept employees who have no idea what customer service is. Disappointed & disgusted.

Ease of rental on same day. However, my return of vehicle the next day was terrible. They found a scratch on car and decided not to release the $500 hold on my credit card. Still waiting for that to be resolved and the delay that morning caused me to be in the back of line for checkin to flight.

I’m not sure what relationship you have with the company I reserved in Piarco when I called the day before to confirm when I was arriving they informed me that sorry there would be no one at the desk and I would need to call back. There was no service no follow-up no alternatives just “no one will be here when you arrive”.. I had to make alternate arrangements. I’m just glad I called the day before oyherwise imwould have been sttanded….this is really bad service and I probably won’t use them again
