Top tips for renting a car in Dominica

  • One of the advantages of Dominica car rentals is that, other than cabs, rental cars tend to be the only way to travel around the island; there is no official public transportation for visitors to utilize. A rental car is more cost effective than a cab, too, especially if you are staying for several days or longer.
  • Parents traveling with young kids should know that there isn’t an official requirement for children to be in booster seats; however, it is highly recommended to use them wherever possible. When renting a car, you can check with the rental company to ensure they can provide booster seats that are suitable sizes for your kids.
  • While there are lots of paved roads in Dominica, some of the terrain may be less suitable. Driving conditions tend to get worse the farther away you get from more populated areas. Due to the rugged terrain of the island and a high amount of rainfall, there are few good quality roads. When getting Dominica car rentals, you may want to rent an SUV, which has all-wheel drive capabilities to take on a range of surfaces.
  • If you want to get a car in Dominica, it is important to remember this island is a popular cruise ship destination. For that reason, you might find the rental car durations tend to only be for a matter of hours, rather then days, so that cruise ship guests are accommodated while they are visiting. Therefore rental prices can be quite expensive should you want a vehicle for a day or longer.

  • What is driving like in Dominica?

    You will drive on the left side of the road in this country, as opposed to the right, as in the U.S. The roads are winding and narrow, often with steep drop-offs, so it’s very important to take care when hiring a vehicle in this country. There aren’t many stoplights or road signs in Dominica, so you will need to use your experience on the road and remain vigilant throughout the time you are driving. Most roads are only a single lane, which can make passing other vehicles difficult. You will also notice a lot of honking horns in Dominica, with it being a customary act of announcing your presence to other vehicles and pedestrians.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Dominica?

    Most rental car companies require you to be at least 25 years old and have held your driving license for at least two years in order to rent. Drivers that are under 30 years of age will often face young driver surcharges and be restricted on the types and models of the cars they can rent.

  • How are gas prices in Dominica?

    On average, a gallon of gas is likely to cost just over EC$13.50 (US$5) in Dominica, and a liter will cost just over EC$3.50 (US$1.30). The currency in Dominica is the East Caribbean Dollar, of which there are about EC$2.70 to each U.S. dollar. One thing that is important to remember is that the majority of gas stations are located on the coastal roads, so if you’re going inland, you must ensure you have enough gas to get you to your destination.

  • What are the speed limits in Dominica?

    All speed limits in this country are in kilometers per hour, as opposed to miles, as in the U.S. On urban and rural roads, the top speed limit is about 50 km/hour (31 mph). If you’re on a motorway, the maximum speed is 80 km/h (50 mph). There are mobile speed cameras in this country, which will catch you if you’re going above the limit. Should this happen, the car hire agency will charge you for the fine and an administrative fee.
