Top tips for renting a car in Tobago

  • If you want to start your adventure in Tobago as soon as you land in the region, consider landing at ANR Robinson International Airport (TAB). Major car rental companies like Avis, Budget, and Hertz are present at the airport. These companies offer various car options, including sedans, SUVs, and compact cars, to suit different preferences and travel needs. The rental counters are in the arrivals area of the airport terminal. After arriving at TAB airport, you can follow the "Car Rental" or "Rent-a-Car" signs to reach the car rental counters.
  • As a relatively small and less densely populated island than its sister island Trinidad, Tobago generally experiences less traffic congestion and traffic jams. However, there can be some traffic congestion in certain areas and at specific times, especially during rush hours when residents drive to and from work. On weekdays, congestion occurs between 7:00 am and 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Areas with more traffic during peak times include Crown Point, Scarborough, Pigeon Point Road, and Buccoo.
  • The type of car you should drive in Tobago depends on your travel preferences, the places you plan to visit, and the number of passengers you will be traveling with. If traveling alone or with a small group, a compact car or a small hatchback can be a practical and fuel-efficient option for navigating the island's roads and urban areas. However, if you plan to explore more remote or hilly sites in Tobago, an SUV or a crossover with good ground clearance can be advantageous.
  • Tobago follows the seat belt and child safety rules strictly. For instance, it is mandatory for the driver and all front-seat passengers to always wear seat belts while the vehicle is in motion. For example, children under five years must be secured in an appropriate child safety seat when traveling in a car. On the other hand, those between the ages of 5 and 12 years must use an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat suitable for their age, height, and weight when traveling in a vehicle.

  • Should I rent a car in Tobago?

    Renting a car in Tobago offers several advantages over relying on public transportation. A rental car provides door-to-door transportation, eliminating the need to wait for buses or taxis and reducing travel time between attractions. Also, public buses can get crowded, especially during peak hours or on popular routes. Having a car provides a more private and comfortable travel experience. Most importantly, some of the most beautiful and secluded attractions in Tobago may not have direct public transportation access. Therefore, a rental car allows you to reach gems such as Pigeon Point, Argyle Waterfall, and Buccoo Reef.

  • What is driving like in Tobago?

    Like in Trinidad and Tobago, people drive on the left side of the road in Tobago. If you are from a country where driving is on the right, it may take some time to adjust. Speed limits are typically posted along the roads, generally in kilometers per hour (km/h). In urban areas, the speed limit is typically 50 km/h (31 mph), and on open roads, it can range from 80 km/h (50 mph) to 100 km/h (62 mph). Always adhere to the speed limits for safety and to avoid fines.

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

    The minimum age to rent a car in Tobago is usually 21. However, some rental companies may have higher minimum age requirements, and drivers under a certain age may be subject to young driver surcharges. Furthermore, you must have a valid driver's license from your home country. If your license is not in English, you may need to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) and your original driver's license. Lastly, you will need a valid credit card in the name of the primary driver to secure the rental.
