Tips for renting a car in Jamaica

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Jamaica including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 13 June 2024.
  • When driving with children in Jamaica, you will want to make sure that you are up to date with the country’s car seat requirements. Jamaica does not have specific laws mandating the use of child car seats. However, it's important to note that child safety is paramount when travelling, and it is highly recommended to use appropriate child safety seats regardless of the local laws. If you are not able to travel with your own car or booster seat, you can usually rent one from your selected car rental company.
  • Jamaica does not require visitors to have an International Driving Permit (IDP) to rent a car. Most car rental agencies in Jamaica accept a valid driver's license from your home country as long as it is in English. Some rental companies might have their own requirements, so it's advisable to check with them in advance to ensure that you have all the necessary documents for renting a car in Jamaica. You will also want to make sure that you always have your passport on hand whenever you are driving.
  • The country is known for being quite warm and humid, so you will want to make sure that you rent a vehicle that has air conditioning. In addition, always make sure that the air conditioning works properly in the car that you have been provided with before you leave the rental facility. This amenity will be a life saver for when you are trying to keep cool on the road and do not want to have your vehicle’s windows wide open.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Jamaica, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 13 June 2024.
  • Should I rent a car in Jamaica?

    Outside of main cities like Kingston, you will generally not find much in terms of public transport in Jamaica. Public transportation within big cities can also be slow and unreliable. In addition, you will very rarely find options for moving from city to city other than using a private vehicle. Because of this, having access to your own car in Jamaica is a necessity. If you plan to explore remote or less touristy parts of Jamaica, such as the Blue and John Crow Mountains, having a car provides flexibility and access to places that might not be well-served by public transportation.

  • What is driving like in Jamaica?

    Driving in Jamaica can be a unique experience that requires adaptation to local road conditions, driving habits, and traffic rules. Road conditions in Jamaica can vary significantly. Major highways and roads connecting popular tourist destinations are generally well-maintained, but rural roads may be narrower and less smooth. Traffic congestion can occur in urban areas, especially during peak hours. Jamaican drivers can be assertive, and local driving habits might be different from what you're used to. Be prepared for aggressive overtaking and sudden maneuvers. Honking is a common form of communication among drivers. It can indicate various messages, such as warning others or expressing impatience. Route taxis are common and can stop anywhere along their route to pick up or drop off passengers. Be aware of these frequent stops if you're driving behind one.

  • What is the age requirement to rent a car in Jamaica?

    The required age of drivers to rent a car in Jamaica varies among rental agencies, but it is typically 23 years old. However, there may be some rental agencies in the country that allow drivers as young as 21 to rent a car, but often with additional fees and restrictions for drivers under 25 due to the increased risk that is often associated with younger drivers.
