Top tips for hiring a car in Aruba

  • The northern coastal region of Aruba is generally off the beaten track, and the best spots are accessible only by rough, unpaved roads. For this reason, it might be a good idea to get a 4x4 or off-road vehicle if you wish to tackle the terrain. However, if you’re spending most of your time in and around Oranjestad, then the standard rental car will be better.
  • Families traveling with young children will be happy to know that many of the car rental agencies in Aruba provide child seats, many of them free of charge. This means that you won’t need to pack your own along with your luggage. You should, however, check to see that it is properly functioning and ready for use before you leave the rental lot.
  • While it is free to park at the beach, there are very specific parking laws in Oranjestad due to the lack of adequate spaces. Regular parking spaces are designated by a white stripe and are individually numbered, while spaces with yellow stripes are for people with permits or for employees. Best of all, you can purchase a Smartcard or use US coins to pay for parking.
  • In most cases, all you need to rent a car in Aruba is a valid driver’s license from your home country or state of residence, so there is no need to obtain an international driver’s permit. Some agencies require you to return your car to an "off-site" location; so, if you rent a car from Oranjestad Airport, choose a rental agency that allows you to drop it off there before you fly.
  • Book your car hire in Aruba at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Aruba are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average
