Top tips for hiring a car in Jamaica

  • Public transport in Jamaica can be slow and unreliable, meaning that those who wish to explore widely will find it convenient to rent a car. It is possible to circle the entire island using the coastal highway or to make side trips into popular locations like the Blue Mountains. The majority of rental agencies, including Island Car Rental, Firefly, and Alamo, allow for one-way rentals, meaning it’s possible to rent a car in Jamaica in your arrival city and drop it off in another. Wherever you choose to go, it is highly recommended to avoid driving at night.
  • Renting a car in Jamaica is expensive compared to other Caribbean locations, but it is possible to avoid high fees by picking a car brand or model that is less popular on the island; e.g., go with a Toyota Corolla rather than a Camry. Those planning to drive a lot on mountain or rural roads may find it helpful to have a four-wheel drive or a manual transmission vehicle.
  • In Jamaica, children up to the age of four are required to be seated in an appropriate booster or child seat, whether they are placed in the front or rear seat of the car. In addition, the driver is responsible for ensuring that all passengers in the car are wearing seatbelts; hefty fines are in place for those who disobey this rule. Some car agencies like Budget are able to provide child seats for around 781 JMD (6 USD) extra per day, but these need to be booked and confirmed well in advance.
  • As of 2019, new road laws were introduced to Jamaica to try to make driving safer. New laws include a prohibition on the use of cell phones or other communication devices in cars, and a raft of new (and expensive) fines for traffic violations, including the failure to use the blinker when turning.
