Generally, most rental car agencies require drivers to be at least 21 years old to rent a car. However, some companies may have higher age requirements, such as 25 or 30, and may charge additional fees for drivers under a certain age. A valid driver's license is essential. The license must be in English or accompanied by an International Driving Permit (IDP) in a non-Roman alphabet or language. Make sure your driver's license is valid for the entire duration of your rental period.
Gas prices in Saint Barthélemy tend to be higher than in many other countries and regions. This is primarily due to the island's remote location, limited local supply, and transportation costs. Additionally, Saint Barthélemy relies heavily on imported petroleum products, which further contributes to the higher prices. The pump prices for petrol/diesel are €6.50 ($7.10) per liter. The island has only two gas stations; one near the airport and one in Lorient.
Speed limits in Saint Barthélemy can vary in specific areas or on certain roads, so paying attention to the posted signs is crucial.

Meanwhile, the maximum speed limit on open roads outside built-up areas is typically 80 km/h (50 mph). This limit applies to rural roads and highways without specific lower-speed limit signs.
