Top tips for hiring a car in Trinidad and Tobago

  • Renting a car in Trinidad and Tobago can be a good way to explore the islands, allowing for maximum flexibility and saving time where public transport might be slow or unreliable. Having a rental car allows visitors to access areas such as the Asia Wright Nature Centre bird sanctuary in Trinidad or hidden beaches like Englishman’s Bay on Tobago. The coastal road, which circles around Tobago, is a popular route for a one-day road trip.
  • When parking in Trinidad and Tobago, it is very important to not leave any valuables in your car, even if out of sight. When possible, you should always park in a secure, off-road lot and consider fitting a steering wheel lock as a visible deterrent.
  • By law, children under five years of age must be seated in an appropriate restraint when traveling in a car in Trinidad and Tobago. They must also never be seated in the front seat of the vehicle. Rental agencies can provide child or baby seats when booked in advance; expect to pay an additional daily fee of around TTD 40.50 (6 USD) with an international agency like Sixt.
  • If you choose to rent a car in Trinidad and Tobago, it may be worth asking the rental agency about traffic signals before setting off. Many local drivers use hand signals instead of signal or brake lights to indicate that they are about to turn or slow down. If in doubt about what a hand signal means, it is smart to slow down and keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you.
