General Requirements For Renting A Car In Jamaica

Car Rental In Jamaica

Before you begin to think about renting a car in Jamaica, there are certain criteria that you must meet.

  • You must be between the ages of 23 to 75 years old. Some companies will go as low as the age of 21 but at an additional charge.
  • Have your license for at least one (1) year. The number of years may vary up to three (3) years. You don’t need an international license in Jamaica.
  • A valid credit card such as Master Card or Visa. The expiration date should be anytime after the drop off date of the rental car.
  • You must rent the car for at least 24 hours.
  • A coverage charge that is used for insurance against damages and theft.

Jamaica Car Rental Prices

In Jamaica, the price to rent a car will range from US$35 to US250 per day. Of course this price depends on a variety of things.

A medium to midsized vehicle is the cheapest followed by a premium full sized car then a sports utility vehicle. The most expensive will be a minivan.

Do you prefer a particular brand? You will find that Toyota Corrolla and Nissan Sunny are cheaper than Honda Civics and Toyota Camrys.

Would you like leather seats, air conditioner and a fully powered vehicle? The more features that are in the vehicle the more the vehicle will likely cost.

The longer you rent a car the cheaper the price will be. Most car rental companies in Jamaica will offer discounts when your rental is for more than three (3) days. If you rent longer than seven (7) days, you will enjoy greater savings.

Most companies will quote you a price that should include rental fee, insurance and value added tax (V.A.T.). Be sure to ask so that you are not surprised when it is time to make payment.

There are times when you may require special features such as child seats, roof rack or a car with manual transmission. Ensure that you make these special arrangements at least 3 days before you are schedule to pick up your car.

Speaking of collecting the car, some of the companies listed at the end of this page will deliver and collect the car regardless of where you are in Jamaica. Again, some will charge a fee while some won’t.

Jamaica Car Rental Insurance Coverage

Depending on the Jamaica car rental company, insurance coverage will vary for loss, theft and damage. Ensure that you read through the plans and choose the best one that matches your needs.

You will have to submit your credit card information so that they can make a hold on the card in case of any incidentals.

Some credit card companies offer motor car insurance. Check with your credit card company and find out if you qualify for coverage in Jamaica. If you do, you should not have to pay any additional charges.

Tips For Renting A Car In Jamaica

  • Remember that we drive on the left hand side of the road.
  • Carefully read through your contract before you sign it.
  • Check your insurance coverage and ensure that you are comfortable with what you are getting.
  • You are usually given the car with a full tank of gas and I suggest that you return it just the same. If you don’t, they will charge you to refill the tank and it will be much more expensive if they do. So stop by a gas station when you are returning the motor car and full up the tank.
  • Call around for the best price. There are over 45 registered car rental companies in Jamaica. Please do some form of research before you arrive.
  • Make arrangements with the company before you reach Jamaica so that you can have the car on arrival or at your desired time.
  • It is best to make your reservation online instead of trying to rent a car on arrival. When you wait the last minute, you really don’t have time to shop around and so you will have to settle for the prices that you are offered.
  • Drive carefully and treat the car like your own.
  • Every passenger in the car should wear a seat belt.
