Car hire driving information Jamaica

Driving Overview

General Information
It is wonderful to explore Jamaica with car hire. This 243 km long island has fantastic beaches and nice little villages. If you wish to listen to local music visit Kingston with your rental car. Be aware of the local driving style though. Keep a big distance to cars and drive defensively. 

To rent a car, you must be at least 21 years old (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 1 year. For drivers under the age of 22 an additional young driver surcharge may apply locally. The maximum rental age is 70 years. Seatbelts and child seats are mandatory. 

Speed Limits
Speed limits in Jamaica are:

  • Town and city: 50 km/h (30 mph)
  • Open Roads: 80 km/h (50 mph)

Traffic restrictions
In Jamaica you drive on the left side of the road, just like in Ireland. Avoid driving during the night and always keep your windows and doors closed and locked. Also do not carry with you large amount of cash or other items of value. The signing as well as the quality of many roads is poor. Plan your trip carefully.

There are many petrol stations in Jamaica. Bring cash, since all stations might not accept credit cards.

The "Highway 2000" is a toll road. You pay the toll either by cash or with a TAG card.  

Parking is normally hard to find in the bigger cities. Many hotels and shopping centres offer secure parking. Avoid parking on the street during the night.

Insurance Information

General Information
Car rental insurance varies widely, so please study the information below prior to making your booking. Regulations of the country where you rent the car will be in effect for the duration of your rental.

All our car hire rates include Collision Damage coverage and Theft Protection for the vehicle. Rental limits potential vehicle damage or loss liability to an excess, which is stated on your voucher. If you plan to take advantage of coverage offered by your credit card, please contact your card issuer directly for details. Specific insurance information for your reservation will be printed on your confirmation voucher.

Rental Restrictions

General Information
When you hire a car in Jamaica you are not allowed to take it abroad or on any ferry. Domestic one-way rentals are free of charge but require a 3 day minimum rental period.

International one ways are not allowed.
