Top tips for hiring a car in Antigua And Barbuda

  • Having your own car is the best way to see Antigua and Barbuda. In particular, Barbuda doesn't have any public transportation, so you'll need to rely on taxis otherwise. Antigua does have privately owned buses that run routes across the island, but having your own vehicle will let you travel on your own schedule. This is particularly important if you have limited time to explore. Fig Tree Drive is one of the most popular driving routes in Antigua, taking you through scenic rainforests.
  • If you're planning on booking car hire in Antigua and Barbuda, bear in mind that you'll need to book separate vehicles on each island. There is no car ferry between the islands, so you'll need to drop your car off, take the passenger ferry across and pick up a new one. Most major and local companies have offices in Saint John's on Antigua and if you're headed to Barbuda, you'll often need to book with a local company. If you book in advance, you can often ask your Barbuda car hire company to meet you at River Wharf, where the ferry arrives.
  • Before you get on the road in Antigua and Barbuda, you'll need to get a local driving licence. Normal or international driving licences can't be used here; instead, you'll have to purchase a local licence from your Antigua and Barbuda car hire company (or from a police station). You'll need to present your usual licence when you get a local licence and present both if you're pulled over at any point during your trip. It should cost around XCD 50 (GBP 15), and you'll generally need to pay in cash.
  • Child seats should be used for children aged seven or under in Antigua and Barbuda. Most companies can provide child seats or booster seats as part of your booking, but you can also bring your own if you prefer. Note that some companies offer lightweight vehicles that may not be suitable for child seats.
  • Book your rental car in Antigua And Barbuda at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Antigua And Barbuda are around 5% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What is driving like in Antigua and Barbuda?

    When driving in Antigua and Barbuda, you'll drive on the left side of the road. Major roads are generally in good condition but you may encounter potholes. Additionally, be prepared to slow down for animals, such as donkeys, when necessary. You may encounter some particularly winding roads, but as the speed limit is quite low, they're generally easy to navigate. Finally, don't be surprised if you hear people sounding their horns a lot. It is used more often as a greeting than as a warning or in anger.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Antigua and Barbuda?

    You'll usually need to be at least 21 years old to book a hire car in Antigua and Barbuda, and drivers under 25 are often charged a 'young driver's surcharge'. Don't forget to bring your normal driving licence and your Antigua driving licence if you've already picked it up.

  • How are petrol prices in Antigua and Barbuda?

    Petrol generally costs around XCD 2.80 (roughly GBP 0.80) for a litre and about XCD 10.40 (GBP 3) for a gallon. Petrol stations are typically full service, so an attendant will fill your car up for you. You'll usually pay the attendant directly and it's best to have cash available, as they may not accept cards. Some stations can also provide extra services such as tyre changes.

  • What are the speed limits in Antigua and Barbuda?

    You'll be taking it slow when driving on these islands. The limit in built-up areas is usually just 20 mph and can be as low as 10 mph. The limit on other roads is typically either 30 mph or 40 mph. You'll want to make sure you stick to this limit, both to avoid fines and to avoid any damage to your car that might be caused by potholes or speed bumps.
