Top tips for hiring a car in Antigua

  • Enjoy an awesome adventure cruising around the island of Antigua at your own pace. The main roads on the island are of good quality, so, if you plan to stick to them, then you will only need a two-wheel drive car. If you plan to go off-road, though, then a 4X4 might be more appropriate. Should you be mainly sticking to towns, then a smaller car will help you find it easier to park.
  • When you are getting a car hire in Antigua, it’s important that you abide by the rules of the road to avoid getting in trouble with the police. Drink-driving is taken seriously on the island, and police will perform a breath test should they suspect you have alcohol in your system. The legal limit is 0.8 mg of alcohol per ml of blood, so if you are found to be above this, you will be prosecuted accordingly. You must also ensure that everyone in the car is wearing a seat belt or will risk being fined. Whilst there are no laws in place for travelling with children, car hire companies provide child seats to enhance the comfort and safety of your children during your holiday.
  • Whilst you can easily drive around the island in one day, you still want to make sure that you have a full tank of petrol to do so. In the north of the island, around St John’s and the airport, you’ll find there to be a lot of petrol stations where you can fill up. But as you drive away from this part of the island, petrol stations become less frequent, especially in the south. You’ll find it easy to avoid running out of petrol, though, as long as you plan ahead.
  • Book your car hire in Antigua at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in Antigua

  • Should I hire a car in Antigua?

    You should hire a car in Antigua as it is a great way to explore the island compared to that of other transport methods, such as bus or taxi. For example, if you are staying in St John’s and you want to drive to Devil’s Bridge National Park, a natural bridge caused by erosion from the Atlantic Ocean, then it will take about 42min by car. If you planned to take a bus, then this would take much longer. In addition, a taxi would be quite an expensive way to complete this return journey.

  • What is driving like in Antigua?

    You will find it quite easy to drive in Antigua, as they also drive on the same side of the road as the United Kingdom. In addition, the steering wheel is on the right side of the vehicle, so you will find it easy to change gears with your left hand. Speed limits on the island are slower to what you are used to in the UK, so you need to remain vigilant that you don’t drive too fast. In urban areas the speed limit is 20 mph, whilst in rural areas, the speed limit is 40 mph. This is the maximum speed at which you are allowed to travel on the island, as there are no motorways. Mobile speed cameras are enforced on the island to catch those who do not abide by the rules.

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

    You need to ensure that you meet the minimum age requirements when you are hiring a car in Antigua. It’s recommended that you check the car hire agencies before you arrive, as their policies are likely to vary. In general, you need to be at least 21 years of age to hire a car in Antigua, with many agencies also having a surcharge in place for drivers under a certain age, such as 25. In addition, many car hire companies will reduce the selection of cars that younger drivers can choose from, as they reserve cars with larger engines for more experienced drivers.
