KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ocho Rios

  • Car hire in Ocho Rios offers enhanced flexibility and freedom that you don’t get with other methods of transport. You can come and go as you please, rather than waiting on the schedules of public transport, as well as travel directly to your destination. For instance, you can drive to St Ann’s Bay in about 15min, which is a journey that’s not possible via public transport, so you would need to wait for a taxi.
  • Kingston Airport (KIN) is nearby to Ocho Rios and has a range of car hire companies to pick from. Once you have landed, passed through immigration and collected your baggage, you can find your ideal agency with ease. For instance, Island Car Hire is located in the airport terminal, whilst agencies such as Hertz are a quick journey away on the free shuttle. Your Ocho Rios car hire provider will provide you with your vehicle once you have completed the required paperwork, shown your ID, and paid for your car.
  • Using car hire in Ocho Rios, you will find that it is a popular resort town that is filled with tourists. With jaywalking not illegal in Jamaica, you can expect tourists and locals to cross the road in areas that aren’t designated for pedestrians. Therefore, it’s important that you drive vigilantly in the centre of the town. You will also notice there are a lot of mopeds in the town, as it’s a popular way to explore the island. Remember to regularly check your mirrors so that you’re aware of your immediate surroundings.
  • When driving an Ocho Rios hire car, you will see that roads can be very busy, especially in peak season. This is only enhanced when a ferry arrives at the port, leading to taxis arriving in abundance to collect excited tourists. If you want to avoid the busiest times on the road, it’s recommended that you consult the arrival timetables for cruises. The A3 is one of the busiest roads on the island, with it running parallel with the coast and through Ocho Rios. An alternative road you can try for less traffic is Great Pond Road, which is further inland.
  • Book your car hire in Ocho Rios at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Ocho Rios are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff were excellent and very helpful. Good small car...just what we wanted Free drop off at our hotel after returning car

Cons:

1. we were not told that AVIS would collect us from our nearby hotel to pick up the car. Why was that? Instead we paid around £15 for a taxi! 2. AVIS insisted that they did not recognise our private car hire insurance with Questor and had to pay $16 per day for AVIS insurance. I wish to complain!
