KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Saint Helier

  • When you get a car hire in Saint Helier you will get more flexibility than if you used another form of transport, such as a bus, train or taxi. This is because a car hire offers you the freedom to come and go as you please, rather than relying on train and bus timetables or waiting for a taxi to arrive. For instance, if you wanted to go to Le Saut Falluet in your car you could do so in about 13min. The alternative would be to take a bus, which would take around 40min, and you’d also have to abide by the schedule.
  • Jersey Airport (JER) has a range of car hire companies for you to pick from, such as Hertz, Avis and Budget, so it won’t take you long to find your perfect car. The car hire companies are easy to locate upon arrival too. For instance, Hertz and Avis are located in close proximity of the small terminal once you’ve collected your bags and gone into the Arrivals hall.
  • When you get a car hire in Saint Helier you will see that the city is very busy with tourists. The city centre can get especially busy in the summer months. So you need to take extra care when driving as people often cross the roads in parts of the city which are designate pedestrian crossings. There are also a lot of cyclists in Jersey, with Saint Helier being no exception. For this reason it’s very important to check your mirrors regularly, especially when turning.
  • When you get your Saint Helier car hire you will find that the centre of the city can be very busy to drive in. The busiest times on the roads tend to be from 6 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., which are when rush hour is. If you don’t like driving at busy times then you should try and avoid the roads during these hours. One of the busiest roads in the city is La Route du Fort, which goes through the heart of Saint Helier. So, if possible, it’s always good to try and find an alternative route rather than drive on this road.
  • Book your car hire in Saint Helier at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Not having driven a Toyota before there were a couple of little things which caused me problems and where an instruction handout might of helped. These were: how to start the car (you have to depress the clutch) and where is the thing to open the petrol filler cap is (on floor by driver's seat).
