KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Santo Domingo

  • Renting a car for your time in Santo Domingo is definitely a good choice, as public transport is unreliable and often takes twice as long as going by car. Taxis can be very expensive and, unless you want to employ one of the carros pùblicos, which are taxis where various people are crammed in and dropped off one by one at their destination, a car is your best option.
  • Start your journey hassle-free and rent a car directly from the airport grounds of Santo Domingo Airport (SDQ). Located in the north terminal, there are various agencies who offer vehicles for all tastes. The airport is over 19 miles from the city center and public transport is not available directly from the airport, so driving by car is your best choice. Via the scenic coastline Autopista Las Americas, travelers will be in Santo Domingo’s center in about half an hour.
  • Most street signs in Santo Domingo are only stated in Spanish, so, unless you speak the language, it is advised to rent a GPS system with your hire car and also map out your journeys beforehand. Pedestrians are known to simply cross the road without looking, so drive defensively and attentively and always double-check before turning a corner or entering an intersection. Due to badly lit streets and cars driving without headlights, it is also not recommended to drive at night.
  • Santo Domingo’s traffic can be challenging to navigate in the increased peak times of around 7:30-9:30am and 5-7pm, as many commuters clog up the streets. Don’t be surprised when motorcyclists simply squeeze through cars lined up in traffic jams, as it is very common in Santo Domingo. The Expreso 27 de Febrero runs straight through the heart of the city to the coast line and should be avoided during rush hour.
  • Book your car hire in Santo Domingo at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Santo Domingo are around 80% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Santo Domingo 
maximeJan 2024
Driving in Dominican Republic is not as dangerous as you may read online. Just adapt your driving to the local rules, or absence of rules. It may seem chaotic, but there’s much consideration from all users.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Be careful driving in Dominican Republic. Also be careful with traffic police officers on the road. When you rent a car, they seem to stop you more than they would stop tourists even when driving under speed limit. Be mindful of speed limits.
JoseOct 2023
Not to rent at Alamo and go to another car rental. Always double check the car before leaving the airport and don’t ever stay quiet.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Buy the insurance as soon as you secure the car reservation.

Bad experience with my car and the agent lack of communication and knowledge. Was informed that the car was full and did not notice it was half of a tank. I will never again pay so much money and rent with Alamo car rental.

Pros:

The drop off was extremely easy and the staff very professional. I was very happy with the taxi offer.

Cons:

I was a bit surprised by the additional $500 deposit at the pickup location. The deposit was almost 250% more than the cost of the rental car itself - which only totaled $201. It would have been a little more comforting to know that this extra amount was required prior to arriving at the location. Knowing at booking allows for precise budgeting for the trip.

Pros:

I didn’t like anything.., When I got there, they told me that they didn’t recognize the insurance that I paid before I got there. Then, they increased the car prices and wanted to get the insurance from them for a lot of money, then another $500 down in case something happened... My question was how they can make people pay all that money for a liability insurance

Pros:

Nothing, the customer service sucked! My reservations were canceled due to time difference that I was not made aware of when booking plus they did not problem solve were very dismissive and said they had No cars at all.

Cons:

Customer service could have advised about the time difference plus the hold of vehicles. I should have been guided to other rental companies that would have given me a better deal. I had to figure it all out by myself. They guys there suck big time.

Cons:

We have paid but didn’t get a car! They rented out from under us. We were a day late due to a reschedule implemented by American Airlines. When we called to tell them when we would be picking it up, the lady hung up on us twice, we couldn’t get thru several times and finally we got a hold of someone who told us they rented it and had no more cars available. We need this rental credited back to us. Thanks

WORST RENTAL EXPERIENCE. Our flight was delayed and we arrived a few hours later than the pickup time at the AVIS counter at the airport. They just CANCELLED our reservation and offered us another car for three times the original price that was written in our contract. They had all our flight informations and were supposed to know about potential delays but they just ‘didn't check’… We had to rent another car, last minute, with another company for 50% more money and got a small city car instead of a (much needed for our trip) SUV. Again, WORST RENTAL EXPERIENCE!

The car's air conditioner was not up to the task of cooling the car during the sunniest, hottest parts of the days--this was true over several hours while cruising at highway speeds. Also, the suspension was pretty worn out. The car bounced around a lot over rough road surfaces.

Cons:

When we got to the airport, 3:15am, there were no representatives to tell us where to go. When we found the office, they told me they couldn’t use my credit card because “it doesn’t have numbers on the front”. After a 35 minute argument the guy finally caved and managed to “fix the system” that prevented him from completing the booking. I had declined insurance bc my travel card covers it and they were trying to get me to buy insurance. Anyways, just keep your wits about you. If they try to get crazy call the corporate office for budget...a little tough if you don’t have service though

KAYAK

Pros:

NOTHING!! IT WAS A COMPLETE RIP-OFF!!! DO NOT RENT FROM ECONOMY!! DO NOT RENT FROM AMERIRENT, WHICH IS AFFILIATED WITH ECONOMY! Wouldn't rent to me unless I bought liability and collision insurance, for which they wanted $840 on top of the $198 rental fee for the car for 13 days. I refused, and we went through a 2-hour haggling process where I kept refusing...mainly because I had ALREADY purchased the Allianz collision and liability protection online, when i booked the car. Their justification: A small line in the online reservation that said (approximately) "There may be various local charges which must be paid at the point of rental.' From that, they justified charging criminal prices. Ultimately, we couldn't argue with them forever. We finally skipped the collision coverage entirely, and received a 'discounted rate' for liability insurance of 'only' $240. RIP-OFF PRICING TACTICS!! i kept refusing the insurance, and polled several other rental counters...but they were all supporting each other by claiming cars were unavailable or asking outrageous prices. DO NOT RENT FROM ECONOMY!! DO NOT RENT FROM AMERIRENT, WHICH IS AFFILIATED WITH ECONOMY!

Cons:

An honest quote with fair pricing would resolve this problem entirely. DO NOT RENT FROM ECONOMY!! DO NOT RENT FROM AMERIRENT, WHICH IS AFFILIATED WITH ECONOMY! Classic bait and switch pricing tactics.

The staff were friendly, and the car was in good condition. However my rental was supposed to be $83.98 with the $300 deposit that was blocked on my card to be released on return of the car. The $300 is still out of my account nearly two weeks later. It has cost me $400 for renting a car for a few hours.

Despite making a reservation months in advance, I was told no car was available at the time of my reservation and was directed to wait over 3 hours for a car. The cost of the reservation online was about $500, but I was told at the counter the actual total cost would be about $900. Unacceptable business practices. I gave my business to a different rental car company for the entirety of my stay. I also watched a number of other people make the switch from Hertz to the other rental car company due to the same issues. Hertz lost plenty of business that day due to poor business practices and service.

Put a disclosure that in Dominican Republic there is an additional fee for their insurance. They ONLY use the insurance they provide and not the ones bought online or 3rd party. The insurance costs almost the same price of the total rental. Let’s say you paid 300 for the car rental + 120 for 3rd party insurance (total 420). Once you get there. They say they only take there insurance and they will NOT let their car out without their insurance. I asked how much. They said the total would $598 and I would have to try to cancel the 3rd party insurance. Hertz what a scam! Why can’t you disclose this before renting. I had to tell the guy to cancel the reservation and I went with another car company luckily they had a decent price for an all together package.

Pros:

The car was nice and comfortable.

Cons:

Upon our arrival we had to wait about an hour to be seen. The only person working was handling two transactions, a return and a rental. The car was given dirty on the outside so the scratches were hard to see. We didn’t realize the windshield had a crack in it until a few days later. Luckily I took a video of the car so we didn’t end up being liable for the damage. When we took the car back they said not to worry about it because I had the video. Once there, they told us the temp tags were expired, mind you we picked up the car on 5/2 and it expired 5/3. Why would they give a car with temp tags about to expire the following day? Our car rental was for 20 days. They said they kept trying to call us, I asked to what number and they said your US number, why would they call our US number when we’re in a different county. There was no excuse because they had all of our local information. They said someone would be by the following day to take the new temp plates. We waiting all day, no one showed up and no one even bothered to call. We tried calling them all day even to their emergency number and no one responded. How reassuring is that if we did have some sort of vehicle emergency and we couldn’t reach someone on their emergency number. Not until 2 days later after we kept calling that someone actually picked up and said someone would be by within the hour. We asked for a credit for the inconvenience and all they said was that the card had already been charged and that they couldn’t issue a credit. I work for a University and I handle payments, partial refunds can be issued if they wanted to. It was the most annoying experience ever. Wasted time and days waiting around so that we wouldn’t be stopped by the cops for expired temp plates. When we went to return the car the day we were leaving at 7:00am apparently they didn’t open until 8:00am. How do you have a car rental company where you don’t have someone on site 24 hours a day? After waiting a while a person finally showed up. Then he weren’t the one to process the lift of the $3,000 hold it was another person who wouldn’t be there until about an hour later. Considering our flight was at 10:00am we couldn’t wait around.

i had pew booked and prepaid my rental. When I got there they said it was mandatory to add their insurance despite having my own. Then there were extra fees. In total they tried to charge me almost 50% more than what I had already paid.

Pros:

Car was clean.

Cons:

Sixt are not very competent people. They say there is a "mandatory" insurance in the country. Funny how the other 20 rental car companies didn't do that. It also took them like an hour to figure out our rental. I saw like 3 other people go to the place next to us and out the door before us. In short, you haven't heard of Sixt because they won't be around long. Go to somebody you have heard of.

Pros:

The only positive thing was that they waited for me when I arrived. It was a headache with all the “fine print” and extra money that I had to put down to get the vehicle...

Cons:

On my way to the airport I was in a small fender bender & when I got to the airport I webt to check in, the receiver said he would be there waiting for me to sign. When I got back he was gone. The young lady that came to help me called the sup or mgr but she was no help either as they made me miss my flight, didnt accomadate me with anything, then said I could get another car for the day but I have to pay for it. Then I just noticed that the SUPER overcharged me for the fender bender. Something that here in the states would be a couple hundred, they took almost the entire deposit of the $1100 I put down for the car... the worst experience ever...

Cons:

Unexpected $17 per day "Mandatory" insurance even though I am covered by my MasterCard. This would have almost doubled my bill. I ended up not taking the car.

Pros:

I didn’t like anything. We were told when we got to Santo Domingo that they didn’t have a van for us. They had the reservation but no van available to us. We asked when would they have one available they said nothing for the next week. So we ended up paying double the price for the rental. My question is is this a hustle from Kayak and enterprise or just kayak?

Cons:

Have honest people work for kayak

Pros:

I had issues in the past at DR about the rental Carrara reservations. This time with Enterprise at SDQ airport was very easy and efficient. Pick-up and drop off was very easy. They did not play games like some other companies. Staff were friendly and quick. Thanks for the good service...

Cons:

I think ,they should place proper signs after the airport exit to show where the rental cars pick-up area and drop-off area.

Pros:

Nothing. I didn't get a car. I noticed this was a trend in the Santo Domingo rental car pickup. Kayak needs to do a better job of warning people that Santo Domingo's rental car companies are difficult to work with. I rented from 3 different places and none of them had cars.

Cons:

Everything. I didn't get a car because the guy at the counter said they didn't have any. This also happened at Alamo and Avis. How does Kayak not have a grip on this? Is this a scam that the rental companies are running out of Santo Domingo? Or is Kayak's inventory system flawed? I'd love to know.

Had to pay for DR insurance as opposed to the insurance I already paid for. If I used the 3rd party, they were going to put a hold of $1500 on my card. I didn’t want to later on them charge my card for those $1500 so I used their insurance so I paid another $100 plus a hold of $200 then I did when I booked.

KAYAK

Cons:

The rental web site offers insurance. The rental agency does not accept the insurance you purchase on the rental web site, and requires you to purchase another, much more expensive, policy before renting the vehicle: no locally purchased policy, no rental! The rental agency suggested calling (international) the insurance company which provides the insurance offered on the rental web site to cancel the policy - not very practical. A rip off coming and going. Dollar and Kayak should be more transparent in what is offered through their services.

They didn't give any kind of upgrade or refund for the lesser car they gave us for that day. The charges us 14 dollars a day for a gps when the car the next day had a gps installed in it. When I tried to turn it in at punta cana they said to turn it in at the end in Santo Domingo and then in Santo Domingo they said we should have turned it in at the dollar in punta cana. They sold us additional insurance saying that they could not rent us a car without it even though I already had a policy in hand which had better protection than that which they sold me. Overall terrible renting experience.

Pros:

Car was ok. Clean and responsive. Didn't have any issues while I had it. No mechanical problems.

Cons:

When I got there to pick up the car I was told that I to pay a different price no with exceptions. So I reserved the car from home for a set price because it was what I could afford only to end up having to pay twice as much once I picked up the car. Also when I went to pick up the vehicle I had to wait forever because the attendant was nowhere to be found. The receptionist who attended me with the paperwork had to get out and get the car herself after I kept coming back to tell her that I was still waiting. The gentleman who was assigned to get the car was practically only a few feet from me sitting on a chair sleeping and pretending he didn't work there.. Horrible service. Just horrible. As for the car it was scratched all over with many dents all around including the at the hood as if someone beat it with a baseball bat. Also had horrible paint job on the back. You can see the yellow stains protruding from the original white paint and the windshield was cracked. But at least the car did its job to take me from point A to point B without any problems..
