If you rent a car in Curacao, you will drive on the right side of the road. Everyone riding in the car must wear a seatbelt, regardless of age; furthermore, it is illegal to drive with a child under 12 years old in the passenger seat. For tourists, a valid US driver’s license alone is sufficient to operate a rental car.
For most companies, you need to be at least 21 years old with 2 years of experience to rent a car in Curacao, though with some companies, like National, you have to be 23 or older (maximum age 70 with Sixt). Drivers under the age of 25 will incur a fee, which varies among companies and is based on the type of car selected; but if you are traveling with someone older who drives, then this fee can be avoided.
