Top tips for hiring a car in Roatan Island

  • Roatan Island is known for having many cyclists, motorcycles, and scooters, so you will want to keep this in mind when you are operating a vehicle in the region. Make sure to drive with particular caution and drive as slowly as you can while still keeping up with traffic. You may not instantly see someone on a scooter or motorcycle when driving in the mountains where there are blind curves, so it is always best to be careful and as aware of your surroundings as possible.
  • The type of car that you should rent during your stay on Roatan Island will entirely depend on which part of the region you will be exploring. If you mainly plan on staying in a city or a village, an economy vehicle can come in handy for navigating smaller roads and parking in tight areas. If you want to go on long drives or will be driving in the mountains at all, you will likely want a larger car that has 4-wheel drive, in order to provide extra stability.
  • When driving on Roatan Island, it is best to limit your time behind the wheel during the day as much as you possibly can. The island has very few streetlamps, so it is quite dark at night. Because much of the island is mountainous and there are many blind turns, it is safest to drive during the day when you can be confident that you have as much visibility as possible.
  • Roatan Island is known for having quite a few potholes, so keep your eyes open for these when you are driving. They can do some major damage to your car if you drive over them at full speed, so it is best to avoid driving through them altogether, or at the very least to limit your speed.
  • Book your car hire in Roatan Island at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Roatan Island are around 29% cheaper than other car types, on average

    Roatan Island is rather rural and does not have an extensive public transportation system that connects most areas. Because of this, it is best to rent a car in order to move throughout the island. You will also be able to move around on your own schedule. Having your own vehicle will not only make it easy to visit different sights but will also allow you to easily transport your luggage and any recreational equipment you may need for going to the beach or taking a bike ride.

  • What is driving like on Roatan Island?

    Roatan Island has many small, narrow, and winding streets, so you will want to pay as much attention as possible when driving. The roads also have quite a few potholes and are not well-lit, so you will want to make sure that you drive slowly and with caution. Make sure to pay particular attention if you are driving during the rain, as the roads tend to become particularly slippery and it may be extra difficult to see.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car on Roatan Island?

    If you would like to rent a car on Roatan Island, you will need to be a minimum of 21 years old. Keep in mind that if you are between the ages of 21 and 25, you may be required to pay an additional fee to your rental agency for each day of your rental period. In addition to being at least 21 years old, you will need to have a valid driver's license for the duration of your rental period, as well as your passport. The company that you are renting with will likely need to make a copy of your passport to keep with your file.
