Top tips for hiring a car in Saint Lucia

  • If you are looking for the best parking spots in Saint Lucia, the capital Castries offers several paid parking spaces and car lots, which cost between 1.50 and 3 XCD (0.56-1.11 USD) an hour, while at Rodney Bay in the Gros Islet area, you can park along the roadside. Elsewhere on the island, you may park anywhere, as long as you are not obstructing anything.
  • If you plan to bring your children on vacation to Saint Lucia, you will need to bring a car seat, because children younger than seven must use a car seat. Children are required to sit in a car seat as soon as they leave the airport. You will have the opportunity to rent one from your car hire company for about 15 XCD (5 USD) per day.
  • Offering independent travel and flexibility, renting a car in Saint Lucia is the best way to see the Caribbean island. Rather than relying on group tours and avoiding the high taxi fares, you can comfortably drive around the whole island in a day. Driving from Gros Islet in the north to Vieux Fort in the south is 67.8 km (42 mi) and should take around 1h 30m in a car.
  • Because Saint Lucia lacks road signs, it is a good idea to invest in a GPS. You may rent one from your car hire agency for around 30 XCD (11 USD) per day. This will help you negotiate much of the island’s rural and mountain roads, which require the use of a four-wheel drive vehicle. You might consider renting an off-road car if you plan to visit the more remote areas, like Anse Cochon Beach.
