I will now suggest the best Jamaican car rental companies to you. That is assuming you have already decided that Jamaica is the place to be for your vacation destination.

But just before I do, I must remind you that, like most car rentals you are familiar with, you still need to do your due diligence to ensure sure you get a great deal - please.

And by great deal I not only mean a good price and the right car, but also good service and support. [See Cheap Car Hire in Jamaica ]

We have all kinds of cars in Jamaica, but you will tend to find mostly modern Japanese type sedans. These are perfectly adequate for our roads. In fact, I was reading somewhere else where they mentioned that a big car can actually be a liability on our narrow and winding roads.

Four wheel drives however are probably needed for the interior- which is where you will experience the real Jamaica anyways.

Some of the TOP names in the business include:

  • Apex Car Rentals, (876) 952-7587
  • Avis Rent a Car, (888) 888-AVIS
  • Budget Jamaica Ltd, (877) 825-2953
  • Bargain Rent a Car, (876) 952-0762
  • Caribbean Car Rentals,(800) 917-9904
  • Chalis Car Rentals, (876) 952-9361
  • Effay Car Rentals, (866) 978-6219
  • Fiesta Car Rentals, (800) 934-3782
  • Horizon Car Rentals, (876) 952-0185
  • Island Car Rentals, (888) 991-4255
  • Mid Island Car Rentals, (876) 961-2363
  • Prospective Car Rentals, (876) 952-3524
  • Sunshine Car Rentals, (876) 974-2980
  • Triple 'A' Car Rentals, (876) 974-2859

And yes, most of them are pretty good, but one I would not hesitate to recommend to you is Island Car Rentals.

Not only do they have the most respected name in vehicle rentals in Jamaica, they have a great staff. Ms Laura Lee in Kingston, comes to my mind. Moreover, they offer affordable prices too!

If interested, you can get a free quotation from Island Car rentals here. They will be happy to get back to you.

And before you go, here are some useful advice

Always remember to drive on the left and watch your speed limit; the local police are merciless to a speeding motorist.

Bear in mind also that some of our taxi drivers are perhaps not as disciplined as you are familiar with, so that may take a little getting to.

You may also hear a few horns hunking and see headlights flicker every now and then, these are some ways our drivers say 'Hello' to each other.

Service stations are abundant and many open 24 hours, so you can always replenish your fuel. Additionally, most if not all, accept international credit cards, but I would recommend you keep some local cash for this.

And by the way, many of our popular attractions are right off the main road so you can't miss!
