Rental cars allow you to control your daily activities and to see parts of Grenada you didn't even know existed. But drivers should always be aware of road rules and unusual driving conditions before setting out on an island road trip.

Renting a Car

Some rental car agencies will rent to travelers who are 21 years old, but most require drivers to be at least 25. Most rentals come with unlimited mileage, and some companies provide vehicle drop-off and pick-up services. Rates will include a 5 percent government tax and $12(USD) to $15(USD) per day for collision damage insurance. You may also need to return the car with a full tank of gas.

Maps

Travelers must secure a Grenada driving permit before taking the wheel. Permits may be obtained by providing a valid driver's license at the police station in Carenage and paying a fee of $30(EC), or $11(USD). Many rental agencies can also provide drivers with the local permit.

Requirements and restrictions can vary. If you are concerned about minimum and maximum age restrictions, insurance requirements and the like, consider contacting each firm directly, before making a final decision.
