Car Rentals on Little Cayman

Options are limited when it comes to renting a car on Little Cayman

When talking about Little Cayman, the first thing most previous visitors will note is that there isn't much to do there except for dive.  The island is just eight miles long and one mile across, and most visitors find getting around on foot or using a bicycle provided by their accommodations to work just fine for them.  If you prefer or have to drive to get your sightseeing fix, there is one rental agency on the island of just 200 residents that can help you out.

Renting a Car

Renting a car is fairly easy on the island.  The rules are that you have to be over the age of 25 and have a local driver's permit.  You can purchase it for $7.50(USD) when you pick up your rental, or if you're staying on Grand Cayman for a time before you arrive on Little Cayman you'll be able to do so from the George Town Police Station on Elgin Avenue or the Vehicle Licensing Department on Crewe Road.

There are only a few vehicles on the lot, so make sure to call and reserve your vehicle well in advance of your trip, especially if you'll be visiting during the height of tourist season.  It is also recommended that you reserve a jeep since they are able to handle the sometimes rugged road conditions. 

Mclaughlin Rentals Ltd Car & Scooter Rentals - Little Cayman happens to be the only rental service for which we have information. You can give them a call at (345) 948-1000, or visit them on The Village Square right within Little Cayman.

Driving on Little Cayman

Little Cayman has just one main road that circles the island around the coast.  The speed limit is posted at 25 miles per hour, and it is recommended that you stick to it because iguanas, which can be hard to spot at times, have the right of way.  It is rare that you'll see another car driving at the same time as you, so those who are not used to driving on the left side of the road (as is done here) will have plenty of space to practice.

Whether you need to rent a car or just prefer to have four wheels at your disposal, it is easy to rent a car for your stay on Little Cayman.
