Top tips for renting a car in the British Virgin Islands

  • When enjoying a holiday in the British Virgin Islands, car rental is the ideal way to get around as public transportation is highly limited when it comes to seeing further-flung sites and enjoying coastal adventures. Left-hand sided driving may be odd initially, but once you get the hang of it, your rental car will be a valuable ally. Roads can be either well-maintained or challenging, depending on where your itinerary takes you, but English signage and a good GPS will start your journey off the right way.
  • When considering what the best vehicle for your British Virgin Islands car rental would be, you may be thinking about hiring an SUV to tackle the steep mountains. While there are indeed steep hills in the capital city of Tortola, which would benefit from a high-powered vehicle, you should align your vehicle booking according to your holiday itinerary. If you are planning on staying in local towns, parking safely and navigating smaller roads can often be done best with a compact car or sedan.
  • If you are traveling to the British Virgin Islands with a child, you will be obligated to include a car seat with your rental. You are welcome to bring your own seat, but you also can hire one from more reputable car hire companies. Babies under 20 pounds will need to face backward in infant seats; larger children under 40 pounds can face forward in infant seats. Children under 1.5 meters tall will need to be strapped into booster seats. No child under the age of 13 years will be allowed to sit in the front seat.
  • If you want to have your British Virgin Islands car rental with you while you hop between the islands, there are car rental agencies that will allow this form of border crossing. It is usually only applicable with a reputable global name. When you have secured the correct documentation and insurance, you can book ferry passage with the ferry company directly to transport your car between islands.
