KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Belize City

  • With car rentals in Belize City, it’s easy and convenient to move throughout the city and also visit neighboring towns in the region. Public transportation in the area is minimal, making Belize City car rentals one of the best ways to get from point A to point B. When you have access to your own car rental, you can also easily go to locations that may be further from the city center, including Belizean Beach, which is around a 12min drive from downtown. There is also the Ambergris Museum and it can be reached by car in just under 20min.
  • Belize City car rentals offer the ultimate flexibility of exploring the city and beyond. The car rentals in Belize City mostly allow renters to opt for one-way rentals. This can be particularly advantageous if you plan a road trip or travel to a new destination away from the city. You can therefore use this rental option to explore different parts of the country without retracing your steps to return the rental car. Some car rental companies in Belize may charge an additional fee for one-way rentals, while others may not allow it at all. Plan your route in advance and communicate your one-way rental plans early to ensure a smooth rental experience.
  • If you will be flying into Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE), you can always choose to pick up car rentals in Belize City directly from here. Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport has a car rental center that can be conveniently found inside of the main Arrivals terminal. There are more than 10 different rental companies to choose from in this center, including Avis, Hertz, and Thrifty.
  • There are several road trips that you can take from Belize City using car rentals in Belize City. One beach destination, Hopkins is a small Garifuna village in the Stann Creek district. The drive from Belize City to Hopkins takes you through the Hummingbird Highway and past the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, home to Belize's largest population of jaguars. Orange Walk is a great destination if you're interested in wildlife and nature. The town is located near the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.
  • To operate car rentals in Belize City as safely as possible, you’ll want to make sure that you learn some local driving laws and tips. For example, unless stated otherwise, drivers are allowed to make right-hand turns at red lights when safe and after coming to a complete stop. Belize does not require children to be in car seats while in a moving vehicle, but they are still strongly recommended. The country has a strict 0.08% blood alcohol maximum, so always use caution when drinking alcohol.
  • The primary payment method for most car rental companies is credit cards. With a credit card, you avoid adding Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance to your rental package, which can really add up daily. If you don't have one, there are limitations on the types of vehicles you can rent. These restrictions vary across companies, but it's safe to assume that luxury and specialty vehicles may be off-limits. Fortunately, some cheap car rentals in Belize City could be willing to accommodate cash-only or debit-card customers. But remember that you may be required to pay a deposit, which will be refunded upon returning the vehicle.
  • Those that want to avoid getting caught in traffic as much as possible will want to stay off the road during rush hour, which falls between 7:30 and 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. Some of the roads in the city that are known for being particularly congested include the Northern Highway and the Western Highway. If you happen to be driving in the rain, make sure to be extra cautious, as the roads tend to be more difficult to drive on in these weather conditions.

Belize City car rental experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Belize City 
Verified travelerDec. 2023
There are a lot of speed bumps on the main highway - keep your eyes out for them or you will fly over them. Driving was easy and the roads were good. Plenty of places to get food and stores on the side of the road. When returning your car, there is a shell gas station 6 minutes detour from the airport
Verified travelerDec. 2023
A sedan/small car is fine for the majority of driving - nice paved roads with speed bumps in the towns. However, we went to Mountain Pine Forest Reserve in an SUV and it was beneficial for some of the side roads, but even with an SUV we got stuck in the mud on one of the more remote roads - a 4x4 was needed. If you have an SUV just stick to the paved roads and more popular dirt roads if you go the Mountain Pine Reserve.

2.0 Poor

Dec. 2023

KAYAK
We had our rental booked the Alamo. On arrival, we were told that due to an issue they didn’t have a car for us (we had requested a mid size SUV - KIA sportage or similar and while we were waiting we saw another customer from Alamo get one). They said that since they didn’t have one they are working with their partners to honor our rate and give us a similar car. I expected a similarly well renowned company - enterprise, budget, hertz. Instead they took us over to one of the local car rentals and got us a SUV with 103K miles on it, poor car alignment, and the check engine light on “which was the case for all the cars”. Ultimately the car served it’s purpose but that was a disappointing experience and the car we got was definitely not worth the price we paid.

Cons:

The agency we originally made a reservation through did not have a car available when we arrived. They were kind in asking other agencies if they could assist us, but the vehicle we managed to secure was in very very poor shape mechanically. The trip across the country for the nearly two weeks was very difficult with such an unreliable and dangerously maintained vehicle. It was an adventure.
