Top tips for renting a car in Goa

  • There are not many vehicle rental locations that are available throughout Goa, so you will want to do some research in advance of your travel to ensure you can secure a car when you need it. The greatest number of rental locations is available in Panaji. However, there are also rental car companies present in Vasco da Gama and Margao.
  • Throughout all of India, it’s mandatory for all passengers in a motor vehicle to wear seatbelts. This is a legal requirement for all individuals, regardless of their ages or locations in the car. Failure to wear a safety belt appropriately may result in you being charged a significant fine.
  • While it used to be that there was a rush hour around 6:00 p.m. in Goa, the rush hour time in the state has slowly expanded. While you are planning your journey, you may want to consider allotting more travel time for your activity if it starts or ends around this hour. Alternatively, you will want to consider adjusting your schedule—perhaps by booking a later dinner reservation.
  • In Goa, as well as throughout the rest of India, there are a number of zones that are marked as “no entry.” These spaces are designed to help regulate the flow of traffic in the region where they are found. It’s important that you take note of these designations in order to avoid running into any oncoming traffic or posing a threat to others who are using the roads, such as tuk-tuks, cyclists, and scooters.
  • Book your rental car in Goa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Goa are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Should I rent a car in Goa?

    The state of Goa does provide travelers with a fairly extensive system of buses; however, the buses only run for half of the day. If you are looking to really explore the state, then you’ll want to rent a car for the journey. A rental vehicle will give you the autonomy you’ll need and provide you with flexibility in your travel plans. It helps you to feel secure that you’re able to return to wherever you’re staying for the night. What’s more, a rental car will also grant you access to some of the more distant destinations that may not be city adjacent, including some of the spice plantations, for example.

  • What is driving like in Goa?

    The roadways in Goa are shared with a range of other travelers, including buses, bicycles, tuk-tuks, scooters, pedestrians, animals, and more. While driving in the state, you will want to be sure that you are focused on the road ahead of you to ensure you don’t encounter any of these unexpectedly. If you plan to drive along the beach roads, then you’ll want to be sure that you’ve secured a smaller vehicle. Often, the beach roads tend to be narrow. What’s more, you may want to learn at least a few phrases in the local language in the event that you are pulled over for any traffic infractions—this will be favorably received by local law enforcement officials.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Goa?

    For many larger rental car companies, the minimum age for renting a vehicle is 25, while some may permit renters to be as young as 21 years old. Some local companies may allow drivers to be as young as 18 years old. Prospective renters who are under the age of 25 can generally expect to be charged a young driver fee that would be applied to their rental costs. Additionally, you might also find that young drivers are restricted to renting certain vehicle classes, such as compact cars, or barred from renting luxury or other more expensive vehicles.
