Top tips for renting a car in Jersey

  • Renting a car in Jersey is an ideal way to explore the island nation. You can drive at your own pace to various destinations inaccessible by public transport and stop at some popular attractions in the country. The cumulative costs of hiring to various destinations can be much higher, which makes renting more affordable. You can start by exploring the nation’s capital, St. Helier, which has a picturesque harbor, museums, and art galleries, or drive along the rugged and scenic north coast, which offers breathtaking views of cliffs, bays, and sandy beaches.
  • If you’re visiting Jersey, you’ll most likely fly into Jersey International Airport in Saint Peter (JER). Different car rental providers, including Avis, Hertz, and Budget, have a desk at the airport. You’ll also find cars in off-airport locations like St Helier. Car rentals in Jersey have a selection of vehicles, so you can choose one according to your needs. It’s possible to drive a UK car in Jersey if you are from the United Kingdom.
  • The roads in Jersey are generally well-maintained. However, there are a few places where the roads can get a bit tough, especially in the countryside. Roads are regularly resurfaced and repaired. The government provides regular updates on ongoing roadworks in various parts of the island. You can find information on road closures and delays on the government website with a map showing the exact location. The island boasts Green Lanes, roads designated as a priority for cyclists, pedestrians, and horse-riders.
  • Since Jersey is a popular tourist destination, you may encounter heavy traffic on most roads during summer. You’ll also experience rush hour traffic on major roads leading into and out of the capital, St. Helier. Morning rush hour starts from 7 am to 10 am, while evening rush hour starts from 4 pm to 7 pm. The weather in Jersey can be unpredictable, and snow or heavy rain can make the road dangerous.

    The top speed limit in Jersey is 40 mph, but lower speed limits apply in various places across the island.
