Top tips for renting a car in Réunion

  • When visiting Réunion, consider renting a car from one of the rental agencies available in the country. Renting a car in Réunion has various benefits, including the flexibility to travel across the country at your own pace. Réunion has a limited public transport system, especially when you plan on traveling between cities. Using a rental car will allow for intercity travel so you can explore various areas of the country. Since Réunion has well-developed roads, including highways, you can effortlessly access different cities with a rental car. With a rental car, you can easily access popular attractions, including Piton de la Fournaise, the Cirque de Mafate, and Salazie, all conveniently reachable by car.
  • Réunion has mountainous terrain with winding roads, making it challenging to drive through various streets when visiting the country. Be sure to rent a car with good handling, stability, responsive steering, and adequate power to climb steep and winding roads. You can opt for a performance sedan or compact SUV to easily navigate Réunion roads. The country also experiences diverse weather conditions, including heavy rainfall in certain areas, causing slippery roads and reduced visibility. Consider renting a four-wheel drive or a sedan with safety features for navigating such roads.
  • When driving around Réunion with a child, ensure you have an age-appropriate child seat or booster suitable for an older child. Infants younger than two years old must be secured in rear-facing infant seats, while a child between two and four years of age, should be in forward-facing child seats, and those between ages four and 10 years or who are at least 4 ft 5 in tall in booster seats. Before leaving the pickup location with your rental car, be sure to install the child seat properly and confirm that it is compatible with the vehicle's seat belts.
  • When renting a car in Réunion, note that you can't cross the border to neighboring countries. However, you can visit other parts of the island with your rental car. This means that when renting a car, you will not be charged any additional cost for cross-border driving, as you can only drive on the island.
