Top tips for renting a car in Saint Kitts and Nevis

  • If you want to travel around both Saint Kitts and Nevis islands, check with your car rental company to see if they offer car exchange services on either island. Since you will not be able to take your rental car on the car ferry, your car rental company should provide you with another car on the neighboring island.
  • When you rent a car in Saint Kitts and Nevis, children under 12 years old or weighing less than 40 lbs. are required to wear a seat belt or to be restrained in a suitable child car seat. You should consider bringing your own car seat or booster seat with you, or you must rent one from the car rental company for around 13.51 XCD (5 USD) per day.
  • There are plenty of benefits to renting a car in Saint Kitts and Nevis. If you want to venture farther than the city center of Basseterre, you will not be able to use the local bus service, so a car is your best option for seeing the other sights, as taxis are expensive on the islands.
  • Discovering the winding roads of Saint Kitts and Nevis is best done by car. You will find driving around simple and enjoyable, as the islands’ roads are well maintained and there are no traffic lights on St. Kitts Island. If you are planning to head to the beach, some of the access roads are not paved, so you may want to rent a four-wheel drive.
