Luckily, toll roads do not exist on the freeways and larger roads in Suriname. This is a great saving on your travel itinerary, and you will not receive a toll bill when you return the vehicle either. You will require a tourist card if you cross certain borders within the country, so ensure you check with your car rental agency about what paperwork you need for longer road trips. Roads can be challenging at times, so always look out for obstacles and consider hiring a GPS as there may not always be sufficient signage.

Some companies may have an upper age limit of 75 for car rental, too.
