Top tips for renting a car in Tahiti

  • You will be able to cross the border with a Tahiti car; however, you will be subjected to some restrictions. For instance, to cross the border, you will be required to purchase an additional insurance cover for protecting the vehicle outside the borders of Tahiti. You are also required to make prior contact with the car rental provider to have your cross-border travel approved by the car rental. This is also to ensure the availability of your chosen car.
  • The passengers on board a vehicle will have to wear their seatbelts, whether sitting in the front or in the back seats. If you are traveling with children below the age of 12, then you should ensure that safety booster seats are secured for their well-being and if you are yet to find one, then your car rental provider will be able to provide one for you at an extra fee. The child restraint devices to be used for the kids should match their size, height, and weight.
  • Tahiti has several locations for on-street parking. Some of this on-street parking can be found at Parking Mamao, Parking Chirac, and Parking Tiare. The majority of on-street parking is metered and is available downtown and the charges are about 600 Franc ($6) per 2 hours. You will therefore find plenty of parking garages downtown. For the guests having vacations at downtown hotels, the majority of hotels there offer guests free parking and free on-street parking is available from 9 pm to 9 am and on Sundays as well.
  • Driving in Tahiti is enjoyable, but you are always required to drive within the stipulated speed limits. Just as in all the other regions in French Polynesia, the speed limits in Tahiti are posted in km/h. If you are driving in a crowded area in Tahiti, then you are required to adhere to the speed limit of 40 km/h (25 mph) while if you are driving in open places, then you will have the freedom of driving up to a speed limit of 80 km/h (50 mph).

    Renting a car in Tahiti has a wide range of benefits. For instance, with a rental car, you will be able to access many tourist attractions in this region. Some of the tourist attractions in Tahiti include Papeete Market, the Museum of Tahiti, and The Islands and Water Gardens Vaipahi. These attractions will prove difficult to access on public transport and so having a rental car will be crucial. Moreover, with a rental car in Tahiti, you will be able to invite more friends or family members to this Tahiti adventure as there will be enough seats and adequate room for storage.

  • What is driving like in Tahiti?

    As in all of French Polynesia, you should stick to the right-side rule of driving in Tahiti. This rule is also similar to that of France’s driving side. When entering a roundabout, check all sides in order to avoid accidents. Most roads in Tahiti are always narrow hence drivers traversing the main road tend to have the right of way. Give way to pedestrians at pedestrian lanes or crosswalks. You should be aware that cars on the right side of the road have priority. If you are looking to overtake another vehicle then make sure the road ahead is clear and you should also give signals to your fellow drivers of your overtaking plans.

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

    You will be able to drive in Tahiti with a legal driving age of 18. The maximum driving age in this region is 70 as this is to ensure that drivers don’t lose sharpness and focus while driving. The majority of car rental providers in Tahiti will, however, rent vehicles to only drivers older than 25 with additional charges for young drivers between the age of 19 to 25. These young drivers will just be limited to renting vehicles from certain categories, such as compact vehicles, economy vehicles, and some mid-size SUVs. You will be required to have a valid driving license and a credit card for car rental payments in Tahiti.
