Top tips for renting a car in the Turks and Caicos Islands
One of the biggest advantages of renting a car in Turks and Caicos is that besides taxis, rental cars are generally the only way to get around these islands. That is due to the fact that there are no public transportation options that are easily accessible for visitors to this area to utilize during their trip. If you are going to be here for a few days, having a rental car is going to be a far cheaper option than taking taxis everywhere.
Parents traveling with children should know that there is no national child car seat rule here, yet some of the larger cities and settlements do have a requirement for car seats. When renting a car, it is best to check with your rental company to make sure they can rent car seats and be specific about the type of car seat or booster seat you need for your travels.
Although there are several paved roads in Turks and Caicos, you may experience less-than-ideal driving conditions as you get further away from the larger population areas - including unpaved roads and roads that easily flood during rainy conditions. That is why renting a vehicle like a Jeep or an SUV that has all-wheel drive is always going to be a plus in this country.
