Car hire in Jamaica
Hiring a car in Jamacia
Jamaica is one of the Caribbean's most famous islands and has developed into a popular honeymoon and beach destination.
However, it is also developing a reputation for action-packed holidays, with lots of opportunities to enjoy some rafting, hiking and underwater adventures.
The local food is also a major draw, with dishes successfully merging creole with more traditional Caribbean flavours - it really is foodie heaven.
The main resort and Jamaica’s most famous city is Kingston and the capital is the base for most of the island’s major attractions.
However, some prefer to head to the breathtaking beaches of Montego Bay or spend some time discovering the nightlife of Negril.
What you need to know
Despite its relatively small size, there are a number of options for car hire in Jamaica, with the main airport in Kingston (KIN) providing a base to a number of suppliers.
However, there is also the Sangster International Airport (MBJ) and the Ian Fleming Airport (OCJ), which serve various key flight routes and therefore also allow holidaymakers to pick-up/drop-off a hire vehicle.
To save extra hassle and expense on arrival in Jamaica it makes sense to use our booking engine to find the best price and pre-book your car hire needs before heading off to the Caribbean.
Where to pick up your car
If you have booked a car at Kingston International Airport (KIN) than the car rental desks can be found in the arrivals ground transportation hall, just outside the customs area.
For those arriving at Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ), they will find plenty of car rental companies located in the ground transportation and arrivals hall.
The other key international airport in Jamaica is the Ian Fleming International Airport (OCJ), which was previously named the Boscobel Aerodrome, but was given a new title in honour of the author of the James Bond novels, which have helped to raise the country’s profile. Again, there are a number of car hire companies based at this transport hub.
