The Caribbean island of Jamaica is the home of sun-kissed beaches, friendly locals and amazing views. Christopher Columbus discovered Jamaica in 1494 on his second journey to the 'New World'. Car hire in Jamaica allows you to see the majority of this fair island for yourself, discovering lakes and mountain ranges as you head between the major cities. Hire a car in Jamaica for the wide range of cultural and historical delights including the UNESCO listed heritage park, safari adventures and enjoy island life no matter how long your stay.
As well as all those hours to be spent enjoying the water sports and relaxation on the beach, hiring a car in Jamaica offers travellers a lot of options as to how to spend their holiday. Seville Heritage Park is one such attraction; thought to be one of the island's very first settlements, it's a very important part of Jamaican history. Jamaica's Blue Mountains offer unparalleled views of almost the entire island as well as neighbouring Cuba on a clear enough day. Here, Blue Mountain Coffee is famously grown, while the capital city Kingston is also a short trip away; offering tourist attractions and friendly locals.
Anyone wishing to drive around Jamaica can do so using a UK driving licence for the first six months of an extended stay. Full concentration is required at all times while driving due to the sometimes unpredictable weather, so it's worth finding out what it will be like in advance. Another quirk of the country's being a part of the British Commonwealth, one of their oldest traditions is to drive on the left-hand side. Keep this in mind as you travel the many miles of road stretching between each coast of the island.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
