Hiring a car in Grenada

Before you book your car hire, here are a few tips and rules you should know about driving in Grenada

Does Grenada have any unique traffic laws?

If you plan on using rental cars when you stay in Grenada, then there are a few things that you will want to know. In Grenada, traffic drives on the left and overtakes on the right, so we advise you to check your mirrors before turning as it's common for people to overtake on winding roads and at junctions. All passengers are required to wear seat belts in rental cars, regardless of age, and the blood alcohol limit in Grenada is the same as in the U.K at 0.08%. Using a mobile phone while driving is illegal unless you are using a hands-free kit, and this does not permit headsets as they can block out important noise that may come from outside the car.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Grenada?

To use rental cars in Grenada, you will need to present car hire companies with your original driving licence and a local driving permit. To get the local driving permit, you will need to go to a police station which is not difficult. Then you'll be able to drive and explore the country using your preferred car hire company. You will need to have held your original driving license for at least a year before you can rent a car, and most car hire companies will apply a daily surcharge if you are under 25 years old or older than 65.

Which areas of Grenada have the most traffic?

In general, there is very little traffic in Grenada, and the driving style is very laid back. The area with the most traffic is the capital, Saint George's, mainly because it has the most inhabitants and cars. There are very few traffic lights in the country, and most of them are in Saint George’s and other large towns. There is no marked disabled parking, but parking is usually very easy in Grenada. Just make sure you don't park over exits or at junctions. There is also paid parking available in the capital, where competition for parking spaces can be a little more intense. In general, you probably won't need to drive too much if you are travelling within St George’s, as it is a pleasant and safe city to walk around. Some taxis and minibuses can also take you where you need to go. Outside the city, renting a car is a fantastic way to see what this beautiful island has to offer, and we recommend it as the main way to travel in Grenada.

What are the best scenic roads in Grenada?

In total, it will only take about five hours to drive around the entire island of Grenada, and so there are a few stand-out places that we recommend you visit. The Grand Anse Beach is one of the most popular places for tourists, and you'll often find many tourists there who are visiting the island on cruise ships. It is the most famous beach on the island for a reason, with a beautiful crescent moon shape and golden sands. Nearby, you'll find the Grande Anse Craft and Spice Market, where you can spend a few hours browsing local produce. Fort Frederick is also well worth a visit. The French built the fort with its cannons facing inland to prevent a sneak overland from the British. To get there, you will need to drive up the winding, twisting roads to the top of Richmond Hill.
