Hiring a car in Saint Lucia

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

Does Saint Lucia have exclusive traffic laws?

Saint Lucia is a beautiful destination and a great place to explore with your car hire. While a few unique driving laws apply, many road rules in Saint Lucia are similar to those in the UK. Drivers in Saint Lucia also drive on the left, like British drivers, which means that in Saint Lucia, rental cars are designed with left-hand driving in mind, which may be unfamiliar to drivers from the EU. Littering laws are also strictly enforced in Saint Lucia, and drivers are held responsible if their passengers litter while on the road. Therefore, it is important to make sure you pick up your rubbish when you make a stop, or that you keep rubbish in the car until you find a bin. Generally, if you receive an on-the-spot fine for littering or any other traffic violation, you will be given 30 days to pay it.

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

If you plan to rent a car in Saint Lucia, you will need to have a valid driver’s licence and a visitor’s driving permit. A visitor’s driving permit usually costs around £15 and should be obtained before you book any car rentals or before you go to collect your vehicle. Temporary visitor's driving permits stay valid for three months, after which you need to renew them. You should also bring a valid form of ID, such as a passport, when you pick up your car hire. It is also advisable to keep these documents in the car with you while you are driving around. Most car rental companies in Saint Lucia operate a minimum age policy of 25 and a maximum age policy of 60. However, some car rental agencies on the island offer car hire to younger drivers for an additional fee.

What areas of Saint Lucia have the most traffic?

Generally, the rural and coastal roads on Saint Lucia are quiet. Drivers on these roads will not encounter a lot of congestion. However, the roads in Castries can be crowded, and there may be heavy congestion during rush hours in the town centre. Main roads, such as the Castries-Gros Islet Highway, which connects George F. L. Charles Airport, with the popular tourist destination of Gros Islet, may also become busy at times. This road tends to be especially busy during the summer months. Saint Lucia is often busy in February when Saint Lucia’s citizens celebrate their annual Independence Day festival. This celebration features events across the island, so there might be more traffic on the roads than usual. Some streets may also be closed for festivities and parades. Saint Lucia also hosts the Saint Lucia Carnival, which usually takes place in June or July. If you plan to use car rentals to get around Saint Lucia, be aware that the roads might be extra busy during these events.

What are the best scenic roads in Saint Lucia?

Saint Lucia has some beautiful local scenery easily accessible by road. Coastal roads run down the west of the island, giving stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and offering access to many popular tourist beaches. There are also lots of great places to stop for a hike around the island. For example, the route from Soufriere to La Pointe passes the famous Petit Pitons rock formation and the Gros Pitons hiking trail. If you want to explore the island’s east coast with your car hire, you can follow the scenic Micoud Highway. This route passes popular beauty spots like Vierge Point and the Mamiku Botanical Gardens. You can also follow the Micoud Highway inland and join the west coastal trail via Morne d’Or, making a full circuit of the island’s south tip. The nearby town of Micoud is a great place to stop for something to eat or to fill up with fuel.

What is the cheapest car hire agency in Saint Lucia?

Drive A Matic tends to have the cheapest cars for hire in Saint Lucia. Users can often find prices for as low as £35/day when booking through Drive A Matic. You are more likely to find car rental deals through Drive A Matic for less than the average national price of £41/day. These prices may be different depending on the type of car you hire and the city you hire it in.

What car hire company in Saint Lucia has the most locations?

You are likely to find one of their 9 country-wide locations either at your destination airport or somewhere in the city centre. If you haven’t chosen a city to travel to within Saint Lucia, consider Castries, which is the most popular destination in the country. Here you will find that Drive A Matic has 3 locations throughout the area.

What side of the road do people in Saint Lucia drive on?

In Saint Lucia, drivers are required to drive on the left at all times. Not doing so can result in traffic violation tickets.

What is the drink driving limit in Saint Lucia?

The BAC limit is 3.81 mg/l in Saint Lucia - this applies to both visitors and residents. Your BAC level is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol in your bloodstream. This information is used to determine how inebriated an individual is. Driving a vehicle with a BAC higher than 3.81 mg/l is against the law in Saint Lucia and you will be deemed as ‘driving under the influence’. Saint Lucia has strict laws against individuals who drink-drive when they are younger than the legal drinking age of 16.
