What are the rules for driving in Jamaica?

When you hire a car in Jamaica, remember to drive on the left-hand side of the road. The speed limit is 50 km/h (30 mph) in urban or residential areas and 80 km/h (50 mph) on highways, and the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.08. It is compulsory for the driver and front passenger to wear seat belts, and infants under three years old must travel in infant carriers. Children between three and 12 years old are not allowed to sit in the front seat. Always keep your licence and car hire paperwork in the vehicle. When you’re driving your hire car in Jamaica, you may notice that it is common for local drivers to use their horns to get the attention of other road users. Service stations can be found throughout the island but generally do not accept credit cards, so always carry cash with you. Some Jamaican roads are poorly maintained, lack signage and are poorly lit at night, so drive carefully at all times. It is recommended you check with the local transport authority in Jamaica for updated road rules.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Jamaica?

Jamaica has mountainous terrain, with busy streets in the major cities and narrow, winding rural roads. There are very few paved roads outside the main towns, and drivers may need to watch out for pedestrians and animals.

Always check the fine print on your car hire policy, as many car hire companies offer unlimited mileage, fair fuel policies, collision damage waivers and coverage for liability and theft.
