Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Nicaragua?

Car hires in Nicaragua give you the freedom to explore the country at your own leisure, but you will have to meet several criteria in order to hire a car in Nicaragua. Drivers must usually be at least 21 years of age to arrange Nicaragua car hires, and for some agencies, an additional Young Driver Surcharge may apply to those under 25 years of age. The main driver and any additional drivers must all hold a valid driving licence, and driving licences printed with a non Roman alphabet (Arabic, Hangul, Cyrillic etc.) must be complemented by an international driving licence. In addition to this, the main driver will need to make sure they bring a credit card in their name from an internationally recognised company to get their Nicaragua car hire. Debit cards are not usually accepted.

What are the rules for driving in Nicaragua?

When you get your car hire in Nicaragua, there are some driving rules to take note of, which are somewhat different from those in the UK. The biggest difference is that you will drive hire cars in Nicaragua on the right side of the road, and consequently overtake from the left. Speed limits are a bit lower than those in the UK- in built up and populated areas, it is 45 km/h or 28 mph; in rural areas, 60 km/h or 38 mph, while the motorway speed limit is only 100 km/h or 62 mph. The drink driving blood alcohol limit is lower as well at 50 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. Before setting off in your hire car in Nicaragua, check with the local driving authority for recent law changes.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Nicaragua?

Car hires in Nicaragua are a great way to explore the country’s many lakes, volcanoes and beaches. Cheap car hire in Nicaragua is available, with several car hire locations in Nicaragua offering economy car hire as well as luxury car hire. You may want to select a smaller car for your journey, as many roads don’t have pavement and drivers consequently share the road with pedestrians along with cyclists, motorcycles, and animals and carriages, often carrying a heavy load. On top of that, small cars are usually conservative on fuel consumption, especially with an electric car hire. However, if you want to see Nicaragua’s more dramatic landscapes, a four wheel drive SUV or pick-up truck comes in handy to navigate underdeveloped countryside roads.
