Car Rentals in Anguilla

The sixteen miles long by three miles wide island of Anguilla makes transportation a little bit simpler than in other Caribbean islands.

Since the island is so small, there is no bus or rail transport, so car rentals are the recommended form of transportation for visitors.

Taxis are also available for tourists who do not wish to rent cars. Taxi fares are generally published in tour guides.

The rates are unmetered, and taxi fares must be paid in cash.

Taxis also offer tours of the entire island, usually a few hours in length. It’s a good idea to decide on the final fare before getting in the taxi, just to avoid any confusion on the price.

Taxis are generally on time and a reliable source of transportation.

To get from Anguilla to other nearby islands, ferries operate all day, every day, every half hour. Ferries travel back and forth from Anguilla to St. Martin.

Ferries are inexpensive and reliable.

Those choosing to rent a car will likely find that Anguilla’s roads are well maintained and easy to navigate. The quality of roads is higher than that of other islands in the Caribbean.

Cars drive on the left side of the road, like they do in the United Kingdom. Many of the cars are manual, and the gearbox will be on the driver’s left hand side.

Car rental agencies all have their own individual conditions and restrictions. It’s important to know all of the fine print before arriving in Anguilla.

A valid driver’s license from the visitor’s home country is generally required. Often, age restrictions apply.

For many agencies, drivers under the age of 25 will incur an additional fee.
