St Kitts Nevis Car Rentals: A Convenient Way To Explore the Islands

St Kitts Nevis car rentals are definitely the way to go if you are the kind of person who prefers to explore the country at your convenience.

Getting around St. Kitts and Nevis is relatively easy and there are a number of ways to do so including renting a car, SUV or van, by scooter or moped or by mountain bike. Of course you can also choose to move around using taxis or the bus system.

Car rental agencies providing prompt, reliable and friendly service to customers are available on both islands. Most St Kitts Nevis car rentals offer a range of vehicles to choose from including cars, buses, SUV's and 4X4 vehicles. Some of the agencies (Avis Car Rentals and Thrifty Car Rentals) have agencies on both islands and also offer a rental exchange between St Kitts and Nevis when you rent a for a minimum of three days. This is so convenient... rent a car in one island, either St Kitts or Nevis, take the ferry or fly over to visit the other, and when you get there, a rental exchange vehicle is waiting for you to continue your island adventures. Additionally, free pick up and delivery, complimentary road map and unlimited mileage are available from most St Kitts and Nevis car rentals.

I know you are probably wondering about the availability of St Kitts Nevis car rentals. Well,... under normal circumstances, you should not experience any difficulties in renting a vehicle. However if you plan on being in St Kitts for Carnival (December 26 - January 2), the St Kitts Music Festival (usually held the last weekend in June), or in Nevis for Culturama (Emancipation Day Weekend), make certain that you reserve your rental vehicle early since the demand for car rentals is usually high around those times. It must be that just about everyone wants to make sure they 'have trans' as we say locally. So what's the bottom line here? Whenever there is a big event in St Kitts or Nevis, avoid the last minute rush for vehicles and book your St Kitts Nevis car rentals early. I know there are persons who reserve their rental vehicles for Carnival very early in the New Year. Use the link above to reserve your cars in advance.

As you explore the islands, do remember to take your camera and camcorder along so you can capture shots of the beautiful scenery. Some of the must see sightseeing tours include:

  • St Kitts island tour
  • Nevis island tour
  • Nevis Plantation Inn tour
  • Tour of Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, A UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Scenic drive over to the Southeast Peninsula in St Kitts
  • Tour of Romney Manor, home of Caribelle Batik, Old Road, St Kitts
  • Botanical Garden of Nevis

As you set out to explore the islands, please remember that driving in St Kitts and Nevis is on the left side of the road and requires a visitor's drivers license. In order to obtain a drivers license in St. Kitts and Nevis you will need to present a valid drivers license from your home country. The cost of the license is EC$62.50 (Official Exchange Rate is US$1=EC$2.70) and it is available from police and fire stations and car rental agencies throughout St Kitts and Nevis. Traffic rules and speed limits should be observed to avoid traffic fines. The speed limit varies depending on the area you are driving in. The speed limit is 40 mph in non built up areas, 30 mph in town perimeters/where marked and 20 mph in residential areas, school zones and business districts.
