Top tips for hiring a car in the Dominican Republic

  • If you are bringing children on your vacation and plan to rent a car in the Dominican Republic, you need to be aware that there are no child car seat laws, but it is compulsory for all passengers to wear a seatbelt when they are traveling in a car.
  • You will find that there are various types of roads in the Dominican Republic that are suited to different vehicle types. Most of the highways are in brilliant condition and have two lanes, while the DR-1 highway has four lanes and connects the cities of Santiago and Santo Domingo. There are also single-lane roads and dirt tracks, found in rural areas, which can require a four-wheel drive to navigate.
  • If you plan to cross the Dominican border with your rental car, you will need to be aware of the territorial restrictions, which will vary depending on the country that you want to visit. For example, you will not be able to take your rental car across to Haiti. To find out which neighboring countries you can visit, you will need to check the conditions with your car hire agency.
  • Renting a car in the Dominican Republic offers you the flexibility to explore the country in your own time and at your own pace. Remote sites like the waterfalls at Damajagua in the northern region of the country will require access by car.
  • Book your car hire in Dominican Republic at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
