Top tips for hiring a car in the Northern Mariana Islands

  • Since there are limited public transportation options in the Northern Mariana Islands, a car rental is the best and easiest option to explore most of the islands on the western Pacific Ocean. You can drive at your own pace to various destinations. Taxis are plentiful on the Northern Mariana Islands, though more expensive than renting when you look at the cumulative costs. With a rental car, you can drive to the island of Saipan and visit attractions like the Grotto, a natural limestone cavern with crystal-clear waters for diving and snorkeling or take a scenic coastal drive to the famous Managaha Island, known for its pristine beaches and vibrant marine life.
  • Road conditions in the Northern Mariana Islands vary depending on the island. The most populated islands on the archipelago, Saipan, Rota, and Tinian, have well-maintained roads. Most urban roads are paved, and a few are dual-lane. You’ll come across a few roads made from coral, which can be slippery and difficult to drive on when it rains. Highway 30 is the primary road in Saipan, stretching over 12 miles along the West Coast of the island. It’s paved and well-maintained, with some dual highway sections.
  • If you’re flying into the Northern Mariana Islands, you’ll most likely land at Saipan International Airport (SPN). Different car rental providers are available at the airport, including Alamo, National, Avis, Budget, Premier Alliance Corporation, Hertz, Microl (Toyota) Corporation, and Islander Rent a Car. You’ll find a selection of vehicles, including SUVs, minivans, and luxury vehicles.
  • Since most roads in the Northern Mariana Islands are well-maintained, the type of vehicle you choose depends on your needs. The roads in most parts of the island are narrow, so you can rent a small car that is easier to park and maneuver. If you plan to traverse more rugged terrains on the islands, like the Volcanic Hills, consider a vehicle with a four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
  • Book your car hire in Northern Mariana Islands at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Northern Mariana Islands are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in the Northern Mariana Islands

    Take a look at our extensive car hire location map to find the best car hire deals near you.

  • What is it like driving in the Northern Mariana Islands?

    Driving laws in the Northern Mariana Islands are similar to those in the United States. You’ll be driving on the right-hand side of the road. In Saipan, there is a high number of young drivers who drive quickly and erratically, so always remain aware of your surroundings when driving. Seatbelts are mandatory, and the use of mobile phones when driving is strictly prohibited. Use hands-free if possible. Saipan experiences regular typhoons, mostly from August to mid-December, which can cause serious devastation when they hit. However, the island has a good monitoring system, so you’ll be updated if there’s an incoming storm. Stay up to date with local weather updates.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in the Northern Mariana Islands?

    The minimum driving age in the Northern Mariana Islands is 18 years. However, most car rental providers have their minimum rental at 21. Some agencies require renters to be at least 25 years old. You can use your US driver’s license in the islands, while foreign drivers can use licenses from their countries of origin for a month.

  • How are gas prices in the Northern Mariana Islands?

    The average price of gasoline in the Northern Mariana Islands is around $1.40 per liter or $5.60 per gallon. Consider the fuel efficiency of the vehicle you plan to rent. Small and less populated islands have few gas stations, so fill up whenever possible or carry extra gasoline. Some filling stations, especially those close to tourist attractions, don’t display the fuel price and end up charging more than the national rate. Familiarize yourself with the fuel prices before using these services.

  • What are the speed limits in the Northern Mariana Islands?

    The maximum speed limits in the Northern Mariana Islands are 25 mph in built-up areas like residential and business zones and 45mph in rural areas. Speed limits are strictly enforced, so always watch out for the posted speed limits on different roads. Speeding can result in severe penalties.
