When renting a car, you are free to drive anywhere you want, as long as you abide by the laws of local traffic which might be different from what you are used to. Always be a responsible driver and stick to the legal speed limit. Look out if you want to cross the border into another country because there could be limits and/or extra fees payable. If you want to take your car by ferry.
Extra charge for shipping the vehicle and/or collecting it from a hotel address. The delivery address of the hotel must be told after making the reservation. Delivery within 1 mile of Kingston's main office is guaranteed.
Most roads are narrow, and many roads without signs are in poor condition. International drivers should be very cautious on the roads and should also look out for pedestrians walking on the road or driving incoming cars in the middle of the lane.
Heavy rains can take place at any time of the year and often leave difficult roads to travel. Drivers will inquire from the media about weather conditions. The roads near the ocean during the crab season are lined with land crabs that cross the streets to get to the ocean.

Had a flawless experience with a very new Toyota Yaris that gave me no problems. When booking on-line I believed the price I was quoted was complete but learned when I picked up the car that there was an additional 16% tax. An unwelcome surprise which should have been clear when I booked. I’ll be aware next time I rent but will continue to look for the best deal. Friendly staff but rather long paperwork trail required.
