Top tips for hiring a car in the Cayman Islands

  • Renting a car in the Cayman Islands is by far the most convenient and comfortable way to get around. There is a bus system in the area, but each bus is independently operated, and they’re mostly only used by locals going to or coming home from work, each with many stops and schedules that can be confusing to foreigners.
  • Although the Cayman Islands have several natural attractions and off-the-beaten-track areas you can explore, the road conditions are generally very good no matter where you go. Because of this, you won’t need to worry about renting a four-wheel drive vehicle, even when you plan on going outside of the city to the Crystal Caves or to other heavily forested areas on Grand Cayman.
  • For those traveling to the Cayman Islands with children, you’ll need to be aware of the regulations regarding child safety in vehicles. In the Cayman Islands, all children under the age of two must be secured in a car seat that’s fastened with a seatbelt. Rear-facing seats cannot be used in seats supplied with an airbag. These safety seats must be fitted to your vehicle at all times, so you’ll have to either bring them with you or add a child seat onto your rental car reservation through the car provider.
  • When you rent a car in the Cayman Islands, you’ll also have to acquire a local driving permit, which costs around 16 KYD (19 USD). All rental car companies on the islands are required by law to issue the permit and collect the fee, but to be safe, you should make sure to double check that the permit has been issued. If your permit wasn’t issued at the time of rental, you can pick one up at the George Town police station.
  • Book your rental car in Cayman Islands at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Cayman Islands are around 48% cheaper than other car types, on average
