KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Port of Spain

  • Using Port of Spain car hire can provide numerous advantages over alternative transportation options. You can visit attractions and landmarks at your leisure, without worrying about the constraints of public transportation schedules. Some of the places worth visiting in or around Port of Spain that are more accessible if you have a hire car include Maracas Beach, Caroni Bird Sanctuary, Chaguaramas, and San Fernando Hill. Cheap car hire in Port of Spain also allows you to travel in a safe and comfortable environment, with plenty of space for your luggage and other belongings. This is especially important if you are travelling with a group or with small children.
  • If you're planning to get a Port of Spain car hire at Port of Spain Piarco Airport (POS), you will find hire car offices located in the airport terminal building, just a short walk from the Baggage Claim area. The major rental car companies that operate out of POS airport include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Hertz, and Sixt. There is no shuttle service needed to the hire car offices as they are located within the terminal building itself, so you can easily pick up your Port of Spain car hire after you arrive. It's recommended to make a reservation in advance to ensure that you get the car of your choice, as certain car models may have limited availability.
  • The main roads in Port of Spain are generally well-maintained, but secondary roads may be narrower and have slower speed limits. There are also numerous speed bumps on the roads, particularly in residential areas, which can slow traffic down considerably. The driving style in Port of Spain can be described as somewhat aggressive. Drivers may speed, disobey traffic signals, and tailgate. Still, overall, drivers are usually aware of and follow traffic rules.
  • Driving cheap car hire in Port of Spain can be an exciting, but challenging experience for visitors. One of the major difficulties faced by drivers is traffic congestion, which can be especially problematic during peak hours. Rush hour in the city typically occurs between 07:30 to 09:30 and 16:30 to 18:30 when commuters are travelling to and from work. The major roads that are most affected during these times include the Lady Young Road, the Churchill Roosevelt Highway, and the Priority Bus Route.

    The speed limit in Port of Spain is typically 50 km/h (32 mph) in urban areas and built-up zones, including residential areas. However, there are some areas where the speed limit drops to 40 km/h (25 mph) due to narrow roads or heavy pedestrian traffic. On major highways outside the city centre, the speed limit is typically 80 km/h (50 mph) but may drop to 60 km/h (37 mph) in areas with sharp curves or steep inclines.

  •  Where are the best places to park in Port of Spain?

    Street parking is available in some areas of the city, but can be limited and difficult to find. Time limits may also apply and parking attendants may charge a fee to park your Port of Spain car hire. The cost for street parking can vary, but typically ranges from 2-10 TTD per hour (0.2-1 GBP). There are also several privately owned parking lots in the city, which offer great parking for a cheap car hire in Port of Spain. Rates can vary from 10-25 TTD per hour (1-2.50 GBP) or 50-100 TTD per day (5-10 GBP).

Pros:

The customer service was great. The need for more workers was very evident.

Cons:

Give a better car for money. The car I chose, was not the car I pickup. That to me is not good, especially when you get a car of a lower value. I chose a midsize car and I got a Hydia car that I used neutral as park and replace it with a Nissan March.

Cons:

First, not canceling a customers' reservation of 4 months because their flight was delayed. Secondly, management should offer a viable alternative when a situation like this happens. Saying that there is nothing you can do, is totally unacceptable.
