Top tips for renting a car in Punta Cana

  • Explore the very eastern tip of the Dominican Republic on your own four wheels and rent a car for your time in Punta Cana. With beautiful beaches and the inland stretching out seemingly infinitely, a car is definitely a must to get from A to B in this region. Make the most of your holiday and reach any beach with its wonderfully clear blue water or a stunning golf course conveniently and in comfort.
  • Punta Cana International Airport is plopped amidst the region’s heart and is only a few minutes from many popular destinations. Various car hire agencies are situated at the airport, including companies like Thrifty, Avis, and Hertz. This remote corner of the world will most likely require visitors to have their own wheels if they do not want to be dependent on taxis. By car, it will take a maximum of half an hour to get to the northern side of the region, where most hotels are located.
  • Driving in Punta Cana can be a bit of a challenge for first-time visitors, as many street regulations appear to be considered suggestions rather than rules. Motorcycles are also a common sight and they can whizz around a corner and be difficult to see coming. Driving defensively is the number one rule when coming to Punta Cana, but when doing so, there is nothing that can stop you from exploring all the beauty this region has to offer.
  • Compared to major cities, rush hour in Punta Cana is comparably tame, but from 8 to 10 am and 6 to 9 pm, roads can face increased traffic as well. During the summer, traffic also increases as tourists flock into the region to enjoy the sun, white beaches, and crystal clear water. Especially around the coastline, traffic jams can occur in the peak season.
  • Book your rental car in Punta Cana at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Punta Cana?

Travelers who want to make the most out of the sun and salty breeze should consider renting a convertible for the ultimate feeling of summer. It is advised to opt for a compact car, as navigating and turning around on the streets of Punta Cana with a big car can be a hassle because of the unreliable driving behavior locals are known for.

What's the speed limit in Punta Cana?

Always look out for posted speed limit signs when driving in Punta Cana. General regulations permit 40 km/h (25 mph) in residential areas, 80 km/h (50 mph) on open secondary roads, and 120 km/h (75 mph) on highways. Even if locals go faster than allowed, don’t be tempted to do the same.

How are gas prices in Punta Cana?

Petrol will cost about 56 Dominican Pesos per liter in Punta Cana (roughly $1.11, which means $4.40 per gallon). Be vigilant when refilling the tank in Punta Cana, as attendants sometimes choose the more expensive petrol and charge accordingly. Get out of the car and clearly indicate which kind of petrol you want (and also which one is best for the car).

Where are the best places to park in Punta Cana?

Most bigger hotels in Punta Cana come with a parking space included, so inquire beforehand if that is also the case with your accommodation. There are many parking lots dotting the coastline, like the Marina Cap Cana lot (which is for visitors only), the Playa Publica Los Corales, or general beach parking alongside most beaches.
