Renting a car in Martinique is very simple; a driver's license and a credit card are all you need. The rules of the road are the same as in Latin Europe.
To visit the picturesque island of Martinique, it's essential to rent a car. Public transport is infrequent and taxis are very expensive. Renting a car is the best way to maximize your stay in Martinique.
However, beware of traffic at rush hour; it can often be crowded on the outskirts of Fort-de-France.
With a quay that's 2.7 kilometers long, Fort-de-France Harbor is one of the most important ports in the Caribbean. It's used for three main shipping activities: transporting people, merchandising goods, and ship repair.
The harbor is situated in the heart of Fort-de-France and is located only 7 kilometers from The Martinique International Aime Cesaire Airport.
Historically, in 1902, the Fort de France Harbor reinforced its position in Martinique after the destruction of Saint Pierre due to the eruption of the Pelee Mountain Volcano. The General Transatlantic Company settled down and developed an exclusive transport service within the island along with a strong development of the inter-island connections, creating employment and reinforcing the geographical location of the harbor.
Rentîles offers you a wide choice of independent car rental companies at the harbor or airport in Martinique.
All rental companies listed on the Rentîles platform offer rentals with unlimited mileage. This is also the case for the majority of rental companies on the island, except for peer-to-peer rentals.
Prices in Martinique can vary significantly depending on the season. During the high season (from December to April), prices increase as the season approaches, and it is not uncommon for no rental cars to be available. It is highly recommended to book your car rental as soon as you have reserved your vacation rental and purchased your plane tickets.
While there are several car rental platforms available, Rentîles is the only one that compares more than thirty rental companies in Martinique! This ensures the best price.
There are over a hundred rental companies in Martinique, and many of them are not widely known despite providing excellent service. That's why on Rentîles, previous renters rate the performance of rental agencies. Each offer is assigned a rating out of 5, allowing you to make a better choice, as customer reviews are not moderated by Rentîles.
The search engine also offers the option to sort offers using the "Our recommendation" button, which displays offers with the best rating for a competitive price.
Yes, without hesitation, and it's not to encourage consumption! Without a car, it is impossible to visit the 70 beaches that the island has to offer or explore from the North to the South on the Caribbean or Atlantic side. Taxi prices are prohibitively expensive, and the bus network is still quite basic. Hitchhiking is also common in Martinique, but it can be time-consuming, and it may not optimize your vacation experience.
Just like in mainland France, you will be asked for your driver's license and a credit/debit card for the deposit. The vehicle deposit ranges from 700€ (for small vehicles) to sometimes more than 2000€, so it is strongly advised to increase your bank limit before leaving. Regarding the driver's license, the minimum age and the required years of possession are indicated in the details of each offer. Please check this information before booking.
Electric motorization is booming in mainland France, but the overseas departments are still under-equipped in terms of charging stations. Therefore, in Martinique, it is not recommended to rent an electric model.
The deductible of a rental car is the maximum amount you would have to pay to the rental company in case of an at-fault accident or an accident without an identified third party. The conditions can sometimes vary from one rental company to another, but in practical terms, if you scratch the car, for example, two scenarios arise:
You can get reimbursed for the deductible amount by subscribing to our "deductible reimbursement" plan, thus avoiding unpleasant surprises.
In Martinique, the price at the pump is the same regardless of the gas station. It is set once a month by a prefectural order, so there is no need to compare prices. On the island, almost all gas stations offer a free attendant to fill up your tank.
