Tips for driving in Martinique!

The rules of the road in Martinique are exactly the same as in metropolitan France. Due to the small size of the island, distances are not that important. That's why car rental companies in Martinique, offer you a package with unlimited mileage; saving your caribbean budget.

If this is your first trip to Martinique, don't be surprised by all the hitch-hikers on the island. This is a widespread practice: hitch-hikers usually only wait about 10 minutes for a passing car to pick them up.

Discover Martinique Island !

MartiniqueIn the Lesser Antilles, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Martinique is an island known for its beautiful landscapes, beaches and its tropical Creole heat!

The Martinican roads are quite curvy, due to the island's volcanic relief, so you need to be careful, especially when driving in the rain.  Rentîles advises you to rent a diesel car, if you have more than two passengers, the heavy motor power will help you climb the hilly slopes of Martinique.

Try to avoid the outskirts of Fort-de-France early in the morning and late in the afternoon in order to avoid traffic jams.

FAQ Car Rental 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.

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:

  • If the repair cost is higher than the deductible amount, you will only pay the deductible amount.
  • If the repair cost is lower, you will only pay the repair cost.

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.
