What you need to know before driving around the Reunion?

The road networks are in good conditions, which gives you the possibility to discover the whole island by car and enjoy the unbeatable beauty of the landscape. Roadway signs are clear and the rules of the road in the Reunion are the same as in France Metropolitain. The secondary road network consists of a large number of small steep winding roads. We advise that you hire a diesel car, with more engine power, particularily, if you are more than two people travelling.

Reunion Taxis are very expensive, the most budget friendly option here, is to rent a car. Tourist sites are often inaccessible by taxi or bus.

Discovering the Reunion Island

Cascades à la Réunion Located about 700 kilometers east of Madagascar, southwest of the Indian Ocean, Reunion is an ideal destination for Nature Lovers!

With a steep mountain landscape, especially with the Piton of the Fournaise, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, this island has a lush nature mixing lagoons, luxurious waterfalls, preserved cirques and remparts. The Reunion Island is an exception within the tropical islands of the Indian Ocean Rather than dreamful beaches, Reunion offers cirques, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, any hiker's dreamland. The Reunion's coastline is divided into two parts, magnificent sandy beaches on one side and pure raw nature on the other side.

Even though it is far from tourist resorts, The Capital City of Saint-Denis will enhance you with its cultural wealth, monuments, gardens and traditional markets.

FAQ Car Rental Reunion

Fortunately, all car rental agencies in Réunion offer unlimited mileage on their vehicles. Only perhaps private rentals might be an exception to this rule. This allows you to travel all over the island without any surprises!

The island of Réunion is very popular with tourists in October/November/December, especially during the world-famous Grand Raid. During this period, prices can rise sharply, and it is not uncommon for a shortage of rental cars to occur at this time. The earlier you book your rental, the more likely you are to get a competitive price.
Fortunately, Rentîles compares about forty rental agencies in Réunion and offers you the best rate or the best value for money (option "Our recommendation").

Did you see an attractive offer but aren't familiar with the rental agency? It's normal, as independent agencies not affiliated with a large brand are common on the island. Their prices are often lower, but how can you be sure of their services? Aware of this issue, Rentîles has put two tools at your disposal. Rental agencies are rated out of 5 by former renters to help you compare the services of different companies. The "Our recommendation" button, on the other hand, ranks the best rental agencies with competitive prices.

The island of Réunion is twenty times larger than the capital, so choosing not to rent a means of transportation would mean missing out on a lot of what Réunion has to offer. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to rent a vehicle to make the most of your vacation on the island.

The legislation is the same as in mainland France: to rent a vehicle, you must present a valid driver's license (that meets the rental conditions requirements) and a credit/debit card for the deposit. Please note that the deposit can exceed 1000 euros, so it is advisable to inform your bank a few days before picking up the vehicle.

Unlike in mainland France, electric vehicles are not yet popular on the island of Réunion, and for good reason: few gas stations or parking lots are equipped with charging stations. To avoid any inconvenience, it is currently not recommended to rent an electric vehicle in this region.

ust like with your car insurance contract, the rental agency has a deductible that may be higher or lower. On Rentîles, this is indicated in the "Details" section. The deductible is the amount to be paid if the cost of repairs resulting from an at-fault accident or an accident without an identified third party is higher than the deductible amount. Otherwise, the renter will only pay the cost of the repairs. The Rentîles platform offers, for a few euros per day, the option to protect yourself from such a scenario by getting reimbursed for the deductible amount in case of an accident.

In Réunion, as in other overseas departments, gas prices are set monthly by a prefectural decree. Therefore, there is no need to compare prices, as they will be the same from one station to another.
