One of the comforts and conveniences of traveling to Puerto Rico is how easy it is to get around.
In the San Juan area and nearby districts ridesharing and walking seems like a good idea, but if you’re planning to be on island for over three days and want to venture outside the metropolitan area, renting a car is more practical.
Every major car rental company has presence in Puerto Rico as well as several smaller local businesses, so you have plenty of options based on specific needs for your trip. In total, there are 14 companies for you to choose from.
Arrangements for renting a car can be made prior to your trip or upon arrival (having a reservation in advance is recommended during peak travel times such as major holidays). Most of the companies have offices both at the airport and nearby districts, making it easy to access if you decide last-minute that taking a road trip will be part of your itinerary.
For people traveling from the U.S. mainland, renting a car in Puerto Rico is the same as stateside; you need to be 25 years or older, have a valid driver’s license and a credit card. Driving here is on the same side of the road as the mainland as well.
