Car hires in St Lucia: practical information

Where to rent a car in St Lucia

Planning a trip to beautiful St Lucia? The easiest way to get around this island is either by taxi or rental car. Most tourists hoping to see more than their resort will opt for a car hire from either George FL Charles Airport (SLU) or Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) when they disembark from their flights to St Lucia.

Nearly all of the car hire companies in St Lucia offer unlimited mileage and you’re most likely to find the cheapest rates by launching a search on and book online. Feeling adventurous? Why not book a scooter or motorcycle for your holiday in St Lucia?

Driving in St Lucia: parking and other tips

Roads in St Lucia are generally well maintained but terrain is hilly and some roads are particularly narrow, so be cautious when overtaking and driving at nighttime. Luckily for British travellers, St Lucians also drive on the left-hand side of the road.

Parking is widely available but it’s recommended to leave your St Lucia rent car in a secure hotel parking lot at night. You’ll almost always find a gravel shoulder to stop at if there’s a good view along the road, great if you want to take a photograph.

Road trips from St Lucia: what to do, what to see

Pigeon Island

Pigeon Island

St Lucia’s Pigeon Island Nature Reserve is located just north of Gros Islet and is home to some of the oldest buildings on the island. Welcome back in time to colonial Britain! The reserve also offers some spectacular views across the water to Martinique.



One of the top attractions on the island are the sulphur springs near Soufriere. There is a pool there that the hot water flows through; it’s the perfect place to take a dip so don’t forget your swim suit and towel! While you’re in the area, don’t miss a trip to the Pitons waterfall, fed by volcanic waters.

Gros Pitons

Gros Pitons

Climbing the Gros Pitons will take a bit of training but it’s a very achievable goal, and what an accomplishment while on holidays! The trailhead begins at around 600 ft elevation and requires about two hours of strenuous hiking to reach the summit that sits at about 2600 ft above sea level. About 1.5 hours are needed to descend.
