If you are planning a vacation in Dominica, chances are, you already know that there are lots of places to see and things to do.

But, these are scattered all over the island. To enjoy the natural unspoiled beauty that Dominica has to offer, you need to travel to various parts of the island, and hiring a car is definitely one of the best ways to see Dominica. Here are some tips on driving a rental in Dominica.

1. Firstly, you need a valid Driving license in order to drive in Dominica. All car rental companies in Dominica will request for a valid driving license. If you are visiting Dominica as a tourist, you require a local driving permit to rent a car. This can be obtained from the car rental company, or from the Vehicle Licensing department on High Street. It costs EC$30 (US$12) and is valid for one month.

2. Dominica drives on the left hand-side of the road, although there are many left-hand and right-hand drive vehicles on the road.

3. Always book in advance, especially at peak times such as Carnival, Christmas and Independence.

4. Be extra cautious on curves, always blow your horn as you approach a blind curve or hairpin turn, and don’t forget to stay on the left-side of the road.
