Car Hire Saint Denis Airport (Roland Garros Airport)  Useful Information

Reunion is a lot bigger than you would think so hiring a car from Saint-Denis Airport will be essential if you are to make the most of your time on the island. The island is mountainous and rugged so why not hire a rugged 4 x 4 rental vehicle from us or a sporty little number to tackle the ‘Road of 420 Bends’ that winds up into the mountains. Whichever you choose, you know you will find just what you want in our extensive range of Saint-Denis Airport hire cars.
 

If you're collecting a car from Roland Garros Airport (also known as Saint Denis Airport) in Réunion, here's a comprehensive guide on driving and distances:

Driving from Roland Garros Airport:

  1. Documentation: Ensure you have a valid driving license, preferably accompanied by an International Driving Permit (IDP) if your license is not in English or French. The car rental agency will also likely require your passport and credit card for security.

  2. Car Inspection: Before you leave the rental car premises, inspect the car for any damages and ensure they are noted in the contract to avoid misunderstandings when you return the car.

  3. Adjusting to the Car: Familiarize yourself with the car's controls, especially if it's significantly different from what you're accustomed to. Check the headlights, indicators, wipers, and brakes before hitting the road.

Driving in Réunion:

  1. Drive on the right-hand side of the road.

  2. Speed Limits:

    • Towns and cities: 50 km/h
    • Open roads: 90 km/h
    • Expressways: 110 km/h
  3. Parking: Use designated parking areas and avoid prohibited zones.

  4. Road Conditions: While main roads are in good condition, some interior roads might be challenging, especially in mountainous regions.

  5. Navigation: Using GPS or navigation apps like Google Maps can be beneficial for real-time traffic updates and directions.

  6. Fuel: There are several fuel stations around Saint Denis and other major towns. However, if traveling to remote areas, fill up in advance.

Distances from Roland Garros Airport:

  1. Saint-Denis (capital city): About 10 km, roughly 15 minutes drive.

  2. Saint-Paul: Approximately 35 km, around 40 minutes drive along the N1.

  3. Saint-Gilles (popular beach town): Approximately 45 km, around 50 minutes drive along the N1.

  4. Cilaos (in the Cirque de Cilaos): Around 85 km, but can take up to 2 hours or more due to the winding roads.

  5. Saint-Pierre (southern part of the island): Roughly 85 km, about 1 hour 15 minutes drive via the N1 and N3.

General Tips:

  • Stay alert for unpredictable driving behaviors and always signal your intentions.

  • Be cautious in mountainous areas, as roads can be narrow and winding. Weather conditions can change suddenly, affecting visibility and road conditions.

  • If planning to hike or explore remote areas, ensure your rental car is equipped for the terrain. Some sites may require a 4x4 vehicle.

By preparing in advance and being cautious, you can have a wonderful driving experience in Réunion. The island's diverse landscapes offer plenty of scenic drives, making it a great destination to explore by car. Safe travels!
