St Vincent and The Grenadines: Car Rental Mini Guide

Car Hire is available on St Vincent and the Grenadines. St Vincent has a small airport with direct flights from Antigua and Barbados but none from further afield but the  ET Joshua Airport however is an international airport . Flights originating in the UK travel direct to both islands making travel there time consuming but not impossible. 

In Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, the road conditions can vary depending on the specific island you are on. Here are some general characteristics of the roads in this Caribbean nation:

  1. Mainland Saint Vincent: The roads on the main island of Saint Vincent are generally in better condition compared to the smaller Grenadine islands. You will find paved roads with two lanes in many areas. However, some rural or mountainous areas may have narrower and winding roads, so drive with caution.

  2. Grenadine Islands: On smaller Grenadine islands, such as Bequia, Mustique, and Canouan, the road infrastructure may be less developed. Some roads might be unpaved or narrower, and driving conditions can be challenging, especially on hilly terrain.

  3. Traffic: Traffic congestion is generally not a major issue, especially on the smaller islands. However, traffic rules and driving practices can be more relaxed compared to larger urban areas.

  4. Road Signs: Road signage is relatively basic, so it's a good idea to have a GPS or map to navigate. Road signs may not always be clear, so ask locals for directions if needed.

  5. Driving Style: The driving style in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is generally relaxed. Keep in mind that some drivers may not strictly adhere to traffic rules, so stay alert and drive defensively.

  6. Renting a Car: Renting a car is a popular way to explore the islands, ensure you have a valid driver's license and follow any specific rental company terms and conditions.

  7. Road Safety: While road conditions are generally manageable, be cautious on winding and hilly roads, especially after heavy rain. Watch out for pedestrians, animals, and slower-moving vehicles.

  8. Speed Limits: Speed limits are typically posted, but enforcement may vary. Always adhere to speed limits and drive at a safe speed for the road conditions.

Remember that driving conditions can differ from one island to another, so it's essential to research and plan accordingly if you intend to explore multiple islands in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
