How does renting a car work on Curaçao?
Here are a few tips about auto’s in Curaçao:
- If you have an accident in Curaçao, it is arranged differently than in Europe. If you have an accident, you must stop at the place where it happened and then call the Forensys Road Service, who will come by to map the damage and take statements. Your landlord will explain this in more detail, hopefully it won't happen, but of course you never know!
- The roads on Curaçao are not very well paved, so be careful not to get a flat tire through the holes in the road when driving.
- The driving style of Antilians is very different, accelerate and overtake on the right, they all do it here! So pay attention to this and prevent accidents.
All auto’s that Fun Curacao offers have been checked and insured to be safe on the road. Are you unsure which car you want to rent or do you have any questions? Contact Fun Curaçao via the chat function and we will be happy to help you.
FAQ car hire
In Curaçao we drive on the right, so handy for many Europeans and Americans! There are rules such as; the right has priority and only overtakes on the left, but in practice this is often different. If you've been on the road here for a while, you'll notice that the rules are hardly followed and that overtaking on the right or speeding is "normal". So pay attention to this when you rent a car that you look carefully around you and anticipate well on fellow road users instead of on the signs.
Of course this can always happen so keep this in mind! Accidents often happen on Curaçao. Leave your car at the exact spot of the accident (even if it's in the middle of the road) and find a safe spot off the road yourself. Then call 199 Curaçao Road Service and they will come by to map the damage and take statements about the exact cause of the accident. If necessary, call the police or ambulance. If your car needs to be towed away, call the 24/7 roadside assistance on 9247. And of course inform your lessor immediately and discuss the options with them.
The car you rent is standard WA insured and it differs per rental company whether it is also all risk insured, so check with your rental company and make sure this is clearly arranged in advance.
Most roads in Curaçao are bad, there are many holes in the road and the asphalt is poorly maintained. So pay attention to this while driving that you don't get a flat tire through a hole in the road.
Auto’s and parts of auto’s are often stolen in Curaçao, so always put an extra steering wheel lock on your steering wheel and preferably park the car within the gates or in a secure parking lot.
