Car rental in Tobago is easy to arrange and there’s plenty of choice of vehicles.
Prices vary, but expect to pay about £30 per day for a saloon car without air conditioning.
With air conditioning prices go up. Air-con in Tobago is worth the extra cost. Your car will get hot without it.
Four wheel drive jeeps are popular with tourists and do cost more than cars.
Car companies are generally reliable. You ought to shop around or ask for a recommendation from a hotel or perhaps another tourist there already hiring. Companies and managers can change! You may pay less and the hub caps probably won’t match but most companies have a 24 hour assistance service and offer good local driving advice.
You need a full international/UK drivers licence to hire a vehicle in Tobago.
You need to keep your car papers and licence on you when driving the car.
The speed limit is 30mph (50kmph)
There’s only a handful of petrol stations and they’re not open all day and evening, so top up whenever you can. Petrol is very cheap at about 40p per gallon.
Premium unleaded - $4TT per gallon; super unleaded - $2.77TT per gallon
A car driving through a Tobago village, especially if you travel away from Crown Point, is an event for some Tobagonians. Some people may ask you for a lift - children walking home from school, or women who’ve walked miles to the nearest shop. Whether you stop for them or not is up to you. You could end up being invited home for tea, but whatever you decide to do, you should exercise caution.
Watch out for animals: In rural areas, you may run into (literally) sheep or cows in the middle of the road. Chickens are everywhere, and rural areas are closer to the city centre than you may believe.
Simply Tobago uses Sunbird - an efficient, friendly and reliable service.

Some car rental companies charge an extra fee for collision/damage waiver. However, some credit cards offer insurance coverage to their customers as part of their services. American Express and Visa cards, for example, offer collision insurance, but you should check coverage before hiring the vehicle.
