We strongly recommend renting a vehicle for your visit to Dominica, or arranging for a private driver. Driving is on the left in Dominica, as in all British Commonwealth countries. Dominica is a fairly large island (290 square miles). Since the island’s topography is rugged, the roads are often meandering and sometimes narrow. Some prefer to hire a driver, but many choose to rent a small four-wheel drive to have the freedom to move at will. Renting a jeep is the most cost effective way to explore the island and nearly all visitors do so for this reason. If you choose to drive, we recommend a 4WD vehicle to maximize your exploring capabilities, as some of the sites would be tough for a 2WD car.
Jenner Robinson at Happy Car Rentals (at the airport) will take very good care of you. If you wish to rent a vehicle, please arrange your car rental in advance of your visit, so they can have a 4WD waiting for you upon arrival. Arrange your vehicle reservation in advance with tour and transport captain Jenner directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
