Top Tips for Renting a Car in Puerto Rico

In Puerto Rico, child car seat rules follow the US system, so children under the age of eight must travel in a suitable car seat. Children under four years old must be seated in a child seat, while children between the ages of four and eight and who are less than 4 ft, 9 in and below 80 lbs. must travel in a booster seat. Children under the age of 12 can sit in the front seat of cars only if airbags are disabled.As public transport is lacking on the island, renting a car in Puerto Rico allows you to discover both the cities and the coast. Instead of spending money on tours, plan your own road trip around the island and venture beyond San Juan to Playa Sucia in Cabo Rojo, which is a 123 km (76 mi) drive to the southwest of the island.If you plan to go off the beaten track with your rental car in Puerto Rico, it is worth considering a larger car. A four-wheel drive will benefit your journey around the rain forest, like El Yunque National Forest, especially with its abundance of hills. If you plan to visit the town of Ponce in the south of the island, you should rent a compact car to explore the Creole culture and seafront boardwalk.Around Puerto Rico, you will find plenty of parking options, including free spaces. On most town streets, there are meters in blue zones, known as “Estacionamiento Pagando Metro,” with yellow and white signs. You need to pay at the meter from Monday to Saturday, between 08:00 am and 8:00 pm, hourly rates starting at $0.50. In yellow zones, you cannot park in these areas at any time.

What is driving like in Puerto-Rico?

You will need to drive on the right-hand side of the road when you rent a car in Puerto Rico. The Puerto Rican roads are well maintained, and most of the signposts are in Spanish. You will come across four toll roads on the island, which cost anything from $0.75 to $3.00 for small vehicles, or you can invest in an electronic payment tag. Between midnight and 5:00 am, you may cross red traffic lights, provided you stop first.

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Puerto-Rico?

If you plan to rent a car in Puerto Rico, the minimum age for drivers is 21 years old, although this may vary by car category. The maximum age limit for renting a car is 75 years old, and drivers younger than 25 can expect a young driver surcharge. You will need your domestic or international driving license to drive in the country.

How are gas prices in Puerto-Rico?

You will find that the average price of gas is $0.90 per liter or $3.40 per gallon, when you rent a car in Puerto Rico. There are several gas stations around the island and along the main highways; stations stay open until about 7:00 pm. You need to pay inside the kiosk before pumping your gas.

What are the speed limits in Puerto-Rico?

The maximum speed limits are considerably slower in Puerto Rico compared to elsewhere. In residential areas the speed limit is 40 km/h (25 mph), and on national roads you can travel up to 72 km/h (45 mph). On highways, the maximum speed limit ranges between 88 km/h (55 mph) and 105 km/h (65 mph).

Accidents & Liability

 What is Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)? Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not insurance. It is a written agreement between the renter and the client in which the renter waive all or some claims against the client for damages to the rented vehicle provided it is used and operated in conformity with the provisions of the rental agreement.

 What about liability coverage?  Is it included on the rental rate or on the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)? It is no included on the rental rate or on the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).  According to Puerto Rico law, renters are liable for damages to third parties.  We strongly suggest that you check you personal auto policy for liability coverage when renting a car.  We provide Renters Liability Insurance at an additional cost if you have no liability coverage on you personal auto policy and want to be protected against claims.  

What happens if the car is damaged, stolen, or in an accident?  If the car is stolen or has been involved in an accident, first call the local police or appropriate law enforcement agency. Next, call the office where the car was rented, give them your rental agreement number and explain what has happened. You’ll be led through the procedure to get you going again.

I purchased Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), what do I do in case of an accident?  Simply fill out Target Rent a Car’s accident report and a deductible fee, if any, will be charged.  

I declined the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), what do I do in case of an accident? Fill out Target Rent a Car’s accident report. Target Rent a Car will prepare an estimate of damages. The renter will be responsible for the damages to the rented vehicle (including the entire actual cash value of the vehicle in case of a total loss or theft).  It will be the renter’s responsibility to file a claim with any personal insurance or credit card insurance that the renter may have.  Target Rent a Car will provide the renter with all documents needed to process a claim: rental agreement, accident report, and estimate of damages, pictures, vehicle registration, etc.

 Safety In Puerto Rico

Do accidents occur regularly? Accidents and vehicle theft aren’t something we like to think about, especially on a trip, but they can happen even to the most experienced and careful driver. Optional waivers like the CDW (as outlined above) may be purchased to reduce or eliminate your financial exposure. Remember that, as the renter, you are liable for all parking and moving traffic violations, both domestic and international, so please drive safely and observe all ordinances.

When returning to the airport, how much time in advance do I have to be at Target Rent a Car? Please give us one hour in addition to whatever time your airline requires you.

What are my insurance options to protect the rented vehicle? There are 3 ways to protect the rented vehicle.

  • 1. Purchase Target Rent a Car’s Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
  • 2. Use your personal insurance. Proof of insurance will be required.
  • 3. Use the credit card insurance. Renter must know if his or her credit card provides insurance in Puerto Rico and must know the terms and conditions.  Most of the credit cards offer secondary insurance.  Also the length of coverage on credit card range from 15 to 30 days.
