Important information about Puerto Plata car rentals

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Puerto Plata?

Since the Dominican Republic is so close to Haiti, it’s not uncommon for individuals reserving a car rental in Puerto Plata to ask if they can drive their rental vehicle across the border. However, you will want to be cautious when it comes to driving a Puerto Plata car rental internationally, as many car rental companies do not allow this. If you would like to cross the border in your vehicle, make sure that you always contact your chosen rental company ahead of time to see if this is allowed, as you do not want to accidentally nullify your rental agreement or insurance. If your car rental company does allow you to drive the vehicle to Haiti, you may also need to pay for additional insurance or provide an extra document or two, like proof of residency.

Can you rent a rental car in Puerto Plata without a credit card?

To book a car rental in Puerto Plata, most rental companies will require you to pay with a credit card that can sufficiently cover the entire deposit, even for cheap car rentals in Puerto Plata. However, you may be able to find some rental companies that accept alternative forms of payment, such as a debit card, or even cash or check. Because not all rental companies are guaranteed to accept forms of payment that are not credit cards, you will want to make sure that you contact your rental company well ahead of time to see what types of payments are accepted and what is required for you to successfully use an alternative payment.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Puerto Plata?

Make sure that you are familiar with the different driving laws in the region so you can operate your car rental in Puerto Plata as safely as possible. For example, in the Dominican Republic, cars drive on the right-hand side of the road. Seatbelts are required for all individuals in the vehicle, including the driver and passengers. The maximum blood alcohol content for the Dominican Republic is 0.10%, so be careful if you plan on drinking. It is prohibited to use mobile phones while driving unless you are using a hands-free device. Keep in mind that you are supposed to give the right of way to the vehicle that is on the bigger street.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Puerto Plata?

Even if you are an international traveler and do not have a driver’s license from the Dominican Republic, you can still rent a car during your stay in Puerto Plata, including an economy car rental and a passenger van rental. To successfully rent a vehicle, the first step will be to provide a driver’s license that is not expired and will not expire before the return date of your rental. This can either be a driver’s license from your home country or an international driver’s license. In addition to providing your chosen rental company with a license, you will also need to provide them with the original copy of your passport. Most rental companies will need to make photocopies of these two documents and keep them within your file. Keep in mind that to rent a rental car anywhere in the Dominican Republic, it is required that you be at least 25 years old. Some companies may also ask for additional forms from international travelers, like proof of residency.
