Jeeps are very popular for pick ups and returns to the airport in San Juan. They are ideal modes of transportation and make exploring the island easier. As mentioned before, renting a jeep gives you the opportunity to truly see the area and explore at your own pace. It is cheaper then opting for public means of transport. Renting a jeep will reduce the stress of looking for shared rides or trying to figure out what bus or train goes where and at what time. It is especially helpful when you are travelling around with family or a number of friends. Why hassle yourself when this convenient option is here to rescue?
To make the most of your car rental, it is probably a good idea to do a bit of research and see which rental company has the best prices and benefits on offer. Make sure you are over 25 years old (although, some rentals are less strict and will allow for people over 21 to rent from them), own a driver’s license and a credit or debit cars. You will also need Liability Insurance and Collision Damage Insurance which can be bought at rental locations- in case you do not have any on you.
Additionally, it is a good idea to book your car before setting off on your trip to San Juan. Familiarize yourself with road signs as they will most likely be in Spanish. It is also advised that you drive very carefully as the roads are very narrow and congested. Be careful of parking too; it is advised that you park in a garage and explore your selected area of tour on foot.
It is best to inspect the car thoroughly before driving off the lot. This will help you protect yourself against potential false damage claims. Take photos of the car’s condition to serve as evidence.
Note that you will be paying in the Dollar since Puerto Rico is part of the United States of America.
