Car hire in Antigua
Hiring a car in Antigua
Antigua (pronounced ‘an-tee-ga’) is one of the Leeward Islands in the West Indies region of the Caribbean.
Many people head here intending to do little more than soak up some serious rays, but there is plenty to do to break up your time in Antigua, from a few rounds of golf to getting pally with a stingray (more on that later).
At just 14 miles long and 11 miles wide, Antigua is one of the smallest islands in the Caribbean, so you won’t be racking up thousands of miles in your hire car.
However, with 365 beaches to choose from, ranging from the bustling Dickenson Bay to the deserted Half Moon Bay, it is possible to go an entire year without sunbathing on the same beach twice.
What you need to know
Your hire car will prove invaluable in reaching some of Antigua’s more notable beaches - such as Jabberwock Beach - that aren’t served by public transport. It’s worth adding that the buses can be whimsical and unreliable too.
That means booking your hire car through Holiday Autos will weed out any potential inconveniences. You’ll have access to the best prices and vehicles from a number of suppliers, as well as the peace of mind knowing that there’s a vehicle waiting for you upon arrival.
Because there are no fees for cancelling or modifying your booking, there’s no need to worry if your plans change either. There’s even a support line, open 24/7, should any problems arise whilst driving in Antigua.
That’s why more than five million people have turned to Holiday Autos to arrange their car hire in over 170 countries worldwide.
Where to pick up your car
Antigua’s V.C Bird International Airport (ANU) is situated in the north-west of the island, roughly six miles out from the centre of capital St. Johns.
With just a handful of car hire providers operating out of the airport with a limited fleet, it’s advised that you use our booking tool before flying out.
Familiar names like Avis and Budget can be found inside the terminal, so just keep an eye out for their desks.
