Car Rental in Guadeloupe

Have fun cruising a tropical island in a SIXT Guadeloupe car rental with unlimited mileage. Some of the islands that make up Guadeloupe, such as Les Saints, are more remote. Others, like Pointe-à-Pitre, are more populated and provide opportunities to shop, explore history and experience nightlife. This French territory in the Caribbean is surrounded by beaches and national parks. SIXT offers a wide selection of cars, including sporty SUVs, which are perfect for hiking. A sedan is perfect for solo travelers who want to explore. With your car rental in Guadeloupe, you'll have 24/7 access to our English-speaking customer service team.

Driving Tips in Guadeloupe

Driving is on the right-hand side of the road. You will be driving about 50 km/h in cities, and up to 110 km/h on highways. On Basse-Terre, the mountainous terrain and roads can be dangerous, so take care and avoid nighttime driving. Also avoid parking under palm trees where falling coconuts can damage your vehicle.
