Car Hire, Fiji - Find the Cheapest Car Rentals

(1/06/2015) in Fiji $

If you are looking to hire a car in Fiji, then you need to know the prices tend to be a little more expensive than you might expect. The reason for that, is the high import duty on vehicles. Prices to buy a vehicle in Fiji can be double (or more) than what you would pay for something similar in NZ or Australia. So hire companies naturally have to increase prices to cover the high costs of owning a fleet 

When renting a car you must make sure the car is retested with the government. This means the car must have a yellow number plate starting with the letters LR, (licence Rental) this if followed by three numbers. You will happy to know the car you will be renting has a minimum $1,000,000 Public liability insurance and a current WOF which is far more stringent then a WOF for a private car and should not fall apart before you drive 10Km out of Nadi.

 We can thank the Prime Minister of Fiji Mr Frank Bainimarama for cracking down on people renting out there extremely dangerous rust buckets private cars as rentals. I hate saying this but do not drive out of the yard with out insurance, You will under stand why very quickly.

You will get a better price if you rent for two day or longer.

 We did have several companies listed here. However, due to poor customer support, fine print and hidden charges that we didn't like, and a frustrating lack of communication when trying to book.  Thay has since been removed.   Our search will continue for any other rental companies that we feel are worth recommending. All the prices were given to me over the phone, then I called into there yard to have a look at there cars and to see how clean and tidy the yard was.
