Vanuatu's two main towns of Port Vila (Efate) and Luganville (Espiritu Santo) offer car hire options for when you're on your Vanuatu holiday. Port Vila is home to a number of international brands (both in town and at the airport [easy for pick up after disembarking your flight to Vanuatu]), while Luganville is home to a smaller range of local options.

The car rentals all showcase an extensive fleet of modern cars and air conditioned. Your visit to the companies listed below, comes complete with personalised customer service to assist in choosing a car that best suits your travel plans. There are cars for all groups like families, couples, and independent travellers. Or if you feel like a two wheeler instead, there are fun and user friendly scooters also for hire in Port Vila and Luganville.

To hire a vehicle, a valid drivers licence from your own country is required. The minimum age for renting a car is 23, while for a scooter it is 17, provided you've held a valid driver's licence for over a year.

Hiring a car or scooter in Port Vila or Luganville allows you the freedom to go on a road trip, whether it be a round-island Efate journey out of Port Vila, stopping off at the many beaches and eateries along the way, or a trip up the Champagne Coast from Luganville.

Driving tips:

  • Driving is on the right-hand side of the road - always give way to traffic coming from the left
  • The speed limit in Port Vila and Luganville is 50km/h and 80km/h out of town
  • Road conditions and signage outside of town centres can be rough, so take care. Watch for people or animals on the road, and ask for directions if in doubt
  • If you are driving outside town centres, be certain to check there is enough fuel in your tank, as petrol stations are limited to urban areas
