Tips for hiring a car in Samoa

Browse helpful tips for hiring a car in Samoa including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 11 June 2024.
  • While it’s not a requirement for children to travel in car seats from Faleolo International Airport (APW), the primary airport in Samoa, it's strongly recommended for safety reasons. According to Samoan local traffic regulations, you should use a car seat for children up to the age of seven. While you can hire a car at the airport, it's advisable to inquire in advance whether or not the hire company provides car seats for a child's safety, as not all companies may offer this service.
  • Before heading out with your hired vehicle, you need to know where to fuel up. You can find petrol stations near Faeolo International Airport on Upolu, around Apia, within Salelologa and along the main road around Savai’i. However, you will not find any on the eastern side of Upolu. Therefore, ensure you have sufficient fuel before exploring this side of the island. Also, know that all petrol stations in Samoa are full-service, meaning you'll be served by a station attendant. All you have to do is tell them how much you would like to fuel up. Payment is mostly done in cash.
  • Note that vehicles approaching from the right always have the right of way. All vehicles can also make a free left turn at all intersections (as long as the road is clear). When turning right, give way to any oncoming vehicle turning left. Also, make sure to inspect your car thoroughly for any existing damage before driving off and ensure you have current photos for documentation.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Samoa, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 11 June 2024.
  • Should I hire a car in Samoa?

    Hiring a car in Samoa can be a great idea for various reasons. First, Samoa's scattered islands offer limited public transportation options, making a hire car convenient for exploring at your own pace. Hiring a car also offers flexibility to reach less-crowded destinations that are less accessible by public transport, such as secluded beaches, hidden waterfalls and traditional villages. Must-visit attractions like the To Sua Ocean Trench, Lalomanu Beach and the lush Upolu interior are best explored with the freedom and convenience of a car. Samoa's road network is well-maintained, providing easy access to popular sites. Furthermore, the independence to stop and enjoy the stunning natural beauty, culture and local life along the way makes hiring a car the optimal choice for an enriching Samoan experience.

  • What is driving like in Samoa?

    Driving in Samoa has its own unique charm and nuances. While the driving style is generally relaxed and friendly, it may differ from the mainland, with a more laid-back approach. Locals often drive at slower speeds and are courteous on the road. In most of Samoa, including popular spots, you'll find a simple road network with well-maintained asphalt roads, though some rural areas may have unpaved sections. Samoa follows the left-hand driving system, which can be an adjustment for those accustomed to right-hand driving. One of the main highways is Cross Island Road, connecting Apia on Upolu with Lalomanu Beach, a popular tourist destination.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Samoa?

    In Samoa, the minimum age to hire a car typically ranges from 21 to 25 years, depending on the hire company's policies. Some agencies may allow younger drivers but often at an additional fee. This surcharge is levied due to the higher perceived risk associated with younger, less experienced drivers. To hire a car, you generally need a valid international driving permit (IDP) along with your regular driver's licence. Ensure your IDP is issued in your home country before arriving in Samoa, as it's usually a requirement. It's crucial to check with your chosen hire agency for specific age requirements and potential surcharges, as these can vary

  • What is the cheapest city to get a rental car in Samoa?

    At $114/day, the cheapest car rental price in Samoa was found in Apia. On average, Apia has the cheapest daily rental car price ($130/day), which is 0% below average price for cities in Samoa.
