Road Rules

Driving is on the left side of the road. The same as Australia, New Zealand, U.K., and Japan.

The maximum speed limit in built-up areas is 50 km/h (30 mph) and on the highway it is 80 km/h (50 mph). A highway in Fiji often means a single carriageway in each direction with stray animals falling into it's potholes.

Driver's Licence

If you hold a valid driver's licence from an English speaking country, then you are good to go. Otherwise you need an international drivers licence which you'll need to obtain from your home country.

Road Conditions

If you're sticking to paved roads, then getting any vehicle should be fine. However, if you wanting to explore a bit further e.g. the highlands of Viti Levu, or any other islands like Vanua Levu or Taveuni, then you'll need a 4WD.

Where Can I Drive?

The two big islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu have 90% of Fiji's roads. Only around 20% are sealed, otherwise you'll will need a 4WD.

The easiest option is to explore the main island Viti Levu, and getting around on sealed roads won't be a problem. Not only is Viti Levu the biggest island, but you'll get the most bang for your buck with the most things to see and the most things to do.

Car Hire/Rental Companies

Along with a valid driver's licence, there is a minimum required age of 21, and in some cases 25, or 2 years worth of driving experience.

Viti Levu is the easiest place to rent vehicles, with Nadi International Airport having the most choice of Fiji car rental companies. Vanua Levu and Taveuni will offer mostly 4WD's due to the rough roads there.

Here are the more reputable Fiji car hire agencies on Viti Levu:

  • Avis Rent a Car -
    - available at Nadi airport, Suva, Nausori airport, Korolevu, and Korotogo.
  • Budget Rent a Car -
    - available at Nadi airport, Suva, Nausori airport, Sigatoka, Labasa, Savusavu, and Taveuni.

Inquire at your resort. Almost everything can be booked/organised at your resort. Even easier if you are staying near Nadi or Denarau Island.

Hiring from Nadi Aiport?

Nadi International Airport handles 95% of international flights. In all likelihood, this is where you are flying in and out of. Consequently, this is where you will find most Fiji car rental options.
