Driving tips for your Providenciales rental car
Turks and Caicos is a British territory, so cars drive on the left-hand side, yet most cars are USA imports with left-handed steering. If you are concerned about this, talk to your rental car provider about hiring a car with right-hand steering.
● Drive on the left-hand side, overtake on the right.
● Beware of shuttle buses and school buses which make frequent stops; passengers often unload into traffic lanes.
● The island doesn’t have any traffic lights so roundabouts are common. Always give way to traffic on the right.
● Look out for potholes and poorly maintained roads.
