Rental cars

Renting a car or van in Samoa is a popular and easy way for visitors to get around.

There are several vehicle hire agencies located at Faleolo International Airport and in Apia.

You can choose to book a vehicle before arriving in Samoa which ensures availability, or ask at a kiosk when you arrive at the airport or port.

All visiting drivers in Samoa must have a temporary drivers’ licence, which is issued on presentation of a full drivers’ licence from visitors’ country of origin. Many vehicle rental companies will issue a temporary licence, or visit Samoa Post or the Land Transport Authority in Apia.
