Bus driving along Upolu coastline in Samoa

Accidents

When renting a vehicle, always ask about the company’s insurance policy.

Most will offer various insurance options to reduce the insurance excess in the case of an accident.

Because driving is quite slow in Samoa, there aren’t many accidents. However, if you’re involved in a motor accident, the Samoan Road Code advises that you should:

Stop your vehicle

If it is unsafe to do so, drive to the nearest police station to report the accident. Any accident should be reported within 24 hours.

Check if there are any injuries

If so, take the injured person to the nearest hospital or medical centre.

If there are no injuries...

You must give your name, address, registration details of the vehicle and the name and address of the owner (or rental company) to any police officer or other person concerned.

In an emergency: Call 911

For an ambulance, Police or in the event of a fire.

If calling on your mobile phone call +685 911.
