Buying or renting a car during your stay on Curaçao?

Buy or rent a car on Curacao

If you go do an internship or work in Curacao do you need a car or a scooter. When you have a car driver's license you will go faster for a car rental on Curaçao. You are then much more flexible to go where you want.

Sometimes we get the question whether it is wiser to buy a car. At first this seems more interesting because you may be cheaper, but here on Curaçao you do not buy a car for the same price as in the Netherlands. 

Buying a car cheaply on Curaçao

The moment you see a car for sale under 5000 ANG, you have to scratch your head whether this is really a good car. Usually cars are sold below this price because they cause ?headaches? involve. Small accidents often happen on the island and then cars are put together with a few tyraps. 

Buying a car if you are not registered in Curaçao

Yes, it is possible, but the insurance does not always want to cooperate. Not every insurance company wants to enter into an agreement with you because you are only on the island for a short time. The advantage of renting a car on Curaçao is that the insurance is already included in the price, so you do not incur any extra costs. 

Car repair costs on Curaçao

Cheap cars are 'headache' cars so keep in mind that when you buy a cheap car you will have to go to the garage.

Unfortunately car parts are not always in stock on the island so it has to be imported. This causes extra costs because you also have to pay import duties. Let alone the costs you have to incur for a replacement car as long as your car is at the garage. 

All in all, we always advise to rent a car on Curaçao and not to buy a car for during your internship or work period. It takes a lot of arranging and you often lose more money than you initially thought. That stress is definitely not worth it! We have a number of cars which you can choose from and which are certainly reliable to rent.

Not all accommodations on Curaçao have standard linen. That is why we offer this service. That saves a lot of space in your suitcase ;-) 

The linen consists of a pillow, bottom sheet and duvet cover. On Curaçao we do not sleep under blankets because of the heat. No towels are included. 

If you use our pick-up service, you will receive your linen directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.  


Calling each other on Curaçao is very expensive. That is why a local SIM card is definitely recommended. 

You put this SIM card in your phone, but you keep your normal WhatsApp number. This way you can call and app with the home front & friends via WhatsApp as you are used to.

You call each other on Curaçao at the local rate with your new local telephone number.
