Car rental location Puerto Plata Airport

Puerto Plata Airport Guide


Located on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, Puerto Plata International Airport, also known as Gregorio Luperón International Airport, has grown enormously in recent years. Today, more than 700,000 passengers pass through the airport each year and is the 4th largest airport in the Dominican Republic. There are many wonderful sights and attractions to see whilst visiting the island, making car hire a great choice for getting around. Travellers are advised to book car hire online in advance of travel.

Airport Facilities

Airlines serving the airport include: American Airlines, Continental, Finnair, Lauda Air, Northwest Airlines, Novair Airlines, Premiair and TWA. Car hire is available and must be booked prior to arrival.

A single-level terminal building services all charter, domestic and international flights. Within the mian terminal building passengers will find a bank, currency exchange bureau, post office and ATM machines. There is also an information desk and tourist help desk located here.

The airport has a lovely selection of restaurants, cafés and bars, and there is a wide range of both duty-free and regular shopping available. A newsagent/tobacconist provides print media in various languages. There are limited business facilities provided by the VIP lounge which must be booked in advance.

Passengers that may require wheelchairs or special assistance need to inform the airlines they made the booking with. Disabled facilities are located throughout the airport including toilets, ramps and allocated parking spaces, which are available in the car park opposite the terminal.


Puerto Plata International Airport is located approximately 18kms from Puerto Plata's city center, and is easily accessed by both private and public transportation. The airport can be reached by car via well signposted roads. Car hire is available from the arrivals hall, however, prices are far more expensive at the airport so it is always best to book online in advance for cheaper prices.

Taxis and minivans are available from outside the terminal building and run to central Puerto Plata and other nearby locations. Be sure to negotiate a price before getting into the taxi. Buses also operate to and from the airport, as well throughout the city itself. Prices are cheap to travel by bus, although they can get crowded.

There is one car park which offers both 160 short and long term parking spaces and is located directly opposite the terminal building. The pick up and drop off zones are located outside the entrance to the main terminal building. For the mobility impaired is special assistance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
