Nadi Airport Guide

Car Hire

Fiji Airport, officially known as Nadi International Airport, is the main international airport for the island paradise that is Fiji. The airport is located six miles north of the city centre of Nadi, on the western side of the main island, Viti Levu. The airport is 120 miles away from the capital, Suva. Car hire in Fiji is easy to arrange and a popular way to explore the main island. Public transportation options are not up to western standards, but visitors use buses and taxis to get from the airport to the city centre.

Fiji has both paved and unpaved roads. Visitors should take care when driving on unsealed roads, which can be treacherous during rain. Generally, the driving level in Fiji is low so visitors should drive defensively to avoid accidents – this also means watching out for animals and pedestrians crossing roads. Maximum speed limits should be adhered to, even if they are not strictly enforced: 50mph on large roads and 30mph in residential areas. Driving at night should be avoided as most rural roads are unlit and drunk drivers are common. Seatbelts are only compulsory for front seat passengers but for safety, all passengers should wear seatbelts. Petrol stations are common in the large towns but sparse in rural areas, so long-distance driving should be planned in advance.

See our guide to Fiji for more information on driving here.

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).
