      Car Rental in Jersey: Self-Driving the Channel Islands

      Hiring a car in Jersey is an excellent way to explore the largest of the Channel Islands at your own pace—particularly if you plan to take it slowly. Make the most of your visit by enjoying each aspect the island has to offer, from the rugged coastline to some excellent surfing beaches and beyond. Here are some tips to help you navigate the island and find the cheapest car hire in Jersey!

      Important Facts about Jersey

      • Language:

      Jersey and the other Channel Islands are the last remnants of the Duchy of Normandy, which is why so many place names are in French. Still, the primary language spoken on Jersey is English, though French and the local language Jèrriais are also recognized and occasionally spoken across the island.

      • Currency:

      The British pound sterling.

      • Jersey is located in the Greenwich Mean Time Zone (UTC+0) and recognizes Daylight Savings Time in the summer months (UTC+1).
      • Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, and the next largest island, Guernsey is located about an hour and a half away by ferry.

      While there is a car ferry from Jersey to Guernsey—or from Jersey to the UK or mainland—most car rental companies prohibit you from taking your car hire on the ferry. If you would like to travel beyond the borders of the island via car hire in Jersey, be sure to speak with your car rental company in advance to acquire the proper paperwork and permissions!

      Left-Hand Driving

      • When you hire your car in Jersey, remember that traffic drives on the left-hand side of the road.

      Driver’s License Requirements for Auto Hire in Jersey

      Although Jersey is a separate political jurisdiction from the United Kingdom, its driver’s license requirements for visitors are quite similar: if you hold a valid driver’s license, you are permitted to drive your rental car in Jersey as a visitor for up to one year. However, if you move to Jersey, you are required to apply for a Jersey driver’s license immediately.

      Get the Best Deal on Car Hire in Jersey at

      Rental cars are available in two locations throughout Jersey, at the Jersey Port in Saint Helier and at the Jersey Airport in Saint Peter. Car hire starts at around €22 per day.

      Tips for Finding Cheap Car Hire in Jersey

      While you should check the prices for rental cars in Jersey at both the airport and the port when you begin planning your trip, you can typically find the best availability for car hire in Jersey at the airport.

      Particularly if you book your rental car in advance, you can find excellent prices for auto hire in Jersey, as EconomyBookings liaises with Hertz to keep rental car prices around €20 a day year-round.

      Car hire can become more expensive in Jersey in the popular summer months, from July through September. If you are planning to visit during these months, be sure to book your auto hire in Jersey at least two months in advance in order to receive the most availability of different car classes, as well as the best prices.

      Key Things to Remember After Picking Up Your Rental Car in Jersey

      Speed limits in Jersey:

        The speed limit across the island is 40 miles per hour (64 kilometres per hour), except in residential or built-up areas, where the speed limit is lower:

        • In residential areas, the speed limit is 20 to 30 mph (32 to 48 km/h).
        • In “Green Lanes,” which are typically frequented by pedestrians and cyclists, the speed limit is 15 mph (24 km/h).

        Parking in Jersey:

        1. You are not permitted to park your car hire in Jersey on roads with curbs marked yellow.
        2. It is prohibited to park on beaches or slipways, with two exceptions:
          • If slipways are explicitly marked with signs that indicate that parking is permitted.
          • If you are transporting a boat to the beach at Saint Brelade’s Bay or La Haule and have applied for a parking permit for your rental car in Jersey in advance.
        3. You can park your Jersey car hire on a number of streets for free in Saint Helier by acquiring a red parking disc. Ask your rental car company if they can provide one for you. You will indicate arrival time on the parking disc and are permitted to park from between 10 minutes and 3 hours, depending on where you park.
        4. Other areas require that you pay for parking, whether your park your car hire in Jersey on the street or in car parks. There are numerous car parks in all the built-up areas across the island, particularly Saint Helier, Saint Brelade, and Saint Peter.
