A brief overview of the city of Kingston

A city of two halves, Kingston’s two central areas are comprised of Downtown Kingston and Uptown Kingston. The two don’t often mix and mingle, and each have their own quirks and culture. Downtown Kingston is full of historical buildings, museums and galleries, and is home to many of the city’s businesses. Uptown Kingston is known for its spectacular restaurants, fantastic accommodation options and beautiful parks. Jump in your hired car and spend your time cruising through the streets of the different suburbs, or head to the coast for a more relaxing drive.

The Kingston Airport is located on a sandspit 25km from Kingston CBD. From the airport, take Norman Manley Highway and follow the road over to the island, taking a left onto Sir Florizel Glasspole Highway at the roundabout. Continue onto Port Kingston Causeway, and take a right onto Marcus Garvey Drive. You’ll be in the city in around 35 minutes.

If you arranged to pick up your rental car from the CBD, there are taxis and shuttles available to take you into town from the airport.

What our customers say

Quick and easy booking
Jenny Everitt
The car was perfect for the weekend, but there was no counter at the airport for the Dollar car company I had rented....bit stressful. I needed to call to find out that I needed to go to the Hertz counter. Otherwise I would recommend the GoSee car rental experience.
