Driving is on the right in Aruba, so there won't be many problems for North Americans, Europeans and most South Americans when zipping around the island. We created a page Traffic Signs & Rules so you can prepare yourself when you rent a car, motorcycle or a bike.
You'll find a stretch mall full of car rental agencies at the airport, in a building across from the
arrival area. We suggest you place a reservation for your car in advance. This will

stand in line, only to find out that the car you want is no longer available.
