Please do your own car rental research. And be sure you fully understand your liability, especially in case of an accident. Although car rentals are readily available, it is not generally recommended to rent a car. There are no "rules of the road" in the DR, and driving can be hazardous. Insurance is also non-existent. If you decide to rent a car, be careful!
