FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

General Information

Punta Cana lies in the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic, La Altagracia. Its name is derived from the abundance of cane palms found in the region; it literally means ‘Tip of the White Cane Palms’. Due to a major influx of tourists in search of a Caribbean retreat, the area has in recent decades experienced a boom in constructions and infrastructure. You will find leviathan resorts along the expanse of the coast, with more being built as part of ambitious ventures by investors. The resorts are reminiscent of small cities, where you can find any imaginable service and comfort for your enjoyment. Scuba-diving is perhaps the most attractive attraction of the area; clear waters and rich ecosystems with countless species of fish and coral life provide the quintessential underwater experience. The culinary world of Punta Cana is highlighted by a myriad of top-notch restaurants offering both regional and international delicacies; close proximity to the water means you can expect scrumptiously prepared seafood fresh from the ocean. Apart from sunning yourself on the beach and gorging yourself on milk-laden coconuts, the resorts offer numerous activities to get your heart pumping including: kayaking, windsurfing, golfing, and jet skis.

Further inland you will encounter tropical mangroves and coconut forests, converting this area into a magical paradise. If you wish to explore the cultural roots of the country, you cantake your HAPPYCAR rental car for a 2.5 hour drive west to the capital city of Santo Domingo. It was the first European settlement in the Western Hemisphere, and boasts impressive baroque architecture, Caribbean cuisine, and several museums dedicated to preserving the memory of the Taino natives.

Nature enthusiasts will want to visit the Parque Nacional del Este, a beautiful national park southwest of Punta Cana; forests, mangroves, trails, caves, cliffs, and a myriad of bird species await you here. Isla Saona lies just off the coast, and features a sublime beachfront atmosphere with inland mangrove swamps.
