The one only way to discover Guadeloupe freely and enjoy your holidays is to have a car. In Guadeloupe do not rely on public transportation. Renting a Car is the best and cheapest solution to visit the island.
Here, almost all the best activities are free. Moreover, gas is cheaper than in Europe.
You can go with travel agencies to plan you stay in Guadeloupe but it will be way more expensive than if you do it by yourself. Do not hesitate : Rent a car in Guadeloupe is the best way to enjoy your stay to the maximum and come back with great memories.
If you are in Le Gosier, you will find our Jumbo Car agency very easily, next to the Karibea Hotel Resort. Once you got there, ask for Mylène who will warmly welcome you and present your our offers.
To drop off the car at Le Gosier, you have 2 options :
The agency is open : give the keys to Mylène who will come with you check the car
The agency is closed : Leave the car on the parking lot and put the keys in the mailbox next to the agency.
Be sure that we care a great deal of barrier gestures for COVID-19 !
The most convenient solution to begin your holiday is to pick-up your car at our Jumbo Car Agency of Pointe-à-Pitre Airport when you arrive.
There are a few buses who can take you from the Airport to Le Gosier or Pointe-à-Pitre, but you will have to be patient and forget about comfort. Definitely not what we expect after a 9-hour flight with your luggage to carry and/or children. When you rent your car straight at the airport you choose convenience, which is actually what we are always looking for when on vacation.
Picking-up your car at the Airport means :
Not paying a taxi to take you to your hotel or Airbnb
Save money : Car rental prices at the airport are usually cheaper. You have no other choice than having a car in Guadeloupe, it's better to rent it where it is the most interesting for you.
No stress : Be free to organize your trip as you wishand leave your car at the airport with no extra fee before you leave.
If you want to rent the most inexpensive car in Guadeloupe, there is no secret : book online and the earliest you can.
The earlier, the better ! Indeed, it leaves us time to organize our fleet and move the cars from an agency to another if we need to. If you decide to book upon arrival at the agency, you can do si but it is more risky. The vehicle you wish might be out of sale (especially during high season). Moreover prices will be higher.
If you book online, you will enjoy the best prices. Plus, you will not have to wait too long to get your car keys and you can be sure you will have the car you want.

Le Gosier is located on the East Part of Guadeloupe (Grande-Terre). It is one of the most famous city of the island where tourists like to come.
Is there anything better than going to the beach to rest after a great hike that led you to a waterfall ? That's what we thought... You will find several beaches next to Le Gosier. One of the most beautiful beaches of Guadeloupe is Datcha beach and Gosier Island.
If you are looking for peace and quiet, you can go to Gosier Island. It will only take you 5 minutes by boat from Anse Tabarin. If you are an experienced swimmer you can also swim there from Datcha Beach. It will take 20 minutes, don't forget your snorkel kit, it will be easier.
Otherwise, we suggest you go to Sainte-Anne or Saint-François well known for their beaches.
You will find in Gosier, the biggest Marina of Guadeloupe. You can take a walk there, it's a very nice place, especially for the sunset. Then you can go have a drink in one of the many bars there.
If you are with your family, your children will love to visit the Aquarium. Perfect for a rainy day.
