Curaçao is easiest to explore by car. The island has multiple car rental services, but quality can differ a lot. That is why Chogogo has its own car rental service exclusively for our guests. By using Chogogo, you are ensuring yourself of a reliable car, good service and fair pricing.

Chogogo has 5 types of cars available:

Taking off with proper insurance

For your own peace of mind, you can opt for an all-risk insurance. In that case, you will be charged a daily ANG 12.50 to settle the deductible. The only things not insured are a flat tire or towing services when the battery is flat (from having kept the car lights on). If you opt out of this insurance, we ask that you pay a deposit of ANG 550 or authorise your credit card for US$ 300. Renters below the age of 23 are subject to a deposit of ANG 900. The deductible cannot be settled in that case.

Are you interested in renting a car? Please let us know by sending us with your booking number and your preferred car. We will then have it ready for you at arrival!
