Getting around

E.T. Joshua Airport in St. Vincent is a short drive from the Capital, Kingstown. Taxis are available outside of the arrivals hall and taxi fares are set by government to various areas. Agree the appropriate fare with the taxi driver before setting out on your journey. When leaving any of the islands allow plenty of time to get to the airport.

If you plan to rent a car in St. Vinicent, be aware you will be driving on the left. The only islands in the Caribbean where you drive on the right are Aruba, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Martinique, and the Netherlands Antilles.

Taxi service is available on the island. Although metered rates vary, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles and scooters are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.

You can use your home driver’s license but you'll need to purchase a temporary St. Vinicent driver's license for $20. Remember, when you take to the road, British rules apply, so keep to the left. Pedestrians should remember to look right before crossing streets.
