- Trinidad & Tobago
- Travel info
It is advisable to reserve a rental vehicle before arriving in Trinidad and Tobago, particularly during the busy Christmas and Carnival seasons. The road network in both islands is relatively well developed, on the other hand, roads in some rural areas may be narrow and winding. Given that Trinidad and Tobago is an old British colony, it is important to note that cars drive on the left-hand side of the road.
Visitors holding valid driving permits issued from other countries are permitted to drive for up to 3 months without a Trinidad and Tobago issued driver's licence.
BUS AND TAXI
Public Transport Service Corporation (PTSC) is the sole-operator of Trinidad and Tobago’s commercial bus transportation. These buses can take you from one end of the island to another within a day. Another option can be the inexpensive and fixed route maxi taxis/minibuses designated by colour and have set prices for the route that they cover.
Private taxis are also available and generally found at major hotels. Fares are not metered and should be confirmed before departure. All licensed taxis are designated by "H" on the license plate.
PLANE AND FERRY
Caribbean Airlines is Trinidad and Tobago’s national airline that offers daily flights between Trinidad and Tobago. These flights costs US $48.00 return with a duration time of 24 minutes between islands.
To complement the national airline, there is an inter-island ferry service that provides a high speed ferry that takes 2 to 3 ½ hours between the two main ports of Port of Spain and Scarborough at a cost of US $15.00 return.
