Getting Around

Not a single traffic light. We don’t need them on St. Kitts. We just don’t have much traffic. But we do have just about every means of transportation imaginable for land and sea travel. Plus our famous ferry services connecting our twin islands.


If you prefer to maintain your independence and explore St. Kitts on your own, simply rent a vehicle of your choice from any of the companies listed below. Vehicles range from luxury cars and vans to SUVs and motorbikes. When making your reservation, ask about the convenient airport pick-up.

Please Note: It is necessary to obtain a driver’s permit before you are allowed to drive in St. Kitts, even if you have an international driver’s license. The permit costs $62.50 XCD (US $24) for three months or $125.00 XCD (US $45) for one year. It can be obtained from the Traffic Department, or facilitated through the rental agency. Remember that in St. Kitts, we drive on the left hand side of the road. While driving around our island, kindly adhere to the speed limits, abide by all other local traffic laws, and remember never to drink and drive. We want you to enjoy your vacation safely and responsibly. Also, seatbelt use is mandatory. Ask your car rental agency about including a child seat, should you require one.
