Getting Around

Caribbean vacations offer travelers a chance to experience a whole new way to get around. When you visit St. Kitts, you'll find plenty of new and exciting ways to explore. From bike rentals to mini buses, we have just about every means of transportation imaginable for land and sea adventures. Don't miss favorite island attractions like historic Romney Manor, Brimstone Hill Fortress, and St. George's Anglican Church. Tired of driving? Hop aboard the St. Kitts Scenic Railway or our famous ferry, connecting the twin islands of St. Kitts and Nevis, for two of the most memorable experiences you'll have in the Caribbean islands. 

HOW TO GET AROUND IN ST. KITTS:

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.
