RENTAL CARS AND BUSES
Bermuda must be about the only place left in the world where visitors cannot rent automobiles. Why not? Tourist safety on unfamiliar, often narrow, winding, sharply twisting roads, is cited as the main reason. Another factor is Bermuda's very small physical size and fourth-largest population per square mile in the world (after Gibraltar, Hong Kong and Monaco). Buses and taxis are readily available for guests to get around the island. Bus tokens available at the Concierge Desk and Hotel Front Desk.
Taxis are available at the airport, hotel, City of Hamilton, and are available by calling the Bermuda Taxi Association at 441-296-2121. Taxi fare from Airport is approximately $60 USD, plus tip (1-4 persons) and is a 30 minute drive each way.
Direct shuttle service to and from airport can be arranged by making online reservations at CEO Transport
or by calling directly to 441-234-4366. Shared shuttle is $15 per person. Private transfers & island tours are also available. Rates subject to change without notice.
