Getting around St Kitts And Nevis
A good road network on both islands makes any area accessible within minutes.
Extra care must be taken at night as roads are not well lit.
Car/moped hire: A selection of cars and mopeds can be hired from several companies. It is best to book cars through the airline well in advance. When hiring scooters safety equipment is not included in the price; those hiring these must bear this in mind as other road users do not usually give scooters due consideration.
Taxi: Services on both islands have set rates. A schedule of taxi rates is obtainable at the government headquarters. There is a 50% surcharge between 2200-0600. Taxi drivers expect a 10% tip.
Documentation: Before driving any vehicle, including motorcycles, a local Temporary Driver's Licence must be obtained from the Police Traffic Department. This is readily issued on presentation of an International Driving Permit or national driving licence and a fee.
