British Virgin Islands Transportation

  • entering the BVI from the USVI

    If you're visiting the US Virgin Islands and would like to stop by the British Virgin Islands, there are ferries from St. Thomas and St. John to Tortola. You must go through customs/immigration to enter. Make sure and bring a valid passport.

  • DEPARTURE TAX

    When leaving the BVI you have to pay departure tax. When leaving by plane the departure tax is 20$. When leaving by ferry you only have to pay 5$. You have to pay it in cash so don't forget to keep a few dollars for it!

  • FERRIES

    Ferries are a great way to get from one island to the other. We took a lot of them during our stay and loved it. You are basically among locals, you get to see the beautiful islands from the water side and they are fast and reliable. And sometimes they even leave on time ;)Here are your options:Ferries from Road Town, Tortola go to - Peter Island...

  • DRIVING ON THE BVI

    Once you get to the BVI you will be surprise that hardly anybody drives a normal car. I have never seen a place that is full of Jeeps in all brands, colours and sizes. Once you get into the hilly roads of Tortola or Jost van Dyke you will understand why. A 4 wheel drive is necessary to tackle steep dirt roads. The BVI (and the USVI) are the only...

  • HOW TO GET AROUND ON THE BVI

    There is no public transportation available on any of the British Virgin Islands. Locals use their cars or hitchhike. Tourists rent a car or take taxis. What we did was a bit of both:On Tortola we rented a small jeep for the whole time from D&D Car Rental. It was a plasticy jeep without a lot of power but it brought us around the islands and up and...

  • HOW TO GET TO THE BVI

    We chose a bit of a complicated way of getting to the BVI in order to avoid small planes and in order to combine our stay here with a few days in New York City. We flew Contintental from Frankfurt to Newark, the next day we continued from Newark to St. Thomas and one day later we took the ferry from St. Thomas to Tortola. We would have probably...

  • They drive on the left!

    It is highly important to note that, while the cars are the same as in America with the steering wheel on the left, that all cars drive on the left side of the road instead of the right. It takes a lot of getting used to, and usually if you rent a car, they will send someone with you to give you a crash course on driving this way. Also, roads are...

  • Beef Island Airport

    Beef Island International Airport is the entryway to the BVI if flying. The island is just east of Tortola and is connected by bridge. You can take a taxi to Tortola rather cheaply. Travel time approx. 30 minutes.Most flights to BVI are from San Juan, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

  • Airport

    Little Beef Island Airport can only handle commuter size planes so we changed planes in San Juan, Puerto Rica.Flew from there on American Eagle for the 20 minute flight.

  • Your private plane!

    I love these tiny planes, where you can see every light and every button, take loads of pictures and never even get a drink served :-)Just remember that everything "works on caribbean time" here...

  • Jerry's Car Rentals

    Jerry's Car Rentals worked out a really good deal with us for a full-sized Montero for $600 for 12 days! Insurance was only an additional $100. I would highly recommend him for a rental car while on Tortola.
