  • Ferry from Port of Spain to Scarborough

    If you take the Ferry from Port of Spain to Scarborough and plan on returning, buy a return ticket when you leave Port of Spain. Scarborough ferry terminal is poorly run and choatic. The employees make up their own rules. If you do get stranded, flights from Tobago to Trinidad are cheaper than you would expect.

  • Sherman's Auto Rentals, Tobago

    After bad experiences with car rental companies in Port of Spain (see my comments on Econo Car Rental and Southern Sales) we had a positive surprise on Tobago with Sherman. I made reservations from home by email within one evening. They answered my emails within less than an hour! When we landed at Crown Point on Tobago the car was ready, clean and...

  • 4WD Car Rentals

    Best way to get around in Tobago is by rental car.Rental cars are cheap to rent. (40 - 60 dollars a day.)We asked for a day andpaid for that day only. And they came to pick up the car 4 days later.(They didn't hire itso they didn't need it....the caribbean way.)And filling up the car is a relief, as it was about 0,35 eurocents for a liter of gas...

  • Rental car in Tobago

    Roads are in fairly good condition and for the most part drivers are surprisingly cautious of oncoming traffic. Blind curves can make for a harrowing journey at times, but getting around the island would be much more difficult without a car. It was well worth the $265/8 days. Rocky's Rentals out of Crown Point was terrific, meeting us at the ferry...

    A rental car is essential, when staying in Tobago. Many hotels and villas are in quite isolated areas and a rental car gives you freedom to go wherever and whenever you want so that you don't allways have to rely on taxis.

    Everybody does it, the locals I mean. They stand on the side of the road and indicate with their thump the direction they wish to go from the next junction. It is a good way of getting around for them and doesn't cost much.But as a tourist, you should be careful. The locals know each other, but you don't. You have no way of knowing who you're...

    Taxis are a good way to get around in Tobago if you're not willing to learn using the local transportation system, which can be complicated to understand. Generally taxis are reliable (not the cars exatcly...or at least they don't allways look so reliable), but do ask the price beforehand. Taxis cost about 60 TT for a journey from Crown Point to...

  • Cabs in Tobago

    There are two ways to get around Tobago. One, take a cab driven by a certified cab driver. They wear blue uniforms if I remember right. The cabs are also not very cheap. Two, stick your hand out on any road and catch a ride with someone. It's sounds strange, but it is quite safe and really cheap. It is also very much the custom in Tobago. My...

For instance a cab from Maraval to Maracas Bay would run you $25US but if you stand on the side of Saddle Road and wait for the white van with the yellow striping, you can get there for $1US.

Private taxis (for single...

    There are several options, but take a Maxi Taxi if you get a chance. Head to the depot at Port of Spain during rush hour and you will be faced with a scene!
