Turks and Caicos Islands Transportation

  • Arrival Via Cruise Ship

    Grand Turk is the only island of the Turks and Caicos that is a cruise port. My wife and I have taken several cruise ships that have docked in Grand Turk. Princess Cruise Lines, Carnival and occasionally Royal Caribbean sail to Grand Turk. The port at Grand Turk is a nice shopping and recreation area with plenty of water sports. To us Grand Turk is...

  • Take Advantage of Free Hotel Transport

    One of the many benefits of staying at Beaches in Provo is the free transportation to and from the airport. The ride is a short 15 minutes and in an airconditioned van.

  • Taxis

    Taxis can be pricey if you let the hotel do the arranging. We learned this after we had paid $60 to get to the Conch Festival. Call the taxi yourself and negotiate a price.....you find it's much cheaper.

  • Providenciales International Airport...

    The Providenciales Airport is quite small but provides several direct flights to Provo from the states. American Airlines, British Airways and Air Jamaica are big carriers that fly into Provo. AA has two to three flights a day to Provo.The airport itself is pretty well organized and we didn't have any problems checking in for our flight. Retrieving...

  • AA to Provo

    American airlines flies from JFK directly to Provo. Whenever we fly to Provo it is out of JFK. There is usually a 6:50am flight which gets us to Provo early enough to enjoy the day. The flight is a little under three hours with no problems. With such a short flight; time flies by quickly while I read my kindle and Liz reads one of her magazines.

  • Don't count on taxi drivers

    Taxi drivers are often heard saying "I'll come back, just tell me when" etc. It might work some places, but not here. Don't rely on their word--if a better client comes along, believe me they'll take it! This is important if you're cruising, take a taxi away from port and need to get back on time. Just plan on being near somewhere that can call a...

  • The Diner's Express

    The Ocean Club (and perhaps other resorts on the island??) have a nightly Diner's Express, which goes to and from all the island's restaurants. Ours was a pleasant man with a large and air-conditioned van. Using this, with a cost of about $8 round-trip, means there is no need at all for a car on the island. Not only to dive shops offer...

  • Inter-Island Travel

    I recently had someone contact me regarding how to get to the different islands in TCI. Salt Cay, Grand Turk, Provo, North & South Caicos...etc. depending on where your staying. I knew there was an airline that traveled from the different islands, but other than contacting the front desk of the hotel for info I didn't know much about it. Thus I...

  • So you want to see the sites?

    The Turks & Caico's islands are fairly small and basically undeveloped. Please don't rent a car....the road's are unpaved and bumpy, if you can even call them roads. More like paths to me. Your best best in getting around Provo is to rent a Moped. You can arrange to rent a moped at your hotel's main desk and expect to spend $40.00 per day. But...

  • Inter-Island Travel

    The main goal of my trip was to dive. For that reason, I just made a stopover in Provo. On the way to Grand Turk from Provo, I hopped aboard Sky King. Their planes are small, which I expected. I just wish they would have told me to check my carry on. I had to duck to get in to the cabin, and there was no place to store my small backpack under the...

  • Shuttle Service

    There is a shuttle service that hits various shopping areas around the island of Providentiales. It is named after some kind of lizard and hits the Marina, a few shopping areas and hotels on a hit and miss basis. There are signs with lizards on them to signify a shuttle stop. $3 a ride or an all day pass for around $11.

  • Take flight over the islands

    We flew from North Caicos to Providenciales and the views were amazing. You see the islands from a completely different perspective than you do when travelling by boat. The flight was $40.00 each but easily worth it for the views. We flew with Air Turks and Caicos.
