It is advisable to reserve a rental vehicle before arriving in Trinidad, particularly during the busy Christmas and Carnival seasons.

The road network is relatively well developed, but roads in some rural areas may be narrow and winding. Given that Trinidad and Tobago is an old British colony, driving is on the left-hand side of the road. Vehicles are generally right-hand drive but there are some that are ‘left-hand’ drive.

Visitors holding valid driving permits issued from other countries are permitted to drive for up to 3 months without a Trinidad and Tobago issued driver’s permit.

There are “authorized taxis” from the airport to your destination, the taxi tariff is displayed in the ‘Arrivals’ area. Private taxis are also available and generally found at major hotels. Fares are not metered and should be confirmed before departure. All licensed taxis are designated by “H” on the license plate. Taxis can also be hired from registered Taxi Associations.

The Public Transport Service Corporation (PTSC) is the sole operator of commercial bus transportation. Another option can be the inexpensive and fixed-route maxi taxis/minibuses designated by colour and have set prices for the route that they cover.


Cruise ships call at the Port of Port-of-Spain in Trinidad. Over the years there has been an increase in the number of luxurious cruise ships that have added Trinidad to their itineraries.

There is a variety of onshore activities and tours to be enjoyed both in and beyond the City of Port-of-Spain.

For the best experience, cruise visitors are advised to book with registered tour operators and guides.
