morning all, looking forward to upcoming holiday to Antigua
Enquiring as to the cost of a transfer from airport to Jolly Harbour
The rate's $US24 each way for a party of up to four travelling together. You may find yourself sharing with others heading for nearby destinations, and this has no impact on the cost.
That rate is to the commercial centre - if you want to go all the way to your villa, it's usually an extra $3.
Our taxi was shared but each family paid the rate which is at the airport.....if you are prepared to drive hire a car in the UK from the airport, it's the same side as here......we travelled in May and had we realised 1 days car hire was 15 US we would have taken a car for the week. We ended up hiring a car at the hotel for 50 US due to the huge cost of the excursions so therefore it would have been cheaper to have a car from the airport...petrol cheap....signs confusing but the locals are lovely lovely people and were always willing to point us in the right direction.......
I wish I could find anywhere offering hire cars for $15 per day. That's normally the cost of the daily CDW and less than a local licence!
Me too, Mizgeorge! Never found anything that cheap!
Whoever told you that a car hire is $15 is sadly mistaken. I've never known any car hire company in Antigua (and you can believe I've checked them all!) to rent a car for anything less than $40 US daily. On top of that is the cost for a local drivers permit ($20 US) plus insurance (usually $10 US daily), and of course you have to pay gas. You will get rates cheaper the longer you book, but certainly NOT for $15 US per day.
