Rates, Fares, and Fees

Although cab fares on Anguilla are based on set rates, and the official fares are published in annual tourist guides, cab fares are unmetered. Therefore, it is wise to confirm the price of the ride with the driver before setting out on your journey. If you're traveling with a lot of luggage or need to make additional stops, inquire about additional charges. There is generally a $0.50(USD) surcharge per bag for more than two bags. Passengers must pay the cab fare in cash. Both U.S. dollars and Eastern Caribbean dollars are acceptable forms of payment. Two-hour island tours start at about $40(USD) for one or two people, with an additional $5(USD) charge for each additional passenger up to a maximum of six people.

The following charts show some of the average fares from several destinations around the island, including the airport and popular accommodations. Traveling in the island's more remote locations may incur extra costs.

If getting around Anguilla by taxi is not your first option for transportation, there are plenty of other options out there. Most people, especially families vacationing on the island, end up renting a car during their stay. This is without question the most efficient method if you feel confident navigating unfamiliar roads on your own. Catching a bus is unfortunately not an option, though large parties certainly have the opportunity to hire a small bus to drive them around. If you are traveling solo or with another adult, you may want to take the time to consider getting around by bike or moped. Learn how to do so by clicking here.

Traveling by taxi is a popular way to traverse this tropical island. Hailing a cab is just as easy as finding one, so leave the driving to someone else as you enjoy the beauty and adventure of Anguilla.
