Thanks to the fact that large commercial airlines like Jet Blue and British Airways land here regularly, tourists can breathe easy knowing there is likely a flight available that fits into their schedule.

Next Stop, Somerset Village

Ground transportation between the airport and Somerset Village is limited to taxis and thanks to the fact that rental cars are banned on the island. Additionally, buses are not necessarily recommended when you're traveling with luggage. Still, they are possible to use and typically cost less than $5(USD) per person depending on the route you take. The taxi ride will cost less than $60(USD), and as previously mentioned, will take about 45 minutes.

Convenient to many of Bermuda's most desired tourist attractions, the town of Somerset Village itself remains small and underdeveloped, making it one of the best places for visitors hoping to get away from busy cities but still remain within arm's reach of everything they need. Flying to the island is going to be the most convenient mode of transportation, even when you consider the drive that lies in wait.
