How much will a taxi cost?

All taxis in Bermuda have meters with rates set by the government. Standard fares are:

  • 1 – 4 persons, $5.15 initial charge, $2.75 per mile
  • 5 – 7 persons, $6.45 initial charge, $3.50 per mile

Rates are 25 percent higher on between midnight and 6 am and on Sundays and public holidays (50% for 5 – 7 persons).

A $1 surcharge is also added for each large item of baggage. A 15% tip is appropriate.

At peak times (e.g. Friday and Saturday evenings) and for critical trips (e.g. a trip to the airport) we’d strongly recommend booking a taxi in advance. A list of dispatching companies can be found here. If you’re staying in a hotel or guest house they’ll probably have a preferred, reliable driver they can call on your behalf.

Comments and Additional Information

  1. What is the taxi fare from King’s Wharf to Elbow Beach?

  2. What is the approximate cost of taxi from the airport to the Fairmont Southampton? There will be 3 passengers and 4 pieces of luggage. We arrive on a Tuesday afternoon.
    Thank you, Bob Mc Kenna

    • The cost should be about $37 ($33 for the ride plus $1 for each suitcase).
