Renting a car during your stay in the Cayman Islands provides the most flexibility when it comes to transportation. There are also several reputable rental car companies available, allowing you to pick up your vehicle at the airport or at several locations around the islands. Visitors can get a temporary divers license at any rental car counter or at the police station. Visitors applying for a temporary driver’s license in the Cayman Islands for the purposes of renting a car must be 21 years of age. Driving on the left side of the road provides adventure and round-a-bouts provide good stories to tell when you return home.
Car rentals available include Jeeps, Mini Vans, 4 doors, and SUV’s. Renting mopeds and scooters are also a great way to explore the islands on your own.
There are several public buses that run throughout the different districts. The bus terminal is on Edward Street, adjacent to the Public Library, in George Town. Daily services commence around 6 am and fares start at CI$2. Licensed buses have blue number plates and accept both US and Cayman Islands dollars. There are a few bus stops around the island, but buses can be flagged down from the side of the road. You’ll find a few public bus stops in the busier districts too.
