We recommend guests rent a car in order to make the most of their time in Turks and Caicos. This can be collected on arrival at the airport or arrangements can be made for the car to be delivered to the villa. Taxi vans are in good supply at the airport and hold large groups and luggage.
Most of the major car hire companies are represented on island; we particularly recommend Grace Bay Car Rentals for their reliability and smiling service, if maybe not the deluxe quality of their cars – guests at Reef Tides are entitled to a 10% discount off the rental rate.
We will provide driving directions for you or your taxi driver upon booking.
Finding your way around Provo is very easy as there is one central highway that crosses the island. It takes no more than 30 minutes to drive from one end to the other. Car hire firms will provide a simple map pinpointing beaches, restaurants, shops etc. which is all you need. You drive on the left in Turks & Caicos.
Most activities and excursions that you arrange will offer a pick-up service but having a car gives you more freedom to enjoy island adventures, find secluded beaches, pop out to the supermarket and visit some of the excellent eateries on island.
