Getting Around Nevis
Getting around Nevis is pretty simple. There’s not much traffic, no bridges or tunnels, not even a single traffic light. There is a main road that takes you around the entire island with slight diversions along the way to explore sites, attractions and the local villages. There are a few car rental agencies that have jeeps, sedans and mini vans available for your selection. Most rental agencies arrange pickup and drop off at the airports, hotels and ferry terminal if you are arriving via St. Kitts.
To be allowed to drive in Nevis, one must have a valid driver’s license and obtain a special driver’s permit from any of the island police stations. This is necessary even if you have an international driver’s license. The permit costs $62.50XCD (US $24) and expires in 90 days. Most rental agencies can also issue this permit on site at time of pickup.
As guests of the Yellow Cabin, you can enjoy the convenience of having a car rental available at the property on your arrival. Our host will take care of all the paperwork, ensuring your license is issued and guaranteeing you a reliable vehicle at 20% off the daily rate. This is exclusive only to Yellow Cabin guests. We will also arrange your pickup upon arrival to Nevis and transport you to the Cabin were your vehicle awaits..
Keep In Mind . . . .
It is important to remember that during the Culturama Festival (late July to early August) and during the Christmas season, there is a higher demand for rental vehicles. So it is recommended that you reserve your car rental early.
