Rental Cars

For most visitors coming to Grenada, you have to remember that in Grenada they drive on the left side of the road (opposite of the United States and many other countries) and the traffic can be rather tricky compared to what most people are used to. If you feel you have no problem handling this and want to see the island of Grenada on your own accord, a rental car may be a good idea.

Rental car rates are typically between 50-80 USD per day.  In order to rent a car in Grenada, you must first secure a Grenadian driving permit, which you can get by going to the police station and showing them your current driver’s license.  The police station is located on The Carenage which is in St Georges. The cost for your Grenadian driving permit is $60 EC.  Some rental companies can provide drivers with a local permit as part of their service, so be sure to check into this before making the trip to the police station.

Public Transportation

Public Transit around the Southwestern part of Grenada is actually very good. The bus system runs regularly and there are many of them. By bus, we mean passenger vans, most of which are “colorful” in a wide variety of ways, you can’t miss them most of the time. It’s a great way to get a feel for the local vibe as the people of Grenada are very friendly. Each bus has zone stickers that are placed in the front window of each bus. Every bus has a manager at the door. The manager manages the passengers and their fares leaving the driver to focus on driving only. If you have any questions, ask the manager. The buses run from 6am until 9pm from Monday-Saturday, so be aware that if you plan to go out on the town and have drinks past 9pm, you will need a taxi to get back to your “home location” while you’re in Grenada. The bus fares usually range from $3-8EC.
