Bermuda has one airport, L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA), and is currently served by seven airlines.
Cruise ships from Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Royal Caribbean regularly dock at one of three ports of call in Bermuda: King’s Wharf/Heritage Wharf, Hamilton Harbour, and St. Georg’es Port. In addition, buses, bikes, ferries, scooters, taxis, rental cars, tour groups, and drivers for hire are available.
Transportation on the island
Busses (must have exact change or buy a pass for unlimited use) & ferries
Bermuda requires roundtrip tickets (“proof of onward transportation”) if arriving on the island by air; so no one-way tickets.
No visas are required for tourists, those in visiting for business, or those with work permit holders.
Bermuda’s dollar is equal in value to the US dollar (1=1).
Busses can be the most economical transportation on the island. Save money by buying a one-, three-, or seven-day transportation pass. Schedules can be on “island time,” so pack your patience when waiting at a bus stop. It’s super cheap, not super punctual.
