Grenada taxi prices
Grenada taxi fares are set across the island. All your driver needs to know is your final destination and they should have a rate card with the set price handy. For example, to get from St. George to Grand Anse Valley, you can expect to pay $20 (€18). On the other hand, a longer journey from the airport to Annandale Waterfall would cost $32 (€29).
You can pay in US dollars or the local currency, East Caribbean dollars. When you get into a taxi, make sure you see the rate card so that you avoid unpleasant surprises and overcharging.

How to get a taxi in Grenada
There are taxis readily available around the island’s main tourism hubs, such as popular beaches and the main city centre. They tend to be minibuses but they don’t have a uniform colour. This is because they are run by privately owned taxi and tour companies. In more rural locations or late nights, it’ll be difficult to find a taxi, so booking in advance is recommended.
You can also call a local taxi number to request a pickup. Some of the more reliable providers you can call are the following:
Grenada Taxis: +1 (473) 417 5710
Selo’s Taxi: +1 (473) 444 3196
Amazing Grenada Taxis: +1 (473) 533 8405
Finally, if you staying at one of the major hotels, they will have a list of trusted taxis they recommend and they can even arrange a cab on your behalf.
