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. 

What our customers say about Welcome

"Anabelia, our tour guide was wonderful. She guided us through history and food and made great suggestions and enabled us to understand Greek culture and the food. I would highly recommend this tour.”

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.

Why book a Grenada private transfer in advance?

Although there are many Grenada taxi services on the island, the place can get very busy with tourists during peak times. So the wait can be long. If you want efficient friendly service with zero wait times, no matter where you are on this beautiful island, we suggest booking your Grenada taxi in advance with Welcome Pickups. We offer personalised transfers in clean, comfortable vehicles at reasonable rates. With us, you can rest assured your transportation is taken care of, so you can focus on basking in the Grenada sun and enjoying your island holiday.

Grenada taxi tips

  1. You can pay in East Caribbean Dollars (XCD) or US Dollars (USD). However, it works out cheaper to pay in XCD.
  2. Taxis in Grenada don’t carry card machines so bring cash with you to pay for your journey.
  3. If you like your taxi driver, it’s perfectly fine to ask for their number to use them throughout your stay.
  4. It’s customary to tip your driver 10% in Grenada.

Wheelchair-accessible taxis in Grenada

Most taxis in Grenada are minibus-size which many wheelchair users report as adequate for their travel. These taxis have a good amount of storage space too. However, the local taxis in Grenada aren’t fully wheelchair equipped as standard. If you have accessibility requirements, we recommend booking a private transfer in advance to ensure your needs are catered for.

Grenada taxi safety and complaints

Grenada is known for being one of the safest and most welcoming islands in the Caribbean. Their local taxi drivers are no different. However, some may try to overcharge you as a tourist if they suspect you don’t know about the set rate fares. To avoid this, speak to your driver about the cost of the fare before you travel.

If you have any issues with taxi drivers during your adventure in Grenada, you can contact the local police switchboard at +1 (473) 444 1958. Take note of the taxi’s license plate details to aid your complaint.

Frequently asked questions

What currency can I use to pay for my Grenada taxi?

You can pay for your taxi in Grenada in East Caribbean dollars or US dollars. You can even split the currencies if you don’t have enough to pay in only one currency (however this is at the driver’s discretion). For most Grenada taxis, you can only pay in cash, so we advise bringing cash with you on your taxi journeys. The driver may give you change in either currency.

How do I call a taxi in Grenada?

If you’re in St. George’s city centre or another tourist hub on the island, you can hail a taxi from the street. Just ensure the driver has a visible ID number and a rate card for the set fares available. 

Alternatively, you can call a Grenada taxi service 24/7 – using a taxi number like Grenada Taxis (+1 (473) 417 5710) or Selo’s Taxi (+1 (473) 444 3196).

How do Grenada taxi drivers calculate their fares?

Grenada taxi rates are set across the island and depend on your start and end locations. The longer the journey, the higher the cost. For example, a taxi from Grenada Airport to St. George’s city centre should cost €8.50 (XCD 25) or $10 (€9). You can also hire a taxi for $30 (€27) an hour if you’d like to make several stops. If you’d like the peace of mind of knowing your fare upfront, you can book your Grenada taxi in advance with a trusted company like Welcome.
