Turks and Caicos Taxis

Private car service at a luxury villa at Long Bay
Luxury private car service in the Turks and Caicos.

In the Turks and Caicos, there are two types of transport that could be loosely defined as a “taxi”, with available services ranging from conventional taxi vans to private car services.

Private Car Service

Private car services are a popular and luxurious way of getting around, and are typically upscale and newer SUVs, such as the Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, Land Rover Range Rover, GMC Yukon, or the Toyota Sequoia.

Airport Transfers

Although they may initially appear expensive, a private car service can actually be a decent value in many situations due to the fact that their fares are per car, and not per person like most conventional taxis. For groups of 4-6, it may actually be less expensive for the car service. This is especially the case for transfers from the Providenciales International Airport (PLS).

Another consideration is wait times. Taxi trips originating from the airport are typically shared, and there may be a wait before departing. A luxury car service is private, and drivers will meet guests directly outside of the arrivals gate for a speedy departure, which saves time.

What’s most commonly referred to as a taxi in the Turks and Caicos is typically a large passenger van, with rates that are usually charged per person. Rides may be shared, especially for journeys originating at the Providenciales International Airport (PLS). However, for tourists who want to avoid a queue and longer journey time (due to multiple stops with a shared taxi), arranging a private taxi is also available, although the cost is higher.

It's important to note that children under two years of age are free, whereas any children age two and up and charged the full adult fare.

Taxi service is available on Providenciales, Grand Turk, and North and Middle Caicos. Rates are considered by most to be quite expensive, and for two persons traveling from the Providenciales airport to a hotel or resort in Grace Bay, the charge should be around $30, yet drivers may demand more.

Taxis are typically large passenger vans, such as the Ford E-Series or Chevrolet Express vans, which are capable of seating anywhere from 9-15 people.

The Turks and Caicos Government sets fare limits for most taxi journeys. Sometimes, these limits are exceeded, so it’s best to confirm with your taxi what the total will be for your journey (including all passengers) before departing.

Taxi fares operate in that the first two people each pay the full fare (examples shown below), and additional persons pay a half fare.

Pre-booked Fares: Pre-booked taxis are not subject to the following fares. The table below is only applicable to persons waiting in the taxi queue at the airport taking a shared taxi shuttle to their hotel. If you pre-book a taxi, the fares will be higher and are negotiated between you and the taxi company.

Taxi Queues

Taxis may be scheduled in advance for a specific location, or can often be found waiting in queues at some specific locations throughout the Turks and Caicos.

On Providenciales, taxis can usually be found waiting at the Providenciales International Airport, at some resorts, and at the Graceway Gourmet and Graceway IGA supermarkets.

On Grand Turk, some taxis are usually waiting at the Grand Turk JAGS McCartney International Airport (GDT) and at the Grand Turk Cruise Center.

For North Caicos, there may be a limited number of taxis at the Sandy Point Marina, where the North Caicos Ferry lands.
