The most convenient transportation is the private taxi – rates are XCD 160.00 from RVA to Kingstown, XCD 220.00 to the airport and XCD 230.00 to town, letting the taxi wait while you do errands and return. Taxis are available any time – RVA has an updated list of available taxi drivers. Varying reliability regarding time, but good track record with airport runs.

The second most convenient is a taxi where you pay for a seat – XCD 10.00 from Chateaubelair or XCD 15.00 from RVA. There are only a few of these leaving from Chateaubelair, but as a team you can book a van to pick you up; here you would agree a special rate.

The third way is the van, filled to the brim and often with very loud music. Here you pay XCD 6.00. There are plenty of vans leaving from early morning until 3pm and going back as well; when going to town it is best to leave early in the morning having organized pick up with the public system.

With the last two options you need to agree with the driver to take you to the driveway of RVA. It is usually possible if you pay double, meaning XCD 10.00 more with the private taxi or XCD 6.00 more with the van.
