Island Arrivals

Wouldn't you really rather be sitting by your pool?
Wouldn’t you really rather be sitting by your pool?

When you land on an island, which is usually much smaller than many cities, you may be surprised to discover that with twisting, winding roads, traffic and speed limits, it can take up to 1 hour to travel the equivalent of  approximately 12 miles! We know that after a long day’s travel, the last thing you want to do is zig-zag all over the island to connect with your rental car and move on to your villa.

This is why we always recommend that our guests pay close attention to villa location in comparison to arrival port and car rental pickup and drop-off. Please bear in mind, your car rental agency may not be located at your arrival port! It is best to not book your rental car until you have confirmed your arrival and departure – then be sure to select an agency that is most convenient for you.
