Getting Around

 

Tours, Private Hire and rentals are normally organised for our clients who visit Fiji thru Travel Fiji.

 

The local travel network in Fiji is extremely good. Regular flights connect Nadi and Suva on the main island and take 35-minutes. A much cheaper option (only F$12) and more scenic is to take the express bus along the Queens Highway which takes about 4-hours. Taxis around Nadi charge per run (F$8-10 from the airport to Town). There are half a dozen car hire companies with bases in Nadi and Suva. Car hire costs about F$100 per day for an economy car all inclusive. Two local airlines serve 13 island airports from either Nadi or Suva. 

 

Flights to the tourist destinations run on a daily basis. Flights are from F$400 return from Nadi to the Northern Islands and F$300 return from Nadi to the Southern Islands. The resort islands of Mana and Malolo Lailai in the Mamanucas are visited each about a dozen times a day with the 10-minute flights costing from F$80 return. Two sea-plane companies and a helicopter company offer transfers throughout the group. Fast passenger ferries connect Nadi with the Mamanuca Group (several runs per day from 9am to 4pm) and Yasawa Group (daily service). There's a daily service also to Vanua Levu and Ovalau and a fortnightly ferry service to the Northern Islands and Southern Islands. Cargo boats visit the outer islands on a irregular service, sometimes just one a month, but take passengers on deck or in air-conditioned cabins.

 

Bus Bus services come in three categories and are priced accordingly. The local buses with open windows and padded seats provide a regular, cheap service to all parts of Fiji. They stop where required and can be waved down. Express buses only stop at designated areas and towns. They depart from the bus terminals in each town and from bus shelters along the way. Air-conditioned coaches run between Nadi and Suva along the Coral Coast to a twice daily schedule, with pick-up and drop-offs at hotels and resorts.

Petrol Stations

Service stations and petrol pumps are located throughout Fiji including BP, Shell and Mobil. Credit cards are not generally accepted so cash is usually required.

 

Taxis

Taxis are inexpensive and plentiful. Negotiate the price prior to the journey. Your hotel will be able to give you a rough cost estimate for the journey. Taxis wait at taxi stands or can be flagged down. If you require a taxi to wait for you, the charge will be minimal. Make sure you have small change as the taxis carry very little.
