A taxi on the beachfront Queen Street on old Cockburn Town, Grand Turk.
Most taxis are larger vans and many are Ford E-Series vehicles. They can carry up to 7 passengers, and around 5 if there is a large amount of luggage.
Many taxis on Grand Turk speed excessively over the 20 MPH island-wide speed limit. Pedestrians have been killed in the country (including on Providenciales) as a result. If your taxi is speeding, simply ask that the driver remain within the speed limit. There's no need to speed as it's a small island and maintaining a safe speed will add only a few mintutes to your journey.
Although there are statutory fares for certain routes, such as from the airport, these may not be adhered to. However, there is a fare schedule for the Grand Turk Taxi Association which applies to it's members. You are advised to agree on your fare before setting off. It's important that you clarify if the fee stated is per passenger or total. Some taxis state a fee that is per passenger, and tourists are then surprised when the total is multiples of that.
Fares from the Cruise Center
