Getting around: Fiji transfers and car hire

The best ways to island hop around Fiji.

Getting around Fiji is budget-friendly and can be done easily.

On the main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu transportation is common and affordable and as such, walking is not a common form of transport.

Below we share all the ways that you can get around the mainland as well as from island to island cheaply.

Fiji public transport

Types of transport: Buses can be hailed from the side of the street, carriers, which are trucks that depart when full, minivans, taxis.

Paying for transport: All transport in Fiji is paid for in cash unless booked in advance where credit cards may be accepted.

Taxis and Uber

Taxi: Yellow taxis are available at the airport with prices ranging from $15 to $50 depending on where you are heading on the island. They can also be flagged down on the street. Private transfers can be prebooked. Uber: Uber is currently unavailable in Fiji but taxis are available and affordable.
