Is a rental car a good idea or an unnecessary extra? Never been to Port Vila, so unsure if a car would be needed for the location. If you say not, would we be looking at taxi or bus?
Hi Paul, Most people get a car for a couple of days to go around the island and visit different places. A bus that picks you up from the resort and brings you into town cost 400vt p.p. a bus that you pick up from the road cost 200vt p.p. We are 10km out of town with a lot of attractions nearby so if you are satified with that than time enough to rent a car. Hope this answers your question.
Been and done it. Hired for a couple of days, so we could go where we wanted when we wanted, but otherwise did the taxi thing. Thanks one and all for your replies.
Plenty taxis' are available but can be uncomfortable. If u plan trip around island definitely get hire car.
Thank you one and all. Since all the answers are the same, it's an easy decision. Most of the time I plan to be doing not much anyway. I appreciate you all taking the time out to answer.
We travel to Port Vila at least once a year if not twice and we never hire a car. Much easier to get taxi they are cheap and friendly. negotiate a price for driver for the day even and they will take you anywhere. Enjoy
