Getting Around Jersey

Forget your 'nine to five' and explore our 'nine by five'

At just nine miles by five, it is easy to get around in Jersey. Bring your own vehicle, hire a car, make use of a great public transport network or cycle in the islands dedicated green lanes. Or make the most of the stunning scenery by getting around on foot.

Driving

In Jersey, we drive on the left. The island’s speed limit is set to 40 mph / 64 km per hour. If you’re planning to drive in Jersey, you’ll need to hold a Certificate of Insurance or an International Green Card, a valid Driving Licence or International Driving Permit (UK International Driving Permits are not valid). Photocopies are not acceptable. If you’re bringing over a vehicle for your event, you’ll need to display a nationality plate on the back of your vehicle.

Car Rental Options
Tours

Invite your delegates to sit back, relax and enjoy the view of Jersey’s coastal lanes and fishing villages with a coach tour from a modern fleet to beautifully restored open top vintage buses. With carefully chosen routes ranging from round-the-island tours to trips to attractions like Jersey War Tunnels or Jersey Zoo, getting there will be half the fun.

Public Transport

Jersey’s network of public transport enables your clients to navigate your way around the island with easy to use and regular services linking the island’s main locations with the central bus station at Liberation Station in St Helier, the island’s capital. Most buses have easy access for wheelchair users.

Catch the bus
Taxis

Taxi ranks are conveniently located outside the airport and the harbour; public taxis are meter controlled, and you’d expect to pay less than £20 for a fare between the airport and St. Helier. Different rate tariffs apply to both public rank taxis and booked cabs depending on the time and day and public holidays.

Book a taxi
Cycling

With a network of cycle routes that run beside the coast and along quiet country lanes, hire a bicycle and you’re free to explore. Our recommendation? Invite your clients to download a copy of our cycle map and plan a route, with a picnic stop along the way. Pack panniers with a picnic from La Belle Gourmande delicatessen in St Aubin or the Central Market in St Helier.

Just walk

That’s right. Jersey’s small on size, but rich in off-the-beaten-track locations, making it perfect to explore on foot. Easy to fit in after the 9-5, invite your delegates in their downtime to uncover a whole island’s worth of unique perspectives from tree-lined country lanes that open out to spectacular sea views, or finding hidden-away beaches and bays.
