How to Go to Bermuda and not Go Broke
Is it possible to visit Bermuda on a budget? Oh yes, it is! It is an exotic, beautiful island paradise, but it’s also one of the cheapest one out there in the Caribbean.
But if you still feel like the prices are a bit too steep for your taste, here are tips on how you can get yourself on this wonderful paradise and not go broke.
- Arrive via cruise ship – Airfare costs usually around $700-800 in high seasons but it can go low to $250 during the off-season. Arriving on a cruise ship is the most common and the least expensive way to go to Bermuda. It takes about two days at sea to get to Bermuda from the US.
- Always be on the lookout for sales in accommodations – Bermuda has been running specials that give you 1 or 2 nights free if you stay a certain number of nights. You can also go for Airbnb. If you’re on the adventurous side, you can choose camping as it is permitted on certain sites.
- Going around the island? Rent a scooter – There’s no car rental service on the island, but you can rent a scooter. Most of them charge for about $60 per day and gas is about $9.90 per gallon. The more days you rent a scooter, the greater the deal is. Hence, you can always take the bus if you’re not very comfortable driving.
- When it comes to food, go for local food, gas stations, and supermarkets – Surprisingly, the best food in Bermuda can be found in gas stations. These small food markets are generally cheaper than restaurants, made fresh, and delicious. Don’t be afraid to try local delicacies. This will make your trip a lot more exciting.
- Lastly, bring your gear – By bringing your own diving and snorkeling gear, you don’t need to rent anymore. That’s a couple of bucks saved in your wallet.
