With adventures for every season and fun experiences all year long, Bermuda is always a great place to get away.
Fly to Bermuda for the ultimate island experience. Many first-time visitors are surprised to learn that Bermuda is a 90-minute non-stop flight from NYC, less than a 3-hour flight from most U.S. East Coast travel hubs and a 7-hour flight from London.
Wondering what to pack for your island getaway? Think Britain-meets-the-beach. Bermuda has an air of modesty mixed with a casual island vibe, making for a fab opportunity to break out those Bermuda shorts.
Legal tender on the island is the Bermuda Dollar, which trades at the same rate as the U.S. dollar and carries the same symbol ($).
Bermuda and the U.S. Dollar are accepted interchangeably. When dispensing change, most retailers and businesses will try to provide change in U.S. dollars to visitors.
ATMs are widely available. Find 24-hour ATMs at HSBC Bermuda, Butterfield Bank and Clarien Limited. Check convenience stores, gas stations or your hotel for the ATM nearest you. Most ATMs dispense only Bermuda dollars. HSBC Bermuda does offer US Cash ATM's at their branch locations.
Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards are accepted almost everywhere.
Getting around in Bermuda is easy. There are many different modes of transportation available even though rental cars are not. Whether your style is zipping around town on a scooter, pedaling from Point A to Point B, taking a convenient bus or taxi ride or hopping aboard a ferry, you'll find several convenient ways to see the island.
Before embarking on your island getaway, be sure you've got the two required documents:
You'll need a round-trip ticket to travel to Bermuda. All visitors, including children and infants, are required to have a return or onward ticket, i.e., a round-trip ticket, or other proof of onward transportation to a country to which the passenger has right of entry.
Valid, Machine-Readable Passport
All travelers must carry with them proof of citizenship and identification, specifically a machine-readable passport, for return to their own country or for re-entry through another foreign country as required by Bermuda Immigration authorities. This applies to adults as well as children/infants travelling alone or with their parents.
Blue skies with bright sunshine is the default setting for Bermuda’s weather. While the temperatures are generally mild, the island’s weather can be a bit quirky – umbrellas can be going up for brief showers in the West End while people in the East End are basking in sunshine. Out here, you’ll find gentle tradewinds and generous trade-offs: the wind makes for world-class sailing, and rainfall throughout the year keeps the parks and golf courses lush.
