Taxi

Travelers will generally find that Saint Helena taxi service is limited if it is available at all.  Taxis can not be easily located on the street.  They are not even very easy to find in the local yellow pages, with Calistoga Cab ( www.calistogacab.com) being the only major entry found there.  Interestingly, limousine hire is far more common in the area than taxi hire.  (See http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g33... for additional information.)

 Getting around

Because of the lack of availability of taxis, it is virtually necessary to use a rental car for getting around Saint Helena.  (Additional information about getting around the area by car is available online at http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g33... .)  Travelers usually rent cars upon arrival at one of the local airports.  (Airport arrival information is available at http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g33... .)  The airports provide rental car services from all of the major rental car companies such as Budget ( www.budget.com) and National ( www.nationalcar.com).
