Flights to Beef Island
Trips to Tortola
Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands and a nation whose economy is highly based on providing services to visitors. This makes the city a vital place to do business, and competition among airlines has led to many available cheap flights to Tortola. Air traffic to the city is handled by the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, located eight miles east of Tortola, on Beef Island. Airlines such as American Eagle Airlines, BVI Airways and Cape Air serve this airport, and Beef Island connects to Tortola by the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.
Transportation from the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport
Taxis and rental cars provide transportation into the city from the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport. Taxis into the town center, located at Road Town, will cost about $27 for a single passenger using Tortola Taxi. National, Hertz and Avis provide rental car services, and renters must be over 25. If you intend to remain in the territory for longer than 30 days, you must purchase a temporary driver's license. Rental vehicle pick-ups and drop-offs should be arranged with the car rental service before arrival.
The Weather in Tortola
Tortola's weather features little seasonal change, with highs in the mid-90s during the day and evening lows in the low 70s. Hurricane season lasts from June to November, and the area sees a growth in rainfall during that time. Dress for an island visit should be lightweight to handle the heat with a light jacket for cooler evenings.
Things to Do in Tortola
There is plenty to do year-round in Tortola, and the northern beaches are especially popular with tourists. In July and August, the Emancipation Festival provides high incentives to find deals on cheap flights to Tortola using Orbitz.com, with music, good food and a sinking dingy race to round off the fun.
