Bermuda Travel Tips

The following summary information was noted from www.bermuda.com which is a great website on Bermuda. For more detail and information go to www.bermuda.com , then click on Travel, then Travel Tips.

Customs Requirements:

DRUGS & GUNS are NOT tolerated in Bermuda
Currency US$ are readily accepted in Bermuda as the Bermuda $ is at par with the US$.
Legal tender in Bermuda is the Bermuda dollar (BD$), which is divided into 100 cents. The Bermuda dollar is pegged to the US dollar on an equal (one-to-one) basis. This means that US currency is accepted at shops, restaurants, and hotels at equal (face) value. Other foreign currencies are not accepted but may be exchanged at local banks at rates that are set daily.
These are the documents needed to enter Bermuda.
A Return or Onward Ticket or other document of onward documentation to a country to which, at that time, the passenger has right of entry, is required by all visitors.
Passports are the preferred document for entry into Bermuda and are required of all visitors from countries which require a passport for re-entry purposes or for entry through another country to which at that time the passenger has right of entry.
Proof of Citizenship and Identification (including photo ID). All travelers (this applies to adults and children traveling alone or with their parents - see Requirements for Children for additional notes on children traveling with an adult other than parent and/or in the process of adoption) must carry with them proof of citizenship and personal identification (including photo ID) relevant to return to their own country or for re-entry through another foreign country, as required by Bermuda Immigration authorities, in particular.
A. Visitors from the United States

Please note: Passports are the preferred travel document for entry to Bermuda.

(2) Parents of adopted children should be particularly careful that they carry with them the proper documents for their adopted children, especially if the children are of different nationality from the parents. Parents in the process of adopting children are advised not to leave the country with the children until all the legalities and paperwork are finalised.
(3) Children entering Bermuda for the purpose of adoption must be in possession of documents from the Bermuda Department of Immigration confirming their entry into Bermuda for adoption.
Remember, a valid passport is always the best document for any traveler to carry.

Length of Stay:

Most bona fide visitors with a confirmed return ticket and place of accommodation will have no difficulties with Bermuda Immigration Control.
The Bermuda Departure Tax of $20 is included with the airfare when the ticket is purchased.

Transportation:

There are no drive-yourself cars for hire, but visitors can get about easily by taxi, bus, ferry, motor scooter, and by horse and carriage.

Tipping/Gratuities:

In cases where the gratuity is not included in the bill, 15% is the generally accepted amount for most services. A large number of the hotels and guest-houses add a percentage or set amount per person, per day, in lieu of tips to the accommodation bill.
