Jersey may be small, but don’t underestimate its hidden depths. From winding ‘green lanes’ to scenic coastal touring routes, steep cliff top panoramas and cycle routes that hug the coast - if you’re keen to explore, you’ll find the journey just as much part of the experience as the destination. From rental cars to cycle hire, our local bus network or visitor bus tours, discover how easy it is to explore Jersey.

Driving

In Jersey, we drive on the left. The island’s speed limit is set to 40 mph / 64 km per hour and despite its small size, you’ll find plenty to explore with over 350 miles of paved road winding between fields, farms and along the coastline. If you’re planning to drive in Jersey, you’ll need to hold a Certificate of Insurance or an International Green Card, a valid Driving Licence or International Driving Permit (UK International Driving Permits are not valid). Photocopies are not acceptable. If you're bringing your car, you'll need to display a nationality plate on the back of your vehicle.

Tours

Not feeling so energetic? Sit back, relax and enjoy the view of Jersey's coastal lanes and fishing villages with a coach tour from a modern fleet to beautifully restored open top vintage buses. With carefully chosen routes ranging from round-the-island tours to trips to attractions like Jersey War Tunnels or Durrell, getting there will be half the fun.

Just walk

That’s right. Jersey’s small on size, but rich in off-the-beaten-track locations, making it perfect to explore on foot. Enjoy the freedom and uncover a whole island’s worth of unique perspectives and serendipitous discoveries from tree-lined country lanes that open out to spectacular sea views, or finding hidden-away bays and beaches all to yourself.

Cycling

With a network of cycle routes that run beside the coast and along quiet country lanes, hire a bicycle and you’re free to explore. Our recommendation? Download a copy of our cycle map and plan a route, with a picnic stop along the way. Pack your panniers with a picnic from La Belle Gourmande delicatessen in St Aubin or the Central Market in St Helier.

Public Transport

Let someone else take the wheel and use Jersey’s network of public transport to navigate your way around the island. With easy to use and regular services linking the island’s main locations and attractions with the central bus station at Liberation Station, Jersey’s public transport network makes it easy to explore and go where you please. Most buses have easy access for wheelchair users.

Taxis

Let someone else show you the way and take a taxi.  Ranks are conveniently located outside the airport and the harbour; public taxis are meter controlled, and you’d expect to pay less than £20 for a fare between the airport and St. Helier.  Different rate tariffs apply to both public rank taxis and booked cabs depending on the time and day and public holidays.
