St. Vincent and the Grenadines Money-Saving Tips

Book Early for Better Prices

For better prices and guaranteed airfare and accommodations, book two to three months in advance, and consider traveling during the shoulder season. If traveling during Christmas, Easter, or Vincy Mas, flights and resorts fill up quickly, so book as early as possible.

Bring Sunscreen

Having a location just 13 degrees north of the equator translates to intense sun on the islands of St.Vincent and the Grenadines, so enjoy it in small doses and apply sunscreen frequently and liberally. 

Money Matters

The official currency of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (or EC$); its exchange rate is pegged to the U.S. dollar. As such, American dollars (but not coins) are widely accepted (though you’ll receive your change in EC dollars).

Factor in Extra Travel Time

Though the island of St. Vincent is only 18 miles long, the terrain is mountainous and roads are windy. Transportation is likely to take longer than one might assume, so budget extra travel time.  

Bikes Can Take a Hike

Though bikes are readily available for rental on St. Vincent, the mountainous terrain does not make for a leisurely cycling experience for those outside of the Tour de France circuit.
