Things You Need to Know About Flights to Trinidad
It’s not common to find non-stop links from the UK to Trinidad, but there are also oodles of indirect connections to pick from. They typically involve a stop in another Caribbean destination like St Lucia or Antigua but could also mean going via a large North American hub like Miami or New York. That’s because there’s a whole host of different airlines in the offing, ranging from the likes of UK flag-carrier British Airways to transatlantic specialist Virgin Atlantic. Travel times are usually in the region of 10.5 or 11 hours each way.
The main airport in Trinidad is the Piarco International Airport in Port of Spain. It serves just under 2 million passengers annually and is conveniently located just to the west of the island’s capital. From there, you should find it easy to bag a car rental to take you to the coast, or a taxi transfer to any of the main resort towns. Travellers with a UK passport won’t need a visa as period of 90 days visa-free access is granted on arrival.
Best Time to Visit Trinidad
You can usually find Trinidad soaked in sun and steamy temperatures in the high 20s just when the British winter is bringing rain and chills across the UK. So, if you’re looking to trade a potential white Christmas for a white-sand-beach Christmas, flights to Trinidad in December could just be the perfect pick. If you’re not the sort to share your sand space with other sun seekers, it might be better to consider coming once the early spring Carnival has finished. Thankfully, the weather stays pretty good until August time.
