Located at the gates to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar fuses local culture with international influences throughout its architecture, cuisine, and traditions. With Upper Rock Nature Reserve as it’s most well known and distinctive tourist attraction, there is no end of outdoor adventures to be had on this bustling peninsula.
With the whole of Gibraltar only spanning 5km by 1.2km, getting around is pretty simple as you’ll be travelling either by foot, bus, or car.
There are two main taxi ranks in Gibraltar, one outside the airport terminal - known as the Frontier - the other in Casemates Square. Taxis are charged by the metre and if you wish to book in advance you will be charged an extra £5 on top of this. They also operate a 25 hour radio taxi service so that you can call for a taxi at any time of the day. You can find all of the details you need on Gibraltar Taxi Association, how to book and pricing. You can even book yourself a tour while you’re there!
Car hire is available at the airport through Avid and Auto Aguirre Rent A Car. Driving in Gibraltar is a unique experience due to the very narrow roads, so if you’d like to learn more about this it’s worth looking at the Visit Gibraltar website for more information.
Probably the easiest and most affordable way to travel around Gibraltar is by bus. There are 10 different bus routes available, 8 of which are run by Gibraltar Bus Company and can easily take you from the top to the bottom of the country. Prices are cheap with an adult day pass costing only £2.50/€3.30, which will give you access to all of the routes which can be found on their website. The other two routes, Route 5 and Route 10, are managed by Citibus and have stops just outside the airport terminal. To use these two routes you will need to purchase separate tickets to the routes provided by Gibraltar Bus Company, the prices for which are equally as reasonable, offering day tickets, return tickets, and multi-trip tickets which they have available on their website.
The most cost and time effective way of getting around for tourists is to get a Hopper ticket. This ticket allows you to have unlimited access to all routes, lasts for 6 months, and costs only £6.60 (including fee) - the perfect solution to your travel needs!
