The Transport in Samoa includes one international airport situated on the north west coast of Upolu island, paved highways reaching most parts of the two main, one main port in the capital Apia and two ports servicing mainly inter island ferries for vehicles and passengers between the two main islands, Upolu and Savai'i. On Upolu, taxis can be a useful transportation option for day tripping; however, the same can’t be said for taxis on Savai’i, which are only convenient for short trips. It always pays to have the correct change as drivers can be (perhaps too conveniently) relied upon not to have any. If you find a driver you hit it off well with early on, it can be worth getting their telephone number and using their service during your stay. You may be able to negotiate a decent day rate that compares favourably with a hire car. Local buses are cheap and run all over the islands frequently (apart from on Sundays).
