Detailed information on transport in Samoa. Find out how to get into the country and how to get around whether by land, sea or air.
Land: Taxis from the airport to Apia are a hefty 50 tala (buses run but not on Sundays) while journeys in and around Apia are a far more palatable 5 tala. Public buses around the islands leave in the mornings but don’t run on Sundays. Hitchhiking is the norm; simply hold out your hand, palm down, and move it up and down as if telling someone to ‘slow down’. Cars will usually stop even if they can’t offer a lift.
If you want to rent a car during your stay then we suggest Rentalcars to find local car rental companies.
Sea: Samoa Shipping between the islands or to Pago Pago, American Samoa.
Air: If flying with Fiji Airways, check before boarding that your luggage is on board. They’ve been known to offload baggage lastminute without warning. With that in mind, always pack a change of clothes in your carry-on luggage.
