Frequently Asked Questions

Which driving license do I need in Tahiti?

You don’t need to have an international driving license. For drivers over 21 with a current driver’s license, rental automobiles are typically offered at airports. Drivers under 25 typically needed to have major credit cards.

Tahiti may be the only viable island where renting a car is necessary due to the island’s size and the availability of circular island trips. You might decide against renting a car because of the tiny size of many islands and the distinctiveness of several circle island tours.

Where can I exchange money in Tahiti?

Tahiti, Moorea, Raiatea, Huahine, and Bora Bora are among the Society Islands that have ATMs. If you are unable to locate any, you can still obtain cash by using the cash advance service at the counter of a post office (OPT) when you produce identification.

Do I need warm clothes in Tahiti?

No, even at night, Tahiti’s temperature is not suited to long-sleeved shirts or long pants. It may be cooler in air-conditioned spaces, such as an airplane or airports.

Do I need smart clothes in Tahiti?

In the evenings, yes, if you are dining at a posh hotel or resort. You can wear whatever you like because there is no dress requirement at average restaurants.

What is the purpose of my UV bathing shirt?

You can shield yourself from the sun without using sunscreen if you wear a shirt with UV protection (or even a regular t-shirt). This is especially beneficial when snorkeling or renting a boat for an excursion.
