Getting To & Around Bermuda
When you plan a trip to Bermuda, the first thing is to ensure that you have all your travel documents in place. Unless all your required travel documents are in order, you won't be allowed entry into the island once you reach a cruise port or the international airport in Bermuda, and that's the worst situation you want to be in. The required travel documentation varies depending on one's nationality. Although just a valid passport works for citizens of US, UK and Canada visiting as tourists, but others require more documentation including multi re-entry transit visa as well as ensuring a minimum validity of passport to visit Bermuda as tourist.

Dear Sir, I live in Sweden. When is the best time to visit Bermuda? How long should one stay? Is the island cheap or expensive? Should one rent a car or bicycle, moped or a small car? What is the food like? Is it better to get a total inclusive package or go shopping for different hotels, airline companies? Best regards,
Hello, Best time to visit Bermuda is between May to October, after that it becomes a little cold and the tourist attractions mostly close down. Tourist visa is offered for up to 3 months, but 4-5 days of stay should give you a good flavor of the island. If you are used to driving along the left side of the road, then renting a scooter will give you all the flexibility. It is relatively cheap and you can explore all the nooks and crannies of the island.
Most things including food in the island are relatively expensive, since almost everything here is imported. So compared to the U.S, Canada and even England, the island is more expensive. You will get all sorts of food here including British, Italian, Continental, American, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and of course Bermudian.
Only Grotto Bay Beach Resort presently offers All Inclusive
package (but not air tickets). You can take a look at that. It is better to shop for airlines, hotels, food and transport separately. Hope this helps!
