There are a number of taxis on the island, which are handy when you want to go somewhere more off the beaten track or when there is a group of you travelling; however, they are not the cheapest form of transport.

Car or Scooter

Not the cheapest option but should you want to spend a day sightseeing the whole island or perhaps take a trip over to Lastovo, hiring a car or scooter is a great option. You can hire cars and scooters from a number of local travel agencies on Korcula.
