Traveling to Charlottetown

 

Prince Edward Island is in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, north of Nova Scotia.

It is a beautiful land of white and red beaches, some sandy, some rocky, with beautiful rolling hills and excellent golf courses and bicycle trails. See PEI Tourism for more reasons to come!

The three ways to get to the Island are by plane, ferry from Nova Scotia, or drive across the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick.

Charlottetown is in the middle of the Island, about a 45 minute drive from the Confederation Bridge.

Charlottetown Airport - about $16 taxi from airport to downtown Charlottetown, the airport is just a few minutes' drive to the conference hotels and site

You may also consider flying into Moncton, NB, about 2 hours away and rent a car from there. This is a much larger airport with many more international flight options. However, you will incur a $42.50 per passenger car charge to cross the Confederation Bridge when you return (crossing to the Island is free).

See the local information/maps page for a Google map of the area.

Car Rental with a bit of mileage

Hi all. Looking forward to a trip to the land of green gables and red sand... In fact, we're flying in a few days early, and meeting up with some friends who will be camping in Summerside. I've looked for Car rentals, but most are expensive and only come with 50km per day. Even rent-a-wreck is $20 a day, plus taxes, and 50km per day, and I have to take a taxi to charlottetown to get one. Anybody local have a vehicle they might like to 'lend/rent/trade for Ontario maple syrup/you choose' for the first part of that week? Email me at dhamilton@wlu.ca Thanks don
