TravelTime contact details

The government is making a phone number and email address available for people who want to make enquiries about travelling off island while the borders remain closed.

The ‘TravelTime’ phone number is 649-6913 and it will be manned Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5pm.

In a press release, the government noted that the online form at www.exploregov.ky/traveltime remains the primary means for coordinating travel, as well as managing the government isolation facilities for people returning to the Cayman Islands.
