Car Rental in the Bahamas

If you have a valid US, Canadian or British driver’s license, you can rent a car – even on the Out Islands, although what you get there might bring on a mild heart attack. Be sure to check the car’s condition before you drive away.

Rates vary from around $75 to $100 per day, but are much cheaper if rented by the week. Special rates can be arranged through most agencies in advance of travel. In Nassau, the world-wide agencies – Avis (, Budget (, Dollar ( and Hertz ( – as well as several local companies, are found at the airport, hotels and several downtown locations. In Freeport, there’s also an Avis office in the International Bazaar.

Remember, Bahamians drive on the left side of the road. It can at first be a little disconcerting, but you’ll soon get used to it.
