KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Nassau

  • What better way to feel the freedom of island life than in the air conditioned comfort of your own car and not stuck waiting for public transport with busy packs of locals and tourists. Car hire in Nassau is your obvious choice if you want to have the independence to travel wherever you want, when you want, and also do some further exploring to less touristy spots in your own wheels.
  • Car hire in Nassau is made simple if you collect your car when you arrive at the main airport of Lynden Pindling International. There are a select amount of major car companies operating from the airport like Avis, Hertz, Virgo and more. Rather choose your preferred car before you arrive so you are guaranteed the car you want. You can collect your car right at the airport and make your way out to an island paradise.
  • Island driving is quite relaxed and the roads are well maintained. Make sure you brush up on the basic road rules and check speed limits. If you want to drive further on the outskirts of the island there are well kept major roads for you to get to your next destination. Although driving on an island is not like driving in a major city, you still need to exercise caution in a new city with strange roads and be aware of the locals who sometimes have their own local road rules.
  •  There aren’t any major difficulties driving in Nassau but it has been said that sometimes the locals do no always obey the road rules, do not indicate and traffic can get congested on small island roads. As long as you are aware that people might make a move that is not indicated and you drive with caution, you should have no real issues. Small island roads can get busy so try and avoid obvious congestions near to popular tourist destinations at peak hours.
  • Book your car hire in Nassau at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Nassau are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

Use Avis only. Professional. And perfect. Never budget. They’re not affiliated in the Bahamas

Good, reliable car that has seen some miles, but it was great value for our money, and the staff made it super easy.

This was one of the most atrocious and stressful experiences. I’m shocked at how this is able to still operate. The manager/owner Adeline Chee-A-Tow laughed in my face when I told her it’s unacceptable. The car was confirmed. But they didn’t have any cars. So after spending an hour and 50$ to get to the office. I was suggested to take a bus back to my hotel to save some money. I had the BUDGET offices close this office. The 3rd party website was just as useless. Saying “we can’t find any reservations sorry. At least they didn’t charge you” Shut this business down

Read the reviews! Took a cab 30 minutes from the airport to this location and they did not have my car had to get a cab back to the airport location to get a car. Waste of $100 on cab fare.

Pros:

Nothing! Whilst the staff were pleasant the car was a wreck, the seats were torn, the front bumper was bolted on with 4screws, my credit card was charged €400 but when I dropped the car back I was told it would be 7 days before I would get the balance released back to me. The car smelled strongly for the duration, the seats internally were rusted, and based on the pictures I took on receiving the car, it had been in an “altercation” (or several) prior to my renting it. When I collected the car I was told there were some dents on it that they were aware of, however as I checked several dents and scrapes were not documented, I returned to the office and the nice lady came and visually inspected the car with me, then she added several extra pieces of information to the sheet and initialed it. As it was now late we took the car. As we drove around there was a constant rattle from the boot... the only saving grace being we were in New Providence for one whole day (it cost us $12 to fill it so we didn’t travel much partly due to the wreck we had rented. We were very disappointed and doubt we would ever book with budget ever again

The car got amazing miles per gallon and was simple to operate.

Cons:

Their offices were closed in spite of us having a pickup scheduled. They then made us taxi all the way out to the airport to pick up our car from a different location after we were finally able to reach them. Called maybe 10-15 times on the day of our reservation and only got through once to finally get our car 6 hours after our initial reservation started
