Welcome To Eleuthera

When you arrive in Eleuthera, don't expect to see Hertz, Avis, National or Budget car rental signs anywhere. You also won't have to worry about credit cards, a deposit, insurance or complicated contracts, everything is often covered with a simple handshake. However, because credit cards are not usually accepted for car rental, you had better make sure that you have enough cash to pay for your rental when you return it. The person who rented you the vehicle will accept Bahamian or US cash, or any combination of both currencies.

Eleuthera Car Rental is an exception as they will gladly accept your credit card for both gas and car rental charges.

You can ask anyone at the airport where you arrive or at the hotel where you're staying and you'll have a recent, air conditioned car at your disposal in no time. Daily rates are usually around $80 US and that includes unlimited mileage but you pay for your own gas. If you plan to visit some of Eleuthera's spectacular but elusive beaches, you might want to inquire about renting a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Some of the roads to the more secluded beaches can be a little rough.

Unless you plan to spend your entire vacation on the beach at your hotel, you should consider negotiating a better rental rate by renting a car for your entire stay. It can make a big difference to the daily rate if you take a vehicle for an extended period of time. You might even be able to negotiate a rate of $50 or $60 a day if you rent for seven days or more.

There is no public transportation on Eleuthera, so if you don't rent a car your only other options are a taxi, walking or hitchhiking. Some resorts have bikes you can use, or rent, but biking in Eleuthera isn't that easy unless you're used to biking in remote locations.

If you plan to visit Eleuthera during the high season months of January, February or March, you may want to consider reserving a car when you book your room or house rental. This way you're more likely to get the kind of vehicle you want for the time you want. Either the resort or rental agency will be able to arrange the rental for you or give you some people to call so you can make the arrangements yourself.
