Rental Cars on Andros

Rental cars help tourists cover a lot of ground on Andros

There is a lot of land to cover on Andros. At 2,300 square miles, it is the largest island in the Bahamas, and the fifth largest overall in the Caribbean. Much of this space remains undeveloped, which means in many areas public transportation is lacking. For this reason, renting a car is the recommended course of action for those who will be doing a lot of exploring.

Renting a Car

From coast to coast, there are numerous places to rent a car on Andros, all of which are locally owned and operated. In many cases, this means you'll encounter an informal rental agreement that involves the shake of a hand rather than a signed document. If this makes you uncomfortable, simply ask for something in writing. You'll need to be over the age of 21 to rent at each location, as well as be in possession of a valid driver's license from your country of origin. Since every location is different, make sure to call ahead and ask if there are any specific regulations you need to be aware of.
