Known for being the most scenic island in the Bahamas, Long Island is one destination where you'll definitely want to rent a car in order to see all of the sites. Where on other islands in the Bahamas you may be able to do so on foot, because this destination is about 80 miles long you'll need four wheels to go from end to end.
In order to rent a car on Long Island, you'll need to be over the age of 21 and have a valid driver's license. Those staying for longer than three months will need an International Driver's License. Every rental car agency on the island is locally owned, and thus have their own rules and regulations so you should always call and ensure you have everything you need to rent when you arrive. For the most part, rental agreements are informal and may not even involve any paperwork unless you specifically request that there be some.
Once the vehicle is in your possession, make sure to drive on the left side of the road as you would if you were driving in the United States. Also, make sure to budget a little extra money for gas, because it can cost nearly double the price that you'd pay in the U.S. to fill up.
