Golf Cart Rentals on Harbour Island Bahamas

Who Should I Rent A Golf Cart From?

The golf cart is the primary choice of transportation on Harbour Island Bahamas. The unofficial estimate for number of golf carts for rent on the island is over 800. Another unofficial source stated there were "over 3000 registered carts." There are many sizes to choose from depending on your transportation needs. Many rental places will offer the "7th day free" when renting on a weekly basis. If you are on a budget and you have to pay for the gas, fill the tank up at the government boat dock before returning the rental.

Certain details are worth paying attention to before reserving and accepting a cart - does it have a windshield, is it a newer rather than older cart, does it have working lights, horn, emergency brake, etc. Don't be shy about asking to take a cart for a short spin before accepting it. Ask for a better cart or maybe look for another vendor if you are not happy with what you are renting.

It is best to make advance reservations for golf cart rentals during Harbour Island's busy seasons. It is also a good idea to ask your rental contact or hotel who they recommend and whether they can make reservations for you. Most of the hotels can include the charges in the bill at the end of your stay so you don't have to pay up front. The hotels have an interest in having you enjoy your stay so they know how to take care of your needs.

It depends on the vendor. If you do have to pay for gas, you can pump your own in a few places and it may be cheaper. If you are going to pump your own gas, you may need to have a key to get to the gas tank on the golf cart.

This is a very good question to ask. See if there are two emergency telephone numbers just in case. Find out where their headquarters is located on the island. The point is, you don't want to waste time with a busted golf cart when you are on vacation. The sooner it gets fixed, the better.
