Martha's Vineyard Travel Guide
Although traffic can be bad during the season, it can be handy to have a car to see all of Martha's Vineyard and travel freely. Instead of bringing one over on the Steamship Authority ferry from Woods Hole (the only ferry service that transports cars—expensively), it's sometimes easier and more economical to rent one once you're on the island for a few days of exploring, particularly during the busy season when car reservations on the ferry are hard to come by. But don't expect a bargain for rentals once on island either; expect to pay about $180 per day for a jeep. The island does its best to discourage extra automobile traffic.
