Car Travel

You cannot rent a car in Bermuda. The island has strict laws governing overcrowded roads, so even Bermudians are only allowed one car per household. A popular, albeit possibly somewhat dangerous, alternative is to rent mopeds or scooters , which are better for negotiating the island's narrow roads. If driving a scooter is not your idea of a good time, you may still be in luck: a new and exciting mode of transport has hit the roads of Bermuda. With cockpit-style seats, a centrally located steering wheel, and foot pedals, the two-person Renault Twizys from Current Vehicles are not only safer than mopeds, they're affordable and fun to drive. These mini electric cars are less than 4 feet wide, which makes them the perfect size for Bermuda's narrow roads, and have a range of up to 80 km (50 miles) on a single charge. Explore the island in style, comfort, and emission-free good conscience. The company is in the process of building an island-wide charging network, but until then, you'll need to book your stay at an affiliated hotel in order to get your hands on one of these trendy little vehicles.
