Your Bahamian holiday awaits! Secure a cheap rental car from Freeport Airport and start planning an island road trip you’ll never forget.
Freeport is the main city on Grand Bahama, and famous for its oceanfront Lucaya district with pristine beaches, stunning resorts and island shops. Visit the Garden of the Groves, the city’s botanical garden, and grab drinks at Port Lucaya Marina. You can dive under the azure waters to explore Deadman’s Reef, a favourite for snorkelers and scuba divers, or go underwater cave diving for a truly unique experience.
After exploring Freeport, hop in your airport rental car to uncover Grand Bahama’s most beautiful beaches and national parks, home to a wide variety of tropical, native birds.
If you’re flying over to the main island of New Providence, pre-book a rental car for Nassau Airport for more island exploration.
