Bahamas Scooter Rentals

Several scooter rental companies are available in Nassau as well as Grand Bahama. In Nassau, riding a scooter is tricky because of the road conditions ... roads are often crowded particularly in the downtown area, sometimes quite narrow, winding and with different elevations.

Also remember that you need to drive on the left side of the road in Bahamas. So scooter ride is recommended only if you are an experienced rider. Otherwise better to rent a car. 
On an average, a scooter would rent for $35 per hour. However for more number of hours, the average hourly rate comes down... for example average rental rate for 2 hours is $45, for 4 hours is $65, for 8 hours is $85 and so on. The rates and packages do vary between rental companies. 
Some companies also offer daily or 2-3 day special rate. There is separate charge for insurance (around $10) and full tank fuel which is provided at the beginning (around $10). 
Taxes (VAT) would be further added. Most companies would also take a security deposit (of around $20) which is given back when you return the scooter. Up to two persons can ride a scooter. Helmets, instructions (often very short to none), island map etc are usually provided. 
Note that you need to have a valid license to drive a scooter and minimum age should be 21. For driving cars, the minimum age required is 21 (some companies insist for a minimum age of 25). Helmets, basic driving instructions, map etc are given by the operators.
