It depends on where you are staying and what you want to do. Either is a viable option in Antigua.

It depends on how long you'll be staying, and how often you'll be travelling.

If you won't be travelling much, and are doing all inclusive, i'd advise taking a cab.

If you are, then renting a car is probably the way to go. If you rent long enough, you can get it down to 30-35 US per day or so.

Noticed you have a lovely baby on your picture and you are from NY so I will take this as the USA?

If you are staying for one week my response would differ from two weeks

Also as one poster suggests do you intend to travel much?

where are you staying?

All of the people on this site will help and we certainly took advice often via PM messages.

WE hired a car , took a trip to Barbuda and a circumnavigation and we stayed 10 days

Great info! Margsi, I hope you don't mind if I jump in with a rental question too. (And I love your avatar!)

We are tentatively planning on renting a car for 2-3 days of our 7-day trip. We'll be staying in Antigua during Sailing Week and I'm wondering if we should book one now or take a chance when we get there. I understand that Sailing Week is really busy but I have no idea if the week affects rental availability. Cannot wait to explore Antigua!
