I'm helping my parents plan a 2-day golf trip to Nantucket, and I just found out it's $450 (!!) round trip for them to bring their car on the Steamship Authority ferry. But, they need a car to transport their golf clubs. Does it make sense for them rent a car on the island, rather than bring their own? Looks like the only car rental place is at the Nantucket (ACK) airport, so I don't know about the logistics of getting to the airport from the ferry terminal once they arrive on the island. Are cabs readily available? Also, given that the island is very small, and the cost of a rental car is about 100$ a day, should they forego a car and just take a cab everywhere? Mainly, they plan to play at the Siasconset and Miacomet golf courses, which are about 8 miles from each other, and stay at a hotel somewhere in the middle.
In case someone suggests that they fly to Nantucket and rent a car from there -- They do not want to fly, because it's too much hassle to get to Logan.
Thanks in advance for your help!
