You cannot reach Freeport by taking a flight. Many travelers don’t really need to rent a car in The Bahamas, especially those who are coming for a few days of soaking in the sun at their resort’s own beach. In Nassau and Freeport, you can easily rely on public transportation or taxis. These cabs, for the most part, are metered — but they take cash only, no credit cards. Taxis are usually shared, often with the local residents. Out Island taxis aren’;t metered, so you must negotiate the fare before you get in.
