I recently rented a car in Nantucket at Young's and the experience could not have been any better. The process was quick, the car was spotless and the people were quite friendly and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a convenient car rental just off the ferries in Nantucket center.

It was refreshing to be treated like an old friend in the warm, professional yet laid back environment of Young's Bicycle Shop. I rented a car for 2 days at a surprisingly competitive rate for an impeccably clean new Honda. The shop has an old history but a very clean, modern and upbeat look to it with very clear and... More

Young's is a conveniently located (to Steamship Authority, downtown) bike rental shop on Nantucket. It fit our needs perfectly for a weekend wedding. New bikes, helmets, locks and very friendly, fast customer service. Highly recommended.

I have been renting bikes from Youngs Bicycle Shop for at least the last 3 consecutive years I have been on Nantucket, and starting since I first came to the Island many years ago. It struck me last year that they have absolutely no "customer loyalty" program or rewards for repeat renters. Something as easy as 1 free hour bike... More

I thank the reviewer for their observations and constructive suggestions and I thank Trip Advisor for the opportunity to respond. I know I was not at my most patient when the reviewer asked how I planned to reward him and I apologize. I'm sorry that he felt I was complacent and smug. That is not the impression I want to...

Young's Bike Shop was very professional and knowledgeable. The best was the top of the line Cannondale bikes with cushioned seats which made bike riding on some of the more bumpy roads of Nantucket easier. They come with locks and you can choose a helmet if you wish (we didn't). The map provide guided us to the wonderful bike paths... More

This is the third time I have rented bikes at Young's: the first time in 1996 for 23 Girl Scouts exploring the island, then twice with family for week long holidays on the island. Obtaining the bikes is a speedy process and then we are on the road. One trip a few year back we had a broken chain 5... More

A well-run establishment which rents not only bicycles, but also sedans and jeeps. What a great way to spend a day -- rent a vehicle and find your own Nantucket beach for the afternoon.

Don't go to any other bike rental, this one can't be beat. The bikes were extremely comfortable and worked so well, and were clearly well maintained. It was a joy to ride them. The staff are very well trained and were all prompt, friendly and relaxed. They seemed like a happy bunch which is good to see. The staff sized... More

We came late in the day so a lot of bikes were already gone. We needed one for my 11 year old daughter and they pulled the smallest adult bike they had (she is too big for a kids bike). The girl who worked here spent literally a good 15-20 minutes evaluating my daughter on the bike and expressing concern... More
