As the temperatures didn't call for biking, we decided to rent a car for 1 day to explore the island. The staff at Young's was very friendly and helpful. It only took a few min to sign the necessary paperwork. Dropping off the car the next morning was uncomplicated as well.

During our weekend on the island, we rented bikes and a jeep here. Convenient location and everyone who worked here was very helpful.

Thank you for renting bikes and a Jeep at Young’s and for following up with this review of our business. We saw your other reviews of Nantucket and it looks like you had a great vacation on the island. The fall is an excellent time to visit and we hope you’ll return again soon. More

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...

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.
