Car Rental from Club Med

Hi all! I'm staying at Club Med Turkoise next week and I want to rent a car, probably just for a day or two to explore. It's my first time on Turks and Caicos, and I'm trying to find out what car rental places I could walk to in order to pick the car up. Could anyone let me know what car rental spots are nearby to Club Med? Do any of the rental spots drop the cars off (and if so, how do I arrance that?)? Also wondering what company is the most trustworthy/has the best prices? Are the any pros to getting a golf cart over a car or vice-versa? Any vehicle rental tips would be very welcome!

Would also love recommendations for what not to miss on a first trip to Turks and Caicos!

Thanks in advance for any advice!

You want to contact Grace Bay Car Rentals for bringing that vehicle to you in the Club Med parking lot for you to see/explore the Island . There's a whole bunch of golf carts across the road for you to use playing golf on their course. One's for the road & one's for the grass. That's the difference. What to not miss? Chalk Sound( a brilliant turquoise lagoon filled with many of little rocky Islands) on the other side of the Island. DR. JIM

Thanks for the tip about Grace Bay rentals.

I asked about the golf cart because some of the car rental companies (Avis for instance) rent out Golf Carts, so I suspect the Avis rented golf carts aren't intended for use strictly on the golf course, since one doesn't usually rent their cart for golfing from a car rental company.

It was a pun intended that you should only really rent a vehicle(car, jeep, van, SUV, etc) to see/explore the Island. The distances and most roads are fairly dangerous to golf carts. Locals aren't too friendly in yielding to golf carts or any slower moving vehicle including motor scooters. I have been coming to Provo since the 1970's and know the Island well. Stick with just renting a car for the roads. DR. JIM
