There is no need to hire a car because you can catch the local bus from a bus stop on the main road 2 minutes walk away (via private path) from Porters Court. Buses are frequent during the day and early evening and run from Speightstown in the north to Bridgetown and beyond in the south. Local buses are great fun and cheap ($2 Bbd for any distance) and will take you to most places on the island. If you decide to hire a car, the villa has its own free parking space, right outside the front door. A car can be delivered to the villa or be collected from the airport.
