Hello wonderful people, as always I am so thankful for you stopping by – I hope this post is useful for you in someway, whether you’re planning a trip to Bermuda, or just interested in reading about my experience. Enjoy! x
A couple of weeks ago my friends and I took out the coolest wheels in Bermuda for a spin. I mean it when I say, if you don’t rent one of these babies to cruise around the island in, you’re missing out BIG TIME.
Current Vehicles arrived to Bermuda in April 2017, but started renting out their vehicles to the public in June. Their head office is based outside the Hamilton Princess hotel in town, super convenient and local.
Although this car felt like I was driving a speedy pimped up golf cart, it’s not actually possible to rent one without holding an international driving license.
Inside the eco car are 3 buttons… drive, neutral, reverse, and two peddles. And, although you might be fooled from my photos that these cars only have room for one, you’re wrong…. this nifty Twizy takes two! Amazingly the back isn’t too small and is very breezy (more than the front); but I obviously wasn’t in the back for long, I liked driving it too much…
According to Renault, the manufacturer of Twizys, the battery can last up to 100 kilometers (should pretty much take you around the island). Remarkably, you can get to a speed of 80kms, however due to the wonderfully low speed limit in Bermuda (max 35km, yes..35km) you’re unlikely to go gung-ho in it.
There are various charging points around the island, we took our Twizys to St Georges where there is a charge point located there. The process of charging the Twizy is beyond complicated… ONLY joking, It’s easy peasy! Only consists of sticking a UK plug into the socket of the wall and ta da! Whilst you leave your little car to charge, you can wander around St George’s to indulge yourself with ice cream and fish sandwiches.
The Twizys cost $100 a day, and in my opinion, a much safer option than a rental scooter. Definitely look into it further if you’re in Bermuda, as I said before – it’s a must!
