The main coast road of Rarotonga is just 31 kilometres in circumference. While we have a good bus service it mostly keeps to the main road and you waste valuable holiday time waiting for and sitting on a bus with others. There is probably another 30 – 40 kilometres of inner and back roads the bus misses out. So if you want to explore the whole island and be independent the best way is to rent a car or scooter. This is especially important at night as you will want to go to and from restaurants at your leisure. We recommend Island Car & Bike Hire and can arrange hire for you when you get here.
